It's been almost a week since we opened submissions, and our form manager has noticed some irregularities in the nominations. Since it has happened several times, we would like to clarify a few things.
ALL-TIME FAVORITE FANFICS: This category was created so each fandom could nominate their favorite stories. All stories MUST be from the fandom they are being nominated in. NO CROSSOVERS. We have the other categories for that, so please nominate stories from only the respective fandoms. In the case of the Marvel Universe, crossovers among the Marvel stand alones are allowed, but NOT outside that fandom.
2014 FIRST PLACE WINNERS CANNOT BE NOMINATED: In this case it seems people aren't exactly checking the 2014 Winners List we have on the blog. PLEASE take the time to check if the story, author, beta, pre-reader and/or banner maker you're about to nominate has won last year. To clarify something about stories in the Favorite Category Fanfics: Stories from an author that won that category last year are admitted, just not the story that won first place last year.
CHECK THE LINKS ARE WORKING BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR NOMINATION: We had several google links that aren't working on the forms. PLEASE get the correct link from the site/blog where the story is posted. Don't copy the links from your google search. We don't have the time to search for the right links, and it pains our form administrator to have to delete those entries.
That's all for now. If you have more questions, please leave us a comment below.
Keep on bringing in those nominees, and may the odd be ever in your favor.
