Featured Stories for August

Postby Kerrigan Sheehan » June 27th, 2012, 4:02 pm

Posted early because KS wants to just copypaste the announcements on July 1st. (Spoiler Alert: KS is doing the July announcements.)

The theme for August is Gaming month.

This does not limit stories to those posted in the "Gaming" category or just video games. This also includes stories that involve games in any way, such as two characters playing a game. "Games" includes many sports, games like tag or hide and go seek, card games (of any type, standard deck or otherwise), board games (including tabletop RPGs), and text-based roleplays and LARPs.

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.
  • You may only nominate one story.
  • 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. (Please check if it has a little ribbon on it.)
  • Use the form in the pretty code box below to nominate. Fill out the ENTIRE form. (Also, please check the ratings.)
  • 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 will be drawn out of a (possibly) virtual and unhatlike hat (or KS' tophat, as the July stories were) 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.)

A gaming month theme and a gaming theme for the fic trade?

DO I LOOK TO BE IN A GAMING MOOD?!

I'm not sure...I can't see your state from here, let alone you. (All I can see consists of the houses across the street, the base gate, some cars, a fence, and a convenience store.)

But the both carry warnings that "games" doesn't just mean video games, and the fic trade also includes the caveat that it doesn't really need to involve games at all and that I just needed something interesting to call it.

^--- *Silently squees* <3

Anyway, *regains composure* there were a lot of options for this theme. I had to pick and choose. Definitely a good theme (but hard to make up my mind).
