Subject: A Few Addendum Notes about the 1999 FK Fan Fiction Awards

Feel free to forward.

Adjustment to ADULT 2 Categories


For the FK Fan Fiction Awards....

Reminder:  Only one Voter Id per Real Person, applied for on
the Voter Id Application form on the FK Fan Fiction Awards
webpage by the Real Person.

That Real Person (You), will be applying for a Voter Id using your
REAL NAME, Email Address and Mailing Address.

I've seen a number of voter applications submitted by the same
person, perhaps on the behalf of friends/family, etc.  I would
strongly recommend that that Real Person fill out the Voter
Application for him or herself.

Please remember this rule as well:

Who can nominate and/or vote?

and applies and
receives a Voter Id through the online Voter Id application process (or
through email from fkawards@f....... for those without web access)

If I see any questionable Voter Id applications, I may reneg their Voter
Id temporary and contact the person for more information, especially
if their Voter Id Application is questionable (i.e. it doesn't abide by
the Rules as detailed above and on the FK Fan Fiction Awards FAQ.

I'm sorry to have to be strict on this, however, I also want to ensure
that the Nominations and Voting Process are valid, to avoid the
chances of ballot stuffing, people using numerous alternate email
addresses/personas/friends&relative'snames to get additional Voter Ids

I guess I should warn ya'll that in Real Life, I work in the computer industry,
including networking and know more than a few things about the Internet and
the Web.   I'm definitely going to be using these skills during the awards
process for capturing and validating all submitted votes, applications,
nominations, etc.

What will I be doing with this information?  Mainly just checking to make
sure we don't get any ballot stuffing, false persons or aliases, etc.
participating in the Awards process.   This is to ensure that the Awards
process remains fair.  After the Awards, all information will be thrown into
my Recycle Bin and Emptied..

If you would like to use an alias during the Awards process, or have
any questions about the above, please contact me privately at

Yes, if you have a family member or friend who reads FK Fan Fiction and
uses the same computer,  don't be surprised if I ask you for more information
about these people.

This holds true for any questionable Voter Id Application and/or Story


And yes, nominating your own fan fiction or that of your close friends,
family, etc. is perfectly fine.

The only exception to this possibility is with me, Mel Moser, as I am
not going to participate in the Nominations or Voting, mainly because
I haven't had the time and probably won't have the time to read enough
fan fiction to give it all it's proper due and attention in order for
and awards. (I barely have time to even write, and archive the fan fiction,
let alone read it, though I have read much of it in the past).

However, I do often go back and read stories, such as those who won
previous awards, or capture my attention etc.

SPREAD THE NEWS about 1999 FK Fan Fiction Awards:

And remember, spread the word, because of poor turnout in the past,
I will be looking closely at this years awards, the amount of participation,
etc. If the turnout is poor, I may reconsider continuing the FK Fan Fiction
Awards in future years.  So, tell your friends.  Tell your friends to tell
their friends, get the word out, post information on lists you are on and
remind them of the may wonderful stories (over 2500 on www.fkfanfic.com
alone) we have in FK online fandom.  Not only quantity, but quality, with
numerous stories better than what you read off of most bookshelves.

Adjustment to ADULT 2 Categories

One minor inaccuracy in the first post made about the Awards....
This is correct on the website FAQ but is being corrected here.
The Adult 2 (All Adult category) will only have 5/10 (Historic,
1999) number of categories as follows:

Unless we get a huge number of stories ranking in the Novella
or larger Word Count range, these categories will stay.  This
is based on personal observance of Adult Fan Fiction as posted
to various mailing lists, as well as those sent to be archived on
www.fkfanfic.com.  It's not very often you find a All-Adult story
that contains more than 17,500 words.  If I'm wrong on this,
feel free to correct me and point me in the direction of one or
more of these stories.

As always, feel free to email me with questions, comments, etc.

Subject: Nigel in "Hamlet"

Hi! I just saw Nigel again in "Hamlet" with another fan here in Halifax. A super
production, and he does an awesome job. Nigel "dies" very well, BTW. <G>

Anyone coming up soon that I haven't heard about? I am really looking
forward to meeting more Nigel fans. I have met two groups so far, and it
has been such a great experience. If anyone is coming up soon and would
like to meet, I would love to hear from you.

H-A :)

This sound like a FK/CHiPs xover to anyone else?

Dark Squirette:  I say we don't say anything and catch 'em red-fanged...so
to speak.
Light Squirette:  <aghast> That would be reprehensible!
Dark Squirette:  So?  Blackmail material!<eg>
Kyer <breaking this up>:  Dark---for the thousandth time!---the List Family
members are our *friends*.  They weren't *going* to make snide talk about us
behind our backs!  Now---scoot over and let me type.

<push, push...*glare*> What?  <...SHOVE! thunk!> Ow!  <scoot, scoot>


The funeral has been called postponed until Monday.  I don't know yet
whether we will be going or not as this has seriously screwed up every plan
we made.  So...everything's on hold til more info is forthcoming.

Thanks for all the messages of sympathy.

What would...<whisper> (Aristotle?)...(yeah!)---*Aristotle!*---advise to
Nick if he had trouble getting his..oh, say...WS_FTP95 program to upload to

Subject: missing $, extra stuff?

OK, I got the feeling I owe someone something to get something, and it deals
with FK, and so, if your missing $, and have some extra FK item(s), that you
think where going to be mine, please e-mail me *OFF-LIST* at Wolfy380@a.......
and tell me.
I'm unsubbing from the list ::whimper, pout, whine:: because of the lack of
time I now have to check mail.
McLisa, I hope I'm not breaking any rule(s) by posting this, but hay, tis my
last letter.. ::sigh::

You all are very nice people, and I thank you all for being my friend. Some
of you may have known that a certain "anonymous" letter quite a while ago was
from me, and I thank you for those replies some of you may have known about a
different time dealing with the same thing, and I thank you all for the
replies for that.
ALL of you have in one way or another kept me sane, and ALIVE. I just wanted
to say thanks.

TTYL, hopefully.
