The Avi Choice Awards will be putting on one final show before they retire their legacy. I have voted for the awards many a time but never had I nominated until this round. It gave me a bit of a feeling of supremacy. My opinion was mattering, if to no one else than to the person who tallies the nominations! Do you want the same feeling of grandeur? Do you want your voice to matter in a voting process that you can do from the comfort of your own home? Go you want to say “Yes, I totally nominated them for that award.” when someone you nominates wins?? I know you do!! Let me walk you through the process and you can be on your way to feeling like someone special!*
Step 1: Cut a hole in the box……..WAIT, wait wait! Wrong steps! Let’s try this again!
Step 1: Go to the Avi Choice Awards website.
Step 3: Enter your avi’s name. You have to do this so they know who the important people are!
Step 4: Nominate your little heart out! You do not have to nominate for every award that is listed.
Boom! Easy as pie……Oh….not so easy? Well, let me just walk you right through how step 4 plays out. It might seem super easy to some of you, but to be completely honest, it took me a minute, and that is what inspired me to write this!
So, say you want to nominate, oh……I don’t know…..a blogger. You would find the “Favorite Second Life Blogger” entry, which happens to be listed under SLife, and type in the name of the blogger you wish to nominate. But what! There’s more! Then you need to go to my.secondlife.com and search that blogger, find them in the list and click them, then click Profile. You then copy and paste the web address of their information page in after the bloggers name and viola! Well, you finish doing the same for other categories you wish to nominate under, then click SUBMIT and then, VIOLA! You have just made your nomination known! You are kind of a big deal now. Just saying!
“But Tyche, what if I want to nominate a venue? Venues don’t have SL information pages like avis do!” Calm your pants! I’m getting there! So, to nominate a venue in a category of, say Favorite Live Music Venue, go to The Arts and find the “Favorite Live Music Venue” entry. You will need to enter 3 things on this line. 1. The name of the venue 2. The name of the venue owner. (If you do not know this you can usually find it by searching the venue and viewing the venues information or the venue’s group info. I find the group info to be more useful. The founder of the group is almost always the owner.) 3. The link to the owner’s information page from my.secondlife.com. BOOM! You are now a nominating pro! Run and tell your friends how amazing you are and let them know that they can be just as cool!
Do this before noon on October 12th and you, yes you, will have your voice heard!
