I remember when I first ventured into this section. I’ll be honest, at first I was afraid of it, I was struck by how amazing everyone seemed and how awesome their writing was. Almost two years, endless RPs, and so many amazing friends later, that still hasn’t changed. I am still struck by the RPs and characters created by every member of this amazing cult- I mean family- and everyone has their own style that astounds me.
From amazing plot twists to beautifully crafted plots, from ideas to improve our section to characters who may as well be essays, from heartbreak to humor, each one of us brings something amazing to this section. Every RPer in this community makes up the community as a whole, which is a unique and amazing experience, one which lets us be our dramatic writer selves with no fear of judgement.
Everyone in this community has worked so hard on their own RPs, has been so wonderfully creative, has been one of the all-around best experiences a writer could have, and so the point of these awards is not to call anyone better than another, but rather to award every single person who devotes time from their life to be a a sister (or brother) in this crazy family of RPers. Every one of you deserves recognition for what you bring, because honestly, it’s amazing.
Wrapping up this slightly emotional rant, I am so absolutely honored to be able to bring all of you the second annual RP/SG Awards. The rules and nominations are below this. Nominations will close when I have enough per category.
Oh, and a special shoutout to @EpisodeGirl and @Mashia for helping inspire some new categories!
1. Every nomination must be for a recent RP/SG/player/character (well except for the inactive/dead categories). In this sense, recent can qualify as active sometime within the last twelve months to ensure all can participate.
The amount of nominations per category is specified in each form. This form is anonymous so we’ll be using the honor code- please stick to it and don’t nominate more than you’re allowed to. Only one nomination per category per person.
All troll nominations or nominations that do not follow the rules/complete the form in full will be ignored. Sarcastic nominations are alright to some extent, but do not attempt to overwhelm the awards with them or make them win- the point of these awards is recognition, not joking.
At some point, I will declare nominations CLOSED and the official voting will begin soon after that. Any category that doesn’t have enough nominations according to me will be cut out.
You can nominate something/someone you created, but please take into consideration other RPs/SGs as the point of these awards is to recognize others and not promo ourselves.
If you are unsure about anything (IE: If you wanted to nominate an RP but aren’t sure whether it would qualify as a romance or a drama, or if you don’t know what RP a character might be from, etc.) then be sure to PM me as soon as possible so I can help you as best as possible.
If you have any questions or need anything to be clarified, PM me. I would recommend nominating before the end of March so you can refer to the old forums for specific things. You may use either old forums usernames or new forums usernames.
Anyway, without further ado…
