  1. FM Base Story Awards 2015.



    The FM-Base Story of the Year Awards

    Ok, so this is the thread where people can nominate their favourite stories for the FM15 Story of the year awards. First though, a few rules.

    1. Please, before nominating, check that the story you would like to nominate hasn't already been nominated by someone else. If it has, a simple "like" can be used to cast your vote.

    2. Everyone may nominate/like multiple stories. If you're anything like me it will be too hard to just choose one!

    If you do nominate more then one story please do it in a separate post so its clear which story people are "liking"

    3. You may nominate your own story (Brendn )

    4. Nominations are only open to the Story of the Year/Early Bird Award.

    For now nominations for all other awards will be determined by our judging panel until I see how this works. The Early Bird awards will serve as a test run of sorts for the big show!

    The judging panel consists of: Myself (Duh), Mike, Yeti01, CantgetenoughofJelavic & Brendn, for anyone who is interested.

    5. The nomination period for this set of awards will end a week from today so that's 16/6/2015 at which point I will post a list of the final nominee's & open poll's to decide the winners.

    Winner's will be announced on the 1st of July after "voting" period.

    6. Have fun with it! I expect a bit of discussion. This is your thread, your awards, so enjoy!




    Nominations for the Early Bird

    Story of the Year are now

    open!!!

    Haha, was about to chip you for that!

    BTW, obviously posting a nomination counts as a vote as well.

  6. Another obvious one.


    Liverpool F.C. The 5 Year Plan.

    The rise of Fulham

    The attention to detail alone is reason enough for a nomination.

  8. So, will whatever gets the most nominations / likes here get thrown into a poll ie strawpoll to decide the ultimate winner?

    Strawpolls have a maximum of 4 entries so the judges will pick the top 4.


    If there are 5 judges: At least 4 judge nominations are needed to go on the starpoll and a judge can't nominate for their own story so the other four judges need to nominate for a story written by one of the judges to get up there.

    the strawpoll is then put up for public vote.

    For the main award the 4 stories with the most votes/likes will be placed into a straw poll. If there is a tie Judges will vote to decide the final line up. From there people can vote for their favourite of the final 4.

    The other categories we will just have to argue about until we settle on 4

    Haha I meant "same story" as in it's also "relatively new but I love it"

  17. The only thing I wasn't sure about was didn't those two start after the cutoff though?

    I don't think there was one, it's just any story that's been done so far

  19. I'll throw this one out there - it was one of the first I read when I joined up and I liked that it followed an "off the beaten track" route.

    Get It India!

    Ah ok - I got the impression it was anything started Oct to the end of March.

  22. And here is my other nomination,

    Malmo FF - A Swedish Adventure

    Nope, just up until the voting period regardless of when it started. Personally i like the idea that a "short story" at the early awards could go on to win the big prize at years end!


  24. what about a lifetime achievement award or hall of fame for a specific person or story. like klippybo's bilbao saves or stonecolds old aberdeen save or even the controversial mojodex's amazing few stories? also could do a persistency award for someone who has a lot of different stories

  25. Been a while, but this deserves to be on there:

    All Aboard! - The Managerial Rollercoaster

    Funny you should mention Mojo, was only re-reading the great scandal the other day. Pity it ended like it did. Understand people were upset & personally prefer to play straight up & let the chips fall where they may but they are called FM stories not FM documentaries.

    A blast from the past type of award could be something to look at in the future, actually quite like the idea, but for this first one I just want to keep things simple & see how it plays out.

    I want this to be a recurring thing so each addition will, hopefully, get bigger & better!


  27. Bump & update. Current voting looks like this...




    Jamie Carragher - A Managers Story - 8 votes.

    The Alpha Romeo Metaphor II - 6 votes

    Liverpool F.C. The 5 year plan, Life after Depor & The Rise of Fulham - 4 votes

    Get it India - 3 votes

    All Aboard the Managerial Roller Coaster, Limerick FC the 4th, A Swedish Adventure, Road to Glory, the Rhys Burnett Story - 2 votes





    At this point it would require a judges vote to decide the top 4! Keep the likes & nominations coming!


  28. Wow! Overwhelmed This is a cool idea I didnt realise anyone did this! I nominate Klopps haha!

    Hate to be a ball baster but can we please just try to "like" the original nomination? All 3 are already mentioned. Just makes the voting so much easier to keep track of.

    Also don't forget to go to this thread (FM Base Story Awards: Interest & Idea's Thread.) to give your recommendations to our judges for the other categories or to make suggestions for award categories for the end of year.

    So far I can confirm that there will be an award for Story writer of the year - for the writer who produces numerous, high quality stories throughout the year.

    All suggestions not only welcome but appreciated!
