This is where you can nominate stories to be featured on Main Street!


Nomination Rules:

1. You may nominate your own story or the story of another member or group of members. Please note: Role-plays are not counted as stories.

2. Stories must, of course, be written by the nominee. If any are found to be plagiarised, the nominee in question may possibly be banned from the feature and reported to the Guards.

3. Fanfiction is allowed. However, we would much prefer to feature original pieces. Please keep that in mind when nominating.

4. There is a chance of one person having several stories featured along the way. As fresh blood is still always preferred, try to nominate writers who have not yet been in the limelight.

5. If you are nominating a short story, we ask that it is complete. We will, however, feature unfinished chaptered works.

6. We will not feature stories that have won an official contest or are currently entered in one (there is a chance they might win). If you really like the author, try to find another story of theirs to nominate.

7. Nominations should be titled, grammatically correct and should have been put through a spell-check.

8. Stories are to be submitted on a wiki-page. However, if you need help setting up the wiki one of us will assist you.

9. Each nomination should include the following information:
Nominee: The writer.
Story: a wiki link to the story.
Nominator: You.
Info: A detailed reason as to why you are nominating this story.


Example Nomination

Nominee: [Hedda]
Story: Hedda's Story
Nominator: The Featured Story Team
Info: Hedda's story is a fun and interesting tale of his cat, Lilo, as she battles space invaders intent on the destruction of Elftown and eventual brain control of the entire world.


Begin submissions here

Please place your nomination after the last one in the list.



While you shouldn't directly message your nomination to one of the Featured Story Bosses, you can always ask one of them for help through private message or on this page's comments.
You can also join the Featured Story Nominations forum <joinforum:2405:nightingale> (Featured Story Nominations) to discuss nominations with other members.

2009-03-09 [Duke Devlin]: Can you be vain and nominate your own? XD
Edit: Strike that, I've just looked at the forum. XD

2009-03-09 [Linderel]: It also says in the first rule that you can nominate your own xD

2009-03-09 [Chimes]: Lin beat me :P

2009-03-09 [Duke Devlin]: Oh yeah... XD I was sure I scoured those rules for it... Apparently not. :P

2009-03-09 [Chimes]: You were looking so hard that you missed it completely :P

2009-03-09 [Duke Devlin]: Damn it all.. It's true. D:

2009-03-09 [Chimes]: Don't worry, we love you. :P

2009-03-09 [Duke Devlin]: Yay! ^_____^

2009-03-09 [Triola]: Can you nominate a story by one of the Featured Story Bosses? :P

2009-03-09 [Linderel]: This was already talked about in the forum xD
You can, but we prefer other people's work over it. :P

2009-03-09 [Triola]: Fine *takes the hint and goes to join the forum* :P
And I don't care what you prefer, I'll still be nominating one of yours, thank you very much :P

2009-03-09 [Linderel]: *giggle* I do love you so much <3

2009-03-09 [Chimes]: Awwwh.

2009-03-09 [Triola]: :D *snuggle*

2009-03-09 [Linderel]: *cuddle* :3

2009-03-10 [Nocturnaliss]: Question: I don't have full short stories on Elftown, but many seperate scenes that are a part of a greater whole. They're still stories in their own respect, just... a part of more XD would it be okay to nominate one of these ? And: do I make sense ? XD

2009-03-10 [Chimes]: You make sense. :]
I'm not entirely sure because I haven't read them. Nominate one of them anyway and if we see a problem with it we'll message you. If we don't message you, assume it's fine. :P

2009-03-10 [Nocturnaliss]: All righty, I'll do so ^^ thanks.

2009-03-11 [Traumatics]: so like how do you nominate? (sorry but i did not read much...) :D

2009-03-11 [Linderel]: Quoth the page: Please, send all nominations via private message to either [Linderel] or [Chimes]. Alternatively you could join the featured story nomination forum (<joinforum:2405:nightingale> (Featured Story Nominations) (Featured Story Nominations)). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

I strongly advise you to read what the page says.

2009-03-11 [Chimes]: As do I, you're less likely to have your nomination rejected for breaking the rules that way.

2009-03-11 [SilverFire]: I wanna know how he has anything to nominate at all if he doesn't read much. :P

2009-03-11 [Chimes]: That's a good point. XD

2009-03-11 [XxTsomexX]: I think this is a really nice addition to Elftown!! :) I love to write stories, and I may be lucky enough to have one nominated!! This makes me want to write more....

2009-03-11 [Chimes]: Excellent! :D That's what we like to hear. ^^

2009-07-23 [Nioniel]: When will there be a new featured story?

2009-07-23 [Chimes]: We're trying to work out a new schedule... we need more nominations, if we keep doing it weekly we will run out... so we're having a 'reshuffle'. Please, please, please keep nominating. We would love to get it so that we can safely do it weekly.

2009-07-23 [Nioniel]: Hmmm, I'm pretty sure I nominated one a few weeks ago... I'll keep searching for you though!

2009-07-23 [Chimes]: We need LOTS of nommies :P The more you nominate the happier we will be.

2009-07-23 [Nioniel]: Okies! I do love it when you're all happy!

2009-07-24 [*OGD*]: *wiggle* Yay!

2009-08-09 [Akayume]: *stalks* >:O

2009-11-16 [shinobisoul]: i have a story i want to upload but how

2009-11-16 [Linderel]: Create a new wiki, then copy and paste your story there. :)

2010-10-23 [kittykat49783]: How do u create a wiki page??

2010-10-23 [Chimes]: There are instructions on: wiki_intro
^ It explains it a lot better than I could. :)

2010-10-23 [kittykat49783]: Thanks

2013-11-07 [perfumed ignition]: That's "grammar", hun. ;P

2014-07-22 [Tekkon KinKreet]: Nominations was empty so I wrote something to nominate. I hope it's good even if it doesn't get picked.

2014-07-22 [Stephen]: Thank you for making a nomination at that!

I haven't personally read over your nomination yet, but I'm sure it's a good read. <img:stuff/mood33-gif.gif>

2014-07-22 [Tekkon KinKreet]: Thank you. I may have a couple spelling errors. But my iPad deals with those automatically so there won't be many if any.

2014-07-22 [Tekkon KinKreet]: i have another one.. its a chaptered story but nominating myself twice would be weird to me lol.

2014-07-22 [Stephen]: You can nominate yourself more than once, that's fine. <img:44166_1164144932.gif>

2014-07-22 [Tekkon KinKreet]: eh... ill think about it. 8)

2014-08-05 [Mortified Penguin]: I nominate The Last Adventure!

2014-08-05 [Mortified Penguin]: And Till Danderfluff, I suppose.

2014-08-05 [Mortified Penguin]: Putting them on the page is a bit tedious.

2014-08-06 [Stephen]: Bah. >:(

2014-08-17 [The Black Goat]: what are the rules as far as content?

2014-08-17 [Ravendust]: Well, as something that could potentially be posted on mainstreet I think that we'd like for it to be something that ALL elftown members can read comfortably. So, for instance- explicit sexual scenes/violence might not be the greatest choice :)

2014-08-17 [The Black Goat]: Fairly sure that cuts out almost everything I write XD I wouldn't post something sexual here regardless (that is what Fake is for ;D) but there's a lot of violence and mature themes in my work

2014-08-17 [Nioniel]: [The Black Goat], if you'd like to add your stories to this page for us to read through and consider, please do. :)

Mature content isn't something that we never put out there; there are ways to do it that will inform the potential readers that what they're about to view is NSFW/Mature Content, so they can avoid it if they feel it will bother them.

2014-08-17 [Ravendust]: psst post them in the wiki page ;)

2014-08-17 [The Black Goat]: whoops, my bad XD

2014-08-17 [Nioniel]: Thanks!

2014-09-09 [The Black Goat]: Guessing it was a no go then?

2014-09-10 [Ravendust]: It got moved to another wiki ;)

2015-05-09 [Stephen]: Yeah, when your work is submitted it's moved to a secret page so the bosses can discuss it and weigh it against other submissions to figure out if/when we want to feature it. :3

2021-12-27 [Mortified Penguin]: I nominate The Last Adventure!

2021-12-27 [Sunrose]: Can't ask for permission, been offline too long ;_;
