The bad news: if only SP had shipped in 2014! The good news: next year's Awards will be 7bit's!

I might have one or two spares though, depending if GON claims his 'nut.

Fancier than you did it last year. I got mine in an envelope, along with a letter threatening me with attacks from local ducks if I were to ever sell the wingnut or give it away! I assume that's still there, or on the back of those cards…

There wasn't a letter, just this request in the pm sent to winners. :D
Although the Wingnut is an unconditional gift, I kindly request that if you ever get bored of it, to return it to deskthority for a next winner, instead of trading, selling or auctioning it, so it remains an exclusive award only for winners, and not for Clack Factory collectors.

A lovely photo, not because of the clacks but for what they represent.

The thing about the Wingnuts that no other token would achieve is its black market value, thanks to the clickclack tulip mania, as long as it lasts. Consider the value of an extremely rare clickclack for those crazy collectors, and then consider the silver Wingnut. Once you have done that, consider the golden one, with only two out there.

In that case we should auction a wingnut for club funds.

I'm thinking fuchsia wings and bolt and neon blue nut, make it as hideous as possible.

Still slightly tempted to sell this year's spare Wingnuts to buy my own island.

Btw, so far (as far as I've been made aware) only one Wingnut was sold to a collector: ... msg1414043
Just like the Oscars, to do such a thing, the selling winner must have been drunk, broke and in the gutter, and needed to finance his/her next bottle of cheap wine (or worse drugs)!

You should just start giving them out to club members starting with the lowest membership number first. This is the only way I'll ever get a wingnut :)

The trick is to suggest new categories you think you can win. Like my spectacular success with the Best Photo contest this year… ahem… well, I got to nominate the winner at least!

That kind of psychological dirt won't ever wash off. You can't buy back your pride. Don't do it, kids.

Sssh! Someone will PM me asking for an invisible character. I already lost my Greek exclusive, to a real Greek albeit…

The good of the Best Review award is that it's open to other people to join. Come on, I dare ya!

Or how about "2nd 3rd or 4th most IBM Keyboards"

I'm sure I can win one of those with my 40+ boards. Webwit probably leads there.

I'm still disappointed that this innovation has come at the cost of modding...

The keyboard has the right physical layout for me, but no way to remap it using PS/2 or do away with the built-in Fn key. :(
