Day[9] for Shorty Award

#1 Edited by dr_mantas (1914 posts) -

Sean "Day[9]" Plott, who hosts a very well made daily SCII replay commentary/analysis thing, is nominated for a Shorty award.

http://shortyawards.com/category/gaming
 
The voting is a bit crazy, because only people with older, active Twitter accounts can vote. 
Please vote for him. 

If you don't know what day[9] daily is, here's a link to some archives:

As well as his youtube channel

I voted, but I wish I didn't have to do so through twitter. Not really something I want tweeted out to everybody.

#3 Posted by Ben_H (3366 posts) -

Already voted but good idea to spread the word.  We need Day9 to win.

#4 Edited by fraser (478 posts) -

I have no Twitter account so unfortunately I can't vote.
 
But just wanted to say. I can't play Starcraft, nor do I know much about it. But I watch the Day9Daily....well....daily. One of the most entertaining game-related things online!
 
So yeh, someone use my vote please!

Vote people! I don't even know who the other guy is...

DAY9 DAY9 DAY9 DAY9 DAY9!!!
 
FUCK YA!!!!

#7 Edited by Arkanti (255 posts) -

Also,  who the fuck is Adam Montoya(the guy who is currently beating Day9)?
 
Edit: It seems he has a Youtube channel in which he plays... Call of Duty and Halo. Will be so sad if this guy wins.

That is Seananners.  He is a really popular Call of Duty player that does Youtube videos.  I think he has like 500k subscribers.

Hell yeh I'll vote for day9. SeaNanners is funny and all, but no-one is as passionate as day9 is.
 
If you havent watched this vid, then i fully recommend it. Its 110 minutes, but I just finished watching and it was incredibly moving at times.

I voted for Day9! He isn't just a gamer, but a teacher, an advocate for gamers and a hilarious dude. Plus he's pretty damn good at star2.

#15 Posted by thejamster (263 posts) -

i hate how i have to do it through twitter.  i don't have an account!!!

#16 Posted by imsh_pl (3296 posts) -

Whenever i'm down I just watch this XD 
 
@babblinmule:
Thanks for that I will watch it now.

@babblinmule: God damn that video was incredible. Day [9] makes me proud to be a gamer and not feel like it's a complete waste of time. You have to be stone cold to not be moved by this.
#20 Posted by EnchantedEcho (739 posts) -

Yes, everyone vote for Day9 he is so much more worthy of this award than Seananners, he puts in so much more enthusiasm and effort into his videos.

#21 Edited by StarvingGamer (8283 posts) -

Day[9] has pulled ahead with a lead of ~120 votes!

#22 Posted by StarvingGamer (8283 posts) -

Oh no he's fallen behind again by ~30 votes!

#23 Posted by endless_void (706 posts) -

I don't understand this.  HuskyStarcraft is doing it too.
 
It's Twitter awards for best content on Twitter.
 
None of those people produce any interesting content on Twitter.

#26 Posted by Froy544 (49 posts) -
@HaltIamReptar:  On their about section it says people are nominated on their entire body of work and not just twitter.
#27 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2029 posts) -
@Froy544: It says the entirety of their Twitter messages, not just one tweet.
#28 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2029 posts) -
@Froy544: Oops!  I'll just excuse myself from this thread now...
 
But not before saying Day [9] is awful and Husky is where it's at.
#29 Posted by Froy544 (49 posts) -
@HaltIamReptar: Actually I changed my mind I think your right. it says    Each award recognizes each content creator's entire body of work, not just an individual tweet.  
 
 Which I guess would mean their entire body of work on twitter. Then in the judging section it says   Members of the Real-Time Academy of Short Form Arts & Sciences will carefully review the finalists' tweets and Shorty Interview answers (if any) 
 
So I guess it is only based on their tweets.

Yes, incomprehensible squealing, not being able to shed any technical light on the game and constantly asking for subscriptions is the bomb diggity.
#31 Posted by Vinchenzo (6192 posts) -

Both Day9 and Husky suck. That is all.

Why do you feel the need to post things like this?
#33 Posted by Fjordson (2448 posts) -

I love Day9, but I'm more a TotalBiscuit/Husky man myself.

I look at it from the point of view of who entertains me more.  I get bored watching Day [9].

I whole heartedly encourage everyone here to vote for Sean "Day9" Plott.  
  
The reason that it is so important for everyone to cast their vote for this guy is not just for the sake of us all seeing our fav commentator/strategist and streamer win something. It's for the greater good of eSports (competitive gaming) in general. Even if you don't watch the daily religiously, vote for Day9. A vote for Sean is a vote for eSports. The shorty awards do get some media coverage as well, so thats a really good thing.

We (you) can't wait for eSports to happen in the mainstream, you have to proactively make it happen. Voting is one easy way for a person to help the cause. If you are one of those people that find eSports stupid and dumb, I'm sorry you feel that way. You are missing out on some really great stuff and Day9 is basically leading the charge in bringing it more into the mainstream in the west. Also as mentioned above search YouTube for Day9 Daily #100. It is a PHENOMENAL video, even if you don't play Starcraft or even video games a lot, you will definitely be able to relate to it. Goes to show just how much passion he has and what can be accomplished.

So true, Esports finally has a chance to take another step with SC2, but there isn't enough support. VOTE FOR DAY9.

Well, tbh, I'm not a huge day9 fan - but - I will admit he puts a ton of effort into his production, and it really shows. he should win.
