Rocking the 2008 Best of Halo Awards Vote

2008 best of halo awards

After completing the nominations phase of the 2008 Best of Halo Awards (thank you to all 348 of you who participated in that arduous step), it’s officially time to move onto voting. Voting will remain open until January 7th at 11:59 pm PST. Here’s what’s up for grabs:

  • Bragging rights for an entire year (that’s 365 days people)
  • A mention on Bungie’s blog
  • A mystery box straight from Bungie headquarters (I don’t know what will be in the box, I only know they have committed to sending each of the winners something. It could be Luke’s toenail clippings. It could be Shishka’s belly button lint. It could be one square foot of air. Nobody will know until it arrives on their doorstep.)
  • My undying love, which actually goes to all the nominees just for doing what they do and doing it so extremely well

There will be something given away to one lucky voter as well. To be eligible for this unnamed prize, you must complete three steps:

  • Vote in all ten categories
  • Leave a comment saying as much on each individual category page
  • Leave a comment on this page saying you have completed both of the required steps

Ready to start voting? Hit the jump to rock the 2008 Best of Halo Awards vote!

Rather than having an overwhelmingly large list with all the categories on a single page, each individual category has its own page. It was organized this way for a variety of reasons. First, it makes it easier for nominees to show their moms exactly where they need to vote (because let’s face it, your mom isn’t going to vote in the Best Map category if you didn’t help make it). Second, it also allows voters to leave comments of support without getting cluttered and lost amongst the other categories nominees. Third, having the extra space left plenty of room for me to include a nice handy dandy link list should you desire to check out the specifics of each category. To vote, simply click the banner for a specific category to get taken directly to that page. To make your journey easier, when you get to your next destination a new banner will be awaiting you at the bottom of the page. That’s right, I’m always thinking of you. Kiss kiss! Now go vote already.

  71. Well, as you instructed, I have voted within each of the ten categories, and thrown in my two cents on each of them. I tried to be as descriptive as possible on each, but I’m afraid I was a bit vague on one or two of them. Meh, I don’t think it truly matters. Finally, I commented here, which was the final step. So… I guess I’m done now.

  116. I voted and commented in every single category.

    Also, I would like to thank you fr setting up this Award “Competition.” It really gets the community even more involved with projects mentioned in the categories, as well as inspires people to try to make their own projects. You really have a great, positive influence on the community (and yes, I am kissing ass a but here, get over it).

    Also, thanks should be given to all who took time out of their days to vote and comment on the nominees. None of this would have been possible without the people who voted.

    Once again, thank you all, and good luck to all the nominees!

    I have completed both objectives to get into the third step. I am pretty excited and hope my answer and votes satisfy whoever looks at them and decides who the lucky voter will be. I, CraziBouncer, believe am eligible for the lucky voter due to my elaborate and elongated answers/comments about the nominee i have voted for in each of the ten caterogories, I do hope you choose I. As for the others attempting to recieve this award, good luck and god speed. :) lol

    I voted in all 10 categories and tried to have some salient comment in support of my choices. It wasn’t easy. I hated having to choose one over the other in most of the topics. It’s kind of like wearing pink armor. Somebody, somewhere is going to grief you about your choice.
