    Default Summer Awards Discussion

    The other Summer Awards Nominations Thread is for nominating fics only.

    If you have any questions, suggestions or comments of any kind, this thread is the place for them. =)

    What qualifies as a short story? Is it still two chapters maximum?

    Yes. A short story can either be a one-shot or a two-shot.

    2010/08/02: 4th chapter

    For the "Best Archived Story" tier, is there a limit on how far back that goes? is that the whole archive, or do they have to have been archived after a certain date?

    EDIT: Never mind, i just read the rules for nominations XD.

    I quite like the "Judge Panel" aspect that have been added. I'm assuming there will be some sort of mini-review to explain the decision?

    Yes, each judge will explain their decisions when the announcements are made :)

    Also, we forgot to mention a new twist to the prizes this season!

    In addition to the traditional prize banners that the winners of the story tier receive, the winning authors will also receive a detailed review in their fic's thread from the judges. It's not a huge prize, but everyone loves their story to be reviewed, so the judges will prove their expertise by awarding the winning fic with a good, thorough review.

    Another question about short stories. Since most one-shots are put in the Archive not long after they are submitted (since they are technically finished), can they only be nominated as Archive fics? Or can they still count as short stories if they're relatively recent?

    That's a great idea, and I was going to mention it; a review is always good, and a detailed one is even better.

    I believe Kayi's post about the Best Archived Fic is a typo and I'll edit it now.

    It should read any fic that has been in the archives since before 1st March is eligible for Best Archived Fic rather than 1st July.

    One shots follow this same rule.

    Basically, if a fic has been updated since 1st March, it's eligible for any relevant award except Best Archived Fic and a fic is only eligible for Best Archived Fic if it has been in the Archive since at least 1st March.

    So, short answer, yes, one shots still count as short stories if they're relatively recent.

    I had an idea of something that could help get people to read a bit more.

    Why don't we make a list of the alternative fics so people find it easier to go and read them and thus nominate for them?

    Actually, we're working on a directory of some kind that should sort fics by genre and category which will make nominating a lot easier.

    Unfortunately, I highly doubt that will be ready this awards season.

    I'd also be reluctant to do it now because I don't have a comprehensive knowledge of all the Alternative Fics in the Workshop and I doubt anyone does and it might end up giving one person unfair attention. Also, if people are specifically pointed out and then not nominated it might lead to hurt feelings.

    As I said though, it is a fantastic idea and it is something we're working but in a more long term sense. Thank you for the contribution =)

    I was thinking that people who had an Alternative Fic or a fic in an unnominated category could contact a moderator instead of the moderator trying to find them all, as I don't expect moderators to do that much work :P
    Of course, it would have to be clear the fic is alternative/whatever genre instead of someone cheating the system

    That could be a workable idea. Personally, I would still prefer to leave it for this Award season and wait for the directory (which is under construction) to come into action which may or may not be ready for next season.

    What happens if only one fic is nominated for a certain category? Would it win by default, or would something else happen?
