The 3rd Annual Earth-2.net Mainpage Awards

So we're doing best episode of Bigger on the Inside now? I thought the initial belief is that the show was too young.

Yeah, I figured it would be too weird to ask for best moments of the show but not a best episode.

Ballot sent. Some categories were definitely easier than others this year. I must have changed my Best Contributor list a dozen times.

No kidding. I didn't think the four-way-tie for first place would fly.

Best contributor is such a tough decision that I think I might do a 2006 Time magazine style co-out and vote for You, meaning the consumers of Earth-2 media, meaning me. I humbly accept my nomination, its an honor just to be seriously considered.

Kidding aside, I'm 80% done on this but the remaining categories are going to require some research.

Two weeks left to vote. Come on, folks. It doesn't take that much time and you don't have to vote for every category anyway.

Last day to vote is Friday, everyone. I have to say I'm rather disappointed in the amount of ballots I've gotten, so please send in one, ladies and gents. It does not have to be complete. Just vote for what you want.

Wait... I didn't miss this?

I'll send in my votes tonight. I actually went through and made some picks on the first day, but I wanted to listen to a few more podcasts first before I made my final decisions. Then I forgot about it.

Maybe it's worth making another front page headline saying that the ballots close this Friday. That might get at least a few more people to contribute. Might as well utilize Facebook and Myspace too.

I'm sending mine in a moment, but a quick suggestion- You can cut a lot of these categories. I know its not mandatory to vote for any of them but I'm not sure of the point of voting for best episode of a show like FYEO or BOTI, or even WFP. Earth-2 is diverse enough to merit it, but with the set subject matter and regular hosts of the other shows I'm not sure of the point of having categories with only one set of potential winners.

For the sake of expediency I've dropped the comic review category (too many to judge) and all the best moments. For individual podcasts I'm not sure of the point and for overall best moments my memory is just too sketchy to really pick out any one thing.

Yes all voting is optional but the current category listings are intimidating. Even a Earth-2 stalwart like me who listens to most of the podcasts regularly and reads the mainpage articles can feel a bit overwhelmed, and as a result its taken this long to submit my response. Why not limit the number of awards to a manageable amount, say 10-12 categories total. You'll get a much better response and the awards will mean more. Suggested list-

Best Podcast

Best Individual Episode

Best New Podcast/Audio Feature

Best Comic Review

Best Video Game Review

Best TV/Movie Review

Best Column

Best New Written Feature

Best Moment

Overall Contributor

Yeah, I can agree with that. The podcasts really are the thing that has held me back from voting, just because I wanted to give as many votes as possible. I'll be lucky if I fill out half of it.

Seriously guys, just put "D.W." for everything. Only takes a few seconds, tops.

That's the definition of a spoilt ballot! :P

I eagerly await my "Best Listener" award!

It's true - as far as I know, only Stavros and my brother have listened to all 10 episodes! And as my podcast counts double due to the UK/American exchange rate, that technically counts for something.

I've listened to every episode of every podcast since about 2006. In respects to FYEO, I just don't have much to contribute considering my apathy for the source material.

Due to my hideous schedule, I haven't been able to tabulate the votes yet. I'm sorry about this, but working two jobs and going to school takes up most of my time. Rest assured it will get done ASAP.
