Announcing the Sheppard/Weir Fan Awards
for fanfics and Art/Vids this summer.
I don't have much planned at this point, but what I do need right now is volunteers. Lots and lots of volunteers, who will be willing to dedicate a portion of their time to helping get this thing off the groud.
Volunteers will be people who review nominations, contact authors, pimp, count votes, help with any behind-the-scenes stuff, etc... Join/Watch the community for further info. Drop a comment here on what type of help you'll be willing to offer. I especially need people with web-design skills, or people who have formally helped with Awards systems before, but if you're a newbie like me to the idea, you're more than welcome here!
Oh, and yes, since I am head Mod, I'll be disqualifying my own fics for the awards. I've been getting conflicting advice regarding whether to apply this rule to all volunteers that end up counting the votes, but I've decided that as long as the volunteer does not count votes in a catagory for which he/she is nominated, it's okay. I'll be diligent about assigning groups that way. So, if you volunteer for this, you will NOT be disqualified from being nominated. Unless you willingly choose so, like me. ;)
