At the Judges' request the 13 blogs in the Tumeke top 20 as at 31 December 2009 that did not self-nominate are able to be nominated by the Judges as a wildcard finalist. Limit of one per Judge and totally at their discretion.

http://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/

http://www.thestandard.org.nz/ (submitted after entries had closed but here are their chosen links)

http://www.hot-topic.co.nz/ (submitted too late and corresponded directly with a Judge instead of the correct email- but here are the chosen links)

  1. Fantastic. At the very least I am in the top 32 of blogs in New Zealand.

    The 13 blogs that didn't enter should not be given a wild card. My reason for this as this put my blog in the top 45, which doesn't sound so good.

  2. The two bloggers currently active on Kiwipolitico did not nominate themselves. Would you be so kind as to confirm who actually made the nomination?

    Plus, adding "judges nominees" after the closing date for nominations appears to be playing veeeery loose with the already nebulous rules. That should have been mentioned up-front, as well as the fact that you did (apparently) accept nominations from third parties.

    Ozy

    They are not give an automatic wildcard as of right. Each Judge may pick only one and they will be transparent in the reason they have.

    Bloggers who sent in 4 links are at an advantage because the Judges wont have to troll back and read 2009 posts.

    You are just becoming a pain in Bomber's little toe.

    Once again we are not asking for your first born child. It's a friggin competition.

    Perhaps you can run the competition next year. Well perhaps not as you seem to be a humourless dithering unit of wonderment.

    Phil, you have such great branding on Kiwiblog as Phil U I thought you would have a better chance on winning if we kept Phil U as more people read you on Kiwiblog than whoar.co.nz
