Huh. So it's not okay to use specifics in the support of my position?

iago wrote:I groove on your standards for voting, Jason. They make sense to me... But I can't fairly call them "standards", having said that, because voters aren't being held to a standard, right? I confess I worry that this will render the process as something that looks pretty fickle, to the outsider.

I was not voted in and Joe was very professional about it and very receptive to my re-applying later on down the line. I was never told I was voted no because I didn't put out enough products in a certain speed, so I've personally not seen any sort of indication that such is the expectation.
Paradigm wrote:I default to yes, if I have no reason to vote one way or the other, I just vote yes. I happen to dislike the "indie" tag, because my company is a few guys busting ass to put out books. I dislike the "story game" tag, because story knows no size. Frankly, the only thing that self-identified "indie" press guys have in common is an anti-establishment attitude. And even that is inconsistent, because even though some dodge the FLGS (which, IMO is bad for the industry) they still show at the big consumer shows and submit books to the industry awards.
EDIT: Just adding that Evil Hat is not one of the companies that dodges the FLGS, my store carries them and I will continue to order their stuff as long as it stays good.
