Hey, no problemo with the messages! I needed to be urged 2 or 3 times before I finally took the time to register and vote. Hope my vote makes a difference.
Your vote matters as much as any other. There are only a few thousand votes cast for each side in this race, so, yes... it certainly makes a difference in the result!
i agree, it's totally ace that we can all unite and contribute to the future of this site, especially as it's offered as a free service with a paying option. that was a masterstroke, i reckon. definitely worth the fee.
so yeah, word to lj :)
I conned some of my computer illiterate friends and family to hop on my computer and vote anyway...
So together, we've racked up about 17 votes. Which isn't much, but considering about 12 of them had to be walked through the 'point and click' part of the voting... I'm doin good! WOO HOO!
17 votes is a LOT! That's about a third of a percent, and that makes a big difference in this race!
When I last looked, LJ was leading Blogger by 5% in the personal category.
4% currently. We could use a bigger cushion with PayPal, which should get us a bigger cushion with Blogger incidentally.
Oh, and leading Paypal in the service category by 1%, as of 1pm PST on June 25
I have already voted, and urged my friends to vote. The funny thing is, LiveJournal is beating PayPal, a service that LiveJournal itself uses! How cool is that? By the way, have you actually seen what a webby award looks like? My friend won one last year and they are pretty cool :-)
We are actually thinking of sharing the award or at least giving credit where credit is due to paypal, since we do use them and they do help us out quite a bit.
Haven't seen a webby yet... at least, not up close. Hopefully that will change, however!
It would show a lot of class for LJ to acknowledge PayPal when you guys receive the award. PayPal is a great service, but LiveJournal is a better service and is one that I use everyday
I was a bit confused as to which one to pick but did my best. I wonder if the percent they give is the combined one of all these or just for the one that I picked.
Done and done. :-)
Glad to be of some help. :-)
This was raised elsewhere but I wanted to ask - have we established whether the People's Choice Winners will go on stage at the Webbies, or not? Is the stage at the Webbies only for the peer-voted awards?
The peoples choice winners are announced at the webbies, but they are actually accepted in the parts of the show that happen either before or after the main awards show. Not sure which... I heard that Sam Donaldson was going to present them.
Take a look at the webbies website, as it has a video of last years show. It will give you an idea perhaps how they'll do things this year.

Well I voted way back when.
Now it's just wait and see.
thanks... couldn't have happened without a lot of help from everyone.
You the boys.
You the men.
We are still in cha'ge.
