RE: The Steemit Awards 2020 - The Winners
I appreciate the concept of rewarding steemians with awards of various categories. I also acknowledge that the organizer of any contest reserves some veto power in deciding who the winners turn out to be. Most times, this veto power is demonstrated via the setting of rules and guidelines.
I'll humbly suggest that we all accept the results as they are. I had my own opinion (quite different) right from the nominations process but what can I do, I'm not an organizer and I can't impose on someone how to run their contests or awards.
Maybe, if you have a more transparent award process, you should consider hosting your own yearly awards.
For the above-stated suggestion, I'd like to cite two examples from football - Fifa the best awards and Ballon D'Or.
Both award excellence in football but while the former is organized by the overall football governing body, the latter is organized by a french football magazine - France Football.
So maybe you can come up with a more transparent and prestigious award system. We always recognize awards for what they are, transparent or not or prestigious or not.
Just a humble suggestion.
