Alright, it's nominating time again. There are a couple changes since last year.
-Anything posted from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014 is eligible.
-Nominations will last from today - January 1, 2015 - to February 13, 2015. If necessary due to low nomination totals, an extension to February 26, 2015 will be given.
UPDATE 2/13: The extension is in effect. The new date is February 26, 2015.
UPDATE 2/26: One final extension, to March 5, 2015.
-Each nomination form must nominate at least four different authors/fics. No nomination form may nominate the same story more than five times total, or the same author more than six times total.
-As a clarification, the awards are for material posted in 2014, not older moments in fics that were updated in 2014.
-Do not ask people to nominate/vote for you, as it is cheating and can result in disqualification. And no, you cannot nominate yourself either.
Dragonfree has created a new site that can be used for nominations.

By registering at the site and verifying your Serebii account as per the instructions, you will be able to more easily submit and keep track of your nominations. The site will assist you in adhereing to the various nomination limits, and when the voting phase comes, it can also be used for that.
If you so wish, you may continue to post your nominations here as in past years. Dragonfree will handle entering such nominations and checking them for compliance with the rules.
In other words, the site is here to help make everything much more efficient and easy. Use of it is not required, but it will help make everything about nominating, keeping track of existing nominations and voting all smoother.
