                    --===Ravi's Pick: Elite Site Award===--

About the Elite Site Award (award mentioned in Wall Street Journal 2/18/97). 

      My name is Ravi, and I have been making Web pages for over 2 years now. 
I currently work as a Web site designer at Internet Utopia.
I don't consider myself to be an amazing Web site designer, nor do I consider 
most of my own sites "elite", but I do know what I like. The award I give 
is to honor Web sites that I like. What do I like? I like sites that are 
both visually appealing, and informative. The design of a site is very important, 
but the content is even more so. I will not award sites that do not meet 
these two very important requirements. But in order to be an "elite" site, 
a Web site must surpass these two prerequisites. The site must be unique, 
or in some way, stand out above the rest. It is for this reason, 
that people find it so hard to win the award.

      I have been giving this award to sites around the Web since late 1995,
and I have not stopped since. I am very busy, and so it often does take time
for me to review the nominated sites. But I do try as hard as possible to
review all the sites that are nominated. I do not write reviews or critiques
of the nominated sites, I make my judgment from what I see. I also do not
maintain a list of winners on line. The reason for this is I don't have the
time. I may some day in the future start one; but at this moment, a winners
database is too much for me to handle. 

      I have often been asked what gives me the right to judge other sites.
The truth is, I am no better at Web designing than most of the applicants. But
I do take the time and effort to look at the nominated sites. The award comes
from me, and so I make the judgment. Also, I don't believe that because I am
offering an award to a Web site, that I must be a better designer. Likewise,
sites that may be better designed than my own are not guaranteed an award. I
do not have to be capable of winning my award to be entitled to give it to
others. 

      If you disagree with my policies for determining "elite" sites, I apologize. 
But I will maintain these standards, as they are necessary to me.  Good luck!
