    ★ The Authors Awards ★

    Stefan_Key & Athalle are pleased to present you


    Since 1999, our fan mission authors have generously offered their creations to us insatiable and demanding players. It's high time we rewarded them and showed them how much we appreciate their talent, hard work, and generosity. Today you can do so with this unique award. It is up to you to vote and to choose your favourite author in the following categories:

    1) Your favourite Author (T1/Gold/T2/T3 or The Dark Mod)
    2) Your favourite Fm (The author will be rewarded) (T1/Gold/T2/T3 or The Dark Mod)
    3) The Most Promising New Author (T1/Gold/T2/T3 or The Dark Mod)
    (Because of the small confusion over what constitutes a new author, the 'rules' are being slightly amended. A 'new' author should be anyone who has made 1-3 missions in the last 5 years and who is still active in the Editor community here or at TDM.)

    A little help maybe : Listing of all Authors + Fms (23 pages, forgive mistakes it might have)

    **************

    1rst Prize: Your Favourite Author Award = Laptop
    (Ready for Thief and TDM, Thank you Bikerdude!)

    2nd Prize: Your Favourite FM Award = Pack gamer Mouse/Keyboard or Pc Speaker Kit (Worth ≈ 100€)

    3rd Prize: The Most Promising New Author Award = Game (Steam or Gog) (Worth ≈ 50€)

    4th Prize: A special award for one of the voters (random draw) = Game (Steam or Gog) (Worth ≈ 50€)


    **************

    These Awards will take place in two different phases.

    The first phase starts on May the 7th, and ends on May the 28th.


    You may choose up to 5 award nominees in each of the following categories and either post your nominations in this thread or send your choice through the forum Private Message service to nickie, Nightwalker or Tannar. Here are the award categories with places for 5 nominees in each category:

    Category 1: Your favourite Author
    Author 1:
    Author 2:
    Author 3:
    Author 4:
    Author 5:

    Category 2: Your favourite Fm:
    Fm 1:
    Fm 2:
    Fm 3:
    Fm 4:
    Fm 5:

    Category 3: The Most Promising New Author
    Author 1:
    Author 2:
    Author 3:
    Author 4:
    Author 5:

    The mods will review the submissions, and the 5 most popular in each category will be selected for the 2nd (final) voting phase in which you will choose one of them.

    The 2nd phase will begin on June the 4th, and will end on June the 18th.

    There will be 3 winners, as well as a winning voter who will be chosen by random drawing. The closing of the voting period will be announced. If one of the winners cannot be contacted for the prize-giving, the award will go to the next winner in that category.


    **************

    Thanks to the TTLG staff, particularly nickie for her inestimable help, Tannar for English corrections, Bikerdude & Golem.

    ___________________________________________________________________________________

    ♦ Technical/Artistic Contributor Award ♦


    This award is an addition to the Authors Awards posted in the Fan Missions forum. It is primarily for those people who contribute to mission creation whether it's by technical know-how/assistance or creative artistic endeavour. It can be an author (ex-author) but doesn't have to be.

    Many people work quietly away making missions easier to create, more beautiful to look at or easier to play. All you EdGuilders know who these people are. Their contribution is vital to the success of fan missions and they should also be thanked for all the work they put in.

    You may choose 5 Nominees "Technical" and 5 Nominees "Artistic" and either post in the T1/2 Editor's Guild thread or by pm to Athalle, nickie, Nightwalker or Tannar.

    As stated in the FM forum Award thread, there will be 2 phases of voting. Nominations should be submitted for this category by 28th May. The 2nd phase will be voting by poll on the top 5 nominations in this category (although it might end up being more as might the FM forum Awards).

    Prize Technical : 50€ Gift card to Steam or Techie place like Newegg
    Prize Artistic : 50€ Gift card to Steam or Techie place like Newegg

    (Thanks nickie for the text & Yandros for his help)

    Well, that's a very nice surprise from my french fellow taffers, I didn't know about all this and I think it's a great idea

    A couple questions though :
    - Regarding fms, if I nominate a mission like CoSaS Mission X for example, who would be awarded ? Digital Nightfall was behind the whole thing, but it was actually a team effort, it involved a few designers and writers, plus several people who worked on custom objects, scripts, arts... specifically for the campaign.
    - What defines a promising new author ? Someone who released at least one fm in the last year ? In the last 2 years ? Someone who didn't release a fm yet but already shared some of his work ?

    Amazing idea, guys!
    Couple questions:
    - In a category "Your favourite FM" should I vote for a standalone mission (say, A Midnight in Murkbell) or can I vote for a whole campaign (Calendra's Legacy)?
    - Can T2X be a nominee?

    @ DrK & Marbleman

    In the category "Your Favourite Fm", you can vote for what you want, no restrictions.
    For the prize, we will examine this matter if necessary at the end of the nominations.
    I made a precision concerning " New author " in the first post
    You're welcome !

    Brilliant idea. And yes it will be tough choosing the best 5 in any of the categories but sure will do my best.

    So who gets the laptop if the winner is an author who we can't contact any more?

    And who designed the picture in the OP, it's fantastic, even the ink bottle looks like a purse

    Thank you, clearing.

    This hasn't been done before so there may need to be some adjustments along the way. I also expect that if there is no clear top 5 in any category then we may resort to the old-fashioned method of 'names in a hat' and random selection.

    Thank you Athalle and everyone for sponsoring this, it's a great idea! I would suggest, however, that the wording "New Author = Author who has released at least 1 fm during the last 4 years" be clarified to "New Author = Author who has released his/her first fm during the last 4 years", since many old timers like myself have released at least 1 FM in the last 4 years, and I'm sure that I shouldn't qualify as a newcomer.

    Apologies, clearing, the rules have been more clearly stated. Most Promising New Author should be anyone who released their first mission during the last 4 years and regrettably neither Eternauta nor qolelis qualify: their first missions were in 2010 and 2009 respectively.

    All other nominations received are in the time frame.

    Choosing top favourites is almost impossible but I'm afraid I can only take 5. I've taken your top 5 in 1. and 2. so let me know if you want to make changes.
