At the very least BFS members should be identifiable on the forums, that should be possible to organise (probably ???).

Not sure about the awards and not sure about a democracy (look at the state of the government we ended up with thanks to a democracy). Shouldn't it be a meritocracy and what's wrong with an elitist jury if the members voted for them. If we voted on a (representative) members panel and they were then given the job of reading a shortlist, wouldn't that be a fairer system than the current one (no offence to this years winners meant). members would still have their say on creating the panel and the shortlist.

[...] what's wrong with an elitist jury if the members voted for them.

I tend to agree with both those points .
