Simple “voting by the community” was not proposed as a selection mechanism, due to social media’s extensive normalization of “just click like,” rather than encouraging thoughtful engagement in these kinds of decisions. Instead, community members are encouraged to comment upon nominations, giving the Selection Committee a range of perspectives to consider. Is this a good approach? In addition, asking people to leave comments – versus just clicking “Like” – provides an opportunity for dissenting opinions to be heard.
