This may be an obvious question, but how do you ensure that only people who are actually members of the forums are voting?

@llyarden Unfortunately, in this format we cannot ensure that, as we can't lock down the thread to be viewable by members only. The way to makeshift do that would have been to add a username prompt to the ballots, but it admittedly would have been a bit of a hassle to have to enter it for each and every individual category (esp for those voting on multiple mediums). I'm sorry for the inconvenience there, though, as we def would have liked to ensure that in an intuitive way. This is the first Ganza on the xenforo nuzforums, so I'll be looking into ways to possibly resolve that (as well as other hitches we've discovered in this iteration) for next year's.

This...might be a problem. For all I know, some random trolls could try to affect the vote.

Yeah, we're def gonna work on it for next year, dw. You do need a google acct at least, and we're watching the spreadsheet. Tbf, nothing in most past years prevented people from just making alts (or getting off-forums peeps to come in) for vote boosting, but there's never really been much of a tampering issue or whatever. We're not a big community, we don't exactly have Russia's interest rn lmao. If anything suspicious looks amiss in the results as it goes tho, rest assured we'll be on it.

Hey, thanks to everyone for voting this year! We’ve moved the voting thread into our backroom, and will be back on Friday the 21st with the results. And following shortly after that, we’ll be opening up our yearly reflection thread for community discussion. See you then!

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Hyper asexual Twitch Plays Pokemon lorewriter. Rather be a happy shill than an angry critic.
Well, I didn't place in either category I was nominated in (Best Worldbuilding in a Written Run and Best Battle in a Written Run), but given that most if not all of the competitors have been writing nuzlockes longer than I have, I suppose it's to be expected. I'm honored to have been nominated at all, and to have been a part of this Extravaganza!

A timid Pokémon typically found in groups. The only thing that motivates her more than companionship is food.
Congrats to not only the winners, but to the runner-ups and everyone else who got nominated! It was wonderful seeing so many different kinds of content being nominated, artists and authors and everyone in between supporting each other. Here’s to many more Extravaganzas!

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
Maybe this is a silly question, but where are the results posted, anyways?

EDIT: I found them and am now screaming. Seriously I explained what the extravaganza was to the people sitting with me, I’m absolutely blown away. Congrats to everyone who won this year!

A bizarre Pokémon who dislikes many social activities. She appears to have a penchant for peanut butter and learning foreign languages.
Congratulations to everyone who won, and even those who made it to the voting stage! It was a blast! :D

She tries her best, but doesn't succeed. She gets what she wants but not what she needs.
Congratulations to everyone who won! It was an honor to be nominated/honorable mentioned and I'm super thrilled for friends and strangers alike who are getting recognized for their outstanding work! <3

It possesses only one singular braincell, which it uses to bully fictional characters and write comics about it.
Congratulations to everyone for their achievements, and a big thank you to everyone involved!
It's great to see so much support in the community and so many new runs on the scene uwu
Here's to another great ganza! <3
