Voting! Categories 11-20

As you're voting for your favorite stories, please keep these guidelines in mind:

  1. Authors cannot vote for themselves. You may vote in a category you are nominated to only if you are choosing to vote for someone else.

  2. Please try to vote in all categories. You must vote in at least half (10) of the categories for your vote to count. This is to avoid people coming and voting for a specific story.

  3. Please read each story in a category before you make your judgment. If you cannot fairly evaluate each story, please do not vote in that category.

  4. Anonymous votes will not be counted.

  5. Each person may only vote once for each category.

If you don't have a livejournal account, you can still participate! Please read the info here.

Voting will open shortly--please check out the guidelines!

Voting is about to begin for the Chosen Two FanfictionAwards!

Overall, 94 stories were nominated. Four were excluded because their categories did not receive enough nominations to open. I was unable to reach the authors of 10 stories and these will not be included in the voting. Two stories were ineligible for nomination. One author declined the nomination. One author had two stories nominated for the same category and the second story could not be included. We have a final total of 76 stories up for your reading/voting pleasure, which is awesome and I thank you all so much for participating!

Posts will be going up shortly with the nominated stories. Before you vote, please take a moment to review the rules. If you do not follow these guidelines, your vote will not be counted.

Last minute help judging nominations?

I had a lot of responses to my initial request for helping validating the nominations but most of those people haven't been able to help... Is anyone willing to do some last minute checking of some nominations for me? I'd like to send you the list of stories that still need to be checked and you can let me know if you've already read any, as well as choose a couple you haven't to check out.

if you can help, please email me at alice.in.wonderbra8@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Updates on nominations!

Thanks to everyone who has sent in their nominations! I'm happy to say we have enough to open most of the categories. Actually, we have so many that I have decided to allow up to ten nominations in each category. In future, I might narrow it down to six again, but since this is our first time doing this, I want as many stories as possible to get a shot.

Right now, these are the categories that need more nominations. If we don't have three in each category, they will not open for voting:
  • Best non-fuffy fic by a fuffy author--this category has two nominations and needs one more
  • Best villain--one nomination so far
  • Permanently unfinished fics--two nominations so far (one of which i think just got updated and will be ineligible for this)
  • Episode redo--two nominations so far
  • AU:--one nomination currently...
  • Crossover--no nominations!
  • Original character--no nominations!
  • Fluff--no nominations!
  • Best characterization of a supporting character--one nomination so far
Because I have decided to allow 10 stories from each category to go up for voting, I am going to close the Angst category. Please do not nominate any more stories for this category!


Nominations will remain open for all other categories until 11:59pm (PST) on November 13th. If you have any more nominations, now is the time to send them in!

As a reminder, if you don't have a livejournal account and you don't want to make one, you can nominate to the awards by:
  1. Leaving a comment to the nominations page and signing it with your email or your buffynfaith.net name.
  2. Sending me a PM on livejournal of buffynfaith.net with your nominations. My name on bnf is FindHope.
  3. Emailing me your nominations at alice.in.wonderbra8@gmail.com

Judges wanted

Update! There has been a great response on volunteers to help with this. At this time, I don't need anymore judges. We do, however, need nominations! *wink, wink*

We need judges who would be willing to read nominated fics to ensure they meet the category requirements and are reasonably well edited (for grammar and spelling).

We may end up doing a judge's choice award which all judges will vote on as well. Please comment below (comments are screened) if you would be interested in helping with this! I will not announce who the judges are, so no worries about harassment. :)

If you'd like to help, please copy the info from the text box and reply in the comments.
