    Darn, no wins. Can't say I didn't see that coming, though.
    Congratulations to all the winners, the ones I recognize definitely deserve it.

    I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me and my work, and I'd also like to congratulate everyone else who won. Especially bobandbill. The Retelling of Pokémon Colosseum really deserved Best Comedy Fic.

    I HAVE CLAIMED WEEZING. YOU ARE NOT WORTHY.

    Thank you to everyone who voted for me! =) I even tied for first on one! Hopefully I can be much more active this year than I was the back half of '11 (even though I'm already off to a terrible start) so that I won't be so surprised people actually remembered me when voting. ^^;

    Again, thank you to all of the people who voted for me and congratulations to not only (but especially) the winners, but to everyone who was nominated.

    I have to say, I'm very impressed with the turnout this year and how smoothly everything went. Congratulations to everyone!

    For the sake of information so the 2012 awards can be even better, do any of you have any kind of feedback to give? I'd like to always be bettering my plans for the future awards.

    Eh, did terribly on that. Ah well, I totally expected it. It's not like I'm a really experienced writer or something. At least one person voted for The Power N.U. and I got nominated. :>

    Didn't do to well on that either, but once again I wasn't expecting it. I thought my plot for The Power N.U. was okay, but then again, I had tough competition.

    Once again, I'm not disappointed at all. I'm inexperienced and I was expecting this.

    Third place, eh? Not bad, not bad at all. I knew my idea to put Smogon into my fic was a pretty creative one.

    ...Wait. A. Second.
    My first year of writing, and I actually win an award?


    Really, thank you, thank you all who voted for Broken Promise. I never thought it was anything good or special, but apparently it is. I suppose the story of a forgotten character is quite interesting to people. What this means is, I'm sorry about the crazily long hiatus I've taken from fan fiction. Now that I know that Broken Promise won an award, my interest in fan fiction has been rekindled, and I will continue to write.

    <><><>

    Congratulations, massive congratulations to all those who won, and sorry to all those who lost. Although I honestly don't have the time to follow more than two or three fics, I know that all the winners of these awards did fabulously. The fics who won definitely deserve my reading them, but I wish I weren't so busy doing nothing... ah well, congratulations anyways.

    A big congratulations to Missingno. Master, whom I nominated and voted for many times, for winning so many well-deserved awards. I honestly hope I can be like you someday... but all that takes is a little more writing and determination on my part.

    As for next year's awards... aside from not to keep us waiting for so long (joke, joke!), there's really nothing I can say that will make the awards better. Best of luck to all, and see you next year!

    I don't think I'll ever get over the fact that AEM won Best Horror, despite the fact that it's apparently accidental horror. Clearly, this means I should just write horror fic from now on. Or that I fail at not writing horror.

    Awesome job, guys! Thanks to everyone who voted for me, and congrats to everyone! The way I see it, it's an honor being nominated at all, so I'm just happy either way.

    As for suggestions, honestly not sure. I think this is the smoothest the awards have run, as far as I can remember, save for the bumps you straightened out in the nomination phase. (You know. Like the one where we can't just fill up our nomination ballots with one person or fanfic.) I wonder, though, is it possible to cut the amount of time the nominations/voting period lasted. I mean, there was a huge chunk of time in which no one touched the nominations thread, right? Would it be more convenient to cut nominations and voting down by about a week or so (so we can finish off the whole shebang before April), or would that rush people too much?

    Also, Arti... you know that you can skim potential nominations/votes, right? I mean, part of the point and beauty of the awards is to delve into works you might not have had time for before the nominations/voting period. (Sure, it's okay to vote for favorites, but you'd still want to keep an open mind and consider material you haven't read, you know?) And it's not really too time-consuming to read a chapter/page or so of each eligible or nominated fic and decide how you feel about them. That's pretty much how I did most of my nominations. I hadn't read most of the ones I nominated before I chose whose name I wanted to put in, so I read through the first couple of pages of each one. If I thought I liked it, I read the rest of the chapter; if I didn't, I put it aside. Same thing with the voting process. You don't have to follow fics for this kind of thing, but it would be rather nice to look them over at the very least. :/ Not saying I'm offended or anything. Just making a suggestion because... yeah.

    I'm reluctant to lessen the timeframes because, even while you are right that there were periods of inactivity, we got so many nominations and votes that I don't want to lose those.

    Jumping in to say congrats to all the winners and the nominees! I knew I wouldn't win this year seeing as I didn't do much fanfic writing, but thank you for the nominations and the votes! 'Til the next awards!

    Hurrah for Best Comedy, the one I am usually most interested in! =D (Third time is quite nice too). And yay for the other awards and placings too. Thanks for everyone who voted (even if I do remain a bit confused on say the best description award), and congrats to all the other winners and nominees!

    Thanks also to TGB for organising this again and Dragonfree for setting up the voting and the post too (again, those are some impressive scripts you use there).

    I do personally feel that the nomination/voting time could be reduced a bit more than it has this year - otherwise no real complaints from myself, even if it's just by a small bit.

    Congratulations to all the nominations and winners! There were some awesome fics in the lineup- I better put some of these fics on my "To Read List." Thanks to all who have voted for me and everyone else, I'm happy I even got nominated in the first place.

    Here's to another great year of writing!

    Well done everyone! Was a very good year by the looks of nominations, votes and awards. Well done and thank you to all those that ran and chaired this! It was wonderful, and although we had some inactivity, I think it worked very well.

    One thing to ask, there appeared to be some awards where people recieved the same no. of awards, so are those places joint? Simple question I know, sorry, but I'm not sure as it still listed it in a ranking order.

    I decided to stay out of the voting/nominations this year, because due to other obligations, I had little time to spend on the forum, other than to post chapters of Roots and take brief glimpses at other people's stories. But I want to congratulate all the winners on their hard work, and wish luck to those who didn't win and want to aim higher. Practice and don't give up!

    And speaking of aiming higher, I was shocked/happy that I was voted the Most Improved Writer. It really means a lot to me, and I'm grateful for the fact that people notice better writing in my new stories when compared to my old ones. It makes me happy just to be nominated in the Awards, because in that, I see how much my writing has changed.

    I can't promise a great increase in forum activity for a while, other than posting chapters and other writing ideas (I have many), but for now I'll keep lurking and reading.

    Once again, congratulations to everyone!

    Well, well, well. Congratulations to everyone else who won stuff or was nominated, and a small pat on the back for me, I think. In fact, I'm so happy that I think I've earned some Indian sweetmeats. Oh, and thanks to everyone who voted for me! I could've written the best story in the world and got absolutely nowhere if you guys hadn't been so kind as to choose mine over the others, so yeah. Thanks to you all.

    Once again, congratulations and thanks to all who deserve them - and now I must leave, to go and live up to all their expectations.

    Two wins and two really close (by one vote each!) second placings? That's a lot better than I ever imagined I'd do, so thanks so much to everyone who voted for me. Congratulations to all the other winners, and I hope to be back in force next year with some serious entries in the Chapter fic categories.

    No way. My story got a solid fourth place in the Best Horror Fic award? And it actually won the Most Frightening Scene award?! Wow. Just...wow. That's a really pleasant surprise that I didn't expect at all. Thank you. The people who voted for me...I'm extremely grateful to you guys. I'm just hoping that my story exceeds your expectations, and I will work my hardest to ensure that it does just that.

    All of the winners and all of the people who were nominated: congratulations to all of you. Even though some of you didn't quite win, you've all made outstanding contributions to this forum community and are fully deserving of the accolades you've received. Mass kudos and respect.

    Oh, hey. I'd almost forgotten these awards existed. I was sort of planning to vote back in March, but I wanted to go and skim some of the fics first to get a less biased opinion of things, like JX mentioned, and I never got around to doing that in the end. D:

    Yay for Foregone Conclusion winning Best Character Development and Three Heads are Better Than One winning Best Pokémon-Centric! =D Both are categories that were more or less the focus of the respective fic, so it's great to see that other people appreciate those qualities of them, too. And runner up in Best Characterisation in a Short Story for the latter isn't bad, either. Thanks to everyone who voted for me, on either fic! (Foregone Conclusion's award also makes me happy simply because it proves that at least five people have read it, which is more than I was aware of. If any of the people who voted for it wants to drop me a quick VM or PM just to let me know they've read it, feel free - I always get warmfuzzies hearing that my stories have brought enjoyment to someone. :3)

    Congratulations to everyone else who won, too! I was particularly pleased to see The Thinking Man's Guide to Destroying the World win the awards it did; as someone who's read and very much enjoyed that story, I feel that it absolutely deserved those. And congratulations to all the runners up as well, since being nominated is still a significant achievement, after all.
