There were many ties for second and third place this year, so a lot of people received awards not listed above. The full list of winners, including second and third places, can be viewed at Muskies Winners for 2013. The Muskies Awards section has been updated with a new page that describes the award categories, as well as separate pages for list the winners of each year.

I will be sending PMs to all award winners to present them with special banners created in recognition of their achievements tomorrow. I would usually do this today, but I'm pretty tired after compiling these results and making the banners after the last 36 hours without sleep. Please wear them ploudly! :laugh_lucca:

Congratulations to all winners! :D If you did not win, you have my condolences. Don't fret, though. There's always next year's Muskies! Remember that several categories considered all previous activity because they were newly added this year; that won't be the case when those categories return next year.

Awesome! I've been checking Fringes all day in excitement, ha ha. Congratulations to everybody, and thank you so much for the Muskies. I think it's quite cool that Lucas and I tied in the Best Fan Artwork category, and with our favorite characters, no less, so hats off to you, Lucas, and much respect for all your work as an artist. Hats off to everyone, in fact.

And thank you again, Thoul, for this great website, and these most excellent awards.

Thanks, everyone. :)

Award banners have now been sent to all the winners by private message. My apologies to everyone for taking so long to get that done. If anyone didn't receive their banners, please let me know so I can double check it or resend.

Got mine! But I have a question...are the image file sizes larger than before? I could only get three into my signature (I want to keep my last.fm banner), and anymore triggered the 'total filesize of images used is too large' error. I was able to get most of my 2012 muskies in my signature with the last.fm banner.

Yes, these images were larger. Apparently I forgot to run them through one of the algorithms to reduce the file sizes. I've done that now and reuploaded them, so they are around the same size as last year's now.
