Poster of the Year?
For the last couple of years we have had Poster of the Year threads/contests. I'm not sure if this is meant to be that kind of thing?
I think Nemesis Juggernaut is by far the best hardcore creationist debater I have seen at EvC. Faith is extremely well written, but NJ seems to give a debate more effort.
I can't really comment on the rest, as I can't sort the categories/contestants out in my mind. Outside of hardcore creo, people tend to get tangled up depending on what the subject is.
Oh wait, I will say that I found Ben to be on of the most pragmatic disbelievers. He debates from what I would describe as that position extremely well.
I don't think I have seen a hardcore atheist here at all... or at least any that would stand out as best debater in that category.

The categories in the OP come from religious/philosophical leanings. I learn a lot here from our science specialists
This is one of the reasons I had a hard time naming anyone. I wasn't as sure about people's rel/phil position as I am with people being good with logic or evidence.
As far as science goes, to my mind the top contributors have been roxrkool (who no longer seems active), perhaps melatonin (who no longer seems active), and certainly cavediver.
The top contributors for logic, I feel would be RAZD and you. I like plenty of others (including many who have left EvC) but for eloquence or detail in theory you guys max out in that category right now.
Of course these things always change over time, with some people burning out and some people getting better, then changing again. No one can hold the edge forever.
I have not seen enough of straggler, but from what I have seen the pseudonym doesn't seem to fit. I have liked all of straggler's posts so far.
I do feel bad that so many enjoyable, and frequent, writers don't get mentioned when these things come out. I always feel like I'm shafting people in the back when I don't mention everyone, and oh man if I forget someone if I attempt a full list. Jazzns, Chiro, Tusko, and mark24 are just 4 examples of people that I think I don't give enough explicit kudos to, and they really deserve. Now I'll go hate myself for not mentioning still more.

Re: Gunning for Glory
The posts I saw here by Ringo had a lot to do with my returning to EvC after my first visit.
See, that's what I'm talking about. Ringo completely skipped my mind when considering who I might overlook, and he certainly deserves credit.
Mark24 is the specific person who brought me back to EvC long long ago. Lots of people do now, even when I can't seem to remember all their names.
