GTANet Annual Awards 2007 - Voting Now Open!

Vote here. You can't vote for yourself or your own gang.

As I mentioned in the nominations thread, we're trying to encourage intelligent voting in order to get a better, more accurate representation of our members and the recognition they deserve; rather than the "vote for the name you know" attitude that often seems to be the case. Basically, as much as it might seem impossible, we're trying to eliminate the popularity contest aspect of the awards. So please exercise some restraint in voting if you aren't particularly familiar with one or more of the categories available.

Apologies for the delay in getting from the close of nominations to the open of voting. In light of said delay, I'm not putting an exact deadline on voting - nor an exact date for when results will be released - but I expect the booth will be closed within about two weeks again. While there's certainly no rush, I suggest you don't hold off voting for too long, lest you miss out.

Please keep bitching to a minimum. If you have a constructive complaint about how the awards have been run this year, however, I'm all ears.

Big shout to the rest of the staff for helping this get off its arse and on its way to where it is now. In particular, fred and illy have done some great work up to the last minute ensuring all the code and stuff that goes on behind the scenes is working as it should, in addition to working out the intricacies of the skin again.

And without further ado, enjoy! May the best member win!

As I brought up elsewhere, a little more transparency in how nominations are tallied would have been cool. Not only in how many nominations you need to receive, but how, exactly, nominations are tossed out and for what criteria. It's more fun that way. Also, the whole "vote what you know" thing is a little bit of leap of faith; I'm looking forward to seeing how it all pans out.

Most importantly - make sure it remains annual! And thanks.

I'd hate to give some desperate nominees an idea on how to win/cheat but can't members just create a new account and then vote for themselves(?), it wouldn't be that hard at all. I think you should make it that members who have joined within the past month or two cannot vote and if they do their votes will not be tallied. I doubt any members that new would have that much of an idea anyway.

Forgot to mention - that's already in place (but not exactly a two months limit I believe).

I'm sad I didn't get any sort of returning member vote. There are a bunch of us who came back recently, you know! sad.gif

With that said, I hope illspirit and Xcommunicated sweep the entire thing.

Just a quick question, why isn't XN22 (Laz) in the "Best Returning Member" poll? He got nominated countless times yet he isn't there.

How so? We're not on there. I don't believe Dalp and PDescobar have been banned at any point either.

I'd have liked to have seen pinky on the Best Vehicle too. Would've been my vote. Also ffs, I've worked on Myriad and Gostown so I can't vote for either sad.gif .

He hasn't released any vehicles (that we could find) since Sept '06, so was removed from the listings.

What an exciting year it has been. Deepthroat, the Steak topic...


I look forward to seeing who will win in each of the categories. I will have a hard time voting for a single person in many categories. Good luck to each of the nominees.

Thanks to to all the staff who were involved in this. I had no idea voting would take place in a custom coded section of the site.

Nope. They'll be banned for taking the credit away from the other nominees. sarcasm.gif

He's released about 4-5 vehicles publicly in the Gostown topic his year at least.
