Well, voting has now closed in the ODP “Mozzie awards November 2002”, and I must say I’m disappointed. I didn’t win! *sob*. In the category of ‘Best Editall’, I came a lowly joint 15th with 2.4% of the vote (6 votes). 15th out of 35 isn’t too bad is it?
A final rallying by myself in the dying hours of the polls (with oblique references to The Prisoner in the form of “If Number 2 is runner-up then who is Number 1? is Number 6” and “Vote for me (in Best Editall and/or Best Ambassador)! A vote for me is a vote for variety!” helped increase my standing in the ‘Best Ambassador’ poll to joint 10th position with 9 votes (5.1% of all votes cast went to me). Question is – is 10th out of 17 better or worse than 15th out of 35?
Never mind, it was a hell of a lot of fun and I’m going to try even harder next time (I’ve gotta win one of these days – and if it wasn’t for those pesky newbies I would have gotten away with it). Congratulations all those who took part, many thanks to all those that voted, commiserations to those who didn’t win, thanks to all the ‘non-nominated editors’ which help make ODP the place it is and to the winners – “I’ll get you next time….”
