About Voting No Award

I've been asked once again to explain how No Award works in the Hugo Awards.

Voting/Rules Neepery HereCollapse )
About the No Award Showdown RuleCollapse )

Summary:
  1. If you dislike everything on the ballot equally, vote No Award 1 and leave the rest blank.

  2. If you like some and dislike everything else equally, rank your favorites in preference order, then No Award, then leave the rest blank.

  3. If you like some candidates, dislike the others, but want to influence the relative placement of the works you dislike, then mark the candidates you like, then No Award, then the ones you dislike.

I really hope this helps. I see so much nonsense posted about No Award and people trying to tease out some sort of Hidden Meaning from the rules, when in fact WSFS doesn't hide elephants in mouseholes.

If you still have questions, post them here and I'll try to answer them.
