It's usually around March but since 2 months have already passed, I assume it'll be next year.
Just a guess.

Nobody stepped up to do the awards this year, and none of last year's team wanted to do them again because of some drama. There was one person with prior experience who agreed to hold the awards together if other people volunteered to help, but I guess no one did.

Thats sad that we couldnt have one this year because people couldn't stop bitching about the people who made the awards being in the nominations. NOW WE HAVE NOTHING. Not even each other.

I'd volunteer to help in some fashion but I'll be honest and say I don't have the resources or reserves to do it. And the fact I have no idea where to start or really, what to do, so I'm ill-equipped to do anything.

because it was a legitimate reason to bitch about? A nominations is pretty crap if its not regulated and at least free from common bias.

Right, I might as well appear in this thread since I was the one who was supposed to do it.

I just didn't feel like doing it honestly. The whole "judges having their comics thing in the nominations" isn't entirely the reason I didn't want to do it, it's just because it was a shit ton of work for an extremely low pay off. It was a volunteer job; none of us got paid to do it, no one asked us to do it, it was just a great idea thought up by Tezzle. Where I felt like there was no pay off was not only the lack of gratitude but the lack of results. We wanted to show off comics and get people interested in other comics other than the most popular ones but the problem with this is that it still was a popularity contest. Some of the more...let's say "intelligent" members of the site certainly checked out the competition, but in the end, I felt like there was no gain from actually doing it. I don't feel like anyone got any more publicity from being a nomination or winning. If they won, they were already popular and if they didn't they were probably somewhat popular as well. No one was interested in going to another comic, and that's what was in Tezzle's vision. Since I couldn't think of a way to change this for the better, I decided not to say anything about it.

As for the lack of gratitude, I thank everyone who messaged me about how good we were and thanking us for actually doing it but I also got quite a few hate messages for "rigging the awards" and many of others on and off the forums saying next year's needed to be "less biased" (seriously! I got bloody e-mails! Who has time for that?) You want better? You fucking do it. I don't want any part of it. I was happy enough to put in all the work I did this year. I didn't ask for anything. The thank you's I got, again, were nice. But the bitching and the whining about how fair it was turns me off to the idea.

If someone else wants to step up the plate, I will NOT be on your committee, but I'll tell you at the very least how Tezzle ran things and toss in some pointers here and there. I don't want my name on this but I will help. But someone else has to be leader, I'm not putting a bullseye on my head again.

There was quite a bit of frustration regarding last year... Not really regarding the whole judges voting debacle. That didn't help, but that was mostly just an annoyance to finish with. To be honest I wouldn't have minded giving it another go this year, but it takes a huge amount of time which I can't spare at the moment... Maybe next year.

I have free time now, but not sure how much I'll have into the summer and later on down the line. I also feel like I'm still too much of a noob to be in charge of anything serious, and I also don't know anything and have no self-confidence regarding representing the community.

Bummer, this was such fun to read through last year. I'm sorry that it turned out to be such an exhausting experience for the judges.

How did it work out in years past?

When it was run by Afro, Tezzle, and company, it worked greatly.

When it was run by Wave, long story short, it sucked.

Everyone thought she rigged that too, surprise surprise. :\
But that wasn't the official ones so y'know let's just pretend it didn't happen.

Sounds good. It never happened.

Wait, what are we talking about again?
