Nominee Banners  
We would like to offer ALL our wonderful nominees the chance to advertise the success of their fic and encourage their fans to vote with the use of banners. Post the banner on your LJ, on message board posts, or wherever you would like to show off your status as a nominee.

Congrats to all the nominees and best of luck throughout the voting process!

You will find all banners for nominees at SMVA2's Photobucket Album. Browse through the album and take whichever banner(s) you need. (NOTE: Please right-click/save the banners to your computers, then host them at your own personal online albums. We don't want the bandwidth on this account drained! If you don't have or know of a place to host images, try Photobucket, ImageShack, or TinyPic...they're all free and easy to use! THANKS!)

EXAMPLE BANNER:



TO ADD YOUR BANNER TO YOUR LJ PROFILE, OR AS AN IMAGE IN MESSAGE BOARD POSTS, ETC. USE THE FOLLOWING CODE:

<a href="http://community.livejournal.com/supes_mv_awards/12848.html" target="_blank"><img src="your_banner_url_here.jpg" border="0" alt="VOTE NOW!"></a>


Remember to replace your_banner_url_here.jpg with the URL of your banner image!

Hee!! These are such awesome banners! \O/

Thank you so much for all the hard work that went into making one for EVERY NOMMED FIC! ^____^

*hugs tight*

You're welcome! XD

Now to make the winner banners... O.o
saavikam77: Clark Jimmy Photosaavikam77 on July 5th, 2010 03:55 pm (UTC)
Gah, and all those have to be finished between the time the ballot closes and when the winners are posted the next day! O_O At least the ballot closes at 9 PM your time (I think).

*lends you extra energy*
januaried: emote + tiredjanuaried on July 5th, 2010 03:57 pm (UTC)
Well, I've got a week or so to make the base ones, right? It'll just be adding names and titles, like the nom banners. Of which there are 187 total. *falls over*

Thanks, bb! <3

Two weeks! \O/ There's that at least. :p

I think that it's taken more than a day in the past to churn out the winning banners. Would have to check, but I seem to remember seeing the phrase "by the end of the month" somewhere in previous postings.

It would be very nice, of course, to have them sooner, but this is something we can proudly display for a long time.

*sneaks in just before getting a shower*

Don't worry, bb! We'll brainstorm. I'm sure we have some projects that we set aside that would make AWESOME winner's banners. :D I'll try to sneak in before work, but we'll start planning tomorrow.

Don't panic. I got this.

Ohh, nice!! *grabby hands*

Thank you, these are awesome!:D

Thanks, bb! :D

Just one more note, as I was going through the banners to grab mine; Hendrick in Underground was ineligible this year for Best Villain, since it won in '08, and I didn't get a banner for Brad in Victory Celebration/Better This Way for the same category.

*big bambi eyes* ~O_O~
saavikam77: Clark Jimmy Photosaavikam77 on July 5th, 2010 04:27 pm (UTC)
And Sheer Will was nommed in/eligible for Best Ficlet, not Best Super-Short, since it was over 500 w.

*snugs*
januaried: + SMVAjanuaried on July 5th, 2010 04:31 pm (UTC)
Deleted it for Super-Short... Wait, so it's not in either category? *scratches head, reads again* OH! You meant nommed in (and) eligible for, not ineligible. *sporfle* Adding it now.

saavikam77: Clois Officesaavikam77 on July 5th, 2010 04:38 pm (UTC)
I just sent you an email with the full list of final total noms. I'm totally headdesking over not making sure you had it. :p

Thanks, hon!!
januaried: + SMVAjanuaried on July 5th, 2010 04:30 pm (UTC)
Whoops! Thanks for your sharp eye! Deleted Hendrick and added Brad (same filename, so it may take Photobucket a while to realize it should refresh it, but it's the right one now).
saavikam77: Clois Happysaavikam77 on July 5th, 2010 04:39 pm (UTC)
Gratsi!! ^___^
dandellodandello on July 6th, 2010 01:20 am (UTC)
Awesome!! But - could you send me one that isn't filled out for the BigApricot? (One that says SMVA 2010 Nominee and one that says SMVA 2010 Winner would be wonderful.) That way I can tag the stories that are hosted over there.

Thank You.
januaried: + SMVAjanuaried on July 6th, 2010 02:15 pm (UTC)
Um, I'm honestly not sure what you're asking here. I don't know what the banners being "filled out for the BigApricot" means, either. Do you want a blank, without author, title, or specific category?

Also, I haven't worked on what winner banners will look like yet so you'll have to wait on that, sorry. :P
dandellodandello on July 6th, 2010 05:02 pm (UTC)
One that just has Nominee 2010 - That way I don't have to code every nominated story for their name and category until the winners come out.
januaried: + SMVAjanuaried on July 6th, 2010 05:19 pm (UTC)
After consulting Lois and finally realizing what you're talking about (not least that you're not talking about redoing every banner for a different site)...here's one that should work. And FYI, not all of us go to forums and sites off LJ. Sorry for overreacting, but your assumption that I know what you want for a site I've never heard of hit a nerve.





Edit: I forgot the Winner banner isn't going to be the same as the nominee banner. You might have to remind me in a week or so.

dandellodandello on July 6th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
Thanks. And I will.
Ashley: SV | lane&kentstarrylites on July 6th, 2010 06:33 am (UTC)
Laurel, you are awesome and have more patience than I do. Just doing the winner banners for SV awards last year about killed me and my eyes.

Anyway, you are awesome. I am taking my banners now.

Couple minor things

http://s883.photobucket.com/albums/ac38/smva2/2010/Nominees/?action=view¤t=nominee_genre_fluff_09.jpg
Fic name is right, category is right, but you've got Christy's username instead of mine.

http://s883.photobucket.com/albums/ac38/smva2/2010/Nominees/?action=view¤t=nominee_length_short_01.jpg
I'm afraid I wasn't nominated, nor is this fic even elligible for this category. So I don't know if someone else got missed or if I just got an extra.
Anissa Roy: Supermananissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:54 am (UTC)
She's gone to bed, but I'm sure it will be fixed in the morning. Fortunately these are easy to fix.
januaried: + SMVAjanuaried on July 6th, 2010 02:08 pm (UTC)
The first one is fixed. Sorry again!

I'm not sure about the second one - that's on the final list of nominees. I'll ask Ella.
Anissa Roy: Squeeanissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:50 am (UTC)
OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Laurel, you are teh awesome. These are beautiful! I'm gonna save 'em to my photobucket and start displaying them.

*hugs and smooches* Thanks so much for all your hard work, babe. I do appreciate it.
januaried: emote + lovejanuaried on July 6th, 2010 02:12 pm (UTC)
You are very welcome. :D
Anissa Royanissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 07:24 am (UTC)
I just saw something - under "Best Description", it should be "Heirs to the House of El", not a specific chapter. That category was for techniques in the fic as a whole, not part of the Moments categories.

*facepalm* I keep forgetting things. "This Strange Effect" for best love scene should be credited to me and Lois, not just her. It's wrong on the awards list too. Not a big deal, but if it's convenient for you to fix it, please do. I'll make sure it's correct everywhere else, but I can't change the actual ballot. Darn it.

Fixed and fixed! Sorry about those. <3
Anissa Royanissa7118 on July 6th, 2010 06:29 pm (UTC)
No biggie - this was a lot of work, accomplished very quickly, and it turned out beautiful. A couple minor glitches is all part of the process. *snuggles you more*
