    Just so I understand the schedule correctly... nominations for the Best Humorous Character category are open Jan 21-24 with voting taking place Jan 25-29 alongside the Best Serious Character category, and nominations for Best Funniest Moment are open Feb 7-10 with voting taking place Feb 11-14 alongside the Best Monologue category? Am I correct? Just wanted to make sure when I'm scheduled to start the threads for the categories I'm responsible for.

    The nomination period is pretty short. This was hard for me to work with when submitting nominations. Especially on the more difficult categories, it took quite long to browse through threads, looking for illustrations. I think a lot of the busier people around here had the same problem. I believe this contributed to the difficulties encountered in gathering enough nominations, and the resulting conflict.

    The nomination-and-voting cycle also takes 8 days, as scheduled, causing it to get out of sync with the weeks. I think this is also a little less than ideal, since we are all habituated to a weekly rhythm of activities.

    My suggestion is to always allow Friday-Saturday-Sunday (forum time) for voting. Voting is easier than nominating, and that way you rope in the most participation, because weekends are busiest. You get 3 days to vote, but they're the high-traffic ones, and the ones when a lot of people have some leisure time. You could also use GMT for a standard...whichever standard is chosen, we should make it consistent for the whole contest.

    Meanwhile, allow nominations for a category to begin as soon as voting opens for the previous category. This will give people 7 days to collect their favorites and submit them. The overlap won't be a problem, since the voting and nominating activities are well-separated, and voting is simple compared to nominating. Plus, the first few days of nomination are mostly taken up by people getting a Round Tuit and racking their brains for what they can remember, anyway. :)  Another advantage is that there would be only one post needed for most contests - voting opens, nomination for next category opens.

    So, basically, you'd nominate from Friday to Thursday, then post the poll, and vote from Friday to Sunday. Meanwhile, Friday would begin nominations for the next category, and repeat.

    I feel that this 7-day repeating schedule would help the contest run smoothly and maintain good momentum.

    You still don't understand it, it seems. The only nominations that are going on at the moment are for Best Running Gag and Best Photography, and for both of those you need to PM your nominations to legotron123. You also can't nominate yourself, which has been said plenty of times in this thread.

    SHARKTIBOLT'S GUIDE TO NOMINATIONS

    Okay, first thing you need to know about nominations is you need to PM the person in charge of each specific category with your nomination. But you can't send them until it's time to send them, and for those times you should see the first post of the thread for the schedule.

    Second thing to know is what to title your PM. I would call it "Best Running Gag Nomination", or whatever nomination your sending, just so the person recieving the PM knows what the PM is for.

    Third, make sure to include the title of the comic and the person who makes it somewhere in your PM. A nomination is meaningless if it has no name or writer to go with it! I would include it near the top of the PM.

    Fourth, you must make sure to include examples from the comic you're nominating. To do this, you'll need to put in image links for an example update from that comic. Be sure to include a space, so the person accepting nominations can just copy and paste them into the voting thread, like so:

    http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/defender2222/401Mas.jpg[/ IMG]
    [IMG]http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/defender2222/402Mas.jpg[/ IMG]

    You can put the space anywhere you want, just make sure there's A space somewhere.

    Hopefully this will help people make some nominations, and if anyone feels there's something that could or should be included, let me know and I'll add it in. :)

    Simply what you do is you account for every nomination and organize them. Then start a new thread and scroll down all the way and you'll see a second "submit thread" button right above that it gives you a poll option click it off and set it for the number of nominations you have recieved. Note if one comic gets nominated twice or more it is considered one nomination, I say this just to avoid confusion. Afterwards you post the samples of the comics you have recieve so board members can look at them and judge for themselves for which they will vote. Then simply post the thread with the samples and poll option and also notw their is a limit that the poll will go to if that is the case(which will most likely not happen but still) than go by the earliest nominated and onwards if someone say nominated on the last day then they don't make the cut as opposed to someone who was nominated 2-3 days before or more. Hope this is clear for you if anymore questions ask me

    This is an example post for people in charge of nominations and polls

    (Name of Comic #1) - (Maker of Comic #1)

    (Include name of gag, character, etc. if necessary)

    [IMG]http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/defender2222/402Mas.jpg[/ IMG]

    (Name of Comic #2) - (Maker of Comic #2)

    (Include name of gag, character, etc. if necessary)

    [IMG]http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/defender2222/402Mas.jpg[/ IMG]

    (Name of Comic #3) - (Maker of Comic #3)

    (Include name of gag, character, etc. if necessary)

    [IMG]http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/defender2222/401Mas.jpg[/ IMG]
    [IMG]http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e26/defender2222/402Mas.jpg[/ IMG]

    .........................................................

    So that's the basic layout of a voting thread. But the people making the threads will also have to check off the include poll.

    For 'Poll Question', just write the name of the category the thread is for. So 'Running Gag' if it's the running gag vote.

    In each option, include the name of the comic and the maker of the comic (and the gag, character, etc. if necessary. So for example:

    Comic #1 - Maker - gag
    Comic #2 - Maker - gag

    And finally, include how many days you want to keep the voting open. Be sure to check the schedule in the first post to see when your poll is supposed to close. So if your poll starts on the 20th and ends on the 22nd, you have to put '2' in the Close Poll box.

    Hope this helps everyone who's accepting nominations. :)

    I do have a question. If I decided to help with nominations would the poll thread I have to create count towards my allotted two threads in this forum?
