BitTalk.TV is hosting our own awards ceremony that will be broadcast on BitTalk.TV announcing the winners. We are in no rush to hurry up and finish and for this reason we will allow a full two weeks for entries.

Since other similar contests seemed more focused on giving away bitcoins to anyone willing to participate than actually doing a good job creating a fair contest, we will focus on rewarding individuals the proper way.

To combat cheating, add value to the votes, raise money for charity, and ensure that only serious bitcoiners are participating in the contest as contestants or voters, a microtransaction to a specified bitcoin address will be necessary.

To ensure a fair contest, no members  of BitTalk Media, including myself, or any individuals directly affiliated with them may claim candidacy. Any nominations for these individuals will be ignored.

All finalists of the BitTalk.TV Best of 2011 contest in each category will:

1) be published in the BitTalk.TV magazine's January issue;
2) be broadcast in a special presentation on BitTalk.tv;
3) receive a free year subscription to the BitTalk.TV magazine (est. $30 value)
4) receive a FREE casascius coin in the mail!

The categories will be soft-listed on the official forum thread. Feel free to petition for additional categories if you believe it is appropriate.

Good luck to everyone!



To vote for your favorite nominee:

1) Send 0.10BTC to 132kGxDjTyRjYRtsco9p99Y9uznSybskFg

2) Reply to this thread in the following format:

Cool.
But if different people will say that they sent fee from the same address - how will you resolve this ?
By asking them for a private key of this address ?

I think that you should create an address for each nominee and just count the received TXes.
This won't be fair since anyone can send unlimited number of TXes, but at least more sane than wrong fee collection.

hmmm... if two people say they sent from the same address, first one that posted this address gets the votes.

problem solved?

I was thinking the same thing. I hadn't seen any complications in doing it this way but if there are any that anyone spots, please do let me know. I want this to be flawless of course.

If that's what the community really wants, but something tells me that Best of 2011 is less about this forum and more about bitcoin. Who knows. I'm an open book.

I'm slightly confused withe the rules/voting aspect, quoted above. Would you be so kind, Matthew, as to elaborate a tad more? And why the last line in 6pt font?

Overall, I look forward to your awards show. Can you give me an idea when you're planning on broadcasting this episode? I want to make sure my A, E, F, R and T keys are cleaned and readied for action.  Grin

I think this whole concept needs a reboot. Since I didn't clear this with my colleagues and they seem to think there are both one too many awards efforts in the tiny community to matter, and that it doesn't actually support bitcoin or help bring anyone new into it, I think it might be better to reboot this as a "Most Promising for 2012" awards, or otherwise scrap it altogether.

I love sharing, I love giving away, and I love entertaining people. This entire thread is just the result of thinking we could do a better job but that might have been in vain since the interest from get involved in this kind of awards from most people might just not be there anymore.

Your guys' call. We've got plenty to do at BitTalk.TV to not worry about this, but if you think a "Most Promising of 2012" awards ceremony would be better, I'll reformat to that instead.

I'll wait 2 weeks and if nothing happens from this, we'll scrap it and try a different approach that people might be interested in more. Thanks guys!
