Come on in for this sexily-numbered Next of Ken, where the 2012 F:AT Reader's Choice nominations are in, and voting begins!  I've got all the gory details inside.  Also, a review of the most excellent Core Words: Galactic Orders.  Join us, won't you? 


FAT Readers Choice Awards

 

The nominations are in, and when the smoke cleared and the votes were tallied, we now have YOUR Final Five in each category! And unlike Battlestar Galactica, THESE Final Five weren't drawn randomly out of a hat!

(Wow, how's *that* for a timely joke, huh?)

Here's how it's going to work. At this point, one of the five in each category will win. You can vote one of four ways--by sending me a PM through the site with your votes, post them below in the comments section, by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I'll also start a thread in the forums, and you can vote there as well.

The rules are simple--one vote per category, one set of votes per user. As we've done in years past, feel free to add your quotes, your rationale, your voice to your votes, to sway other would-be voters, or to get your name in lights when I do the results column. The user quotes have been a favorite for many readers, so let's make this year no different! Votes will be accepted starting immediately and running through next Monday, February 25th, 2013.

So here we are...your top nominations in each category, in random order, were as follows:

Again, votes will be accepted starting immediately and running through next Monday, February 25th, 2013.


 Don't forget--GET YOUR VOTES IN!! If you have any questions about voting, or need help, don't hesitate to contact me. I want as many voters to be heard as possible, and if I can help you participate, then that's what I'm going to do.

So until people learn that crime doesn't pay, I'll see ya in seven.  RIP, Leslie.
