You've probably noticed that we've had a "coming soon" image in the Awards section of our sidebar for a long time now, and I think most of us can agree that it's time to do something about that! Our first awards will go up in August, with both member and character categories. Member awards will be decided by the staff, who aren't eligible to win them - we don't want them turning into a popularity contest! Character awards, however, are decided by EVERYONE, and any character may win!
A voting thread will go up for each of the character award categories for one week (or two, we'll have to see), and then the awards will be placed in the sidebar for the entire month. Nominees will be decided in the period between voting times, and there will be five nominees for each category. Members may suggest nominees at any time before voting goes up, and it will be a combination of member suggestions and staff discretion that decide which nominees make it to voting.
