Now that people have finished their cookie cleaning/vote/repeat exercise on the Sonic & Shadow Site Awards (yes, it ended last month, but I only just found out… see previous comments on S&SSA) we can start thinking about more important things.
Yes, the SWA are here! The Sonic Wrecks Awards, the dreaded “completely irreverent as opposed to the Sonic Site Awards, second most important Sonic community Awards” are here again and the nominations (i.e phase one) has commenced
Yes you can now submit nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. These can be for any site/individual (fitting the guidelines, obviously) under the following Awards:
