    That makes sense. Especially if we went the route that System Error suggested so it wasn't shipping fic centric.

    I think this was the fic that always won, assuming we're thinking about the same thing.

    That was the fic that always won, thank you for finding it Aether :)

    While I like System's reasoning, we will not be adding any new Awards, at least not for these ones. It is something to consider for the future, but the cut back style does make things smoother and easier for the judges (and personally, I want my Best Pokemon Character award brought back first should we ever change things :P) We shall see how things go with the new style first and then we can have a look into if the types of fics present in the Workshop have changed. If there are actually more stories with romance as the central theme it would be something to consider, but it would have to be a significant number and not just three stories competing against each other.

    If that like canon pokemon character or a character that is a pokemon?

    If you could nominate your own stuff, I'd nominate Bones for that award if it was the latter. Fo'sho.

    Character that is a Pokemon.

    I always though that award was cool because it encouraged people to actually put thought into the Pokemon they used in their story. It led to some more interesting writing.

    I've moved the ratings guide into the main rules post, in case anyone's wondering where it went.

    If you went with "Best Relationship," then that doesn't actually have to be strictly between characters that are involved romantically. Platonic relationships or even Kismesissitude antagonistic could also be included, giving you a wider range of stories to work with.

    I like the new scaled back award system you've announced. It sounds more efficient.

    Guess I should keep writing fics then

    We haven't announced anything yet: the Awards were scaled back last year before I became Forum Head. But yes, it has been more efficient :)

    For reasons best summed up as 'depression', I did completely drop off the face of the internet for a time around this time last year, something which I rather regret. Like many things, I'm redoing Different Eyes, and may eventually return to this forum. While contemplating that, I remembered with shame that I left several other authors waiting for reviews. I feel I should assure you that I still have the notepad with the names of everyone I owe feedback, and have not reneged my promises - just delayed to an absurd date. Many apologies - I look forward to that time.

    Hey, I remember seeing this on the Danish national news TV (Yes, our country is actually so small that some news is shown on national that are about indie projects (two so far is related to Kickstarter))!

    On an unrelated note, welcome back, unrepentantAuthor.

    @AetherX; your reward made my laptop overheat :P

    Anyways I like the new date for the awards, it seems a bit more fitting, though wouldn't they be more of summer rather than spring by June xD

    They will be renamed, don't worry! Though I am disappointed as I had a good idea of what Pokemon to feature on the banner for Spring :P Maybe it will have to be a duo this time to signify the transition...

    If you want to come back, then you'll be welcomed. But you don't owe anyone anything, and you're certainly not obligated. Real life comes first. Take your time, work through things at your own pace, and know that you'll always have people to support you here.
