1211Zine Poll 2003 form
- Oct 3, 2003Hi,
May I just interrupt this fascinating discussion about badly written
orders to encourage the diminishing band of zine editors to download
the Zine Poll voting form and distribute it with their zines, please?
I've even done it in RTF to placate the Mac users.
As soon as I "get my PC sorted out at home" [(c) John Harrington,
1997] I'll do a PDF version too.
Some of you may have already received voting forms via For Whom The
Die Rolls and this form is much the same but with slightly different
wording regarding eligility of electronic zines, which I might as
well expand upon here.
Last year there was confusion about the Web Site poll, with some
people voting for the likes of Serendipity, The Blue Nose Special and
Devolution in the Zine Poll and some voting for them in the Web Site
poll. It's difficult to come up with a hard and fast rule to
differentiate between e-zines and web sites but in essence if the
zine can be sent via e-mail or downloaded from a web site then it is
eligible for the Zine Poll. If it can't then it should be voted for
in the Web Site poll.
As mentioned above, Serendipity, TBNS and Devolution are all
classified as zines this year, as is my own A League Of Our Own.
There may be others. There's still at least 2 months of the year left
so there is plenty of time for Stephen Agar to fold and start up 4 or
5 zines and if they are available for download from
www.WWIreference.co.uk or similar then Steve's zine will also be
eligible for inclusion if he bangs out the requisite 4 issues in
2003, even if he does not run any games.
Likewise, Outbreak of Heresy will also be eligible if it has
published 4 times this year; perhaps Steve & Nick would like to
confirm whether any of their organs (fnrr!) have seen the light of
day 4 times this year?
The main change from last year is that editors are not allowed to
vote for their own zines. Sub-editors may vote for the zine in which
their subzine is hosted.
May I finally remind you that nominations for the Les Pimley award?
P.S. Electronic votes to zinepoll@..., please. The old
fiendishgames.demon.co.uk has finally bitten the dust.
