Readers' Choice Chooser
Participant in the 2010 Readers' Choice awards. Voting in only a handful of categories is for babies--babies who won't get this achievement! These dedicated not-infants voted in every category available like a grown-up. This achievement will be issued once Readers' Choice voting closes.
Best of 2010 Word Spreader
Harnessing social currency to drive buzz. These users shared how they voted with their friends on Twitter or Facebook, amplifying the social experience with relevant and engaging content.
Best of 2010 Popularist
Just go with the flow. These users voted on every category, and their choices more often than not were the Readers' Choice winners. Omniscience? Nah, they probably just voted for the ones that were already winning. This achievement will be issued once Readers' Choice voting closes.
Best of 2010 Dark Horse Rider
Underdogs don't always win. That's why they're underdogs. This user voted on every category, and their choices more often than not were not the Readers' Choice winners. They chose poorly. This achievement will be issued once Readers' Choice voting closes.
