You will make two votes in every category. I'd accept one, but don't even try sending me three. And you can't double up, either, unless I like you. And I'm sure I don't like you. Write-ins will be read, ignored and/or laughed at. Trust me, my choices are correct. It's your taste that's wrong.

There should be further comments and commentary on the blog unless I don't feel like doing it. Otherwise, you can probably figure it out on your own. I've got faith in you. I really do.

Send your votes HERE, or post them HERE, or maybe even HERE if you feel so inclined. Or anything else that'll get to me. (A PM on CRZ's board, or a comment in that post if I decide to post them there. Maybe something on the Online Onslaught board should I bother posting it there again this year. I don't know. Just get the damned things to me, okay? Jeebus, how hard is it?! Really, people...)
