Well, it got up there because it was nominated by people (think about it: because it is quite nice!). Well, I voted for it...

I'm more anxious to see who will get the best author award! I don't think it will be a big surprise, though (there is one very well known author that virtually every person knows about!--well, so I think).

I was stumped on the best author bit. Thats a tuff call. I voted Ahmed as first cuz I like his attitude better than some the other programmers I've spoken w/ (make that "tried" to speek w/). Plus he helped me learn ASM. Sorry, I havn't been around enough to see what author contributed the most to the ti-scene, so I had to base my vote on attitude and helpfullness. =)

There's nothing wrong with that - that's a fine way to choose your vote. Although we implied that "Best Programmer" is the one who contributed the most/best, a good programmer should also be commended for helping others.

I agree that VTI rocks. I've got the new upgrade for my 89 from TI. Does anyone know how soon this will work on VTI? Also, how are the games and shells coming along in conversion?
VTI - best utility
Rusty - best programmer

Why do we have to have an account at Dim-TI to vote if having an account at ticalc.org was sufficient enough to nominate (I was logged in to ticalc.org, but I couldn't submit my vote until I had created an account at calc.org)?

Also, what was the point of nominating programs under certain categories, such as "Best <insert game here> Level Set" if these categories were not included in the voting form?

Whew, I think the toughest category to vote under was "Best Author". I was torn between choosing...hell, every author!

I agree that the best author category was the hardest to vote on. Since most people don't have all the calculators, voting on programs was made easy with a reduction in choices. With authors, however, everyone has seen each of the authors' work (with the excaption of Bill Nagel who left before the 68k calcs came out). If I could get an account on Din-TI set up, however, I think I know who I would vote for.

Sorry, I guess I didn't realize that they condensed it to only the good authors, which sadly I am not on. It is a conspiracy!!!!!!

I think it's quite unnecessary to require you to vote for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for all categories. Some people don't know enough about a specific category to intelligently vote on it (myself with basic programs, for example). It ought to be possible to leave an entire section blank, at the very least.

Yes, I noticed that also and think it's unnecessary. It was hard for me to vote in a certain category since I hadn't used any of the programs in the said category! Oh, well...you hear of an "educated guess"; I made "educated votes". :-)

I am sorely dissapointed that there weren't enough nominations to put SOS up there. Sure, Ion is great because it can now support modules, and the games for it are slightly smaller (not to mention that 83+ users can now get alot of good original 83 games, and that the 83 users can play all the new 83+ games!). But SOS 2.0 was such a huge development, I would have liked to see it up there. Oh well, I guess Joe W. gets credit either way. . .but as I remember SOS 2.0 was a really big hit (even though it took ticalc.org about 2 weeks to figure out that it had been released :)

No, I'm just kidding, I love ticalc.org. TI-Files is pretty much off the map now, and I don't really like Dim-TI's new way of doing archives where you can't just browse through them. So this is my favorite website (and, contrary to popular belief, I think that they do post enough news items here.)
