The awards have a new and permanent home this year! mcshep_awards

Nominations are now officially OPEN!

Please read the INTRO post first!

And when you're ready you can go ahead and start NOMINATING! Please make sure to read through the nomination post as there are a few rules as to which stories are eligible to be nominated this year (PLEASE make sure that you post your nominations to THIS post only, or to the email address included on the nomination page).

To save on the hassle of having to contact EVERY author nominated to see if they are interested in/willing to have their fic nominated in these awards there is a handy dandy POLL where you can choose 'yes you want your fic included' or 'no you don't want your fic included'. If you could take a moment to answer that poll for both me and those who are going to be nominating, that'd be great! :)

You'll notice that there are posts for each nomination category already--that's to save on the community's Flist later, each post will be edited accordingly once nominations have ended. ;) So for now you can ignore those posts as they really don't have anything of interest in them.

***Once the nominations are finished, if there is a category with LESS than FIVE nominations in it, the category will be removed from the list.***

Last year we had almost 200 nominations, let's see if we can double that this year!!

I'm sorry guys that I've not contacted the winners. I got back home from vacation today and after several doctor visits, a fire/smoke conditions in the room next door, and several other poor events, I'm dead tired. I'm not even sure if I have work tomorrow or not. So give me another day or so and I'll begin firing off the emails, or if one of the other mods/maintainers/cool people would like to start that for me, it would be much appreciated.

Congratulations to all the winners of this years Addiction Awards!

I have made a complete archive of the links to the repective winners at the Addiction website.

I'm working on the banners. What I have done so far is up on the website, so go take a look! The rest will be up over the weekend.

I'd also like to say thank you a million times over to Cassie Jamie (and everyone else who's helped out behind the scenes) for taking over this year while I dealt with Real Life stresses.

Hi, everyone. Yes, the time has come to put up the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for each catagory. There were several ties for catagories. I've talked to a few different people about it and decided that they will both be getting the award. Also, the idea I discussed earlier about story 2005 and other catagories? So did not need to be done. :) Now, I never got the chance to email everyone who was nom'd. For this I apologize, but of course I will now contact the winners. The banners will be made by Emma (and possibly me if she needs me too because damnit, her graphics are pretty things).

That's it everyone. :) I'll continue tallying the votes as I have been and begin making the first place banners. I'm going to ask Emma about some things and I'll post again later today. :)

Sorry about this guys, voting was supposed to end today, but I've been having problems sleeping which consequently makes me braindead so since I forgot tomorrow at midnight is when the voting will end. Give me about a week and I'll have the votes tallied and announced.

Sorry for the lateness of this, but Karen McFadyyon has asked me to remove her stories from the voting. As soon as I can, they will be removed from the story lists and anyone has voted for one of her stories is invited to change their vote if they please.

The stories to be removed are:
[x] Courtship (UST/Pre-slash)
[x] Mating Rituals (Humour)
[x] Aliens Made Them Do It (PWP)

This is something I've been tossing around in my head for weeks, and I'm going to put this out there for feedback:
The stories that were nom'd for Story 2005 have all been pretty much nom'd in other catagories. It doesn't seem fair to me that, should there be enough votes for them, a story should get the award for 2005 as well as another catagory. So say a story is in Angst and 2005, wins 2005, I'd like to give the Angst award to what would have been the second place story.

But again, I'm just putting this out there for a thought. I'll make a decision about this next week.

And pegasus_01's vid, We Are, has been updated. A new YSI can be found by clicking the link I placed in the vids post, and then scrolling down into the comments. If there is a request, I can place the YSI directly in the vids post.

Happy voting.

As everyone can see the awards are open for voting. The info page has been updated with shortcuts to all the entries for reading or viewing, and voting. And at this time the following known issues are being/have been resolved:

1) Nixa Jane's Branding was linked else where and can now be read by everyone. I will update the story list in a moment to reflect this.
2) Three vids, which were on YSI, were gone. I will notify everyone if/when they are updated.
2a) ficklememeer's vid, Ever the Same, has been updated and is able to be dled.
2b) darkmoon711's vid, I'm Not Okay!, has been updated and is able to be dled.

As people can see I'm using screened comments (though the mods posts will be exposed, sorry guys; I'm gonna fix that somehow.) but the same as I said before stands - send me an email if you're more comfortable with that medium. Send me the title, author/creator, and the catagory with "McShep Awards Votes".

And please, I know there are some fabulous stories out there, but try to vote for a particular story only once if it's nom'd else where in the awards. I'm not saying you can't but I think it'd be nice if a different story won each catagory. :)

I've not been able to get notes to everyone to tell them that their fics/art/vids/icons and what have you has been nom'd. I will begin doing this tomorrow, so anyone who didn't get a comment or an email and is already here, be on the look out.

I think that's it for now, so happy voting everyone. Feel free to announce the voting period where ever you'd like, though I promise I will post on mckay_sheppard and sga_noticeboard soon myself.

just a brief note to the BritsCollapse )

Comment to this entry (comments are screened) with the TITLE of the icon as the SUBJECT. Please place the creator's name in the body.

This will save time during the tallying phase.

Thank you.
