Hello there, everyone. At the time of writing this it's Christmas Day for me, so I'd like to wish everyone a happy holiday season regardless of what you celebrate. In terms of this actual post though, I bring news to you about Casters' Picks. Some of you may have asked me prior to this post about where the Casters' Picks awards have vanished to for this season. I've said for some time now that we wanted to allow the community to be able to have a say this season as last season when I first came up with and suggested the idea to the Media Team it was admittedly only about 30 minutes before the planned cast for the end of the season to the point where a few award winners may have been questionable, and so I am proud to say that we now have the voting open to narrow down players in to a shortlist! We have a spreadsheet here for anyone who's interested in seeing the eligible players alongside their vote counts, but just for those who don't want to view that spreadsheet we also have a list of eligible players in the spoiler below.

From the votes here, we will pick the top few (number not finalised yet, likely top 5) and run down the nominations on a stream to select the actual winners based upon the shortlisted groups. We'd like to implement a few guidelines for voting, so here they are: - You may not vote for any more than 5 people per division. - You may not vote for yourself. - It would be advised to give reasoning where you feel the need, however it is not a requirement. - Your votes must be for people in the eligible lists or else they will not count. - The Media Team and/or Wiimmfi League Staff Team reserve the right to discount votes from people that they feel may not be seriously using the system, given that this community nomination is a luxury, not something that needs to happen. - Votes for people in the same clans as you will be monitored for any patterns, as will votes where it appears as if best friends are voting one another. If it appears as if any form of attempt to unfairly boost a player in to the shortlist is happening, again staff reserve the right to either revoke votes or check the reasonings. Votes are done simply by posting in this thread. From there, the list of vote counts will be updated as and when possible. The votes for the shortlist will end at 1pm EST, Saturday 31st December 2016. Please get your votes in prior to then, for the Media Team to then select the finalised winners on that weekend also. Thanks for reading, and get voting!
