So, since no one has opened this year;s round of voting, this difficult and extremely responsible task has fallen on my hairy chest. Thank god there is such thing as copy/paste from Eilenna's and Spirit's topic from last year. I would urge all of you to vote, whoever doesn't vote will get an imaginary ban from me until the end of the year.
THE DEADLINE FOR VOTING IS 31st JANUARY!!!!
You may vote in as many or as few categories as you like, and let's keep the number of nominees per category to three, because it is not a very refined vote if you choose a whole bunch of people.
(Of course it's more fun if you try to vote in most of the categories, explain your nomination shortly)
You can change and complete your votes as you like until the 31st.)
We'll let you know the results in the beginning of February.
These awards are a tradition, made in good spirit, and I hope you'll have fun!
So please vote and spread the word!
Wishing you many Golden Eucariotes!
