Dwim's Amnesty Numenor Ballot Posted by dwimmer\_laik November 01, 2004 - 0:00:08 Topic ID# 2624
N1: Aglarrama by Zimraphel

This gave me a bit of a shiver, knowing what lies ahead for Númenor,
and for the ordinary people like the shipwright, who don't really know
the state of affairs. They just wish to live their lives, tend to
their crafts and their families, and be left more or less at peace.
There's a real life parallel in there somewhere, I'm thinking... In
any case, I enjoyed this glimpse into the last days of Númenor.


N3: Confessions of a Queen Downfallen by Jen Littlebottom

Disturbing, and yet very plausible. I found it interesting that the
author did not take the easy way out and make Miriel the wholly
unwilling victim, but that she found some fault in her own surrender
to Pharazon. We know so little of Miriel, and yet it seems very likely
she might have gone mad eventually, or at least played it,
Hamlet-like, but to an even more fruitless end, perhaps, than our
favorite Danish prince.

Apology for not cutting (Was: RE: [MEFAwards] Men -- Official Votin Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 01, 2004 - 0:02:16 Topic ID# 2625
But if I'd tried, I wouldn't have gotten it posted in time. As it was I
found a Humor ballot waiting to be sent (in that hopes that I'd read that
one last story I wanted to) and barely got it sent when the clock said 12:00
on the dot.

Whew! That was fun.

I read and I read and I read, and I still didn't get to half my list.
Numenor, Hobbits, and Romance had a lot of stories on it that I just
didn't manage to read at all; I couldn't even get to "The Hobbit" or
Mystery or Horror, and the list of fics on my Amnesty list was never
touched. Long stories were out of luck most of the time unless I'd
already read them.

:-S

Nevertheless, I did read quite a few new fics for which I am grateful.

Thanks for organizing this, Ainae. Thanks to all the other
foolish--er, generous souls who have been vote-counters and
moderators, and thank you very much to all who commented on any of my
stories. I'm afraid any personal notes of thanks will have to wait
either until Christmas.

Voting Season is officially over! Posted by ainaechoiriel November 01, 2004 - 0:10:15 Topic ID# 2628
Quite a rush there at the end, huh?

Well, we'll count any votes that were posted between Oct.1st and
12:00 Nov. 1st. If a time-stamp on the vote shows 12:01, well, that's
just missed it. But that was fun at the end. We got quite a slew of
votes, and needless to say, I'm behind in my counting. I was trying
to read! Heck, I got behind in everything. I even forgot to pay my
cell phone bill. Ooops.

I'll take care of that tomorrow.

And I'll catch up with the counting tomorrow. As for needing more
counters, well, we may not. Let me get a head count from the Staff
group and see how we stand. I'll send out a call for help here if we
need more counters. Most of the regular counters have volunteered to
count the Amnesty Day votes as well.

And before I go to bed tonight, I'll post the polls for the banner
FanArt contest! I hope. What is 16 x 3 anyway? It may take me
awhile. ;-)

Thanks for all your participate, even you lurkers! We'll do our best
to have the results out by Nov. 15th, and then we'll begin a Post
Mortem where we discuss what worked, what didn't, and what we may
want to do differently next year.

I know that feeling. Just looking over the list of Elves nominees...
well, I now know several stories I will be reading in the near future.
But time is a limited commodity... :-/

What she said. I have discovered many new writers, especially in the
hobbit corner of the fandom - despite my interest in that race, I
hadn't touched the wealth available, and SilverMoonLady and Lindelea
are both on my list to investigate in the future - as are several by
JoDancingTree that I didn't even know she had written.

I'm also very thankful, as an author, for the many people who have
commented. Several people have read and apparently liked my stories,
who I had never talked to before. ThunderaTiger, your name jumps to
mind, and I'm glad we've gotten to know each other a bit better. But
there are many others.

If I haven't thanked you yet and you commented on my things, I will.
Soon. I really do appreciate all the comments.

Hear, hear! (Hear what?) Ainae, I have several suggestions (it's the
beta reader in me), and will share them when you're ready to do a post
mortem, but I think the awards have been very successful for a first
year. Thank you for all your hard work, and I'm only sorry RL forced
me to cut back on the amount of helping out I could do.

1) The URL has a space in it that shouldn't be there. I can't edit
it though without losing the votes we already have and it wouldn't
stick anyway. Yahoo is putting it in.

All banner URLs begin with:
http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/banners....

2) Watch the numbers. Some of them got switched around by Yahoo.

3) I put in one too many for the Bilbo Baggins award. There are only
3 banners so please do not vote for Bilbo Baggings #4

I'll let you know if I find anything else. I'm working my way up from
the bottom with my votes right now.

Hi all.

There are 18 banners in the Lorien section and only 17 choices.

Whew! Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 01, 2004 - 1:34:39 Topic ID# 2681
Well, it's past my bedtime, and I've got quite a backache after posting all
those polls. So I'm calling it quits for the evening and will play catch up
on the morrow!

Dobrou Noc!

It wasn't, which is a very good thing because it is in dire need of major
revision.

You'll have to go to the home page to get to them.

Log into yahoo.

Type in

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MEFAwards/

That will take you to the group's home page.

Polls is about halfway down the menu on the left. Then just click on each
individual poll you want to vote in.

Please disregard these. I meant to send them to the Staff group. (But hey,
gives you a behind-the-scenes look at how we're doing this, so I might as
well take advantage of this:

As you can see, each story has three counters and we will make sure that all
three counts match. So, if there is a discrepancy, the counters post a
breakdown, and we try to find where the discrepancy is. Then we correct
it.)

Probably, just take this over to the Staff group.

Not that we have anything to hide. Just that it's probably somewhat boring
for everyoen else. Or it will be if we post too many of these things here.

Problems with FanArt Award Banners Posted by elanor of aquitania November 05, 2004 - 5:44:44 Topic ID# 2695
Hi all,
I went through the voting for the banners.

I saw many, many different designs for the banners.

I tried to choose for each category
banners which show per category a common design.
That was often not possible.

Though I did not make one single banner
(I thank all the artists for their work !)
I would like to propose for next time
to pre-set standards for all banners.
It looks now more like a hotchpotch of very different styles.
Often there is even in one category not one set of three banners
in a common design to be found.

I think, it would make a better impression
if MEFAwards had a common design framework
for all the different banners as to facilitate the
recognition of MEFAwards and the various placements.

And these standards should be polled IMO:
0) a standard for height times width
1) character-type of script

OK, the standard height x width is for me paramount.

For me also the citation of the category is very important.
I for instance do not know what the "Shadow of Cuivienen" is
and that this has anything to do with Mystery.

Also now for non-expert readers nothing reveals
that "Cuivienen" is first place
and "barrow weights" is third place.
Therefore, I would prefer that a certain frame colour
assigns the placement and/or
that the placement is stated on the banner.

Frames I feel to be important as it is very difficult
to place the script in a standard set pattern
on very different pictures.

With a common set of rules
very different artists could deliver a more
congruent set of banners.

The banners will appear probably at various websites
and there in the alien surrounding it should also
become clear what the banner represents.
In this case not even a certain colour frame
transports enough information to tell the
visitor that the story achieved the third place in
the MEFAwards mystery category 2004.

I write this now before the analysis
announced to take place after all the polls
because I have just seen the problems
and they still crowd my mind.

Best wishes Elanor

(please bear with me, this is the first time I take part
in a banner award voting, so I am perhaps unusually surprised
by the very incongruous banners)

that elanor has brought it up ;) ...

If you think it would help clarify things, I would be
willing to take whichever banners win, open them in
Photoshop, and add a narrow bar at the bottom, saying
which place and category (or subcategory) the award
represents. I don't think a simple black (or
colormatched) bar would take anything away from most
of the designs, and the extra information seems like
it would be helpful. Just let me know, Ainae, if you
want to do this.

Regarding strict limits on the banners submissions
themselves next year, I'll save my opinions for a
contest post-mortem. :)

>Hi all,
>I went through the voting for the banners.

>I saw many, many different designs for the banners.

banners which show per category a common design.
That was often not possible.

Vote for whichever single banner you like best. If you can't do that for a
particular award, just don't vote for that one.

>Though I did not make one single banner
(I thank all the artists for their work !) I would like to propose for next
time to pre-set standards for all banners.
It looks now more like a hotchpotch of very different styles.
Often there is even in one category not one set of three banners in a common
design to be found.

>I think, it would make a better impression if MEFAwards had a common design
framework for all the different banners as to facilitate the recognition of
MEFAwards and the various placements.

>And these standards should be polled IMO:
0) a standard for height times width

A definite. We tried to do this after-the-fact this year as Yahoo was
blowing them up so I'd have to shrink them again. Next year, we will have
better guidelines on size, though I don't think they will be as strick as
that. More like minimums and maximums.

No

No.

No.

>OK, the standard height x width is for me paramount.

That one I could live with.

>Also now for non-expert readers nothing reveals that "Cuivienen" is first
place and "barrow weights" is third place.

and/or that the placement is stated on the banner.

No. Though 1st, 2nd, and 3rd could be stated in text.

>Frames I feel to be important as it is very difficult to place the script
in a standard set pattern on very different pictures.

Thus the script should fit the picture. Pictures are different. I would
want a pretty script for a picture of Eowyn as a princess. But not for a
picture as a warrior about to kill the Witch King.

>With a common set of rules
very different artists could deliver a more congruent set of banners.

But less would do so. Why? Because your suggestions would so stifle
creativity as to take all the fun right out of it. I made a LOT of those
banners. And I didn't think of myself as an artist or one who could do it
at all. But once I did, I found it was fun. I found lots of different pics
from the films. Some were brightly colored, some were dark, some were just
portraits that I put together with symbols or matched with other portraits.
And then other people posted banners that were completely different. They
had four pics of the same person. Or had really interesting shadowy text in
the background, etc. It's creativity, Elanor.

If I was more concerned with a congruent set of banners, we wouldn't have
made a contest of it at all. We would have just made one banner for each
award and said, "here you go!".

As I said about the fanfic contest, we will have a post mortem to discuss
what worked, and what didn't and what can be approved. And we can do the
same with the banners. But like I said for the fanfic contest, there are
some things for which I will not budge. These awards, for example, will
NEVER move from the comment-based voting. And I will not stifle the
creativity of the banners. I'd even like to open up to a more formal fanart
contest where people submit drawings and such (not banners) and members vote
on them (comment based or simple vote?).

>The banners will appear probably at various websites and there in the alien

In this case not even a certain colour frame transports enough information
to tell the visitor that the story achieved the third place in the MEFAwards
mystery category 2004.

We may do what Viv suggests and put a black banner underneath with the
category (if it's not already on the banner, as some of them do have that
info) and the placement. I originally didn't think that information was
completely necessary. I like the idea that someone whose interest is piqued
by the Shadows of Cuivienen Award might click on the banner and follow the
link to find out what the MEFAs are. And then they might join and
participate the next year.

Besides, what does it matter if the three banners match for the three awards
in each category unless the stories that win them are all on the same page,
let alone the same site? They will likely not appear side-by-side anywhere
but here.

>I write this now before the analysis

>Best wishes Elanor

>(please bear with me, this is the first time I take part in a banner award

It's, as far as I know, the first time for everyone as I've not seen this
done anywhere before. (They don't even do it for the Alt.StarTrek.Awards,
from which I borrowed heavily for the fanfic awards.) I just thought it
would be a fun way for some artistic folks to express themselves in these
awards. But like the fanfic awards' first priority is feedback and
competition is secondary, I see the banner contest as having a first
priority of presenting the basic information in a creative way. Matching
across categories or representing the MEFAs in any formal way is secondary.

And this is enough of this discussion for now. Any more, save it for the
post-mortem.

Well, I read and read and read, and according to my spreadsheet had
comments for more than 300 nominations! Wow. Still, I didn't get to
all I wanted, and I had to really scramble during Voting Season. What
have I learned: I need to use Reading Season better! I think I only
read a handful of Elves stories in those 2 1/2 months. I'm glad to
say I did get to a few of the long stories I wanted to, though a few
still sit on my Want-to-Read list. Thankfully, a few of those were
WIPs so I'll hopefully be getting another chance.

> Nevertheless, I did read quite a few new fics for which I am

Me, too, and some which I wouldn't have thought I'd enjoy! I am
always surprised by some at Awards time.

You're welcome, and in Alt.StarTrek.Creative circles we call them the
insufficiently reluctant. I've been insufficiently reluctant for
quite some time as I've served as the DS9 SOS Maintainer (keeps track
of DS9 stories posted each year) for more than 4 years I think, and
I've even been a vote counter once for ASC.

>and thank you very much to all who commented on any of my

My thanks, too! I have marked each post with comments on my stories
and I intend to save them as I do with all my feedback (I have an
Access database! Yes, I'm a computer geek!) and reply to them
individually. I do appreciate them very much, I've just been so busy
of late, reading and trying very hard to get my comments posted by
midnight...and then preoccupied with counting and voting and watching
the election returns and then.... (e-mail me privately if you want to
know the rest of that. We won't go into politics here.)

I have been very glad with the results (of the big picture here) of
these Awards. We didn't have a huge membership starting out, but
it's the first year. We may have more next year, when good word gets
out. (hint, hint). And we had over 30 commenters, I think. I asked
the ASC-Virtual Staff Offices (We're silly over there. We have our
own offices and floor plans and daily cookies and everything. All
virtually, of course.) and they didn't have actual stats, but felt
that they had a core of voters that vote on just about every category
with a smaller number of other voters that just vote here or there,
so I think percentage-wise of voters to members, we did pretty well.
Though, of course, I hope more will put their votes in next year now
that they've seen how we do it.

On the whole, I am very happy with how these awards came out and
think they have been a success in their first year. Good luck to all
the nominees. We are still getting some of our counts in (three per
category after all) so we haven't nailed down every winner yet, but
we are definitely on schedule to do so by Nov. 15th. And remember
that our counting process is an open one. Anyone can view the
Archive of the MEFAStaff group and see our correspondences. The
three counts per category keep us accurate and protect the integrity
of the vote counting. So have no fears in that regard! And in the
end, you find you didn't receive an award, I hope you can at least
walk away happy with your comments, as almost every story got at
least one comment.

Well done, everyone! And thanks!

Thanks! And I welcome those suggestions when the time comes. Just as
long as the "sacred" parts remain (comment-based, etc.). There are
bound to be changes. I've even got a few myself. Faramir is awfully
angsty, isn't he....

Oh, hey, if anyone knows about RL, I do. I'm still working with the
neurologist to find out why I have aphasic moments after all.
Sometimes you just have to cut back. I'll be the first to tell
anyone that. Don't let stress damage your brain! Cut back before
that happens if you're heading that way.

Anyway, yes, I think it was a success and I'm looking forward to the
results and then finding more stories to nominate next year!

Vote Counter Volunteers now needed! Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 09, 2004 - 23:35:30 Topic ID# 2722
One or two of you volunteered to help if we needed it. Well, we do. Khazar
has lost her counts and we need to count her categories again. While
Thundera may be bored and Larian and I have obsessive/compulsive tendancies,
there are some we can't count (because we are already assigned there). We
have saved every comment (we hope) in a spreadsheet that I will upload to
the files section tonight so it won't be hard to find the comments to count
them.

So, any volunteers? Let me know and I'll send you an invitation to the
staff group.

Hi Ainaechoiriel,
I could start counting this evening,
if that is early enough,
and further again only in the following
evenings when the children are in bed.

You can look at my last votes to check if I counted correctly.

I live in Europe so there is a time interval of 6 or 7 hours
between our daily schedules.

Best wishes Elanor

Thank you. I have to go back and see what I can salvage. I wish he had left
everything alone, but he tries to help. Ever hear about that pathway to hell?

khazar
Oh, dear. Okay, we'll take care of it. Thundera is sick and bored and Larian
and I have obsessive/compulsive tendancies. ;-)

Help!

Alcanazar decided to "clean" my email while I've been sick, and he has
deleted all sorts of stuff- like my categories. And I can't find the
ballots.

I feel truly idiotic right now. If it would be better to reassign the
categories, I will understand, given the lateness of the hour.

Banner Contest Reminder: 2 days left! Posted by ainaechoiriel November 12, 2004 - 14:44:59 Topic ID# 2730
We have 164 members and still less than 20 have voted on the banner
contest. Just in case you aren't aware, the banner polls will
determine which banner goes with which award. The winners of both
the fanfic contest and the banner contest will be announced on
Monday, hopefully just after midnight.

some awards have as many as a dozen or more banners to choose from,
so hurry over to the polls section and vote on your favorites, or
else only a small handful of us will have chosen them for the whole
group.

Contest Status Update Posted by ainaechoiriel November 12, 2004 - 16:05:05 Topic ID# 2731
If we break all 16 main categories into Author and Story, we get 32.
22 of those are finished, all votes counted 3 times, all
discrepancies worked out, and all ties broken. 9 of the remaining 10
have 2 counts in. 1 has only 1 count in. We should have no probably
getting those last ten by Sunday night. If one of the original
counters assigned to a category needs help, there are a few of us
very insufficiently reluctant staffers who will pick them up,
provided we aren't one of the original three assignees. (As always,
each vote must be counted by 3 different people to ensure integrity
and accuracy.) Khazar-Khum was ill and then lost her files, and we
hardy few picked up all 6 of her categories and had them counted
before the day was done. So rest assured, we WILL announce the
winners on Monday. And then I have a surprise up my sleeve for
everyone.....

(Oh, and insufficient reluctance is a term I got from
Alt.StarTrek.Creative. Anyone who has ever been on staff there has
this quality. If you feel you have it, you may find yourself
volunteering to be staff for next year!)

Thank you for picking up my categories. I am back on nasty
medicine for my lungs, so I have been doing little but reading
emails.

You guys have been doing a heck of a fine job.

A Wrap-up before bedtime.... Winners, Post-Mortem, etc. Posted by ainaechoiriel November 15, 2004 - 1:52:32 Topic ID# 2792
The Winners have all been posted (and correctly, this time, we hope!)
to two Winners Databases in the Database section. There's one
database for Authors and one for Stories.

Also, as you have seen by the great influx of posts in your
mailboxes, the Banner contest has ended. The Banner submissions
pages on the web site (and the Photos section) will soon be revised
to showcase the winners. Thank you to everyone who participated. I
started without any confidence in my ability to make a decent banner
and ended up having a lot of fun making them.

Here are the Banner Contest winners:

Men
The Faithful of Numenor #2 (by Anna/Andreth) & #3 (by Viv)
The Kings of Gondor and Arnor #4 (Viv)
The Ruling Stewards #2 (by ? Anyone recognize this one?)

The Imladris #3 (Tinni)
The Grey Havens #7 (Gwathy)

The Eomer #1 (Ainaechoiriel), #5 (Bubbles), & #6 (Coriel)

Numenor
The Elros Son of Earendil #1 (Anna/Andreth)
The Tar-Palantir #2 (Anna/Andreth)
The Tar-Miriel #1 (Anna/Andreth)

Humor
The Tom Bombadil #1 (Pervinca)
The Bilbo Baggins #1 (Pervinca)
The Barliman Butterbur #1 (Pervinca)

Adventure
The Battle of the Black Gate #4 (Bubbles)
The Battle of the Pelennor Fields #10 (Bubbles)
The Battle of Helm's Deep #7 (Ainaechoiriel)

Drama
The Turin Turambar #1 (Anna/Andreth) & #2 (Anna/Andreth)
The Frodo Baggins #4 (Bubbles)
The Nimrodel and Amroth #2 (Ainaechoiriel) & #4 (TrinityHelix)

Romance

Crossover
The Pirates of the Caribbean #2 (Coriel)
The Hidalgo #3 (Thundera Tiger)
The Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade #2 (Mirasaui)

The Silmarillion
The Ainulindale #4 (Anna/Andreth)
The Valaquenta #2 (?--I accidentally deleted it. I reuploaded it but
I forgot to see who made it. Anyone recognize it?)
The Akallabeth #3 (Ann/Andreth)

The Hobbit
The Shire #5 (Elana)
The Mirkwood #3 (Elana)
The Lonely Mountain #2 (Elana)

The Lord of the Rings
The Fellowship of the Ring #3 (Elana)
The Two Towers #3 (Elana)
The Return of the King #3 (Coriel)

Fanfic winners: Give us a few days to update the web sites before you
get your banners. We'll add a line to them with the category if they
need it. If there was a tie, you can choose from the winning banners.

Post-Mortem: Please take notes on your ideas. What worked? What
didn't? Suggestions for changes? We'll start the Post-Mortem in
December. That gives me some time to work on the web sites, notifying
authors who aren't members, etc.

And a surprise! I'll let you know more about this sooner! So don't
unsub yet! ;-)

For now, I need to get to bed!

Congrats again to all the winners and my heartfelt thanks to all the
members how joined, voted, lurked, volunteered, etc. I think you
have all helped to make this a successful first run, and I hope you
appreciated the feedback and comments on the various stories and
authors. I know I did and I'll be replying to those who commented on
me or my stories personally in a few days.

Thanks again!

Winners Correction Posted by ainaechoiriel November 15, 2004 - 2:22:25 Topic ID# 2793
Oh, dear. So sorry about this.

The Silmarillion Second Age has the wrong winners listed. Larian
pointed out this to me. I take the blame. I got the numbers mixed up
when I entered the totals in my spreadsheet. I had the 26 points for
Nol's story going to Larian's, etc.

So, here is the corrected list of winners for Silmarillion Second Age:
1 A Last Reckoning by Nol
2 Oath Renewed by Inglor
3 Seashell by Nol

Just so show the breakdown on this category though, here are the
counts (from the vote count totals database in MEFAStaff):

Code Story Author Count1 Count2 Count3 MainCat

S2-1 A Last Reckoning Nol 26 26 26 StorySilm
S2-2 It's In His Eyes Larien Elensar 11 11 11 StorySilm
S2-3 Mortal Shores Vorondis 19 19 19 StorySilm
S2-4 Oath Renewed Inglor 22 22 22 StorySilm
S2-5 Seashell Nol 18 18 18 StorySilm


We will have the final counts and spreadsheets available to MEFAwards
members soon. Tomorrow I hope. Just have to get them exported from
the Staff group and imported in here.

I will correct the winners database before I go to bed though.

Thanks, Larian, for catching this.

Much as I would have loved to write the fabulous "Quickening", this is

Ummm, it looks from the counts like Mortal Shores should be in third
place...

Oh dear! Another one?! Let me have a look. I went to bed at 3. It's now 10
though, so I should be refreshed.

Yes. It should.

Sorry, Nol, you only get one award in this category.

Congratulations, Vorondis!

Okay, so here are the winners...again:
Silmarillion Second Age
1 A Last Reckoning by Nol
2 Oath Renewed by Inglor
3 Mortal Shores by Vorondis

I sincerely hope this is the last mistake. Or I'm going to have to start
making excuses:
1) I stepped on a nail Saturday night. Could be an infection affecting my
brain.
2) I was talking on the phone to Dwim last night. We can blame it all on
her. ;-)
3) All the housecleaning I was doing was affecting my brain.
4) I have six cats! That just might be excuse enough! ;-)
5) I'm expecting a new nephew today, so I was distracted.

I'm sure I can come up with more if I need to....

Um, see the excuses in my last post and pick the most appropriate. ;-)

How about:
6-2,700,000) You've been working on this for nearly a year (or longer), and in
addition to administering and getting staff and volunteers and members, you
read and voted on a LOT of stories and authors!! I don't think you even have to
use the other ones..*grin*

Hey there-

Just wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work, and I'm
thrilled to have been a participant... and finalist! I've been mostly
lurking through this process (*cringes*) but was curious since I was
also affiliated with another awards process- will we, as authors, see
the comments that were posted? If not, no big deal.

Thank you again for your energies spent on this endeavor!

You're welcome!

We're going to tweak the banners a bit, adding a bar on the bottom with the
category and placement. Then I'll work up a web page with them and the links
we'd like you to put with them (linking back to us, of course).

So give us a few days to get settled and get stuff done. I'll be sure to let
you know when we're ready.

Okay, I have made a web page that just shows the winners.

However! We are going to add something to them to show what category and
place they were for. For example, the Lothlorien Award banners just says
MEFA, 2004, and The Lothlorien Award. An outsider wouldn't know it's for
Elves fiction or that it's 1st place.

Here's a question though: What do we do for subcategories? Do we make copies
of each banner and put the bar on the bottom that says "Elves Drabble" and
on another one "Elves Vignette"...? Or do we just leave it at Elves?

There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for awhile. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.

I think that if there were subcategories in the awards, there should be
subcategories in the banners. Which raises the question: how small a font
can a normal human possibly read? LOL!

Hold that thought if you're a second place winner. I just noticed that all
the 2nd place banners still say "First Place". So we'll have to get those
fixed. First and Third places look good though.

I have the feeling that all banners are shown as in the poll.

I also see no bars at the bottom.

Many thanks to all organizers and Ainaechoiriel especially.
This fanfiction award process was (and is)
a most interesting and gripping experience.

You need to click on one of the Men banners. It takes you to another page
with a table of the awards and banners with the bars on the bottom. I'll
try to make that note to authors more prominent tomorrow.

Thanks and you're welcome.

Oh, and I've retooled the Winners page into a table format. Yes, I love mail
merging web pages. ;-) So now the Winners page has links for the winning
stories.

Many Thanks!! Posted by Tay Mueller November 16, 2004 - 5:04:52 Topic ID# 2803
I just wanted to say how thrilled I was to see my name in the lists.
This has been an extremely wearing year in Real Life that revolved
around the illness and death of Jim's Mother, and continues to
revolve around settling her estate, such as it is. I wanted to be
more involved with this project, but there were never enough hours.

The feedback system is such an inspired idea - every word that came
to me touched my heart, and I regret not being able to get out to
reciprocate.

Thanks so much to everyone who thought of this idea.

That's the way Viv is making them, so we're heading that direction.

I don't know how much I'll be around today. Remember that nail in my foot?
Well, my foot's doing great. My chest, however, is not. Starting hurting
last night and was very bad by this 4:30 this morning. Ask-A-Nurse said go
to the emergency room, so I was back. I really think I'ts the antibiotics.
As I had just taken them before I went to bed. Well, I was sent home after
a bit (and after the pain died down) and slept fitfully the rest of the
night. I have an appointment at noon with my regular doctor (Where the
co-pay is just $15 instead of $50--this weekend has been expensive.) and I
just took another dose of the antibiotics--with a lot of water, as the ER
docs said I should. So far, the hint of pain I went to bed with has moved
up to, yes, it does hurt. So we shall see.

I'm beginning to be very afraid of antibiotics.

Well, if I'm not around, that's why. I'll be back when I can.

There were a few (thankfully only a few) stories that did not get comments.
Do I put them on the web site, with no comments under them? Would that make
an authors feel bad--like I'm drawing unwanted attention to them? Or would
it be best to have the titles there so the authors see they weren't
forgotten but that they just didn't get comments, for whatever reason?

Shall I make a poll?

Here are the stats:

Out of 552 stories, 9% (50 stories) did not receive comments. Many of these
are by authors who had other stories that did receive comments. There are
40 authors in all of stories that didn't receive comments.

I had thought to write them all personally, but again, I don't know if that
would be received well.

I am not sure about anyone else, but there were many stories I did
not read, not because they did not look interesting, but because I
ran out of time. I feel extremely guilty about that and plan to use
the reading period more effectively next year. If you do not post
the names of those that were left out, at least leave the nomination
list. I don't think anyone would be offended if we leave feedback
after the fact. Did anyone truly read them all? I must say, the
stories I DID have time to read were all enjoyable, and I am sure
those that I missed are too!

Greetings all ~

I've been pondering this a while from an author's standpoint, and I
kind of doubt there is any one, fool-proof way to please everyone on
that issue. My own thought is, however, to post the stories, even
without the comments. While I as an author might sort of feel left
out if I found no comments under my story ... I think I'd feel even
more neglected if there wasn't even mention of my story's name.

So perhaps just list ALL the stories, and where there are no
comments, either leave that spot blank, or put some sort of note
like "Reviewer declined comment" or something? Unless you think that
would be worse ... But anyhow, I do think I'd feel worse if my story
were overlooked even without mention, even if there was no
comment/feedback.

That's just my tuppence, though. You might try the poll idea, if you
really feel uncomfortable about it. :-)
Cheers ~

Well, upon further reflection (aka somewhat obsessive/compulsive doings), I
ran somemore stats. Only 13 of those authors had no other stories with
comments AND are not members. I'm pretty sure that people who are members
(25 of these 40 authors) would know how things go around here. They've seen
all the posts flooding their inboxes. Some of them even commented
themselves. 11 of the 15 who...okay, somewhere along the way, my tally
marks didn't work out as I have more than 40 tally marks. Anyway, I had
more purple (members and have other stories with comments) and red (stories
with other comments) than there were no color at all (excel spreadsheet
cells--neither member and no comments at all). There were 4 blue (members
but no other comments).

So, I'm not feeling so bad about listing the stories with no comments.
Thank you for giving it sincere consideration. I appreciate it.

I agree with Mirasaui: leave the stories in the nomination list, but not in
the final comments list.

I joined the list only a couple weeks before the voting ended, and
(unfortunately) actually ended up reading even fewer than I expected to when
I joined. If I left no comments for a particular story, it was *only*
because I did not read it. But I certainly enjoyed the few that I was able
to read, and will very likely consult the nominee list over the next few
months whenever I have a chance to start a new story...

I have every confidence that, whatever the decision (to list them or not),
you will be able to contact the authors in a compassionate manner.
(Actually, maybe this question is best directed only at those authors who
are affected? Theirs is the opinion that really matters...)

Re: comments on the web site Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 17, 2004 - 3:11:54 Topic ID# 2840
I've decided how I'm going to do it. It's just going to take awhile. I
build these pages with mail merge from an excel spreadsheet. Mostly, it
works really well. That's how the nominations tables were built, for
instance. And how the banners pages are being built.

But the comments are going to take awhile because the merge doesn't want to
work smoothly. It wants to cut comments off mid-comment. So...I have to
copy each comment for each story, by hand, into one cell. Then it merges
properly. The "awhile" part comes from the fact that there are over 2000
comments. I've finished with Adventure, but now it's 3am. Time to quit for
the night.

What I envision when I'm done: A frame page where by the list of authors is
on the left, with their stories listed below them (and an Author Comment
link). The author clicks on one of the stories and it loads another page in
the right-hand frame that shows the comments for that story. Also shows a
link to the story, for any reader who happens by and decides they want to
read it. No e-mails addresses are showing (to prevent spam), so, though the
commenters are identified, the author will have to find an e-mail address
for them somewhere else in order to reply.

So, that's what I'll be doing for the next day or two. And Viv has shipped
me a bunch more banners so I'll have to get those uploaded and their titles
worked into the spreadsheet that builds that page. I can probably get that
done tomorrow. I'm off-work again because I KNOW I won't be feeling well.
Yesterday and today (Monday and Tuesday) were vacation days. Tomorrow
(Wednesday) is a sick day.

Well, that's it for the night. I'm off to bed to sleep sitting up. Fun, fun.

Would it be possible for readers to submit comments after the fact
if they went to the website? That would be nice for those of us who
could not possibly read ALL the stories, but would like to as the
year progresses. I have NO idea whatsoever how much work that might
entail, so if it is not a possibility, then never mind the

Just wanted to drop a note and say thanks to everyone who
participated in the MEFAs and commented on all these works and
authors.

"For the Dark" is close to my heart as one of my favourite stories,
so I was especially pleased to see it recognized. I appreciated every
piece of feedback (and the writers will be hearing from me in person
too!). Unfortunately RL has significantly reduced my time for fandom
commitments this year, so I wasn't able to take part as a
reader/voter, but I hope to next year if the awards continue.

Thanks again!

Since most of the stories are at websites with review functions or at least

included as part of the competition, but I'm sure none of the authors would

Absolutely. I'm just concerned about putting e-mail addresses up on the site
because spiders can troll websites and pick up all those e-mail addresses
and then those e-mail addresses get spammed. But, there are links to the
stories where they are archived, and there are review functions on most of
those, or somehow a way for a reader to contact the author.

Thank You from Erin - Long! Posted by erin\_hobbit\_ofbt November 17, 2004 - 14:26:09 Topic ID# 2854
Greetings all ~

I made a rather graceless appearance here, by popping up with a bunch
of dumb questions, so I would like to make ammends. :-) I've been
poking through message archives here looking for feedback on my
stories, and I have to say ... you guys have almost brought me to
tears. *HUGS*

So, in random order I would like to thank:

Elena Tiriel
-- Comments on "Aglarond" - words are not thanks enough. The beauty
and generosity of your thoughts overwhelms me. I'd hug you until you
squeaked if I could only reach to where you are! Thank you!! :-)
-- Comments on "The Last Grey Ship" - That's it, you're going to make
me cry! (Speaking of tugging heartstrings, LOL!) All I can say is
Thank You So Very Much. You flatter and honor me beyond compare, and
I am truly grateful. :-)

Marta
-- Comments on "Aglarond" - I am absolutely delighted that Gimli's
voice and perspective worked for you. Somehow he seemed the natural
vehicle for the telling of that tale, and I really enjoyed viewing
their friendship through his eyes. Thank you!! :-)
-- Comments on "Ashes, East Winds, Hope That Rises" - Eeks, it felt a
bit scary to realise I'd surprised you by writing beyond Grima's
ouster, but I'm ever so glad it worked for you, anyway. I think it's
a bit risky to write with a "message" but that's what I was trying to
do here, and luckily it comes across for you: hope lost and found.
Whew! :-) Thank you!!
-- Comments on "The Last Grey Ship" - Oh, no, I need to hand out more
tissues! *G* Nonetheless, I'm very happy to know this story touched
you so. It remains a story that touched me deeply to write, so I'm
glad it has lost none of its power. And I'm glad the bits of humor
worked, too! As for type-os - yes, I'm certain there are several.
This was my first fic in the LOTR genre and done without a beta, so
probably it could stand for me to tidy up a bit. I've thought about
it ... ;-) For such kind comments, Thank you!! :-)

Ainaechoiriel
-- Comments on "Aglarond" - Yay, my descriptions worked! I'm so very
glad it played well for you, and that the words formed images in your
mind's eye. Writing such beauty was a tremendous challenge for me!
LOL, and I, too, would like to see from Legolas' standpoint. My fan
fiction muses have not been talking to me lately, but ... I really
would like to write that. Thank you for your comments!! :-)
-- Comments on "Ashes, East Winds, Hope that Rises" - Firstly, all I
can say for the title is that it just sort of fell into my lap, in
one of those strange little gift-moments that just works! {*looks up
at ceiling for invisible muses*} I am very pleased that my skating
so close to Tolkien's own writing worked without becoming a
distraction, and without bogging down in itself. This was a *tough*
story to write, simply because I felt I was balancing so many
factors. It was also my first story that I threw out before my LOTR
peers and cried for constructive critisism! So I owe a great many
people for how it turned out. Thank you for your kind words!! :-)
-- Comments on "The Last Grey Ship" - Laughter through tears, yes,
that is what this story wanted to be. This was my first LOTR fic
ever, and I have continually thought that it was a gift to me, a wee
peek through the magical window through which Tolkien so eloquently
viewed. Thank you for telling me how it worked for you!! :-)

Thundera Tiger
-- Comments on "The Lion And The Swan" - What a wonderful surprise
for me to learn that this poem coaxed you out of your traditional
avoidance of Romance! *G* Tell you the truth, I seldom write it,
either, so I'm tickled all to pieces that my little romantic detour
pleased you. Thank you!! :-)
-- Comments on "Aglarond" - *is gob-smacked* Wow ... LOL, I hardly
know what to say to such scholarly analysis, other than I find it
terribly wonderful that the fact I wrote this in 1st-person-present-
tense slipped by you the first time! LOL! I almost feel I need to
hand the credit off to some Higher Power for the positives you see -
plus I had some very good critics who helped me polish this
perfect. :-) The friendship of Legolas and Gimli is dear to me, so
I'm glad this story touched you, too. Thank you!! :-)
-- Comments on "Ashes, East Winds, Hope That Rises" - {*HUGS!!!*}
Sorry, I know that's not terribly dignified, but I am SO happy to
hear such kind appraisal of my Eomer depiction, and also of my
dancing around Tolkien's own writing so closely. Yes, Hama is dear to
me as well, a tragically noble figure that I was only too pleased to
give his moments in the limelight. I'm delighted to know this
pleased you, too! Thank you!! :-)

Dwimmerlaik
-- Comments on "Ashes, East Winds, Hope that Rises" - Yes, you were
there when I bared my breast to the world and hollered for help with
this story! It was the first time I did so, and the wonderful
response of the HA group cured me of my fear of beta-readers. *G*
Meanwhile, I am relieved and overjoyed to hear that even now the
story still works, given how close to Tolkien I was playing. I'm
glad my depictions of Eomer ring true, for his was the story that I
really wanted to tell and I desperately wanted to Get It Right. For
such kind and thoughtful comments, Thank You!! :-)
-- Comments on "The Last Grey Ship" - For this I can only say Thank
You for a wonderful review. I felt terribly daring back when I first
wrote this, so it still appeases me to hear that the many threads I
tried to pick up in this story work for other readers. It was a
delicate dance to write - and I am very glad you enjoyed it! Thank
you!! :-)

Larian Elensar
-- Comments on "The Last Grey Ship" - LOL, yes, I confess I sniffled
along the way of writing it, too! As I've noted elsewhere in this
email, this was my first LOTR story, and I still feel it was a gift
that just came to me, whole and ready to be told. I only had to
capture it in words ... and yes, it yanks my heartstrings, too! *G*
Thank you!!


That's everyone I could find in a search of message archives! :-) If
I've missed anyone, please forgive me! Each and every one of you are
wonderful, giving people, and I can't tell you how much your kind
words mean to me. Especially as many or most of you are stellar
writers in your own right!! I was feeling pretty singed about fan
fiction in general after the Late Unpleasantness surrounding the
Mithrils, and it really feels like a long, clean breath of fresh air
to see so much positive energy shared amongst writers and readers.

I know all of us can stand to hear good constructive critisism, to be
gently told where we've goofed, what could be improved, what is
perhaps not entirely our best ... but it is also just plain WONDERFUL
for the creative spirit to hear what we've done *well*. It's a huge
relief to my muses to see people telling me that things I attempted
to do, points I tried to make, characterisations I struggled with
portraying ... actually worked. That means so very much to me. So
it's not just the empty joy of praise, but actual affirmation that
yes, sometimes I get something right. *G*

So Thank You, one and all, for your time, your labors, your efforts,
the hours, days and months you spent making this contest happen.
What I have seen here is a balm to my spirit. God bless you all. :-)

{{*HUGS!!}}

Hi,

My page is no longer at angelfire so the links are
wrong. These are the links:

http://www.geocities.com/zafiro_v/elflings.html

http://www.geocities.com/zafiro_v/paths.html

http://www.geocities.com/zafiro_v/spring.html

I took Love down, but as that didn't win an award it's
okay. If you do post links to the non winner stories
just forget about Love. :)

I want to add my thanks to those who organized, oversaw and participated in
these awards; the idea is a wonderful one, and the feedback has been
invaluable and will be treasured for a long time to come. I now have a very

Just want to say thank you to everyone (and especially Ainae, of course!) for making the MEFAwards happen. It's such a wonderful concept, having a whole community of readers making comments, and I deeply appreciate everyone who read my stories and responded.

I'd love to promise that I'll contact each person who left feedback for me. Oh, dear -- RL has such a stranglehold on me right now - all I can promise is that I will TRY - but if I miss anyone, please do forgive me and know that I'm truly grateful for your feedback!

Absolutely. I'm just concerned about putting e-mail addresses up on the site
because spiders can troll websites and pick up all those e-mail addresses
and then those e-mail addresses get spammed. But, there are links to the
stories where they are archived, and there are review functions on most of
those, or somehow a way for a reader to contact the author.

Hi, just went to check out the banners, and I thought that a bar was going to be added saying whether or not the award is for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, but there is no bar that I can see. Also, for an author award, do we take whatever award is appropriate: 1st, 2nd or 3rd from that particular category?

Comments up....some of them Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 18, 2004 - 0:25:02 Topic ID# 2867
Well, I was going to wait until I got all 2000 comments ready, but I figured
I'd go ahead and put up what I have. So, if we sort the stories
alphabetically by category and then subcategory, Adventure comes first, etc.
The first 144 stories (starting with Adventure and going through Crossovers
and Drama to Elves/Drabble) have been posted. No author comments yet. I'll
work on those after I finish all the story comments.

Here's where you look (be sure to open this in a new window, there's no link
back to the main page): http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/comments.html

and I went with the very simple "No comments" for stories that didn't get
comments.

Also, Ainae, you might want to just kill me. But the quote from Marta under

got put in the right place, I just copied the comments into the wrong cell...

loads; in IE 5.0 (Mac), a page loads, but it turns out to be the same

No killing necessary. It's an easy fix since I use mail merge. Just cut and
paste. It will be fixed on the next merge and upload.

Yeah, different browsers accept different commands and it can be tricky to
write them for both IE and Netscape. Mozilla is akin to Netscape, I believe.


So IE is probably the best bet. I'll add a note to that extent in the next
upload.

Hello. See what happens when you go away for a few days! I am thrilled
to have made it to the list of winners for the MEFA awards. I humbly
thank each person who commented on my poem. It is a pleasure to be
included in the ranks of the accomplished writers on the list.

More thanks are due to our guru and leader, Ainaechoiriel, the MEFA
Admin and Founder. I have never participated in this type of contest
before and I learned a lot. Two things in particular: there is a lot of
good fanfic writing out there, and putting together this contest took an
amount of work and resources that is mind-boggling. You're my new
shining star, Ainaechoiriel. Best regards - Chathol-linn

Okay, it was missing a bracket. Got that fixed. And most of Drama is fixed,
too. We're missing one banner. I'm sure Viv will get that to me soon.
She's been doing a bang-up job so far!

And just for kicks (with the side-effect of annoying my cats who should have
been fed 50 minutes ago), I finished the H's in story comments. That
categories, not story titles: Hobbits, Horror, and Humor are done.
Definitely over the halfway mark now. For stories. Then there are author
comments....

Still no go, not in either browser. I get a repeat of the default

Feeling dumb. I have to scroll a lot to see anything, but apparently I
can get to all the comments in the main window. It just doesn't look
like it. I don't know if I still have a problem--should clicking on a
story name take me down to the space where the story's comments are,
or does it just pull up a general comments page?

I tried them again in all of my browsers and IE was the only one that worked.

Maybe it's something silly like...emptying your history and temp files? (That's
my default first solution...heh.)

And yes, you just click on the story name and the comments should show in the
right side frame.

Maybe you could just do a 'find in page' thing if you wanted to see a specific
story?

http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/comments.html

For me with Internet Explorer
a click on the story name in the left hand frame
results in a to the appropriate comment.
Example: all of Khylea's stories have comments
while the stories are widely distributed in the main page.

With Mozilla the left hand frame doesn't work
because the # anchor seems not to work
as far as I can see.
Thus, one has to scroll around in the main page.

As only the story title and not the author's name
is given, Mozilla is in principle not usable
to search in the main page for all stories of one author.
For now one finds only those comments which
use Khylea's name within the comment.

Perhaps Ainaechoiriel could add the author's name
in front of the title, then Mozilla users could search
the main page for the author's name.

Mozilla 1.6 sees a ##A11 anchor in the main page,
while the left hand frame calls a #A11 anchor
for Khylea's "To save a Hobbit".
Why Mozilla sees something other than Microsoft IE
I cannot fathom.

With Mozilla the call
http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/stcomments.html##A11
leaps to the correct position.
Yet, the source text shows #A11

I didn't find a key to change that behaviour.

As Internet Explorer works with either
##A11 and #A11
Ainaechoiriel should add a second #
to the links in the left hand calling frame.
Then it should work for all browser hopefully.

That or I might try to work up a frame-free page, though it won't be as
usuer friendly. But I'll hold off on that until I get all the comments
ready. Remember that I have to copy all of them individually for each story
into the same cell in Excel. Once they're all in there, I can easily build
multiple pages from the data, sorted different ways. For the non-frame
page, I'll sort by Author.

In the mean time, here is some technical information: Yes, when you click on
a title in the left-hand frame, it pulls up the comments in the right-hand
frame. This is by using bookmarks, or the # anchor. The individual files
in question authors.html and stcomments.html. Anyone having difficulty with
the frames could pull up stcomments.html individually. It is and will be
one very long HTML page with each story's comments spaced well away from the
previous or next story's comments. That is so it will be isolated in the
frame. The stories are in this sorted order:

Category/subcategory/title. That's alphabetically. So Adventure/Pre-LOTR
is first.

I could also try using the anchors in the Winners table....

But first, I already have two time-consuming tasks: banners and comments.
So let me get those out in one format for now and then I'll work on
alternatives.

Okay, I think I may have found the issue. I'ts been a LONG time since I used
internal page links. I think I don't need the # in the anchor on the page,
just in the link to it.

Okay, try it now Mozilla and Netscape users!

Yay! It works! Mozilla 1.0.1 for Macs now goes straight to the

Is there a volunteer or two out there to e-mail all the winners so they know
to come get their banners? Not all of them are members. I have a
spreadsheet with all their e-mail addresses, except Igenlode Wordsmith.
Anyone know how to get in touch with Igenlode?

As soon as the page uploads, the bar at the left appears fine,
but the rest of the page has the error message.

None of the story links work, and the author comments link open
to the page "no comments up yet."

I'm using IE6.

Okay, I've finally exceeded my quota with Earthlink. That seems to be the
problem. I'm going to move most of the images off. I'll point them to my
home server. Next year's MEFAs may be mostly (dang aphasia! I can't think
of the right word) on the home server with only a thin site at the earthlink
spot.

I'll get to work on the images.

Dressed up the comments a bit Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 20, 2004 - 2:17:34 Topic ID# 2914
(And checked all of the banners to make sure there weren't anymore errors.)

I've made the authors' names in the left frame bold, and the story titles in
the right-frame bold as well. And I clicked on every story to make sure the
links worked. (You do have to wait a bit for the first one as the file is
huge and takes time to load. In the days to come, I may split it into
several files, once I know I don't need to use the mail merge anymore.) I
also fixed a bit of coding here and a title there. Should look a lot better

Also, I noted that two of the LOTR banners are huge. Hopefully we'll get
those sized down here in teh very near future.

Thanks!

It certainly looks much better.

However, my story "You will see them at night" still misses a
comment from Thundera Tiger (in group message 2004). If you have
a free moment, perhaps you can put it up. I don't mind either
way, now that I've found out how to search Yahoo groups...

Ainae, here's the comment that should go in for Thundera for Werecat's Orc
Story.

Wonderfully chilling account of what happens when a bad orc goes good. Well,
thereıs really not that much of a difference that I can see. He still uses the
same methods to pursue his goals. He still views elves as less than orcs and he
still seems to take pleasure in their pain. In fact, if anything I would say
that an orc with a literary interest is even more dangerous, especially given
what heıs done with his literary interest. It hasnıt opened his mind to the
possibilities offered by elven culture. Instead, he has done essentially what
Morgoth did when creating the Orcs: he has taken something and ruined it to
suit his own purposes. And heıs done it well. The poem he writes at the end is
wonderfully chilly and eerie. I had shivers. Amazing story.

mad commenting skillz Posted by viv November 20, 2004 - 13:53:17 Topic ID# 2917
In my totally unscientific zoom-through of the so-spiffy comments
page, I noticed a few names popping up a *lot*. A handful of folks
commented on durn near every category, and those people deserve a
huge thank-you for picking up the slack for the rest of us. So
Ainae, Thundera, Dwim, Larian, and Elanor (and there were probably
others, these are just the ones I saw most), thank you. Your
generosity and dedication to getting those comments done and posted
on time were a huge part of the success of these awards.

Plus you (and all the commenters, really), brought a lot of
happiness to a lot of fic writers.

So, thank you.

(Personal wild squees to the very dear folks who commented on my fic-
scribbles. You know who you are. I shall proceed to fangirl you
until I feel you've been sufficiently thanked. ;)

Comments on the comments ;-) Posted by Marta November 20, 2004 - 14:41:41 Topic ID# 2918
Ainae-

I just checked out the comments you have posted at the website. Very
nice, and thank you for all the time you took to put those pages
together. Of course, being me, I do have two "constructive comments".
(The beta in me will never rest, I'm afraid.) You might consider
indeningt the titles of the stories, either the first line or the
following lines - as it is right now, it's not always immediately
obvious where one title ends and the next begins.

Also, it would be really helpful if you could include the summary of
the story. I'm not sure how easy this would be to do with your mail
merge, but it would help those of us with bad memories remember what
story is being discussed. It would also help potential readers who
didn't participate in the awards decide if they want to read the story
or not. And it would spruce up the pages where the story wasn't
commented on.

But besides those two quibbles, I like it. Thanks!

Big MEFA thank-you Posted by Viv November 20, 2004 - 15:03:21 Topic ID# 2919
Thank you so much for MEFA-commenting my stories
"Experiment Gone... Right?" and "Promises" and "Snorg:
Letters from Mordor" and "Red Dawn, Golden Flower."
Wow, I think you commented on everything of mine that
was nominated! I can't tell you how much your support,
and these awards, have meant to me. I've been involved
with other fandom awards, and I can tell you honestly
that the MEFAs has been my best experience so far. And
not just because I got a shiny banner award at the
end, but because of the supportive, creative, generous
atmosphere that you've engendered throughout this
whole process. I wish that there was some gift I could
give you that would equal what these awards, and your
personal support through the story comments, have
meant to me. I don't think that such a gift exists.
Thank you.

Indentations can't be done in HTML. Unless there's been some update in new
HTML since I learned it several years ago. And really, I'm not trying to
make this harder on myself. I've put a lot of my life on hold for the
MEFAwards. Especially toward the end. It's cost me. And I still have author
comments to do. And, believe it or not, the author frame takes more work
than the comments frame does. Because I have to do a lot of tweaking after
the mail merge.

Summaries, I could do. But they have to go on the same page with the

Right! I'm afraid my knowledge of HTML begins and ends with those tags
allowable in HASA forums and stories. I really am clueless about the
intricacies of it. Sorry I suggested the undoable. (Though the
bulleted list seems like a great compromise. Good idea!)

I know. And believe me, I appreciate it. I wasn't trying to complain
or seem ungrateful for all of your work, though I appreciate that it
may have come across that way.

I *really* appreciate all the time you've taken to put the comments
together. These are certainly non-critical suggestions. You can hold
off implementing them, if you ever decide to.

I can understand that. Thanks for all your effort.

Right, that's what I was seeing. So something like:

[Title]

[Summary]

[Comments]

Thanks for considering these suggestions. I really have not been
involved in the MEFAs admin-wise since categorizing, so I don't know
what's going on behind the scenes. Make of these suggestions what you
will - you know best what can and should be done.

Btw, when I'm critical of something, it usually means I like it.
Things that I don't like, I don't bother critiquing. I know, it's
weird. :-)

Hi Ainaechoiriel,

thank you so much for your tremendous work !

I saw that the comments are rendered continuously
without line feeds. That was naturally OK for counting.
Yet, this poses a problem for some of my comments
where I used the much lamented quotations.
Partially I did not encase them in apostrophes
but separated them from normal text only by line feeds,
thus now there is nearly no indication
that there is a quotation given and not a comment.
Sorry to the authors about that.

In "Breathe" I noticed that my comment stops
after Minor, I send the complete comment.
Gondor
LG3: Breathe by Fileg
Finely crafted series of pieces connected by the Anduin. Boromir learns to
swim (breathe before you dive) and uses his skills after the fall of the
Osgiliath bridge. The brothers help each other. Faramir sees his dead
brother in the Elven boat and has to get without support out of the water.
Faramir sends his experiences as drawings and words in a little paper boat
down the river accounting to his brother all what has changed. Minor
quibble: IMO paper boats are modern inventions. Evocative and beautiful
worded.

Many thanks for all the time
you invest into this project

Re: All Story comments up! Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 21, 2004 - 20:02:47 Topic ID# 2928
Larian and I collected comments into an excel spreadsheet. Which meant they
had to all be in one cell. Line breaks would put the different paragraphs in
different cells. I came up with a solution (editing them so that paragraph
breaks had a BR tag) but Larian didn't do that.

If you want to do that for your comments, do so and I'll update them. But
really, this is just too much work for me to go through and do this for you.
I have already quite a lot to do.

The tag, in case you don't know html is <BR>. If you think it needs a blank
line between the two paragraphs, use <P>. But make sure you send them to me
in a text file attachment so that e-mail doesn't try to render the HTML.

Thanks.

Partially I did not encase them in apostrophes but separated them from
normal text only by line feeds, thus now there is nearly no indication that
there is a quotation given and not a comment.
Sorry to the authors about that.

In "Breathe" I noticed that my comment stops after Minor, I send the
complete comment.
Gondor
LG3: Breathe by Fileg
Finely crafted series of pieces connected by the Anduin. Boromir learns to
swim (breathe before you dive) and uses his skills after the fall of the
Osgiliath bridge. The brothers help each other. Faramir sees his dead
brother in the Elven boat and has to get without support out of the water.
Faramir sends his experiences as drawings and words in a little paper boat
down the river accounting to his brother all what has changed. Minor
quibble: IMO paper boats are modern inventions. Evocative and beautiful
worded.

Many thanks for all the time
you invest into this project

Well, the Staff list still exists but not much goes on there right now.
Basically everyone but Viv and I were done after the counting. Viv finished
yesterday (adding the bars to the images) and I will finish as soon as the
author comments are done. Then we might even have a little breather before
the Post Mortem.

Things that I don't like, I don't bother critiquing. I know, it's weird. :-)

;-) Well, I fall somewhere in the middle there. If somethings really awful,
it's just too overwhelming to critique. ;-)

No hard feelings on this side!

Author Comments: Tweaks needed..... Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 21, 2004 - 21:07:47 Topic ID# 2931
I am presently just putting the raw merge of the author comments up. This
will only pull up one category's comments per author. I'll tweak that after
I have the whole spreadsheet done, I can sort it differently and redo the
author comment page.

I've got all of the Author comments up on the web site, and I broke up the
HUGE story comments file into 6 files and fixed the links for them. I
tested ten or so links to see that they brought up the right story and it
all seems to work.

Thanks. Dwim did find a few that still had unmatching anchors (the link
calls for one code and the author comment page has a different one). So let
me know if you click on an Author and nothing comes up or the wrong author
does.

Re: All comments now up! Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 23, 2004 - 22:22:48 Topic ID# 2932
You're weldcome and thank you! I think this year's MEFAs have achieved
everything I wanted them to when I decided to jump in with both feet and
creat them. I had a lot of help making this vision come to reality and I'm
very thankful for all the volunteers who were insufficiently reluctant and
helped out. I think I may still have a few things I need to do (get the
totals database up to the MEFAwards group, for example). I'll try to have
that done soon (though I'll have to change all the titles's commas into
semicolons if I want the export and import to be as painless as possible).

And thanks also to those that nominated and voted! This wouldn't have
worked at all without the voters and I hope that next year more of you will
participate!

Lol, yes. I know that feeling. Kind of like "If I ever finish this
C++ program and it doesn't work, then I know that there's something
fundamentally wrong, not just a missing semicolon or bracket
somewhere." It's a scary thought. ;-)

Right. I thought you would have to pull information from two
different tables; it never occurred to me to just copy and paste a
column from one to the other. :-) You see how much I use Excel. (I
remember during categorizing I had to be taught how to sort the
entries instead of doing it manually...)

Btw, keep that in mind when I make my post-mortem suggestions. I
just have the kind of brain that sees the little tweaks that can
really improve a process. I think you've done great for a first
year, and I look forward to making sure year 2 works even better.

I certainly don't think I'll be commenting on too much, but it never
hurts to remind people of the spirit in which I'm offering my

I'm glad to hear that. No hard feelings here, either.

Post Mortem and postponed surprise Posted by Ainaechoiriel November 30, 2004 - 23:47:48 Topic ID# 2940
Well, we aren't going to be able to make a Dec. 1st date. How about two
more weeks? Erase that one penciled date and pencil it in on Dec. 15th.
Just hang around and we'll let you know when for sure.

And the post mortem...Thank you, everyone, for giving me a few days off. I
can't remember if I ever got the point total database copied over. I'll
check on it tomorrow and if I haven't got it done, I'll do it tomorrow.

Let's try and keep the post mortem organized somewhat. I am very vulnerable
to stress and want to keep that to a minimum, especially with the holidays
coming up. So, in that vein, no more than 3 topics at a time, if we can
manage it. (And if I should forget one topic in discussion of another,
don't take it personally. Forgetfulness comes along with the stress
vulnerability. Hey, I forgot two weddings!)

So, here's a topic: Author comments. They're not as easy to write as story
comments, especially when there are multiple nominations for teh same
author. Now, if we continue to include author comments, I wouldn't want to
limit them because how one writes humor is different from how one writes
drama, etc.

So, any suggestions? Should we take them out? Should we leave them in?
What should we do?
