Ennies award nominee 2010.png

PathfinderWiki has been nominated for an ENnie Award for best website!

First and foremost, thanks to all Chroniclers for all your hard work. PathfinderWiki wouldn't be a shadow of the resource it is now without the contributions of dozens of active editors. Give yourselves a huge mug of Cayden's best brew and have a friend pat you on the back.

So now everyone's asking, "how can we make sure we win?"

Well, we can keep improving the site every day. Make edits, create articles, and participate in ongoing discussions in the forum and blogs. Spread the word about the site on your personal blogs, websites, messageboards, twitter, facebook, myspace, friendster, etc. Get more people using it, and we get more people editing it.

And lastly, VOTE! Public voting begins on July 16 and runs through July 25. The winners will be announced at GenCon on August 6.

Best of luck to all the nominees, including 14 nominations for Paizo, one for d20pfsrd, and one for Wayfinder! Let's have a Pathfinder ENnies sweep this year!

Congrats on the nomination and good luck in the public vote!

PS: Don't forget to throw me a vote for 2011 ENnies judge.  ;) — (talk) Thu, 15 Jul 2010 15:33:22 +0000

Pffft... yeah, of course! I'll make one up.

Good idea by the way. —Aeakett (talk) Fri, 16 Jul 2010 18:16:11 +0000

OK, a couple of new user boxes up. I'm open to suggestions on colors, etc. —Aeakett (talk) Fri, 16 Jul 2010 19:20:03 +0000
You are, of course, right. On the FAQ page it says: "Just remember, even if you do have access to multiple IP addresses, we follow the democratic principle of one person, one vote." In truth, even if a person were to vote more than once, given the size and visibility of the ENnies, it's unlikely that such unsporting tactics would have any significant effect. Time and effort spent trying to "beat the system" would be much better spent making edits. —Aeakett (talk) Fri, 16 Jul 2010 21:50:12 +0000
This is really awesome news guys! Never thought the wiki would grow to this point when we started the project last year. Win or lose know that this project is something very special that has really had an impact on the community and the game that we all love so much. I am really proud of all of you guys. —Alfred (talk) Sun, 18 Jul 2010 04:38:45 +0000
Even though I really hope that PFWiki will win the ENnie, we are truly up against tough competition in our category. D20pfsrd is a natural shoe-in, only because (IMO) crunch is always more generically applicable then setting info, and because we can't simply cut-and-paste stuff into the wiki. So tell all your friends to vote! —Brandingopportunity (talk) Tue, 20 Jul 2010 14:19:59 +0000
I'm ready to vote! —Cpt kirstov (talk) Tue, 13 Jul 2010 18:59:57 +0000
Should we make a "I voted for the wiki on the Ennies" userbox? —Cpt kirstov (talk) Fri, 16 Jul 2010 17:15:47 +0000
So, is anyone else going to be at the Gencon? —Goblin Witchlord (talk) Tue, 03 Aug 2010 13:21:32 +0000
Congrats on the nomination, all! When I learned of it I had to stop by and say hello. My wiki work may be elsewhere at the moment, but PathfinderWiki will always be a home I know I can return to. —Heaven's Agent (talk) Mon, 19 Jul 2010 19:15:54 +0000
Hurray! :) —JeskaD (talk) Mon, 19 Jul 2010 18:09:50 +0000
Congrats! I just voted and blogged about it on our staff blogSarah Manley (talk) Thu, 22 Jul 2010 00:23:47 +0000
Hi, any word on whether you won or not? I don't see a list of winners on the ENnie award page. —Sarah Manley (talk) Mon, 09 Aug 2010 18:22:23 +0000
Oh that is too bad. Congrats though for your great work and getting nominated! —Sarah Manley (talk) Mon, 09 Aug 2010 20:26:16 +0000
Wow! This is so awesome! You guys ROCK! A big thank you from one EXTREMELY happy Wikia employee. —TOR (talk) Sat, 17 Jul 2010 11:46:47 +0000
I have removed the "ballot stuffer" userbox, as we risk disqualification should we endorse or partake in illegal voting procedures. Each individual should vote for PathfinderWiki only a single time, to ensure fairness in the process. —Yoda8myhead (talk) Fri, 16 Jul 2010 21:35:15 +0000
We did not win, sadly, but there's always next year! —Yoda8myhead (talk) Mon, 09 Aug 2010 19:55:26 +0000
