  Hmmm, kinda comparing apple to oranges there. 

Pa Renaissance faire community is just one faire, ours is ALL of them.

  There are enough multi-festival websites to have separate categories for this-like 'Best General Renaissance Information/Directory site' and 'Best individual faire site'.
  They already breakdown the musical, comedy and street performers down by genre and category; you'd think they would do it for this one.

I hesitate to put too much credence into that poll. It's nice to be recognized, but how does one vote for "the best" if one has only been to a single faire?  Not being critical---more pragmatic, I think.

Suggest it to them on their website.

Merlin and Rowan make valid points.

I sent a message to Marc Gunn, who runs the Renaissance Festival Podcast, to let him know he might want to consider this.
