BEST of P2TM 2017 AWARDS [Nomination Period]

Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader -
not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.

Hello and welcome to the Best of P2TM 2017 Awards, a tradition started by Sentinel XV in 2013. It is our great pleasure to continue this tradition. May it inspire you as readers, writers, conworlders and gamers.

It's been several years since the founding of P2TM, when Our Lords and Saviors (a.k.a., Admin and the Mods) took us from the deserts of F7 and brought us here, to the Promised Land. Since that time, around early June of 2012, we have grown into a sizable, thriving RP community. Through hard work, best practices, and general stubborness, we earned the privledge of breaking from "General" to be clustered in our own category (named by Cerillium): The Fifth Dimension. Forum 7 remained part of us, for we will not leave our beloved history behind. Couldn't have done any of this without you! Take a bow!

These accomplishments are more than respectable. They are amazing. They are awesome. And it requires an awards ceremony, something to memorialize the greatest threads and the greatest moments of 2017, and to serve as a reminder as we go on through the years as to how phenomenal our talented roleplayers are.

What this is not is a popularity contest. We've seen them used in this manner. Talent and popularity are not the same thing. You are welcome to run your own popularity contest to feature categories such as "cutest P2TMer" or "favorite roleplayer". The "Best Of P2TM" recognizes talent, dedication, excellence, and creativity in the hope of inspiring the next generation of denizens to strive on in style.

All entries must use the nomination form. You don't have to answer every category however. You may not nominate yourself for individual awards, though you may nominate your roleplay as OP/GM.

Cheating and Puppet Wanking will not be tolerated.

Please do not clutter this thread with off topic, casual conversations. If people want to discuss a nomination's merits or flaws, sure, people can weigh in. That includes the person nominated. Be respectful. "Vote for Me/This Person" promotion doesn't belong here. Take it to your OOC or Group threads.


Image
The NOMINATION DEADLINE is 12 JANUARY, 2018, 1800 UTC (6 PM UTC; convert to your local time here). Any nominations after that deadline will not be accepted.

Nominations must be for things done in P2TM in 2017.

You may not self-nominate nor use puppets to nominate yourself or vote. Puppet wankers will be disqualified (their entire nomination form will be as well).

A note on "NOMINATE ME!" incessant solicitation: This will be taboo again this year. If your stuff is good, peeps will nominate you for it. Don't beg for nominations/votes in the Awards thread or Awards Discussion thread, please.

The official nomination forms are below. We will link them shortly.


Image
The Best of P2TM 2017 awards are broken down into two groups.

    Recognition of Excellence
    A person or game can only be nominated once until the 12 JANUARY, 2018, 1800 UTC deadline (meaning future nominations from other players won't "add up"). The judges will then be asked to pick the top three based upon the reasons given by the nominator. All nominations receive equal recognition - only one person or game is awarded that category. Of course, self-nominations are still not allowed. Players that publicly pester/beg judges to vote for them, or acts of puppet voting, may disqualify the nomination. Please review the nomination criteria.

    Once the judges have chosen the top three, the community will be asked to vote.

    Year after year, the same people seem to sweep these awards. What we ask is that those who have won more than once kindly bow out. We know you're awesome already. We'd like to give others a chance to shine.

    The Writing Portion
    The Writing Portion showcases the writer and their work. Each nomination is judged via a panel. Points are awarded and tallied. Everything is kept transparent. For an example of a judge score sheet, please see http://madhouseproductions.boards.net/thread/126/blank-scoring-form

    NOMINATION DEADLINE is 12 JANUARY, 2018, 1800 UTC. Nominations are tracked via Google Excel, and copied to the forum. Only contest organizers know who the writer/s are. This helps prevent judges from making biased decisions.

    There are three main categories:
    Scene - this is a series of IC posts written by more than one writer or by one writer.
    Single Post - this is one IC post written by one writer.
    Collaborated Post - this is one post written by two or more writers but published as a single IC post.

    Posts must be part of the RP's IC thread.

Judging will take place 13-20 January 2018. Judges can not judge their own work, nor can they preside over a subcategory that contains their nomination. Please do not harass Judges to vote for you.

The 2018 Judges and backup judges are:

Backup Judges, we frequently have judges drop out due to sudden real life circumstances. Please be prepared to serve as a judge even though you've been listed as a backup.



Image
This year's off-site judging portion of the awards is hosted by Madhouse Productions (formerly Paedagog, the host of the 2015 and 2016 P2TM Awards). All scoring for the writing portion can be viewed by the general public. Questions or concerns should be addressed to the host's site admin, Vorpal Fennec.

I've added you both to the judges list.

Yes, non-Mentors can be judges. We'd like a variety of people from various groups/cliques to help with judging. It allows us to be more impartial. As always, written entries are posted without the author or RP name in order to judge solely based upon the quality of their writing.

Do "newcomers" and not-so-well-knowns have a chance to win an award? You bet! Please don't hesitate to nominate people you know. This thing isn't just for long-running RP or large groups. There's so much talent to be found in our forum... let's showcase as much as we can. As a Mentor, I'm proud of each and every P2TM denizen, regardless of how long they've been here or how masterfully they craft their posts. All of you are what make the Fifth Dimension a good place to spend time.

Except that old Overgoat. I'm starting to suspect that he snags my Rolos when I'm offline. :p

Judging will take place 13-20 January 2018. We will need people available at that time. Official Judges will need to temporarily sign up to the host forum in order to view the Judges' Green Room and score entries. They are not required to join the organization hosting the contest data. Judges can not judge their own work, nor can they preside over a subcategory that contains their nomination.

PLEASE DO NOT SPOILER NOMINATION FORMS OR REMOVE BLANK FIELDS.

RECOGNITION OF EXCELLENCE NOMINATIONS
Tell us why you're nominating the person or game, and why the judges should select the person or game to go up for vote. Sell it, baby! Don't forget to link to posts.

Roleplayers
Include links to person's work, if necessary, and reasons why you think they deserve an award.
Best Worldbuilder:
Best All-Around Player:
Best OP/GMs: The Cyberiad Council - Current RP, The Scar in the Sky OOC - Always on top of things. Doesn't forget to post, and will get back to you almost immediately. Also gives thorough description of RP and setting.
Best CoOP:
Most Involved in P2TM: Zjaum - I have seen them in many RPs that I've looked at, and they are probably the most consistent nation I've seen in P2TM.


Roleplay Games
IC and OOC Links Required!
BY GENRE
Action:
Comedy: The Infinites: AND BEYOND! OOC IC - Makes me laugh almost every post, and has a sturdy plot line and always seems to be accepting.
Crime:
Fantasy: The Scar in the Sky OOC IC - Starting out, but has lots of attention and potential. Seems the most promising fantasy RP I've seen for some time.
Horror/Thriller:
Life-Based/Slice of Life:
Mystery: You Againt the World (Dead, but still) (Could also go for action) OOC IC - Had over twenty five pages, so interest wasn't the problem, had exhilarating moments and kept everyone on their toes. PCs had to problem solve and fight for answers, and those answers were sometimes shocking.
P2TM Nation RP:
Romance:
School-based:
Science Fiction: Star Wars: Rebellion Rising OOC IC - Although I quit (too many pages for me to read through), it had good potential and activity. Also a popular topic and worldbuilding.
War:
Misc Genre:

OVERALL
Best Lore: (Links Required!)
Best RP Series: The Infinites Current OOC - Again, great comedy and I think always accepting. Consistent and doesn't fear inactivity. Very fun and great plot line.
Most Creative or Original RP Idea: (Links Required!)
Best OOC Thread (Link Required)


THE WRITING PORTION


These are judged categories. All nominations must have a link to the IC thread/s, and your opinion on why it should win. You may not nominate your own work.

CATEGORY: Scene

SUBCATEGORY: Best Horror

SUBCATEGORY: Best Romantic


CATEGORY: Single Post
SUBCATEGORY: Best Action or "Fight or Flight"

Hmm...I think I found a bug. Players can't be judges if they can't access the forum where judging is held, but I can enter the forum just fine. Perhaps it's an issue with some player's connections?

Hi everyone.

First, thanks for getting this up and going again. I will be submitting a nomination form in the near future.

Second, I'm surprised that there was no category mentioned for Best Historical RP. If there was one that was worthy, should we put this in miscellaneous category?

Third, Can an OP nominate his RP? Thanks.

Judging will take place 13-20 January 2018. We will need people available at that time. Official Judges will need to temporarily sign up to the host forum in order to view the Judges' Green Room and score entries. They are not required to join the organization hosting the contest data. Judges can not judge their own work, nor can they preside over a subcategory that contains their nomination.

If volunteers do not need to join the organization, or be associated in any way, then what if they are barred from entry due to a stance by said organization, or rivalry between certain staff and a player?

I'd find it rather unsettling if an event advertised as being a P2TM community event sees volunteers barred due to a specific group's not wanting them to judge. Wouldn't it be more fair/impartial to see said hosting on another forum, or to ask for greater mod oversight in this?

Torsiedelle,

Your judge application denial is not based on "rivalry" between staff and yourself. It is because you are DOS on the forum hosting the "writing contest" portion; you would be unable to participate as a judge for this reason. Your DOS is due to egregious and unprofessional behaviors which brought about your permanent ban from Madhouse Productions and its offerings. These bans were reinforced by Moderation. Your removal is public record.

You are not barred from viewing the hosted contest portion (it is public) nor are you barred from being nominated for an award. Should your writing be nominated, it would be presented to the judging panel "blind", meaning the author's name is not identified - this grants impartiality and curtails favoritism, leaving the work to be judged on merit. You are more than welcome to submit nominations for the contest as well. You are certainly allowed to post in this thread; I do ask that you keep it on topic and not allow it to devolve into drama.

Madhouse Productions is an organization that exists to support and nurture creativity on NationStates. To that end, we have sponsored panels to ease tensions between Gameplayers and Roleplayers, we offer workshops and clinics, we assist regions with roleplay game setup on their own off-site forums, and we work with the N&I Mentor team to help P2TM denizens get a foothold in nation-based roleplay. We hosted the last two "Best of P2TM Awards" under our former name, Paedagog. We are known for our impartiality and fairness, and for our professional approach. We keep Reploid Productions and Kyrusia in the loop regarding site-based events, and seek their advice in order to operate under Moderation's good graces.

Whatever you say, Swith. I buy it.

This still doesn't exactly address the issue. If this ruling makes it so that player like myself, GT, Bran, or other players you know could not volunteer, then it's still not exactly fair because a P2TM community event is hosted by a single group who can decide who and who can't be judges.

What if a group like The Pub, or The Anime Group (not calling you lads out, y'all are cool) hosted an event and made it so that a certain player couldn't be a judge or host a panel due to them being unwelcome on that group's site or forum?
