I'm the lamest moderator on the planet. I lost a lot of momentum after the first round ended and didn't promote this second leg at all. I want to thank everyone who submitted nominations despite my lack of attention.
Today was supposed to be the deadline for nominations with voting beginning on the 7th. Rather than proceed with what we currently have or cancel this round and start up again in the summer, I'm going to extend the deadline until December 12. Voting will commence on the 14th (yes, just two days *g* but I don't want to start too close to holiday travel times) and I think we can still end voting on the 19th and get back on schedule for the winners to be announced on January 26.
Keep in mind that the Classic Fiction nominations are open for any story (RPS, FPS, Crossover) completed no later than December 31, 2005 and the FPS category is open to both LOTR and other FPS stories completed between July 1, 2006 and June 30, 2007. You can find specific guidelines here
My thanks to everyone for their support of the awards and for your patience during this first year. I think this has proved that the decision to have all the awards at one time and not in two rounds is probably a good one as it's hard to stay motivated and energetic for two different schedules.
