Best Microbadge of the Year 2012 (Retro)
Welcome to the Best Microbadge of the Year 2012 (Retro) contest! And Winners!!!
Please take a minute to look through the 12 microbadges that are in the running for the award, and vote on all that you think are deserving of winning the contest.
The designers of the three most voted badges will receive the following prizes:
1st place: + 50% of any tips this list might receive.
2nd place: + 25% of any tips this list might receive.
3rd place: + 25% of any tips this list might receive.
The awarded microbadges will be one-of-a-kind for the year, and will never be distributed again.
The poll will run until June 15, 2013, after which the winning badge will be declared.

Contest fine print:
If a tie exists at the end of the voting period for any of the top 3 positions, a small poll to decide the winner/podium will be created (to run for, at most, a week).
Also, please remember that eliciting and/or soliciting votes for badges, either publicly or privately, is not allowed. Please do not advertise one specific microbadge or designer; let votes fall where they may, honorably!
Any situations that are not identified will be dealt with by the Microbadge of the Month/Year committee (currently zorro_jv, garion, and myself, wildthayne). The committee's word is final, but we're all quite friendly and won't bite your hand off. At least, not unless provoked.
