Doers of darkness, nominations for Kaleidoscope 2012 are now closed! So far we have approved 155 fandoms and 758 characters (not including the 25 fandoms and 136 characters we are still processing). We will be generating a list of nominated fandoms, characters, and people for your review shortly.

While our mod team has done its best to look up fandom and character names in their original languages, there are several cases where we would like to verify those names as we do not read/write the languages in question and information was not available. We'd like to draw on the multilingual expertise of this community to ask for help. Our goal is to include name in the original source language and a romanized version of the name when possible and we would appreciate your help!

Fandom and character names needing verification and information )

We also welcome clarifications and corrections on how the names and titles in the Kaleidoscope 2012 Nominations list are transcribed and transliterated from the original source language via comments, email (darkadmn [at] gmail [dot] com) or PM.

Once we've finished processing nominations, our disputes period will begin on August 27 (countdown clock), so stay tuned! We'll once again need your help with clarifications and corrections on fandom and character eligibility in order to finalize the nominations list.

Thank you again to everyone who promoted our challenge! Happy International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition!
