Just did a scan of the lists @ First post, thanks for those, Hinagiku & Nagi being auto-qualified. Yay.
Maria is in Stella, meh. Isn't Isumi from the same series in the same boat as her though? I might have missed her, but I don't think I saw her name in there.
Still voting for Ayumu, despite her apparently being thrown into the background in the latest season (she had a key part in the set-up of the 3rd episode plot, which was entirely discarded :()
You can nominate 8 from Nova and 6 from Stella
Are the nominations locked as to how we vote?

Isumi made it to regular season only once, thus she is ineligible to be in Stella.

Yes. There will be 8 slots which can only be used for Nova nomination and separate 6 slots for Stella nominations.

Nova yet to be decided aside from a few locks...

but since the Stella field is so limited...current plans:
1. Kamio Misuzu (Air TV)
2. Kawasumi Mai (Kanon)
3. Kinomoto Sakura (Cardcaptors)
4. Euucliwood Hellscythe (KoreZom)
5. Victorique de Blois (GoSick)
6. Aruru

PS: I think there is a just a tad too many Stella nomination spots available in relation to it's limited field. Only 3 of those girls would I had considered for nominations had we used the old format. (since the rest of the Stellars already all already AQ'd)

Ayumu made it into regular season only once, and she's in the 'eligible to be in Stella' list, same years for both if I'm remembering correctly.

Yes only one but all those who made it in 2008 and 2009 are eligible in Stella even if they only appeared once.

So six stella girls huh?
It took a while to go through the list. I'm really glad I recently watched Cardcaptor Sakura.
It was hard weighing princess Sakura against Shiori and Suiseiseki. It would have been harder having to do more weighing.
But here it is.
1. Misuzu Kamio
2. Ayu Tsukimiya
3. Sakura Kinomoto
4. Sayuri Kurata
5. Kanade Tachibana
6. Sakura
(You know I feel a bit weird nominating two girls from the same series... meh.)

As for Nova of course I'm going to be voting Sumomo, Yako and Elis but the other 5...
Maybe Sakura from Tsuritama and Moe from Poyopoyo? I did suggest them in the exhibition threads... I also suggested Kikijima though so maybe I should vote for her too.

(Watches as the 2011 strong characters suck up all nominations)

Nova:
Miniwa Tsumiki (Acchi Kocchi) (In terms of pure moe-ness I don't think she can be surpassed by anyone)
Shiina Mayuri (Steins;Gate) (Although I don't think she makes the best couple with the main character, she's still my most favourite in the series)
Shiomiya Shiori (The World God Only Knows) (See above)
Amano Touko (Bungaku Shoujo) (I don't care if nobody watches her series. She's a great character from the best light novel series I have read.)
Hanato Kobato (Kobato.) (Again, I don't care if she's actually an old character and nobody knows about her.)
Watashi (Jinrui wa Suitaishimashita) (Wittiest gal in 2012)
Mizutani Shizuku (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) (Her motions are oddly endearing)
Aoyama Nanami (Sakura-sou no pet na kanojo) (She's an inspiring character in an inspiring series)

Stella
Gokou Ruri (OreImo) (My most favourite character period)
Tachibana Kanade (Angel Beats) (Like Hina, she's one of the first few great characters I've known, and although I've seen better characters since then she still has a place in my heart)
Yuno (Hidamari Sketch) (She gets a new anime this season, and I really like her too)
Minami Chiaki (Minami-ke) (See above, except chance "this season" to "next January")
Kawazoe Tamaki (Bamboo Blade) (She manages to combine several moe traits into a mishmash of awesomeness. Too bad probably no one will know her by now.)
Kawashima Ami (Toradora) (She's a very complex character, and for that I love her)

Are we allow to nominate characters from anime that were aired years ago but are not in the "Stella Eligible" list? Because after seeing Yagami Taichi's name in the male tournament wildcard list it reminded me of all the fun time I had in my childhood watching Digimon which gave me the urge to nominate his little sister (Yagami Hikari) even though I knew the chance of her getting in is below 1%.

And is there a limit on how many characters we allow to nominate from each anime?

for Stella Auto-Qualified,
I personally think the strength should much more dominant (and useful) than participating years.
It is no point in seeing Fate Testarossa scoring zero win in next regular season.

Necklace holders and postseason participants should be auto qualified.

Yes, you can nominate characters from Digimon series for Nova division.

As for same series limit, the number isn't finalized yet, but it is likely that we will request you to nominate from at least 2 different series for Nova and also at least 2 different series for Stella.

It's giving the more experienced characters some kind of "benefit" for next year. They still have to go through Preliminary rounds though so that's the least you can do for seasoned veterans and regulars. Experience matters and Fate Testarossa is just one of those girls who has had success in her ISML career so far. 4 years and 158 wins, only a handful could match or even top that. We all know since she won the very first tiara so that even justifies her reason to be auto qualified. If you can get by at least 3 years in the regular season, I think that's an achievement not everyone can do. I'm happy not having to nominate regulars like Tomoyo, Holo, Fate, Nanoha, Rika and Tsukasa whose strength has dropped over the years.

All we have to by January 1st is to nominate either someone who finished their 2 years in Nova or someone from the 2008 - 2009 batch who appeared once or twice n the regular season so almost no one gets left behind.

I think auto-qualifying runners-up (Chitanda Eru and Araragi Tsukihi) is not a good idea.
Araragi Karen met Ririchiyo on the semifinal day, so she couldn't go for the final match.
If she met Misaki Mei instead of Ririchiyo, maybe she could win, and could meet Ririchiyo (or her sister) at the final match.

Then... Can we say auto-qualifying Tsukihi, not Karen, is a wise choice?
My answer is "no".

My answer is "no".
I'm afraid your line of reasoning would lead to endless cases of what-ifs. The popularity and the "merit" of runner-up is always debatable, but then, due to seasonal format, are we sure the winner Ririchiyo is more deserving than runner up from Spring side, Chitanda Eru ? At some line, we must draw a compromise, and we based our decision more on the numbers instead of looking at who were the runner ups. To elaborate more, based on past nomination and prelim results, we felt that we do need to admit some from seasonal tournament, since it was very likely that all 4 * 2 = 8 of the SEMI-finalists in the seasonal tournaments were the ones likely to grab very high percentage of nominations and do well in the prelim. Since there will be 4 seasonal tournaments, admitting all 16 seemed too much, as some of those 16 will do poorly purely by random chance. Admitting only the 4 winners would raise the question of one of the season being stronger than the other, and also that taking only the 4 would not sufficiently address the problem of strong characters "eating up" valuable nomination slots that can be used to better discern the popularity of characters on the "bubble" of nomination and prelim phase. 8 was deemed the best compromise between diverse reasons, thus the acceptance of runner-up of the seasonal tournament. We will continue to gather input about this issue and make necessary adjustment if needed.

Although I agree with wizard about the issue of accepting the runners-up, I do understand the decision that Maglor (and I'm guessing the rest of the mods) finally decided on.
Maybe a second 'seasonal' tournament could be held to determine eligibility, or maybe something about the number of VF needs to be used in determining the auto-qualifiers. I hope this is still a work-in-progress, and will continue to be refined as time goes on.

It sounds like this is going to be an issue that everyone is still thinking on, which is always a good thing.
