If you're here then I hope that you know who I am, and what I have to offer. I'm listed on the ballot as Jeramy Ware, and I have served as a judge twice, in 2007 and 2009. This blog has served as a chronicle of my efforts, and does a better job of describing my judging style and the sorts of things I look for in a product far better than I could in this space, so I'll skipp reitterating all the stuff that can be found in my questionairre from the ENnies site.
Most importantly I believe that the judging process should:
- Be open and honest.
- Serve the needs of the community anf the publishers and fans that support it.
- Judge each product on its own merits, rather than against one another.
- Take into consideration the thoughts and preferences of others.
- Be receptive to questions and critisism.
- Be responsive to those who take their time to offer input.
I hope that in my terms I have met those goals, and I promise to continue to strive toward those ends should I be elected again.
Because I'm not above asking for help in my campaigning, a few testimonials from those who have followed my work:
You're exactly the sort of judge that keeps me excited about the Ennies. - Rob Donoghue
We need more hard working, open folks like you who understand the value of blogs/podcasts in the Ennies. - Dave Chalker
"Honesty and dedication to transparent processing are just two of the attributes that make (MotG) a great candidate for ENnie judge." - Jess Hartley
You gave really good feedback and updates throughout the Ennie nomination, which I really appreciated. - Sean Nittner
I felt your process, in addition to being open and honest, and revolved around quality, not just personal opinion. - Meg McG
Thank you for your time and your support.
