2nd annual Golden Zune awards - *nominations closed*
« on: September 16, 2007, 04:51:31 PM »

We're now accepting nominations for our 2nd annual Golden Zune awards. This is an award that we started last year, to allow the public to nominate and recognize useful Zune websites. Categories are:

- Best Zune forum
- Best Zune blog
- Best technical Zune site
- Best international site (i.e. non-English language)
- Best site for Zune hacks and mods
- Best site for Zune humor



A lot has changed since we held the first Golden Zune awards last year. At that time, there were about fifty Zune sites. (There are now over 200, although only a couple of dozen are actively updated.)

Last year's winners? The categories were slightly different: Best Zune News site (Zunerama); Best Use of Gaudy Website Colors (ZunePatrol); Best Coverage of Zune Leaks (Engadget); Best Technical Zune Site (Zunerama); Best Zune Blog (Zunerama); Best Zune Forum (tie: ZuneScene and Zunerama).

Obviously we have a distinct home field advantage, but I hope we get a good representation of Zune sites nominated.

We'll accept nominations up until Monday September 24. After that, we'll open up voting for a one-week period. Nominate away!

- Best site for Zune hacks and mods: Huh   
- Best site for Zune humor: ZuneInfo (very slow updating on news ...thus not much info on the site) or ZuneScene.


And ZuneInsider as the best blog -- no f**** way !!! As I've stated before, it should be called ZuneOUTsider

Good idea, I will add a non-English-language category.

Can I just recommend that Zunerama sit this one out? There's a quite clear conflict of interest in nominating yourself for Greatest Human Being To Ever Walk The Earth, and it might be fun to see what *other* sites people are visiting (and we wouldn't have to stoop to a level none of us want to be at).

Just my $.02

Well, people obviously come to this site for a reason...  whether it be for the forum, the blog, the tech help, etc. etc.  Should it not be placed side by side with all the other Zune sites out there?

Zunerama needs to be in the running. It's a Zune site after all.

Never argue with a fool. People might not know the difference.

I love Zunerama too, and yes, the reason I come to this site is the quality reporting and discussions, but this seems akin to a poll on the best mp3 player. Most people (with a few exceptions) who come to this site own Zunes and are probably more likely to select the Zune.

"placing it side by side" would be to have ZuneInsider or some other tech blog hold the vote. I like the idea of promoting the lesser-known sites, but what's the fun in awarding yourself?

Want more proof? Just look at last year's winner in 3 (and a half) categories...  Roll Eyes

I agree, we have a home-field advantage in hosting this award. The idea to recognize Zune sites out there was something we initiated last year, so it was natural to host it here, but I would welcome another "neutral" site hosting it in future years.

Thanks for your feedback!
