1. Only Vote once
2. be realistic (no trolling)
3. only vote on this thread by listing the category and person you are voting for
4. only votes turned in by Dec 1st will count
5. Be Nice
6. only votes in the existing categories will count. Unless somebody makes an epic one then this rule could change...

And may I suggest that you organize the categories better?
As in all the "x post" awards grouped together, "x member" awards grouped together ect.
Also inculde categories such as "most informative post/thread", and "funniest thread/post".
