IFC Awards 2020: Public Voting

This thread is moderator-approved.

IFCA 2020 is here

Greetings IFC! Welcome to the 2020 Infinite Flight Community Awards, co-hosted by @ran, @Thunderbolt, & @JarrettFlies. We’re honored to be hosting IFCA 2020, the IFC tradition of recognizing community users every year! While 2020 hasn’t been the greatest year, we certainly can look back to several amazing moments. But you may ask, what is IFCA?


Well, to answer your question, the Infinite Flight Community Awards, AKA IFCA, is a collection of awards that are given out to community members every year for contributing to making the experience on the IFC better for all users! This year marks the 4th year of awards, with IFCA having started in 2016.

Voting Rounds

If you have already seen an IFCA thread, then you know that our awards are given out based on voting! Having worked with @Marc and the moderators, we decided to keep our schedules in-line to the previous year’s schedule.

We have consolidated voting into two forms of two sections each (Total of 4 sections). You will have nearly 2 weeks to complete both forms & vote for the IFC members you think best represent the qualities that one would have to receive the awards that are given out (list below).

Without further ado, here are the dates you need to know!

  • December 9th, 2020 - Public Voting Opens (Part One: User & Forum-Based)
  • December 11th, 2020 - Public Voting Opens (Part Two: Organization & Game-Based)
  • December 25th, 2020 - Voting Closed
  • December 26th - 31st - Votes Counting
  • January 1st - Awards Ceremony

I was literally just looking at 2019’s. Can’t wait to see winners :)


Why do you always forget the best IFVARB Leader award? Most likely because you already know… @Jon_H


Just a note to all, I’ve made questions required on the form because we would like the votes to be in relatively consistent numbers on each form.


So glad to be part of this in 2020! I can’t wait to see the outcome!


Just a suggestion: I think that all of the fields should be optional. I, for example, don’t know my favorite artist, so I either need to write in a random name there or pass on voting entirely.


Yep, I’ve heard that quite a few. For the moment, you can type N/A if you’re completing up the thread and don’t have a specific option, but I’ll push out new changes by tomorrow morning (it’s currently 11 PM here & several tasks remaining) to make all questions optional.

Hope that helps you all in the meanwhile, sorry about the inconvenience!


Funny story I actuallly dont know that many names so i cant vote


This looks very interesting I can’t wait to see the results 👀


Casting my vote!


Interesting. Voted!


It would be a crime against Infinite Flight if people didn’t vote @Maxmustang for ‘Top 3 IFC Users Of The Year’.

Should be interesting as it is ever year. Really nice job on the thread, it’s sleek and formal, I actually really love it.
