Chicon 7 Fixes Hugo Voter Packet

The full Hugo Voter Packet now is available – including previously missing samples for the Best Editor – Short Form, Best Semiprozine, Best Related Work, Best Graphic Story and Best Fanzine categories.

Helen Montgomery, Vice-Chair, attributed the delay to a “very large bug” which was resolved with a lot of hard work by the Chicon 7 tech team and their ISP. The problem caused a 10-day delay in making the missing material accessible, everything else in the packet having gone online by May 18.

  1. I wouldn’t dicrsebe c5con as a Finnish convention. The very idea is that it’s international, or at least both Swedish and Finnish. The programming is entirely in English. The members come from Finland and Sweden. The committees have been from both Finland and Sweden (and c5land, which has its own culture, different from mainland Finland, perhaps closer to Swedish culture, but still not the same thing). And if I read the WHOIS information correctly, the domain name for the Mariehamn 2016 website seems to have been registered from Sweden in July, so I guess the same thing would go for that.As far as fandom goes, c5land only seems to be relevant when Finns and Swedes are to do things together. Otherwise the Finns would keep to mainland Finland and the Swedes to Sweden.
