It’s almost that time of year again, some quick notes about this year’s voting:
- If you haven’t received last years coin, let me know, I haven’t heard from some people and I think there are a few others that contacted me that I need to send. Drop me an email at esiebert7625 at yahoo dot com.
- Thank you to this year’s sponsor VMTurbo that helps make all this possible, give them a big shout out for doing this.
- Last year I had excluded anyone that had not blogged in a year. This year there will be a 8 post minimum in 2015 to be eligible to be on the ballot, this will help weed out many of the non-active bloggers and give the bloggers that are active a better chance. Thank you to Andreas Lesslhumer for all his work counting blog posts.
- A new year brings a new coin design so every year is unique, I’ve found the coin company I use isn’t all that creative and basically just prints what you tell them to. Last year I hired a designer on fiverr to try and get a good design but I wasn’t too happy with their creativity either. If anyone has any ideas and suggestions for this year or wants to mock up a sketch please let me know. I’ll be using the same metals this year, shiny gold for top 10, antique silver for top 25 and antique copper for top 50. Last year I did a diamond edge on the coin this year I was thinking of doing an hour glass or pleated edge. You can see all the different coin options here. Here’s my rough mock-up so far:
