A Ranking Table
was introduced. The Anagrammy Awards Rankings use a formula that
rewards those who have won awards in the last 48 months, giving greater
value to most recent awards, and then reduces the value of awards by
20% per year. Thus, those showing consistent success in recent years
and a high current level of involvement will be most highly ranked.
A small version of this table, showing the Top Ten was added to the top of Forum page
Anagrammasia Database was added to the databases to be searched for rediscoveries.
The Anagrammy Awards joins Facebook
and Twitter to promote its popularity.
Members with more than three entries in a category in the Grand Anagrammy Awards must reduce the number of their entries in such categories to maximum of three.
The Forum software was upgraded to block the ip addresses of spammers, trolls and other distruptive individuals.
was agreed that the voting period be reduced from 3 days to 2 days each
month for a trial period, given that very few votes came in on the
second day of voting.
was agreed that the Software Category would be dropped in the Grand
Anagrammy Awards, as there were only two serious competitors and that
Anagram Artist won it every year.
The Rankings scale was adjusted so that the percentage value of each year dropped by 25% over 4 years, instead of 20% over 5 years, making the changes more pronounced each month.
