Nominations for the
Best Microbadge Design of the Month
September 2016

(The Year of the Microbadge)


In order to have a microbadge design of the month poll, and due to the large number of microbadge designs that are approved every month, we have to trim the list to a manageable number. That's where YOU come in, by nominating your favorite microbadges of the month. The microbadges with the most nominations will be in the running for the award.

In a nutshell
Simply reply to this post stating which are, in your opinion, the 10 best microbadges approved during the past month. You can pick any badge listed below in the eligible badge list. Of the 10 microbadges that you nominate, up to a maximum of 2 can be your designs. You are more than welcome to tell everybody why you picked those 10 badges. You may nominate fewer than 10 badges if you choose.

When nominating, please show the badge using this code: [microbadge=id_number] (where id_number is the number shown before each badge). This makes it easier to collate.

Please do not nominate any badges simply because you like the microbadge's designer, you like the topic or game the badge depicts, or any such reason. Your nominations should be based solely on the badge's inherent qualities, not on anything else.

The top 5 to 12 microbadges with the most nominations will advance to the final round and be in the running for the best microbadge design of the month award. The winning badge's designer will get a shiny new mb!

You have just over a week, until 2016-10-18, near midday GMT, to post your nominations. (That's 12:00, i.e., in the middle of the day GMT, or early morning BGG time).

***

Please subscribe to New Microbadges Available for Purchase (and other Microbadge Events) Subscription Thread to know when new microbadge contests and events are created.

The list of eligible microbadges is in a post below.

Re: Nominations for Best Microbadge of the Month - Septermber 2016
The small print, now 33% smaller for the same price!

If you are a designer and need to pull a badge from this list for being derivative, please let me know ASAP.

Which badges should you nominate?
Well, that's entirely up to you. Base your decision on the badge's image and/or its mouseover, and decide which badges are worthy of being in the running for the badge of the month award!

Remember, do not nominate any badges simply because you like the microbadge's designer, you like the topic or game the badge depicts or any such reason. Your nominations should be based solely on the badge's inherent qualities, not on anything else.

Which badges can be nominated?
Any badge listed below, which includes the microbadges approved during the past month.
- you may only nominate up to 2 microbadges that you designed yourself;
- the badge must be buyable (i.e., award badges are not eligible);
- the badge must be a new design (i.e., unhidden badges are not eligible).
- the badge must not be a copy of something that already exists on the Intertubes. Note that resizing and retouching an image is enough to satisfy this requirement.
- the badge cannot be largely derivative of another badge. This includes color or year variants of an existing badge, or a badge that is an adjustment or edit of a badge that has already been through a nomination process.

What happens after the nominations end?
The top 5 to 12 (with 6 being the optimum number) nominated badges (the ones with the most votes) will be featured in a poll to determine the "Microbadge of the Month"! The poll will run roughly ten days and the winner will be announced at the end.

The designer of the winning badge will be awarded a special microbadge (up to and including the fourth win) and get any tips the contest receives. Furthermore, the winning badge will be in the running for microbadge of the year award!

In the event of any ties for the top place, the microbadge with the most nominations wins the poll. If that is still tied, there will be a smaller poll with just the tied badges. That poll will run for a week. If the top 5 to 12 nominated badges cannot be determined due to too many ties in the nominations, a small poll will be conducted here in order to see which badges advance to the final round.

Anything else?
Not really. Any situations that are not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Month committee (currently garion, wildthayne, Schwartzkopf and zorro_jv). The committee's word is final, but they're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.



E Please do not edit your nominations after posting them (you can edit them within a hour or so, but not much later than that, thanks).

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.
