I really don't want to sound bitter, however I would like to draw your attention to something.

This round, and the previous rond, and the round before that... most of the winners are Snape/Hermione stories. I'm not saying all of them, but as I'm quite sure, most.

Therefore, this limits the other ships' authors from winning. I really don't know what you think about this, maybe your OTP is SS/HG, but I would like to say most authors aren't quite happy with this.

I would suggest that you open a category specifically for SS/HG, and don't let that ship be nominated in other categories, or something. Just please do something about it. If all the winners are going to be SS/HG, I'm sure that will lower the participation in the future.

I'm eager to see what you come up with.

Thank you.
Though I noticed this, too, to me it just seems that SS/HG shippers are more motivated to vote. Next round, nominate your favourites and spread the word, maybe the readers of your chosen ship(s) are unaware of the existence of the Multifaceted Awards.

Personally, I don't think opening a new category for SS/HG makes sense, as you would have to compare fics of completely different genres. And it's not about ship, but quality of writing. I have read most nominees' stories and it just so happened that the ones I liked best were mostly SS/HG. But I have voted (and will again vote) for fics that are simply better written, even though the pairing doesn't appeal to me.

My conclusion: It's only natural that in ship-neutral Awards the ships with a larger fan-base will get more nominees and votes.

Every round features a certain character and 'featured category', this means round four has a category 'Best Remus Lupin Fic'. Last time it was Snape, etc. The other categories stay the same (more or less).

You are, of course, right in saying that. I guess more advertisement is in order for the next round :)
Trust me, my OTP is definietly not SS/HG - I can barely read it, actually. I wasn't in charge the first round, but I have a feeling that it may have been advertised at more SS/HG related comms and shippers have been following it ever since - the first featured round was Hermione.

I'm not going to create a purely SS/HG category, though. Once you start making ship-specific categories, the question becomes where do you stop? X/Y have got their own category, so why can't X/Z, etc...
And I apparently can't spell 'definitely'. *face palm*

Yes, yes, I agree. It was just a spontaneous suggestion anyway. So excuse me for the lack of logic. I guess more advertising is needed in non-SS/HG communities :)
I completely agree that the reason SS/HG stories keep winning is because it's advertised so heavily in SS/HG communities. There were some other ships that won this time, which was nice.

However, if the next round will center around Ginny, you can be sure that I'll alert all of the H/G, D/G, and whatever other shippers I can find for the round. I'd love to see more variety, as well.

*grins* And since H/G and D/G have such well-established fan bases, I think it will be a VERY interesting fight for who wins the featured category.
i was wondering... will there be certificates like the last two rounds?
Yes. I've just recieved them from jawy, who has been doing the graphics for this round. I think they look fantastic and they'll be posted tomorrow, hopefully.
