Athena of the Year Voters Poll

Same deal, you can vote for more than on so we can get the categories for both in the Poll. If they win Athena of the Year, I'll go to the second place in the ROTY section to award that one.

Put my vote in. Voted for myself multiple times in this thread and the Clydesdale thread. Boy oh boy I better win. Otherwise I'll just proclaim myself the winner of the write in vote, Yeah me!

So what's your address again Tom so I can send in the Ballots <joking>?

bump...

If we're going to encourage more Athenas to participate in the forum, we need to have Athenas visible in the forum.

I voted for kitty. Many of her posts are of the "offering advice" style.

Hahahahaha!!! Hopefully we won't have a rush of Athena's withdrawing their names from the ballot. Tom can also lose my write in votes. I look terrible in a dress anyway, or so I've been told ;-).

Thank you for the vote -- but more than that, thank you for making this forum a place where I want to be. Over the past year, I've gotten encouragement, support, and answers to vexing questions. We have a place where pats on the back are freely shared -- along with the rare kick in the backside when needed.
