    Quick query. Are there any rules/guidelines on posting in the voting threads themselves?

    Basically, do you want people to post when they've voted (though obviously not for whom) which has the side effect of promoting those posts as they have new activity, or would you rather people didn't post in the threads? Thanks.

    All the Best,

    Welsh Dragon.

    That's up to the voters actually. They are perfectly entitled to post messages like "voted", "duty done", "job done", etc...

    To be honest, there's no need at all to post in the poll threads.. fact is, you cannot have the thread closed AND the poll open, so to allow people to vote in the poll, the thread has to remain open... that said, in the past happened that people posted things like "hey I voted for X because he is bla bla", which is against the rules of the Awards, so in general no posting is better to avoid issues (for comments, there's this thread), or, as Lifth said, one can state that they participated in that poll by a simple "voted" or such

    I think it's a bit weird that the avatar's aren't showed in the avatar vote thread.

    As I said to Cookiegod, none of the nominees have changed their avatar during 2019 IIRC or in any case the avatar that they are showing today is what people has nominated, so I'm confident that people would know what they are voting for.

    I know it was used in the past to link the avatar pics (I did that myself many times), and this could still be needed in case of doubts, but that's not the case this time.

    And another point: should we be linking the best posts of each of those who are nominated in the Best Debater? or maybe link the art workshops of those nominated for the best artist? etc etc.. The point is, people is expected to nominate and vote in the categories they are familiar with, and if they aren't, they are supposed to be doing some research and digging ... going to community-->member list and putting in the name of the member would do

    This is a moot argument Flinn. It's literally comparing an apple with a banana. You can only chose from one avatar per nominated user to come to a conclusion of what you think is the best avatar across the nominated ones. For nominations in the debater, arts, writing, etc categories you can make up your mind with 3, 30 or 300 posts made in 2019. Not really a comparison is it?

    If I change my avatar, will they then be included?

    yes second point wasn't directly related to the Avatar question, it was a more general statement

    however, I think I'm the only one who's changing avatar like every month or two months maximum, so ..

    edit: avatars added, so that we can all have sweet dreams

    Could I change my avatar to this


    or would it be seen as the obvious attempt at soliciting votes that it is?

    EDIT: In case Flinn doesn't recognise his own daughter.

    Glad you bowed to peer pressure and added the avatars to the poll threads, looks much better now.

    That being said I feel like mine should be above Grahams.

    Few days still to go! Unless RL strikes again, I'm planning to close the polls on February the 6th, so I invite those who haven't voted yet to hurry up before I'll close them!
