As mentioned yesterday, the following 6 UK soap operas have already qualified for the finals of the World Cup: Coronation Street, Brookside, EastEnders, Emmerdale, Crossroads and Hollyoaks. Now we need to select the final 6 UK soaps to qualify. The qualification process will be similar to Ome's "Members' Chosen Theme" thread. Forum members are each asked to nominate up to three UK soap operas that they would like to see competing in the finals of The World Cup of Soap Operas. Once the nominations have been completed, I will collate them and post the final list for everyone to vote for the shows they would like to go through. Nominations are now open for you to suggest 1, 2 or 3 UK soap operas you would like to be part of the qualifying vote. Any UK soap opera is eligible, past or present. You may give reasons for you nominations if you like but this is entirely optional. Nominations will close at midnight Monday 1st July.
