First of all, I want to thank everyone who participated in the voting process. I apologize for being so persistent and/or annoying about it, but I wanted to make sure that everyone knew and had a chance to vote. We received 22 ballot submissions in total, so I thank all 22 of you who participated.
A few technical disclaimers before we get to the results:
First: I did not vote. Acting as poll moderator, and seeing the voting results, I felt it would be dishonest to vote after seeing who was winning each category and so forth. I worked as an objective collector of votes -- except in ties. Which leads me to my second point...
Second: For categories that had ties or no clear winners, the results were passed along to a special selection committee -- which consists of PenHawk, notkapowski, 2.1 seconds left, KU Grad 08, and fizzle406. These individuals were selected because they volunteered. If committee members were involved in the tie, they were excused from voting and discussing said category.
Third: The final category -- Best All-Around RCT Commenter was a tie. The SSC and I agreed that we should have a run-off poll between the two candidates who had the most votes. So, please see the bottom to vote (again!)
And now we may proceed to the results.... The envelopes please......
**even more dramatic drumroll as 6th fumbles with the envelope**
