Only 1 vote!? Couldn't we have 3 like the previous ballot?

It's too hard to decide, like.

What's with this newsletter silliness? I already have your RSS feed. Newsletters belong in 1995.

Just unselect everything if you dont want it :)

slipperyskip - we've looked into it and it seems you are absolutely correct and it was a complete oversight on our part. We're very, very sorry. It was completely unintentional. As you can imagine there are a LOT of mods that pass through bit-tech and CustomPC and we've rounded up more than last year even.

Ingraham was finished in 08 but it was featured in 09 here and CustomPC.

However we're trying to get hold of Jamie - our coder - because he needs to change the voting page from the backend. It's hardcoded to tie into the signup page that we use to make sure there's 1 vote per person. No one in Editorial can access it. So while I could drop another page of your case in, noone can still vote for it :( I think he's biking in Wales or Oxford somewhere so I'm not sure if he's even got access to a PC :( Again we're very sorry and it's nothing personal!

EDIT: OH!! I just realised YOU did Ingraham as well.

Well we only allow ONE entry per person, even if they've been featured twice and it's down to Editorial to decide which we think is.. better. So, you've still a chance to win stash! :P Im sorry if you think your more recent one is better than Ingraham, they are both excellent and MOTY worthy, but we have to make the tough calls sometimes.

Only one vote

There isnt a single nominee that I dont like, and I am struggling to decide between my top two.

Cygnus X1 or Neptunes Trident

hmmmm

Cygnus X1 or Neptunes Trident

Neptunes Trident or Cygnus X1

Cygnus X1 or Neptunes Trident

Neptunes Trident or Cygnus X1

arrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I think I will go with the one I would like to own the most, "Neptunes Trident". Because not only is it well thought out and well put together with some unique features but I like the fact that the monitor, keyboard and mouse all match, and it is a real gaming machine.

Congratulations to all nominees and good luck also. Roll on 2010 and I cant wait to see what you guys have in store.;)

Oh, by the way everyone - reader prizes will be picked when we get back in the office in January so ALL votes count to possibly getting a prize no matter how late you are :):)

Voting ends January 14th! You have THREE WEEKS.

I'm torn between Flow and Phinix. Flow looks BITCHING as a desktop background.

I can't take my eyes of Cygnus X. Just love it! But it was hard to choose, all the other mods were also great, loved the small details.

All incredible pieces of work, show skill i can only dream of posessing when it comes to PC Modding....really seperates the men from the boys.

Cygnus stands out...........its a work of art that should be in Tate Modern.

thats alot of mods. how on earth do you expect me to pick one?
cool_dude 24th December 2009, 12:40 Quote
awesome. went for snipe dogs... love it - but was hard to pick that between snipes and the neptune trident.

good luck all...

about the prizes... do we get an email if we win? (heres hoping, never won a comp but hopefully I may this time lol!

Again, struggling to see why Overclocked Orange was included...

Great design, brilliantly thought out and executed, fantastic machine, absence of modding/fabricating by the owner.
MaverickWill 24th December 2009, 12:51 Quote
MOTM for May 09, Raders Drives in CPC June 09... And it was modded. Just not by him, really. I think he braided the cables and spray-painted the mobo heatsinks.

Just unselect all the options and you wont get sent any. It was the same last year and we had several thousand entries still :)

We need a signup to stop people spamming the competition which we've suffered before :(

Love the Cygnus X1. Some tough compition out there. Some surprising cases up for the vote though. If you read some of the worklogs it's nearly all bought parts and stuff(painting/lasercutting) done for them. Shame really. Makes the otherslike the Cygnus even better though.
Happy Christmas and happy holidays!
:0)

Oh man, it was a toss up between Cygnus X1, Neptune's Trident and Flow.

Gotta say though, I think Cygnus X1 had the most hard work put into it.

Good luck to all nominees.

My bet for the winner is either Neptunes Trident or Cygnus X1, but vote goes to The highest bidder ;)

That doesn't work. Unchecking all newsletter options results in an "error, you must select at least one newsletter type":|:(

There is really no hesitation for me to pick, but i thought it would be a pick 3 so I was trying to decide the other 2.
spunky_me 24th December 2009, 16:19 Quote
I wish I had more than 1 vote... it is kinda hard to pick one out of all these tremendous MODs!

Hmmm.. that's new. I will bring this up with people at Dennis but unfortunately it's closed until 4th Jan. You've still got until 14th to vote so you can come back in Jan!

EDIT: Unfortunately it's a Dennis-wide policy to accept at least one newsletter :( but to get around it you receive the first email and just select unsubscribe and it's all done.
