And of course, here are the rules (Albeit a very few of them):

1. Please, please, don't vote for your hold just because it's yours. Vote for the one you feel is the most deserving of the award. This is about recognizing good holds, not about getting some kind of monetary reward.

2. Awards are minor, and I really haven't decided exactly how I want to do it.

3. The poll closes on the 8th of November. Plenty of time, plenty of time.

Wow...there really aren't a lot of rules. I would like to note that some of the nominees weren't valid, so if you don't see one of your nominees up there, that's why.

I'd like to thank everyone who nominated holds as well. We had a great turnout this year, and I'm very impressed. I'd also like to congratulate all holds that got nominated, and remind people that just because a hold didn't get nominated doesn't mean it's a horrible hold. I'd guess that 98% of the holds out there are worth playing, and this award ceremony is here to recognize the most original and well-crafted of them.

-Patrick

What category? Concept? You're eligible for that one - it's the only Technical award that's open to any hold out there.

Bumping this because some categories are still surprisingly even (...what? 4 holds sharing the first place in one of them!), and I'm not sure there'll be enough votes to make a difference otherwise within one week that's left for voting.

Come on people! There's still one tie left to break, and a couple of close races to deal with. Only four more days left to vote!

That's easy. PIE.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 etc.

Now, pi, that's really difficult.

Less than one day left! If you still want to vote, please do it now! Don't wait for the last moment as the time might not be correct.

By the way, since I will be leaving this forum for some time (before even the voting is finished), I want to thank anyone who had voted for me.

And congrats to all the winners! (and the nominees as well, for most categories, it was really hard to choose between them.)
