That would involve having far too many awards.

Yes, & if there are too many awards it becomes like the Kindergarten egg painting contest where "everyone's a winner because they tried".

And that's terrible.

"Everyone" may be a winner in those situations, but that means they're also the losers and the biggest loser is the moron who thought up that stupid equality-of-competition idea in the first place.

*Take a deep breath*

Sorry for the rant, it's just that moronic ideas like that make me want to punch a baby.

Here's what I'll be putting in the poll options on Sunday if nobody else has any additional suggestions:

- Best comic - Just the one award.
- Best Humour Comic / Best Story Comic
- Funniest Comic / Storytelling Award
- Best gag-a-day / Best longform comic
- Best Use of the gag-a-day format / Best use of the longform format

In order for the first one to win it would have to have more votes than all of the other options combined, as votes for having two categories would be split between all the other options.

Any additions?

Just to check, we are having a "Best Comic" award regardless of what the polls come up with, right?

Oh yeah.
Sorry I should have been more clear on that.

The first post has been edited and a poll added. It will be open for seven days.
Please vote carefully and don't be too eager. You have until this time next Sunday to choose.
