Tuesday vote-mongering: a new chance

DMZ · November 18, 2008 at 12:08 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

Hey all, I know I’ve been pushing everyone to vote Dave Cameron, but it would make me feel great to see him win in recognition of all his long-time efforts here.

Now’s your chance: it looks like they’ve reset the IP locking, so if you were trying to vote from work, and someone beat you to it, you can go for it. And if you already voted… well, you have the opportunity to make your voice count twice. Try here.

Update: your mileage may vary

    I’ve posted the link around to as many Mariner message boards as I can find, including Myspace, Yahoo, MLB, ESPN and CNNSI. Unfortunately, we don’t have a one-stop million-hit-a-day site like Kos that will help. I will keep trying, as I truly believe David’s work and content far outshines what I’ve seen at Burnt Orange…which is not to demean what Mauro does, but let’s face it, targeting the content of USSM as almost being irrelevant because it’s not dealing with politics is pretty underhanded.

    I can say this, if *I* were on the judges panel that chose the finalist, I would be pretty upset at the way the winner is chosen.

    A quick response to the general freak out I accidentally caused: I read both blogs (I have a friend from college who plays for the Mariners). I am not saying anything negative about this site by saying that I think positively of what Mauro is trying to do on his. By observing that one site relates to events that change the lives of millions of people through the political process and the other site is about a great game, I am not saying that there is anything wrong with this site. The observation stands, but I love the Mariners. Maybe some people see politics as a game too, but I think the last 8 years should have dissuaded anyone from that opinion by now. I’m glad to hear that you guys are passionate about this site though. May the best site win.

    This scholarship isn’t based on the Theme or importance of the BLOG itself, but of the person nominated who writes for the blog. Under your basis, if a Blog is about World Hunger (a topic we can all agree is VERY important), but the Blogger just isn’t that great a writer, he should get your vote over pretty much ANYTHING.

    This scholarship isn’t about any SITE, robrtx…it’s about the writing.

    This site really has a lot of users, and should be willing to help out. I just wish I had thought of this sooner.
