One More Day Of Delay - Nominations Open Nov. 3, 2009

We've solved nearly all of the techincal issues we were having with the comment system, save for one - the function that allows folks to issue a + vote to existing comments, which helps us eliminate duplicate comments. Basically there's a colliding AJAX function between the commenting code and the rating plugin. We've called on some really smart folks to help us try and patch a fix in either system, they just need a little time to examine the error.

This has always been a popular feature and we want to take another day to try to get it working. Everything else is set to roll. The nomination posts where you leave your nominating comments are all built and ready to publish.

We're launching nominations November 3, 2009 whether we get the + vote feature working or not, but we're going to do everything possible to get it working tomorrow.

Sorry about the delay, but the only way we can even attempt this work is without all the traffic of nomination comments.

In the meantime you can grab your Weblog Awards logos and read the nomination FAQ.


Could you block the evony ads? They're the only reason I don't want to encourage people to come here and vote for a blog.

Yes. As of right now they should not be appearing anymore. We're still tinkering with the ad server settings.

It seems to be better now

Just saw an Evony ad. Really annoying, but I still love your site regardless
