I`m lucky and grateful that I have two nominations this year.  :thumbsup:

But like everyone else with some of their work, I`m a bit disappointed that my best bit of work was never put forward.

How'd we ( and by we I mean 'they'  :thumbsup: ) miss that one ? There should be a holdover category or somat for something that good.

That's the point though... I've seen whifs and thought 'that deserves to be put into the sway thread' only to find it already has. So now I'm thinking if I like so must someone else and .... I don't check the Sway and low and behold it doesn't get included. Maybe we should just post the title and the link to the thread or, and I've seen this on other forums, have a 'Like' button that records your user name on the thread. Would work in the Group Builds as well.

It would seem that some flaws/lessons have been highlighted in this years whiffies, with probably the main one being what Bungle said in that everyone assumes a good model has already been nominated.

It takes me a good couple of weeks to go through the nominations list each year, so adding another day or so to delete duplications wouldn`t be a complete nightmare. I`d just be happy that the nomination was there.

The success of the whiffies is down to you lot, building stuff and then someone else ideally nominating it if they feel it is worthy. And when I say worthy, it does not have to be the best looking or best constructed model. I have voted in the past for the concept rather than the skill. That is basically what `what if` is all about. Stretching the bounds of your imagination to something your comfortable with.

I hope that the whiffies and nomination process continues and perhaps some of you will be a bit more diligent or fourth coming in nominating a great piece of work.  :thumbsup:

That is all.  ;)

Whole-heartedly second that. And it is not a shame to make a nomination - everything is subjective, just as the Jury's work. So it's better to have a big pot to chose from, also for a variety of styles and ideas.

Is there some way to have a link at the top of every page saying something along the lines of "LIKE IT? CLICK HERE TO NOMINATE IT FOR NEXT YEARS WHIFFIES".

Not sure how easy that is? And if I`m honest, in my experience, you could have a stunning naked lady jiggling her bits about whilst shouting loudly to `nominate this to the whiffies`....., and still people would miss it.
