Following on from my list of the Ten Coolest Gay Clubs in Second Life, I decided to investigate another major factor that makes a club great: the DJs. I didn't want to make this an easily rigged popular vote so I decided to go with a peer voting system.
A famous example of a peer voted award is the Oscars. Movie industry professionals recognize the achievements of their fellows at the Academy Awards.
There's no Academy of Disc Jockey Arts & Sciences in Second Life, so I tracked down 193 DJs to survey and collated the results.
Voting was close, with the exception of the number one DJ, so several people tied for a certain number of votes. I decided to make these equal place getters, so we have ended up with 16 people in the top ten list.
Without further ado, here are the top DJs in the gay grid (followed by their DJ name and fan group):
Equal tenth place:
Equal ninth place:
Equal eighth place:
- DaddyAdam Gartner (DJ Daddyadam formerly DJ Darkangel, Bear Entertainment)
- Vortmax Mumfuzz (DJ Vortmax, DJ Vortmax)
Equal seventh place:
Equal fourth place:
- Dextrum Boucher (DJ Dex, DJ Dex's Filth and Fury)
- Kaj Juutilainen (DJ Kaj, DJ Kaj's Groupies)
- Rocket Jefferson (DJ Rocket, DJ ROCKET)
As I mentioned above, DJ InsyX was far ahead of the pack in the voting tally, which is a measure of the high regard in which he is held by the DJ community.
Congratulations, InsyX, and to all in top ten positions!
Finally I'd like to mention the following runners up, each of whom attracted a significant number of votes: Arcangelo Hellmann, Atreyu Witrial, Blaise Pooley, Braden Darkstone, Bren Betts, Esmiel Posthorn, Jarrod Fitzpatrick, Queen Edman, Ralphy Triellis, Romeo Reardon, Rylan Sirnah, Kadie Pinkenba and Scary Jester.
