Of course, all of these awards are prestigious. The guys who gave them to me told me so themselves.
In chronological order...
The complaint-letter generator was rated among the top 5% of all sites on the Internet by Point Communications. (Look under Survey / Arts & Entertainment / Humor.) Thanks to everyone who voted for it!
The complaint-letter generator is featured on the Tangled Web's "Hot Links" page as a site worthy of notice for its humorous nature. So in case you didn't notice that it was humorous (and, believe me, some people don't)...
Look! The complaint-letter generator received one those little "I was reviewed by Net Surf" icons that everyone seems to like so much. Since that's HotWired's way of saying "You rule!", I guess I must.
Yes, even earwigs occasionally need to complain. (You know -- "Those darn humans keep squishing my buddies," and bug stuff like that.) However, in this case, the Earwig in question is the top online music source for modern/alternative rock news, interviews, games, polls, record reviews and more. Darned if I knew why that would need to complain.
Monitor Magazine named the complaint-letter generator their Site of the Day (23 April 1997). At least, I think that's what the page says. It's in Hebrew, and I know only enough Hebrew to translate the title as "[some word I don't know] of the day." So let's all pretend it's "Site of the Day;" it'll make me feel good.
The complaint-letter generator is not only one of this week's top five humor sites, but it was one of the top five humor sites the first week the Top Five list existed. Think of all the bonus points that's worth!
Wow! Witness that the complaint-letter generator won the Weird Wild Web award, which, while wonderful, will wear out whatever's left of my "W" key. What a waste! Wouldn't we want the World Wide Web awards we win to watch what keys they weaken? Well, I would, anyway.
According to SP (no relation to me, even though everyone in my family bears the initials "SP"), this award, unlike many others on the web, is not that easy to win. I had to...ummm...check my e-mail to to win it. That notwithstanding, the automatic complaint-letter generator is one of the best humor-related whatsits on the Web today.
The lockergnome hid a copy of the automatic complaint-letter generator in its GnomeFun folder. Look for it in the 30 April 1998 issue.
The Password felt the automatic complaint-letter generator is so good, they linked to it from their Internet Time Wasters magazine (look under "Love or hate letters"). Of course, no one would waste too much time playing with the complaint-letter generator, would they?
Humor at the Mining Co. has declared the automatic complaint-letter generator one of the best new links of the week and has enshrined a link to it in its Email Laughs and Greeting Cards - Humor - Net Links section for time immemorial. Technically, this link does not count as an "award", since they didn't give me a cool icon to put on this page, but since I was able to steal some graphic I found on their site, we'll let this one go, okay?
If you were subscribed to Link of the Day on 30 July 1998, you would have received mail telling you about the automatic complaint-letter generator. If not, you missed it -- go hang your head in shame.
Tanzio considers the automatic complaint-letter generator an "exxxxxcellent" site and a "Tanzio Favorite Pick". Of course, I'm not going to argue with someone who makes such a flashy award graphic available on her page.
Because the automatic complaint-letter generator is clearly one of the most "weird, bizarre, strange, odd and unusual web sites on the Internet," RandysWeb had no choice but to award it a RandysWeb Official Weird Site Award. And to think how many people see absolutely nothing unusual about those complaint letters...
On 3 December 1998, The Mouthpiece, which reviews and reports on some of the funniest sites on the Internet, reviewed and reported on the automatic complaint-letter generator. On 26 January 1999 -- several Internet years later -- they sent out a reminder. This implies either that they really like my program or that their subscribers lack any sort of long-term memory.
Linky & Dinky love me! At least, they love the automatic complaint-letter generator. At least, either Linky or Dinky loves the automatic complaint-letter generator. At least, I assume that either Linky or Dinky must love the automatic complaint-letter generator, as they e-mailed its URL to their subscribers...or so they claim.
The Co-Rulers of the World have established the automatic complaint-letter generator as a Holy Website. So if you're a member of THE TRUE RELIGION, you might want to consider bowing down before my sacred site.
Seeking a joke? How about an automatic complaint-letter generator? If you look under Home / Jokes / Insults, you can find my program. And if you want to share your opinions about the automatic complaint-letter generator with the world, you can even rate this site there.
The automatic complaint-letter generator has succeeded in utter metagrobolization -- whatever that means. Well, at least my little adumbration has managed to becloud Sonomo Co.'s panel of judges enough to be granted their Award for Obfuscation.
While Lep's Kawaii Award is most definitely not the most prized of Web-site awards, the automatic complaint-letter generator is at least cool enough to receive the little badge-type picture you see here.
Hey, I can't find the automatic complaint-letter generator....I must have put it down someplace....It's gotta be around here somewhere....Oh, there it is; it's right Here on the Web.
Irieman & friends' Cool Link of the Week goes only to those Web sites that are "entertaining, informative, or just interesting". (What? You didn't know the automatic complaint-letter generator is "informative"?) In addition, by putting Irieman & friends' medallion on my site, I am indicating to the world my overall coolness. I'm so cool!
On his radio program, Jim Jacka named the automatic
complaint-letter generator his Website of the Week for
the week of 17 April 2006 (WHTT 104.1 FM, Buffalo, New York). Some of
the sites Jim Jacka promotes
are practical and useful while others are better suited for pure
enjoyment. Clearly, the automatic complaint-letter generator
matches both criteria.
Because the automatic complaint-letter generator is
interesting, or groundbreaking in its use of the Web (maybe all of
the above, eh?), it was named Site of the Day by the Sympatico MSN
High Speed Zone (16 June 2006).
The automatic complaint-letter generator won Davis Freeberg's Site Of The Week
#13 (17 May 2007) because Davis Freeberg
found the complaint generator to be very entertaining, even if I
could not understand half of what it randomly writes.
