Well, I’d hoped that we wouldn’t have to do the in-season awards for another month or so, but unfortunately the season is now over. I also considered waiting on this, just to give everyone time to get over the emotions of the season, but I figured doing this now might help everyone move on.
Here’s how the nominations are going to work. We’re going to use MGoPoints and comments. It’s the best way I could think of. Please submit nominations in a comment below. Users will vote for the nominations by upvoting the comment, or if they can’t vote then reply to the comment and agree with it. Please do not downvote any nominations, as that will skew the results.
I will leave this open for a few days, until the activity has obviously died down, then I will count the votes/positive responses to come up with 2-4 finalists for each category. Then the nominees will be listed so that everyone can vote on them.
As these are just nominations, feel free to vote for more than 1.
For nominations in categories that are post related, please link to the post being nominated.
Here are the categories:
Best Diary (Analysis)
Best Diary (Humorous)
Best Diary/Post (recurring)
