Welcome!

Post by darvit » Mon 14th Jan 2008

Welcome to FanGathering's 2nd Annual Awards!

Can you believe it? We're doing this for a second time after all! Let's hope that we keep on doing this for the rest of our lives! [Hmm, that sounded wrong.]

Anyway, thanks to suggestions and lessons learned from the past awards ceremony, we have made some improvements for this year's awards. This is how it works:

The Mechanics
Nominations
  • Each category will have its own thread. During the nominations period, these category threads shall be locked.
  • I will pin another important thread, the Nominations thread where we can all nominate other members for each specific category.
  • Nominations are unlimited, but you can't nominate yourself.
  • The nomination period begins today, January 13th, and shall end on January 27th.

Voting
  • Each person may vote for a maximum of three people per category where a voter's first choice is given three points, the second choice two points, and the third choice one point.
  • Voting will be made public. One can vote by simply posting and assigning points on the category threads.
  • Logically, you also are not allowed to vote for yourself.
  • Voting begins a day after nominations, January 28th, and ends on February 6th, just in time for the next installment of FanGathering's newsletter, The Haven Herald.

Prizes
Like last year's awards, each winner gets a 30 post boost to their post count, and of course, bragging rights for the next year. :P

And just a little reminder: please do remember that this is all for fun! :jump:

As MichaelM said last year, don't worry about winning or losing because seriously, you guys rock. Of course, only one person can win per category, but don't get upset if you don't win.

Let's all have some fun and celebrate the fellowship and fun that we all had in 2007!
:woot:

Let the awards ceremony begin!

You just vote in the threads.
You click on the thread you want to vote in (say name the name) and post the three you want to vote for (say, 1.BlackOpal 2.BlackOpal 3.BlackOpal). :P
Thanks to darvit and /b/for my signature. :D
And thanks Kagoma, for the awesome birthday present that is the C&H sprite!

Wanna know what I just realized?

The close-date for the voting is the same day as my half-birthday.

So when the voting ends, I'm gonna be exactly nine-in-a-half.

When do we find out the winners? Will they be in the Haven Herald?

Yup, the results would be posted on The Haven Herald. :D [and on their respective threads]

I haven't locked the threads yet, though, just in case people may want to do last-minute voting. :D

I know I won an award already, and that I'm tied in first place in 2 other categories. What happens then, actually? Are there 2 winners?

Wow, you're fast. XD I'm still in the process of tallying up everything on Microsoft Excel. XD [Yeah, because I'm OC like that. :wink: ]

And yes, there will be two winners. :P

And I will be locking the threads now. I don't want anyone to come and mess me up while I tally up the votes. :focl:

Should I add a spoiler tag? Maybe some people don't want to know about it yet, I think.

Good point. But you aren't online right now, so I'll edit it for you. :D

Thanks again, Meova.

I've finished the tallying. I'll probably upload the Excel file for verification later on.
