Greetings everyone and welcome to the 2012 MOCie awards!
Here's a quick breakdown of how the event unfolds.
EVERYONE who is a member of MOCpages has technically already been entered into the awards show. EVERY moc that has been posted on MOCpages is eligible to win and EVERY builder is also eligible for the “Moccer of the year” and new guy awards. The winners of each category will be chosen by YOU the MOCpages public.
First, we will have a discussion about the categories. I will open a “nominate categories” thread where you can submit your ideas for categories. I would like to keep the number of categories down to about 12 at the most and there will be some “time honored” categories that will be here no matter what. Things like Moccer of the year, Moc of the year, best story and so on but, I’d like to know what the most wanted categories are by you, the MOCpages public. So step one in this process is to get the categories voted on which can be done in the “Nominate Categories” thread.
Once the categories have been determined…
You will be asked to nominate people and builds for each category. YOU CAN NOT NOMINATE YOURSELF. I will be opening a thread for each cateogory for you to nominate 2 to 4 mocs/people in each.
Once the nominees list is established, I will narrow down the list to the top 5 or 6 nominees in each category. At that point I will be asking you to submit your votes to me via email at an email address that I will disclose when the time is right.
From there, we will tally up the votes and I will present the awards show sometime in late July.
Any moc (or person for the Newbie category) posted between May 1st of last year and June 30th of this year is eligable to win! Voting will take place starting Friday, July first and be open for two weeks, ending Friday, July 15th at midnight MOCpages time. After that, the votes will be tallied up and the winners announced.
There will be NO SPAM/RANDOM CONVERSATION ALLOWED in the official threads. If you’d like to talk about a nomination, please reply to it in the general conversation thread. Anything that is not a nomination in a nomination thread will be deleted. Permalink
For anyone nominating LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist for moccer of the year or most improved moccer, please DO NOT add a link to his homepage. His homepage triggers moderation and we have to approve every comment that includes his homepage.
But please, DO continue to nominate him if you wish, just don't add a link to his homepage (his individual mocs still require links).
