3/14/08 - Beginning today, my criteria's have changed to meet yet another newly discovered knowledge in hopes that it encourages everyone to do their very best at designing their websites. With elements and desires for change comes the possibility of new accomplishments in the future. Plus, as of January 1, 2008, this is now my 10th year in the awards community. With this, comes a new and exciting responsibility to the internet community as a whole. That responsibility is clear to me, and it is to provide my viewers with an awesome way to say that they are proud to be an MSAP Nominee. When I notify applicants now, they receive a Nominee Badge to display on their website so that everyone may know that they are being considered for this award.
