The ENnies Award nominations have been announced and I’m delighted to say that Modus Operandi has been nominated for the fifth time in the Best Website category (its previous nominations were in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007). This brings my personal tally to six nominations and one honourable mention in the last nine years (UK Role Players was nominated in 2011 and Window of Opportunity (my Stargate SG-1 website – which has since been folded into Modus Operandi – received the honourable mention in 2004).
Actually, delighted is something of an understatement. Winning an ENnie is, for me, an almost impossible task (I wouldn’t even task Tom Cruise and his Mission: Impossible team with attempting it!). Why? Because, once the public voting starts it’s a popularity competition and, as such, the other nominees have a bigger audience. That’s why I think the actual award is in just being nominated. To be nominated, the ENnie judges have to sift through everything that was submitted and shortlist it down to five nominations. It’s also not a case of being nominated because of there not being enough entries as UK Role Players was submitted this year but not nominated.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t like to turn this year’s nomination into a Silver or Gold ENnie ;) That’s where you come in. Voting is now open at ennie-awards.com/vote. If you would be so kind as to mark Modus Operandi as “1” in the Best Website category I’d be most grateful (you can vote for other categories and even nominees in the Best Website category if you’d like – I did :)). You can only vote once and voting closes on Wednesday July 31st.
Thanks for your support.
