Clive Staples Award Update

I had forgotten that PollDaddy not only creates polls but it allows for surveys as well. I think the survey might answer a lot of the concerns voiced in our last discussion.

I’ve made a practice survey for those interested. I’d love to have feedback on things like requiring a name and email address as well as adding second and third choices, so if you have a minute, would you mind taking this non-survey survey?

BTW, I was thinking the second and third choices could either be weighted, or they could factor in if there is no clear winner.

I’m also thinking we should have a first round and a final round, with just the top three finalists on that last survey.

What else should be included?

Do you think the survey will eliminate some of the concerns about cheating?

So here it is: The Practice Readers Choice Survey for the 2009 Clive Staples Award for Christian Speculative Fiction.

  1. I’d say it looks good! As far as the e-mail address, one thing I’ve seen before is a little note that states the e-mail address won’t be sold or shared, or something along those lines. If you think requiring an e-mail address would scare away potential voters then maybe that route could be taken. You’re probably already aware of it, but I thought I’d mention it anyway, just in case 🙂


  2. Oh, good point, Jacob. And the survey form allows for such a note to be added. Thanks for the suggestion.
