Here's another fine nest you've gotten me into...




September 30th, 2018

We are shutting down the voting on the PW & MK Awards at midnight PACIFIC TIME, around 3 AM EST. Yes, I stay up that late. I am both Flamingo and Owl.
Your vote matters. Please cast submit your final ballots tonight. You can find all the links to the finalists, and the link to the voting survey on the SHareCon site: http://www.sharecon.net/award.html.
If you've been to the survey but haven't submitted your votes, they're not registered, so make sure you hit that last button to submit your votes. Got a question, ask me!!!
Thanks to all those who have already done their fannish civic duty! You rock!

Just wanted to send a gentle reminder to everyone to remember to vote for the Paula Wilshe and Marian Kelly Awards. Nominees can be found on the SHareCon Awards page at www.sharecon.net, and the voting survey is at http://sharecon.net/limesurvey/index.php/438724. We'll be shutting down the survey on Sept 30, so only 6 days left! Let's show our creative folks, our writers, artists, and vidders, how much we appreciate their efforts! Vote!

September 17th, 2018

The voting survey is live until September 30. Please consider voting for your fellow fans for the only awards system we currently have in our fandom. Participation has been low this year. The large majority of writers, artists, and vidders are not on this list to see your live comments. Many never get any feedback at all. If you haven't voted, please consider investing a few minutes of your time to look over the finalists and vote. Remember, you can vote for as many categories as you want, even only one, if that's your only interest. Once you submit, you can't go back or vote again.
To make things easier for you, here are the relevant websites:
Any questions, just ask

September 1st, 2018

Here we go! We have our voting lists for the 2018 Paula Wilshe and Marian Kelly awards. Congratulations to all the finalists.


We do have to state a few things about the voting process. We won’t be nagging you for numerous nominations. The voting stage is just like voting for a political candidate. One vote per category, per person.

You can vote in as few or as many categories as you like. You must click on SUBMIT at the end of the survey to register your vote. Once you click on SUBMIT you cannot change your vote or vote again. There are links to all the stories, vids, and art. You can view and read and contemplate, then vote and submit.

As always, please shout with any questions and one of us on the award committee will be happy to help

Thank you!

August 14th, 2018

August 12th, 2018

We extended our deadline for the Paula Wilshe and Marian Kelly nominations to August 15. So for all of you last minute types like me, this is very close to the last minute!!! Get your nominations in! Remember, if you haven't nominated your fav new writer, or fav established writer, story, vidder, vid, artist and art, and you see it on the nominations list, go ahead and nominate again. Final voting will come down to the creators and works with the most nominations. Yours counts! Don't delay.

Huge thanks to everyone who worked so hard to submit nominations on the Paula Wilshe and Marian Kelly Awards survey. I really appreciate it.
And HUGE apologies to all the fans who found the survey too daunting to attempt. I am truly sorry. We instituted the survey because we've had good participation on surveys in the past, and because the number of individual email nominations we received in 2016 was tremendous. So, yeah, we made the survey to ease our workload. I admit it. But we didn't want to ease it this much.
This year, the number of fans who've participated is far fewer than 2016. So, we're clearly doing something wrong. We want nominations. We need nominations. We want the awards to be a true representation of how our fandom feels about our creators. Therefore, we are making changes.
1. We are extending the nomination period to AUGUST 15th.
2. We will accept nominations via email! (Addresses below.)

July 23rd, 2018

The deadline for award nominations is July 31! These awards honor fans who were once active creators in their own right and were huge supporters of other creative fans in Starsky & Hutch. Today's creative fans -- writers, artists, and vidders -- keep our fandom fresh with new stories, images, and ideas -- new ways of seeing our guys. They don't get paid for the time they spend bringing these ideas to life. Nominating our creators and their creations lets them know how important they are to us. It's a chance to thank them for their hard work.

The Paula Wilshe Award for New Writers is for anyone who started writing in S&H in the last six years. You can find information on nominating here. The list of current nominees is here. If others have already nominated your favorite writer, nominate her again. The top ten nominees are eligible for the final vote.

The Marian Kelly Hall of Fame award has more categories. You can nominate your favorite Writer, Artist, and Vidder, and also nominate their individual works. You can find information on nominating here. You can see the amazing list of nominees here. Same idea applies: Top ten nominees will be eligible for the final vote.

So why wait? Look over the nominations. Use it as your new best rec list. And nominate. We need to hear from you preferably before July 31. Voting -- it's a good habit to get into.

Forgive the double posts, but that previous registration announcement was the unedited post. Editing helps! Here's the correct post:

This announcement is short and sweet. SHareCon registration is open. The earlier you register, the cheaper it is. Attending rates go up on June 2nd and again on August 26th. Sign up now and save! (Does this sound like an infomercial? Is it working? Good!)

The hotel is also ready to accept room reservations for SHareCon. The hotel page on the SHareCon website has details about the hotel location, room types, rates, and a link to the Homewood Suites by Hilton Baltimore-BWI Airport's custom SHareCon reservation page. If you make reservations through an internet site or an 800 number, the con will not get credit for your suite and you will not get the special con rate.

And finally, a reminder that after this announcement, all further updates will be posted to the SHareCon mailing list and the Starsky/Hutch the Original Bromance (slash ship) community on Facebook, so please make sure you are subscribed to one or both of those sources.

Any questions, feel free to ask Flamingo at flamingoslim @ verizon dot net.

The edited Flamingo!

SHareCon Poll results

I warned you more announcements would be coming! Here's number two.

I want to thank everyone for your enthusiastic response to the SHareCon poll. We got some wonderful input and suggestions. One of the most rewarding and surprising responses had to do with the paper zine. I was pretty sure the zine was just a pet project of the con comm, that most SHareCon goers had, at best, only minor interest in it. But according to our poll, the overwhelming majority wanted a paper zine and the digital version. So that is definitely happening! And we can't have a zine without contributors, so writers, artists, and all other creators, we need you. Keep an eye out for the zine announcement coming soon.

You also had some great fresh ideas for different con activities, games, panels, and surprises for the con bags. We're already looking into all of it! We will be sharing some of your suggestions in the discussion forums, and some we'll keep as fun surprises. As always, your creativity is what makes the con new and exciting after all these years.
Your input is important to us, so keep those ideas percolating. Which reminds me… I need coffee before the next round of announcements.

Just a reminder: we'll be posting the current round of announcements to the usual places, but after that, announcements will be limited to the SHareCon mailing list and the Starsky/Hutch the Original Bromance (slash ship) community on Facebook.
