I would think a slash story could be nominated for any category it fits in, regardless of whether or not it's slash.  Assuming it has some sort of actual plot outside of sex, it could be nominated for best drama, best romance, whatever would fit.  It doesn't need its own category; there isn't a category for Best Het.  Romance could be between anyone.

Exactly. Slash is not it's own genre. It's just a type of romance. So it shouldn't get it's own category.

I agree. Looking at the comments I totally see what you guys mean. Its nice to know that even people who don't like slash still think it can fit into other categories. It's almost a compliment to those of us who right it.

I probably sound really stupid asking this, but does it have to be stories written this year?  Because there are a few which I'd nominate which are a couple of years old and some which were started ages ago and not finished yet.  Just want to be sure before I send in my nominations :)

Def. not a stupid question-- I was planning on asking the same thing! LoL

I'm not sure if this was answered or not but no, it doesn't have to be stories written this year. You can go as far back as the site goes as long as the story didn't win the category you are nominating it for already. :)

When will the stories that make it to the next round be posted?

There is no next round. The nomination period closes on September 30th. After that, as long as there are at least three stories nominated in any given category, those stories will be posted for you to vote on. It probably won't happen right on the 30th though. We need to get them all organized and set up the voting first.

Which brings me to a reminder to send in those noms if you haven't already!

Speaking of which ... If you have already sent in your noms don't keep sending in more sheets! Everyone gets one nomination sheet not 12! Anything beyond one entry for each category won't be accepted ... It's not fair to everyone else

Oops - I only nominated in a few categories, but I think I nominated more than one entry for a couple of categories.  I didn't know that was a rule.  How do you decide which story gets the nomination?  Is there a limit to how many can be nominated in a category?

Yes, there is a maximum of 10 stories per category. Otherwise it ends up being a couple categories with 20+ entries and others with 3. So, just like in past years, we cap it at 10. Which is why we don't take multiple nomination sheets so that everyone gets a chance to put their favourites in, not just one person :)

If it's close like 13 or 14 in a category we'll let it slide, but when one person sends in 15 sheets all nominating different stories in the same category we can't take them all so we'll take the first one submitted, two if there's not many submissions in that category.

I wish I'd left mine longer too, I've left some blank when I could've read some more stories and nominated more.

You can still fill in the blanks.

I don't care if it takes you 15 emails to send in all of your noms because you haven't decided yet, but some people were sending 15 emails all nominating things in the same category and that we can't really have. But if you want to save some for later, feel free.
