This seems a bit vague. Does this potentially mean that the project with the highest number of votes may still not be the winner?
Also. who are the members of the panel?
By 'influenced', what exactly do you mean?
What criteria will they use to determine the top mod?

Some of these are the rorted projects, pushing out legitimate projects. So if you only consider the top five..................you see what I'm saying.
I never realised it was this bad. I didn't think modders would try to rig a comp with their peers.
Sheesh, I didn't even ask my mum and dad to vote. Silly naive me. :)

I myself had asked my friends to vote because isn't that the purpose of it?

I did the same thing though, linked it on my facebook. I think only a few (3? 4?) of my friends voted, but I never told them to vote just for me, and specifically directed them to vote for 5 that they think deserved it. To me, it was more about bringing awareness to the community of people that we have here that put a lot of their time, effort, and heart into something that goes unnoticed by so many.
P.S. p0Pe...she's a keeper :).
Exactly, whoever wins will deserve it, but ONLY because there will be a jury. That way you cant just spam your way to the top, and making this a popularity contest.
there is a big difference in just telling people you are nominated, and asking them to go watch the nomination page and taking their pick of the best and just spamming out messages asking people to vote for you with only THE FRIGGIN POLL linked.
I like your mods, and think you do crazy god work. But I basically lost every bit of respect I had for you when I saw that.

I don't envy the judges one little bit. I have my favourites, but if I had to rate these projects in an objective way.....Monumental task. Extremely difficult and I'm glad I'm not doing it! :)
