Where the best get recognition
Owned by: Tadashi
Yes, everybody, it is finally here! <3
I would've had this up in January, but the amount of site traffic from the holiday season was ridiculous.So, here it is! A month late but there's no shortage here! ^^;
W h y ?
This thread came about after we did some voting in November. People wanted this kind of thread, and Chelc gave me permission to run it. So far, I don't need a helper, but I might in the future so keep your eyes open!
Shipper of the Month is basically to show that you are as good a shipper as ever there was. Granted, there are loads of sub-categories, so there's always a chance you'll win something, but as they say in Highlander, "there can be only one
overall winner each month."
Plus, this is good news for this community. Instead of pozzing and negging each other, or spamming threads or sending flames via PM or VM, we can just vote here. If you think you should win a particular category, this is the chance to step up and show us you've got the skills to do so. And for those who are well-recognized, or maybe under-appreciated, this is your chance for recognition.

Follow them, or lose your index finger~ <3
+ Follow SPPf's rules, and the Shipping Fics Comm rules
+ No bashing/flaming/hatin' on people who don't vote for you, or if you don't win anything. There's always next month~
+ No double/triple/quadruple/whatever +1 posting. Server lags and errors are common, but if you do happen to make an extra post, please delete it, okay?
+ Don't keep voting for the same people for every category every month. Variety is the spice of life! I mean, really, if you're voting for someone for most active user, and that person hasn't been online for 6 weeks, what's the point of voting?
+ Don't vote for yourself. I know that sucks, but we're here to point out the accomplishments of others, not to pimp yo' self. Look around you, see who's doing a good job, and if they deserve to be nominated ^_^
+ USE. THE. FORM. WHEN. VOTING. I cannot stress that enough, otherwise I will have a big mess on my hands and your votes won't be counted. Simple as that.

I bet you're all just dying to know what exactly we're voting on. I'm gettin there, I just need to clear the boring legal stuff XP
Like I said, we've got categories galore, so there's lots to choose from! And the more votes we get, the funner it is for everyone ^^
And here they are!

HINT: When you're looking for best topics and good contributors, look at the post quality. Is the topic insightful? Does it create good, thoughtful discussion, instead of one-lining spam? Is the most active shipper a good shipper, or a spamming troll? And when you look for shipping fics, the number of reviews doesn't necessarily mean that the fic is of better quality ^_~
