It’s almost hard to believe we’ve been at this for two years but we have. We officially threw open the doors on January 1st, 2006 so the arithmetic fools us not. We have been surprised by the level of difficulty involved with this project. From the queuing of submissions, to the actual grading, to the correspondence after the fact. Trying to be fair and consistent, trying not to let first impressions influence us overly so, trying to be thorough… the work isn’t easy, and it all adds up pretty quick. We can easily spend hours dealing with one site. We think it’s a good cause, though, so we will press on.
We didn’t do this on our one year anniversary post, but what follows are our submission/rejections stats so far. What you won’t see this year is a list of Classic awards — we didn’t give any out, unfortunately.
- Total Sites* Submitted: 345
- Rejected Submissions: 241
- Pending Grading: 7
- Sites Graded: 97
- Graded and Awarded: 76
- Graded and Not Awarded: 21
* This includes legitimate submissions only.

Happy New Year. Have a GR8-0H8!
