I’m so sorry, 123. It was absolutely not intentional. :(

This definitely hasn’t been handled perfectly. I know that and have made a lot of mental notes as to how to run it better next year. Thank-you everyone that participated in the voting. Thank-you to the nominees for being awesome enough to be nominated and congratulations to the winners!

I hope everyone can forgive me for the bad things that happened. :( and i hope that everyone would like for this to continue. This was a spur of the moment thing, so it wasn’t very well thought or planned out. Next year will be better, I promise! :D

Quick question: Why were none of my votes counted? In most categories it wouldn’t have made a difference, but I can see at least one where it would have either made a tie or broken one.

Oh no. :(
Do you remember your votes? I’ll add them in imemdiately!

I find that very hard to believe. I would never knowingly make such a mistake. I was trying to be as transparent and unbiased as possible. These awards have had a checkered past and I’ve done everything I’ve possibly could to move past that and restore people’s faith in the integrity and legitimacy of them.

  • Best Art on Kongregate
  • Best Artist on Kongregate (all-encompassing)

My intention with accepting non-2012 entries was because the Collabs section is being removed and I thought it’d be nice to honour the best-of that the section has produced. In regards to Adonis and his work being placed under the 2012 section. That was an honest mistake of mine because I didn’t check beforehand. Once it was pointed out to me (during the week of voting), I made the appropriate correction.

So…some sections are 2012-only but 2008-entries were accepted in other sections. I’m glad I didn’t participate. We can see why this event didn’t happen last year: people knew inconsistency and/or bias would inevitably happen :/

The results are in! They can be found here.

A few notes:

  • with the low turn out, I got rid of the minimum requirement. :(
  • Adonis hasn’t submitted any art work since 2009, so I changed to “Best of Kongregate”.

Nomiations will be closed on January 4th at midnight GMT.

Voting will be private. All votes will be private messaged to me directly so I can properly tabulate the votes. Please refrain from discussing your votes in public (via thread, shout or chat). No alternate accounts may be used during voting or all votes by that person will be thrown out. As well, a nominee must receive a minimum of 5 votes to be considered valid.

Votes will be accepted until January 12th at midnight GMT. The winners will be announced the next day, as well as a public listing of all votes. Please be advised, when I’ve received your vote and applied it, I will be deleting the private message for organizational purposes.

The nomination period ends in approximately 2 days, at that point I will post an official list of all nominees.

Since moderators and administrators have their own categories, KOTY is user-only. I’m going to update the nominations list and post the voting details shortly.

The Nominations are up-to-date. Any discrepancies or issues, I’ve contacted the person privately.

  • “Thread of the Year” doesn’t have to have been made in 2012, but if it’s pre-2012, it needs to be “continuous”
  • “Badge of the Year” has to have been made in 2012, but the game does not

I’m up-to-date on the nominations up to this point. A few points:

  • This is not the voting stage yet, just to be clear.
  • Please try not to duplicate nominations.
  • Please do not edit your post, since I might miss the change. If you have to, it’d be preferred if you (in a non-spammy way) posted again, or contact me directly (either privately or via shouts).

Clarifications:

  • For “Game of the Year” the game has to have been uploaded in 2012.
  • For “Kongregator of the Year” the user doesn’t have to have registered in 2012, but they must have been actinve in 2012.
  • For “Badge of the Year” the game doesn’t have to have been uploaded in 2012, but the badge(s) have to have been added in 2012.
