Hey guys! I have an update here for anyone interested (which, you know, if you want to get technical, should be everyone nominated). :)

Voting polls  are up and waiting votes! Please vote in every category. You can only vote once! I don't really care if you vote for youself cause I'm not gonna be able to tell if you did.

Also, the final question is an opinion poll. Next year, instead of having the MMPR-PRJF (JF being next seasons title), should we have more overall categories such as Best Slash, Best Femslash, Best Kiss, Best NC-17 Fic, Best In Character Fic, etc? I'm considering this because every year, without fail, I have issues getting nominees for MMPR-PRLG (& WF). Case in point; Dagmar Buse, who is an awesome author, is the/a writer of 3 out the 5 MMPR fics nominated. And several others were double nominated in categories too. So let me know what you think. Should we keep it as it is (with MMPR-PRJF) or come up with more over-arching categories?

That said....

Happy Voting!

Commenting here...

Regarding the changing of the categories. I'm commenting here because I think it's more than a yes or no answer.

In a way, yeah, it might be good to change from season specific categories to overall ones. I only know one author who recently wrote in LG. And while I personally have fic plans that'll cross pretty much every season, I know WF and LR are pretty low on writers too.

Though maybe consider changing the rules to recent fics only then? Like if it's written within the last 2 years, it's eligable for nomination.

And possibly reconsider the max number of nominees for certain categories. Femslash is a very small one, but male slash has a lot more to work with, and het even more so.

Re: Commenting here...

Those are all good points. The thing I'm worried about is next year there will be new rules and the 2 year one will be a new one. This will give me headdaches though cause, seriously, how many of the current writers still write MMPR? Almost every fic nominated for MMPR-PRLG are from the old school writers, the first PR writers who don't write a whole lot any more. So what does everyone else think?

Bah, sorry. What I meant was:

If you get rid of the "best LR, best, MMPR" type categories and switch it to things like best kiss, you *should* add a two year rule.
