Nominees Announced

Nominees for the 2010 Rock the House Awards have been announced on the site. http://thehouseisrocking.webs.com

Nominees will remain viewable throughout the voting process which begins March 1, 2010. Membership for the site will CLOSE for voting on February 28, 2010 and re-open on April 1, 2010. New members will not be accepted after that date in order to help keep a level playing field. Voting will take place at http://houseficawards.webs.com

For the next 5 days please enjoy the works our nominees have to offer before voting opens. Nominees may wish to check their placement and links, please contact me rockingthehouse@rocketmail.com with any comments, questions, and/or changes you'd like to see for your placement. I will do my best to accommodate you.

Nominees located on the FOX forum may wish to send me NEW LINKS to their stories as the FOX forum may be under going an overhaul during our voting period.

If you do not see yourself listed and you believe you should be, contact me by February 27th with your name, title of work, and category. I will look through my records. Chances are, if you're not listed, you didn't respond to the notification email.

A big 'thank you' to all of you who have nominated, we couldn't do this without you! Congratulations to all of our truly wonderful and talented nominees!

Nominations Close 1/31/2010

Just a small note to let you know that the 2010 Rock The House program will close for nominations on January 31, 2010...exact time undetermined so it's best to get your nominations on the 30th. I'm still sorting out categories, it looks as though our program will be smaller than last time around. If you'd like to see a bigger program than last time send in your nominations! :-)

The program is 'on track' so far and I don't foresee any changes in the schedule.

Happy Nominating!

Further News On The Program

I'm very happy and relieved to say that the first round of notices went out today!!! I posted here and gave a nudge in a few other places and we now have enough nominations to open the following MAIN categories:
FICTION
GEN
Greg House/Lisa Cuddy
Greg House/Allison Cameron
Greg House/James Wilson
Greg House/Original Female Character

VIDEO
Greg House-Single Character-Tribute and Humor categories
Greg House-Duet-Tribute and Humor categories (this will hopefully break down a bit further by pairing)

Many heart felt thanks to those who answered our call! We appreciate it to no end!

We have no idea how large the program will be this time around but we should have something to offer come spring. Nominations may stay open longer than originally planned still not sure about that. Please keep sending in nominations for your favorites.

Warmest Regards,
WR

News on the program

UPDATE--DECEMBER 7, 2009--Last time we notified nominees as we went along as the amount of nominations warranted such. We haven't done that yet this time because we are not receiving as many nominations as we had hoped for in this year's program. Indeed, at this point, only 3 or 4 categories can open. Nominations will remain open until January 31, 2010 as planned. At that time, depending on number of nominations, we will make a decision whether or not to go forward as planned or to extend the nominations period throughout the spring of 2010 while we are away or to close this program altogether.

We can only give you what you give us. If the community doesn't support the program then we have nothing to offer when the voting round comes along. We're very sorry to anyone who may be disappointed with this result.

The best (and only) way to change it is to nominated! http://thehouseisrocking.webs.com

Send In Your Nominations

Nominations are now OPEN for the 2010 Rock The House Awards Program and will remain open until January 31, 2010. We are taking nominations for any and all House, MD inspired and fan created works of Art, Fiction, Videos and Web Sites. A few of our Rules & Guidelines have changed, we hope they're clearer this time around.

Membership is NO LONGER required for nominating, but as with last year, it will be required to vote.

Please note that due to some objections from the fandom to the word 'slash', we have gotten rid of the 'slash' category per say. All stories containing a sexual/romantic 'relationship' no matter the orientation will be listed in the Relationship Based Category. All pairings will be separated just as they were last year. 'Slash' based works are still very welcome in the competition.

The more nominations we receive the more categories we can open in the spring. Please, start sending in those nominations and pass the word along regarding the program to your friends and anyone you feel may be interested in taking part. We need your help so that we can Rock the House!

2010 Rock The House Awards Nominations OPEN

Misty and I are planning an extended trip to visit with family and friends...and show off Elan! He's just the light of my life!!!! 

In light of that, we have opened nominations one month early. The 2010 schedule has changed drastically, nominations will close on January 31, 2010. As with last year, Membership is required for those who wish to nominate and vote. If you are already registered with the site just sign in and start nominating.  Please see our updated Rules & Guidelines before nominating as we have several changes this time around.

We hope to have a larger program this time around but, of course, that will all depend on the fans. The more nominations we receive the more categories we can open and the more House, MD works we can bring together.

Please see our site for all of the details.  thehouseisrocking.webs.com

Getting Ready for 2010

I've been very busy lately getting ready for the arrival of our son--Elan-- some time within the next two weeks or so.  The doctor pinpointed 9/18 as the due date, just a few days before the House, MD season opener. Misty says if she delivers on the 21st we have to name our son Elan Gregory!

I don't care what his name is so long as he's happy and healthy and Misty comes through it all just fine. I'm so nervous and excited I can't even begin to describe how I feel.  I just hope that I have what it takes to be a good parent I know Misty is going to be a fantastic mother. Let's hope she balances me out, hey?

I wanted to get a lot of things off my plate before Elan arrives so I've done a lot of work on the site to get ready for the 2010 program. Please note that our home page has changed. The NEW HOME PAGE is located at thehouseisrocking.webs.com  You might want to bookmark it for future visits. There will be two sections of the site once we open in November; Open to the Public and Members Only. The Members Only section will be housed on the 'old' site houseficawards.webs.com so no one will have to rejoin.  All nominating and voting will take place there.

The server only allows us 20 pages per site for a total of 40 so the Winners and Nominees Pages have been consolidated and are now located at thehouseisrocking.webs.com/2009archive.htm  Winner's banners are still where they were BUT the page will be removed (or otherwise consolidated with the existing archive page) when nominations open so if you haven't picked up your banner already please do so in the near future.

You might want to go over and take a look at the new Rules & Guidelines. The page is a bit longer than it was but I wanted to make sure that the spirit of the program isn't violated. You'll notice a few new changes in categories for 2010.  thehouseisrocking.webs.com/rulesguidelines.htm  

Nominations forms are uploaded and almost ready to go whenever we are come November.

I'll do some more work on it over the next little while but once Elan arrives I plan to do nothing but dote on him and my Misty for a month or two.  If you don't hear from us between now and when nominations open....we wish everyone a lovely end of summer and a joyous fall.

Hope to see you in November!

Nervously awaiting our son's arrival,
WR
