Since this has never truly been explained to me on these boards: can we vote for ourselves?

(Not that I ever would, of course...)

Yes, you can vote for yourself. I encourage you to not do so, and very much enourage not doing so in every category at the very least :P

2005-06-01, 04:33 AM
Only one of the Misfit Villans are finished and posted. Don't the entrents have to be finished?

Gorbash Kazdar
2005-06-01, 04:42 AM
This is why I wished people had only posted to the thread after they were done -_-

Next contest, going to much more strict about that.

I've voted. And sadly, did not nominate myself for any category. It's up to you, people!

2005-06-01, 06:08 AM
Question: Do you put the name and the catagory in the pm to vote?

2005-06-01, 06:11 AM
Both. And it is recommended (by me) that you enter all your votes into a single message, to avoid time-wasting multi-post reading on the mod's behalf.

2005-06-01, 07:04 AM
I never managed to finish the equipment list for my 4th character, as a result there's no AC or attack info.

Just letting you know asap in case it needs to be removed from the list of entries

Gorbash Kazdar
2005-06-01, 02:34 PM
Yeah, that would an incomplete entry...

If anyone has voted for McAdoom, send a PM to change votes over.

Also, anyone can vote - you don't have to be a contestant to vote on the entries.

2005-06-01, 11:19 PM
Gah, sorry I couldn't finish in time, my vote has been cast however, maybe I will be able to finish the dungeon later.

2005-06-04, 11:57 AM
Just curious how voting is going, Gorby. :)

While I don't have any qualms about voting for myself when I honestly believe I have the best entry, I currently don't have time to read through entries. My employer has not-so-kindly decided to block this site recently, so I can't read through them at work at the moment - though I'm working on getting the block lifted.

If I get the time to read through the entries by the 8th, I'll vote. Otherwise, I'll just sit back and enjoy and wish everybody good luck.

Voting is going slowly. I'm thinking of putting up a link in the Gaming forum to see if I can more people to check the entries out and vote.

2005-06-04, 11:36 PM
I know how long it took me to make one entry - I can't imagine how long it'd take to read 'em all.

Drumming up potential voters would be a good thing.

;DVote, vote, vote, vote for the evil items Party Design Contest! ;D

2005-06-05, 04:20 PM
Finally got time to look at all the entries and vote (It took a while) . Has everyone here read all the entries in full before voting?

2005-06-05, 08:29 PM
Has everyone here read all the entries in full


before voting?

That's why I haven't voted yet. ;)

Gorbash Kazdar
2005-06-05, 09:06 PM
Heh, yeah, please read ALL the entries before you vote.

2005-06-05, 11:54 PM
I read 'em all. Took me the better part of an hour.

2005-06-07, 08:04 PM
I'm in the process of reading and determining who to vote for now. As slow as I read, this may take a while... ::)

Gorby - it's been a while since I've done a contest around here. Will the total votes be announced, or just the winners?

2005-06-07, 08:37 PM
nevermind - I sent a PM....

2005-06-07, 09:25 PM
yay for making three posts in a row... ::)

My votes are cast. Once Gorby announces the winners, I have some comments to make on a few entries. I'll just say, though, that there were three entries that really impressed me (other than my own, of course ;) ). it's obvious a lot of you worked really hard on your entries - I know I did.

Good luck to everybody!

I'm still working on some stuff for the awards and all, so I'm going to extend the voting, and announce the winners on Friday.

Thanks for your patience!

2005-06-08, 01:57 PM
Voting was hard.
There wasnt' as much evil teams to choose from I thought.
By the way, the Order of the Stick doesn't have to be fully good right? Belkar was evil in the party wasn't he?

The Glyphstone
2005-06-09, 11:29 AM
nope, not a lot of evil teams, and only one group of items adventurers that stood out.. ;D

2005-06-09, 05:11 PM
my most foolish decision was to make my party NEUTRAL! GRAAAGAHA!

No OoTS/LG award for me. :'(

(Though you could sorta classify my party as good if you wanna...)

2005-06-09, 08:01 PM
Pumpkinetics - when voting is over, remind me that I wanted to discuss something about your entry. I'm old and senile, so I'm just as likely to forget as not. ;)

I'm going to tabulate the votes a little after midnight (Eastern) tonight, so if anyone has been thinking of voting but hasn't yet, you have about 3 more hours!
