    GOOD POST.


    This is important:

    DO NOT FEEL PRESSURED INTO VOTING FOR FRIENDS ON THE BOARD. ONCE THE NOMINATIONS ARE IN, VOTE FOR WHO YOU THINK BEST FITS THE AWARD.

    It's not just about popularity, it's about nominating those you think REALLY deserve the award.

    The stupid thing is that if you don't nominate someone for an award then how the heck are folks meant to vote for them?

    And um, awards are pretty much a popularity contest.

    I meant to post this when you asked for new categories, and forgot...

    I think you should drop the rule that you can't leave any blank, and here's why:

    I don't know a lot... I don't know who the best draft people are, I don't necessarily know who has the MOST Bronco knowledge, etc...

    So I don't nominate anyone at all... and when there's the same rule for voting, I don't vote at all, cuz I DON'T know, and would rather not throw it off...

    I understand you're trying to cut down on people just voting for their 'friends' or something, but maybe you could make it you have to nominate in a certain percentage? I'd be more likely to participate that way... But that's just me.

    Yup, this is how it goes.

    We keep all the nominations and voting information confidential so we aren't going to tell anyone if you didn't vote or nominate them. So feel free to tell them you nominated them even if you didn't.

    I wish to be nominated for a category.

    Nominate me and I promise to allow your arms to remain in their sockets for a couple days longer.

    EDIT: I don't think you should HAVE to nominate two for each category.

    How about a magic trick?

    hmmm. . . .

    every time these hapen, we have to listen to complaints about how it's a popularity contest. . . sounds like sour grapes to me-- if it bothers you, why bother to read the thread? i wouldn't, but i guess that makes too much sense. . .


    still, there is some basis for it. . . i like jwinn and emancipator as much as anyone, but there ARE plenty of other good posters who contribute here as well, even if they don't post as frequently. . . so with absolutely no disrespect intended to jdub or big E, i'm going to challenge people to think about it a little harder this year, and try to recognize some of our other quality members for a change. . . . most of the usual suspects do win these things time after time for a reason, but there are mysterious posters besides TDK, random posters besides anton, and bigtime broncos fans besides topscribe. . . . and they deserve some recongnition too! let's try to make it a bit more interesting this year, shall we? just a suggestion. . . .


    oh, and please don't nominate me for anything, thanks!

    I personally found the WhoDey thing hillarious. Its hard to nominate the best broncos fan with all the good fans here, and so someone came up with the idea of a good joke.

    And it only makes sense that this is partially a popularity contest. Broncos2356547Bailey might be the best draft guru the boards have ever seen, but if he only had one post, he won't be nominated. Point is, if people don't know you, how are they going to know what to nominate you for?

    And of course there are repeat winners. They were nominated the other years since they fit, and if nobody changes or if we don't get any new contenders then it will be the same.

    Hell, even a lot of popular people have never won an award. Most of the mods, some of the ladies, lots of rival fans....
