Hello, fellow Thundercats fans.
This post is letting everyone know that our preliminary work to get the Fifth Annual awards for the fandom off the ground is almost finished, which means the "fun" parts are just around the corner.
Nominations are expected to begin in early February, so if you haven't already joined the Yahoo group where things take place, feel free to take the time to join up.
For those who don't know, the awards are put together by fans to honor fans who have contributed to the online fandom in many forms - websites, fan fiction, fan art and so on. It's done in an encouraging spirit and I hope everyone considers coming on over and nominating/voting for those whose fan output you've enjoyed throughout 2006.
Joining now is helpful too, because we've been releasing our lists of potential nominees that will be eligible for the awards, and this is your chance to look those over and speak up if anybody was overlooked. We do try to be as fair as possible during this whole process and I wish everyone the best of luck in advance. There's been some great stuff put out by fans for Thundercats in the prior year, so as long as we get some interest and participation, this should really be fun.
Remember, the more fans that take part in the nomination and voting rounds, the less skewed the results will seem so as they say, every vote counts!
Rules and procedures can be found in the files area of the group once you join, and of course, if you have any further questions, we'd be happy to address them in posts at the group.
Thanks, and hope to see you there!
The 2006 Thundercats Fandom Awards Team
