ENnies - Breaking Their Own Rules When it Comes to Judges (Disregard - I Can't do Basic Math)

edit: This is what happens when you are your own editor - 2016 to 2018 is 2 years? right? wrong, as we are only in 2017 - Yes, three of the four perennial judges are NOT running this year - I guess they decided to get a head start on the impending new rules THAT ARE NOT YET IN EFFECT. Kurt is within the rules to run this year - but not next. The three not running this year CAN run next.

So, read this post as an example of what happens when I do fuck up - I correct, retract but I do not delete. Enjoy my embarrassment. It is well deserved - Tenkar

Look at the highlighted part of the rules to apply to nominate yourself to be an ENnies judge:

So, you can't be a judge if you've been a judge for the last two years. Simple enough, right?

I guess two consecutive years is no good, but SIX consecutive years is just peachy! Please tell me how both the applicant (Kurt Weigel) and the ENnies "powers that be" just overlooked this.

Its all on the level kids. Its all on the level.


  1. Simple. He's served for six years, three times the allowed amount, meaning he's acquired three times as much power as anyone else. You would have to challenge him to single combat to dethrone him and nobody has that kind of sway.

    Truly who will save us?

  3. "Effective August 2016"

    So, 2016 is year one of the new requirements, 2017 is the second. He is eligible to run. If elected he cannot run in 2018. This is in keeping with the rules.

  4. Major kudos for admitting your mistake and leaving it up.

  5. Glad it was on the up and up, I'm no fan of EnWorld, but Kurt is pretty awesome.

  6. We all make mistakes :) I'm running for the first time actually. It will be interesting to see what happens!

  7. I'm not sure what exactly your problem with Kurt Weigel is, the man comes through as all-around awesome.
