@Darth_Pretzel Much appreciated. :) (Even moreso for being indiscriminately oblivious to my inability to use Google.) /blush

About the Awards
GameSpot's Best of 2010 awards cover special achievements in the field of advancements for games, dubious honors for less-than-admirable qualities, and full awards for individual genres and every major platform. Nominations and awards are the result of rigorous debate among GameSpot's editors, who select up to five finalists and one winner for almost every category (the Game of the Year category includes up to 10 finalists). To qualify for an editorial award, games must have been reviewed by GameSpot between January 1, 2010, and November 30, 2010.
Award categories are intended to call out those games that truly deserve the attention--therefore, while each award is meaningful, it's considered an honor simply to be nominated.
Best Implementation of User Generated Content
Many games are a great value, but those with the longest life spans are often those that let you exercise your own creativity and add to the experience by building your own game characters, levels, and play modes. Our nominees for this category acknowledge those games that best let you turn your imagination into great game content.

This real-time strategy sequel offers powerful editing tools that go beyond making maps. We're talking about full-on gameplay modifications that have reproduced Tetris, first-person shooters, and a kart -racing game, among others. Expect to see great Starcraft II user-created content for years to come.
Readers' Choice Voting
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is the sequel to Blizzard Entertainment's 1998 hit StarCraft, which has been hailed by players and critics worldwide as one of the top real-time strategy games of all time. Sporting a vibrant 3D-graphics engine, StarCraft II will once again center on the clash between the protoss, terrans, and zerg, with each side deploying legions of veteran, upgraded, and new unit types. Unparalleled online play for StarCraft II will be available through a new version of Battle.net, Blizzard Entertainment's world-renowned gaming service. Battle.net has been redesigned from the ground up to be the premier online gaming destination for Blizzard gamers, with several enhancements and new features, such as voice communication, cloud file storage, leagues and ladders, achievements, stat-tracking, and more.
@ecoolen http://www.sc2mapster.com/ This is a great site that is constantly collecting great maps, almost daily. There's videos, even tutorials!
Does anyone here know of a good site with videos and stuff, that collects and showcases the 'best of' of these SC mods?
I have personally never experienced User Generated Content so seemlessly intergrated into a game, big up to Blizzard
Haven't tried the editor or user-made content in "SC II: WoL" yet. How slack of me. I hear the "DoTA" map is cool. Off to the website I go...
