Nominations will open today, and will continue through August 4, 2007.
There are two ways in which you can nominate someone (or some thread) as the case may be.
(1) Below this thread, in this forum, will be individual threads for each of the categories. You can post your nomination in the appropriate category.
(2) Or, if you want to remain anonymous, you can PM me with your nominations.
You can also "second" and "third" and "fourth" nominations, etc. In fact, this would be a good idea to insure that your nominated people reach the "finals."
If some category gets a zillion "tied" nominations, I will trim it down as fairly as possible - - taking into account people nominated multiple times, general variety, and so forth. But this particular part will be a matter of my unfettered discretion.
After the nominations are closed, I will create polls in this forum with the top nominations in each category for people to cast their votes for the winners. (The identities of the persons voting will not be disclosed.)
Subsequently, we will tally the votes and announce the winners!
