Hey gang,

I'm working with Tanaqui and Aranel Took to get ready for the 2008 MEFAs. We had hope to be ready to start on May 1, which is fast approaching. If everything's ready by then nominations will run May 1-June 15, and the awards will proceed from there. (We may have to push the start date back to May 15 if the website isn't quite ready - if so I will make another announcement.)


In the meantime, I want to make sure everyone will be able to log in. Can everyone try to log in to


If you can log in here, you should be able to log in to the 2008 website as well. So go ahead and try to log in to the above address, to make sure you remember your password and everything. I sent one member her password earlier this week, so you'll be in good company if you can't log in.

(There's one exception to this. If you were a nominated author last year but not a member of MEFAwards, you will probably receive a new account if you're nominated again next year. If you want to keep your old account, please join the MEFAwards Yahoo group. If you're unsure of your status, let me know and I'll check into it.)

If you *do* have troubles, either now or once the 2008 awards start, please email mefasupport-at-gmail-dot-com.

Remember, to nominate stories you need to be a member of the MEFAwards Yahoo group. If you're not a member and would like to nominate stories, please go ahead and join now so that we can get you set up now.


If you want to get involved, you can become a nominator. Or let your story participate. Or (perhaps most importantly!) review some stories. These are the three most common types of participants. It's not glamorous work, but it is crucial - we wouldn't have a MEFAs without you.

We do need some more specialized volunteers, though. If you're interested in doing any of these things, please email mefasupport-at-gmail-dot-com.

That's it! Let me know if you'd like to help out in any of these capacities.
