It's been a year, hasn't it? I've taken a large break from the forum this year given all else, but as it is that time of year...let 's do this! Time to get yer Ya-Ya's out! Let's see if we can reward those AARs that are so very deserving.

Now thinking back will be difficult, but surely you can all remember the works that really made a difference as you read them. These writAARs spent much time creating and it is time to give them their credit. So we embark upon the 2020 version of this awAARd.

The goal is to reward every single category as possible from narrative to LP’s...charactAARs all the way to writAAR. I’ve made periodic queries throughout these last 3 years to see if changes are needed and thus far, only some few have come in. Below are 12 categories in which to vote and in each, you may vote for up to 6 AARs. No matter the category, every game is eligible and for writAAR and newcomAAR, you will be voting for a person rather than an AAR (though please feel free to list their further work(s) if so wished.)

Voting for this will be in this thread rather than private because I wish this to remain near the top of the general discussion area. Below I will include a blank ballot and please fill it in as you can over the next couple of months. The period of voting will be from now until February 1, 2021 and the eligible AARs from which to choose are any of those started, finished or worked upon from DECEMBER 1, 2019 through NOVEMBER 30, 2020. Whether ended, started or still in progress, all works within that timeline are fair game (Please be mindful of this when you fill out your ballot.)

As I did last year, I will weight the votes between what is picked for #1 in a category verses what is picked as #6. It is a small weight but has proved successful in the accounting. That will cause you to think as you vote and a small hardship so that we avoid ties and reward fully due to merit. There are a lot of great works and tastes may vary. I am always open to recommendations but this seems the fairest way to account for your votes (And please feel free to offer any and all suggestions about the process within this thread.)

After voting for two months (which is required as has been learned) I will tabulate all of your nods and present the winners. I will open separate threads for each winner so that you may offer them congratulations and discuss the work if you so wish.

I start the voting now to give us that time to gain a clear picture and knowing well that schedules for all are tight. Two months should prove the most dedicated of us will offer their voice (so please start considering it now rather than late January.) I give every voter all of December and January to get us the most votes as possible. A project like this does not work unless the members of this forum get involved. While I would not like to see any sort of campaigning, I do hope that you will link to this in your works so we might gain as many eyes as possible. The more votes that we have, the more accurate winners we will see. A fair result for the great works presented within this past year.

It is a large accounting project, but is highly desirable. I have not been so much active this year, but I love this place. No other allows the freedom to write like we have. All games, all genres, all writAARs...they all deserve some love! :)

So, let us vote AARland...put on your thinking caps and choose the best of the best for these past 12 months (or at the very least, your favorites over that time.) Your writAARs will thank you and so do I! Now...vote!

The Ballot – Below are the 12 categories we will be voting on. You may vote for any of the games within each category. You need not choose 6 slots for every one, but with so much great work done here, it can surely be accomplished. And please remember that these votes will be weighted. What you choose for #1 will gain a greater value in the tabulation than what you choose for #6 (I do so to avoid ties, mainly.) I would love to ask you to lock your vote in once you have given it (for my sanity in the tabulation), but if changes must be made, feel free. The only thing that I would ask is that you not look to the vote and try to “game it” in any way. A tall order here at this forum I know given what we do here, but please keep it honest as I know that you will do.

Just pick your favorites and in the end, we will have our winners for 2020. It was a (very) long year full of great work so put your memory hats on and get to it, AARland! :D

Awesome to see the interest already! Just don't forget your place holders. ;) And once more, please share this within your threads. The more views, the better the vote.

I'd also say that while I did not change the categories, if there are some you cannot find works for, then worry not (though please look.) I've especially left LP/Video in there again due to CKIII even though these type of AARs have not received much of a vote in the last couple of rounds. Wasn't going to, but they are there and if one wants to vote for them, why not? We aim to be inclusive as much as we might.

I look at these as a celebration of this place. All are invited! :)

I always thought Q4 was the year ender?

After a quick check of my inkwell I can confirm that I have at one point placed in a Q4 ACA, so presumably they do exist, or at least have done. Although my instinct would be to put them in the New Year.

I seem to remember they've been held in tandem before. But if people want less to vote on, i can wait until March to do q1 2021.

Idk. Maybe have a separate thread to discuss this one? AARland is pretty healthy this year so it could work, but might prove reductive? Or it might be a chance for works that don't stand a chance in the end of year awards to get some recognition? Arguments for both here i think.

Great to see your handle back on the boards, @coz1 we‘ve missed you! I’m listening to a history of England podcast at the moment and just got up to 1066 and discussion of the Atheling, Morcar, Edwin, the Godwins and the rest. Had me thinking about the Song of Wessex again. :)

Thanks for running this again and I will indeed vote IDC.

They have been held in tandem. It's just a trick of the calendar. No reason to wait. I say go for it when the time comes.

Actually yes, go for it. The voting period for the end of year awards are much, much longer and so is the aars allowed to be nominated (anything since the last ACA). So yes, Q4 focusing on the past quarter makes sense too.

Sorry about that just making sure.
