Okay gang, here is the revised RACCies nomination ballot. After a short
the consensus of the half dozen or so people who participated seems to be to
fold in/cannibalise the aCCies into the RACCies. Thanks to everyone who
both online and via email.
Still... < sigh > So many ballots gone by the wayside.
Anyway, here are the perennially recycled instructions for the RACCies
The RACCIES are a two-step process:
1. Nominations. Open. The only restriction is that you may
not nominate yourself or any stories you worked on. (I will
except crossovers under the assumption it is the others'
contributions you wish to recognize ;] ). The objective is
to overlook _no_ quality stories, yet still keep the ballot
a reasonable length, so nominate as many as you wish but
make sure _someone'd_ vote for them.
In addition to the below listed categories,
participants are encouraged to create 'special' (read --
comedic) awards to include in the balloting. Include a
winner with your award. I will exert editorial fiat over
these nominations, choosing the funniest among duplicates
and dismissing ones in bad taste or ones with vicious intent.
Nominations are RACC-wide: all posted imprints, stories
and authors are eligible as long as the story(ies) in
question were posted after 23 DEC 2004 and before 24 DEC 2005.
Nomination Period ends: JAN 31 2006
2. Elections. Crunch time. Pick three and rank them 1,2,3
(no self-voting). Track and field scoring in effect -- ie 1st is
5pts, 2nd is 3pts and 3rd is 1pt. Most points wins. Democracy
Election Period ends: FEB 28 2005
NOTE: Please return all nominations and ballots to

ALSO: I highly recommend each author post a message informing the
community which of his works are eligible. It may just jog
someone's memory into voting for you!
