Hey Dave, I think you misunderstood that rule / perhaps it wasn't articulated perfectly. My understanding is that Alicia meant you can only nominate once per category. She was just using an example to say if you nominated someone for best avatar yesterday, you can't nominate someone for best avatar today. Go nominate anth!! (And Alicia, please clarify if I'm wrong. But if Dave is right that'd be really lame!!)

Also I like the three day window idea as long as Alicia reminds us every day what's eligible to be nominated that day, and which ones are on their third day.

If "Spoiler Avoider" cut off a few years ago, I'd say "Vote for me!" as I avoided them pretty strongly during the SOL era. (Even skipped listening to Don't Download This Song when it was released a month early and created/led the "Support Group" topic, for those who weren't listening. But I've read spoilers since then, so I guess it doesn't really count.

:think: Big Spoon, you seem eligible to me!
Everyone, be sure to read the rules!! :jp:

Some Avatars I would like to see nominated:
Grom's "Dark Side of the Moon"
Killingsworth's "Weird Al thinks I'm annoying"
FreeDeliveryFan's "Titanic Pizza"
Wizzerkat's "Don't Be A Moran"

Some Signatures I would like to see nominated:
Grom - "Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash"

and if you want to vote for me, I kinda liked my own "born this woway" signature from around the release of Alpocalypse.

Because Well, Well, Well demanded - I avoided spoilers for all of the albums ... I didn't even know about the "Internet Leaks", or whatever they were called, until after that album came out. For some of the albums, I just stayed away from certain topics here ... but for the last couple, I didn't even come around the forum at all until after the album was released.
PMFL!
