On Awards

It’s award season again, in the furry fandom and the science fiction community, so it seems like a good time to post some thoughts I have been working on about the Ursa Major awards (furry fandom’s longest-running awards) and the yearly debate/attempt to institute an alternative. So the posts will be in four parts:

* What the Ursas do right

* What the Ursas do wrong

* The considerable obstacles to an alternative (this one is long and might end up being two posts)

* My own proposed solution

Basically these posts come from me having gone through these debates with different groups many many times over the past several years.

I’ll post the first one later today, and then one a (week)day for the rest of them, and I’ll link the entries back to this post once they go up.
