I'm back! Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 01, 2004 - 0:18:14 Topic ID# 1228
And I can see you've all been busy.

I was away for the weekend and though, I did try to get online, it was an
experience of acute frustration. My laptop appears to have spyware on it,
which I didn't have the means to kill. My Clie hard reset itself, and I
didn't have the means to restore it until I returned home. I could only
connect at appallingly slow speeds (the fastest was 21 kbps, the slowest was
9.6 kbps!) and it kept kicking me off anyway. Everytime I got disconnected,
I had to reboot because the computer refused to communicate with the server
again. Grrrrrrr..

Anyway, computer-wise, I'm very happy to be home. It may take me a bit to
get all caught up. Hopefully, it will be a slow day at work tomorrow.

Nomination Posted by merrygoldgamgee June 01, 2004 - 0:48:52 Topic ID# 199
To nominate a story, please copy the form below and paste it into
your e-mail or post. Then fill it out. All fields with * are
required.

----------------------------------------------------------------

Story Nomination Form

*Nominator's name: Marigold

*Story Title: Recaptured!

*Story Author: Llinos

*Author's E-mail Address: Lizallinos@@aol.com

*Story URL - Please note there are two URL's due to the length of the
story:

Chapters 1 thru 92
http://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=970288

Chapters 93 – onward
http://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=969855


*Category Choices (see Categories File or FAQ for choices)

*1st: Hobbits
2nd: Adventure
3rd: The Lord of the Rings
Subcategory (Mandatory for WIP, Poetry, and Drabble. Otherwise,
suggest something): WIP – this is a serial

*Rating: R

Reason for rating (violence, graphic, etc.): Some violence, lots of
angst, but the rating should really be more of a PG 13.

*Romance Partners: None, but Merry and Pippin have a close
relationship. The reader can make up their mind how close.

*Summary (not a reccommenddation. Save that for the vote):

An alternate LotR universe story – The Uruk-Hai recapture Merry and
Pippin and because of this the story changes. The hobbits suffer many
trials and tribulations as a consequence and are led in a completely
different direction to the original story.

There are frequent appearances by many other LotR characters,
including all of the Fellowship with special attention paid to
Legolas, and also features Éowyn, Faramir and Théoden. There are also
some original characters, including some rather interesting orcs.

Overall this is a story which stars those two, usually underrated
hobbits, Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took, who prove to be
brave, valiant and true and who never lose their sense of right or
their sense of humour.

I saw those! And Gwathyg's. Zimraphel had one as well. They all look
wonderful. Except that some of them are very large. I've shrunk them down a
bit for the web site.

Try to keep them down to a banner or button, not a splash screen. And do
tell me, like you just did, so I'll know they are there.

Thanks!

Hi, I'm Ellbee. I've been writing and reading fanfic for about 3
years, and LotR fanfic for about a year and a half, though I read
much more than I write. The idea of feedback-based awards certainly
has merit, and it apparently works for other forums; I'll be
interested to see how it goes. I've been watching this group for
quite a while, and I think I've got a feel for it. So if you don't
mind, I'd like to jump in with some nominations. I've looked at the
list of nominees, and I didn't see any of these. If I've done
something wrong, I hope you'll let me know.

Our website may move Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 02, 2004 - 0:14:45 Topic ID# 1234
I'm really a bit miffed with our website right now. When I try to upload a
file (any file), I'm told "553 Disk full - please upload later).

This irks me greatly. We have 50MB of space there, and I'm only using less
than 4MB of it. I do not like being told the disk is full.

Right now that means that all of the Races and Places banner pages (I had
separated them by category) are gone. Why? Because I thought maybe if I
removed the original files, it would free up space for uploading the edited
files. No, still a Disk full message. Don't worry, I still have copies of
the files to upload. I just can't upload them right now. I'm not sure how
long those pages will be down. I can't even put up an announcement warning
those pages are down. I can't even replace the big Theoden banner recently
submitted with one I've shrunk, which means it's file size would be smaller.

Really annoyed here. I'd hate to have to move the site for all the headache
it would be. Look at how many places were are affililated with or linked
by. We'd have to let everyone there know or at least put up a "We have
moved" sign at our present location taking them to the new place.

It would be hassle. But then so is being told the disk is full and try
again.

Grrrrr..

About those dates in the databases Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 02, 2004 - 0:22:27 Topic ID# 1236
I realized when I made those fields, we might have some cultrual differences
in how to input them. But I started with the American way, since I'm, well,
American (though I do start to wonder when I can't remember how to spell
defense--er defence?). So I entered them m/d/yr.

I see that Nerwen, at least, has entered one d/m/yr. Sorry, hon, but for
sorting purposes (which is the purpose for which I made these fields), I
need them to sort only one way. m/d/yr and d/m/yr will produce May edits
which go to two different places when sorting.

So, please, pretend to be American (unless you already are) when entering
these dates. Heck, the year isn't even important, but since I put it there
by habit, to sort, we still need it, in two-digit format.

Thanks. 6/1/04

Thanks. It's back taking my files now. I left Geocities in the mass exodus
when Yahoo bought it out and wanted to pu tup some egregious TOS. They
changed the TOS but I still left. I was at crosswinds untill they started
letting in pop-ups. Stormpages has been good to me so far, though I do wish
I could upload by FTP (I have to use the web interface). With this server
(agreatserver.com), I have to use FTP and would like actually some of the
other features Stormpages has. Alas, it seems they are full because when I
tried to open the MEFA site there, it directed me to agreatserver.com.

Some of us Americans do. I am an American who has been converted to the
British dating system. Actually I've always written it like 02 June 04.
It just seemed more efficient than wasting that little comma.

Ainae, I will change mine tonight. I put two in the form 02 June or 01

No, no... argh! Wrong category. The MEFA site appears to be down
right this minute, but if memory serves (though, sadly, it usually
doesn't!), Lord of the Rings or drama would be fine with a secondary
category of hobbits, friendship, what have you. (and a big *blush*

That's great!

Thank you for all you're doing, and my apologies for flooding the
site with my own nominations. You might as well slap a "Read Me, Love
Me" sticker on my forehead. Oh well. I enjoy reading other people's

Well, for my part, it's just basic HTML. I don't know the fancy stuff. Oh,
I throw in a little mail merge here and there and tables are wonderful, but
other than that, no javascript or java or flash or other fancy mumbo jumbo.
So it's not hard.

Well, in that case, I've uplaoded 7 more! I had to reupload my three
Lothloriens, as they didn't have the year on them. I also uploaded another
one of those that I had forgotten. The other six are 2 Minas Morgul's and 4
Pelennors. Got a few more captures to go....

Oh, and hey, I got my ticket to the Boston LOTR Exhibit for Oct. 4th

Because the site is down again and has been since last night, I have decided
that agreatserver.com is not really a great server.

I then remembered that I have some free space with Earthlink that I'm hardly
using. So this is our new site: http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa

I've put up a We've Moved message at the old site, should it ever come up
again. Now comes the hard part:

We need to notify everyone we link to to change their links. I'll start
with the sites on the web site Links page. If you have added a link to our
stie (not our YahooGroup as that hasn't moved) to any other YahooGroup,
could you please go and change it?

If you have promoted our site to another site that I don't have on the links
page, tell me, so I can put their link up, but also contact them to change
the url.

Thanks for your help.

Nomination Season almost over... Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 05, 2004 - 0:58:21 Topic ID# 1258
So, members, we need some more nominations! Take a look at the Category
Viability table in the Databases section. Sort it by Viable/Not Viable and
you'll see what subcategories are lacking. There is one main category that
is not viable: Mystery. So think hard. Know of a good mystery story?
Nominate it! We only need one more for viability. And just one more Elves
WIP and Poem will get those two subcategories viable.

Any subcategories that aren't viable will be rolled into a broader category,
most likely.

And Categorizers, be sure to get the Nominations Database up-to-date with
the nominations and your spreadsheets. Once Nomination Season is over and
Check Ballot Season begins, start looking at your 2nd, 3rd choices and
subcategory suggestions. See if there are any good groupings of at least 5
(by at least 2 authors). Start with subcategories, but use the 2nd and 3rd
choices as they could be handy as well. For example, Drama may have 5 with
LOTR 2nd choice, 6 with the Silm. So Drama/LOTR could be a category, as
could Drama/Silm.

Of course then there's a flip site: If LOTR has quite a few with Drama as a
second choice, we may want to look at putting them together. Aw heck, this
is getting complicated. We'll work something out.

Once we've figured all that out, I'll have you e-mail me your spreadsheets.
I'll lump them altogether into one and get to work on the web page that will
list all pertinent info up on the web site. Then I'll throw some ballots
together for checking.

Author contacters, if there is an author listed in the Nominations table
that fits your letters but you haven't contacted yet, please do. Also, if
they'd said yes to only specific stories and there are now more stories
nominated, contact them again. Asking for blanket permission is good. I'll
go through another Author Contact Campaign or two before Check Ballot Season
is over. It was lucrative last time! Once Check Ballot Season ends, any
stories that don't have author permission will have to be removed from this
year's eligibility. They can be eligible again next year.

11 days to go!

It's not lost. You just need a little primer on the way these things are
going on. When the catagorizer sees a nomination for their category, they
put it into their spreadsheet and the Nominations table (in the Databases
section of the Yahoo site). That's where Winter Fire is right now. Posted
there on 5/29/04.

At the same time, when an Author Contactor sees an author that falls into
their alotted letters (mine are W-Z, for example), they contact the author.
They put the information in the Author Contact table in the Database.

Cuthalion is not yet in the Author Contact table.

Then, periodically (usually once a day), I go through the Nominations
database and cross reference it with the Author Contact table to see which
stories are 1) nominated and 2) approved by the author. (The dates help this
a great deal!) Once they are approved at both stages (a story might not be
approved for nomination if some part of the form was missing), I put them on
the web site. The ones on the web site are 100% official and in. If you
look at the bottom of the website list of Nominations it says it was updated
yesterday and has 393 of 434. Which means there are 434 in the Nominations
table in the Databases section, but only 393 are 100% official yet.

I hope that clears it up.

> Could somebody who knows where stories hide before they go up
> on the Nominations list please check into this for me?

Check the Nominations table in the database. If you don't see a story that
you nominated there, give a shout. It may be that the categorizer hasn't
gotten to it yet. We're getting close to the end of Nomination Season so we
need to get these caught up if they're not.

No problem.

It's a beautiful graphic, and I think I might take a crack at it. Thanks!

As for yours, it still needs a little work. Words and Numbers, don't worry.
You've got "MEFA" and "2004" in there in some form which is good. You've
also got the award title, but not in the correct form: The Nimrodel & (or
and) Amroth Award is how it should be. Others have put "for X Fiction" at
the end and that's okay, too.

So, just add a "The" and an "Award" to that and I'll grab it and put it on
the web site.

And so I have! I've made a banner and a button. They are named N&A #2 and
N&A #3. The #1 spot is for Marta as soon as she gets those two other words
on her banner.

So Marta, when you re-upload your banner, name it N&A #1

Ah, okay. Didn't remember (that is a problem since the MegaStress) and/or

"Thinking of You" is in the nominations database on
the yahoo group. It's not on the web site yet because
I haven't contacted the author for permission. (my
bad)

Anyone nominating should check the *nominations
database on the yahoo group* (not the web site) to see
if a story has been nominated, please.

Grey Wonderer (I think you're here), may we include
this story in the contest? Any interest in giving
blanket permission for all stories, so I don't bug you
more? ;)

I think that might have something to do with the

we all work on different updating schedules, sometimes
some categories are updated more quickly than others.
Those are both in Romance category, right?

*Raises hand* Yeah, sorry, that would be my fault. I'm the Romance
categorizer. I have entered them into *my* database, I just haven't
gotten around to putting them in the group database.

Never fear, I'm about to do it now. It was a good idea to ask about
it though. Knowing me, it was quite possible that I missed a post, so
it's always good to check if something isn't up within a couple of

Art Banner Submissions... Posted by trinity June 07, 2004 - 10:04:58 Topic ID# 1284

it further... My apologies in advance!

The Aragorn and Arwen award
The Ruling Stewards award
The Amroth and Nimrodel award
The Eowyn Award
The Lothlorien Award

thank you!

Re: Nimrodel & Amroth Banner- ARTIST NOTE Posted by trinity June 07, 2004 - 10:13:53 Topic ID# 1259
To the maker of the Amroth and Nimrodel Banner,

I just wanted to say that I was flattered that you chose my work to
make your banner with, though I would like to ask that in the future
you ask for my PERMISSION before using my art. This was a
commissioned piece, and the rights to its use go to the person who
comissioned it and myself as per our contract. If you asked
permission from Jen to use this graphic, then it's okay, but if not,
please try to remember to do so the next time around.

I'm not upset and I don't want you to take down your banner, but
please just try to remember to email artists for permission before
using their art.

Thank you,
Trinity

Good point. I didn't question where the artwork came from when Marta put it
up for use. I will ask then in hindsight, and if you want me to remove my
two, I will. May I? By the way, it is a lovely image.

And that's a good point all around. Anyone making banners--and anyone who
has already made banners--from original artwork not their own should find
out if permission is needed and if so, obtain it. If your banner is in
question, let me know, and I'll move them all to a temporary holding folder
on the Yahoo site and remove them from the web site, until all is in the
clear.

Ainae-

This was my mistake. I'm not used to working with fanart, and it didn't
occur to me to ask. I apologised privately to Trinity and we're emailing
offlist right now. I'll let you know as soon as I figure out whether we
can use the banner.

No problem. As I've said beofre, I won't monkey with the sizes on the Yahoo
site (except to delee Full Size images to save space), but I do shrink them
for the web site.

They're all lovely! I do need a slight edit on one of them, however. The
award title is correctly The Nimrodel & Amroth Award and you've got the
names switched around. Can you fix and reupload please?

And I've moved the other three N & A banners to a Holding fo0lder until
further notice.

I'm sorry, Ainae, I had completely forgotten about those. That's what
I get for uploading stuff right before I go to bed! I'll make sure to
let you know if I upload anymore. And before I forget - I had to make
corrections on a few of the banners but it wouldn't let me delete the
old ones. If you've been looking through the banner folders you've
probably already found them, but I thought I'd let you know just in

Hmmm...Maybe because I edited the names the system thinks they are mine.
Which ones do you want me to delete? I think the Morgoth might be one of
them.

I have thought about this. I would like something for them. Being that I'm
a hopeless Legolas fan and there is no The Legolas Award though, I just may
be forced to insist that Coronation!Legolas adorn any such banners! ;-)

Any really strong objections?

It's not lost. You just need a little primer on the way these things are
going on. When the catagorizer sees a nomination for their category, they
put it into their spreadsheet and the Nominations table (in the Databases
section of the Yahoo site). That's where Winter Fire is right now. Posted
there on 5/29/04.

At the same time, when an Author Contactor sees an author that falls into
their alotted letters (mine are W-Z, for example), they contact the author.
They put the information in the Author Contact table in the Database.

Cuthalion is not yet in the Author Contact table.

Then, periodically (usually once a day), I go through the Nominations
database and cross reference it with the Author Contact table to see which
stories are 1) nominated and 2) approved by the author. (The dates help this
a great deal!) Once they are approved at both stages (a story might not be
approved for nomination if some part of the form was missing), I put them on
the web site. The ones on the web site are 100% official and in. If you
look at the bottom of the website list of Nominations it says it was updated
yesterday and has 393 of 434. Which means there are 434 in the Nominations
table in the Databases section, but only 393 are 100% official yet.

I hope that clears it up.

> Could somebody who knows where stories hide before they go up
> on the Nominations list please check into this for me?

Check the Nominations table in the database. If you don't see a story that
you nominated there, give a shout. It may be that the categorizer hasn't
gotten to it yet. We're getting close to the end of Nomination Season so we
need to get these caught up if they're not.

It's a beautiful graphic, and I think I might take a crack at it. Thanks!

As for yours, it still needs a little work. Words and Numbers, don't worry.
You've got "MEFA" and "2004" in there in some form which is good. You've
also got the award title, but not in the correct form: The Nimrodel & (or
and) Amroth Award is how it should be. Others have put "for X Fiction" at
the end and that's okay, too.

So, just add a "The" and an "Award" to that and I'll grab it and put it on
the web site.

And so I have! I've made a banner and a button. They are named N&A #2 and
N&A #3. The #1 spot is for Marta as soon as she gets those two other words
on her banner.

So Marta, when you re-upload your banner, name it N&A #1

Lovely! I just cropped the white space off the bottom of it for you and
reuploaded it. And it is now gracing our website as well!

Ah, okay. Didn't remember (that is a problem since the MegaStress) and/or
didn't realize that was you. It wasn't in the Author database, but I'll put
it in there now.

Nomination Season: only one week to go! Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 08, 2004 - 10:21:04 Topic ID# 1300
We still have one week to nominate stories. Take a look at the Category
Viability table and see if you can't think of any good stories to fit those
non-viable categories. I'm espically hoping we can find one more mystery (or
I have a story that might be moved to that category as it is the nominator's
2nd choice for category anyway). It's a main category and we want to see it
viable. (Note, this catgory may not be around next year because of its low
population this year.)

Don't worry if you have a story you want to nominate and it doesn't fit one
of those non-viable categories. We'll be ablet o move them around as need
be, or leave them right in the default main category. Nominate anything you
think is worthy.

And, consider helping the Staff. If you know one of the authors who has not
given us approval yet, contact them for us and see if you can get their
permission. Just forward their answer to me if you get one. We'd hate to
drop stories from the nominations just because we never got an answer from
an author. The deadline for author approval is the end of Check Ballot
Season: June 30th.

Also, if you nominated a story that's not on the web site yet, do the
following:
1) check the Nominations database. Is it in there?
a. if not, give a polite shout out here on the list
b. if yes, but the Staff Approval column is marked No, check the
reason. We may be missing a piece of information. If it is
marked No with no reason, give a polite shout-out here on the list
2) check the Author Approval database
a. if the author has approved it, wait one day. If it doesn't show
up then on the web site, let me know.
b. if the author has declined it, well, just let it go.
c. if the author hasn't replied yet, see the above paragraph about
helping the Staff
d. if the author isn't listed, give a polite shout-out on the list
here and see the above paragraph about helping the Staff.

Author contactors, you might want to contact your non-replying authors thus
far and let them know of the deadline. It might encourage them to answer.

That's about it. Carry on!

I changed my mind! This one is open to anyone who wants to make a Nomination
button.

Buttons must be no larger than the ones I uploaded earlier (in
Photos/Nominee Buttons &
http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/nombuttons.html)

Buttons must contain one of these sets of words:
2004 MEFA Nominee
Nominee MEFA 2004

Buttons must be named Nom #x (x being the next number up from what is
already posted).

And be sure to let me know if you upload one so I can get it on the website.


That's it!

Let the authors you know that were nominated know that these are now
available.

I think once their story is on the web list of Nominations (thus,
offically approved), they can choose any one they want. They may
want to check back later though to see if one they like better has

I do. She's had to go offline for a while due to some personal

Sindohte, Mora - do you guys know another email address to contact

Well if we can't reach her by the end of the month, her story can still be
eligible next year. RL happens and sometimes it happens hard. This I

Don't be too sorry! So far 92% of the stories nominated (on the database)
have been approved. I think that's pretty awesome.

But anyway, yes, I can start today.

BTW, I am pulling from the nominations database, so I can't be compaigning
for authors that aren't there yet.

Author Contact Campaign, Nominations and such Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 10, 2004 - 20:24:05 Topic ID# 1334
Somewhat successful. I got 4 or 5 responses already! One came back
undeliverable though. Anyone know an alternative e-mail address for Lady
Alyssa and/or Random Dent of the Bagenders?
We presently have 416 of 449 stories official! That's 93%! That should be
even higher after this weekend.
And in other news: Elves/Drabble is now Viable!
There is still time to nominate. You have until midnight central US on
Tuesday to get them in!

New Elves Award Banner aka Maglor's sense of Humour Posted by Tinni June 11, 2004 - 4:20:49 Topic ID# 1337
It is a sunny autumn (I live in the southern hemisphere) day, and
Maglor and Tinni are just sitting and relaxing.

Maglor: You know Tinni, I have just discovered a way to really tick
off Goldilocks aka Glorfindel AND break the hearts of Legolas
fangirls by exposing that Pansy elf as... well a pansy once and for
all. Best of all you get to put in another banner entry for the MEFA
fanart competition.

Tinni: O this can't be good.

Maglor: A but it's brillient!

So Maglor dragged a reluctant Tinni to the computer and they created
a banner that you can view in the photos section.

Tinni: But why would this tick Goldi... I mean Glorfindel off.

Maglor: *grins* Trust me it will.

Tinni: *groan* I think I am going to go have some chocolate.

Re: Nominations, how are we doing, categorizers? Posted by Kate June 11, 2004 - 5:11:22 Topic ID# 1320
My databases (The Hobbit and Romance) are all up to date, aside from
the nominations that have come in after this message. I'll be putting
them (if any) into my databases after this. Might take me a couple of
days to get the site database up to date, but that's it.

Oh, and by the way Ainae - I've got a few in romance that could
probably be grouped together by secondary category. I'd say we could
have viable Romance-Elves, Romance-Drama and possibly Romance-Hobbits
categories.

From: Mithril Awards [mailto:mithrilawards@yahoo.com]

To: mithrilawards@yahoo.com
Subject: Mithril Awards: Voting now open

Voting is now open for the 2004 awards. The key points, plus the answers to
some questions we've been asked are...

Voters this year get the choice of all semi-finalists works (whose authors
wished to be included), so there are well over 200 stories, poems & critical
essays, ranging from novels to drabbles, included in the 'ballot paper'.

In response to feedback last year, we've upped the number of voting
categories, and there are now seven to choose from (the new ones were
selected by a public
poll):

Best Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit
Best Silmarillion
Best Character Piece
Best Drama/Action Adventure
Best Humour*
Best Romance/Erotica -- Het
Best Romance/Erotica -- Slash

[*Yes, Humour is in there -- it unfortunately got missed off some of the
early mailshots.]

Voters may fill in only one 'ballot paper', but they may vote in as many or
as few categories as they wish.
People need not have nominated to vote. Each work is listed in a single
voting category, as selected by the author. There are lists of
semi-finalists, by voting categories and by judged categories, on the awards
site.

To vote, fans need to use the online form at the awards site
(http://www.viragene.com/tolkien). Voting will close on Sunday 27 June.

That's all I can think of, but don't hesitate to ask if there's anything
unclear. And don't forget to cast your own votes!

Cheers

Hi all!

Anybody moved to nominate any of my fics has my full permission to do
so. Do me a favor though and let me know you did so, so I can make
certain the fic is visible. To the ones who did - thanks very much -
muchly appreciated.

Shall now sit back and wait for the deluge of email notifications
certain to follow...

NOT!

hehe - but thanks to those who do think anything of mine is worth
nominating.

Thanks!

And remember folks, when adding stories to the databse...
1) Use this format for the date: 6/11/04 (so that they are uniform and
searchable)
2) Put the date in that you enter them, not the date they were nominated. I
just found osme new 6/9's (in this format 06-09-04, so I don't know if they
were in there before and just not sorted along with the other sor if they
were just entered today by a different date).

With 450+ stories, I want to be able to find the new additions easily so I
can add them to the web site without scrounging through the whole list.

Thanks.

Hi Ainaechoiriel,
do I understand this correctly when I say:
any story nominated this year and not being WIP
cannot be nominated again next year ?

Wouldn't that deprive us of many good stories ?
I would think this year there will be many stories nominated,
which yields a large pool of probably very good stories.
Why couldn't those stories not gaining an award this year
be nominated again next year ?
Or just let them in the pool for next year and add new ones.
I'm sure you have good arguments against this.
Can you elucidate me ?

Best wishes from Elanor
who hesitates to nominate further stories
as there are already so many nominated

Sorry: Rating: PG-13

Thought it were General, but found after your question PG-13

probably because of the bold speech and the hints on infidelity.
No further comments from author.

Yes

No. There's nothing keeping us from reading any stories at any time.

> I would think this year there will be many stories nominated,
> which yields a large pool of probably very good stories.

Yes, but few people will read more than half of those stories. Any
reader/voter only needs to read the stories that catch his/her interest.
And they will likely branch out, too, into stories they didn't think would
interest them, but turned out to be very good.
(Happened to me this year with the alt.startrek.creative awards. I read some
DS9 stories that weren't about Dr. Bashir. Or any of the main cast. Or
even any of the guest cast. And I read the best DS9 story I read this year
because I did that.)

> Why couldn't those stories not gaining an award this year be
> nominated again next year ?

Because there are 31000 other stories still that weren't even nominated this
year. Because they still get feedback (most likely) and recognition this
year. And because that might be seen as really unfair.

> Or just let them in the pool for next year and add new ones.

If you think there are too many stories this year, and we did that, everyone
would likely be afraid to even bother because of the size of the pool next
year. Or the next. It would grow exponentially. Or, say a reader sees a
story listed that they commented on last year. They may not bother to try
and write something again this year. The story gets even fewer "votes"
because all but the new people have already read it and commented the year
before.

> I'm sure you have good arguments against this.
> Can you elucidate me ?

I hope I have above. But also because I based these off of the
alt.startrek.creative Awards. The only time a story can run again is 1) it
was a WIP before or 2) there was significant revision from the time it ran
before. I don't see that as a bad rule.

Remember that in that model (ASC) they don't even have nominations. They
simply have every story that was posted to the group that year. We are
trying to simulate that as best we can, without having a group. Okay, so we
have a group. But not wanting to be an archive or replicate other writing
lists (because hey, I don't have time for the ones I already have, do you?),
we don't have a group to which one can post stories. [And if we did,
consider that the only stories posted would be stories from members. We
have over 200 authors represented presently. We have less than 140 members.]
So we need to build a pool each year. That is what the Nominations are
doing. It's just building that pool. It's as close a simulation of the
ASC's I can get without having an archive or newsgroup of my own.

We really don't want to see the same stories year after year here. There are
literally thousands more out there. And by this time next year, there could
be another 10,000 more. LOTR has a HUGE pool of stories written. Having
them run once is plenty. I don't think it would be fair to the reader, or
the writers, to have a story run more than once (unless it is a WIP--and
then only twice). It might cost the "new" stories some readers as well. By
only having stories not nominated this year, we guarantee a pool of "new"
stories for next year.

Sorry, but this is one rule not open for changing any further.

> Best wishes from Elanor
> who hesitates to nominate further stories as there are
> already so many nominated

Don't worry about that. Nominate the ones you think are great. I really
doubt that any one story will have a comment/vote from every member. The
more members we have, the more likely it will be that each story be
commented/voted for by at least one member (who did not nominate it).

You're just going to have to trust me on this one at least for this year. I
wasn't around the first year they did the alt.startrek.creative awards (I
came in on the second year, I think). I wonder if there wasn't a lot of
"trust me" going on then as well. I think once you see how it works this
year, and that it does work, you won't need so much faith again next year.
You'll know for yourself that it works. Anyone else familiar with the ASC
Awards want to chime in?

Just think, the one story you hesitate to nominate might be the one story
that would blow all the others away in its brilliance. Or not. It might
just be the one story that really really moves one particular reader. Or
surprises another.

Status of Nominations: Update Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 12, 2004 - 1:04:20 Topic ID# 1359
We have 459 stories presently listed in the database and more to come. Who
thinks we'll hit 500? I think we might! We have 443 nominations on the web
site. That's 97%! So that last round of Author Contact Campaigning went very
well! Can you believe there are only 10 authors in the Author contact
database with a "not yet" next to their names?!
And we even have a few new members who joined us in time to put some
last-minute nominations in! We've got until 11:59pm US Central on June 15th
to post new nominations, so there are still a few days!
Speaking of author contacting. I realized I haven't really let any authors
know (unless they are on this group) that there are nominee buttons out
there. Can I get the categorizers to gather e-mail addresses from their
spreadsheets and let the author's know? Send them to
http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/nombuttons.html.
Actually we still might end up doubling up. How about I just wait until I
have all the spreadsheets, then I'll gather all the e-mail addresses and
send them then.
Thanks.

Naming the Stones has already been nominated in the Silm section, but
is obviously part of a series of stories, now nominated in the Elves
section. Do we need to contact the author and ask if she wants them
all together in the Elves section?

Hi Ainaechoiriel,
have you a suggestion where I find info how to
decide between G and PG ?

Didn't find info on

I just took the ratings by author.

Rating for me would be G but I need to read a guidance
about rating if I have to do this myself.

Secondly: Categorization
If still possible I would prefer:
Romance 2nd Choice
Humor 3rd choice
Drama and LoTR Subcategory Suggestion.
But if I understand correctly
the author will decide how the
story will be categorized in the end.

For me this story is a realistic love story
with humorous and angsty allusions.

I made the categorization as described in
http://home.earthlink.net/~ainae/mefa/Awards%20FAQ.html Part IV D
Probably I misunderstood the rules.

I will decide between G and PG
for all the stories
when I have found a guide.

Best wishes Elanor

PG, no profanity, nudity, no violence
but maybe remembrances of battle are accounted
already as violence
As this is a 'love-story' it is not for small children

Update on why there hasn't been an update Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 14, 2004 - 2:08:12 Topic ID# 1380
I was catching up on Men, Elves, and Hobbits nominations last evening as
well as adding approved stories to the web site. Then I was working on a
few revisions to a story of mine. The I heard a thump on the porch. One of
the plastic chairs blown over, I figured. I figured correctly, but that was
of little consequence. My power went out shortly after and remained out
until 8:30 this evening. I briefly woke from my nap to acknowledge that I
finally had power again, then went back to sleep. Until 10. I hadn't
planned on a 6 hour nap. Ah well. Past time for my weekly Fanfiction
Facilitation Communication with Dwim, but I called her anyway. And then I
called T-Mobile to complain about the lack of signal in my house, yet again,
and the fact that I couldn't conference my home phone so that I wouldn't
have to a) stand at my kitchen sink (the only place I can even get an
unreliable signal) to speak to Dwim or b) use my calling card and actually
pay for the long distance call. I ended up doing b. They finally managed
to tell me that there is nothing they can do about my signal and that the
signal wasn't strong enough to conference. And they can't change my rate
plan to another rate plan (my sister has the other phone on the account and
went over so we need more minutes) without a) losing the free evenings or b)
re-upping for another year.

To say I'm happy with T-Mobile is a gross understatement. So I promised them
I'd tell everyone I know NOT to use T-Mobile. That's why I'm bothering to
spill all of this here. I have to keep that company for 10 more months.
Grrrrrrrr...

Well, finally getting through with them, it's 2 am. Which is why there's no
update on the web site and I haven't even read any of the posts here (or
anywhere else) since Saturday evening. I'll try and catch up tomorrow.

Hobbits Category Awards Posted by Kate June 14, 2004 - 6:38:29 Topic ID# 1381
I've been thinking about this for some time, and I thought I should
finally make mention of it. Ainaechoiriel, you are more than welcome
to tell me to go and sit in the corner if you wish, after this
message :P Especially considering the trouble we had with the Elves
award titles.

Looking at the titles you've chosen for the hobbits category, they
basically point to Frodo as the Ring-bearer of Bag-End, Merry as the
Master of Buckland and Pippin as the Thain of the Great Smials. Merry
and Pippin's awards I have no problem with. It's Frodo's I've been
thinking about.

We already have a Frodo Baggins award, correct? In the drama
category, I believe. Ainae, I seem to remember you mentioning that
you didn't really want to have two awards with the same name.
While "The Frodo Baggins Award" and "The Ring-bearer of Bag End
Award" are two different names, essentially, they mean the same thing.

My suggestion is for a "Mayor of Hobbiton" or "Gardener of Bag End"
award, both of which would point towards Sam, the only hobbit who
does not have his own award. Thoughts? Complaints? Anyone just think
I'm too obsessive about hobbits?

As far as I know, there's only been one submission for the Ring-
bearer award, which was made by me anyway, and I can easily make a
Sam award instead. If there had been any more awards submitted, I
certainly would not have annoyed everyone like this!

I'll get off my soapbox now :P

Thanks, Bindi! They look great! They are a bit big but I shrunk them for the

Nominee Banners: Important Announcement Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 14, 2004 - 10:58:14 Topic ID# 1384
Authors and nominators and friends and whoever else:

The question was posed to me privately of whether or not we should let
authors put up nominee buttons now. The Mithrils, I believe, don't, as they
don't want solicitations of votes. We do have somewhat of the same
concern. We don't want solicitations of votes for *your* story or stories.
We want you to encourage people to sign up and participate in the whole
contest. Frankly, if we see anyone who votes on just one story or just the
stories of one author, we're going to be suspicious of vote-stacking, which
if you look at the FAQ is against the tules and cause dor disqualifications.

So, yes, authors can put the buttons up now, but they should link to the
main page of the MEFAs, and if anyone is soliciationg votes, they should be
solicitating overall participation.

This is the relevant part of the FAQ:

V.D. Disqualification reasons
2. d. Authors encouraging vote stacking (by bringing in
new members who
only vote on their entries) will be disqualified
from the Author
categories and have their stories and poems
disqualified as well.
3. Authors
a. Violation of V.A.2 will cause offender to be
disqualified for
Author awards
b. Authors encouraging vote stacking (by bringing in
new members who
only vote on their entries) will be disqualified
from the Author
categories and have their stories and poems
disqualified as well.

New poll for MEFAwards Posted by MEFAwards@yahoogroups.com June 14, 2004 - 11:05:13 Topic ID# 3
Enter your vote today! A new poll has been created for the
MEFAwards group:

As there is already a Frodo Baggins
Award, it has been suggested that The
Ring-Bearer of Bag End Award be changed
to The Mayor of Hobbiton Award. There
is presently only one Ring-Bearer Award
Banner, by the artist making the
request of a change. Therefore, this is
doable. But should we?

o Yes, change it.
o No, leave it the same.


To vote, please visit the following web page:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MEFAwards/surveys?id=1269150

Note: Please do not reply to this message. Poll votes are
not collected via email. To vote, you must go to the Yahoo! Groups
web site listed above.

Thanks!

By "got it" do you mean you have approval, or you have the email? The
author's an "L", which I think means I should be contacting her. If she

Nominations? Posted by bljean@aol.com June 14, 2004 - 18:37:38 Topic ID# 1405
I sent a list of nominations in to "Ainaechoiriel" at
mefaadmin@earthlink.net, was this right?

Please pardon me, I am an internet ignoramus.

Thank you. Looking forward to lots of lovely reading! (Though it means the
writing may very well slack off for a time, not necessarily a bad thing...)

Poor Pippin. Here is is traumatized from being exposed to the Eye of
Sauron. Everyone thinks he's been really stupid *again* and no one
gives him any sympathy for being tortured by Sauron... except
Legolas. Pippin really didn't do so badly, when you get right down to
it.

========================================================

Thanks!

MEFA Banner Posted by Kate June 14, 2004 - 22:31:40 Topic ID# 1418
I made up an animated Aragorn banner, which I've put in the MEFA
Banners and Buttons folder. I think you'll have to view it in full-
size to actually see it (it begins completely black). Ainae, if you'd
prefer, I can probably make up a non-animated version. I just thought
it'd be cool to have an animated one :P

Nomination Announcement: To anyone new or who even thinks they are Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 14, 2004 - 22:51:21 Topic ID# 1420
Please, nominations do not go to me personally. Send them to the group:
mefawards@yahoogroup.com.

I've gotten four so sets of nominations in my inbox today. I will forward
anyone's first one on to the group as an honest mistake. But beyond that
it's your responsibility. If you want your nominations to count, you must
send them to the group.

LadyAranel, I had a bounce message so I don't know if you got my latest mail
on this. I got a second set of nominations from you. Please resend them,
but to the group. Do not send them to me personally.

Thanks.

Well, there's just less than 24 hours of Nomination Season to go!

I had a lot of catching up to do today! We have 512 stories (minus those
not approved) in the Nominations Database! 483 are approved by their
authors! Hobbits/Poetry became viable today. Hobbits/Drabble will be
viable once we have Marigold's permission.

Do take a look at the Category Compatibility table and see if there are any
good stories that match those categories that you can nominate.

I know I still have at least one more nomination in me this year. Now's the
time, folks!

Thanks for all the effort you all have put into helping this be a successful
kick-off to a new Awards scheme. I think it's going to be great!

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.

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.

How does it have no familiar characters but romance partners of Pippin and
Diamond? Is this a mistake?

Not a problem! It's not late until 12:01 AM US Central. And that's still a

Drama/Drabble is now a viable category! We've got 504 stories presently
official (We're holding at 95% right now). And I'm hoping that number willl
climb as authors approve and the rest of the stories get loaded into the
database.

Just about 30 minutes left to get any last-minute nominations in!

Yahoo has been acting up for me all evening also. I can't even get my messenger to open, and my yahoo groups page isn't loading either. I'm giving up for the evening. It will be tomorrow before I get to add anything to the database. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this email comes through okay.

Unless something comes through at the last minute, Crossovers should be completely up to date. Would everyone who nominated in this category please check your nominations there and make sure I got them added correctly?

I have a Silm nomination from yesterday and quite a few to add in the Lord of the Rings category, but both categories were all caught up over the weekend. So unless the nomination was made yesterday or today, please check those two categories as well and make sure I didn't miss getting your nominations in there. Thanks very much!

Anna

PS. I asked Nancy Brooke, Silvermoon Lady, Bitten Buggy, Saralitazie, and Moralanqua to email their permission for my nominations of their stories and they all said they would. So hopefully those should have arrived or will arrive soon.

Elves, Hobbits, and Drama have Drabble categories that are viable. Those
that are not viable will be moved around to form viable ones in other
categories.

Nomination Season is Closed! Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 16, 2004 - 0:11:55 Topic ID# 1461
That's it. Time's up. Nomination Season is now closed. Check Ballot Season
will begin.

What does that mean if you're not an Author Contactor or Categorizer?
Nothing much for now. Just sit back, relax, and start reading. Remember you
can vote early by typing up your comments and saving them to a file on your
hard drive. Just don't send them to the group before Voting Season. Hold
onto them.

Pretty soon, I'll have a bigger, better Nominations page out with more
information such as ratings and reasons for ratings.

And pretty soon we'll have the totals for nominated and approved stories.
Authors will have until the 30th to get us their permission.

The categorizers will begin organizing all the nominations, seeing what
other subcategories can and should be made (Don't want to make a main
category inviable by too much subcategorizing!), and then the first Check
Ballot will come out. This will be what the final ballot will look like, but
it's purpose will be to check for errors. There will be 1-4 Check Ballots
for each main category (with their subcategories) before the final and
official Ballots come out.

New Awards for Crossovers Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 16, 2004 - 8:57:19 Topic ID# 1466
We just joined a link exchange with another new Awards group, this one is
for Crossovers and aptly named the Crossover Awards. I asked that they
encourage their LOTR crossover writers to give us a thought next year so I
said I'd make a note over here. We didn't get a lot of Crossovers, but we
did get enough to have a viable category, so that's good. But Crossover
writers and readres may want a place where they can be recognized even more.
Well, there you go! Here's the link:
http://www.geocities.com/crossoverawards/links.html

We also have link exchanges with these other awards:

The Mithril Awards: http://www.viragene.com/tolkien

The Aniron Awards: http://www.anironawards.741.com

And the Masque Awards: http://www.trinitycross.net/masque/
(This one involves Real Person Fic, something not allowed here, but members
may be interested.)

And I believe Marta is thinking about making an awrds group of her own.
We'll certainly want a link exchange with her as well. :-)

I just did a quick scan of the nominations on the web site, and I
recognized a few stories that could be subcategorized (this info is
probably on teh categorizer's spreadsheet, but it'll help in
determining subcat viability):

"At Last" (Romance cat) by Jennifer Lee and Elbee is a WIP

"All Ye Fellowship of Nine" (LoTR cat) by Azalais is Poetry

"Song-Fight at the Swan and Cygnet Saloon" (Humor cat) by Chathol-
linn is Poetry

"Promises" (LoTR cat) by Viv is Drabble (or a series thereof)

"A Veiled Light" (Silm cat) by Andreth is WIP

"Fell Fire" (Silm cat) by Finch has romance partners Aegnor/Andreth

needed to be marked as such. That's why the nomination form was changed to
say that those three were mandatory subcategories.

I'll go through and change these and see what that does to viability. If
*anyone* knows of any other story listed being a WIP, poem, or drabble, let
us know ASAP.

Thanks.

Oops Posted by shippingindustry June 16, 2004 - 17:01:54 Topic ID# 1472
"As the Gentle Rain" might need to be changed to WIP. It began
posting in March of 2004, but wasn't finished until June.

Is that how it works?

Possibly a dumb question Posted by shippingindustry June 16, 2004 - 17:15:59 Topic ID# 1473
Maybe even probably.

Have read the FAQ and rules. I might have missed something; things
are very busy around here until bedtime, and after the little ones go
to bed dh is usually the one online, not me. So if I missed the
obvious, well, I can make lots of excuses.

I see the schedule goes like this:

VI. Schedule
A. Nomination Season: April 30th through June 15th
B. Check Ballot Season: June 15th through June 30th
C. Reading Season: July 1st through September 15th
D. Voting Season: September 16st through October 30th
E. FanArt Season: November 1st through November 15th
F. Awards Results: Announced by November 15th

I'm not sure what you mean by "check ballot" season. Will go back and
look through old messages if I get the time. But teen is breathing
down my neck for her online time, so maybe not.

I see "reading season" and "voting season" are separate. Does this
mean we read but withhold our comments until after the reading season
closes? (I assume this would be in order not to influence other
readers?)

I need to go back and read more about the FanArt Season and what
that's all about. Must admit I concentrated on the stories aspect of
it all up until now.

Thanks.

Hey, Lin. "Check ballot" season is more or less an admin thing. Those of
us helping out will put stories in the right categories, contact the
authors and make sure we have everything correct, and finalize the
ballots for each award.

I nominated Katharra's "Ripple Effect," a LOTR-Buffy the Vampire

the group site, I don't see it in the Crossover category on the main

be completed by April 30 to be entered as a finished work, and "As a Gentle

Hi Barb,

If it's showing up in the database but not on the website, that's
probably because we don't have author approval.

Is Katharra different from Kathira (you)? If so, I need to send her an
email. I don't recognise the name, so I have a feeling that I slipped up
here. Would you contact me offlist with her email address?

This came up earlier when a WIP (when we started) got finished. I guess I
haven't changed the FAQ for it. But since by the time we'll be reading the
story and voting on the story, it will be complete, it would have an
advantage over the other incompletes (since it has an end). So thus, it
gets moved in with the rest of the complete stories.

I believe I spoke too soon on whether Mystery was viable.

Looking at my spreadsheet, I notice that "From Riches to Rags" has
"Mystery" as a second choice category. I suggest we move "From Riches to
Rags" from "Hobbits" (its first choice) to "Mystery." Is this doable?

I'll hold off on adding the other four mystery nominations to the

Marta, I'm showing five for Mystery:

The Next Step
The Nature of Starlight
Shades of the Immortal
Arda Unmarred
Adagio

That said, I'm still not adverse to switching From Riches to Rags, but since
Mystery does appear viable, I'd like to ask the author's permission first.

Update or Just so you know what's going on Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 17, 2004 - 21:26:18 Topic ID# 1485
The rest of the categorizers and I are trying to find home for orphan WIPs,
Drabbles, and Poems. In other words, WIPs, Drabbles, and Poems that are
presently in non-viable categories. In some cases we were able to move one
or two to make another category viable. We were going to move one story
from a viable category (Drama/Incomplete) to a new one to make it viable
(LOTR/Incomplete), but then we found out one of our LOTR/Incomplete's was no
longer incomplete. Thus the new category wasn't viable anymore.

So there we are. We still have some orphans, but less than we had yesterday.

We have 9 orphans still. 4 of those are crossing their fingers that
Despised and Hated will get approved by the author and thus make that
category viable.

Now, I'm going to let you in on a little dilema of mine, just in case one of
you happens to really like math, or has a lot of time on his or her hands..

This has to do with not orphaned stories, but not-yet-approved stories:

The Nominations database has 555 stories in it.
When I subtract the 2 that were declined by their authors, I get 553.
When I check how many stories I have on the web site, I get 543.
IF All the stories are in the Nominations database (and I haven't found any
that aren't)
AND only approved ones make it into the web site list
AND there is no story on the website that isn't in the Nominations database
THEN there should only be 10 awaiting approval in the Author Approval
database.
But there are 16.
Help me out here? What happened?
Either someone who really likes math will set me straight, or someone with a
heck of a lot of time on their hands, will check the web site against the
database or vice versa. Otherwise..this is why we have Check Ballots.
Hopefully the error will come out somewhere!

But wait, it's worse! The math, I mean. We found some stories last night
that we had missed in the nominations. (Which is why we have a Check Ballot
Season, to fix errors!)

So now, this is the math problem:

Okay there is still a math problem:

561 stories in the Noms database.
-2 declined
_________
559
-550 approved.
_________

9 unapproved.

But we still have 17 (found one more) unapproved.

Kind of makes your head swim, doesn't it?

I've read part of it. It's set during LotR, so that would work. It's a
modern-girl-in-Middle-earth piece, with a lot of humour built in. I'd
put it more under Drama than Adventure. I'm not sure whether I'd
classify it as Humour because it's not *all* funny.

Did she ever finish it? I'm not sure.

It doesn't look like it. Okay, we'll put LOTR, then Drama, then Adventure.

1) Check the web site. Is it there?

If no, go to No. 2.
If yes, go to No. 2 anyway

2) Check the Nominations database. Is it there?

If yes, great!
If no, post to the list with the title and author. And go to number 3.

If you said no to No. 1, read the next question
Does it say why it's not on the web site (Approved by Staff field)?

If yes, perhaps you can fill in the required information
If no, post to the list with the title and author. And go to number 3.

3) Check the Author Approval database? Is it there with a Yes after it?

If yes, great!
If yes, but you answered no on No. 1 and/or No. 2, post to the list with the

If it's there but it has a "not yet", and you are not the author, try
contacting the author yourself. We've tried, but they haven't answered yet.

If it's there but it has a "not yet", and you are the author, e-mail
mefaadmin@earthlink.net to give us your approval.

I dont know if this helps or makes it worse, but I found a couple of
duplicates on the website (not the database).

Blood and Smoke (Silm category) and Night in Hollin (Men) are both
listed twice.

Also, The link for Ring of Water (Romance) is not working...there's
a bunch of stuff at the beginning so it tries to go to angelfire
instead of Hasa.

In adventure, there is a story by Shakes listed by two different
names, Messages and Messengers (the correct one is Messages), so
there's another double...\

Hope that helps clear up some of the math stuff...

I did a Find on the page and only came up with one Blook and Smoke, but I
did find two Night in Hollin's. Ah, just found the second Blood and Smoke.
Didn't find it before because there was a typo.

Okay, bad cut and paste accident. It will be fixed on my next upload, as
will those duplicates.

Update: The math problem.... Posted by Ainaechoiriel June 19, 2004 - 2:01:27 Topic ID# 1494
Okay, we're getting closer. I'm going back through every nomination I can
find to see if we've missed some stories.And we have. So I added a few more
to the database tonight. One of them was on the web site but not the Noms
page. So that brings us to:

570 total nominations
-3 author declines
---------
567 nominations in the database
-553 on the web site
---------
14 not yet approved stories.

But we have 16.

So we're only 2 off now. Thanks for those who found the duplicates, etc.
We've almost got it right!

Please note, going through all the nominations may take a day or two. I've
only done 5/1 though 5/15 so far and that was just over half the posts that
had these words in the body: *Story Title!

request of a change. Therefore, this is
doable. But should we?

Well, looks like a landslide to me. I officially change the 1st Place
Hobbits story award title from The Ring-Bearer of Bag End Award to The Mayor
of Buckland Award.

The awards banner that was in the Hobbits folder for The Ring-Bearer... has
been moved to the Zholding folder in the Photos section. (Why "Z"Holding?
So it would move to the end of the alphabet and leave all the categories on
the first page.)

Not a problem. Those obsessive/compulsive tendencies of mine can be very

;-) Yeah, but I'm about out of ideas. That's why we'll need your (the
members) eyes on the lists and check ballots. We are still 4 stories off,
but I don't know any other ways to try and find them.

We do have 20 we are waiting for author approvals on, so those might go in,
but the math still says we're 4 off. I don't get it.

So, everyone really needs to put their Memory Caps on and try and remember
which stories they had that were nominated and which stories they
nominated--and any others they can think of--and let us know if something
still shows missing.

I can do a specific title search if someone thinks something is missing. If
we can find the missing nomination, we'll put it right in.

I'm going to go ahead and post the first 3 check ballots for Rohan, Numenor
and Orcs here soon.

There are two dots between www and fanfiction.net. The link on the website
doesn't work either so it must be wrong there too.

Thanks!

I just checked out my own categories (I was categorizing Horror and
Mystery). The only oddity I see is that "Iadel" by Tinni is not in the
proper order, alphabetically.

Did I not have that in the right order on my spreadsheet? I had it wrong
at one point, but could have sworn I fixed it.

Other than that, though, everything looks fine.

It should have sorted automatically. I'll have a look.

Well, it looks right. Iadel starts with I which comes after C (Coavalta) and
before T (The Complexities of Power).

Note that were are leaving the articles at the beginning, so that's how they
alphabetize.

> Other than that, though, everything looks fine.

Thanks! Now we just need to wrap up the other ten categories. I think I
can wrap up Elves, Men, and Hobbits, for now.

One that ought to be in the database, but isn't Posted by shippingindustry June 19, 2004 - 14:19:07 Topic ID# 1406
I nominated this at the same time I sent in lots of others, but it is
not appearing in the database anywhere, and isn't on the "Horror"
list on the website.

The permission was sent in a following message, along with permission
for "Shining Through"

Could you please look into this?

Sorry about that long post Posted by bljean@aol.com June 19, 2004 - 14:23:35 Topic ID# 1527
I thought I clipped just the one nomination and left the rest, but somehow
the post took everything.

I forgot that I couldn't access fanfic.net at the time I sent in those
nominations. I did send a later message with the URL for "The Other" but forgot to
include it in the message I just sent, so here it is again:

I think you may have solved our math problem! Cross your fingers....

The Other is on the old Noms list but not in the Horror spreadsheet or Noms
database. I will correct it.

All the others are there.

Well, you solved part of the math problem. We are now only 3 off!

This is set the morning after Aragorn's coronation, so it's post
Ring-War but still in the Third Age. I'm not sure if you want to
recategorize it, or perhaps just rename the subcategory to "post-Ring
War", or something like that?

Urk - this has totally the wrong sumamry! (I thought we had identified
and corrected this :-( It's in a message from Marta on 3rd May.)

The correct summary is:

For the Ruling Steward and his sons, the personal is the political and
private acts can have public consequences. Faramir's odd behaviour on
his return from his first month as Captain of the Ithilien Rangers
troubles Denethor, both as a father and as Ruling Steward. An
unexpected meeting in a place neither thinks to find the other only
adds to the tension - and results in an order that, ten years later,
will have significant consequences in the War of the Ring.

Please excuse me, but I'm something of a grammar freak, and there should be
a questionmark at the end of that summary. If changing it is going to be a
huge faff, it's probably not worth it, but I just happened to notice while

Hi Ainae

I was also checking over my stories in the database and noticed that
"The Influence of Kindred Desires" (in the Romance category) is
missing the last word in the titled (ie it is just listed as being
called "The Influence of Kindred")

I'm also not sure if the summaries on this and on "Knight's
Service/Later" (also in Romance) are correct, but I can only find the
ones in the database/at the General Nominations page. Will these be
the summaries used in the final listing or are they merely brief ones
to allow stories to be distinguished? (If the latter, I'll wait for
the Romance check ballot to check these.)

Also, I would like Marta to be credited as co-author on "Old Will
Whitfoot" (in the Hobbits (Poetry) category) - the piece is a major
rewrite on my part of a version of the song Marta produced and I
wouldn't have written it otherwise.

Sorry to be a bother and keep up the good work :-D

Thanks, Liz

Oh no. Something like that is a very easy fix. Having me figure out when

Fourth Age Posted by Larian Elensar June 19, 2004 - 19:25:55 Topic ID# 1544
Encyclopedia of Arda says:

The last of the four ages chronicled by Tolkien, and the one about which least
is known (including its length). The Fourth Age was held to have begun with the
passing of the Ring-bearers over the sea from Mithlond on 29 September 3021
(Third Age), though in Gondor it was reckoned as beginning on 25 March of the
same year (the second anniversary of the Downfall of Barad-dýr).

Short ones were used in the Noms database and the original web page. (Still
exists for sorting and such). The full summary, should be in the original
spreadsheet which will become the basis of the new web page.

Romance is still being worked on a bit.

Okay, I've made changes to every Fourth Age subcategory I had. They are all
now Post-WOTR.
You'll see those changes on Check Ballot #2 for Elves, Hobbits, and Men.
You'll see them today on the web site.
I corrected the summary to Chance Meetings by Tanaqui
When checking for the ? on the end of the summary for In the Hands of the
Enemy, I noted that apparently the last line of the summary for The Seventh
Stone was cut off, but only on the check ballot. Both are right in the
spreadsheets, so they were just cut & paste problems and will be corrected
in the Mystery Check Ballot #2. The web site will be fixed today.

Now look at what you and Marta have done.... You've gone and made me do
research. And to top it off, you made me learn something. I think you
should be ashamed of yourselves.


;-)


Okay, I actually opened the book and looked at the timeline. I had thought
that the Fourth Age started when Aragorn took over as King. Nope, the Third
Age ends when Frodo goes over the sea.

I had originally put in sub-categories of Pre-LOTR and Post-LOTR but didn't
think they sounded very good. While Fourth Age just sounded so much
better.....

Guess I'll go back the other way.

I admit to confusion here. Una will correct me if she feels this is
the appropriate category, but I conside this story to be complete. It
is a tangent to CMC, and could stand on its own without reference to

Okay, but there needs to be some clue as to who the 'pairing' is. Remember
