Sure, it would benefit us, but that's not why we're excited about it. If all we wanted was more attention, we'd be begging you just as hard to help us crush Joystiq or Gamespot, or something. And, hey, winning in Games Related would certainly be great, but it wouldn't be as important as getting Gaming considered in the same regard as things like home improvement, gardening, cooking, and other "normal" hobbies. Honestly, I'd be pushing you to vote for ANY gaming site that was nominated in the Lifesytle category. It just so happens that it's us.larrykoubiak said:Call me paranoid or cynical, but i don't think a vote for the Escapist would "send a signal loud enough to be heard on every corner of the web that games, as a medium, have arrived."
It would rather mean The Escapist would get more attention, and therefore more revenue from ads or whatever. Now, that is of course not a bad thing for The Escapist, but the phrasing makes it look like we're doing ourselves a favor. No, we would be doing The Escapist a favor, there is no other political or social agenda that can be attached to the Webby Awards, and i don't like to be conned into taking part to something that doesn't concern me.
I nonetheless wish this website the best, may the extra revenue allow you to make more interesting content, i guess it would then benefit us too, should you take that route that is.
