Is this still a thing thats gonna happen? It's been almost a month and it doesn't look like the tumblr has added any new info, and I'm not familiar with how the time frame normally works with this. Just thought I'd see if someone knows better than me.

We just had a meeting, and Smackie will be making a new updated post sometime today :)

Definitely still happening. We're just tryign to get all the details squared away before we announce anything, we don't want to realize there's gonna be a problem with something and have to go back and change what we had said previously after everyone was already prepared for that.

Updated Awards news!

Postby Smackie Awards » October 7th, 2012, 10:15 pm

COOL NEW INFORMATION

The nomination process is going to begin November 1st and will run through December 30th! During that time, SmackJeeves members will be encouraged to nominate the comics they want to win!

In the past, nominations for all categories were done in one thread. ***BUT THIS YEAR*** the Awards are getting their very own subforum! This means that each category will get its very own thread- in other words, there will be a thread to nominate sprite comics, a separate thread to nominate action comics, a separate thread for drama comics, et cetera. This will streamline the organization process for the awards team and will also hopefully encourage the community to nominate AND read more comics!

THE RULES FOR NOMINATING COMICS
Although it is TOO EARLY to begin nominating comics yet, it is never too early to get familiar with the requirements! These requirements will be listed again in every category thread once nominations begin in November.

---How long must a comic be in order to be eligible?
In order to be considered, a comic must have at least 30 pages- NOT including fillers and covers. 30 pages of juicy comic meat.

---May I nominate my own comic?
You may not nominate your own comic.

---May I nominate a comic belonging to someone in the Awards organization group?
No. It was decided that in general, the SJ community was not comfortable with organization members being eligible for awards. A list of awards team members will be included in each nomination thread along with the general eligibility rules. If one gets nominated anyway, the nomination will be ignored.

---How many comics can I nominate per category? Can I nominate my favorite comic more than once?
You may nominate up to three comics for each category, and you may only nominate each comic one time.

---What about comics that are on hiatus? Are they eligible for nomination?
This part gets a little tricky!
The purpose of the awards is to get people reading comics they may have missed out on previously. Because of this, we want to keep the awards restricted to comics that are clearly ongoing and not forgotten (or alternatively, have been definitely and deliberately completed by their creator[s]).
Because some hiatuses are deliberate and some happen because the creator has moved on to other things and forgotten their comic, these nominations will be looked at on a case-by-case basis. Some basic rules of thumb, though:
~~If the comic isn't on hiatus, it needs to have updated in the past 6 weeks before the start of the nominating period- i.e., at least since mid-September.
~~If the creator has put their comic on hiatus purposely, they will be contacted to see whether they are still around and plan to come back! For comics on definitive hiatus, they need to have been updated within the last six months (since May).
BASICALLY, we are trying to weed out comics that were last updated ages ago and whose creator is no longer in the picture (pardon the pun). We don't want to get everyone all excited over a comic that's never going to update again or reach a satisfying conclusion!

---What if someone nominates a comic that doesn't meet the above rules? :(
The Awards Team will look at each nominated comic to ensure that they all meet the provided standards.


Creators of nominated comics will be contacted to see whether they are comfortable with their comics being included in the Awards.



That's everything you need to know for now about the nomination process! More information will be forthcoming as we get closer.

As always, if you have any questions, don't be too shy to ask! And in the meantime, we're a few weeks away from the beginning of nominations, so start thinking of which great comics YOU want to nominate!

Much luv,
Smackie

Questions! because the nomination process is 2 months long does the page requirement have to be BEFORE the smackies start to be elligable? or say the comic hits 30 within the second week can it still be nominated?

Also:
I think the SJ forums could use a general "Smackjeeves Events" subforum for things like Secret santa, marchmadness/july jubilee/ comic days etc. just suggestion though.

Seconded. It'd be much easier to follow community events that way.

Very good question! I'd be curious about this as well.
