Best non-review article at TWG 2006
« on: February 27, 2007, 05:50:26 PM »
Name: Best article 2006
Image: TBA
Type: Unique
Level: 2+
Award Method: Achievement
Cost: N/A
Active: Yes
Active Date: February 27 - March 27th 2007
Description: Voted Best non-review article at TWG for 2006


Every year we got a lot of great content created by our forum and friends and so we want to start showing our thanks by offering a unique award, meaning there's only one of them, for the best in show here at TWG.  First off we're doing best non-review article, which can be anything that's not a review (simple eh?), meaning no score given on the page, how this contest works is described below:

1)During the week of February 27st-March 15th  PM Spriggan with your favorite non-review articles (max 3 please) nominations, these articles must have a publish year of 2006 also don't nominate yourself or we'll toss your submissions, also don't bother trying to create a new account to nominate yourself, we have that level restriction for a reason and can easily determine who's cheating.

3) Spriggan will then take the top 5 articles and create a poll allowing everyone to vote on their favorites (again you'll need to be level 2 to vote so don't bother trying to cheat) between March 15th-27  .

4) On March 27 the winner will be awarded their prize.
Good Luck!

I created a script to only show the non-reviews frm 2006 so any from this list is valid.

Ooooh, I like this idea. It's hard to choose, though! A Geek Girl classic? Skar's RIP David Gemmel? Or SE's Thank Heaven for Little Girls?

How do I choose?

Since you can submit three, and you just mentioned three, i'm not sure what the problem is.

Heh, ya that would help.  I let people nominate up to three because there are so many good articles it's hard to choose just one and that there will then be a good chance that something they like will make it to the final five.

Also on the 15th when nominating for this category is over I'll start nonmiations for best review.

Only 3 days left for nominations people.

If everyone who told me that this is a good idea actually participated then I'd actually have enough nominations but I've only got a total of 4 from two people.  It's not hard to PM me with what you like, I'm surprised buy once again the total indifference people that visit this site have for this site, I guess I should know by know that most people don't care about anything other them PMing friends or EUOL.

Thanks Stacer.

Just a quick rule update, for the final vote I'm limiting a writer to 2 articles only so more people have a chance to be in (right now if I did the final vote list there would only be two people on it).  This doesn't affect nominations though, you can spend all your nominations on one person if you want.

I figure this is the fairest way to do it.

That's a good plan. I couldn't decide, so I think I skewed it (and I'm kind of under a deadline + moving thing this week), so I still didn't spend the time I wanted to on it, but I did the best I could.

Submitted. I suppose I've been a bit of a dapper around here. I understand that a lot of the more normal folks have kind of lessened there time around here and... ok, this is going into a rant. I'll be quiet.

You were the most nominated person but they were all for different articles so I had to decide on which one went up for the final vote, which was done by looking at the total view count among other things.
