    We are NOT handling nominations for specific comics in this thread. Each will have it's own thread. It's too chaotic and messy to try to handle this all in a single thread.

    We are now in the voting stages of: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...tfw-funnies-awards-best-new-comic-2009-a.html

    Also, we are now in the submission/nomination stages for Best Serious Comic. If you've sent me a submission prior to 3/2/2010, please resent the submission. And as always, review the guidelines.

    Closed voting threads:

    PLEASE READ THE GUIDELINES

    1) Yes, you're encouraged to submit your own.
    2) Send send submission/nomination to me via Private Message.
    3) Submission/nominations must include the actual entry image links for me to put into the voting thread.
    4) Once your submission is sent to me, make a post in this thread (without indicating who or what was submitted) so I can have a double-check that I've received every entry that I should have.
    5) Submissions are open for 72 hours.
    6) Entries will be closed 72 hours to gather your submission.
    7) Make sure the entry is from 2009!

    I'd be extra grateful if I could get the submission in this format:

    <Comic Name Here> - <Name of Submission Here> - <Comic Author Here>

    It will give me more time to make sure entries actually qualify and such.



    All,

    I wanted to take that discussion out of the reviews thread. I want more brainstorming ideas. I'll take the lead on organizing it, but ultimately majority will rule as to how we'll make this work.

    Master Category List
    * Best Fight Scene (Done)
    * Funniest Moment (Done)
    * Best Running Gag (Done)
    * Most Epic Frame (Done)
    * Most Random Moment (Done)
    * Best Inner Monologue (Done)
    * Best Dialogue (Done)
    * Most Developed Character (Done)
    * Best Effect Technique (Done)
    * Best Cameo/Collaboration (Done)
    * Best Set Design (Done)
    * Best Photography (Done)
    * Best Toy Posing (Done)

    We'll save these three for when the more specific categories are finalized and voted on.

    * Best Serious Comic
    * Best Funny Comic
    * Best Comic Story
    * Best New Photocomic of 2009 (Done)

    Dunno if the award categories have been finalized but here are a few that might be meaningful:

    -Best toy line crossover
    -Best cameo
    -Best collaboration
    -Best motivational poster scene

    Here's a few suggestions for Funnies Award categories:

    Best Serious Comic -- might be difficult to vote on this one, since there's so many great serious comics here
    Best Funny Comic -- in other words, the best of the more comedic comics on here
    Best Comic Story -- as in, which comic has the best story

    Ok, I will close the categories out for now. I trimmed some that were either redundant or too minor to spend time on (as in, there wouldn't be many substantial entries).

    If that's supposed to be me, then you just hit the spot right there :lol 

    Seems you're off to a good start and obviously put ALOT of time and thought into this, much room for improvement but I'm sure you'll handle it quite well :) 

    I wondering if there's a reward for "Best Insane Character" or any type of character (supporting, lead/main, funny, redshirt type, etc)
    If so, I vote for my Insaniac :p  but that's for later

    Anyway, let the competition begin!!
    And I hope that this doesn't spark any ill-intentions between the comic makers, we're all winners here and I hope we all will be winners in the listed categories :)

    I don't have a problem with this. I'll be interested to see submissions and see what everyone thinks.

    I don't really want to clutter up the forum with a lot of non-comic threads, so how were you thinking about organizing this? I saw at the top that you didn't want to do this all in one thread, but if there are too many things get pushed back to page two or three and people's updates might get missed. What kind of plan did you have in mind?

    Excellent point made
    The easiest logical answer U thought of is just post a reward post in that persons comic + update the first page of this thread (or the actual discussion thread) with award type, person(s) who won it followed by the name of the comic, then the date of said appointed award, like so:

    1st *award type* Award went to *person's name* *comic name* (dd/mm/yyyy)

    Should keep things nice a tidy

    In the other thread, I'd mentioned I wanted to avoid forum clutter such as that by doing one controlled poll thread at a time. Then I would humbly grovel to a moderator to lock the polling thread to prevent it from being bumped from here to infinity. :) 

    OR I have a better idea. We can confine it all to this thread, but I'll use an external method (i.e. not on TFW) to control announcing the nominees, polling/voting, and tabulating results and link to it in the first post of this thread. The only real reason I wanted to use the forums is because it makes an event out of each category.

    I'm totally bendable, so if there's a preference, I'll do it anyway possible.

    Okay, so right now you've got 11 categories:

    Master Category List
    * Best Fight Scene
    * Best Running Gag
    * Funniest Moment
    * Most Random Moment
    * Most Epic Frame
    * Best Inner Monologue
    * Best Dialogue
    * Most Developed Character
    * Best Effect Technique
    * Best Cameo
    * Best Collaboration

    So what we could possibly do is pin a thread pertaining to each one, or possibly two categories, and set it up as a poll, and give everyone a short amount of time to vote. Once the voting is done, I'll unsticky it and put the next one up. If you want to handle setting up the thread, I'll sticky it to the top to prevent bumping.

    How does this sound? I think, given the large number of categories, that we would want to keep the polling time for each short to keep this from dragging out for months.

    Perfect!

    Yeah, I gave the first category 72 hours for nominations/submissions. I figured the same amount of time would be good for actual voting.

    This is similar to an idea I had. But it never came to be.
