Sorry For The Voting Delay; Overall & Personal Still Delayed

Posted: December 1, 2009 by D. Collier in Uncategorized

Sorry for the delay in voting. We have been facing a bit of a technical problem.

Since the biggest categories (Overall and Personal) require a customized poll from the polling service, it takes longer than usual to receive those completed polls. We were hoping to receive them by this Sunday, when that didn’t happen, we went for a short delay for the purpose of releasing of all of polls out at once.

However, it is now Tuesday, so what we have decided to do is release all of the other completed polls and get Overall and Personal up as soon as possible.

The schedule has changed as follows:

First Round: December 1 – December 12
Second Round: December 13 – December 19

Sorry for this and thanks for your understanding.

  1. Patti says:

    a bunch of the blogs in the New category have bad links. please fix.

  2. Northern BC Dipper says:

    Should be fixed now.

  3. Stephen H. says:

    Are the lists of website’s in each category indicative of their current ranking in the voting?

  4. Tamir Birk says:

    To the website administrator – under the “politics” category, the link to InformedVote is incorrect and results in an error. It should be

  5. Northern BC Dipper says:

    No, its just a random order.

  6. Northern BC Dipper says:

    The problem should be fixed.

  7. Dave Maas says:

    If we dont feel like filling out the entire (and very long) list for each category, does it work to just vote for one or two at the top and then submit?

  8. Northern BC Dipper says:

    Yeah, you can rank as many or as little blogs as you want.

    It’s fine if you rank only 1, 5, 10 or whatever.

  9. mike says:

    I noticed that after you vote, sometimes it says January 12th is the next round, I assume they mean December 12th.

    Everything else looks great!!!!

  10. Northern BC Dipper says:

    Do you remember which polls that it said January 12th instead of December?

  11. Mike says:

    I see it for Best Blog Post.

  12. Gabriel says:

    I don’t seem to see the links when I’m voting for blogs, yet I did when I voted for ‘Best Post’ or ‘Best Post series’.

    I guess it’s just happening to me?

  13. The name of my blog MillarLITE has been misspelled in the “Humour” category (spelled there with one “l” instead of two) … can you please correct? (you did get the “ar” correct – that’s the mistake most people make πŸ˜‰

  14. Audley says:

    Are the 2009 nominee logos available to post onto sties?

  15. oscar says:

    very good. look this page,

  16. Brian says:

    I think you have Jennifer Bushman’s blog up twice in the Crafts and Cooking – under “Jennifer Bushman” and under “Eat Planet.”

  17. Brian says:

    The lists aren’t in order of the current standing of the blogs?

    Too bad!

    It would make it much more exciting to watch what’s happening in rela time.

  18. Dolly Mountjoy says:

    I don’t see links on Best Humour Blog, but I see them on Best New Blog. Crazy!

  19. Tamir Birk says:

    Agreed – there should be links to the blogs for all the categories.

  20. Saskboy says:

    “Are the 2009 nominee logos available to post onto sties?”

    I don’t think we have made one yet. If someone volunteers and makes one, please offer it to the blogging community. Someone can email me individually to get “2009” text and the 2008 button by email to merge them.

  21. Saskboy says:

    “there should be links to the blogs for all the categories.”

    That’s the goal. There’s just a lot of copy/pasting to do to get it all complete.

  22. Tamir Birk says:

    Thanks for the response Saskboy. I appreciate the hard work you guys have been putting into this.
