    "Through the Force, things you will see. Other places. The future, the past. Old friends long gone ... "

    After spending some time here, I want to thank the compiler of the index for first, the hard work in maintenance and next, the nostalgic trip back to '06, when the boards were fresh and new to me.^:)^ Oh, reading the names of those long ago, vanished authors and friends ... =((

    The Golden Yodas award long ago honored an interesting category to the author @Glad is June because it's tough enough to come up with one plot, let alone a sub-plot. Or two. And not allowing the sub-plot to take over ...[face_mischief]

    Glad Is June
    Amidala is the Key (2001 - Summer, All eras, Best sub-plotting) -- partially saved on the WBM

    Best wishes and thanks to the nominators and those handling all the data at end of day and throughout the weekend. Looking forward to many good reads and much fun!!

    Nominations have been officially closed! Thank you everyone who nominated.

    There has been a slight change of plans. We are still hoping to get the nominations list up by Monday February 5th (as originally planned) however we are going to delay putting out the voting survey by 2(ish) weeks. This will give us a chance to make sure everything on the voting survey is correct and a chance for those nommed in the author categories to be contacted regarding links (we will contact you if you are nommed in these categories with instructions. Plus everyone (including mods and volunteers) time to read before voting starts.

    The list of nominated stories and authors is now up here.

    Note, we are still getting links in from those nominated for author categories. We will update the list as we get them. ALSO, we are willing to pull nominations at authors' requests until the voting survey goes live in about 2 weeks (we will have an exact date closer to then).

    Since I have a story erroneously nominated in two length categories, which is not fair to people competing in the category where it does not belong, I will take you up on that offer. :)

    Side note: I just told @ihatesandtoo about this and she said we're all crazy. :p

    Do you mean to pull a story out of voting?

    Two weeks from when we posted was the 19th and we're on track to meet that. So in order to pull something before voting goes live, you'd need to do so before the 12am on the 19th PST. But the sooner the better.

    The survey is now live and you are allowed to vote!

    To get the link to the survey, please go to the Awards Rules and FAQ that is stickied at the top of Resource, or click here.

    Remember you need to register with the mods before you can vote. It's super easy! See the Rules and FAQ thread for more info.


    Also, we've extended the voting by one week to give you a bit more time. The survey will now close on March 25.

    Yay! Time to read everything that I have not read previously, though I know who gets my votes. :D

    And...wait, I need to catch up with many things first. Okay, some of them match the above criteria. :p

    This is good news! I am working on getting my ballot together and hope to be ready with it in the next few days. Always fun to do this particular "civic duty" (though tough with all the excellent choices this year!). :)

    In the meantime, as we work on our ballots, I hope it's all right if I share a little piece of voting-related advice from one of the journals of the 18th-century British cleric John Wesley (it's completely nonsectarian, in case anyone has any concerns—this is a Jewish girl posting this, after all):
    Still good advice today, methinks, and may it be so for us. @};-

    That was beautiful!

    But it won't stop me from betting with myself again. :p

    EDIT: Voted! [face_dancing]

    Also, I win best signature and @BookExogorth wins best username. Because I said so.

    So, having nominated, I need to re-register to get a different code for voting?

    No. This was one thing I wasn't sure about myself, then it turned out the same code is valid for both rounds. :)

    IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to vote and have yet to ask for a code (and yes, if you nominated, just use the same code for voting as well) PLEASE DO SO SOON. Not sure about Mav, however I will be on (probably) only late tonight and late tomorrow night.

    PLEASE VOTE!!!!
