    Well, I'd again like to re-phrase it as myself displaying forward thought and cognizance of the fact that I will probably be nominated for Most Serious again, and if I'm going to be nominated for something like that I'd prefer it be accurate. I think Deadpan more accurately describes me, "Serious" makes it sound as though I'm utterly without a sense of humour.

    Perceptive forethought.

    I understand that. Doesn't seem to hold water? The complaints did not stop when the change was made. Where we (the users) saw none of the drama caused by nominations by others, at least one incident happened because some of the people who nominated themselves complained that they were getting votes.

    I'm not sure I follow the reasoning if nothing changes.

    Especially not if the change makes the drama a public affair.

    I went back to check on this and found it. The initial comment seemed more in jest if anything, and then it ended up escalating from there as a couple people took it as a complaint and argued about that point. Other than that, which was handled relatively quickly, I do see your point. As I offered earlier:

    And that still holds true. If there is a popular demand for it and we do decide to revert back to general nominations, I do hold that it would be only fair to let people know before the poll that they were nominated and can opt out if they choose to.

    Covered with Best Profile (sig, avatars, about, etc.)

    Covered with Most Adorable.

    @Cookiie will sneak behind them both and steal the crown for herself.

    Are you open to doing a public poll on the subject, to learn where the demand lies?

    It only makes sense that they should be able to opt-out. Can't they opt out of any other categories?

    Yup, that's only fair to do. I'll make it in this forum tonight and it'll be open until suggestions close (Saturday night).

    Yeah, they can opt out of other categories, but they typically (outside of the Art & Hottest Male/Female categories) don't know they've been nominated until after the poll is up. If general nominations are done again this year, I'd be letting them know long beforehand so they're aware, and also so that people don't vote for someone only for them to get removed from the poll/their vote to be lost (assuming removing someone from the poll doesn't let you vote again).

    Cool.

    That makes sense. I've had the same problem with user-centric things I've hosted. Some people drop out at the last second...

    Don't make me fry you again

    Then let's stress that people can opt-out if they're uncomfortable, because I know a lot of people won't simply because they fear being judged or ridiculed for it. Gives 'em the impression that if they don't submit themselves to humiliation they'll just be humiliated anyway

    I'd really rather they remain self-nominated to stress that they're not meant to be taken seriously—anybody who legitimately wants to put a spotlight on someone just 'cause they dislike them really needs to take five and think about their life choices
