We have dead sites that keep winning because they add a new feature every 3 months.
We have retarded sites that get rewards just for entering.
And then you have sites like pkzone that use your ip address to do certain things (cough).
I think the competition should exist only when there is competiton.
There's not even enough for the ones that exist already.

If you're going to complain about new features added every month, how about you start suggesting stuff for sites to add? It's not like there's an infinite amount of possibilities... Or better yet, make it yourself.

Why should a rule be added for that? People put time and effort into their sites and if theirs are better than the rest, obviously they've put more time into them... It's ridiculous to limit what they can win because other people aren't willing to put effort into what they make. Or as much effort
Nice assumption. Although I am sure you are too thick to understand the concept that time doesn't equate sucess.
You have barely changed your site, but expect prizes?

However, I think there should be a separate category in the information websites. One for larger sites and one for smaller ones. I see a lot of nice informational websites, created by players, that would never win because they are smaller in scope than AO of PkZone or such sites. I think the all-encompassing websites should have one category, and smaller more focussed websites should have another category to compete in . . .
That was the biggest change I thought of last year when the winners were announced. I think AO and PKZone are both great and important websites, and should win awards, but that just doesnt give anyone else a chance.
Also, I think anyone who submits a website that MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CONTEST should get the vandy orb or whatever for entering. If you meet the requirements of the contest, you've put in some work at least . . . diverse pages, a certain number of them, blah blah blah. Rewarding that is a good tradition.
Also, any word on when the contest is yet?

I have changed it plenty of the last year, just not the appearance because why should I? It works fine the way it is atm. PKZone and Aodojo haven't changed their apperance either because the current layouts WORK. Same with MM's site, no appearance change in a long time because it's fine the way it is.
I have added many features, updated and changed a lot of information, added a lot of scripts and edited a lot on the backend. Just because YOU don't see it or use the site doesn't mean it isn't changed. And I would thank you to not take your personal disapproval with me into this, since biased opinions generally are worthless.
To Scrooge, a lot of contests DON'T work like that as well. There's my reason for not doing it your way.

What do I have to gain or lose from your site doing well?
Time doesn't equate sucess. Only on the elementary levels can you truly see how much time was put in.
This is what you want.
FREE PRIZES BECAUSE IM THE BEST.

From last year the changes that need to be made are in the judging catagories, I don't have my list still but as I recall a couple of them seemed to overlap a lot and some didn't really have much value like accuracy for example, I think almost all of them were accurate even if it was only in point of view...

Site with the most down time.
Site with the most 'wrong' information.
Best in ruining pk category.
Site with the most abuse of peoples ip address.
And 2nd place for the most immortal bashing. We have to give props to koc first though...

I dont propose that we not allow KOC to compeat I think that we should add a new catagory to the contest as well to allow the newer web sites to have a chance at really winning the contest. The older sites that have been around for a while compeat in a seperate catagory and the newer ones that have been around a year or less compeat in a seperate catagory to allow the newer sites a chance to win. maby have the same rewards for each catagory but each catagory is a seperate one.
