I can't believe what I just did. I recently criticized the ENnies, and whether they were credible or not. There have been discussions by at least one past judge, and others about corruption and back room dealings. I'm of the mind that where there's smoke there's usually fire.
One of the judges commented on my recent post about the ENnies. He made some good points, and was polite. He even suggested I nominate a friend to be a judge. I gave it some thought, and decided one way to find out what really goes on is to get involved. So I went and filled out an application for myself. Now, I realize the chances of me getting elected are next to impossible, but I thought it was worth a shot. Like the title says, I feel like I've lost my marbles. I may not even make it on the ballot. I don't know if everyone who submits an application gets on the ballot or not. I guess I will find out soon enough.
I was completely honest on my application. I mentioned my blog, and that I have been critical of the ENnies. I've always felt that full disclosure, and honesty is important.
If you want this part of the gaming world to have a voice in the ENnies be sure and vote for me. Or you could go nominate yourself! Like I said the chances are I won't be a judge, but if I were "elected", I would take my duties seriously.
Of course this doesn't mean I'm giving up the idea of "the Zanies". I'm still working on the concept.
