But that has nothing to do with the amazing organization and hard work put into this year's DTA!

I guess I'm just getting old and grumpy and out of touch with the keyboard community.

1. You must have a minimum of 100 post karma on reddit to win a prize.
2. We'll select a random voter from the awards.

I have an honest question. Berserkfan used to call DT "DeskAuthority" and DA a LOT too. I just thought he was being an obvious troll. Do people on GH just happen to mistake the name a lot?!
I do agree that "opening the community" might be a great goal (although there are reasons why different places exist).
Instead, they can win a prize, and a tantalizing one, for just voting in a contest, und unsurprisingly they vote for what they know best.
What do you think how many would have participated without the prospect of winning such a prize?
And how many do you think will at all visit DT again after the DTAs?
