General Rules and Categories - Must Read!

-- Winning titles will be announced throughout the site and eventually there will be banners on the database pages of winning entries.
-- There will also be a second set of "panel" awards, as well as some bonus panel votes just for fun. We're going to hold out a few more days to see if we can get some more volunteers, then panelists will be announced here once they can be finalized with sothis. If you are among the group, all you need to do differently is to put your votes in the normal threads in blue, as well as vote in the bonus thread. Ideally it's best to hold off on voting until late in the time period since that gives you time to catch up on a thing or two you missed, but if you want to vote early and then just go and make edits as needed, that works as well.
-- Although these awards are "official" in that sense, the primary goal is to provide a fun/interesting/amusing event for the A-P community to participate in. As such, please try to keep the drama to a minimum - have respect for the opinions of others, try not to throw too much of a fit if your favorite series doesn't do well, etc.
-- Obvious spammers trying to rig the results will be ignored (no site profile/forum profile until the voting started, no anime list, etc). For this reason, if you're fairly new to the forums and want to participate, please make sure you have a relatively complete profile on the site and a signature linking to your mainsite page.
-- Moives and OVAs are excluded from the Animation category due to vast budget differences.
-- For the genre and lead/supporting character votes, we will supply a list of series/characters to be considered eligible for that vote. This is being done to prevent the endless bickering/questioning amongst users as to what qualifies as a <genre>/lead that would inevitably occur if it were left wide open. The lists are posted in their respective threads.
-- These lists are based on some initial work in the planning thread and suggestions made in the fix threads over the past couple weeks. Of course, they will never be anything more than a line-of-best-fit sort of thing, and nigh-everyone is going to have some gripe or another. Please have some consideration for the difficulty in getting these together and the impossibility of pleasing everyone.
-- That said, the leads list is still missing info for many anime and has some other choices that were an educated guess at best. If anyone has any fixes to suggest, (namely for the less popular shows) please post in the leads list fixing thread. I'll try and get a second opinion to confirm the suggestion, then make the change if it's all clear to do so. (It might not be, for instance if a character has been recieving votes it'd be a bit late to take it off the leads list) ***Note that we want to restrict it to at most one lead of each gender wherever reasonably possible, so please don't post things such as a list of every girl in a harem series -.-'
-- The voting will not be poll-based. Instead, each user can vote for up to three entries in a category, (five for Best Series Overall) in ranked order. Then points will be assigned based on the rank: 3 points for a first-ranked vote, 2 for a second and 1 for a third. Whatever has the most points at the end of the vote wins in that category.
-- Please make sure your votes are in bold, preferably at the top of your post, and that any commentary or discussion you want to post afterwards avoids using bold text. This makes the counting much easier.
-- If you haven't seen more than one or two series in a category and therefore are unable to vote for three, you are still free to vote if you really want to. However, a vote for just one series will count as 1 point, and a vote for two series will count as 2 points for the first and 1 for the second.
This is for a variety of reasons. First, if we don't do it that way then people would start strategically voting only for their favorite so as not to give other series a 2-1 point boost that might help them win over the favorite. Second, it can be argued that those who have only seen one or two anime in a category aren't really as familiar with it as someone who's seen several in the group; so a token vote for their favorite 1 out of 1 one shouldn't impact the final result as much as someone picking the best 1 out of 6 or 10. In an ideal world people who aren't particularly familiar with a category would just abstain, but for those who really feel their fondness of the 1-2 anime they did see should still count for a little something, we're not going to ban them from voicing that.
-- Ties will go the anime with the lower "watched" count in the anirec.
Category-specific details will be posted in the appropriate threads. Surely most people are going to have an issue with something or other, but please bear in mind the enormity of the task. We did our best to make things as reasonable, fair and widely acceptable as we could, and even then those things sometimes conflict with one another. And since this is something we're doing on an annual basis, precedence, repeatability and making things applicable for any given year were factors as well. We can try to respond to comments/questions/concerns as best we can, but do try to be understanding.
With any luck, this will all go pretty smoothly and should prove to be an entertaining exercise for most people. So, happy voting ^_^
