Though may be true, we still need more nominations to put others into consideration. Of the current male writers we have are: Boomer Gonzales, Danjo3, Kiskaloo, Professor Voodoo, Maverick, and myself. Then there is Piero for his RPG works and a couple more that I cant remember at the moment. Among the group, the talent is great here. Gathering a nomination group should be easy. Voting for a winner should not be- as this is not a popularity contest but a contest of presentation and skill.

Sooo... dumb question time: can we nominate more than one author per person-per category?

Part of me wonders if, for categories such as this (with a limited number of possible nominations, not so much for the "best OC" or "best fic" type categories), it wouldn't just be easier to throw up all currently active/written something in the last year and let folks vote on it. Meh, maybe next-time... too late to be making suggestions now

Either way, I thought this one at least would be chock full of nominations by now....

IMO, people should nominate someone because they feel their work is worthy of the award and not just to "fill the field" so it's not a "one horse race".

Though with so many categories (and so few active people left to nominate them in), perhaps we should take rusty-spring's idea to heart and eliminate the various "Male" and "Female" categories and the various different types of artwork and stories and just have a few categories. That way, we end up with more nominees naturally and less votes needed to be taken.

I don't see why not.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that some streamlining would benefit the voting. It's not that I have anything against having tons of awards as a principle - Afterall, it'd be nice for everyone who contributes here on the forum to be recognized for their hard work.

However, with so many categories it's come to the point where if you're nominated there's a good chance you get the award simply because there's no one else in the category. In such a case, then the awards don't really mean much since simply a nomination is almost almost a win.

Sure, less people will get an award, but then the work that goes into them with be a little more special.

This whole thing is kind of ridicules. You get a nomination and two seconds and you win. Im a big fan of the Academy Awards, and I think they put a little more into it then that.

Fewer categories and open nominations (no seconding required) would be my choice, but this isn't my show...

But it is your show.
Let me explain. I have been thinking about the thoughts and opinions being said here. Last year, the GCAs was a semi big hit though delayed due to health issues on my end. I more than anyone want as much input as possible and have this as fair as possible for all involved.

If you think this should be uni-sex'd then decide on it and base it on an excellent argument that can not be shaken apart. Also decide if this should be for all categories or for just this one. I'm already thinking of extending the date because this is going so slow.

If you really wanted to simplify it, then just break it down as follows:

Best Author - Canon
Best Author - OC
Best Artist
2009 Forum Person of the Year

No male/female.
All based on what was done within the year 2009.

Seeing as how forum participation has been taking a nose dive, I think this is more then enough.

Now if you really wanted to take something this simple and complicate the hell out of it, you could put all of the nominations on a ballet, e-mail it to all of the forum members and tally up the results.

I endorse the 4 category system wholeheartedly. Especially the whole "male/female" stuff being lumped together.

I like what Danjo put up as categories. Though instead of two author
categories I'd simplify it to only one best author category, canon or
OC. And for those that have OCs to stick with a best OC category.

Is anyone here writing specifically just canon characters? I thought all of us had our OC's in the mix.

That being said, I think Danjo3 is on the right path. Less categories will hopefully sponsor more nominees and therefore encourage more people to vote.

Moreover,I think that we can and should nominate outside the forum's writer but in fanfiction.net. Still GSG writer.

Because I found that many stories that we don't know are full of talent.

In thinking about it, one person has been neglected and it high time this situation has been rectified...

For his outstanding work in the Alpha Series, Basic Necessities, and excellent input and editing of my stories, I nominate Boomer Gonz.

Without him, both SWA Beginnings: Francesca, and UN Resolution would be a lot more boring.
