Welcome to my awesome thread of fabulousness. Yes, fabulousness is a word, if you don't believe me look it up
. Now onto this thread, let's start with an intro, classic and unoriginal, but hey what'ya gonna do about it?
I'm sure whenever we joined the community we started to look up to someone at some point, even if we don't anymore, this is a place where we print history in a piece of paper and honour it, overall because many of the forum users some of us looked up to are probably gone, or whatever (*cough* *cough* Chad *cough* *cough*). Every year I'll take the user with the most followers and categorize it as the "Followed of the Year". Note that the followed of the year cannot be the same from the past year, so that means that if by miracle the same person reaches the top of the followed people again, the one that follows him/her will make it to the "Followed of the Year" list.
So yeah, that's the gist of it, post which users you used to look up to and/or decided to follow his steps and become a better person like him/her. The only purpose of this thread though is, like I said, to honour the people that we look up to. This is a place for them to know that we like and respect them at the point of wanting to show them they've earned their place in this awesome thread of mine.
Now that I'm done with overusing my ego, time to put some rules here. See the list below? It doesn't have any users right? That's the Followed of the Year list and for the moment it shall remain empty until the 22nd of December, 2016. Every time someone manages to enter this list the year of his entrance will also be marked in.
List of the Followed of the Year
Now see this other list below? It has a few users right? The list will be updated with every post of yours saying who you used to, or right now do, look up to, but you may only enlist three of them. Every time someone says he/she looks up to somebody, the date of him/her stating it will be added to the list as well. Every year once someone reaches the Followed of the Year list that list'll be empty for new people to be set there. Keep in mind there's no need to explain why you look up to somebody, you may address it if you like, but won't be added here so there's no point on doing so.

Now that we're done with explaining how it works, let the game of popularity begin. PS: No controversy intended.
