    I have a question about registration.

    Do we have to register to nominate and then register to vote for each award process or only once for everything?


    Also, on a related note, do we need to register again next year?

    Okay, this is probably going to sound like a silly question, but I've been wondering it since I first participated: are we supposed to fix the links when we send them in? I mean, do we *just* copy and paste them, fill in the urls, titles, etc. or are we supposed to replace the "{" with "[" before we submit them?

    I seem to recall mixed answers when I volunteered last year, and we didn't mark any as ineligible. Is one way easier on the volunteers than another?

    Oh, blast! Nominations end tomorrow? I haven't had time to do a proper set of nominations because, well, my sister is getting married tomorrow and I'm the maid of honor. Is there any way that nominations could be extended? I wish I had more time tonight but I'm incredibly wiped out right now. I realize the answer is likely no but the qualifying nominations list is also looking rather worryingly slim. (Not that I have a snowball's chance in hell, mind, but there are lots of authors up there who deserve the recognition!!)

    I also advice happy people that get nominated NOT to tell their partner while standing on a staircase, basically singing with joy like a certain character from "Sound of Music".

    I never saw that kiss coming. Neither did my jaw when his skull went up. I am still happy for the nominations but you do not want to know how split my under lip is now and how sorry my husband is.

    I hope he dares to kiss me again should I really win for any of the nominations. Or if I do not at all as a sweet comfort.

    He sits in his office now, highly embarrassed, while I hope the bleeding and swelling stops at one point.

    So my security advice is:Stay calm when you find yourself nominated! Make no hasty movements in your enthusiasm! Get seated safely and enjoy your nomination!
