    Why are "Affiliate Manager" and "OPM" separate categories? This does not make any sense.

    An AM works for one program or one company with several programs. An OPM works for many programs from several companies. We have kept them separate.

    I was sort of hoping the "The Best in xxxx Awards" was a thing of the past, I find them to be nothing more then a popularity poll "who your friends are" or "Who is buying Ad space at ABW" and nothing to do about the end product/skills that they provide to Affiliates or AM as a whole.

    Just my option.........

    I agree Kevin and that is why I initiated it in the Inner Circle. For voting I intend to require that the member be registered prior to the polls. I looked back over the years and saw that Haiko threw out several elections where there was evidence of ballot stuffing. Also, I am requiring that nominations include a few sentences about why you pick who or what you did. Finally I am following through due to a request from iNet who wanted to see it continue. We can evaluate the experience after this years and decide if this needs to be revamped, morphed or something else.

    I appreciate you getting this started Greg and know you are busy. Can you come back and add a few sentences why you nominated who you did?

    I moved this to Midnight Cafe' so non-Inner Circle member know this is underway. When we start the polls (voting) it will be limited to members who joined by February 8th. That way the voting is not gamed.

    A bit over the top Mr. Sal but I think the moderator suggestion is a good one.

    I missed the cut off this time by an hour... Last year it was three days. Maybe I'll catch it my third year! Here's to hoping!

    BTW, if you guys send out newsletter about this, I'm not getting them. How do I check to make sure I'm on your mailing list?

    Thanks,

    Sarah

    Ran the nominations the 8th through the 13th and posted to Facebook as well. Sorry you missed Sarah, go ahead and post your nominations as single posts here and I will merge into the appropriate thread. It will be late tonight before I get the voting polls setup so if anyone has a last minute nomination you can do the same.

    4 days was way too short and it was over the weekend. And in the Inner Circle. Your most recent mod, before he was a mod, wouldn't have had access to the IC to nominate. Have some threads with only 2 or 3 replies, one by the same person.
