Featured Stories for September

Postby DragonSilk » August 8th, 2012, 6:49 pm

In celebration of Banned Books Week, the theme for the month of September is books.

This does not mean that only stories based on books can be nominated. Perhaps the characters could be reading a book, or a book could act as a major plot point. Maybe one of the characters is a book. (It could happen.) Perhaps the story takes place in a location with a lot of books, like a library. Feel free to think outside of the bookcase box.

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 virtual unhatlike hat and those will be the featured stories. (Unless there are < six submissions. In that case, everyone wins!)
  • 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]

Let the nominating commence!

You can't run a fic trade, but you can nominate fic trade stories here. (You can do a person-to-person trade (such as you and a friend write each other Christmas stories or something), but big trades are run by moderators because certain things we do with them require certain permissions that the average user doesn't have, especially anonymous trades.) Currently, there's a round going on, but signups are over, and assignments have been sent out already. The next round in which you could participate is going to be in October.
