Stargate Fan Awards  
Um... is this actually the Jack/Daniel awards? At least in the slash category because that's the only pairing listed and I'm pretty damn sure (because someone beat me to it) that ivorygates's had a Cam/Teal'c fic nominated and I can't find it anywhere on the site (she can't find it or another story that's gen either).

I am so confused by the site.

I can't speak to that specific fic, mostly because I've slept since then. I do know that there were some categories that had too few nominations to "make" (at least 5 nominations are required for the category to go forward). We tried to find a way to combine those categories in such a way as to avoid dropping any nominations, but I know there were a handful we simply couldn't find a way to keep. It might be that it's in another, combined category, or it might be one that just didn't fit anywhere else and there weren't enough to let the category go forward. This happens every year, sadly.

I'm SO far behind my flist today... :-)

is there any way for anyone to search for a specific author on the site?

And are you referring to dropping a category or dropping the story nominated because there wasn't enough stories for a category?

Both. On occasion we can find a way to combine them that makes sense (for example, "femslash" has stories from both SG1 and SGA). Sometimes we can find a new home for stories when a cat doesn't make. Sometimes not only does the author's first cat choice not make, but the second doesn't either. Even then, we *still* take a good long look at what's sitting there and see if we can find a way to to fit enough of them together to make new categories with at least 5 stories in them.

At the moment, no, there's no way to search for a nom or a story. However, it's not a bad idea. I'll go drop it in our "suggestion box". No promises, except that we'll talk about it. :-)

All I can say to that is thank you for answering because honestly... I think it sucks if a nominated story is dropped at all. There should be a miscellaneous category, different than 'other' if it has to be so no story is dropped if it's nominated. Because it's not fair to the person nominating, nor to the author that they think is worthy of being considered.

And thank you for also putting that idea in the suggestion box.

Honestly, that thought crossed my mind this afternoon. I could kicked myself for not suggesting it. Believe me, that's something I will *DEFINITELY* be fighting for for next year. Though, the best thing would be for us to get even more nominations so there won't be *ANY* cat that won't make. Yeah, yeah, dreaming here. :-)

Quite welcome. I think it's worthwhile. Gotta admit, I'll spend more time fighting for the "misc" cat, but will definitely put forth the other one. Mostly, I think there might be coding issues we won't have time for (due to some other things that are slated before the next cycle starts), but it's going to go in the hopper.
