Voting for the ENnies begins July 24th and Close August 1 at http://www.ennie-awards.com/ and we need to reach as many people as possible.  We can't do this alone- we need your help.

I have been creating slogan images and will continue to make not only slogan "buttons" but images that you can use to help spread the word.  Find the images in the "Slogan-a-day" thread.  

What do you do?
Find an image you like, or just find your own way to tell people to vote for us.
--On message boards (on topic please!)
--On websites (like your own)
--In comments on other people's websites
--Print and hang in your FLGS

Post the link here, in this thread so we can see where the message is being spread

Include how many touchpoints the link will generate.  
--If on a message board, post the number of views the thread has (you can update it by editing your post)
--If on a website, guess at how many views the site will get

What you get:
The top 3 marketers will be rewarded!
1) They will be able to choose what we wear to the ENnies and what our acceptance speech will include.*
2) If we win, actual, real prizes will be sent (shipping locally only, we'll figure something out to our international friends)

*If we get significant amount of campaign help (roughly at least 10 people posting in at least 30 spots), the top 3 campaigners will select our ENnies outfits (1 of the following) and WILL be sent pictures proving the deed was done:

Clothing Choices include:
1. All wearing dresses (Josh and Zeke included)
2. An assortment of silly hats
3. Mexican Wrestling Masks
4. OPEN
5. OPEN

Acceptance Speech will include:
1. Thanking Jebus
2. Doing the entire speech in Iambic pentameter
3. Thanking Gleemax for sucking
4. OPEN
5. OPEN

(Each person who helps market by posting an image/post/etc somewhere can suggest an item to be added to the list.  We will only not include something if it isn't possible, but explain why)

So please help!  Start asap!  Spread the word far and wide!

This thread should only be for posting actual links to places where you are helping us spread the word.  In your post with a link you may make suggestions for category inclusions.

Post general questions about the ENnies or our nomination here:

The bit.ly links I have tweeted have 17 hits so far, too. I have 133 Twitter followers and have Retweeted at least twice. Hope it's helping!

I put in a plug over on Myth-Weavers, the Burning Wheel Forums, and the TPC forums

http://www.myth-weavers.com/showthread.php?p=2201615#post2201615:  111 views Big Grin  Woo!  Broke 100!
http://burningwheel.org/forum/showthread.php?p=79202#post79202:  91 views
http://www.forum.thepenguinconspiracy.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=135:  59 views
I also added a facebook post, for what it's worth... Rolls Eyes

I figure since I already made a suggestion in the other thread (a bit hastily), it would be wrong of me not to fulfill the qualifications for doing so.

My suggestion (reposted):  You should give your speech in sonnet format.

I've put it in my signature... on Gleemax, of all places. Big Grin So pretty much anyone who reads a post by me (and hasn't disabled signatures yadda yadda...) is going to be subject to it.
I don't really expect to win, but helping out can't hurt.

Most notably, I've just posted a thread that I hope will get at least some attantion. Link, if anyone cares. The plug is below the post, in the signature, so it's not really off-topic. Big Grin

I actually had an idea for a slogan, but copyright infringement would be a bitch.

It'd be House with that classic stare of his, and the subtitle: "Vote for Brilliant Gameologists or you die."

That is incredibly awesome!!  I had seen the IPR "ticket" but we weren't listed on it- which annoyed me a little bit.  We talk about indie games a LOT, so this is super super cool!
