Chaos Horizon welcomes comments and input from readers, particularly on the questions of statistics and analytics. Currently, Chaos Horizon uses WordPress and the WordPress comment moderation software. I’m doing this for a couple of reasons:
1. I don’t really know how to turn comment moderation off.
2. I like how WordPress blocks spam, which Chaos Horizon gets an enormous amount of.
3. I know that discussion of the Hugo and Nebula awards can get heated. While I don’t mind heated debate, Chaos Horizon is an analytics, not an opinion website. We’re looking at which novels are likely to get nominated, not which novels “should” get nominated. If you’re too insistent on a commentator that some novel is awful, or author x never deserves a nomination, I’ll ask you to take those ideas offsite. If I feel this is the case, I’ll ask you in the comments to take the debate offsite, and if you keep posting comments, I’ll block them.
I particularly welcome questions about methodology, and how I come up with the Watchlists and Predictions.
If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at chaoshorizon42&gmail.com.
Thanks! Enjoy commenting.
