Nominations were unfortunately closed for the majority of February, so, that's likely why the count is still 0. For what it's worth coming from me, I apologize. However, they are active now! March was a pretty good month last year, so, maybe that will hold true this year as well?
Yeah, that was on me. I thought I'd turned them on but apparently forgot to submit properly. >.<;

Thanks for those suggestions! I'll have them in the OP by the next update.

March games/numbers are up! This month we had one nomination!

I'm honestly not sure what to think/feel about this. There might not be enough data to go on, but, I have to wonder if the fact that nominations weren't available in February made people think we just weren't going to do it this year? I dunno. I kinda hope things pick up next month.

April's numbers/games are up! I'm really not sure what to make of these low nomination counts. Though, if you compare the actual change in nomination count with last year's data, April's value might be with a reasonable variance?

I totally forgot about putting up May's nomination value, so I took the nomination count for today as May. Welp.

The nomination count, itself, is still pretty low overall. In comparison to last year, the month of May saw less than half nominations this year than before. Kinda disheartening, but, I suppose this is a "control" year where we see how many nominations we get when the site doesn't specifically push this stuff.

Though, I find it somewhat hilarious that the front page still has voting for last year's Misaos up, and that should be well closed at this point.

June numbers are out!

I swear, I will get one of these monthly updates on time this year. For what it's worth, yesterday was pretty crazy on multiple fronts.

July numbers are out!

I know I wanted to make the update a touch earlier this month, and the increase in nominations from last month make me fairly confident that it won't change too much. Though, the overall number of nominations is still a little worrying that this year will not be as competitive as previous years.

For reference purposes, the lowest vote-count goes to 2009's Misaos, with 737 votes cast. I don't know how many nominations there were that year, but, if the nominations for this year so far are any indication, this year could have an even lower vote-count. Though, the site records might not reflect that if we're doing external voting again for this year.
I'd suggest a couple more;
I think these are worth checking out!

I appreciate bringing those games to my attention, but, the number of games to nominate really isn't the issue I'm concerned with. It's the number of overall nominations made. I'm part of that problem too, so, perhaps I'm being hypocritical here ;_;

That said, this thread being on the front page (thanks, Frogge!) may direct some people towards that direction! We'll see!
