Marking winners[edit]

Hi, nice job getting a literary award to FL. The special marker for winners is required due to the accessibility guidelines, but it's not required to be a * it can be any marker. There are more interesting markers that would have a dual purpose of also looking appropriate for sighted readers. One is the blue ribbon (Blue ribbon) which is often used in literary awards. But there are many other small icons. -- GreenC 16:04, 21 February 2014 (UTC)

Inconsistency with other sources for 1983 award[edit]

The list used here is based on the Locus listings and names Karl Edward Wagner the winner in 1983. The actual WFA website mentions a Charles L. Grant as winner. Another usually reliable source, ISFDB listst both as winners. Does anybody know who has the right of it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.176.88.206 (talk) 08:59, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Huh. Well, looks like this may have been an error on my part, because the SFADB (Locus) says both won, as does the ISFDB. The Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy Awards (Howard DeVore, 1998, page 240) lists both as winners as well, as does The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (John Clute, John Grant, 1999, page 1033). There's a scattering of other books that mention Wagner or Grant as winning in 1983 as part of talking about that author in particular. All this is to say, I think the WFA website is wrong (which does not shock me at all), and that this article is also wrong. Adjusting to say they tied. --PresN 11:20, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for sorting that out. I'm a bit further into the list now and I found another one were Locus and ISFDB state there is a tie and this list doesn't. The year 2000. Winter and VanderMeer are joint winners as far as I can tell. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 143.176.88.206 (talk) 17:57, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Updated, thank you. --PresN 14:46, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
I've gone through and manually verified all of the other years/awards; there were a couple other ties that I missed. --PresN 14:59, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
