Why? Because you say so?
Because we have an issue on the table that needs to be addressed. We have two categories nominated for a second time. That's like you nominating a book and then someone else nominating the same book because it's in an omnibus edition.

We need an official ruling as to the invalidity of nominating categories for a second time in the same poll.
I'm not sure what you mean? If someone nominates a category that's already been nominated, wouldn't it be a second (or third)?

But it was. I nominated both Science Fiction and Fantasy and Sun Sufer came along and nominated them as well. He nominated Science Fiction/Fantasy which isn't valid because both were already taken. So Sun's nomination needs to go as it's not valid to nominate the same thing more then once.

I'll nominate Mystery/Thriller. I'm on a Mystery/Thriller kick lately. And July is a good month to sit on the beach and read a good Mystery/Thriller. Unless your in a cold climate. How about every other month we have Mystery/Thriller?

I'm not sure I follow you. "Science Fiction" is different then "Fantasy" which is different then "Science Fiction and Fantasy".

Science Fiction and Fantasy are different. They don't belong together. Not many Science Fiction or Fantasy books overlap.

No Sun Surfer nominated a category of Science Fiction or Fantasy. That would allow books from either category (which very much overlap) to be nominated.

Mystery/Thriller already won for last month. The good thing is that you get your nomination back.

Repeats of certain categories/genres should be considered.

But we have not considered Mystery/Thriller for duplication yet.

And we haven't excluded it from potential duplication either. If people don't want it, it won't be choosen. If it does get fully nominated and win a subsequent poll people want it. It's really very easy!

With all the recent discussions on MR around this author, I nominate Novels of Robert Heinlein (can I do that?).

Sounds like a reasonable category to me, but I am out of votes for the nomination period.
