Post Mortem: Limit nominations per author
- Another dictatorial decision: No.
Look at it this way, if all their stories were nominated this year, they
won't have anything to be nominated next year.
Another way to look at it: I nominted some Altariel stories. Someone else
nominated some Altariel stories. Someone else nominated some Altariel
stories. Not all multiple nominates came from the same person. If an
author nominated all her own stories, there's no guarantee they will be
read, or that they will be good enough to get votes. (They certainly may,
but it's not guaranteed. Remember, I nominated all my own stories, so don't
think I'm trying to make self-nominators feel bad. that's just realism. If
someone else nominates a story, it is more likely to get at least one
comment...by the nominator.)
Another way: Since we are based on ASC..Remember that there any story posted
during the year is automatically nominated. So if one author writes 26
drabbles (one for each ENT episode, for example), all 26 are nominated. Or
the author may choose to put them into one series and have all 26 run as one
nomination. But that is up to the author.
yet another way: One thing that really irks me about another awards program
out there is the limit of 1 story per catgory limit.
But sorry, this one is a No. There will be no limit on nominations.
