    Default 2013 Autumn Awards Voting Thread

    Hello once more everyone,

    Now that the nomination period has ended, with more nominees in some areas and fewer in others, (thank you to everyone that took part, you are helping to keep the Awards alive!), it is time we move into the voting. In this round, the public votes for the stories they want to carry on to the judging round. Each fic and character requires two votes to make their way to the next round, though this will vary depending on how many votes are cast in each category as there must be competition.

    The rules:
    - You may vote for two stories/characters per category. These may only be from the list below and not alternate submissions.
    - You may not ask anyone to vote for your work. You may remind your readers the categories you’re nominated in within your thread, but you cannot directly ask someone to vote. If someone asks you to vote for them, can you please let us know as there will be punishments – you have been warned.
    - No voting for your own work (duh). Even if you nominated your own work, I encourage you to spread the love around and vote as well.
    - This is not a rule persay, but please can there be no whinging/complaining about not getting any votes; it does not do you any favours and only makes you look bad. I will not be pleased if I see any of these posts floating around.
    - Remember to double check the list to see which fics/characters have gone through (they will be bolded). There is not much point voting for a fic that has already gone through so your vote could go elsewhere. If you change your votes please let us know what you have changed.
    - Judges and moderators can also vote.

    For the next week, please nominate people in these categories, and then you will all get the opportunity to vote on them once this week is over. For Newcomer, this user must have published their first story between June 10th and October 7th, and for the other two the users you nominate must have done their posts between the same time period, so no voting for User123 for their nice review on Journey Fic #73 back in 2010!

    Nominees so far:
    Best Newcomer: Elysia, Midorikawa,
    Best Reviewer: Tophat Dragoneye, Flaze, Kyuuketsuki
    Best Contributor: matt0044, Flaze, Tophat Dragoneye


    You have until 11 AM Tuesday 15th New Zealand time to cast your votes, so make sure you both vote and vote wisely! Best of luck to everybody, and let’s all have a great competition! Please remember that the Best Non Pokemon will be updated throughout the week so come back and vote in that category. For any updates remember to follow us on Twitter ( @bulbawriters) and if you discuss the awards use the hashtag autumnawards13.


    (P.S. Anyone else who wants to do some judging, please make sure to let me know, I am still looking for a few extra hands to help out :) )

    Just an update that we now have two nominees in the Best Non Pokemon categories. As I contacted two people about their votes I am going to wait until I have heard back from the second before shutting the nominations. Remember to check the list of nominees to see which stories and categories have already moved on before voting, and let me know in some way if you edit your results.

    Remember to keep on voting everyone! Four people really isn't enough, and we need some more competition! If you have not yet voted and there is a story/character you love that has not moved on, you can make sure it doesn't miss out and is able to move on! Also there are the Best Newcomer/Reviewer/Contributor categories that need some more votes, so keep those coming in as well.

    Meeeeeep I'll give this a go. ^^ I ended up excluding stuff that's already advanced through, because that would be repetitive and redundant and repetitive and redundant

    Other people have already nominated my votes for the best newcomer/contributor/reviewer categories, so do I need to nominate again? Sorry, I'm new at this. :>

    EDIT: I FIGURED I SHOULD, SO HURRAY. @AceTrainer14, sorry to bother, but I guess I should mention since I changed my votes?

    Best Reviewer: @Flaze (for reviewing basically every new chapter/story that's come in here as of late and other feats of assorted badassery)
    Best Contributor to Written Word: @matt0044 (for starting all the discussion threads and actually making me think, o.O)

    Our last submission for Best Non-Pokemon/Crossover has come in, so that category is now closed. You have less than 24 hours to cast your votes, so if you have not yet voted than I strongly urge you to do so. We also need a significant number of extra nominees for the user nominated categories, as we currently dont have a lot of variety or diversity between them so please cast more for that!

    I won't be voting since the deadline is too soon for me to read and choose, however if you still need help judging then I'm willing.

    Voting has technically closed, but does anyone else want to vote for any stories/characters or nominate anything else before I close things off? I will give you a few extra hours for this.
