Voting Extended Until Wednesday Midnight PST

January 5th, 2009

We’re extending the Crunchies 2008 vote until this Wednesday, January 7th, Midnight PST.  The Crunchies are this friday, and tickets are still available, but are going fast.  So get your ticket, vote for your favorites, and we’ll see you on Friday night!

The cookie-checking code is slightly off here: I was able to cast one vote, but then I couldn’t cast another vote in any other category: it said that I had already voted in the previous 24 hours.

But the two companies were in entirely different categories, so it’s broken. I hope my first vote counted….

kate says:

I got the same message (You’ve already voted for someone for this category within the last 24 hours!). However, this was the first time I tried to vote in any category.

Henry Work says:

Travis: we’re not using cookies for verification, we use your IP address. Is is possible that someone else on your network has voted for the other categories?

Kate: Same question, is it possible someone else has voted already on your network? We track voting by IP.

Looking forward to the Crunchies Award Ceremony on Friday

1) Nominate your favorites

Nominate the companies and products you believe most deserve industry recognition for achievements made in the past year, 2008 from now through midnight, PST Wednesday, December 10. If you are a site, grab a badge to encourage your community to nominate you for a Crunchie.

2) Vote on finalists

The Crunchies Committee will choose five finalist companies for each award category. Finalist voting will run Monday, December 15 through Wednesday, January 7 midnight PST.

3) Join the ceremony!

The Awards Ceremony will take place at 7:30 pm, Friday, January 9 at the Herbst Theater in San Francisco. It's an elegant, old world theater with 900 seats that will help give the awards the air of importance we believe they deserve. General admission tickets will be released in December.

The reception will follow from 9 pm – midnight across the street in City Hall’s Rotunda. After-party co-host MySpace will be supplying a celebrity DJ. There will be an open bar, finger food, game room, and other fun surprises.
