    I think it would be cool if we had a LIKE button. I thanknu dislike button would cause drama, so like only would be cool. It would be kind of funny as well!
    But even with no dislike button, users would make drama out of people not liking their posts, interpreting silence as a dislike

    Tlfan I love that idea!!!

    There should be a popular vote/suggestion of all the possible contendants and then you guys choose nominees and then winners

    All other categories could possibly be put to popular vote? Unsure.
    Just let me decide as I'm our resident dictator
    BIG NO...lets not have the last countdown repeat

    I would hope some would be honest in their votes. The forum would be for people to give their opinion, discover different sounds, and even argue a bit, but I think an Award show would be fun for all of us.
    Message me if u want some tea that happened some time ago

    How about we have 7 general categories?

    Artist of the Year
    Female Artist of the Year
    Male Artist of the Year
    Group/Band of the Year
    Album of the Year
    Song of the Year
    New Artist of the Year

    Outstanding Albums for Rock, Country, Pop, Alternative, Rap, Foreign Language, R&B, and Soundtrack.

    Outstanding Music Video, Music Film, Live Performance.

    That's 18...

    I like the idea of the committee determining the nominees and the winners being announced by popular vote.

    In terms of a PM - the moderation team can create a separate, private forum for committee members only to discuss all of the nominations. I think a private forum would work better than a PM here.

    TIfan - I think you have far too many categories to retain interest if I'm being honest. Maybe we half what you have? I think we could utilise the homepage well here as well - using the reviews section to highlight a new album each week for e.g.

    Maybe let members with a specific amount of posts/years on the site choose the nominees.
    I've seen this done before and the host created a thread for people to sign up. Then a group PM was created for discussion with the host included. So the committee determines the nominees and then the general populace votes on them.

    Also, I am still here for the male artists countdown.

    ^^^ Forgot about that.

    I used the word "Performance" which represents vocals, musicianship, and/or lyrical content (no matter who write the song).

    Yeah if there's gonna be an awards show let's play fair this time, and have 2 hosts who are opposites that way we ensure they don't team up like for example, if you're gonna put biscuits as host, make me the second one so we are assured all the results are correct just in case u never known, 2 minds are better than one and even simple math can have miscalculations
    Nothing against stevyy doll and Colbie, but the execution of the awards was a mess thanks to having two hosts. Look how organised and efficient the popular countdown was in comparison.
    It was a bit messy coz Stevyy wouldnt read/awnser my pm's

    I am sure some will vote just because their fav is nominated, but there are many music lovers on here, and we might have many surprises. I've already sent Stevvy a pm, with a breakdown of categories.

    I think the cut off date should match Billboards Year End (Dec 1st-Nov 30st)
