Scheduled Server Downtime and Donator Ads

Firstly, we have some scheduled server maintenance coming up. As such, we expect the site to be offline for a short period of time between the late night and early morning hours next Friday and Saturday, June 16 and 17. Please plan your story submissions accordingly!
Secondly, as most of you will remember, HPFF held a fundraiser just over a year ago. Many of you selflessly donated to keep the site alive and in return you were promised site advertisements. However due to issues with the ad software we were using we were unable to follow through on those ads at the time.
We now have new ad software and have used it to run a very successful new author promotion for the past few months. Since this new ad software has performed well with the new story promotions we are now able to give our donators their promised ads.
The new story promotion will continue via the Featured Story section on the home page so please feel free to continue to request to have your new stories featured. After the current Featured Story requests are finished however the ad space will be reserved specifically for fulfilling donator ads.
If you donated to the HPFF fundraiser and would like to claim your ad space please email MJM@harrypotterfanfiction.com with the name you donated under. Include a link to the story or page you would like your ad to lead to as well as a banner for your advertisement. Banner dimensions should be 728 x 90 pixels and must not contain any mature content. You may also reach out through this email address with any questions you have.
We sincerely appreciate everyone who donated to keep the site alive and we look forward to seeing your advertisements!

HPFF Best Story 2017

This year HPFF decided to honour what it sees as the best overall story from all the winning Dobby entries. It was a very close run thing and we were torn between two stories, but eventually we decided...The award for HPFF Best Story 2017 goes to:

How not to be a woodley (M) by NH stadler.

We felt that the other story we were considering also needed to receive something, so for this year we have also decided to give our HPFF Special recognition 2017 award to:

19 Years (M) by Marauder5

2017 Dobby Nominations are Now Open!

Welcome to the 2017 HPFF Dobby Awards!

This yearís Dobby Awards will be run differently from previous years. Both nominations and voting will take place via Google Forms. Nominations will be open now through January 11th. On or around January 16th, a list of stories that have made it into the voting round will be posted here on the archive. Voting will take place January 23rd through January 30th, via a second Google Form.

Stories/authors with the most nominations will make it into the voting round. How many nominations a story/author needs to make it into the voting round will depend on how many nominations there are in that category.

The rules remain similar to previous years and are as follows:

1. You may not nominate or vote for yourself in any category. If you nominate or vote for yourself, all your nominations and votes will be disqualified.

2. You may only submit one response for the nominations form and then one response for the voting form. Once you submit, you will not be allowed to edit. Make sure you have nominated/voted for everything you want before submitting the form!

3. You are not required to use a gmail account for the forms, but you must provide your email address and penname in the form so that your HPFF account can be verified. HPFF will not use your email address or penname for anything other than Dobby purposes.

4. You must have an archive account to nominate/vote.

5. You may only nominate/vote once.

6. All winning stories are subject to a ToS check. Any stories found to be in violation of the ToS or Site Rules will be disqualified.

7. To avoid any confusion, when making your nominations, enter the story title and author name exactly as they appear on the archive.

8. No making deals with friends to nominate their story if you nominate theirs. Members found to be doing this will have all of their nominations disqualified.

9. You may nominate up to two authors or stories in each category.

10. Stories/authors that won in 2015 are not eligible to win in their same category again this year. They can, however, be nominated and win in different categories.

The nomination form can be found at the following link.

https://goo.gl/forms/N0tSUkaFgRyEygo02

It will be open until 11:59pm EST on January 11th.
