Nominations Update - We're A Go For Tonight

After a full day of doing battle with Javascript, JQuery, and Apache, we've finally got things straightened out. For a large period of the day the site wouldn't accept comments from Firefox or Google Chrome (but worked with IE8), which obviously wasn't acceptable for our famous open nomination process. We've solved that issue, and the + ratings issue. Big thanks to Mark Carey and Bryne Reese for the help.

All this means we will open nominations later this evening.

There's still some minor housekeeping we're working on (such as the content of the site ads, the Technorati Authority boundaries, etc.), but as soon as that's finished nominations will open.


I've got a scrub of the creatives showing up on the ad banner on my to-do list as well. That won't delay things though...
