    For the old AP'ers, I'm thinking about bringing this back. Two questions, please answer both in your post, and please only post if you're interested in participating:

    (1) Would you be interested in participating if there was a $$$ prize, or only if it was free?
    (2) If you would be interested in a $$$ prize, what do you think would be a reasonable buy-in?

    I think I remember winning a cash prize, but my PayPal doesn't work so I never got it. Hmmm...

    I'm okay doing it for fun or paying like $5, this year should be fun because there doesn't seem to be any clear front-runner

    1. I would probably be interested if it was free or if it had a small buy-in.
    2. I think $5 or $10 is a good number, but no more than $10.

    Also, inb4 people come in here for the sole purpose of talking about how much they hate awards season and anyone who follows it is wasting their time, etc etc

    I'd be in either way. I agree the buy-in shouldn't be more than $5-10.

    Yeah I think $5 is totally acceptable. Next question; PayPal, cash app or Venmo?

    I think Venmo is easiest but I can do PayPal too

    I’d definitely be in. $5 sounds good, venmo is preferable but I can do paypal if that’s what most people have.

    I mean since I’m gonna distribute the prize, people can pay whichever way is easiest. It doesn’t all have to be the same now that I think about it.

    I am interested for $5.

    Can do Zelle, Venmo or PayPal.

    Alright, we’ll keep it to Venmo and PayPal since that’s what most people have. I’ll have the ballots up for download within a few hours of the announcement.

    Because of problems I had with a past pool, I’m only going to accept entry fees up til the day before, rather than right up to the start of the show.
