Charizard, one of the vote counters, released a public statement:

Like I said, the System Wars Awards happened this year against all odds. And this was thanks to the combined efforts of many, many users. A whole lot of whom came together and decided to throw away everything else they were doing to plan, coordinate, and then undertake such a massive undertaking. These users deserve to be recognized and acknowledged for what they did. So, in no order, thanks to Stevo_the_gamer, whose banner and background designs were used for this award; to Blabadon, who came up with many of the Award titles. To charizard1605 and freedomfreak, who spent hours counting all the votes. Also, thanks to Badosh, funsohng, CaseyWegner, timmy00, Verbtex, MusicalMac, and AdobeArtist, without whose help and support this would have all fallen apart. And a very special thanks to our (only) two time System Wars King, DarkLink77, who set the entire thing in motion and ensured it would happen.

A special mention must also be made of psymon100, jonwh18, and Soulitane, all of whom rose to the occasion magnificently when some urgent help was needed to ensure that the Awards would occur as scheduled.

Most of all, thanks to everyone who voted, thanks to everyone who participated. It’s only special because you make it so. So, above all else, thank you System Wars.
