    Just passing along some responses…

    From the folks behind : “Thank you to the folks who put these awards together too! It’s a great way to discover and recognize high quality resources.”

    From an r/mormon commenter: “This is excellent. Thank you for putting this together. There is so much content I did not know about but look forward to consuming.”

    15 years on, nice to see the Brodie Awards still collecting thousands of votes, cheers!
