2006 Readers Choice Awards

Update: November 13th 2006. Sally and I have simply gotten too busy to get around to writing the voting script for the final vote. Everyone who participated will receive their awards eventually. *sigh* In the meantime, all winning stories have been marked.

Congratulations, our apologies, and thanks to everyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We finally have enough talented authors that I think we're due for another official contest. ^_^ There's been talk about having a Reader's Choice Awards and I think it's about time we do it.

I remember being really excited when my favorite archive did this and I ended up nominated, so I want to do it again.

Basically what this is, is the reader's chance to vote for their favorite story. Winner will get a trophy placed next to their story and will get a trophy in their trophy case (whenever the heck we finish it >_<)
