EDIT - Please, don't use shorthand or nicknames for people. I don't know everyone on the site, nor do I know all of their nicknames ;).

The 40kOnline Forum Awards 2008.

See the above for the rules and specifics of the Forum Awards, and use the linked thread for general questions.

Make your nominations for the Best Writer [Fiction] here in this thread or through PMing me (though clearly title it so I can easily tell what it's about). The only limit is that you can not nominate the previous winner, which was in this case was Locarno.

Only one nomination per person please.

Nominees
  • Bluewpc [2]
  • FireMahSeaOttas' [3]

I know some of his work started last year and carried over into 2008, but still, with stories like Leptis, Empire of the Mind, the Daemon, and deeds of the dead, I'll have to nominate Bluewpc.

I think a few people have misunderstood the 'one vote per person' rule (especially in the board-specific nomination threads), so I'd just like to make it clear:

You can nominate one person per category, however you can not nominate the person who won it the previous year and you can not nominate yourself.

The 'one nomination per person' pertains only to each category, so you can't nominate two people for the same award. You can nominate someone for every award out there if you so wish (obviously not the same person though, as no-one is that active, not even Rasmus :P). You can also second/third/etc. someone who has already been nominated, although how many times someone has been nominated only comes into account if we have more than 8 nominees, in which case the ones with the most nominations go through.

Hope that clears things up.

FireMahSeaOttas or bluewpc, i'd say... though blue hasn't been seen for a loooooong time. I'd like to nominate FireMahSeaOttas, as - like someone else said - he's always snooping around, and when he comments in your work, he uses C+C, not 'you're crap, give it up', like a few others [guilty].

So yeah. I'll nominate FireMahSeaOttas. Now I expect a good speech if you win.

I haven't seen Bluewpc around lately either, but I thik I'll second his nomination.  FireMah SeaOttas' would also be a worthy candidate.  I was actually about to nominate Locarno, but I guess he can't win it twice in a row, *chuckles*.
