2010 Run-Off Ballot CLOSED  

ETA: Voting has closed in the runoff ballot.  After the results are tabulated, the moderating staff will post the final ballot.

The categories here all had 7 or more nominees and no clear favorites.  The purpose of this runoff ballot is to narrow down the list to 5 or 6 final nominees.  So vote for your favorite one, and the five nominees with the most votes will appear on the final ballot.  The run-off ballot will close on Saturday, July 3rd, 2010 at 3 AM EDT, and the final ballot will be posted later that day.

Please go to the following link to vote!


See further instructions at the survey site. 

AUTHORS: Please let me know (via comment or PM) if you see any changes that should be made, particularly:
**Wrong Link / Preferred Link
**Spelling / Preferred spelling
**Title / Preferred title
**Wrong Category

We triple-checked these, but mistakes inevitably fall through the cracks. :(

Hmmm, I believe TwiceTold Tale might be ineligible- I was going to nom it myself but the author said on FF.net it had been on the internet for more than a year but she hadn't posted it there before.

I'm also a bit confused about the series. Some only seem to have one fic? (That could have just been me- I didn't click on the links and I can't get back in so ignore this if they actually lead to multiple fics.) But some had all the fics listed and some didn't.

Otherwise, yay!

Re: Twice Told Tale: The moderating team will make a note of that and check the rules. If it's ineligible, it won't be on the final ballot. Thanks for the heads-up!

I think in some cases, the series might only have one published this year, and that's the one linked to. Honestly, we had a bit of confusion with the same series linked several different ways, so we'll have to double-check and make sure we're consistent on the final ballot. Thanks again for the heads-up!

***I double-checked - if you already voted, please do so again. The survey ate it when I had to close & reopen to fix some things.

That's cool. I was under the impression that the series had to have two or more published during the year? Maybe that should be clarified next time.

Sorry, I'm not trying to be difficult, I just know if I get confused about something, chances are I'm not the only one :P

ETA: Okay, voted again. Thanks!

We'll definitely make note of that for next year. Thanks for bringing it up! We want to make things as streamlined and clear as possible. :)

Anissa here - you're right, it should be at least two fics during the year. I shouldn't reply while half asleep. On some I think the link goes to a page or section of a page with all fics listed - we will have to brush that up for the final ballot and make sure we're good to go.

Anissa here: At long last, an answer to the original question!

The series fics that have single links take you to a page with all the stories displayed. Some authors tag all stories with the series name, then make the link take you to all such tagged fic.

In our case, I just put up a page with links to the Snapshots series to make people's lives easier when reading.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Next year, we'll figure out a standardized format for series links to avoid any confusion.

Me, too. And I'm feeling more like a basket case than usual.

Okay, just so I'm clear on this...are we voting for a maximum of five in each category, or just one in each, or what? *scratches head*
Lois: Lois :: Huh?kalalanekent on July 1st, 2010 04:16 pm (UTC)
We're voting it down to the top five, L.

Yeah, I know. So, um...same question.
Loiskalalanekent on July 1st, 2010 06:52 pm (UTC)
Anissa here - You can only vote for one in each category. The survey won't let you choose more than one. At the end of the voting, the five with the most votes will be on the final ballot.
