What categories should be added? Recommend categories we should include that highlight the community, the commenters, and what makes this place such a great and unique spot on the mean ol’ internet (especially over these past two years!). Remember this portion does not cover things like best movies, best books etc. (that’s what the other Pits are for!)

Or should any categories be removed? Are they not relevant or too confusing? Should they be clarified? It’s up to you, the Avocado community, to decide!

So to recap out current schedule:

December 16th – Nominating people/things for those categories

December 20th – Counting up the votes
