So I have no authority to tell hundreds of voters that they're wrong.
And yes, this is the only official WCCA spot for the general public.
But remember, we're not talking about a generic "comic" category. We're talking about a category specifically for the use of animation. So how do you reward the use of Flash, then disqualify a comic because it uses Flash?
So it's a pure animation category then?
Because there are a lot of works that use Flash (and variants) as an interface or as a way to produce smaller file sizes that arent animations, Merlin Goodbrey's works for example. But they sure aint cartoons.

Bear in mind that none of this is disagreeing with you. What needs to be done is more public education. I really appreciate what you're doing. Not only are you asking people to think before they vote, but you're offering suggestions and encouraging people to look at other options. Please keep that up, not only here, but anywhere you see a WCCA discussion going on.
