Greetings Fellow FORVM Classical Numismatic Discussion Board Members,
Welcome to THE Final Polling for the 2008 Forvm Awards For Numismatic Excellence! We will be awarding a Gold Logo to the website that receives the most votes, Silver to the second most-voted, and Bronze to the site that comes in third in votes. If any sites tie in these top three tiers, they will both/all receive the relevant Logos.
We would like you to vote for three sites from the list of Finalists above in order to give the Silver and Bronze Awards as much backing as possible. However, you may vote for just one or two sites if that is what you really want to do. Please note that the board programming requires you to vote for all of your choices at the same time. If you make a mistake or you change your mind, you may click "Remove Vote" (which will erase all your votes in this particular poll) and resubmit your choices.
The Finalists are the eight sites that received the most submissions during the Nomination Process that closed a few days ago and those that tied with the eighth site on that list. We congratulate them for this and wish them the best of luck in polling. Regardless of the outcome, they are all treasures of the online numismatic community.
As for the rest of our Standard Award Recipients, your hard work and sharing of knowledge is appreciated all the same and not one bit less. This is why you received the original Award after our membership reviewed your sites in their own individual polls. Since a site can only win the Annual Gold Award twice, there exists a great chance that you may see your sites in future contests.
Thank You and Happy Holidays,
The Forvm Website Awards Nomination Committee
FYI: The "Total Votes" quoted by the board at the bottom of the Finalist choices (shown after you vote) denotes the number of individual voters, not the number of sites voted for.
