Greetings everyone and welcome to the 2011 MOCie awards!

Most of you already know how this works but for those that are new(er) to MOCpages, 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 and new guy awards. The winners of each category will be chosen by YOU the MOCpages public.

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.



Here is the list of categories for the 2010 MOCie Awards!

READ THIS BEFORE YOU NOMINATE ANYONE!
I will be setting up individual threads for EACH category. Your job is to find 2 to 4 nominees for each category and post them in ONE comment in the appropriate category thread.

If this doesn’t make sense, then just wait a few minutes until you see how other people are doing it. If it STILL doesn’t make sense, then you can ask in the question thread.

The final date for nominations will be June 30th. If you MUST make changes (please don’t) to your nominations, do NOT do a separate comment. EDIT YOUR ORIGINAL COMMENT PLEASE.

There will be NO SPAM ALLOWED in the official threads. If you’d like to talk about a nomination, please reply to it in the “spam” thread (that I will be making here in a few minutes). Anything that is not a nomination in a nomination thread will be deleted.

If you have questions about the categories themselves, you can ask them here.
Now then, on with the show!


Best Space/Sci-Fi (Including star wars, HALO, Atlantis, black fantasy, Steampunk and so on.)

Best Castle (Including Pirates, Fantasy and so on.)

Best Town/City (Including "real" vehicles, trains and anything else that goes with "towns.")

Best Microscale (For the sake of argument, yes this includes Nanoscale)

Best Macroscale

Best Miscellaneous (Anything that doesn't "fit" in the other categories)

Funniest MOC

Best Story

Best New Guy/Girl

MOCcer of the year - AFOL/TFOL/YFOL

If you won an award last year you are NOT eligable to win in that category again this year.

To see last year's winners (who are not eligable to win in their winning category from that year) go here:

-----

The final date for nominations will be June 28th.



Discrepancy? I can have an eligable MOC posted on 30th June, but it can't be nominated after the 28th?

Who me, nitpicky?

Oh, and while we're in questions mode, where was my invite for the pre-show? Does the new economy MOCies not include my business class ticket from the UK? Surely you should have contacted my agent about the half-time show by now? I mean my calender is filling up, and after last year I figured i'm funnier than Ricky Gervais and dirt cheap too. Surely it's just an ommision right? Chris? Hello?.....

Anybody?

Sorry, typo on my part. It's fixed.

After the whole "goat with a cherry pie" incident from last year the commision was a little worried for the safety of said goats. I've almost got it cleared through the ASPCA so we should be able to get you back to work soon. (Read as: There should be an email on the way soon! Thanks!)

Just a little clarification about nominations.

Just because someone has already nominated something/someone in one of the threads does not mean that you can't (or shouldn't) nominate them again. As a matter of fact, that's basically how it works! The more nominations someone/thing gets the better. We will be counting the nominations and the top 5 or so posts with the most nominations will be on the final ballot.

If a person/post only has one or two nominations they most likely WON'T be on the final ballot for voting!

Just for everyone's information:

The nomination phase will be ending at midnight (MOCpages time) tonight. That means you only have 13 hours (by my clock) to make sure your favs are nominated.

We'll have the voting ballot up (HOPEFULLY) by tomorrow evening sometime. If not then by Saturday. Once the ballot is posted I'll include an email address for you to send your votes to (one email per user please).

Good luck to everyone!

Actually, I won it last year. You can "nominate" me all you want but I won't be on the final ballot. Anyone who won a MOCie in any particular category the previous year cannot win in that category the following year.

But I'm flattered and thank you very much for thinking of me.

Absolutly you can. Who do you think Obama voted for in the last election? Voting will be private and only the three admins will know who voted for what so feel free!

Oh, so if I'm one of the 5-6 people nominated for the "Best New Guy/Girl" category I can vote for myself? Cool.

So, it's July 2nd...when are you going to get the email list thing?

Yeah, but that's different. You have a choice of turning it off, compared to this one, which you don't. Its all Phipson.

I'm so glad you answered my question. I'd never been to your site before. Took a quick glance. Looks like you have some fun stuff! I'll have to visit again and look around when I have more time to do so. Thanx :)

I'll be doing a post with the winners as soon as I can (hopefully this week but work's been a real bear).

After the post I'll most likely put a list of the winners here somewhere as well.
