Quick question: why e-mail voting as opposed to forum posts? I'm guessing it's easier to tally votes via e-mail, but I appreciate the opportunity to discuss everyone's opinions, so perhaps we can get some forum discussion going too, either in this thread or a separate one (whatever makes sense).
I can certainly create a separate thread for GOTY discussions
I'll be honest - this is my first year running the GOTY awards so I guess I just wanted to give myself some room to breath. Being able to process the votes etc... in private will help with that and I was worried what might happen if the voting was out in the open. The thread could become confused if people posted multiple times or if spams got in. I'll be evaluating everything for next year's awards.
Also, I have a separate GOTY folder for all emails which makes storing the information handy
