The vote has three phases:
- The Nomination Period - During this time you can nominate any site you wish so it may qualify for the vote.
- The Finalists - After the Nomination Period ends the four of us will narrow down the nominations
so there are four to six finalists in each catagory. This is simply to make the vote more
easy to mange for both you and us.
- The Final Vote - Once the finalists are selected and announced, the voting will begin.
Naturally, the site that receives the most votes in each catagory wins.
Phase 1: Nominations
Phase 2: Finalist Selections
Phase 3: The Final Vote
- Due to the fact a vote on a large list of sites would be impossible and futile,
we will narrow down the nominations received in each of the three categories.
- The usual guidelines that we use to decide on sites for the
"Best of the Month" reviews will be used to narrow down the field.
- This phase usually takes about one or two weeks to complete, however it may run
longer if extra time is needed to narrow down the nominations.
- Any sites which are selected as finalists will be told 24 hours in advance
in order to have a chance to prepare their web sites before the voting begins.
Other Terms and Conditions:
- Category # 1 - Combo Sites: Sites in this category should have at least three of following elements: Profiles on all or most of the characters,
Image Galleries, Multimedia Files, Fanficition or Fanart Sections, HTML help, Japanese Culture Information, Merchandise Information, and Opinion Sections.
- Category # 2 - Shrine Sites: For this category, sites must focus on one character
or one recognized group of characters. (For example: The Amazoness Quartet!)
NOTE: The shrine must not be part of a
larger combo site (ie: part of a larger profile section).
It can be part of a collection of several independent
shrines, but should still be a stand alone shrine
with its own index page. No links to
another page by the same person other than for
- Category # 3 - Miscellaneous: As the name says, this category is open to any SM site
other than Combo and Shrine sites. For example:
Fanfic and Fanart Archives, Image Galleries, Multimedia Directories,
Web page reviewers (do not bother to nominate us ^_-),
Link Pages, etc.
If we receive a lot of nominations for
a particular type of site we will add a fourth
category for those nominations during the vote.
- We reserve the right to cancel this process at any time, for any reason.
