Same rules apply as before - to vote, email your choices to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sat, March 26. Voting in each category is not required but encouraged. Votes for choices not on the ballot or for oneself will not be counted. Because people's minds may change, votes from the nominations round will not be "held over" to the voting round; a new ballot must be submitted for this round of voting to be counted. Dividing one's ballot among seperate emails (voting on "easier choices" right away and taking longer to decide on others for example) is allowed. The winners will be announced on the Muppety date of Friday April 1, 2011! Join us for an awards ceremony thread with hosts dwayne1115 & Aaron with cool printable award certificates by RedPiggy. (Or if you're unable to be there "live" and want to see the winners' list at a "quick glance", they'll also be added to the MC Forum Award Winner thread after the ceremony.) Email completed ballot to email@example.com by Saturday March 26, 2011 and include your forum handle in your email.
