I wish there was some standard genre thing out there somewhere. In the 90s people gave up on music genres and called everything "Alternative"

I think Senshuu is right!

I'm for this on a general basis... when/if it is approved, I'd push for a limited number of categories, probably something below 10. I think the unlimited category field is a bad idea, just due to the fact that arguably every comic could eventually narrow itself down to such a small sub-sub-subset of categories that we'd have to give everyone an award.

An idea does occur to me - since this is the TWCL Award... we could always use the genre categories TWCL uses to define what awards we give. We might want to remove/combine a couple of them... but it's still a starting point. They (for those who don't venture much off the forum) are:

Fantasy, Furry, Gaming, Geeky, Manga, Mature, Quirky, Sci-Fi, Weird, Workplace, Genre-less

I know that this isn't the time or place to debate *which* categories we do, I'm just throwing this out as a possible comprimise as an idea for those deciding on whether they're for this or not.

I do feel that this would be most unmanageable and if one were to have this genre divided system, how many and what ones?

I mean, if we have too many the whole idea becomes a unmanageable and if we have to little, you will have someone arguing that they have been left out.

On the other hand, this being what it is, there is certain to be someone who feels they've been left out anyway.

True, but I think with the addition of some genre categories more people will feel left in. As a suggested rule (however many genres, if any, are decided on), you could say that a given comic cannot be eligible in two genre categories. Someone has to pick one or the other.
