A blog about....well about....something. Really.
Please Vote For Pesty Elf! (and Remy!)
The voting is up now for this years GaiAcademy Awards, and Pesty Elf is up for the Gaiamanatarian Award (best charity).

If you to go this thread and scroll to the bottom, you will find instructions on how to vote. Mechanically, that is. I'm urging you to vote for Pesty Elf when you get to the actual voting smilies/icon_smile.gif.

If you're not familiar with Pesty's Christmas Charity, visit the thread here. I've been involved with the charity pretty much from the early days and it's an upright and forthright organization that helps fulfill a lot of Gaian's Christmas Wishes every year. It would be nice if it was recognized in a larger arena.

Thanks very much for your consideration and time.

ETA: It slipped my attention (hey, it was late!) that Remy LeBeau 1982 is also nominated in Best Aquarium Set Design. As long as you're voting, y'know smilies/icon_wink.gif.

    I'm not trying to offend Remy (or the others) but honestly if those are supposed to represent the top most well designed tanks on Gaia then things have really taken a turn for the worse. I used to see tanks that were amazing that some folks had obviously spent way too much time on getting everything positioned just right.
    This year's nominations were not 'bad' tanks. I just feel that out of millions of registered users Gaia could have come up with better - unless things have deteriorated so much that few folks are bothering.

    But I kind of felt that way for some of the other categories too like best sig and best comedic post and such. One possible explanation is that it (what ever 'it' is for each category) is out there but not enough Gaians are interested in the academy awards to find and nominate it.

    This is the second year of the GaiAcademy awards, and since they're not cash-generating, they get bupkes for official publicity. Most people don't even know they exist - there's been what, one Dev Notice about them? I didn't even know the nominees were done until I stumbled across the thread in the GCD - and that was only because I was looking to see what items were in the latest gold generators. (Prices often come down on them in the MP and there might be something I want. You never know.)

    This is why I try to get out the vote for friends who are nominated - it's more a popularity contest than anything else. And it's paying it forward for those who helped me last year.

    I think you have it right - that there are fewer and fewer people bothering. But that's true of all of Gaia.
