Fools, given the decided dearth of nominations this year, and the efforts required from various groups to publish the award, it's been decided to discontinue Feste.

Of course, this means that Michael Read now holds the honor in perpetuity, and can bring the trophy back out of hiding (in the bilge, probably.)

This doesn't mean we won't continue to celebrate the accomplishments of individuals in our communities, it will just take a different form (often we just give 'em a job and call it good.)

I apologize to the nominees for this year; you were certainly worthy.

So you (TMF) insult them by deciding to discontinue the award since it's not worth the effort to pick a winner?

Your decision really, really sucks.

And *what* "efforts required from various groups to publish the award"? I never noticed any huge effort. There's one column announcing the winner every year
and they get an icon next to their username. How difficult is that?
