not the best Gag on an actual Dick…
But I know so many comics that would fit with that one, both literally and metaphorically.

I feel like I'm at a rave, and not at my computer! *dances*


and DD razzies would be the meanest thing ever… half the people on this site are sociopaths anyway; that would just drive someone over the edge…

Razzies have to be done with the right mix of humor and cruelty and to someone who can take it because they have an appreciation of the humor involved. That'd be the difference between Troma productions and Twilight in this regard.

How about a “so bad it's good” award? (as opposed to offensive)

Woooo! :) I'm adding my two cents now.

Just double-checking: we can't vote for ourselves or our comic, and it's okay to leave spaces blank, correct? Thought I would ask in case anyone else had the same question. ;)

That should be correct

(Psst. Maybe you should include rules and eligibility info/links on the voting ballot. ;) )

Oh man, this is so hard! There are too many good comics on DD!

Edit: I don't understand the “Most Supportive Reader” award. What's that for?

Hippie, the Supportive Reader award is for someone who is very supportive of your comic - comments, advice, etc.

Man, I wish my schedule hadn't suddenly become so busy now. I had a lot of fun helping with the awards last year. Ah well, maybe next year I'll be out of work and can participate.

That's okay, NG. You have until the 31st, so there's no rush. Plenty of time to think about it =D

I've looked around a bit and can't find what I'm looking for, so I'm just going to ask:

Is there some kind of timeline or description of what steps occur in the process? I'd hate to say something wrong in a newspost etc.

I know the last day of voting is the 31st, but what happens after that point? It doesn't seem like it's a straight-up ‘most votes wins’ thing if we're having panelists and judges- if so approximately how long have they got; is there more voting after that; etc?

Skool, the timeline:

Judges/Panelists will have from Aug 3-21 to determine a final winner.
Presenters will have from August 3-21 to finish their presentation comics.
Presentations go live in batches starting Sept 1.

I'm putting my name in every box. While I may not have a 3D rendered comic, or write romance, I'm just so rad that I might as well sweep the votes and take home victory in every form. :V

HA HAA, this plan is so retarded it cant possibly fail!

I don't think so, I am pretty sure we just put the titles.

I was wondering, after the voting is done does each category get narrowed down to the top 5 or something?

There are so many categories. I had no idea how to figure out which one should get which. I ended up making 20something votes and I still had plenty of different options.
Those were my two cents.
If you have any other questions, please deposit a quarter.

Just a suggestion, I know it's totally last minute, but I think that the rules and stuff should be posted/linked somewhere on the voting site so people that haven't been following the forum threads can see them. I just got done arguing with someone that it's bad form to vote for yourself and had to hunt down the mentioning of it in the DD awards discussions that there's a standing rule against it, so posting them where people who'll be voting can see it might be a good idea…that and eligibility rules too so youse don't end up with a bunch of people's ineligible favorites piling up in there too.
