TTCAL Awards: Nominees! — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

TTCAL Awards: Nominees!

Hello Ladies! Here they are, the nominees! :) It's quite a list and I wanted to wish every single lady the best of luck moving forward to the voting!


How this is going to work:

  • Starting today: you can campaign for yourself! In the past ladies have created AW threads advocating for themselves. Others have created badges and updated their siggies. It's completely 100% up to  you. The nominations start today and continue until next Friday.
  • Voting will begin on Monday December 8th and will be open for 72 hours. I will post a thread on TTCAL to alert everyone to the link to the voting station ;)

A few things to keep in mind:

  • If you are nominated in more than one category you can campaign for the one that you want to win most! This is totally your decision!
  • If you are fortunate to get KU in the next 3ish weeks PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE let me know. Send me a PM so I can remove you from the list. Awards save for the (SALer) is reserved exclusively for current members of TTCAL

Re: TTCAL Awards: Nominees!

  • Thanks again for putting all of this together!
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site. 



  • One question! Can one lady win only a single category? If they want one the most do they withdraw from the others?
    Yes, once all the votes are calculated the lady from each category with the highest number of votes will win that category and subsequently be removed from all the others.

    In the past I don't beleive anyone "withdrew" from any of the categories. But, if you are interested in winning one and not the others I think it's okay. If you want to go that route let me know.

  • Thanks for clarifying PC. Soooo, for example since @furrypaws is the only nominee in best clicky polls she would automatically win... But what if I wanna vote for her for something else??? :D
    That's the issue! If you nominate others for clickly polls then it will wont force me to give her the award for clicky polls.

  • What about the BWI award? (bumping while intoxicated) I know I mentioned it before, but never followed up with you on it.

    That's the issue! If you nominate others for clickly polls then it will wont force me to give her the award for clicky polls.


    I thought the time for nominations was of limited duration and now past?

    It seems to me that by saying we are going to continue adding nominations to categories that you have now posted who the nominees are, the voting system is being "rigged".


    Finally, to everyone now saying you want more categories (even if in jest), you really have no idea how stressfu

    I'm going to agree to this. I'm really getting the impression it's vote rigging but I wanted to be fair and kind but the more I think about it the more putt off I am by it.

  • @pinkcamino that is fine. By your original response it seemed that you were saying I could nominate others! But I understand completely, no worries.
    You weren't honest in the clicky polls thread Amy. And yes, originally I was fine with it but the more I thought it through the more I realized that this was likely fueled by some plan to rig the votes in favor of another category.


  • @pinkcamino - thank you so much for all of your hard work.  You're awesome.

  • @PinkCamino: Wow, I've been gone for a little while so just saw all this, and just wanted to let you know thank you for setting this up. It seems like an incredible amount of work!

  • I wasn't trying to be dishonest. I'm not sure what else I can say about not remembering seeing the original thread. As i said, I am assuming I thought others would be nominated. I nominated more after thinking it was okay to add to the pool. I'm sorry that it turned into such a big deal - I see the awards as something fun and definitely don't care for any drama. I appreciate all the work you've put into getting this all together and completely respect the decisions.
    I'm not entirely sure why you are so concerned about @Furrypaws winning that category. So concerned that you nominated 2-3 extra people to neutralize the vote.

    TBH, what happened today is a symptom of something far larger going on on TTCAL right now.


  • Whoa PC!  Good job, thank you so much!

  • No campaigning for me, as I'm just honored to be nominated for a couple of categories along with some awesome ladies!

    Thanks for all your hard work PC!!

    All of this. I'm totally shocked I was even nominated for anything. I feel I'm way too new and there are so many ladies that were nominated that have been here longer and have given much more to this board than I have.

    Good luck ladies, I have no idea how I will even vote, your are all awesome! :x
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site.
