No idea what kind of awards site you're thinking of but I say go for it...as long as you're prepared for the work of getting one started...and I'm happy to help however I can if you need it.
my monkied brain: xander - darksmilekatekat1010 on February 11th, 2008 04:16 am (UTC)
Thank you sweet lady! It's the germ of a baby thought that's been floating around for a half a year or so, so we'll see if i decide to get serious or not. And if so, I will take this as the kindest invitation to pestering ever. :D

I couldn't decide what kind of award works better so I didn't vote (tick) that part.
