Hello all. As you may have noticed we've announced the nominations for the 2012 PC Advisor Awards. And, as in previous years, we'd like to know what you think, via the Reader Awards. To make up for the two or three minutes it will take you to let us know your Best PC and laptop brands, your favourite online retailers and your gadget of the year, by entering your votes at the PC Advisor Awards pages (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/awards) you'll automatically be entered into a prize draw, from which you can win £250 worth of Amazon vouchers.
Even if you don't want to vote (and why wouldn't you?), I'd love you for to let us know what you think about our editorial awards, the individcual nominees and categories, and the whole awards program, in this thread. Let us know what we've missed or products you particularly liked. Don't be shy!

What a terrible poll imho. Lists not in alphabetical order (nearly missed Acer) and a Vote Now on each category necessitating a screen refresh, "Other" categories on some but not on other lists and . . .
The link (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/awards) takes you to a badly worded / constructed page, quote : (Headline)
"PC Advisor Awards 2012 Have your say: vote now!
As we head toward a new year, we are proud to present our . . . etc"
which gives a list of items at the bottom, so you click one thinking you're selecting it for a vote and it goes to the reviews pages
Oh, I see I should have clicked on Have your Say Vote Now! which takes you to the selection and the multiple Vote Now buttons.
Oh, and there's the Hardware Awards and Software Awards hyperlinks which take me to the lists which takes me to the reviews
and the Readers Awards link takes me back up the page to the selections again.
I've not got totally confused yet, but is there somewhere to vote for Software ?
Is it just me, or . . . . . ????

There are some glaring gaps in the selections. Why can't we have a "None of the above" box ? and how about the WORST retailer of the year award, far more interesting (but not good for the ad dept.)

ella33 - don't worry. Your vote will simply be updated every time you vote. It's held against your registration, so no votes are double counted.
amonra - there's no 'none of the above' selection because that would be nonsensical - are we going to give an award to 'none of the above'? We're trying to reward and encourage good service here. If you don't like any of the options, you don't have to vote in that section. We provide a forum to complain about poor service 365 days a year, regardless of our 'ad dept'. But singling out one brand to dishonour in such a way would be more likely to trouble our 'legal dept'!
Covergirl - I'm afraid until you are called to serve as an editor, you are eligable to vote only in the Reader Awards. It's possible it's confusing. I'll take a look.
