The results of our first poll are in! The questions was:
With the Worldcon winding down in Denver, Colorado, and with the Hugo Awards coming under heavy criticism in recent years, do you believe it's time to rethink the entire process regarding SFF Awards?
298 votes were cast:
- Yes: SFF awards have so little credibility nowadays that they don't hold any sway over what I read. (32%, 98 votes)
- Yes: As long as they rely on such an obsolete and expensive voting system, the Hugo Awards' relevance will continue to dimish. (28%, 85 votes)
- No: The Hugo Awards have been run this way for years, and there is no reason to change its format or voting process. These awards are a genre institution, and they deserve more respect than they are getting at the moment. (10%, 30 votes)
- I don't care one way or the other... (28%, 85 votes)
