Just a reminder that we'll be kicking off quarterly voting threads for Headline of the Year starting around December 1, and plan on getting it wrapped up with the final voting threads by December 15 so we can share our favorites the last couple weeks of the year when we're bored.
For the Totalfarkers, earlier today I posted Headline of the Year preliminaries: September 2011 and there will be another one either today or tomorrow for October headlines. The Photoshop gang also picked some of their favorite Photoshop threads, and I'm setting up a thread later this afternoon for that, if you're interested. When it's up, I'll post a link in here for you.
