The categories and how to nominate
 Group admin 
Welcome to the nomination phase of the 2012 MOCie Awards. This phase
is very simple and here’s how it works.

I have provided a separate thread for each category. In that thread
you will add your nominations (up to 3 for each category) and provide
a LINK to the nomination (so that others can see what it is).

Please note, if you do not provide a link we will NOT be tracking down links
for you or try to find what you’re talking about.

Any chatter in the nomination threads WILL be deleted. ONLY post your nominations for each category please. (Feel free to chit chat about
the categories and nominations in THIS thread)

Remember, this is NOT the voting phase. That will begin on or about July 1st.

This phase will be open until the end of June. ANY moc posted between the end of June last year and the end of June this year is eligible to be nominated.

If a moccer won an award last year for an individual category then they CAN NOT be nominated for it again this year.

YOU CAN NOT NOMINATE YOURSELF FOR ANYTHING.

The categories are:
AFOL/TFOL and YFOL of the year (3 seperate categories)
MOC of the Year
Most improved moccer
Best Microscale
Best Realistic Vehicle (cars, planes, trains, boats and so on)
Best Bionicle
Best space/sci-fi (including star wars, halo and whatever else)
Best Castle/Fantasy
Best Town
Best on going theme/series
Best Misc.


Now get to those nominations!


EDIT: (and VERY important!)
Just because a creation has already been nominated DO NOT JUST LEAVE IT AT THAT! Nominations will be added up and the creations with THE MOST nominations will make the final list.

SO... if you want something in the final list, MAKE SURE you nominate it! Regardless of what others have posted!

Phipson, we can start adding creations now right?


No.

ONLY the final nominees will be allowed to add their creations, and ONLY the creations that were nominated.

Warning, autoplaying music.


Remember, the creations MUST have been posted in the last year. This one, while fraking awesome, is too old.

Most Improved Moccer category question.

Is it most improved since joining, or most improved in the past year?

Like all the other categories, this one refers to the past year (end of June 2011 - end of June 2012).

If I nominate one person in something and then want to nominate two additional people should I edit them into my first comment or leave another comment?

They had been mentioned, but since the request for 'Best Bionicle' and 'Most improved MOCcer' was higher this year, we went with those ones.

One more reason to not like Bionicle. ;)

Come on, there's bionicle but not pirates?!?!?! I guess I can still nominate pirates in the misc. category... But it would be better if you just nominate bionicle in misc and pirate was an actual category...

The topic title "Castle/Fantasy" is a bit confusing, "Castle/Fantasy/Pirate" would have been better, if it has to be in the same category anyway.
Either way, I sacrificed my castle nominations for some good nice pirate stuff ;)

They said you could fit Pirates into the Castle/Fantasy category.

Anyway, hate to break it to ya, but Bionicle is still more popular then Pirates.

Right, this year, 'pirates' belong to the 'castle/fantasy' category and although it's not mentioned in the title (like LotR and other subcategories), it's still part of it. Since there are some pretty impressive pirate creations out there, the chance of winning in that category is still extremely high.

Thanks for clearing that up. I just assumed that pirates didn't belong in that category because it doesn't really fit under castle or fantasy.

MOTY - Mike Doyle

This would remove the option for Mr. Doyle to win again this year, correct? (This might actually give the rest of us a chance! :P)

Just a reminder, there's only a few days left to nominate creations!

I've been looking over the lists and it looks like there's a LOT of nominations with only a single vote. Remember, if you agree with a nomination, be sure to "second" it so it'll be on the final ballot. If we end up with a lot of "one nominations" then Xeno and I will have to choose out of them ourselves.

Keep those nominations coming!
