Oh, well that's true. It WOULD be nice to have a special custom viewer set up to just cut to the chase and be able to view the flashes up for the monthly voting without having to go through their actual pages, but... on the other hand, doing it this way means we get to see what award(s) the flashes already won, which... I dunno about for everyone else... but for me had an effect on what I voted for (if I was torn between two flashes for a spot on my list... and if one already got daily 1st and a weekly award... but the other one only got daily 3rd place... and I like them about the same amount... I'm going to give a higher vote (or a vote, period) to the flash that got "only" a daily 3rd).
So anyway, it'd be nice, but I'm not sure how easily that would be created by liljim. German sex, eh? o_o

No kidding! It's alphabetic in the exact same way that the BBS users online lists are alphabetic, I should add.
That is, SOME non-letter characters will drop your name/flashtitle at the FRONT of the list... and others will drop it at the BACK of the list... but NO NON-LETTER CHARACTERS will be ignored and placed in the middle of the list.
IOW... (character)Hello! is never going to be sorted in with the H's... it will either be before the A's... or after the Z's. Hope that's helpful to people like Matt out there who were confused.

Oh wait... you're right. Mine was out of order because it had "- -" around it.
Heh, there ya go. "-yourflash'sname" is going to be at the start of the list. And, I might add, "_yourflash'sname" will be at the END of the list. For whatever reason, dashes get counted as pre-alphabet and underscores get counted as post-alphabet... and that was no surprise to me due to it being--again--the same way on the BBS users online list.
And they all lived happily ever after.

Yeah, I saw that and wondered to myself - will a few folk be tempted to include punctuation before their title, just to have it higher on the list?
I doubt it, but it was an interesting thing to ponder for a few seconds.
I thought of that yesterday, actually, but didn't want to say anything for fear of giving any jackasses ideas. I suspect that we will find more and more flash authors placing dashes or double-quotes in front of their titles... or making sure to start their titles with words like "A" or "An" or ones featuring other high-up-in-the-alphabet letters. The only question is... how many of THOSE flashes are going to be good enough to get on the front page and/or win one of the top 5 daily awards each day? That remains to be seen.
Just to check, there's slightly under 25 hours left now, right? I mean, I presume the deadline's the NG roll-over, i.e. around 5amGMT?
liljim said it will end at 11:59:59 PM ET (i.e. NG time) tonight, yes.

I had too much free time back then. :::swallows:::
Plus, um... most of the time I was just voting 3 or whatever was close enough to the flash's existing score... and not spending a lot of time watching them, reviewing them, or thinking about them all that much (though I did find some old gems while doing the process).
So, yeah... voting in the templist to get NG changed over from 100 votes UJ to 200 votes UJ... was nowhere near as tiresome as trying to watch 150 movies in a couple days. At least we had several months to do it, yanno?

There are 792+ people ahead of you in experience who weren't active enough during February to qualify as one of the "top 2000 active exp users." That's the only reason, it ain't a mystery, man.
And I'm not that surprised by that, personally. Just look at the top 50... there's at least 5-10 people who aren't depositing at all, and a few more who deposit every now and then. If you go from there down all the way to #2000, you will find hundreds of non-depositing people. Trust me, I've passed quite a few of them to move up to my current #134 spot in exp.
