    Default Spring Awards 2014 Nominees List and Voting Thread

    Hello all!

    After a week of solid nominations, we have what is perhaps the fullest list I have seen in these parts for quite some time! Thanks to everyone that took a minute out of their day to submit both their work and other peoples creations, it is great to see such pride in work and such community spirit in nominating your friends and co-workers nominations! A lot of stories and characters were nominated by the improved voting for others system, so hopefully there will be a few thankful surprises when people see they have been tagged! (and look down to see which characters were nominated too)

    Now, for the next week, you will all have the opportunity to slim down this list into the few stories that get the honour of moving on to the next round. As always, you are allowed two votes in each category, so you can vote for 18 stories and characters across the nine categories in total – make sure you use those powers well! A story or character that receives two votes will move on, but this can change depending on how many stories go through, so that number could decrease OR increase depending on the category
    UPDATED: all Journey and Expansion fics now require three votes to move on

    Here are your official nominees and the ones to vote from:

    Best Journey

    Zoey the Porygon from Tetrix by @Peaceful Giraffe
    Anthony’s Spinarak from Poison Touch by @Anemoi

    Any story/character that is in bold has already moved on, so check the list before voting to make sure you are voting wisely if you have a number of favourites in each category. If you change your votes at any time please contact me via VM/PM or mention me in a post so I can update things accordingly.

    As a general reminder, you can not vote for yourself, and neither can you ask other people to vote for you (and if someone does ask you to vote for them, please let us know). You can promote the fact you have nominees in your respective thread so your readers are aware and can help you out, but no direct asking and no whinging – we had a spot a few Awards back where a number of contestants got all huffy and moaned and complained about the fact they hadn’t gotten enough votes, and it really dampened down the mood of the Awards. This is meant to be a spot of fun to celebrate our works, so try to enjoy it and be pleased your work is up here instead of getting upset.


    Also, this is the time where people can nominate other forum members for the User Voted Categories. These are, as always:
    Best Newcomer – someone who has posted their first story since October 16th 2013.
    Nominees: Ray Maverick ; GastlyGibus
    Best Reviewer – someone who frequently reviews a variety of stories to great effect
    Pavell ; Flaze ; Lance
    Best Written Word Contributor – someone has shared interesting opinions and generated great discussions in the Written Word.
    クリスタル ; Elysia ; AetherX ; Legacy ; Pavell
    You can nominate two people as well in each category (so a total of six). A great way to show people they are appreciated and that their opinions and reviews have been received

    So get reading, get voting, and let’s make this the best Awards yet :D Voting will close Feb 16th at 5:30 PM NZT, so a week and nine minutes from now :)

    For Joshua Cook, it's a long walk away from his dull life to the Pokémon League. But does he really want to be the very best? A coming-of-age story of adventure, friendship and growing up in the world of Pokémon.

    Love you guys, good luck to all! I made all the nominees cupcakes so we could have a writer party, but then I remembered that you're kind of on the internet and I can't send cupcakes through my screen, so I ate them all. It's the thought that counts though, right?

    A small announcement:

    Due to the number of votes cast and the high number of stories, we will now have to up the number of votes needed for Journey Fics to move on to three. This is because of the way our judging works, it would be very difficult and unreasonable to ask of our judges to have to read four/five stories of a considerable length. Apologises to people that had previously gone through, but there is still a chance you may and there is always next time, but I am sure any past or present judge will be able to tell you of how long a process it can be, especially when judging characters as well, and we have to put the best interests of the Awards and our volunteers first.

    If you wish to change any votes due to this please let me know. There is still 50 hours to vote.

    With just over a day left to vote, can I just remind people to please be voting for Characters and submitting names for Best Reviewer/Newcomer/Contributor: it is great to see so many people voting for the great range of stories here, but we also need some more submissions for these other categories. We have received no nominees for Reviewer or Contributor, and there are only five out of nearly thirty characters moving on.
