Trying to Wrap Up Loose Ends

Posted by thefannishwaldo on 2007.11.18 at 10:27
Hey everyone.

Let me start with profuse apologies for not doing this sooner.  There was a reason we did the awards when we did - and a lot of it had to do with me being out of school for the summer and having more time.  Unfortunately, things fell out the way they did and this is the first chance I've really had to sit and address this properly.

I don't know where sgatlantislight has gone.  I've heard something about her having to replace her computer, but that was a someone told someone told someone she said thing, so ...  I had thought at one point when she was online long enough to post pointers to a story she wrote that she'd say something then, but she hasn't and she hasn't contacted me to ask me to step up for her.  But as many of you have emailed me to say, this has gone on long enough.

What I will do by the end of today is this:

  • I will post the list of winners for the f/f and threesome divisions.
  • I will make a generic winner's banner for each of those division.  I apologize for not having time to make individual awards like I did for the m/m division.
  • I will hand over moderatorship of this community to anyone who'd like to take charge of it for next year.
Once again, I apologize for letting this go so long.

Waldo.

Didn't she leave LJ? I think she's http://thetimebeing.greatestjournal.com/, and she has been posting there through the beginning of the month.

I honestly don't know what happened to her. I know she couldn't post her story on LJ because there were elements of underage sex and LJ was having it's stroke over fanfic they didn't like about that time. I don't know if she *left* at that point or just took her fic elsewhere.

She never said anything to me one way or another.

Either way, the winners have now been announced. :)

Yay, thank you for announcing the F/F and 3some and moresomes categories. I did notice that the section at the bottom labeled 'MULTIPLE PAIRINGS WITHIN A CATEGORY'hasn't been announced (like ::cough:: Zelenka/Other ::cough::), but I think you have the rest of them covered.

So just to be clear, you're not going to be announcing the winners of the M/M "Multiple Pairings Within a Single Category" division that were mentioned in the master list here? Just want to make sure it's not up already - I've looked, but I may be losing my mind.

Damn, sorry.... I was trying to do this quickly, and didn't see that.

Will do.

Thank you for finally announcing the winners. Good luck with finding new mods.

If I can make a suggestion, I happened to follow a link over from mmmchelle's journal, and found out that I'd won an award months ago. I never received an email or comment or any kind of notification, and as far as I could tell, there was no announcement anywhere aside from this community, saying that awards had been given.

There are probably a bunch of other people out there who missed out on hearing about their awards as well. Now that you've finished them all up, it might be nice to post on the noticeboard and let everybody know.

How frustrating the whole thing must have been for you! Ah, well, no worries.

Words can't express how much I appreciate you starting this and seeing it through. I discovered a *staggering* amount of fantastic fic that had kind of slipped under the fannish radar, and honestly being able to come here and find so much great stuff really helped transform my sense of what this fandom is - for the better, I mean! Thank you so much, and get some rest! *g*

Thanks for wrapping this up. It was obviously out of your control, with SGAtlantislight disappearing without a trace, so I think you've done a great job getting all the winners posted. I wasn't one of them, unfortunately, but at least I know now and most of the fics I voted for won their categories, so that's nice :).

Hopefully things will go off with fewer problems next year.

Laura.
