Nominee Finalist Notifications are Underway!

AC FB logo alphaSince closing the nominations last Thursday, we’ve had a group of wonderful people processing the thousands of nominations we received. We received a little more than a thousand (unique) nominee forms and each form had up to 45 categories (with a nominee) on each of them. So, we’re busy, busy in the process to narrow down to the finalists. We began to notify nominee finalists, last night that they have been nominated. We’ve got a ways to go to finish our notifications, though and will be continuing that process over the next few days. If you have not received word of nomination, don’t be sad.. we’re not finished yet! Thank you to those who have already IM’d, sharing excitement and happiness with us. It always makes us smile to hear that. We totally understand the honor of just being nominated in the first place.

We will display a list of all nominees, nominee finalists and Avi Choice recipients on the website, sometime after the votes open (on the 20th), so that all can see who received the honor of being nominated, at all.. let alone make it to the final vote. We are constantly reminded of why our Second Life community is so wonderful and amazing and it’s an honor to be a platform for residents to show appreciation, even in this way of honoring and nominating favorites. We use the word, ‘favorite’, carefully because there are MANY and no one could ever, solidly, claim a ‘best.’ THANK YOU for your acceptance of our mission to show off the THOUSANDS of people who make SL GREAT!

We got to feel that sense of excitement even more when our own Roman Godde, Tadeu Gartner and Avi Choice, itself received nominations. YAY and THANK YOU! We, of course, decline to go further in the process because Avi Choice and it’s staff are not eligible nor are they permitted to nominate or vote. From the bottom of our hearts.. thank you. And even if we don’t vote, you can be sure we are absolutely CHEERING! We’re proud of you, Second Life! It’s a lot of work producing this Avi Choice opportunity, but we’re honored to do it.. the pleasure is ours!
