I mean, people could easily vote on deviantArt and you wouldn't know who they are since polls are answered anonymously (aren't they?). The same people could easily just pick up a ballot from those places you've mentioned and vote again.

I'm just concerned :p

Just wondering, how do you make sure that there are no double votes?

we honestly have no control over the votes.
We'll just leave it to the fans.

As stated in my other message:

and why is that a bad thing?

As long as they don't break the rules that we've set. Even if they voted lots of times for the nominees that they prefer, isn't that just a testament of how much they support the nominee?

The way I see it, that is a bad thing. The award descriptions sound impressive at first but if that's how the voting system works then no offense, honestly, getting those awards don't seem too impressive now. I'll just see the winners as someone who either have lots of online friends (or fake DA accounts) or took lots of ballots, than someone who have the best comics.

...and "Make sure you VOTE FOR ONE NOMINEE PER CATEGORY ONLY." Sorry, I just have to vote twice to see who's leading. I broke a rule already (btw, where are the rules?) and I'm sure a lot did just for curiosity's sake.

Anyways, that's all. I just think your voting system could've been better.

So the bottom line is that you encourage double or triple voting in these awards? And that the winners are not defined by the number of "people" who just vote once, but the number of "votes" regardless of whether the same person voted once or twice?

Just to chime in. The komikon award has been more of..., err actually it is a popularity contest. Now if some people would vote multiple times for their choice/choices that's their prerogative, we don't encourage it but we don't really hold it against anyone. Other nominees campaign for votes, others don't its not really fair but its up to them to do what ever they like. This whole awards thing is done for fun, something for readers and creators and their fans.
