Hey Wieners. As some of you may know, I'm in a local band called The Banana Convention. There is a local magazine that does an annual music awards ceremony. The time has come for the nomination process. In years past, the only way to nominate a band would be to pick up the magazine, fill out the nomination form writing in your picks, and mail them the form via snail-mail. This year they've gone online with it, so anybody anywhere can log on to their message board and give their nominations.
This is where you guys come in. We want to get as many nominations as possible, so I'm asking for anybody who has a few minutes of free time to go to The Review Magazine Message Board (http://review-mag.com/smf/index.php) and help us out. You will have to register a name and your e-mail address on the board, but that only takes a few minutes. Once you get your name registered, go to the board and nominate us.
Some of the categories already have us listed as options in the "Poll", and others you'll have to write us in. I've included all the categories we're looking to win this year below. There is also IP logging on the board, which means you can only vote for us once from your computer. If you try to stuff the ballot by voting more than once, your vote will be disqualified. So, please, keep this as legit as possible.
