• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The Nebula Awards are yearly awards given out for works of Science Fiction and Fantasy by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SWFA), begining in 1965. Unlike the Hugo Award, its equally-famous counterpart, the Nebula is only given for written works and not film or TV, although "Best Script" was added to the list in 2000 which covers them somewhat.

There are also several special Nebulas:

  • Author Emeritus - for authors with contributions to the field
  • Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award - for lifetime achievement (Damon Knight was a SFWA founder)
  • Bradbury Award - for excellence in screenwriting
  • Service to SFWA Award
  • Andre Norton Award - for Young Adult works
  • Solstice Award - to honor individuals (not necessarily writers) for significant contributions to the field
