Trophies coming soon!

Hello everyone! I’m UpsilonAerospace.

As you well know, Kerbal Space Program 1.0 is coming out soon. I can say without a doubt that the many and varied YouTubers in our community have contributed to KSP’s success. They’ve taught players new tips and tricks, showed off some seriously awesome and often inspiring creations, and made people laugh and cry.

I want to take a moment to commemorate the many YouTubers who help make our game great. It’s time to find the best YouTubers in KSP. Are you ready?

The Oscar-B Awards!

~~~

This is a community contest to show off the best YouTubers in KSP. The winners in each category will get a personalized .craft file of the trophy shown above, but more importantly, they will receive a little more fame and recognition in the Kerbal community.

Because all of the entries to this challenge will likely be great, I strongly recommend that you check them all out and maybe even like their videos or subscribe to their channels! After all, they’ve all spent a lot of work and deserve some attention.

There will be two stages to this process: nominating entries and voting for them. The first stage, which will last for two weeks, involves submitting names of KSP YouTubers and YouTube videos that fit into select categories. The second stage, which will last for another two weeks, is simply voting for the best entry in each category. (These dates may be open to revision, depending on the number of entries received and the overall voting process.)

~~~

There are a few rules that must be followed when nominating people. Please read these carefully!

Rules:

  • Each person is only allowed to nominate one person and/or one video per category for this award. If someone has already been nominated for a category and you nominate him for the same category, you’re wasting your nomination!
  • You can nominate the same person to multiple categories, if appropriate. If you see an Up-and-Coming YouTuber who also qualifies for the Best Comedy Channel award, for example, feel free to nominate the person for both!
  • You can vote for yourself, if you want.
  • Your nomination must include at minimum: The title of the YouTube channel, a link to the channel, and the awards you are nominating the channel for. If you’re nominating a video, then please substitute the channel link with either a link to the video or the embedded video. If you want to explain why you nominated the person and/or video, it’s likely your nomination may gain more votes!

I'm going to repeat the first rule, because it's important and not many people seem to be heeding it.

Each person is only allowed to nominate one person and/or one video per category for this award. If someone has already been nominated for a category and you nominate him for the same category, you’re wasting your nomination!

Got it? Great. Let the nominations begin!

pandoras kitten. Creator of an incredible variety of gorgeous craft (and great videos), pandoras kitten knows what it takes to make a video truly exceptional.

MisterFister. MisterFister combines behind-the-scenes YouTube knowledge with an open mind and a willingness to judge fairly.

Xacktar. Xacktar is a hilarious YouTuber whom many of you already know. I may or may not have been bribed with snacks in this application. :)

Added. :)

Even though the greats of KSP (Scott Manley, Nassault, Danny2462, Heretic391, etc.) will likely be chosen first, there are a lot of other channels out there. I hope that this nomination process will uncover some real gems that few people know about.

Thanks for your submissions!

[EDIT:]

I nominate Danny2462 for the "Best Comedy Channel" and Scott Manley for the "Best Educational Channel".

Unfortunately, you're only allowed to nominate one person and/or one video (see rules.) I'll just put you down for Scott Manley because Danny's been mentioned already, mmkay?

by maccollo. Completely insane.

I would like to nominate Wooks for best inactive channel. He's posted here and there, but not often. I would suggest a "best video series" award too as I know of many entries that could win that.

I hope to see my name and Upsilons' up here ^-^

I, too, nominate

by maccollo for "Best Video Overall". I have watched this video about 10 times for inspiration while building a rocket :). I realize this has already been voted for, so I am also ok with
(also by maccollo). I just felt that Flags and Footprints on Venus is by far the most astonishing video. Edited by JackDugan

I dunno, I guess I'll nominate Scott Manley for Best Overall Channel. I mean, he does tutorials, he does LPs, and he does challenge videos too! He's taught me a lot, for sure.

Thanks for your entries so far, guys! I really appreciate them.

Just YouTube? Can we include Twitch?

I'm going to say 'no' to Twitch right now, because I view it as a bit of a different genre, and one outside the scope of this contest. Maybe after this is over, I'll do one of these for Twitch.

Also, I'm not sure whether HOCGaming counts as a KSP YouTube channel anymore, since he decided to not make any more KSP videos. Should I put him under "Best Inactive Channel," because he's inactive in KSP right now?

Awesome idea, Upsilon!

I'd like to nominate Achroma for Best Artistic Channel.

Since it is one of my favorite KSP vids, then I'll nominate this specific one for Best Artistic Video: Boombox

Awesome idea, Upsilon!

Thanks! I think that when (not if) you guys get nominated, you're not unlikely to win in your respective fields. I personally doubt I'll win anything, as my channel doesn't even really fit into one of the categories listed above. Oh well.

I'm probably going to create several videos, as suggested by benjee10 in a PM. First, I'll work on briefly showcasing every channel that has been nominated. Maybe just a 5-second clip of one of their videos that strikes me as cool.

I'll probably take a preliminary vote and narrow each category to the 3 or 5 best entries, and make a longer and more detailed version of those. Hopefully, at this point I can actually have each of the YouTubers on the list make a 20-second-ish clip of why to select their channels/videos, which I can then stitch together. (I doubt the giants of KSP would respond to my humble requests, but it's worth a try!)

Finally, I'll make a video showcasing the winners, along with sending them a .craft file of their shiny Oscar-B awards. I would 3d-print them, but that would be very expensive and I don't have all that much money.

So, that's my tentative plan. I'll probably create a poll for each of the categories via Google or some other software. Luckily, I have a month to figure it all out. :)

This looks like fun, I'd like to nominate One-Way Films in the best Artistic video category for his short film

.

This video could be given a blind eye at first glance but if you give this film a minute or two it's immersive setting really is quite beautiful, and so is the tale it tells.

I would like to nominate the fairly obscure/under appreciated Thor LP for best showcase channel.

He may not be the best at KSP, but his channel is funny, generally ambitious, and does a fair amount of fumbling around with other people's builds.

I more or less wish to nominate him because of his channel as a whole. Maybe if the OP could make an obscure/honorable mention category, Thor LP might fit into that category better.

(Also I'm not particularly sure if he is a member of these forums. I've just never heard mention of his youtube channel and I enjoy his content. I'd like to send a little publicity his way!)

For Best Inactive Channel, I nominate Macey Dean, builder of epic ships, fighter of epic wars.

Recommendation: Change the cutoff for Most Under-Watched video to 5,000 views or fewer.

I nominate Hazard-ish for the funny category.

I think there should also be a category for lets-play-ers who are noobish and funny, and also play other games, if so, I would nominate Hank Plays channel, where in Hank Green of Nerdfighteria plays various games, sometimes Kerbal Space Program.

OO can I nominate myself for up-and-comer? I think I qualify, I have WAY less than 500 subscribers and I just started a week ago, so I'm definitely way new and way small. Here's a link to the channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTQk1ZI9XgdfnqV3GRkbRsw

Channel is called "We Can Game if we Want To". "We" because I also do vids with my wife, mostly minecraft adventure maps with her but I'm going to try to get her to build rockets. Should be some explosive fun!

Danny2462 predictably enough is already in the running for comedy, but I also want to nominate him for Best Overall, Best Artistic and Best Showcase. As for why....well, let's see, he's made practical/invented:

Kerbal Mass Relays

Universe Destruction Machines

Kraken Summoners

I nominate KerbalEssences for the best showcase channel. He has done several educational videos about the Falcon 9 reusable rocket, Vega, SMAP and many many more space missions in his series KNews. very educational, very interesting and very well put together!
