The Hour is Upon Us!!

Alexander Skarsgard 211

This is it, folks.  This is the last hour for the Poll to get your choices in for the Wild Card Places!!!!

In less than an hour, the polls will be closing.

Also. when our esteemed Banner Maker, did the double check (not State Farm’s since we don’t do the whole copyright thing you know) she found a place in two of those places you are voting available.  So your votes are going to determine more places!!!

So why are you waiting?  Click back into the site, and the poll will be posted right below this post.   Let’s get those votes in!!!!

The Authority.

Vote!

voteYeah… that whole it will be soon thing?

Yep.  4Padfoot really rocks this ballot making thing.  But then, she rocks it all doesn’t she?!?!?

So here is the thing… You have one vote in each section.  There is the full list, of who all you can vote for, with how many places are available for wild cards.  And yes, there were seriously that many ties.  See why we said we would leave it up to you?  This is the awards for you guys.  The readers, writers, betas, artists and so forth.  And you already talked up your favorites.  Now go decide who of these people are going to be on the finals!!!

Vote.  And these will close tomorrow, Sunday, May 10th Midnight EST.  So let your voice be held, and vote in your wild cards slots!

The Authority.

Holy Smokes Batman!!!!

Love me

Oh they do, Eric.  They seriously do…

You guys seriously rock the nomination ballots!!

We actually got through them all already.  This shocked us too.  Thanks to all that sent in information to me, it helped.  And that whole mention to my own readers of being well read in the fandom helping?  Oh my.  It really does!!!!

But we have an issue.  You know that top ten idea we had to make sure you weren’t overwhelmed?  Well it seems we have alot of ties to fill in the last of the fields.  We talked about it ourselves, and since one or more of us are often in the category, we decided to allow you guys to make that decision.  It is only fair.

So what our wonderful 4Padfoot is doing right now is putting together a vote for you guys to decide who will be filling in the blanks we have now. Call it the Wild Card vote….  We wanted to give you a heads up, since this will only be up for about two days.  Like the rest of the day it is posted and the following day.  That is it.  We have our own work to be doing on the back end, and would like to have a chance to allow the nominees who are to be involved this year a chance to know before the big vote.

Thanks to all of you, without you, there would be no awards, since, as authors, if we didn’t write, there would be nothing to read, as readers, there would be no one to read the works, and those who took time out to nominate your favorites, or there would be no awards for us to put together.  Look for a post here soon to be able to add your vote in for the finals!!!!!

Thanks!

Voting is OPEN!

Yes we are opening a 30 minutes early but we have been working on this forever it seems and we all just want to share.  Enjoy!

 

Before you eagerly press the button below, there are a few things we at The Authority would like to discuss.

  1. THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!  We were completely overwhelmed by the number of nominations we received.  In all, there were 1,256 individual nominations spread out over all the categories.  Of those 1,256 nominations, there were 695 stories/authors that we needed to verify.  Of those 695 stories/authors, that left us with 606 viable options for voting.  We have spent the last week verifying the stories and the authors.  This has involved scouring many internet sites, emailing the authors directly, and generally driving ourselves crazy as we got everything ready!  We at The Authority may disappear for the next two weeks to sleep off all the hard work from this past week!
  2. Let us define “viable option”.  We checked, and in some cases double-checked, all the stories nominated.  With the exception of two categories (Pins and Needles and Best of the Best), if a story was not updated within the last six months, we removed that story from voting.  As we said before, we want these awards to be for those authors that are actively working to update their stories.  All completed stories were considered for every category UNLESS the nomination form was not filled out completely.  For example, some entries for Best Villain were thrown out because the villain wasn’t listed.  Sorry folks, we aren’t mind-readers.
  3. A special thank you to Meridian and msbuffy for their help!  Meridian helped us verify the nominations, and msbuffy was our impartial judge when we weren’t sure how to handle something we met in the nominations.  Don’t worry folks; next year we will try to have things more clearly defined to make everything easier for everyone involved!
  4. Many of you nominated EricIzMine or one of her amazing stories, but you will not see any of the stories or her name in the categories for voting.  There is a very specific reason for this.  We have something special for her, but we will not show it until we announce all the winners.  Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about her.

 

Nominees!! You can get your nominee banners here.  Banners

The Authority Panel Updates…

Nominations are closed!  Tallying has begun!

 

Thank  you to ALL who nominated goodness that is a huge list.  The whole Authority Panel is currently busy compiling, double checking and triple checking nominations so that our voting polls can be opened.

Voting will begin on May 15th thru May 29th.

Nominations end tonight!!

Notice from the Authority Panel!!

Remember you only have about eight hours left to submit your nominations for the awards! So get to a computer quick.

It is time everyone!

Nominations close May 8th at 11:59pm (EST)

The Authority Panel Is issuing the rules again:

  1. All completed fanfictions may be submitted for consideration.

  2. A WIP (work in progress) must have been updated within the last six months to be considered for any category EXCEPT the Pins and Needles award.  We understand there are some phenomenal stories out there that are in progress, but we want to try to celebrate those authors that are continuously striving to update their stories.

  3. For the New Kid on the Block award, the author must have posted their first story between May 1, 2013, and April 30, 2014.

  4. For next year’s awards (yes, we are thinking ahead), the same story cannot win a category twice.  For example, if Bored to Death were to win The Best of the Best (favorite fic of all-time), it cannot be nominated for that category again.  As we said before, we want to celebrate all of your hardworking authors.

  5. You may submit the nomination form one time.
