|Jan-05-19|| ||OhioChessFan: For player of the year, I nominate Daniel Freeman:|
|Jan-05-19|| ||Annie K.: Use the voting page?|
|Jan-05-19|| ||OhioChessFan: It's not operational.|
|Jan-05-19|| ||OhioChessFan: Okay, it's working. You forget how to do stuff after a year away.|
|Jan-05-19|| ||OhioChessFan: Caissars Voting Page|
|Jan-05-19|| ||Diademas: Just to honour an earlier obligation - I'm nominating User: Annie K. In all categories!|
|Jan-05-19|| ||Annie K.: LOL, no, please don't.. :D|
|Jan-06-19|| ||Saniyat24: Game of the year...Peter Leko vs Maxim Vachier-Lagrave, Chess Olympiad (2018)/ Sergey Karjakin vs Samuel Sevian, Isle Of Man Masters (2018).|
|Jan-06-19|| ||Diademas: <Annie K.: LOL, no, please don't.. :D>|
Ok. I'll limit my nominations to <Most Helpful> and <Most Constructive>
|Jan-09-19|| ||offramp: I think the Caissars should be renamed <The Daniels> and individual awards called <Dannys>.|
|Jan-09-19|| ||Diademas: Me not know.
There may be some kind of honorable mention for someone carrying the torch from Daniel, but in honor of him I think this should be a living and loving environment, not a mausoleum.
|Jan-10-19|| ||SugarDom: The choices look like trolling.|
|Jan-10-19|| ||offramp: <SugarDom: The choices look like trolling.>|
Some do. Those votes for Chris Owen don't make much sense. He might win, though.
|Jan-11-19|| ||SkySports: It seems that at the moment there is a single candidate for the best post (pdxjjb comment on one of the Stockfish-Alphazero games). I wonder if everyone voted for it or if only a user has expressed his/her preference so far...|
|Jan-14-19|| ||OhioChessFan: Rather sluggish voting. The only person who ever really cared about these was <technical draw> who'd beg for votes.|
|Jan-15-19|| ||offramp: Is there a closing date, or like the Holiday Present Hunt will it drag on until Easter?|
|Jan-15-19|| ||Penguincw: < offramp: Is there a closing date, or like the Holiday Present Hunt will it drag on until Easter? >|
< "From Saturday January 5th to Saturday January 19th we will be collecting votes for the 2018 Chessgames Caissars" >
|Jan-15-19|| ||WannaBe: <offramp> Winners will be announced on July 4th. |
|Jan-16-19|| ||starry2013: Ding had the top performance rating last year.|
|Jan-17-19|| ||jith1207: I don't know why I have been nominated in one of the categories. Description says that's who contributes the most. Considering my nomination and the number of categories where Chris Owen is nominated, it sounds like more care should be given to honor the enormous number of esteemed contributors of this site, who are rather much under appreciated IMHO. Also, the number of votes tallied seems to be very low, considering the number of regularly active members here. This should be the moment of honor for those members who truly have dedicated their time for this site, even if it means to have 10 nominations per category. And, I believe a note for voting page should appear in top of every page just as it is for the holiday hunt.|
