The 2015 Aelyrian Awards: Nomination Voting!

 
The 2015 Aelyrian Awards
Nomination Round

There have been some changes to the rules this year, well one particular change. Please read the below list carefully, noting rules and time frames! Voting will not be dragged out for weeks on end here so please ensure that you get your votes in if you'd like to participate and acknowledge your peers!
  • You may NOT vote for yourself (your vote will not count if you do). These are awards to honor your peers, not yourself.
  • You may only submit your votes once, on one account.
  • Please submit your votes via the Help Desk.
  • There will be a round of nominations first, over the course of a week. Nominations will run through the 6th of December at 11:59pm EST.
  • After that, nominations will be compiled with the top 3 vote-getters for each category presented on the 7th of December for the final round of voting.
  • The final voting round will again last one week, ending on the 13th of December at 11:59pm EST.
  • Results will be announced on or around the 14th of December.
  • Voting round may be delayed due to the inevitability of RL so if that occurs please be patient. There will always be one week to vote from the posting.

To clarify "do not vote for yourself":

If you're voting yourself "Best Female" then you aren't counted. Plain and simple.

If you're voting for a thread you were in because you thoroughly enjoyed the plotline or another character's actions within that thread, then awesome you can do it!

I don't read a whole lot of threads that I'm not in so I don't expect people to have to vote for threads that they themselves don't participate in, so there's that.

We've just had a lot of people pat themselves over the backs in the PC categories the last few years, which is really lame and silly. We're over that! Give kudos to the PCs around you but feel free to raise up the threads you've enjoyed.

Also, please only post nomination ballots that are ready to be tallied in the Help Desk. Do NOT post your incomplete ballots with a note that you just need somewhere to keep it while you figure out your votes. You can keep it in your User CP, your own email or save it to your desktop. It becomes confusing to see things that are incomplete waiting to be tallied.

So just don't do it.

One more day left to vote, guys!

Make note: the top 3 vote getters in each category will be the ones you will be voting on, so if you want to see your favorites in the final vote, make sure you vote!

We've received a bunch of nominations so far--some really great kudos towards our players--but we know there's more of you out there!
