First of all, the webmaster wishes to express his sincerest thanks to everyone who have cast their votes! Also many thanks for voting a 2nd time when the votetaker chose to take down the first "graphical" poll since it was being manipulated and all votes had to be discarded.
Last year, this site has won both the "Best Paul McCartney Site" and "Best Collectors/Bootleg Site" awards - can this be topped? See yourself:
This year's results:
Category: The Best Paul McCartney Site Winner: Plugged -- The Unofficial Paul McCartney Home Page Webmaster: Harald Gernhardt
"Once again, the Paul contest is the most bloodthirsty of all, with the most votes (but not the closest race - that's still to come)! The race WAS closer than last year's, with Harald's slightly larger share of the pie - 64%, as opposed to last year's 60% - beating out the fanatics at Off The Web, up a spot from last year with 32%. At third, for the first time in the top 3, was Macca-L."
Category: Web Site Of The Year Winner: Harald Gernhardt's Beatles Site Webmaster: Harald Gernhardt
"It's been around since 1994, and it's always in the running, but this is the first year Harald's site has won the Big One, eating up 41% of the vote and just beating out two-time winner The Spanish Beatles Page, which pulled in 32%, and Abbeyrd's Beatle Page, which garnered 21%."
Category: The Best Bootleg/Collectors Site Winner: Harald Gernhardt's Beatle Page Webmaster: Harald Gernhardt
"One of the oldest and most-respected Fab sites on the web, Harald's site really pulled away from the pack this year, winning with 97% of the vote! Not to dwarf the importance of two wonderful newcomers to the winner's circle: The Beatleg Project, with 2% of the vote, and The Beatles Archives, with the final 1%. Several other fine sites received votes, but the competition was fierce: this section of the contest had more total votes than almost any other!"
