Thread of the Year, also known as Threadies, is an annual Facepunch event, originally held by Mr. Tripp (later known as Tobin) from 2012 to 2015 in Fast Threads, by Bradyns in 2016 and icemaz in 2017 in General Discussion, that occurs near the end of each year.

There have been effectively 6 entries since 2012; though the fifth entry petered out before much could be achieved.

Thread of the Year 2012

The Thread of the Year 2012 contest started after Mr. Tripp posted a thread in Fast Threads on the 13th of November, 2012, listing nominees and asking for nominations.[1]

The nominees were:

Later, Your worst night out and HO! were removed from the list.

On the 19th of November, 2012, a new thread was made, dedicated to voting on the threads.[11] Due to popular demand, a new thread was added to the list: A confession about the love of my life

Finally, on the 1st of January, 2013, a final thread was made, announcing the winners of Thread of the Year 2012:[12]

Porn Site Comments came third with 8 votes; Gmod Jokes! came second with 9 votes; and, the winner, with 44 votes was ultimately...

Boy laid to rest in Sonic the Hedgehog coffin, after Mein Bratwurst's amazing post that completely derailed the entire thread, the entirety of Sensationalist Headlines and the entirety of the forum itself for months afterwards.

A copy of Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge was offered to Mein Bratwurst, but he declined it. It was instead given to the creator of the thread, Sonicdude.

Thread of the Year 2013

The Thread of the Year 2013 contest began on the 29th of November, 2013 with the opening of that year's Nominations thread.[13]

The nominees were:

Later, Needing a Recording Partner, So I'm sitting out in the cold, i cant stop farting and How I Became Lord TCB were removed from the list.

On the 15th of December, 2013, the voting thread was made, and a total of 172 users voted on their favorite thread of the year.[24]

Finally, on the 1st of January, 2014, the winners of Thread of the Year 2013 were announced:[25]

In third place, with 21 votes, was How do I get rid of my freakish nipples? They are causing me great stress!; in second place, with 27 votes, was Ask my pet rock anything!; and, finally, in first place, with 71 votes, was I'm stuck in a closet. by StarmanSuper!

All winners received a title linking to their winning thread, and StarmanSuper won a copy of Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge for coming first.

Thread of the Year 2014

The Thread of the Year 2014 contest began on the 29th of November, 2014, adopting the Threadies name for the first name in its thread title.[26]

The nominees were:

Later, Are video games sexist?, "Revenge porn" to become criminal offense in the UK, Bieber Faces Deportation If Charged, Guy from misc shoots up the place I order sandwiches from, Tumblr community tries to hold a convention, ALFRED and I am trying to find a girl to kick me in the nuts were removed from the list for varying reasons.

On the 10th of December, 2014, the voting thread was made.[36] Finally, on the 1st of January, 2015, the winners of Threadies 2014 were announced;[37] before revealing the winners, with 50 votes, The Special Award for Excellence in the field of Excellence was given to A music video I recently made. Please leave some constructive criticism by TheRealDJDong.

In third place, with 52 votes, was WHO ARE LAUGH NOW MAXOFS2D??; in second place, with 58 votes, was postal and the rust forum ~chapter 1 and 2~; and, finally, in first place, with 102 votes, was How did your Username? by tropsical!

For winning second place, Natrox received a copy of Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge. Tobin attempted to add tropsical on Steam, but unfortunately, by this point in time, he had already disappeared from the forum.

Thread of the Year 2015

The Thread of the Year 2015 contest began on the 17th of December, 2015, a month later than normal.[38]

The nominees were:

On the 28th of December, 2015, the voting thread was made, and a total of 225 users voted on their favorite thread of the year.[46]

Finally, on the 7th of January, 2016, the winners of Threadies 2015 were announced:[47]

In third place, with 24 votes, was The conflict in Yemen: everyday stories from a Yemeni Facepuncher; in second place, with 51 votes, was Death to facepunch and halo online eldorito; and, finally, in first place, with 87 votes, was Ban me - a thread by a fucking WIMP by Crpto2007!

Crpto2007 would've won a copy of Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge, but Tobin was unable to find their Steam account; Monkeyownsnd would've received the prize due to Crpto's disqualification, but Tobin was unable to find their Steam account either; and since Maestro Fenix's thread was mainly about .Greninja, he was the one to win the copy!

Thread of the Year 2016

The Thread of the Year 2016 contest began on the 24th of November, 2016, shedding the Threadies title and instead being one of three categories (alongside Post of the Year and Most Valuable Poster of the Year).[48] As Tobin had been banned earlier in the month due to their toxx, Bradyns stepped in and acted as the host for that year.

Unfortunately, the nomination period ended up petering out, lasting well into the beginning into 2017, and no vote was done.

Concentrating squarely on the Thread of the Year category, only two threads were nominated; the Toxx Trackr thread[49] and Need help with a few models. The nominees for the Post of the Year category were wickedplayer494's victim blaming and Starpluck's toxx bargaining,[50] while the nominees for MVP of the Year were wickedplayer494, Starpluck, Smurfy and Levelog.

Post of the Year 2017

The Post of the Year 2017 awards began on the 24th of December, 2017, firmly establishing the move from threads to individual posts, reflecting in the new title of the contest.[51]

The nominations were sent privately to this year's host, icemaz, and the nomination period lasted until the 27th, with voting beginning on the same day.[52] Voting closed on 29th of December, 2017, with the winners being announced that same day:[53]

  • The winner of the Best Post of 2017 award was thePFA's fulfillment of GORYGIRL1996's Father Grigori request, with Samson0722's "Hillary"[54] being the runner-up.
  • The winner of the Worst Post of 2017 award was agentfazexx's post on insurance companies, with Reagy's inappropriate apology[55] being the runner-up.
  • The winner of the Best Post of All Time award was Mein Bratwurst's Sonic Drowning post, which lead the thread it was in to win the Thread of the Year 2012, with joecool's Drunk Oblivion thread being the runner-up.
  • The winner of the Worst Post of All Time award was wickedplayer494's victim blaming post, previously nominated for Post of The Year 2016, with Aspen's confession of love being the runner-up, previously nominated for Thread of the Year 2012.
  • The winner of the Greatest Achievement of All Time award was Xabin's model thread, previously nominated for Thread of the Year 2016, with Snowmew's nuclear post being the runner-up, having been disqualified from the Thread of the Year 2014 due to being a post.

Unlike previous years, the winners received nothing, though one could argue that nothing was better than a copy of Bad Rats.
