    So many choices... I'm going to have a hard time choosing which one to vote for. >.<

    EDIT: Well, it was a tough call, but in the end I voted for Mini-Bot's Comic Fluff.

    Don't mean to nitpick but that sample Out of the Badlands strip is from this year not last year. Also why does WaP get two long strip samples? I mean WaP is an awesome strip but we shoudln't play favorites here...

    Someone nominated my comic? Thanks. But for this round, I'm giving it to Polenicus.

    I think the reason behind two strip samples from Warring at Play was because two different people nominated it, both of them submitting two different strips from the comic.



    Also, I seriously wish that people would read and follow the rules. I mean, c'mon people this is the 2010 Funnies Awards. All comic material has to be from 2010; any comic material starting in 2011 will have to wait until next year -- which is when we will do the 2011 Funnies Awards -- to be nominated.

    Ah, okay. Sorry, didn't mean any disrespect. I think some of those sample strips should be truncated a bit though. All those long strip samples make for a huge load time. :(

    The Out of the Dead Land is also from 2011.

    I'd suggest redoing this poll and restart voting to rectify the situation. If we can do it for too few entries after voting is completed, we should be able to do this now.

    And thanks for whoever nominated me. I posted so little last year, it's wonderful peeps still remember my comic

    Some comics take a looonng time for all the serious stuff in a plot thread to be realized. That battle of Pol's, for instance, it's all from December if I'm not mistaken & is only a fraction of it... & the conversation & discovery of Barricade from earlier in the comic would have less impact & feel less serious if too much is cut out...

    I understand the load time... It lags even my dual core enough that IE had to reboot to open it all... But there are some parts that probably can't be trumcated in a fair manner, as important substance or emotion would be lost.

    Something probably does need to be done about the load time, though, as even posting this response reloaded most/ all of the page & crashed IE again. It'd be a lot of work, but for a redo, if all the pics are from a single source (like all saved to the same Photobucket account, for instance), that could possibly reduce the lag some... Easiest thing would probably be to give the nominees the password to the same photobucket account to let them upload their nominated panels (changing the password afterwards)... Just a thoght, but that's the best I can come up with w/o losing the substance of some of the nominated updates.

    (since only the previous 10 posts are loaded, this post solved that "lag to post" problem)

    Yeah, the load time is definitely there. :D 

    I tried to be a little selective, but it was tough. On my own nominations, I generally did one of three things:

    1 - posted an entire strip, for a single-image comic (no easy way around that)

    2 - selected a semi-detached run of panels...something that could work as a partial standalone, without seeming too truncated

    3 - OH CRAP IT'S LATE *cram-a-lam* *send*

    Yeah, that last one happened a little more than I would have liked it to. :D

    It's okay. You were only expressing something that was a concern to you.

    I agree that it's taking forever to load all these images. I literally have to wait until they're done loading just in order to read everyone's responses, because when I try to scroll down to read everyone's responses it just keeps scrolling up as the images continue to load... and, I must admit, it does annoy me tremendously.

    Gee, looks like WaP and Deadlands are ahead by a long shot neck and neck too. :D

    Don't have much longer before the poll ends, but it sure looks like Out of the Dead Land will be winning this one with Warring At Play being a close second.

    Actually, I'm confident BRT will steamroll to victory in an eleventh-hour rally.

    It will be the most dramatic thing ever. :)
