To cast your vote, read the rules here.
- Current Mood: ecstatic
We have some very fierce competition in Drarry, Snermione, Sirius Black, and Rare Pairs ships. Can't wait to see how that turns out!
- Voting closes on midnight PST (Pacific Standard Time) on the 31st of December. Get all your votes in before then.
- Vote only for the Ships and Categories that interest you. You don't have to vote for everything, unless you want to.
- You don't have to put forward all of your votes at once. Space out your votes, if you need to (one Category this week, three next week, four more tomorrow).
- No take-backs or do-overs. Once you cast your votes, they're locked in. Comprehend and amend before you hit SEND.
- Don't vote for yourself if your fic is nominated. Gag. Gross. Bad form. Don't do it.
- Please read all of the stories in a Category before you vote. We can't force you to do this, obvi, but we'd really like this awards ceremony to not be a popularity contest, and more a contest about skill, hard work, and dedication to the fandom. Help us make it as objective and fair a ceremony for the fans and the authors as possible.
- No cheaters allowed! Don't try to fool us by voting under different email addresses/LJ accounts. That's unfair and wrong, and we're keeping track of every vote in a spreadsheet - including who voted for what. If we catch you cheating, you're banned from the awards for life. Don't make us become Blue Meanies.
Good luck to all nominees!
