I'm honored to have a product on the shortlist again this year. Yay!

Zachary The First said...

Hey, it was well-earned. Take a bow. :)

Fat Dragon Games said...

I'd just like to say that me and the rest of the Fat Dragon crew are deeply honored and humbled to be nominated this year. Many thanks!

Hey, is that 2 years in a row for Fat Dragon? Congrats--even though my cardstock never come out as pretty as the examples. :( I'm a lefty, and doomed to suck at cutting stuff. :)

Animalball Kyle said...

Yeah, we're happy that the Animalcast got nominated for best podcast. My brother was worried that Fred Hicks was going to nominate his and we'd get frozen out (he's got a bit of a man crush on you, Fred).

Steve said...

I was happy to see the two Open Design projects get nominated!

Zachary The First said...

Well, Fred got his own nomination (Spirit of the Season), so he's fine. :)

Meg said...

Zach, are you going to put up your personal nomination list?

Zachary The First said...

To be honest, Meg, the ENnies and I do not see eye-to-eye on this. I am lobbying and have lobbyed very hard on this, but they feel it might affect how people vote, or might adversely impact the other judges, so they're asking me and the other judges who -did- want to share to hold off until after voting. Their decision, not mine. I'm holding off for the moment, but will be sharing just as soon as I can. I don't agree with it(especially since I ran on a platform of openness and direct communication), but that's how its been laid out to me, and I'm not the policy-maker. Just being honest.

I am hoping we can find a compromise, and I really do understand they're doing what they feel is best, but bottom line, I promised I'd share everything I can and intend to. It comes down to a question of when. If you have a question on a particular product and don't feel comfortable asking in comments, my email is off to the right side of the page. :) I'll try to answer it as best I'm able.

Yep, this is our second year. I never thought we'd get nominated last year, let alone win and then get nominated again this year. Stop by the booth at Indy and we'll discuss some tips and tricks for cardstock! :D

Zachary The First said...

Man, that sounds great. I'll definitely be doing that. I know I need a better cutting surface, for one. I'll have to take notes!
