It has been brought to my attention that a few nominations can't take place because the post was made before the cutoff of May first.
Attached below from the rules thread:
"Any moc (or person for the Newbie category) posted between May 1st of last year and June 30th of this year is eligable to win!"
Now, I am nothing if not fair and I truly see this as a democracy so I put it to you, the group members to vote on this. How lenient should we be on the dates?
On the one hand, allowing the dates to overlap a bit would let people get things in that were overlooked simply BECAUSE they were too new at the time.
But, playing devil's advocate, if we extend the date by say... a month, then why can't we extend it two months, or three... or more?
So I do understand both sides of the argument here. What are your thoughts? I really do want to hear from everyone and will keep my "vote" to myself for the time being. Should we extend the cutoff or keep the dates firm?
I just thought i'd mention that Both Tom Simon and I joined close to April the 20th 2010. The anouncement for Mocie nominations was March 13th 2010. For this years nominations its from May 31st 2010 - June 1st 2011. So effectively the period in which we joined hasn't been covered by any MOCie awards.
Just to throw in what i've just found from research :) Other than that, this is great Chris. Permalink
My vote is to add some leniency. I would give one month. As Chris stated, the newer builders from last year were too new to be known or to have made a difference last year. Whereas now, they have shown us some seriously nice builds! Permalink
