It was indeed. Stories are eligible to be recommended for the neb ballot for 12 months from publication. 0wnz0red was published in 8/2002, which means that it was eligible to be recommended for the ballot until 8/2003 (last August). It received the requisite 10 recommendations for the prelim ballot before then (but after 12/2002, when eligibility for the 2002 ballot closed), so it appears on the 2003 ballot, even though it carries a 2002 pub-date. It's all very picky and obscure and not really worth caring about unless you're trying to figure out if your own story is eligible.
