- No nominating yourself.
If a user is caught nominating themselves, that user will have their right to be nominated for that month taken away. If that user gets three strikes, by getting caught nominating themselves three times, their right to be nominated will be taken away for a period of six award ceremonies.
- Anonymous Users cannot be nominated.
This is not because of a prejudice against anons, it's because of the fact that they will not be able to receive the award template that should be placed on their user page.
- No Supporting yourself.
This is simply because you earn the awards from other users, not yourself. If a user is caught logging out, then supporting themselves, the nomination will be forfeit, and that user will be ineligible of being nominated for the month. If that user gets three strikes, by getting caught supporting themselves three times, their right to be nominated will be taken away for a period of six award ceremonies.
- No Supporting your nomination.
This is because when you nominate someone, that nomination is considered a supportive gesture. The User needs to be nominated, then get three separate supports.
- No Slander
If you and the nominated user have a problem with one another, please don't bring it into the awards. Simply be nice.
- No Replying to a closed nomination.
When a nomination is closed with the "done" or "not done" template, please don't continue to reply. That nominee can post one reply, thanking his supporters.
