Featured Stories for May

Postby crazydominodragongirl » April 1st, 2012, 2:57 pm

The theme is ~*~*MOD APPRECIATION MONTH*~*~ sparkle sparkle desu desu! Important notes for this month are highlighted in red!

RULES:
- You cannot nominate your own story for featured.
- 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.
- If you nominate, please make sure to include the author's name, and the category/link to the story itself will save us trouble later~

AND THEN...?:
- Nominations will be open all month. At the end of the month, all mods with nominated stories will fight to the death. The only one left standing will have their story featured.
-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.)

Nominations/questions/comments/etc. go here~

HAI. THERE ARE SEVERAL THINGS I WANNA NOMINATE. Um, let's start with~

constant sugar high by Mao! It was one of the first fics I read that has Yukimura and it's soooooo funny! btw its Prince of Tennis

Um, um, I also like KSs The War and I know it's been featured before but its so good ^_______^

Hey. I don't mean to be rude or anything, but I thought the whole point of having a featured section was to show our appreciation of other authors, not point out our own works....

I know this has nothing to do with the nomination but oh god the silliness, you mods are ridiculously silly. *shifty eyes* What's Kay doing, not joining the fun?

Also, You guys have too many awesome stories. Can I just do Mod Appreciation and be done? Okay? Okay. I'm done. /shot

I agree! Celestial Sakura-san, we are the most serious. Seriously. In any case, DG, I really think you should! It would be like double the troll! Somehow. If you don't, I will!!!

WHOOOOO LOOK HOW SERIOUS THE MODS CAN BE--

Real theme is animals. Real changes to the rules are below. There's just one thing of note. We are aware, and have always been aware, that it's fairly easy to cheat, especially as far as featured stories go. We've left it the way it is for so long because Luna operates under something of an honor code system. However, we're being a bit more strict on this point because breaking the rules for attention is Not Cool. Seriously, guys, if someone nominates you for featured, that means they appreciate your story enough to do so. Going out of your way to make a fake account and nominate yourself because you want more people to read your story is just pathetic.

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.
- 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.
- If you nominate, please make sure to include the author's name, and the category/link to the story itself will save us trouble later~

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.
-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.

Really good joke, Mods. ^_^ I am really new to this side but like that you are not too serious. I can see your human... ~(°_°)~

I would like to nominate His Enchanted Canary (13+) from WoHoYo. The fandom is Katekyo Hitman Reborn. It is a sweet story and we have birds in there. (:
