Hopefully, you have all read the "Rules and FAQ" thread, but I will include the basics here:
1) When nominating, you MUST put it in this format:
To nominate, you must start your post with "I want to nominate:" then put the title in Bold and the author in Italics. Please Underline the category in which you are nominating the story. Please include the URL to the first chapter in (parenthesis).
2) You may nominate yourself.
3) Nomination Begins: June 1st and Ends: July 11th. Any nominations outside of these two dates will not be considered. Note: All dates and time refer to PST (Pacific Standard Times)
4) For off-topic questions and comments please use the misnamed "First Awards are in July" thread. For any other questions or suggestions about the FPSSA rules or system, please refer to the "Rules and FAQ" thread.
5) Please don't post summaries of the nominations. Summaries will now be available on the Season 3 nominee page of the website (
Note To Judges:
You don't have to submit your "Judge's Pick" story immediately, just sometime before the end of the season.
I know I shouldn't have to say it, but I know someone will ask: Only judges can nominate a story for the "Judges Pick" category and are only allowed to submit one story.
Also, judges, I do encourage leaving reviews, but it is not mandatory. Though if you do choose to leave a review, please make it constructive, I do not support flaming.5/28/2009 . Edited 5/29/2009 #1

The Thin Line by Speak For The Noise for Judge's Pick. Wonderful love-hate story. Even if it doesn't win, definitely worth the read.6/10/2009 #14
No offense, but please pay attention, for all participants' sake, not to mention the mods:
There is no 'judge's pick' category - it's like honorable mention; the judge...picks it.
Nominate the story for one of the categories listed on the site.6/10/2009 #15

Haha, sorry, but I thought that was sooo funny. Yes, Velvet is actually Megan. Sorry about the misunderstanding. Thank you, though, for staying on top of that.
Just so we're clear, these are the judges and what they go by here on FP:
Diane= Dane Vampire Queen
Jaime= Dawn of the Night
I. Degolier= same
Hope none of the judges mind, this is just so we can avoid things like this in the future.6/10/2009 #17
Sorry for the misunderstanding - I hope I didn't sound insulting. I remember a lot of people getting mixed up about that last season.
So how 'bout I just leave the police duties to you guys from now on? ^_^ Sorry again.6/10/2009 #18

Alright, so the site that hosts the FPSSA website is down. It experienced some data corruption, so you may be running into some trouble with the website. I have checked out every page personally, and it seems to me that there's only problems with comments. But you may experience other problems, so I'm just giving you a heads up.
Also, because of this, I cannot update information until the site is up. But they have warned us that editing capabilities might still be down when they start running again.6/17/2009 #23
Okay, before I lose courage.
I want to nominate Heavenbound by Armith-Greenleaf, for the following categories: Best Non-mainstream Creature Story, Best Plot, Best Romance, Best Story That Never Seems to End (oops?) and Most Memorable Characters.6/21/2009 #24
