We had a nasty bugger in our system. The &%*^$# critter gave out a few random Editor's Choice Awards without first consulting with us. What a slime ball!
Over the past few days...if you've discovered an EC Award on one of your articles but have not gotten an official email notification...you've caught a bug. Or vice-versa.
Fortunately, there were only a few instances. Unfortunately, most of those articles did not quite qualify for our award.
Another sign that you've caught a bug was the fact that it showed the award only on articles and profile pages, but not on the front pages of Wizzley.
Along with squashing that bug, we also had to remove the fake EC Awards. As you can imagine, we are totally embarrassed about this, and we are sorry for first causing excitement and now disappointment. (Self-flaggelation in progress.)
Thank you for your understanding.
