2,000 users is a good number. In reality, if you add authors & site moderators you should have a group of about 2,190. If the authors aren't already on the list of active & depositing users. I love this idea. It really controls the way to choose good flash. So many of the top 50 entries are voted on by new site visitors who come & go.

2,200 users is nothing compared to the average number of voters. Too few judges could be asking for trouble. This way you get good results without the drama. Just by looking at the first two choice lists you can see the diverse interests.

I hope judges aren't rewarded with choosing a list that wins. That could lead to group voting's, etc.

Thanks Tom, this rox.

I'm honoured to be among the users who can cast votes. I think of it as a privilege and I am going to do some meticulous research to make sure I vote for worthy entries.

On a side note, I think it would be better if you allowed more actual artists to vote, who have not necessarily been very active the last month. If you've got one or two daily awards, for example, I think you should be allowed to have your say. And maybe 2000 is a little too many? If it had been fewer I might not have been included, but nonetheless...

Thanks to Tom and Wade and everyone else who made this possible!

I like the system. At first I was skeptical about the whole idea, but I can see how the way you guys have it set up it will work. I like how it is set up but have a few things I felt were worth mentioning:
-tons of flash artists with more than one nominated flash shouldn't be able to sweep the prizes
(I made an exception for the Time Trial, as it is a group of artists under the guise of the same flash)
-Perhaps an ability to split your vote, but only once. This would be nice because I just found myself torn between a couple of flash entries that I really liked, and ended up having to bump others off when they were really just tied with the ones I voted for.

That's it for now. I guess I was just being a stick in the mud about the whole idea, but as I said, I'm a sucker for cool new features.

Good luck to all the artists nominated.

Jesus, would you people stop showing who you voted for, it's spoiling it and could start to produce bias.

I was going to post a similar message, but reasoned that if Tom or Wade cared, they could tell folk to stop themselves.

And if they don't care, then I suppose it's OK...

So I guess depositing paid off in the end...Most of the people who have top 2000 accounts aren't over-rated-artist fanboys, so people will actually have a chance.

Good luck to the people I voted for!

I think they chose a selection for a reason, they chose people who can be trusted and wont go mass-voting on one movie/game because someone else does

Wooo!

Nice feature, I thought it was going to be a hand picked panel of around 20 judges, not the 2,000 most deposited users.

Well, I've voted on mine.

Yeah, maybe 10 people showed their votes. But it's ten people from 2000 ! Does it really matters ?.. It's just interesting to see these votes. And they are really different. There are already mentioned more than 30 different flash submissions. I don't think that it can influence whose, who haven't yet voted. At least - not me - that's for sure. I have a strong opinion.

here's my picks. i think they were wise considering my tastes and the fact that i chose for myself and was kind of angry about all the illwillpress and weebl picks.

i'm glad weebl broke his arm. i hope it stays broken. the only good thing about magical trevor 2 was that weebl was in nearly unbearable pain while making it.

No, we track for alt accounts in the voting process, so that would be a bad idea. :)

Tom,I just voted at that link.

I figured I'd post my alt accounts for you,so you know not to send them the link.

I wonder if at the end of the year, they will bring all the past winning entries of the different months together for one big final vote for the top 5 of the year, and the cash prize is even BIGGER!

Also I'm dead chuffed that I'm finally selected in something semi-important on this site...ok I'm one of 2000...but still...nice to feel *sniff* special...
....
excuse me *runs out the room to get a tissue*
