Discussing how we vote for the winner

The time is rapidly approaching when we will need to vote for a winner and I wanted some feedback and suggestions from the community before we started. I have had a few ideas about how we could carry out the process. To be honest, transparency is the most important aspect of the Golden Gobbos, that and the fact there should be as few rules and regulations as possible so the competition feels approachable by all collectors, gamers and enthusiasts.

So here are my suggestions

1) We use this forum- just open a thread and members can vote. This would perhaps be the simplist option but would this get the same level of coverage as using a blog?
2) We use a blog post, perhaps on the Oldhammer blog, but again how many people would see this?
3) We all advertise the voting (with links on our blogs, forums etc) and vote through email to me. I'll then organise the data and publish on my blog and this forum.

Anyone have any other thoughts or ideas so we can get the voting going with the minimum of fuss in a way all members of the community are happy with?

Cheers,

Orlygg.

What about having the voting poll on here and advertising it through the oldhammer and our own blogs - nice and easy with maximum coverage.

Keep it simple, I second Thantsants.

Re: Discussing how we vote for the winner

Sounds like a plan. Hopefully Treps can set something up for us ASAP. Then the real problems begin - choosing the winner!

Do we all agree that we should only vote for others rather than our own entries?

Yep - that sounds fair. Will there be a time limit - say a week to get votes in?

That makes sense. Hopefully, Treps will be able to create a poll and reference the entries over at the Citadel Collector. I'll PM him and ask.

Re: Discussing how we vote for the winner

I did promote orlyg as a moderator for the section and give him rights to do polls to on the section.

I thought that everybody could make polls but not... So if somebody needs/wants to make polls just PM me !

Re: Discussing how we vote for the winner

Thanks Treps. I'll have a play with the software for a few days and set up a poll this weekend. Then the voting can commence. Any ideas how long we should keep the voting poll open?

A week or two?

Is self promoting allowed? For instance, may I post my entry on my blog and then link to the other entries and the voting page?

These are supposed to be anonymous entries...so I don't think this would be a good idea.

I think 2 weeks of voting time is plenty...1 week would probably do.
