Featured Stories for July

Postby Kerrigan Sheehan » April 28th, 2012, 5:43 am

EDIT: Due to the forums being down for most of May, this is just being pushed back one month.

There will be TWO featured themes for July Double-Header Month. (Which means a few changes, written in red below for your convenience.)

The themes are Non-Prolific Authors (less than 10 stories posted) and Collaborative Works (Round Robins and Co-Authored Fics)

RULES:
  • You cannot nominate your own story for featured. If you make a sock puppet account to nominate yourself, we will know. We'll be checking. If you are caught nominating your own stories, you will be permanently banned from nominating stories or having your own stories nominated. For this reason, if you nominate, you're required to have an on-site account -- not necessarily with the same username, but please make it clear who you are if the name is different.
  • Because there are TWO themes this month, you can nominate one story for each theme. No, you cannot do two for one theme.
  • If an author has written something that has already been nominated for this coming month, please don't nominate one of their stories again. If a story has already been nominated for this month, nominating it again won't do any good and will only prove you haven't read the rules.
  • If a story has already been a featured story in the past, do not nominate it again.
  • Use the form in the pretty code box below to nominate. Fill out the ENTIRE form.
  • If you are not comfortable making the titles link, just stick the URL in there somewhere.

AND THEN...?:
  • Nominations will be open all month. At the end of the month, six submissions from each theme will be drawn out of a virtual unhatlike hat and those will be the featured stories.
  • There will be no more than one featured story from a given category every month. For example, if the first story drawn from the virtual unhatlike hat is a Naruto fanfiction, all other nominated Naruto stories are removed from the remaining pool of entries. "Original" counts as one category.
  • The above holds unless there are fewer than four qualifying stories after fandom is taken into account. In that case, more than one original fiction story may be featured until there are at least four stories. Depending on the number and variety of submissions, other fandoms may be considered for having more than one featured story. (See: September 2011, in which six qualifying stories total were nominated and all featured, three of which were original fiction and three of which were Hetalia; in this case, having only two featured stories, or three OF and one Hetalia featured, is a bit silly in either case.)

THE FORM:
Code: Select all
 [b]Title: [/b]
[b]Link: [/b] (if title is not linked)
[b]Author: [/b]
[b]Category: [/b]
[b]Rating: [/b]
[b]Non-Prolific Author or Collaborative Work: [/b]
[b]Your Luna Username: [/b]


Nominations/questions/comments/etc. go here.

Before I nominate, I have a couple of questions with the two themes. For Non-Prolific Authors, do we nominate a story from an author that has fewer than ten stories posted? And the same for Collaborative works right? The form makes it a little confusing (don't get me wrong, I'm all for using it, but I just want to make sure I understand it properly and nominate correctly ^^; ) So does that mean if we wish to nominate one story for each category we do the form twice?

Sorry if I totally sound like an ignorant gal, but I just wanted to make sure I do it right! This will be my first time nominating stories on here Dx

-Non-Prolific Authors nominations - The writer of the story you're nominating has to have 10 or fewer stories posted.
-Collaborative works is NOT related. The collaboration could be, for example, one of the works DG and Mao (both quite prolific) coauthored or one of Penguiduck's (also prolific) round robins.
-We were worried that those two weren't going to get enough nominations on their own, so we ran them at the same time. They are, however, entirely separate.
-Yes, you do the form twice if you want to nominate one for each category. It's mostly so whichever mod does the June announcements doesn't get confused as to which category the particular story was nominated for.
-That is an adorable witch.
