Reliable independent sources needed badly![edit]

Once again, a noteworthy RPG author, Robert J. Schwalb, is being considered for deletion. As has happened before with various other authors, companies, and games, the ENnies get pointed to as a source of major awards in the industry, the ENnies are being challenged as a "major award".

To aid in the long term stability of multiple RPG industry/hobby related articles, I think it is important that we find reliable sources covering the ENnies.

I have found some articles on GeekNative.com and OgreCave.com, but those may be challenged as not-significant.

In its day, GamingReport.com was significant (had paid reporters that it sent to GenCon at expense), but that operation has folded. Unfortunately, the only major gaming news organ that I can think of that took it place is ENworld, which is not independent of the ENnies. That being said, if anyone can find some vestiges of its ENnies coverage, that would be something.

I believe that Dungeon/Polyhedron had coverage of the ENnies during its print run; that is certainly significant. This is something I had planned to pursue myself given time. However, my personal time is scarce this week, so any help here is appreciated.

Finally, if anyone has any access to any hobby store magazines (like Game Trade magazine) that mentions them, those would be compelling inclusions.

Thanks for any assistance in this. - Sangrolu (talk) 12:20, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Just found a reference in Dungeon 102/Polyhedron 161 and added to article. - Sangrolu (talk) 23:08, 10 May 2011 (UTC)
