    !UPDATE!

    The votes are in and we've decided we've received enough to pick a winner (or two)! We're going to tally them and make a final decision ASAP.

    A huge CONGRADULATIONS for all the submissions! I think every coop received at least one vote which is pretty amazing!!

    Stay tuned!



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the first coop contest I chose the winners and it was too much work. For the second coop contest the BYC staff got together and picked the winners and it was a LOT of work. So for the current contest now we're putting it onto you guys! [​IMG]

    Help us by rating the coops and choosing a winner!!!

    Okay, here is what to do:

    1) Visit the coops below (If your coop is missing please reply ASAP with a link to your coop page!)
    2) Go to the following link to rate the coops: http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?key=paOtiu38UPmyA2-urRLX8aw
    3)
    Once we get "enough" ratings we'll tally up the votes and choose a winner!

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We've said this tons of times, but want to say it again: Even if you don't want your coop added to the contest, PLEASE create a BYC Page with pictures of your coop that we can add to the site!!!

    Also, for anybody clicking on the links below. If you see anything wrong (broken links, wrong name to wrong coop, etc.) please also reply and let us know.

    If you have any questions, just reply below. Thanks for your help!

    Hi, I have a suggestion for next year....How about BYC choose the finalists and list members can vote on the coop they like best? I took a look at how long this list is and had to decide I won't have time to look at everyone's. If the best coop is at the end of the list, it probably won't win because of fatigue on the part of the voter. (Can you tell I was a political science major in college???)

    Quote:Now you know how we feel!!!! We were getting a lot of people wanting the winners announced ASAP so we thought we'd solicit the help of everyone (and also show how difficult it is to go through the process of picking a winner). [​IMG]

    If we can find a way to pick a group of finalists easily then present it to the group, the we would definitely like to do that instead.

    Dang, Nifty!
    I didn't read the instructions well. I gave one coop in each category a 10. Not that I knew which category they were supposed to be in...

    I like the idea of the narrowing it down to 10 finalist, and then the members vote from that.

    Maybe next time we'll have some volunteers to pick out the best ones, but it really is a lot of work for just one or two people to go through all of them.

    Also, another reason to do it this way is to really get a good feeling for what coops the community likes best. If the people choosing the top 10 have a bias to large coops, then maybe none of the small ones make it into the top ten... stuff like that gets resolved by having as many people in the community as possible contribute!

    If you guys are overwhelmed by the number of coops and aren't up to rating all of them, please at least try to rate your top 5 favorites.
