August Rush nominations - last chance!

Hey everyone! I am thrilled to tell you the interest for August Rush is high this year! Thank you to everyone who nominated fandoms to vote for in the upcoming poll. There is still time to have your say here in the original post, if you missed it and still want to suggest something. So far we have had 73 fandoms suggested, which is mind-blowing! Somehow I need to get this down to five or six!

I've also had three (I think!) people offer to help make rewards at the end of the month (they will need to be worked on in early September) so thanks to all of you, and I'll be in touch in due course!

If anyone is available to help with choosing the pics we'll use and with posting them during the month, please let me know in a comment here - the posting schedule is one post every weekday with one more over the weekend, throughout the month, and then a round-up post at the end of the month, in case that helps you decide. It's a heavy schedule and I had hiddlepinebatch helping out last year, but I haven't seen her around this year much so I'm not sure if I'll be able to count on her again. We took week-about turns posting last time, which worked out well and made it a lot easier for me to keep up with catching all the creations as they appeared, so it'd be great to have someone along with me this year. Anyway, let me know! ;-)

Finally, because we have so many fandoms suggested, what I am going to do with the poll is cut those down to the ones where at least TWO people nominated the fandom (I'm calling these 'popular' fandoms) - I'm assuming that any fandom nominated by only one person is less likely to be as popular. This will bring the vote numbers down to less than 20, to make choosing easier, as the aim of this challenge is to allow as many people as possible to take part. In doing this, I will take into account anyone who didn't nominate something in one of these 'popular' fandoms, so there will be a few fandoms included that only had one vote for this reason.

Rules about voting will accompany the poll at the end of the week. I'll keep the 'nomination' post open for a few more days to allow any late-comers to get their favourites in! And, in case anyone wondered, not nominating or voting doesn't mean you can't take part in the challenge - it's still open to anyone who wants to be involved!

I hope that wasn't too much writing! ONWARDS!
