We had planned/hoped to have the winner announcements posted today. We also knew there was a chance this news could be delayed, hence our clever disclaimer: Winners will be announced Sunday, April 29 barring blizzards, black-outs, and alien invasions. Any delays will be posted as necessary. We have a delay. We are posting it.

We hope to have the winners posted within the next 3-4 days.

Thank you for your patience!!!

The announcement post will be advertised in lots of places so you won't miss it.

deedo_2313 made us fabulous banners to promote the nominations. I know just enough HTML to be dangerous and have attempted to modify the code to make them "VOTE for your favorite" banners. Original beautiful artwork created by deedo_2313. Any subsequent damage has been done by me.

Some important notes concerning these nominations:
  1. We did not post any stories if we did not receive the approval of the author. If you nominated a story which does not appear on the list, this is probably the reason for its absence.
  2. We made every effort to check and double-check the links to the stories. If you find one that doesn't work, please let us know.
  3. Some of the categories have been combined. We tried to be as true to the intent of the stories as possible. But we could not have categories with only 1 nomination. That explains the "other" categories.
  4. Some stories do not have warnings. We tried to find and list any warnings the author had provided. These were not always included with the stories. Our best advice is caveat emptor.
Voting opens at 12:01 (EST) tonight. Please show these stories love and vote!!!

 
 
 
15 March 2012 @ 09:17 pm
Two announcements on behalf of all the Ohana Favorite mods:
  1. Voting will begin Sunday, March 18 at 12:01 a.m. EST. (AKA just after midnight Saturday, March 17. You'll see when the poll is posted.) We'll post the master list of nominations tomorrow, I hope. And I will have the list double and triple checked by all the Mods so I don't leave anyone out or list any of the stories incorrectly. You know, like I did last time. 
  2. We still have 11 authors who have not responded to our emails concerning their nominations. We won't be posting any stories on the nomination or voting list until we get the okay from the author. If you got a note saying you were nominated and haven't responded yet, please email us at the mod email. If you aren't sure if you responded, email us and I'll check for you. If we don't receive a response by Friday, March 16 at 11:59 p.m., the story will be disqualified.
Thanks!! I'm very excited about the voting almost being here. Hope you are too!!!
 
 
 
Since Ohana Favorites voting doesn't start until next Sunday, let's use the time until then writing Hawaii 5-0 Haiku!!!

Why? Why Haiku?

Why not? I love Haiku. I suck at writing them but that doesn't matter! (And I think Chin would find it really Zen, don't you?)

What is Haiku? Here you go (stolen shamelessly from here.


Definition here===>Collapse )

If we get "enough" entries, the other mods and I will award a prize for the best H50 Haiku. Of course, I haven't actually told them we're doing this, or asked them if they agree. Ah well.

(If I did this right, the comments shouldn't be screened so we can all enjoy the fruits of our labor.)

Only 2 rules:
  1. They have to be related to Hawaii 5-0 in some way.
  2. They should follow the customary 5-7-5 format.
On your mark. Get set. GO HAIKU!!!

Sure, post your limericks here too. I'm open to it! Do I need to find an "official" definition? 'Cause I got nothing!



 
 
 
06 March 2012 @ 06:03 pm
Not that this has anything to do with the Ohana Favorites. But here it is!! Go Team 5-0!!!

 
 
 
05 March 2012 @ 12:26 am
Thanks to everyone who sent in a nomination.

Nominations are now closed.

Voting will be held 12:01 a.m. (EST) Sunday, March 18 through 11:59 p.m. (EST) Sunday, April 15.

(And if you've been nominated and haven't responded with approval, or declining the nomination, please respond as soon as you can.)

Thanks again!!!!

Your favorite Hawaii Five-0 stories at the Ohana Favorite Awards!!

***It's entirely possible that I was stoned when I compiled the "master list" under the cut. It contains omissions and errors and God-knows-what.

It is not, thankfully, the official master list of nominations. The official, final list will be compiled and double-checked prior to that posting. If you are an author who has graciously accepted a nomination but you are not listed, I'm very sorry. And if I have listed your story in a category that is in error, accept my apology! Send me a note and I'll make sure it's right on the actual spreadsheet that we are keeping. I'm pretty sure it's right but I'll have someone double-check it too!

The correct, honest to God final-final MASTER master-list will hopefully be posted Friday, March 16. No matter what, voting will begin on Sunday, March 18. And it will last until April 15 so you'll have time to read any of the stories that are new to you before voting closes.

Thanks. And I'm sorry. (And, sadly, I've never been stoned in my entire life. So I can't really blame the errors on anything but... IDEK... me, I guess.)





Reminder: 11:59 p.m. tonight (Sunday, March 4, 11:59 p.m. EST) is the deadline to submit nominations for the first ever Ohana Favorite Awards!! 

All the details can be found here: Ohana Favorite Awards!!
