Golden Apple Awards 2006
For the first time, the jury was kept exactly the same as in the previous GAA. Only two changes were made from the previous GAA, and the biggest of these was in the Achievement category: One kuski can now only have one of the nomination spots in this category. This makes it more similar to Contribution, in that several achievements by one kuski is listed under the same nomination. The other change that was done was that the jury now has a deadline of when the Second step of the voting process must be done, in order for the process to take less time.
The show was held on IRCnet #gaa on January 7th 2007, at 20:00 EET. The GAA period was from December 15th 2005 to December 17th 2006. As in GAA05, SveinR presented the three first categories, then the other jury members presented two categories each, before SveinR presented the final one. After one category was presented, the jury would vote, and the jury member presenting the category would name the winner. Neither the jury votes or the community votes were public. The winner would get voiced and make a speech.
The prizes were ultimately meant to be the same as in GAA04, but because of money shortcomings they have not been possible to make and give out. Donations help.
The following is a list of GAA winners for 2006.

14. Achievement, TorInge:
15. Site, skint0r:
People in the community give their favoured suggestions to who should be nominated in the different categories in the proper GAA thread on Mopolauta. To be able to vote in the third step, one must make suggestions in the thread. It is not compulsory to make suggestions in more than one category, but that is of course recommended.
The jury members will choose ten candidates to each category according to their experience and knowledge. They will be also reading the community's suggestions.
Now we have top10 for each category available and again the community can vote. The criteria for being allowed to vote are: well-known player (decided by the jury) and the player has posted some suggestions in the first step (so we see that he has been active during the whole process) or he doesn't have to be well-known if he posted a nice suggestion list with reasonable arguments. These limits are set for getting more appropriate votes. People don't have to vote in every category but if they do vote in some category they must pick their top5 and not just top1 or top3.
The jury will collect the top5 for each category according absolutely to the community votes. The point system will be as follows: 5 points to every first position, 4 points to every second position etc. This will be the top5 to be used in the final show.
The different jury members will vote over the different categories, and the community will also give 2 votes to the candidate who got most points in the third step, and 1 vote to the candidate who got the second-most points. The different jury members' votes will not be public. In the event of a tie, the candidate who got most points from community in the third step will win. If there still is a tie, the one who got most 5 points will win, then 4 points etc. If the winner cannot be resolved by this, the jury will come together and discuss the matter to declare a winner.
