The Yuletide nominations tutorial
for nominating under this year's new rules has gone up. Since members of this community may be interested in nominating Points or other of Scott's works, I thought it might be a good idea to have a planning post here.
I will definitely
be nominating Points, with my four character nominations being Nicolas Rathe, Philip Eslingen, Istre b'Estorr, and Hanselin Caiazzo.
If that's what you were going to nominate, consider it already done and feel free to nominate something else. However, if you want to request a Points story about Coindarel, or Aicelin Denizard, or Gavi Jhirassi, or anyone but the four characters I'm nominating, you will have to nominate Points yourself along with the characters you want. Characters who aren't specifically nominated can't be specifically requested, and no one is allowed to add characters to a fandom they haven't nominated. (NB: If you want to request, say, Eslingen/Coindarel, you do not need to re-nominate Eslingen. So nominate another character you'd like included or you think someone else might want to request.)
If you're planning to nominate different characters in Points, or to nominate another of Scott's books, I encourage you to comment here letting everyone know. That way people can plan and get the most out of their three nominations.
