In all the confusion I missed the tally of the Community GOTY? If there a link to see how the tabulation worked out, I would love to see it.

Submissions ended on the 6th so it could come out today at the earliest. That's just my guess.

I missed it too, the first time I saw anything about it was on one of the Instagram posts the day after it closed.

Yeah. GB did a poor job of surfacing it this year. I had to dig to find the form despite knowing it had been posted. I feel like in prior years it always had a prominent front page spot.

I wonder if the number of votes cast this year is lower than the number cast last year. It seems many people missed the opportunity to vote this time around.

Yeah, I missed it. I gave it some thought, but all the GB GOTY stuff just took the wind out of my sails and I forgot about it. Oh, well.

I voted but I used a google search to find the link. Also it’ was really strange that the Community ballot link was more visible by posters on the GB Subreddit and GB Resetera Thread than it ever was on proper GB.

Yep, this was mostly my fault for not making sure it was promoed better on the homepage over the break. I threw up links on Twitter and Facebook a couple times over the break but I definitely understand the frustration if people missed it - obviously the homepage was full of GOTY stuff over those weeks but I still should've manually promoed it on the homepage better. Sorry about that! Still learning all the ins and outs of the new homepage. I'll try to get the votes together sometime this week and add this to the GOTY postmortem so we can do a better job of making sure everyone sees it this year.

Can you see if you're able to vote in it now? I extended the end date for it. If so I can open it back up for a week or so and promo it on the homepage. Let me know!

This is great I hope people take teh opportunity to vote. I always liked seeing the trend of what they whole community thought. The 'special guest GOTY' entries always bring in interesting choices, but you see a wide expanse of games from the whole community.
