even eliminating that category.

Actually, Best Pro Artist would be eminently appropriate, and I think
the category could use some shaking up.

eliminate the category three years ago; two years ago this failed to be
ratified, but a committee was formed to try to fix the category; this
year the recommendations made by the committee were voted in as WSFS
constitutional ammendments (with a last minute amendment that also
separates podcasts from fanzines and also contains changes that might
disallow blogs from recieving fanzine hugos) (it's possible for next
years committee to ratify the overall ammendment while rejecting one or
both of these provisions, and it's to be hoped that the extra wording
that removes the "other media" provision for fanzines and adds a
requirement that they be periodicals will be removed prior to ratification.
I'm guessing this will be one of two big fights at next Worldcon (in
Chicago -- along with the question of whether the Best Graphic Novel
hugo is allowed to sunset (I'd rather not).
