Nominations Instructions

  • Feb. 17th, 2017 at 6:30 PM
Noms are open!

Tags that do not conform to these instructions will not be approved.

Please disregard everything AO3 says on the "nominate" page. Do NOT choose the canonical versions of whatever tag you're nominating. Tags are NOT restricted to characters only. Thank you. (AO3 doesn't let mods adjust what's on the nominations page.) If you have questions, please ask!

Please check what was agreed for your fandom on the franchise wrangling post. Write the fandom's name based on what was decided there. If your fandom has not been discussed on the franchise wrangling post, use the AO3 canonical. Please avoid using "- All Media Types" tags. If you're nominating a character who's found in many canons, or a relationship with such a character, please add the fandom name in (brackets) after the name(s).

Nominating Characters
If you wish to receive a Thing centered on a character, nominate your character tag as Character: Character's Name. Some examples:
Character: Aria T'Loak
Character: Urdnot Wrex
Character: Miranda Lawson
Note: if you are nominating a RPG character whose gender one can choose (Shepard, The Jedi Exile, etc), please specify.

Nominating Relationships
If you wish to receive a Thing centered on a relationship between two or more characters, nominate your tag as Relationship: Character A/Character B if you want a romantic or sexual relationship between A and B, or as Relationship: Character A & Character B if you want a platonic or familial relationship between A and B. Alphabetize by surname. (Yes, it goes into the slot called "Characters". It's so that matching would work.) Some examples:
Relationship: Miranda Lawson & Oriana Lawson
Relationship: Urdnot Wrex/Garrus Vakarian
Relationship: Male Shepherd & Liara T'Soni

Nominating Worldbuilding
If you wish to receive a Thing centered on worldbuilding, nominate your tag as Worldbuilding: A Clear Description. Some examples:
Worldbuilding: Citadel Sewage System
Worldbuilding: Source of Cerberus' Funding
Worldbuilding: Mass Relays.

If you are unsure of what you want – say you'd like something with Ashley Williams exploring the Citadel sewage system. Would you be happier with Ashley Williams doing something completely different, or with someone else looking through the Citadel sewage system? Or, if you don't know what to nom at all, go trawl through the fandom recruitment post in search of inspiration.

If you find these instructions confusing, or otherwise wish to flail, please comment here or PM me.

Now, go forth and nom.
