Just to let folks know, this has been done before but it didn't take off however, with the sudden rise of new and different users posting Fan-Fic as well as everyone having several stories each I am officially rebooting the awards!
It's going to be different this time with me as judge, meaning that my fiction can not be nominated and voted for. (I know right, sucks. -.-)
First of all, what happens if you win?
Well, after taking a look at the RPG awards section, you now have a picture detailing your award, what month you won the award and your username that you can use as your profile picture, about me picture or background pic! (see below for the badge)
For the writer:
Fic'r of the month (whether you write or not, being generally helpful and nice towards new users or giving helpful advice to other writers, even commenting on someone's stories may get you the award)
Best writer (One we should all be striving for)
Best new writer ( If you have recently discovered the 'Fan-Fic' forum here and have posted your very own fan-fic, even if you have written Fan-fiction before on other websites, you are still eligible)
For your stories and characters:
Fan-Fic of the month (Can only be a singular chapter, if it is a fan-fic that is updated by posts, the post has to have been posted within the month and will be graded by itself and not as a part of the whole fic)
Best story (A continuation of the story has to have been posted within the month but the whole story will be judged together. Same story can not be nominated twice in a row.
Best new Fan-Fic (Has to have 3 chapters or under to be eligible. One chapter has to have been posted within the month.)
Best character (Can be original or established. Judged upon your writing of the character, same character can not be nominated two months in a row.)
Best supporting cast (Judges on how well you write your character's supporting cast and if your supporting character's fits your Fan-Fic or/and character)
Nominations begin on the 1st of each month to the 20th, voting lasts for 5 days. Anything written or posted after the voting thread has been posted will be eligible for nomination in the next month.
You may nominate yourself or other writers and their work for the awards.
If you have any questions or if I've left anything out just ask me or let me know. Thanks!
And now the all important picture/badge you can use to show you won the award.
