I like Mel's point about not including stories that were nominated last year, or at least last year's winners, unless the story was not finished then and is finished or further along now (a.k.a. not exactly the same thing it was last year).

One thing I got tired of back in the day of all the awards sites was seeing the same stories nominated in the same categories year after year.  It just got so old and stale.  I think it would help to keep the awards fresh and also spotlight some newer authors or newer stories if we only allowed stories that weren't nominated or didn't win as finished stories last year.  Those stories had their moment of glory... time to let other stories try for it.

I'm leaning towards saying that you can't be nominated in the same category for the same story again.

That sounds fair.

I can totally agree with that. It would allow for newer stories a chance at recognition!

Maybe we can also include a New authors and a new story category for people who have only written one story?

Sounds fair to me.

That you couldn't nominate yourself & that it was fun.

Um...I'm not sure. I can't remember all of it - lol.
