After speaking with the Development Team of various forums, we've all agreed on a new procedure of conducting awards for fanfictions/oneshots.

The Procedure [starting next year's awards]
There is a list of forums below [list is subject to change to the discretion of the DT of the forum in question] that will be participating in the awards henceforth. What will happen is that the DT of each of those forums will let the DT of the FF Forum know what categories are required for that forum [FF/OS related] and those will be added in the final list of categories for the entire FF Awards.
What will happen then is that those categories will be put up in that particular forum and members of that forum will get the chance to nominate one story per category. The link to the nomination thread will be posted in all the participating forums, allowing members from all of those members to join in. Nominations for each forum will occur one by one.
Members will then be allowed one round of voting on all the nominations to shortlist about 2-3 stories per category. A panel of DT judges and/or members [yet to be decided] will read those stories [2 chapters for Fan Fictions - one chosen by author, other chosen by judge] and decide the winner based on a certain guideline [which will be revealed to members once it's created to allow for any changes you all would like].
For example:
The Madhubala Forum DT decides on 2 categories -> Best Madhubala-Rishabh Fan Fiction & Best Madhubala-Sultan Fan Fiction. Members of all the forums participating can then nominate fan fictions that come under both those categories. Those fan fictions can be posted at the Madhubala forum itself or the Fan Fiction Forum [or anywhere else on IF].
There will one round of voting where only members get to vote shortlisting 2-3 stories per category. Chosen judges will read those stories and decide on the winners based on a certain guideline.
This procedure not only allows for the involvement of members but also increases the chances of more writers from all over IF get recognized instead of just the more popular authors. Do keep in mind that this means ALL those forums are having their Forum's Story Awards at the same time as well. This ensures that the Awards are a more grand affair.
Of course, the FF Forum will also have it's Member Awards along with the story and the winners for those will be decided using the old procedure [only voting of the members].
Please find the list of forums joining our forum and giving this a try for next year below. Let's see how this works. Big smile

Joty/hershi... superb idea i think... this way we will get to see stories other then ArShi get nominated. what i would like to suggest is that final nomination thread can be GA-ed as it is an intra-forum activity which comprises of various other forum and an not just a FanFic forum activity. This way the exposure will be more and various other members those who are hardly aware of FanFictions gets to participate as well.
i would also like you to add Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon - Ek Baar Phir FFs in your list because there are many stories written on them and me along with the DTs are keeping 100% track on them with the list updated daily under OS/SS/FF category. I would also suggest each forum should have that list updated by someone daily so that during the awards time it is easier for everyone to find them. We can surely do it for the new forums as everything can start from scratch. 

Here is the link what should be done in a particular forum by a dedicated person just like they update WU/VU and Archives

This can also be done yearly in order to keep a check on the FFs so that the story is not in the nomination two times.

FF DTs can work on the format how to arrange the FFs after consulting with individual forum DTs and some valuable suggestions by members which would be easy to incorporate.

Thats it for the time being will come back once again if i have anything productive to contribute.

thanks for this thread.

Good luck Smile

But how about those readers who don't visit serial fourms and stick to FF section to read FFs? And some who present at another fourm and read other jodi stories. ? Means one will be active on MB fourm but read Arshi and Maneet ffs.

How do they vote? Are they eligible for voting?
