Welcome to One Piece Awards 2016 A special award for fans of One Piece to nominate and vote for what we think is the best in One Piece! After a long 4-year break of One Piece Awards, we are finally back! Through the years, we have many new people joining us, including the new team of moderators, as well as old members re-joining the forum, we have decided to revive our long lost One Piece Awards since it first held. Aren't you excited for it? In this thread, it will be a place for us to hangout and discuss general topics related to the event, and to express our thoughts, ideas, impressions and feedback throughout the entire event. One Piece Awards consist of "Nomination" phase and "Voting" phase which allow us to nominate and vote for a particular character, scene, arc, place, etc, which we think is the "best" and "favourite" or even the "worst" and "least favourite." Here's an overview of the Awards: Award Format The event consists of two phases: A nomination phase and a voting phase, each consisting of one week, with one-day break in between for administrative reasons. There are 25 different categories for you to nominate and vote in. Nomination Phase (26th November - 2nd December 2016): You will make your nominations in the category threads. If a nominee has already been nominated before, you are allowed to simply state your support for that nomination to show your interest, build up hype and campaign for that nomination. Break (3rd December 2016): For administrative reasons. Voting Phase (4th December - 10th December 2016): A poll is created for all the nominations and we, the fans of One Piece, will have one week to decide what to vote for and convince as many as we can to support our votes to make the "nominees" we support turn out victorious. Results and Sharing (11th December - 13th December 2016): After the Voting Phase has concluded, we will tabulate and post the results of the "winner" for all the categories. At the same time, we can share our thoughts of the individual category. Final Discussion and Sharing (11th - 17th December 2016): This thread will remain open for further discussion and sharing of thoughts and feedback of the event. We also welcome suggestions and ideas for the next Award. Nomination Info - "How to Nominate" You may nominate three (3) entries in each category. During the nomination phase, you can change your nomination. However, please do put up a new post stating your change instead of editing your previous post. This is to avoid confusion to all participants and for ease of administrative purposes. For the nomination phase to run smoothly and to avoid situations where nominations are omitted or included by accident, please state your nominations clearly. It is preferable to highlight your nominations with bold red text. Please also explain or state the reasons of your nomination. For example: "I nominate <insert nominees> for <insert category>," followed by an explanation or reasons of your nomination. Voting Info - "How to Vote" Once the nomination phase is over and the polls are made, the voting phase begins. Please bear in mind that once you have voted, the count will be final. Therefore, please do think carefully before casting your votes. You may like to discuss ideas and opinion with other participants before voting. Think and choose wisely will be the key.
