Not open for further replies.
This thread is only for Nominations, Seconds, and Nomination Corrections for timelines from the before 1900 Forum. Furthermore, this award is only applicable to Timelines with POD's ranging from 1701 to 1899

Timelines must have been worked on in 2016 to qualify

The Rules for the Turtledove Awards have changed so before submitting any Nominations or Seconds please read the complete set of Rules and New Categories. The Below are just a reminder.

A Quick Overview:

  • All Nominations require Seconds.
  • Discussion-only threads are not eligible. There must be an actual timeline or story included.
  • Authors may request that their works NOT be considered for nomination or removed from nomination. If an author requests that their work be removed from nomination after a nomination and/or second has been made, then the nominator (and/or second) may make another selection. Note that it is up to the author to monitor categories in which their work is eligible and to request that they not be included in the Turtledoves in that nomination thread.
  • No self-nominations nor self-seconds
  • Each member can make only one nomination and only one second to another nomination per category.
  • Previous Turtledove Award winning threads are NOT eligible for nominations in any category.
  • Please see this list of previous Turtledove Winners by Category (and others) for reference prior to making nominations to see if they had previously won a Turtledove award.
For New Nominations please arrange the nomination as follows:

Best Colonialism and Revolutions Era Timeline:
Title of nominated work (with Hypertext Link); author

To create a hypertext link to a thread:
Go to that thread and highlight and copy the thread url in the web browser navigation bar, then type the title of the thread in your post, highlight that title, then hit the hypertext link button just above your message area (chain link), a box will pop up in which you paste the url, and that should do it. YOU MUST INCLUDE A HYPERTEXT LINK IN YOUR NOMINATION.

Please format a second to a nomination in the following way

Quote the nomination using the "Quote" function. and below the quote please type:

"I second the above nomination for:
Best Colonialism and Revolutions Era Timeline: Title of nominated work (with Hypertext Link); author"

Another reminder

Similarly, TLIA* type timelines are eligible to be nominated both for in their forum and in the Flash Timelines category, but must have two different people nominate and second it for the TLIA* category than did their nomination and second in the forum category.


Please do not go beyond Seconding a timeline, this creates clutter and makes it hard to find independent Nominations and Seconds when creating the polls. Thanks guys.

Also, as a reminder, please make reference to the correct formatting for nominations and seconds.
