Take a seat, Ladies and Gentlemen.

Welcome, Fellow Roleplayers.

We, the mods of thebestof_rp, would like to introduce you to the first annual THE BEST OF LIVEJOURNAL ROLEPLAY: 2008. What is this bullshit, you may ask? Well, we have decided that, as the end of 2008 draws near, LiveJournal needs to celebrate yet another successful year of roleplay games and roleplaying in general. We are holding some sort of awards ceremony here for many different types of categories; because it is still early on the official date of the "ceremonies," we plead that you suggest us some categories over in this entry. Winners of any category will be given a banner crafted by ~Yours Truly~ to be put on their journal or RPG community journal for bragging rights.

Are you interested yet? Yes? Excellent; why don't you have us friended for fresh updates? :) Otherwise, the following information is in regards to the timeline. Might find it useful, we don't know.

FIRST STEP: The Preparation Process - (01 October to 22 October)
This is the part where we get everything in order; you, the viewer, will be able to help us decide on categories which should be added or removed. Head over this way to help us already! At the end of this month, we will post an official list of award categories in which YOU (or the RPG) may be able to win!

SECOND STEP: The Nomination Process - (25 October to 30 November)
Every day from October 25th on to the 30th of November (depending on how many different categories we've got), we will be posting a couple categories in which you may, anonymously or not, nominate the subject for the voting process. You may nominate up to two DIFFERENT subjects at a time, and please do not submit the same subjects more than once; that would be cheating. Of course, we have no way of knowing, but if we suspect something is up, your nominations will be voided. Anyway, there will be a form to be filled; comment with the filled form in the post for that category and your cast is in! We will post a different category every day in November around 8PM EST. Can't guarantee it'll always be on time, though. Oh, and you will have 48 hours to cast your nominations FOR EACH CATEGORY.. By the end of the month, we will have the official nominees (which will be the top five picks) for each category in which you can vote for the next month.

THIRD STEP: The Voting Process - (01 December to 27 December)
The most important step of all! Like the Nomination Process, we will be posting a couple poll/vote submission form every day for each couple of categories. There you may vote for the subject you think is best fit to win the category; you will have 48 hours to cast your vote FOR EACH CATEGORY. As we've mentioned in the second step, We will post a different category every day in November around 8PM EST without any guarantees of ~perfect timing~. This will be continued on until the 27th of December, so remember to have us friended in order to keep yourself updated!

FINAL STEP: The Awards Ceremony - (01 January to ?)
This is where history is made: we will announce the winners for each category in a single entry. :) Banners will be given out and all. Depending on the demand, however, we may hand out awards in similar fashion to what we have done in the nomination and voting process. Tell us what you think in the suggestion box.

NOMINATION: Dressing Room Community of the Year, Mosf Wank in a RPG.

Dressing Room Community of the Year. (Notes) none.
This is pretty self-explanatory; pick the ‘Dressing Room’ community in which you think excels in entertainment and activity. It should provide a warm, welcoming environment to new members and an upkeep on chaos.

Please fill out the following form to nominate for the DRESSING ROOM COMMUNITY OF THE YEAR.





Most Wank within a Single RPG. (Notes) Be able to name at least three incidents.
Wank and butthurt are common occurrences within a game. Which of these many popular games, however, provide the most abundant and entertaining wank of all? Only you can decide.


Please fill out the following form to nominate for the MOST WANK WITHIN A SINGLE RPG.




INSTRUCTIONS
We will have a comment thread for each section for you to reply in; please fill out each form and comment to the corresponding thread. Thank you! Oh, and feel free to do a "wank report" if you are up to it. We anons love that kinda shit.

NOMINATION: Most Original RPG, Best [Fandom] Crew within an RPG.

The Most Original/Unique RPG. (Notes) Two subcategories: 1-150 and 150+ characters.
These games must demonstrate an abstract and a stretch on creativity. When reading the premises, does it automatically dazzle the audience? Does it include extra-curricular activities in which no other game has ever thought of? Do the moderators keep their players on their toes on each and plot they come up with? Keep these questions in mind as you make your nominations.

Please fill out the following form to nominate for the MOST ORGINAL RPG.





Best [Fandom] Crew within a RPG. (Notes) There must be at least four characters in that same fandom.
These crews must demonstrate a consistency in activity and vigorous communication. Not only should they interact within their fandom, but they also branch out to other people within the game. Here are a couple questions you should ask yourself as you nominate: are they so ridiculously in-character that you prefer them over their actual canons? Do they constantly humor you to no end? Do you look forward to their interactions and/or for them to interact with you?

promote us pt. 2 because we failed the first time.

C&P THIS ANYWHERE.

Put this in your journal, an entry, or give it to the mods of whatever RPG you're in and ~promote~ us! That ensures participation of your game, which means more competition and then would therefore result in more entertainment. Just copy and past the code below and begin spamming away! Thank you in advance. :)

[epic 50yrs in the making.]

wow, what is this fail?

Because we failed to proofread, we realized that the advertisement ad lacked a correct link to this journal. So, we have fixed that and hope you folks may continue to promote us. Why is this so important? Well, it's simple: the more participants you get from your RPG, the greater chance you'll have of winning an award! So why the hell not? There's really nothing to lose. :)

In addition to this, we will start the Nomination Process on SATURDAY NIGHT (October 25th) @ 7PM!! We had underestimated the popularity of this, so we didn't think so many ideas would be poured toward our direction, so thank you!

Remember, promote, promote, promote, promote!

We love you too,
~ Anon.

not exactly...

"OFFICIAL" CATEGORIES.

These, by the way, are not in any particular order; it's just so you have a feel of how much of these you will be seeing. Once it passes over the 30 mark, we'll be grouping sets of nominations each night in November so that it'll still be evenly distributed throughout the month.
Collapse )

You may still cast in your suggestions over here. Until the 31st, we may add and remove some of these categories, so this is actually not that offical.

Hold your horses.

THE INQUIRY/SUGGESTION/FLAME BOX.


Hate us? Please let it out here. Think we're geniuses? Feel free to also express it here. Are you absolutely confused and have no idea where to start? Well, start with satisfying your curiosity over here. The only thing we will not answer is who we really are. :)
[default.]

Let's do some brainstorming.

CATEGORY SUGGESTIONS.


Here is where you may suggest nomination categories, either anonymously or while logged in. Examples include:

Best "Crack" RPG.
Best In-Game Couple.
RPG of the Year (More than 150 Characters.)
RPG of the Year (Less than 150 Characters.)
Largest Panfandom RPG.
RP Wankfest of the Year.

So on and so forth. Categories can range anywhere from "Best," "Worst," "Crackiest," "Most Fun/Active/Etc." You may post in regards to a game's theme, a whole roleplaying community, a fandom playerbase, a specific player, and everything in between as long as it applies to roleplaying in some way. Please include only ONE category per comment. The moderators will read through the suggested topics and hand-choose which categories will be included in the nomination process. You may reply to a suggestion with your "IAWTC" or whatever you please if you also want the category to be chosen. Chances are, the more popular and in-demand a suggestion is, the more likely we are to pick it.

Remember, however, that NO ACTUAL VOTING WILL BE DONE IN THIS POST. For the sake of cleanliness and organization, please try to keep unnecessary conversation and commentspam to a minimum. Also, while you can suggest "negative" categories, we will not hesitate to freeze threads if/when things begin to get out of hand.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!


We will now prepare for the nomination process.
