corrijean and batgirl. It's ridiculous that the receipt of one vote in one category disqualifies you from subsequent categories
I thought so, too. When I first saw the categories, my first thought was that cj would be a shoe-in for friendliest.
Here, let me do this. Since in the most active category corrijean was included due to the low number of members voted into the category, and by a vote of one, I will move corrijean to the friendliest category and move the member with the lowest number of votes receiving in the friendliest category to the most active.
What could be fairer than that?
bigpoison and kco
I'm changing my vote to bigpoison and Corrijean. I thought CJ would be a shoe in for friendliness
If you are changing the rules (hey, just like chess.com!), my votes for friendliest go to corrijean and batgirl
BigPoison! For friendliest.
FRIENDLIEST CATEGORY VOTING
From the large list of members we need to place them into the three categories of this month. We will do this through a category vote.
On July 6th vote for the member who you think is the friendliest. You have two votes on each of the days listed above (per category). All days are based on the Pacific. Do not vote until I tell you to. Note: a member cannot be put into more than one section, so if on July 5th Pikachu is voted into the top four people in most active, and if on July 6th Pikachu is voted into the top six for friendliest, then he will not be in friendliest but in most active only. Tip: have in mind the two members you want to vote for in each category. They should be (and have to be) different.
Number of members estimated in each section (these numbers can change):
Best chess player: AndyClifton, Kacparov, ozzie_c_cobblepot, heinzie (these people will not be in any other sections)
Most active: electricpawn, ivandh, corrijean, blackfirestorm666, LisaV (these people will not be in any other sections)
Friendliest: 6 members
It is now July 6th so lets get started on voting for members who should be in the friendliest category only! You have two votes (please vote in blue) and voting ends July 6th 11:59 PM Pacific.
VOTING IS OVER!
Finalized list for all categories:
Best chess player:

On July 8th I will send out the Head of Nominees question competition to the best chess player category!

The rest of us are keeping up with the Kardashians.
There's something basically wrong with the world when I'm receiving votes for "friendliest". I guess it could be even wronger, though. Say, if I were to have received votes for "best playa'.
Seriously, when I saw those categories my first thought was that so many on the list were already disqualified. I was hoping for an expansion into "most snarkiest."
I think the most relevant category is "funniest", but I reckon everybody knows that goldendog has that one sewn up; though, TheGrobe runs a close second.
Since I got that ruling that his moose jokes were not permitted, I am fairly comfortable with my margin.
No more of this crap, eh?
funny is relevant. or is it relative?
