    I'm like 75% into doing my sacred duty at the moment. But I'll get there. Some of these are going to be really hard though because I've never really gone into the political, RP, or hotseat parts of the forum. Worst case scenario: I'll just look at a set sample number of posts for each nominee and decide from there.

    That's a relief, as I only voted in the ones I felt qualified to have an opinion on.

    For the records, I'm planning to close the Polls on the 13th and to check the votes accordingly, so that to be able to present you the results on the 15th

    I moved the Polls to the archives, during today and tomorrow I will do my Hex magic to check the votes, to verify that no one missed to respect the rule of "maximum 2 votes per poll"; once everything will be checked and confirmed I'll post the results and give out the medals accordingly!

    Don't be surprised when HEX members win all categories, even in where none are nominated...

    Don't underestimate the Hex's wizardry! However, we don't need to do much, we have Gig who usually pillages the Awards (I think we should rename the site into Total Gigantus Center).

    However, jokes aside, it's not so easy as it looks to check the votes, because of multi-votes superior to two and because people usually send me PMs to discount their votes after they have voted.. worst part is that, due to technical reasons, it is not possible to manually delete any vote from a poll.. That's the reason why I was always very unsure if to allow the multi-vote system or not.

    Regarding the mult-votes. Are you counting them manually? You can do it very simply using the method I used for the Picture Competitions (and which I assume Athelstan still uses).

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    You will need Notepad++ and the TextFX addon for it.
    Go to the vote thread, and click on one of the vote numbers, eg "8".
    This will show you the results screen. Now highlight from "Submission 1" to the last person's name, copy it and paste it in Notepad++. You will have this:
    Code:
    Submission 1 433.33%
    Admiral Van Tromp,  Araval,  Diocle,  Ngugi
    Submission 2 866.67%
    Abdülmecid I,  Admiral Van Tromp,  Araval,  mad orc,  Ngugi,  Quintus Hortensius Hortalus,  Van Zandt,  xHolyCrusader
    Submission 3 650.00%
    Abdülmecid I,  Commissar Caligula_,  Cookiegod,  mad orc,  Navajo Joe,  Quintus Hortensius Hortalus
    Submission 4 325.00%
    Commissar Caligula_,  Navajo Joe,  xHolyCrusader
    Now delete the submission 1 x%, submission 2 x%, submission 3 x% ect lines.
    Now highlight the ", " that is between each name and click Ctrl F. Click on the Replace tab, and make sure "Search Mode - Extended" is ticked at the bottom. Then replace ", " with \r
    Now highlight everything, click the TextFX tab at the top, then TextFX Tools, and make sure "Sort outputs UNIQUE" is OFF and instead click "Sort lines case insensitive".
    Code:
    Abdülmecid I
    Abdülmecid I
    Admiral Van Tromp
    Admiral Van Tromp
    Araval
    Araval
    Commissar Caligula_
    Commissar Caligula_
    Cookiegod
    Diocle
    mad orc
    mad orc
    Navajo Joe
    Navajo Joe
    Ngugi
    Ngugi
    Quintus Hortensius Hortalus
    Quintus Hortensius Hortalus
    Van Zandt
    xHolyCrusader
    xHolyCrusader
    From this you can clearly see that Cookiegod, Diocle and Van Zandt didn't use both of their votes. So you either ignore their votes, or pm them and ask them what the 2nd option they'd like to vote for is.


    Its pretty easy to do.

    Well, it's unfortunate that this adds a bit of work for you, but I for one like the "two votes" system. For most areas of the TWC one of two things is the case for me. Either 1) I am familiar with the subfora, and know just how deserving all the nominees are, or 2) I have only lightly perused the area and can only somewhat confidently cast a vote. In either case, having two votes is a nice thing, as it allows me to throw some love to those I really respect, as in the case of 1), or it allows me to not have to be as certain about my choice, as in the case of 2). I would keep it that.

    I mean, I'm not the one doing this extra work, so of course I think you should keep it that way...

    yes over all I like the multi-vote systems, because it also generates more possibilities for ties (and thus more deserving people will be awarded); last year we had various ties, judging on what I've checked so far I think we will have even more this year (spoilerrrrrrrrr )
