1999-Apr-12: PLUGGED wins Laxton's "The Best Paul McCartney Site" award

Well, this site has really made it this year! Thank you very much to everyone who submitted their vote!

You all know the section for Beatles Fans at the Miningco? Robert Fontenot has been running this section for quite some time now, and he reviews everything Beatle he finds on the web - and updates at least once a week. So this is an invaluable and respected guide for Beatle fans.

Last year he started "The Laxton's Superb Web Site Awards" and my Beatles Site made the Top-10; at this time, solo sites did not qualify.

This year, The Laxton's Superb Web Site Awards have been established for 12 different categories of Beatledom. PLUGGED was nominated for Best Paul McCartney Site and the result is most astonishing - considering the wealth of McCartney sites that there are now on the web:

Category: The Best Paul McCartney Site
Winner: Plugged -- The Unofficial Paul McCartney Home Page
Webmaster: Harald Gernhardt

Macca fans are serious -- this category had more votes than all other categories put together! Also meaning that Harald had the most votes of anyone in any category, with second and third place taking their respective honors as well. Harald took in 60% of the vote (amazing, considering the number of candidates and votes involved).

Thanks everyone! It really does mean a lot to me!

Well, I'm not finished yet! Although I did nothing to promote the poll for that category, my "other" site Harald Gernhardt's Beatles Pages was voted "The Best Bootleg/Collectors Site":

An amazing feat: even with a site that requires paid membership (for a very good reason), Harald's managed to come out on top in the voting: he walked away with a big 42% of the vote, testament to the excellence of his site.
