The Annual Bendis Board Award Voting Has Begun!
First let me say that I wasn't nominated for anything this year. I intentionally stated that I did NOT want to be nominated because it was WAY too much pressure last year (I won Best Female Poster and Best Noob.) and I didn't want to experiance that again this year.
Now that I see what's going on I'm EXTREMELY happy I wasn't nominated. The awards this year are being done in a very unprofessional way.
First, we're being asked to vote for best avatar, given five choices, yet only two avatar pics are posted in the voting thread. This is completely biased and not fair to the remaining three.
Second, there is only a Best Poster Award, not Best Male and Best Female. The males on the board FAR out number the females so this too is unfair.
Third, in the Best Picture Thread(Whatever the hell that means.) a choice is "Any picture of Goddard." WHAT!? There have been a dozen or so pics of Goddard and it's not fair to the other nominees that his pics get so wide a voting range. (Sorry, Goddard, but it's true.)
Fourth, a certain poster is nominated in every thread. This is favoritism in it's purest form. This poster possibly deserved to be nominated in one or two, but every one? Friends get special attention I guess.
I imagine that the guy putting this together did a lot of work in doing so but (Sorry Craig)it was done wrong to start with and it's being carried out wrong in every respect. No disrespect to anyone nominated, but I refuse to cast ANY votes in this years awards and know that it will be looked on as a joke in the future.
Last year the awards recieved hundreds of votes and wrer announced at three major comic boards. They had dignity and respect. This year that isn't happening.
I won't be posting this at the board because it would cause too much of a stir. Enough people from there read my blog so I know my feelings will be heard.
That is all.
