Welcome to the first Fringes of Algo Community Awards, the Muskies! As part of this year's anniversary celebration, these awards will recognize outstanding members of the community in many areas. Best of all, the winners are nominated and selected by you, the community members! It is now time to begin that selection with the nomination process!

When submitting nominations, please keep these rules in mind:
  • Nominations will be accepted only from accounts created on or before March 6, 2010 (Eastern Time).
  • You may nominate up to four entries for each category. If you submit more than four nominees for a category, only the last four will be counted.
  • You cannot nominate yourself or a work that you authored or co-authored.
  • To be eligible, the entry you are nominating must have been posted somewhere on the Fringes of Algo website before 12:00 am Eastern Time (GMT/UTC - 5) on March 7, 2010.

Also, please note that you are not required to nominate for every category. You are welcome to nominate for as many or as few as you wish. The same is true for the number of nominations in a category. You can submit up to four, but one or three is equally fine. The more valid nominations we get, the better, but there's also no pressure.

The top nominees in each category will be selected for the ballots. Voting will be available through the poll system on these forums during the week of March 14 - 20. The winners will be officially announced on March 23, the third anniversary of the community.

Here are the categories for which you can nominate entries:

  1. Best Single Chapter Fan Fiction
    This award recognizes your top choice of any story posted in the Fan Fiction section that consists of only one chapter.
  2. Best Multiple Chapter Fan Fiction
    This award recognizes your top choice of any story posted in the Fan Fiction section that consists of more than one chapter (or post).
  3. Best Fan Artwork
    This award recognizes your top choice for a piece of outstanding fan artwork posted in the Fan Art section or the forums. A list of most fan artwork posted in the forums can be found below.
  4. Best Forum Game
    This award recognizes your choice for the top topic in the Forum Games section.
  5. Best Introduction Topic
    This award recognizes your choice for the top topic in the Introductions section.
  6. Best Avatar
    This award recognizes your choice for the member who has the most impressive avatar. This can be based on their current avatar (as of the beginning of nominations) or one posted in the Past Avatar & Signatures topic.
  7. Best Signature
    This award recognizes your choice for the member who has the most interesting signature. This can be based on their current signature (as of the beginning of nominations) or one posted in the Past Avatar & Signatures topic.
  8. Best Fan Game
    This award recognizes games created or altered by Phantasy Star fans. Eligible Fan Games can be found in the Fan Games Downloads, Emulation Patches Downloads, and Fan Games Forum.
  9. Best Download
    This award recognizes the best work available in the Downloads section of the site. Fan Games and Emulation Patches are not eligible for this award, but all other downloads are eligible. Please note that even though most of the downloads were posted via my account and as such have the name Thoul on them, a great many were created by other members of the community. Please don't disregard a download just because it has my account tied to it.
  10. Most Successful Discussion
    This award recognizes your choice for the best discussion topic on the forums. Non-discussion topics or topics that fit into another award category (such as Forum Games, Fan Fiction, or Fan Artwork topics) are not eligible for this award.
  11. Most Enthusiastic Fringer
    This award recognizes a member of the community who has shown a great enthusiasm for some activity. Whether it's obsessing about a certain game, posting news stories, entertaining with random skits, or some other activity, this is something the member does often and does well. (Site Staff - that being Thoul - is not eligible for this award.)
  12. Fringer of Excellence
    This award recognizes an outstanding member who you feel best illustrates the qualities that the community values. Kindness, sharing knowledge in a productive manner, things like that. You don't have to be a Phantasy Star expert to receive this award - just a great community member. (Site Staff - that being Thoul - is not eligible for this award.)

So, that's the basics of it. Please take the time to nominate your favorites so we can have some great voting ballots. You will find a blank nomination ballot at the bottom of this message, which you can copy and paste when nominating.

You nominate by sending a private message to a special account dedicated to the Muskies Awards at psalgo.com/boards/ucp.php?i=pm&mode ... &u=463. Please do not post your nominations in this or any thread.

If you have questions or other concerns, please direct them to me by private message using the link on all my posts or profile, or by replying to this thread.

Nominations will be closed on March 13, 2010 at 8:00 pm Eastern Time.
