  1. Welcome to the new boards! Details here!

  2. Hey Fanficers! In fixing the prefixes something happened and now you can't edit titles. Don't panic! We're looking into what happened and trying to fix it.

    Yeah, but for the purposes of the awards (see my reply to Chyntuck above regarding ROTS/19 BBY) we aren't going to get that detailed. We are just going with the starts/ends of the movies.

    This is your reminder that nominations are due in a little less than two weeks (February 2nd). Please try to get them in early rather than at the last minute because that makes the volunteer's jobs much harder and may end up causing a delay in the schedule.

    See the Rules and FAQ thread which is stickied at the top of Resource for all the information!

    Do we get to see what is nommed, or is it a hush hush until after? I ask because in previous years, we got to see.

    Like in previous years, will release all the noms once the nomination period is over.

    So... NOT during the actual noms process like it was before. Okay. :)

    I’m afraid I’m not quite sure what you mean; I don’t think we’ve ever released the list of stories actually nominated to go to the voting round until after the nomination period was completely over. Do you mean the list of stories eligible for nomination? That list can be found in the stickied Rules and FAQ thread. Just trying to understand correctly what you mean. :)

    So, I'm doing my survey responses now and:

    1) Some folks should be arrested for complicated usernames.
    2) Some folks should be arrested for extremely long story titles.
    3) I should be arrested for having stated 1) and 2).
    4) It's awesome that we can save stuff and go back and forth! Any idea on the session length? Does this expire?
    5) Given 4), I shall be recommending SurveyMonkey to my clients. I was always reluctant to try it, now I think it rawkZ.
    6) Some categories are extremely underpopulated in general.
    7) A lot of folks could make it easier by adding canonicity, genre and length to their stories' mastheads. Or add mastheads in the first place.
    8) NSWFF might take me ages.

    I wouldn't rely too much on the fact that it seems to keep your answers. I don't know how long it does this for.

    Think you might be preaching to the choir ;)

    I'm done. I nominated two things/people in every single category. 30 people in SW, 15 in NSWFF, 42 total different people. My noms will result in a helicopter on my roof and the nice people in white taking me away in a cage. 8-}[face_rofl]:chopper:

    And they already resulted in a delay of, well, everything else, so...all of you, come and help me bake.

    Are any of the categories suitable for drabble sets, or drabble threads?

    Absolutely! You can nominate drabbles for anything because they are stories. Drabble threads could be either category of best series, depending on if they are a consecutive story or unrelated drabbles.

    Also, if they are a thread that has a continuous story, you could nominate the whole thread in any category.

    Thank you.

    Also, for characters, now that I have read the Survey Monkey format, rather than story; author, url, do I enter character, author, url?

    I am still at the stage of starting to build a text file to work from.

    When you get to the Character and Relationship categories, the survey will ask you for character(s); story; author; and URL (with the exception of Ensemble Cast).

    At work, for some reason, we keep adopting software that cannot cope with certain characters.

    Can Survey Monkey cope with square brackets? I've just noticed that the thread titles that I'm copying, come with [fandom] prefixes.

    Nominations complete.

    Well done to:

    a) All involved in organising this;

    b) Whomever thought of having a preparatory text page;

    c) Whomever designed the Survey pages.

    Good luck to everyone.

    Reminder: Nominations close this Friday at 11:59pm PST. Please get your nominations in before then. If you are planning on nomming and haven't sent a fanfic mod a message about getting a code, please do that sooner rather than right before the noms close as I can't guarantee you'll get one in time!

    'K, I just re-read the sticky thread, and I think I missed... you can nominate a story in more than one category, yes?
