Gauging Interest in Favorite H5-0 Story Awards  
In the words of Gaston: "I'm afraid I've been thinking!"

There seems to be a lull in the Hawaii 5-0 fandom at the moment. Maybe because of the hiatus? Maybe because the newness is off? I don't really know.

And here's where I've been thinking. We could take advantage of this apparent "down-time" to have the First Ever H5-0 Ohana Favorite Awards.

What? What is this you say? Glad you asked. Because this post is to gauge interest in the idea of having nominations and voting for favorite H5-0 stories. I'm willing to coordinate these "awards" if y'all are interested in seeing them come to fruition. I was thinking that we could have categories - for example:

Favorite story of 10,000+ words
Favorite story of 1,000-9,999 words
Favorite story of 999 words or less
Favorite Steve/Danny story
Favorite slash story not Steve and Danny
Etc.

The nominations would be open for 2-3 weeks, the voting could be open 2-3 weeks, and the winners could receive a cool banner for their website proclaiming that they won a 5-0 Ohana Favorite Award!

None of this could happen, though, if y'all aren't interested in participating - by participating I mean nominating, voting, etc.

Are you interested? Would you take a minute to complete the poll and let me know? Cool - thanks!!!

Would you consider songvids as well? I wouldn't mind helping there. I can't design banners and such, but I know vidding.

Absolutely! I'm wide open. I know nothing about vidding so you could be the resident expert!

Thanks! I'll keep you posted.

I'd love to help if you need it. I was a mod for a couple of years for the NCIS fanfic awards so I have some experience in running one.

Yes!!!
I absolutely accept your kind offer!! I am flying blind here because I've never done this before. But it seemed like the time for it!

I'll keep you posted as things progress! Thank you again!

I would support this very much because it also provides great to-read lists for everything from slash to gen!

Excellent! Thank you very much!!!

I agree with your assessment whole-heartedly!

I'd love to help if you need the hands, I used to assist with an academy awards style awads posting session in the Mag 7 fandom.

Thank you!!
Excellent! I'm sort of making this up as I go so any and all assistance will be greatly appreciated!!!

I'll add you to my list! Thanks again.

Would each of the major het pairings get their own category too? I'd hate to see them all compete against each other for one award when there's great Steve/Kono, Danny/Kono, Danny/Lori, Steve/Cath, etc.
Are 6 dogs too many?: beach chairtkeylasunset on January 29th, 2012 01:22 am (UTC)
Oh. Well. That's a good question. I was thinking all Het would be one big category. But I'm open to making different categories. Might make it easier, really.

My primary concern would that I would miss a category. I guess we could have an "other" category for the ones I miss, huh?

I'll pose your question to those good enough to volunteer to help!!!

Thanks for bringing it up!
dreamwind83: Steve Lickin' Gooddreamwind83 on January 29th, 2012 03:38 am (UTC)
I would love to help but not really sure how I could. My banner skills are sorely lacking. I would like to suggest maybe a a Best Fantasy AU, Best High School AU and a best Crossover category as well since there are some really good ones out there.

If you need help you can PM me or drop me a line: Dreamwind83@yahoo.com
Are 6 dogs too many?: beach chairtkeylasunset on January 29th, 2012 05:15 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your support! I already put favorite AU and favorite Crossover on the list. I'm not sure there are enough High School AUs to be its own category. But that's one of the reasons I'm looking for volunteers! Because I can't make all those decisions by myself!

I'll put you on the list of possible volunteers and contact you once I have a better of what I'm doing! :-)

Thanks again!

Also, if you look at other comms for ideas you may get some ideas for what kinds of categories work. Have you any idea for periods involved (monthly, annually, twice a year, whatever?). Montly can be a lot of work, but but with annual awards it's hard to remember all the good ones to nom them.

I also think self-nominations shouldn't be allowed (which someone else suggested) because it really should be from someone else who thinks it's good. Oh, and another point would be that fics that have already won shouldn't be eligible to be nommed again, probably... although whether you want to allow things that didn't win to qualify for nomination again is open to question?

Hmm... I'm sure I had another point, but I can't remember it now! I'm open to having my brain picked though! ;-)

My e-mail is haldoor42 at yahoo.com.au if you want to converse on YIM or via e-mail. ;-)

(and so much for saying I don't have time... ;-P )

I think in regards to repeat nominations, if a fic didn't win it should be allowed to be nominated again, likewise, if I fic won in one category and fits another category, it should be allowed to be nominated for that category, but not the one it previously won in.

does that make sense?

You are on!! Thank you so much. I'll put you on my list of possible volunteers!!!

(I'm not sure it's 'initiative' as much as it is avoiding the real world!)
Louheffermonkey on January 29th, 2012 03:04 pm (UTC)
Weirdly I was thinking on a fanfic awards for this fandom the last few days so I'd defintely be up to helping in any way I can if you needed any help that is.

PM me or email me at heffermonkey@gmail.com :D

as for icons/banners etc, my skills are minimal but I'd be happy to make attempts :D

Are 6 dogs too many?: beach chairtkeylasunset on January 29th, 2012 05:23 pm (UTC)
Great minds think alike!! It's so true.

I'll put you on my list of possible volunteers. Thank you so much!!!

This is a great idea!

I'm not sure I'll have the time to be able to help with the whole set up of things, but if you need someone to help make the banners I can definitely do that :)
I've made banners for fanfic awards before and I am currently a banner maker for several different icontest communities.
