  1. I do understand the larger number of entries does make harder to look thru so many entries and pick your top 5 choices. Bill and I will discuss changes for next year and take in all the feedback, but not looking to open up voting to be like the CGC budget voting. We want to keep selections limited but will look into ways to better narrow down selections. Doing the 5 star system just opens up more complications.
  2. No Bill owns it and I am just the manager. I am conveying Bill's wishes. Best of started to share what people have posted in the CAF over the year. It has grown quite a bit especially this year. We try and keep it simple and categorize art as best as we can. If values are added into it then policing it just becomes a headache. And very hard to know if a piece really belongs in a value category. Collectors read too much into Best of on CAF, it is supposed to be sharing your recent acquisitions and not a contest. I post the stuff I really liked that I got the last year. So what if I post a cover I didn't pay alot for and someone else posts one that cost 5x that. Doesn't mean its a cover I would want in my collection. When I vote this week in the Best of I choose what I would want to own myself. Which is usually alot different than other collectors. Just enjoy the Best of and don't worry about what your fellow collector has.

  4. You are confusing totally separate things Best of 2019 is a Comicartfans/Lowry ONLY and Best of 2019: Budget Edition was started by BCarter here in CGC. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other.
  5. Best of will never use value as a category. Too tough to vertify.
  6. When art is framed it would be pressed up against the glass. Left over time the media used to create it , pencil, ink, paints could adhere and bond to the glass. Removing it could damage the artwork. With mylar skeeves the pressure isnt as strong as against glass. Plus with mylar artwork would move around alot and maybe ever be removed from the mylar
  7. We have never done that. We do not want to influence the voters. All will have to wait until after the polls close. By the way the number of views is not how many viewed it when entries were being accepted for the Best of 2019 entry. View count combines the views during 2019 in the owners CAF and in Best of. Some might have been posted in December and other in January. So views do not alway show how popular a piece it. Vote on what you like not on what is popular.
  8. We did really great, 1084 entries which is double what we normally get in past Best of. Thanks for all who entered.
  9. Here are the instructions: 1) Goto https://www.comicartfans.com/Login.asp 2) Login in (You MUST be registered in 2019 to vote) 3) Goto https://www.comicartfans.com/bestofyr.asp 4) Select from one of the Best of 2019 categories: Published/Unpublished: Covers Published: Splash Pages, Pinups Published: Interior Panel Pages Published: Strip Art Published/Unpublished: Commissions Unpublished: Sketch Covers/Convention Sketches Unpublished/Published: Other 5) Look through the entries for that category and pick up to 5 (yes 5 votes per category) 6) At the top of each category is 5 pulldown menus showing all the pieces of art from the Category you are in. Be aware of the instructions on the page. You will only be able to vote ONE time. If you only pick two pieces and leave the rest blank you will not be able to come back and pick any more. 7) Once you have selected all of your choices, click on "Cast My Vote" 8) After you vote, click the 'Best of' link to return to the Category listing. Once you vote, the pulldowns on the Category page to vote will no longer be there. Please don't ask us to vote again or change your votes. It is as simple as that. No one can vote again for that category since the link wont appear. We are tracking the UserID of the person voting so they can never vote again for a Category. 9) Go onto the next category. Repeat steps 6-8 for the other 6 categories. Voting starts Monday, Today Voting end Sunday, January 19th at 11:59 PM EST Email me or PM with any questions or problems. A big thanks goes out to Bill and his team for getting this together.
  10. Just a few more hours to get your selection in for the Best acquisitions of 2019. So hurry up and enter. Best of 2019 has doubled the average of entries we have seen over the years in past "Best of"
  11. If you posted in CAF on January you will NOT be allowed to post in Best of this year. It uses the same mechanism and Featured Gallery. You select a piece posted during 2019 and it will appear in the Best of 2019.
  12. Less than two more days to decide your Top 5 and enter them in the Best of 2019. Entries will be excepted until und of day tomorrow. Voting will start on Monday. Instructions will be posted.
