I'm just saying that because someone recently said that it could hurt other peoples feelings. I get that it could, and not winning is ...........
But, that it's just apart of a contest. So, I still think that having a KP Awards is a great idea.

Well I guess it is but this world is full of competitive people so I guess we can't really just get away from that

a kper named rebecca also did a major contest like this a few years back and if you can find it, it's a good model to draw inspiration off of (but not copy.)
idk if anyone saw this but

and also like... Idk if you're aware but some of us aren't neurotypical. For some of us this isn't just like "oh darn! I didn't win! *pouts*" for some of us even small insignificant things like this are a really big deal and we will blow them out of proportion and even the smallest things will make us feel like shit we're not good enough I have to be the best I have to be perfect. "Victory" is a touchy subject for some of us, you know~?
this is also really important.

Those competitive people don't matter
It's not about that but about how SOME of those competitive people have anxiety or depression or OCD or an inferiority complex or just extremely low self esteem or some other psychological disorder. You're probably neurotypical so why would you understand

(this post is really rude but its just because im in a bad mood not bc of this)
