Campaign of The Year 2016

Yes!  It's time to look back once more and make a choice!  So what was the best Campaign of 2016?

In the month of June, you decide!

Only one campaign on the list of Campaign of the Month can win the accolade of BEST!  And this GREATEST HONOUR is bestowed by you, the Obsidian Portal community!

The victor this year will win some free Ascendancy Time from Obsidian Portal as well as something to enhance any great campaign.  KOBOLD PRESS will be sponsoring two amazing PDF publications - "The Kobold Guide to Plots and Campaigns" and "The Kobold Guide to Worldbuilding".

So keep your eyes peeled on these forums!   Look out for the up and coming BLOG!  

The time is nigh!

cool

    We're definitely way behind schedule, but it's also sort of playing catch up as well. Hopefully we'll get awesome vote turnout.

    Where is the go?  Don't tease Twiggy with the ready steady unless there is a go.....

    Good luck with this folks- there has definitely been some interesting winners in the past....

    Sorry, I was as expecting the "GO" as you were.  I didn't mean to tease for so long.  There IS going to be a GO!  Honest.....

    So... the blog is having a minor issue right now with displaying articles (as in none are displaying), so for the moment i am putting the CotY voting link here so people can still access it until the blog is back to 100%. Sorry for the disruption.

    So how long is the blog going to not be fixed??  Pretty embarrassing to have a CotY and have people not know how to get there....

    Hoping for a speedy resolution obviously, but that is why I have posted the link here in this thread.

    Tragically, I've got nothing back from support as of yet. I sent a mail to kaleidoscope, on the hope that I can get ahold of someone who knows what going on, or can help. I'll post an update here as soon as I've got something.

    The timing of this blog error (and the lack of support) couldn't be worse. This should be when we shout out to the rest of the gaming world, "Hey! Come look at how awesome this site can be!"

    But this is really just kinda embarrassing...

    Its very likely the proverbial nail in the coffin for me.

    Unless there is a renaissance of support...well...

    I have been away in the Highlands with no WiFi for four days.  Coming back to see the situation with Campaign of the Year UNCHANGED is enough to make me weep.  crying

    The irony is that my Ascendant renewed yesterday....

    Yeah, I renewed this week also.

    To be honest, as long as Kaleidoscope keeps the lights on I'm going to continue to use this site. Even with the issues, it's still the best tool I've found for managing my campaign.

    I've specifically avoided doing any media embedding because of the ongoing problems with that function, but I'm otherwise still pretty gung-ho about my campaign site.

    You can get around the video media embedding issue by hosting the video in your media library rather than on youtube.  As you can see in the link below the video works.

    I'll stay until the lights go out, with the caveat that I have built/am building a redundant site.

    Can't risk losing access and continuity.

    10 more fans and we would have made it to the first page of campaigns.  /sigh.

    Hey all, update on this: it took a little bit, but I finally heard back from support (kaleidoscope, not OP) and the blog is back to working. There appear to be a few images that are not displaying, but I should be able to fix that easily enough.

    I'm debating extending the voting period by a week or so due to the loss of the "advertisement" for a large percentage of the voting period. Thoughts from the public?

    Okay, I have officially extended the CotY 2016 vote cut off by one week so that anyone who might have been impacted by the downtime of the blog can still have the opportunity to review the candidates in detail and cast their vote. The new cut off date is: Saturday, July 08, 2017 6:00 PM GMT-04:00

    In this barren world of sad wanderers without guides, "SHOULDBE" may be a land not yet discovered by the good ship OPSupport!  devil

    I appreciate your concerns.  Honest I do!
