    Default Shipper of the Month - Nominations for April are open!

    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.



    R u l e s
    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.





    C r i t e r i a

    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 ^_~








    All right! I think we've got everything. Now, let's get this show on the road! Nominations for the month of April is now CLOSED!

        Spoiler:- April Nominees:



    Get nominating, everybody!



    F a r e w e l l

    Well guys, we're shutting this down due to lack of interest. Congrats to the winners we've had in February and March~

    Uh... guys. There are only 4 people who gave nominations, and nomination time is running out. >_>; Just fyi.

    I really don't want this to turn out [dead] like last time. If you guys aren't interested in monthly awards, then fine - just say so before-hand so Tadashi doesn't do this for nothing. :\

    Also, most of the nominees only seem to be active in the ToD thread, js. Unless I'm missing something.

    I'd nominate, but Shadow-saur nominated everyone I wanted to already, lol. Good luck to everyone!

    My reply and nominations got deleted...I'm disgusted :x
    So I'll just say that I rather believe in an annual event for Shippers than a monthly one, mainly because it is hard to find really good stuff over a specific (short) period of time.
    And it's hard to remember everything for that precise month.

    Whereas for an annual event, you remember what and who really struck you as good/brilliant.

    Since we're lacking nominations, I'll contribute this time.

    Best Mainstream Pairing Shipper of the Month
    Idk. Haven't visited all the threads concerned.

    Best Obscure Pairing Shipper of the Month
    Likewise.

    Best Topic of the Month
    One that actually made me think.
    "During the first film, where Ash is revived, say hypothetically that Misty confessed to Ash afterwards and then Ash says he feels the same way. Then Mewtwo does his thing where he wipes away everyone's memories of the events in the film. How would you have reacted, and what effect would this have on Pok&#233;Shipping?"
    It doesn't get. Any bigger.

    I think I just now realized that all the shippers I talk to frequently go crazy for the off-the-handle WTH ships. I'm going with Swifty, though. I haven't seen him post anywhere else besides the Pokeshipping thread.

    Ann Chovie Awesome name by the way. Yeah, she's only posted a few times, but she does make her posts clear and concise. That, and I can't think of anyone else, and I want to see an awesome newbie round.

    Thank you for your votes, everyone!

    I will update the first post with the results, as well as display them here. Congrats to all our awesome winners!

    Unfortunately, I did have to cancel out a few votes since a couple of people forgot the NO VOTING FOR YOURSELF rule...

    I'd like to thank the SPPf members who stepped in at the last moment to give me tiebreaker votes! I appreciate it! <3


        Spoiler:- Drumroll, please!:




    Okay! Now that that's all said and done with, it's time to discuss the March nominations.

    You may not nominate any of February's winners for any category, do you hear me?

    Otherwise, I am not going to count your nominations. Topics, threads, activity, all of that changes! And the same people can't keep winning all the time, because that's boring =\ February winners are eligible for nomination again in April.



    With that in mind, the March nominations are now open so guys, nominate away!

    Wow, we really lost momentum, guys.

    No more nominations for March are accepted as of now. The first post has been updated with the nominations, and the vote link.

    Voting for March commences as of March 25, and closes on March 31, 11:59 pm Mountain Time (GMT -7)

    [Link Closed]

    There are only 5 categories that will be accepting votes, due to a lack of nominations in the others. We've got 7 default winners, and one category with absolutely no nominations. Let's try harder in April, okay?

    If you want your nominations to count, please remember to vote for them~ ^^

    All comments will be screened. Voting results will appear as of April 1, 2009, and nominations for April will commence as well ^^

    Thanks to all 3 people who voted this March. Congrats to all our winners, both default and voted!

    Just as last time,

    You may not nominate any of March's winners for any category in April.

    Otherwise, I am not going to count your nominations. March winners are eligible for nomination again in May. Also, the winners from February are now available to be nominated.


    Without further ado, nominations for April are open!

    K, so, I'm wondering, does anyone even care about SotM? Tadashi puts a lot of effort into this thread and no one seems to care enough to nominate or vote, thus making this competition...not really a competition at all.

    I mean, if you guys don't care, please say so. It's not right having Tadashi set this up and then having no one nominate or even vote... there's too many default winners. If SotM does not get more attention soon, Kiori and I will close this.
    Currently a little busy. I'll respond to all messages when I can.

    Well guys, it's been real, but Chelc and Kiori have a point =\ No one seems to care anyway, since we didn't even really start off well to start with. It's sad to see this thread go the way of the dinosaurs and acid-washed jeans, not to mention the previous versions of this thread, but I guess that SPPf just is not - and never will be - ready for a Shipper of the Month Thread.

    ^I think it will be at some point in the future, but maybe not now. ^^; Maybe coz the pace is too fast for something that grows in a moderate speed? (not implying that it's bad or anything). =P

    Sorry guys. It's been fun while it lasted. ^^
