Vote. Actual discussion goes into the other thread. I made it multiple choice because there are some that aren't entirely exclusive, or in case you want to have a fallback option, but please don't vote for more than two.

Create two kind of awards. One for emulators overall and one for the ones released this year. got my vote.

As for the PCSX2 related ones, I really don't think we should remove something from a competition just because it is going to win, its like removing the lord of the rings return of the king form the oscars because the first 2 did so well, its like well we know your going ot win so we will give you a special award. My 2 cents.

Options 2 & 3 are feasable to me, but tbh i think PCSX2 shouldnt even be nominated this year. We always win by a landslide, we are seen as an all mighty got who will smite people down if they dont vote for us :p

But i dont think PCSX2 being in there is fair on the other emus.

At least your modest Ref, no one can deny you of that.

well, im all for fair competition, but whenever pcsx2 is mentioned, the competition never seems to be fair. Im not trying to blow my own trumpet here but weve had like a hattrick of wins by a fair margin.

2 and 3. 'features' like compatibilty and pcsx2's network are two things that deserve to be highlighted. we could also input options like "DS emulation development (mic support and ****)" to rivalize with pcsx2. NGemu seems to be divided between NDS and PS2 freaks. :)

Well, I chose Change the awards mechanics a little, emulators don't get nominated, their innovations get instead because it would clarify the idea. It's INNOVATION of the year, not "your favorite emulator that made the most progress". It should be for a single thing, an actual innovation. Hell, to have some actually INTERESTING competition, why not nominate PCSX2 multiple times? Surely they've had multiple innovations with that, right?

well... surely that would make things interesting but the people who are against PCSX2 being nominated at all would go berseker on us :p

Anyway only 9 voters so far... I guess we should let the poll run a day or two more before deciding anything.

There's something else to discuss concerning emus/innovations (check my posts at other thread for example).

Concerning *forum* awards, the fact to list emus into that seems kinda farfetched actually. *Emu/innovation* awards have a place in ngemu's frontpage, as a yearly resume of the whole 2007 actuality. The fact that the emus who gets the most support requests are the strongest 'candidates', based on hype, isn't totally stranger to the results one would expect.

Keeping the awards a fun event, should require that this kind of competing be considered differently at the very least. By making a category for "coder of the year (among our members, instead of 'emu of year')" for example, keeps it friendly, while avoiding the trap of splitting people over what emus to vote for.

I voted for the last option. I dont think its fair not to allow pcsx2 to be nominated but there will be a bias towards it. It also should not get an auto-pass. Therefore have 2 first places.
