Races Of Interest

|

While the results in many categories now appear certain, there are still many that are too close to call. Here are a few of the too close to call categories:

Best Celebrity Blogger - Wil Wheaton vs. Gilbert Arenas. Agent Zero is closing quickly on Wheaton, the only question is whether he can pull off another buzzer beater.

Best Science Blog - Bad Astronomy Blog vs. Climate Audit. Billed (elsewhere) as a battle over global warming; believers vs. deniers.

Best Technology Blog - Gizmodo vs. Engadget. 40,000 votes between them, split nearly evenly.

Best Conservative Blog - Michelle Malkin vs. Ace of Spade HQ. A few hundred votes separate them.

Best Law Blog - Above the Law vs. The Volokh Conspiracy. A few hundred votes separate them as well.

Video of the Year - Hamm Nation DC Sopranos vs. Chocolate Rain. Very close between them. Note that you can watch all of the videos right on the voting page!

Of course you are encourgaged to vote in as many categories as you want; we just wanted to highlight a couple very close races where your votes in the final hours will determine the winners.

Thursday Notes

|

Given the enormous interest generated by The 2007 Weblog Awards it is perhaps no surprise that our system comes under heavy load at times. The good news is that the occasional service slow downs are (with the exception of Wednesday) very brief - usually 5 minutes or less. The database and web server are self correcting and will automatically restart themselves if error conditions exist.

With voting winding down we'd like to extend our thanks to all of the finalists for their participation and to readers from all over the world for embracing the competition and supporting their favorite blogs.

Special thanks to Sean Gleeson for the site design and Flash design and to Pete Holiday for last minute programming help the night before voting opened. Also I'd like to extend a very special thanks to the amazing team of volunteers who pored thought the thousands of nominations to help select the 490 finalists. Without their efforts none of this would be possible.

Throughout the day, and past the point when polls close I'll be validating the results. Where appropriate there will be adjustments to the displayed results with a note pointing to the reasons for the changes. We've only had a few isolated cases of excessive voting so far, so it's not been much of an issue to this point.

Wednesday Notes

|

Yes we're having server issues. Yes we're working on it. Check back in a few hours when load is down.

Update (6:30 p.m. EST): The issues have been identified and fixed. Things had gone very well until the moment I stepped onto a plane this morning. Load had not been a problem (we handled 275,000 visitors yesterday and half a million or more page views), so I had no more worry about things going horribly wrong today than I do on any other day during the voting. In a nutshell there was a perfect storm of small problems with no one baby sitting the server when they occurred. Of course getting hit by thousands of requests a minute never helps when attempting to diagnose and correct problem.

Load is still high, but the polls are functioning. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Tuesday Notes

|

We are announcing today that polls will close Thursday November 8, 2007 at 10:00 p.m. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is 5:00 p.m. (EST) and 2:00 p.m. (PST).

Since Friday approximately The Weblog Awards has had over 1.3 million page views and 615,000 visitors and that number keeps skyrocketing upward. Our Site Meter is wide open for readers to poke around in. If you want to see who is voting and where they're coming from there are lots of interesting stats there.

Yesterday we added poll embedding options for a majority of categories. Next year we plan to have a scoreboard widget available for sites to show a small running results listing of their favorite polls. We just ran out of time this year to get that built, and frankly it's a little too late to be of much value.

Finally, we get lots of questions and accusations about various sites cheating or encouraging cheating. We do investigate every complaint and take action where appropriate. There is a bit of a disconnect between our "one vote per day" rule and what is technically possible in any voting system. We are able to limit voters to one vote per day per computer. Historically we've not stressed out about this because, A) it's not a large issue, and B) trying to crackdown on that would disenfranchise large numbers of voters and violate the spirit of fun which is one of our guiding principles. If you want to vote on your home PC and your work PC we're not going to stop you. We've seen just about every trick in the book since 2003, and we know cheating when we see it. Pointing out that it is possible to vote once a day per PC in a blog comment isn't really on par with attempting to hack our polls, is it?

We concentrate on identifying and removing actual cheaters.

Weekend Notes

|

So much to cover...

First, as with every year we get reports of sporadic problems loading polls. There appears to be no discernible correlations among the reports. What we do know is that all major browsers show the polls just fine. If you don't see text for a particular poll it *could* be a situation where our server is near a database resource limit. None of the our technical folks have seen this, but it is a plausible explanation for some of the reported problems. The good news is that coming back to the site a little later will usually solve a problem like this.

Next we meed to clear-up a misconception a few e-mailers seem to have. Some people have e-mailed concerned that a particular blog is way ahead in a category and that it's ruining the integrity of the awards. Here's the thing; a this point The Weblog Awards really *belong* to the finalists. Our only job is to make sure things keep working, find and remove the votes of any cheaters, and to make sure everyone has an equal opportunity to participate. After giving voters 49 slates of 10 finalists that they could get excited about casting votes for I'm as much a spectator to the progress of the voting as anyone else.

This is a viral event, and sites that do a better job of turning out readers to vote tend to do better. We've seen all sorts of campaigning tactics over the years and based on what I've heard many of the same tactics are being employed again this year by various sites.

In regards to cheating, I've confirmed one minor instance and will be removing votes and posting notices in the forums. I'm sure I'll find a few more as the days go on, but overall things are going smoothly and cheating is nearly non-existent.

Finalist, if you notice any talk of cheating or speculation about how to cheat in comment threads at your site we'd appreciate if you would remove such comments and warn your readers about discussing such things. We encourage participation by everyone, but expect everyone to abide by our voting rules. Speculating about how to game the system only makes sites in which such comments appear seem to be suspect. We don't want that for you; we want everyone to have a good time and enjoy the experience of being a finalist.

To those visiting for the first time please explore all the categories and go read as many of the finalist blogs as you can. That's what The Weblog Awards is really about, it's not about who wins, it's about everyone who participates winning by gaining exposure.

Finally, I haven't tallied the number of votes cast yet, but my estimate is that it's somewhere in the 250,000 range. Pretty good for a weekend...

Friday Notes

|

I've already had a couple questions on this, so it's worth repeating. Our polls are designed to maximize participation for everyone. One of the ways we do this is to no repeatedly query the database. When you cast your vote it is recorded in the database, but your instance of the poll is not rebuilt which saves a database call. The system shows you the new total (by adding one to the totals it previously fetched) and the database has the new total, BUT If you refresh your browser it will appear as if your vote disappears.

Rest assured your vote is safely recorded and everyone else sees your vote. If you close your browser completely the next time you load the poll the totals displayed will include your vote.

On another note we'll be sticking with our normal policy of not altering the polls. Sites that do not wish to participate can simply ignore the competition; it will be over soon enough. Removing a site from a poll is a disservice to those who nominated and voted for it. We did honor requests from blog authors declining their nominations during the nomination period.

Lastly, imagine the entire internet linking to your site all at once... I ask you to imagine that just in case we have server issues today. We think we've got enough horsepower to make it through what is normally our busiest day. If for some reason you can get through try back a little later.

We Need Your Help!

We need your help in creating feed links for finalists!

The listing of finalists is here. See the forum for directions on how to create a formatted list. I'm working hard on producing the polls so voting can begin, so I can't do feed links until after that. Any help our reader community can give will help!

Voting should begin within the next 12 hours. In the meantime our poll demo has been loaded with real questions and now records votes.

Finalists Announced

| | Comments (41)

Here is a complete list of the finalists for The 2007 Weblog Awards. Finalists badges (hosted by Imageshack) will be available Thursday. Voting is scheduled to begin Thursday evening. Links are being added to this listing, it's just lower priority than getting the poll links all finished...

I'd like to thank my team of volunteers who helped look through the thousands and thousands of nominations to come up with, in my opinion, the best top to bottom slate of finalists we've ever had. Even the new categories feature strong slates. I'm really happy with the mix in the international categories and the topic area categories where we were able to get a good selection of sub-genres in a particular category. Thanks first and foremost goes to Weblog Award readers who did an excellent job nominating, but the work the my judging crew did was really outstanding thankless work. Cheers to them!

Note: Best Blog, Best Liberal Blog, and Best Conservative Blog originally had 12 entries each. We thought that our new polls would support more than 10 finalists, but we've had to revert to the 10 finalist limit. They six finalists removed were moved into their respective ecosystem categories as finalists.

Yesterday we published a partial list of finalists, knowing that there may be an error or two and with one lingering question that would affect the finalist slates. We thought we could expand a couple categories beyond 10 finalists (which turns out not to be possible) and published out lists knowing that we might have to change the slates if we couldn't go beyond ten finalists.

Well that has come to pass and we've made the planned changes. The following 5 sites will be finalists in their respective ecosystm categories. Tech Crunch was already a finalist in the Best Tech Blog category where it will remain.

Newshoggers
Kiko's House
The Moderate Voice
My Pet Jawa
Balloon Juice

Sorry about the confusion...

A Note To Nominees

| | Comments (5)

Every year this is the hardest post I have to write - the one where I explain why your nominated blog was not selected as a finalist. First, the odds are heavily stacked against you. This year we received nearly 4,000 nominations in 49 categories, of which no more than 500 will be selected as finalists.

Second, it's worth restating the guiding principles of of The Weblog Awards; ones we've used since the inception of The Weblog Awards in 2003:

1) Open and public nominations
2) Categories that allow blogs of similar readership levels to compete
3) Real time vote totals
4) Quick turnaround of the results
5) Fun

An operation of this magnitude will never be without its share of controversy or problems. There's one part of The Weblog Awards that will never get any easier - the finalist cut down. Explaining why many nominated blogs are not finalists is always the trickiest part of The Weblog Awards.

To maximize participation there will be as little overlap in the selection of finalists in the categories as possible. There are a couple notable exceptions to this edict [Note: It's a guideline, not an iron-clad rule], the Best Blog and Best Podcast categories. Finalists in those two categories my appear as finalists in other categories. Even with that general guideline there will be several thousands of nominated blogs that for one reason or another will not be finalists in any category.

Please understand that the constraints of the number of categories and the maximum number of finalists per category really ties our hands. The goal is to get the most representative slate of 10 finalists per category. We're under no illusion that (even with unlimited time) we could prune each category to a list of the 10 blogs that everyone would agree were the absolute best 10 blogs that category has to offer. We do what we can under incredible deadlines to pick the best slate possible. In the process I'm possitive many excellent blogs were not selected...

This year we added a capability for readers to add "me too" to nomination comments. The idea was to eliminate duplicate nominations. As we said in advance this was just another piece of information for the judges to look at. We knew that there may be sites that confused this with voting, but thought it was a valuable feature to add anyway.

If your blog was nominated, but is not selected as a finalist I want you to know how much I appreciate your participation in this years awards. With several thousand blogs nominated this kind of disappointment is an unfortunate consequence of the success of The Weblog Awards - one which will repeat every year. The prospect of anonymous and closed nomination, while it might lessen the disappointment of those not selected as finalists, is to my mind far less appealing than the open nomination process of The Weblog Awards. Prolonging or expanding the voting likewise would detract from the festivites.

I wish it could be another way, but unfortunately it cannot...

Quotes

I just found out that you can embed polls from the weblog awards on a homepage. Cool. Supporting us won’t get you a damn tote bag, but you will get regular beer blogging again. And we both know that you can’t get that on NPR." - Balloon Juice

"So I haven't been actively promoting my Weblog Award nomination. Sure, I mentioned it, and I put up a little button, but I haven't told you to vote, have I? I haven't told you to vote once every twenty-four hours, have I? I haven't told you to rise up, my minions, and smite the Internet with your collective force, have I? Have I? Well, now I have." - Looky, Daddy!
