Mario Awards XIII / Art Contest -- Submissions due by July 13th
« on: April 30, 2019, 07:36:56 PM »

According to an arcane source of mystical divination arts, our three themes of this Art Contest have been selected!

Handcrafted   *   Luigi has a strange encounter at the grocery store   *   A moment of contemplation

Info and rules:
*One (1) entry per individual.
*Winners will be selected with a public vote using Polldaddy Crowdsignal polls linked both here and in The 'Shroom.
*The theme of your piece must be of at least one of the three above.  A focus on the Marioverse or this community is preferred.
-If you can't decide and want to make something that fits multiple themes, go for it!
-You are free to interpret any of the themes as you wish!
*All kinds of art will be accepted (Drawings both computer and traditional, short comics, sculptures, photos, etc.), but please keep the final image static and non-moving!  This is to help keep this small contest more fair and balanced.
*Awards will be given for multiple things, with the list being finalized once all submissions are in.  Some of those may include:
-Best in Show
-Best Interpretation of Theme
-Most Creative
-Best Concept
-Funniest Entry
-Most Improved

Please send all submissions to me starting June 1st - July 13th, whether it's my inbox here, or query on chat, so long as it's private.  There is no need to sign up, but if I am at least aware that you are interested and plan in sending something in, the deadline can be extended up until July 19th for you as I'd already know to be expecting it.

Voting will take place July 20th - August 10th, and polls will be located both within this thread and in a special 'Shroom section in July's issue.

Please don't post entries within this thread!!

Sign-ups aren't necessary but expressing your interest will help me see how many people there will be and create a balanced contest.  It is currently undecided whether we will stick with using the three skill tiers we've used in the last few years, as those combined with the separate themes may be too much delineation, but this is all dependent on what we receive in total for submissions.  If you would like to include with your submission what you believe your skill tier is (beginner, amateur, or experienced), it would be helpful to organize submissions should there be enough to warrant the separation.

Spoiler: skill tier info (click to show/hide)

Ultimately, fairness and fun is the goal here!!

If there are any questions, comments, concerns, including ideas for possible awards or changes to the rules please post them in this thread.

Check out last year's contest and results!

Mario Awards XIII / Tournaments
« on: March 01, 2019, 04:24:07 PM »
Plans, ideas, general discussion re: tournaments  :waluigi:

Please send Anton and/or Turb your ideas for a tournament you plan on hosting, including a draft of your OP so we can check over final details with you in PM!

Do note that this year we will be discussing the removal of the token and prize system as it currently exists!  Should you have any opinion on it, you are welcome to join the Awards Committee, attend meetings, or otherwise make your opinion known!

Mario Awards XIII / Suggestion Box
« on: March 01, 2019, 04:20:59 PM »
Here's where to suggest any ideas for awards, nominees, tournaments, etc. Basically if you have an idea and it has anything to do with the awards ceremony or related processes, feel free to post it and we'll have a look at it and consider it and all that good stuff :bowser:

Mario Awards XIII / AC Application
« on: March 01, 2019, 04:17:22 PM »
Below are the details for signing up for this year's awards committee.  Please use this topic to ask questions or make comments, or PM either me and/or Turb.

We are looking for 10-15 focused, hard-working community members to join the 2019 MarioWiki Awards Ceremony Committee. The Awards Committee’s main focus is the creation of the polls in June, but they will be responsible for decisions related to the entire anniversary event, including but not limited to tournaments, prizes, presentations, and overall AC policies and structure.

Meetings will begin Friday, March 29th 8:00pm-10:00pm EDT, and are held in #mwikiawards on Darkmyst (  Do note that European Daylight Savings begins on March 31st, so the first couple of meetings will shift for those east of the Atlantic. If you don’t already know how to join that channel, click this link, enter your name, and then type “/join #mwikiawards”. Following meetings will alternate Friday/Saturday nights with care to avoid ‘Shroom meetings, deadlines, and other potential conflicts, and are subject to change to accommodate. An exact schedule will be posted once it is determined and will be available in both the public and staff Awards boards on the forum.

There are a few minimal requirements to be an AC member this year:
*You must be a forum member. We will be utilizing an underground forum to discuss topics in more detail and keep track of progress.
*You must be active and in good standing with the community; applicants will be screened by Awards staff and past AC members. You must exercise basic judgment and common sense to be allowed on the committee. Committee members represent the Super Mario Wiki, so we expect a basic level of maturity, intelligence and kindness towards others.
*You should at least try to attend meetings/vote in them, but if you are unable to attend meetings due to time conflicts or time zone differences please be sure to still post in the board regularly and keep updated. With a smaller AC we are hoping to have a tighter group of continually active members.
*You are expected to vote/voice abstention in staff board polls, as well as participate in discussion, in a timely manner.

While it is not a formal requirement, if you sign up for the AC please be willing to do at least one presentation. Only confirmed AC members will be given a vote in meetings but meetings are open to the public, so you can drop in even if you aren't a committee member! We do value what everyone has to say, including non-AC members, so even without a formal vote your voice will surely count and your ideas will be sincerely considered.

To sign up, send a PM to Anton and/or Turb letting them know that you are interested in joining the committee, including details such as:
*A brief explanation why you want to join the AC and why you'd be a good fit.
*Any potential scheduling conflicts. This likely will not work against you but is just to figure out scheduling (i.e. can't make Friday meetings, live in a time zone that's outside the US, etc.)
*Ideas or suggestions you may have.

The application doesn’t have to be anything fancy; we just want to be sure that you’re committed more to working as a team than you are getting purple stars. In fact, most people who apply are accepted, and this process is just a precautionary screening for intent and seriousness. Applications are due by the end of March 15th Midnight EDT. Anton and Turb will post the final AC member list by March 22nd and will provide staff board access shortly afterwards.

The Awards Committee is the only thing you can sign up for at the moment. Depending on its decisions over the next few months, other projects will emerge in June, and you will be able to sign up for them as well. Announcements regarding these projects will be posted on this page or the public forum board, so if you are interested, keep an eye on at least one of them.

Thank you, and we'll see you around a bunch more in the upcoming months!!

2018 / Suggestions for next year
« on: August 17, 2018, 09:31:34 PM »
In a continuous effort to improve, please tell us things that could be changed, or new ideas, new awards, nominees, what worked, what didn't work, anything, we will look over everything posted in here.

I'll start:

*Fix poll sorter so "Game" isn't used in every table for things that aren't games; Nominee? Entry?
*M8 Retro/Modern 2D Promotional Artwork style?
*Switch F11 Biggest Missed Opportunity into something like Biggest Disappointment so the write-ins can be more open and valid, or just remove it entirely?
*Change up F9 Worst Direction of Series because it's becoming too nuanced for an award that forces generalization?
*Merge Tanooki Suit and Super Leaf (3D games)?
*M10 Favorite Song - Allow instrumental songs? Clarify name? New award to replace Sound Design?

Also general reminder to everyone that while we do our best to prevent it, typos and mistakes happen.  I like to look at how we've moved from having errors such as how entire results would be incorrect in the results list, numbers wouldn't add up, things in the wrong place, duplicate entries that weren't merged, things that don't exist, etc., and instead have moved to maybe a grand total of 3 typos that were just one missing letter or something not capitalized when it should be or vice versa.  There's not really much that can be done to prevent human error beyond evolving to mechanisms immune to fatigue, so let's keep it focused on things we can change. :)

2018 / Super Mario Odyssey Scavenger Hunt - All done!
« on: August 03, 2018, 03:13:38 PM »
Super Mario Odyssey Scavenger Hunt

General Info:

  • No sign-up required!  You will automatically be added to the player list by participating.
  • Below is a list of objectives, with clues ranging from words, phrases, riddles, references, puns, whichever. Your job for each objective is to provide a picture from the world of Super Mario Odyssey that you believe fits the clue. The correct answer is usually a combination of several elements, like a specific location, a pose or action, a particular enemy or npc, or a costume.
  • Objectives that require the inclusion of a specific costume will be marked with an asterisk symbol (*)
  • While we have a definite answer for every objective in mind, it is possible you might find an answer that fits the clues provided in a different way. Such answers may also receive points depending on how well they fit, so don’t be afraid to get creative!
  • To complete the full scavenger hunt you will require to have access to all Kingdoms. However, we will not bar you from participating if you don't meet these requirements. Feel free to answer as many objectives as you can.

This game will be divided into two phases, each spanning 10 days.

- Phase One - August 10th - 19th
August 10, 2018, 04:00:00 PM - August 19, 2018, 04:00:00 PM

- Phase Two - August 21st - 30th
August 21, 2018, 04:00:00 PM - August 30, 2018, 04:00:00 PM

At the beginning of phase 1, a list of objectives will be released that each require a certain picture to be taken, as well as a clue for each of them. The objectives are divided by Kingdom and each have a label associated with them (like "Cascade A", "Sand D", "Lost F", etc). Please use this numbering system when submitting your guesses.

Once you have taken your pictures, please privately send them to us. We ask you to use the forum’s PM system to do this, though the content of said message is up to you. You may post your pictures as links into the message directly, or link to a google document or imgur gallery, or whatever else you find convenient. Please don’t put your pictures into IMG tags though, as that will flood our inboxes with pictures.

Once phase 2 arrives, an additional clue will be released for each objective. These are hints that further specify the pictures you need to take. If you have not submitted a correct guess in phase 1, you will get a new chance here by putting the clues from phase 1 and phase 2 together and figure out the picture that is needed. If you already guessed correctly in phase 1, you will be informed of that at this time.

At the end of phase 2, we evaluate all guesses and tally your points. Points are awarded based on the number of correct guesses, during which phase a guess was submitted, and various other factors (see "Tokens" for more info). Points will be used to determine a ranking, and tokens will be paid out according to that ranking.

Please note that you can only send one picture per objective during each phase. The first picture you send counts. If you feel that you’ve made a mistake, you get one do-over per objective (spanning both phases of the game, so if you use your do-over in phase 1, you can’t use it again in phase 2). If you use the do-over, we will ignore the first picture you sent and you can send a different one. Note that if your erased picture was the correct answer, you will NOT get partial points for it.

Please send your guesses to Anton, Edo, and 2257.

*All images must be your own!  If we find out that you are using someone else’s images, some of your guesses may be voided, or, depending on the scale of this infraction, you may be disqualified outright.


Players compete for points, which at the end of the game will be used to construct a leaderboard. Tokens will be paid out according to your rank on said leaderboard, NOT your number of points. You will receive the same amount of tokens, whether you reach first place with a margin of 3000 or a margin of 3. This also means leaking your correct guesses to others will potentially hurt your rank and put you at a disadvantage.

Point system (per objective):

Phase 1:
Correct guess:
Partially correct guess:     
First correct guess:       

Phase 2:
Correct guess:
Partially correct guess:

Exclusivity bonus:
Didn’t use do-over:

200 points
150 points
50 points

100 points
75 points

100 / # of correct answers
10 points

For the first correct guess bonus, we will update the list below to keep a live reflection of whether a clue has already been guessed.

The more people who play, the bigger the pot will be, and the more tokens you could possibly earn!

How to get your images off your Switch:

*Publish to Facebook
-As long as you can make them private, then just provide us with the direct image URLs, or transfer them from Facebook to Imgur

*Publish to Twitter
-As long as you can make them private, then just provide us with the direct image URLs, or transfer them from Facebook to Imgur

-Using this, you will need to then upload the images to an image sharing service, such as Imgur, to then provide us with links to see them

*Phone or Camera
-Similar to the microSD method, but is handy if you don’t have a microSD slot, SD card slot, or microSD to SD adapter.  Just take as best of a photo of your Switch screen as you can and then transfer your images to your PC via a USB cable, microSD, SD, or upload directly to an image sharing service like Imgur if you’re using a smartphone

For more detailed information, here’s a good article that explains more!


The list of objectives might look something like this:

Sand Kingdom

Sand A - (Clue 1: "Siesta")
Sand B - (Clue 1: "Hit-and-Run")
Sand C (...)

Your answer might then be this:

Sand Kingdom

Sand A:
Sand B:
Sand C (...)

Do note that the Kingdom name and objective identifier are both included!

If there are absolutely any questions, comments, needs for explanation, compliments, credit card info, anything, please feel free to ask us here in this thread, or PM us if it must be private!

2018 / Prizes -- Closed
« on: July 20, 2018, 03:48:02 PM »
Prize order + token list
Item Limits:
-You are allowed to pick 1 big prize and 1 small prize, or 0 big prizes and up to 2 small prizes, with small prizes being TF2 items, low-cost dlc, emoticons, and trading card sets, and big prizes being everything else (digital games, shop points, OW boxes).  Exceptions may be granted in specific circumstances.  Edit: There are currently no small prizes so the process is simply 1 prize selection per turn!
-Buying two of the same item is not allowed.

Your Steam storage contacts are The Mushroom Vault, a shared account used by awards staff to distribute prizes, and PsychoKamek.  Otherwise, all other prizes/codes are stored by Anton or by the donor.
Everyone will have 24 12 hours after the last person has selected their prize(s) to choose their own until they are skipped.  After everyone takes their turn once, the list will start again from the beginning until all prizes or tokens are exhausted, or everyone is done.
*While we may contact people individually, we are not responsible for doing so.  If you miss your turn and are skipped, you must wait until the next cycle.
*Obvious inactive people will either be skipped entirely or given less time; this will be taken as it goes.  This is so it doesn't take 6 years to get through the list.
      **If you've been assumed inactive and skipped, but show up at some point, we may decide to let you go next.
*People are not allowed to officially reserve prizes for themselves, but some may allow it as a courtesy.  No one is bound to this.
      **If you know you're going to be away/inactive during the time you would be selecting a prize, you can provide a few options for us to select on your behalf and we'll do our best to accommodate.
*If you know your turn is next, but Anton or Turb haven't announced who's next yet (by factor of them not being online at the moment, etc.), feel free to post your selection and continue onward with the list for when we can get back to address them.
*It's possible during the course of distribution that some prizes may become unavailable, or more prizes will be added.  We will do our best to make these changes as fair as possible.

*You do not have to have voted to participate. You can also participate if you are presenting award(s), see farther down. You also don't have to attend the ceremonies, as we will calculate all of the results of this beforehand.

*You can do Mario, Fail, and/or Community, any single one, combo of two, or all three. There will be four achievements - highest score in each one, and highest combined total (must do all three to qualify for this one, of course).

*You will have a chance to gain up to 15 points per award by guessing the Top 3 (gold, silver, bronze) nominees. Therefore, the max score is 450 for Mario, 225 for Fail, 225 for Community, and 900 total (the chances of acing any set is very low). You can get full credit for getting a nominee in the right spot, partial credit for getting a nominee that is in the Top 3 but in the wrong spot, or no credit for picking a nominee not in the Top 3 at all:
--Gold Exacta: 5 points
--Silver Exacta: 3 points
--Bronze Exacta: 2 points
--Any Spot: 1 point
--Miss: 0 points
--Trifecta (triple exacta): +5 points, therefore 5 + 3 + 2 + 5 = 15.

*I'll post an example so the meaning is clear, as well as show some intricacies so you can strategize. If the Top 3 of award M9001 is A, B, and C, then:
--C, B, D: C is in the top 3, but it is put as gold instead of bronze: 1 point. B is an exacta 3 points, D is nowhere to be found, 0 points. Total: 4
--C, D, A: Two spots are mixed up, but they still only count as 1 point each. Total: 2
--A, E, F: Salvaging gold can make a mess a decent amount. Total: 5
--C, E, F: You don't want to do this. Total: 1
--D, B, C: As close to a trifecta as this is, that miss is 0 instead of what would have been 5+5 points. Total: 5
--C, A, B: Getting the right three nominees isn't enough if they're all mixed up. Total: 3
--B, A, C: Again, this is pretty close to a trifecta, but... Total: 4
--As you should see, putting a gold in the wrong spot costs you more points (4) than a bronze (1), and that a trifecta is appropriately hard to earn and fairly easy to give up.

Here is the full list.  If you submit a red nominee, you didn't read the document.

*For any award you are presenting, you will receive a free 5 points.  If you are presenting an award you can finalize your votes before you get the results (around July 17th-19th) to guarantee your gamble instead of the automatic 5 points.  Do not guess the results of an award after you have received the results for it.  We know you are cheating.

*Submit your entries here - you are free to edit them until right before the ceremonies begin. Look at other people's submissions if you want, but second-guessing has just as great a chance to add to your points as much as subtracting them! Keeping each award to one line would be appreciated, just putting "A#: A, B, C" will be read as gold, silver, bronze across the line.

*Please do not spam ceremony topics with announcements of your GTR score. Such posts will be removed.

The rules are simple: post a picture that represents how you are feeling right now.  It can be a vibe, it can be what you're doing, it can be whatever speaks of your essence.  No words, no explanation, the more abstract the better.  Images with words may be allowed so long as they're not literal, but they're on thin ice.

Update: I've broken the rules.  Hyperspecific explanations using an obscure image is ok.  Words are now allowed, the 1st Amendment is alive and well.

I'll start.

2018 / Art Contest -- Results up!
« on: May 26, 2018, 08:19:25 PM »
"Making good wine is a skill; making fine wine is an art."
-Robert Mondavi


*One (1) entry per individual.
*Winners will be selected with a public vote using Polldaddy polls linked both here and in The 'Shroom
*The topic is very general; Mario- and community-themed works
*All kinds of art will be accepted (Drawings both computer and traditional, short comics, gifs, photos, short videos, songs, anything that's art)
*Tokens will be awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each skill category, as well as for general participation.

Please send all submissions to me starting June 1st - July 14th, whether it's my inbox here, or query on chat, so long as it's private.  If you are signed up, the deadline can be extended up until July 20th for you as I'd already know to be expecting it.

Voting will take place July 21st - August 11th, and polls will be located both within this thread and in a special 'Shroom section in July's issue.

Please don't post entries within this thread!!

Sign-ups aren't necessary but they really help see how many people there will be and create a balanced contest.  There will be 3 skill tiers with separate votes (beginner, amateur, and experienced) so if you sign up please select which one you feel you fit into.  If one tier ends up barren while another is overpopulated I may use Director's discretion and move people around, but I will certainly try to avoid this as much as possible.  Also, people who do not provide a tier to be placed into will automatically go into amateur until otherwise proven or stated, and people are also free to change their position.

If there are any questions, comments, concerns, please post them in this thread.  If you think there's a better way to run this contest than how I did it last year, please tell me!

Check out last year's contest and results!

Hey everyone click this and share songs that you think are cool

In the top left you can toggle on/off Slow, Fast, and Weird.  Then just click a decade and a country and a song will play for you!  There's some other features, but I haven't messed around with those yet.

New year, new nominees, so check out last years' presentations where I've painstakingly linked to every single presentation for easy reference.

Just go and lob every single presentation that you liked and feel should be included in this award, and at a later date I'll compile them all into a giant poll to select 15-18 from.

Awards Staff / M28 Favorite Game Setting

Quote from: Current nominees
Favorite Game Setting (Mushroom Kingdom (SMB), Mushroom Kingdom (PM), Super Mario RPG World, Dinosaur Land, Yoshi's Island, Isle Delfino, Beanbean Kingdom, Rogueport & surrounding areas, Flipside & Flopside, Bowser's Castle, Sarasaland, Donkey Kong Island, Sprixie Kingdom, Comet Observatory & Galaxies, Pi'illo Island, Prism Island)

M28 - Favorite Game Setting - The game with the best setting overall. Focus is placed on the entirety of the setting as a whole, rather than just individual areas.

This thread is being made because it's a bit confusing/difficult figuring out how to add Super Mario Odyssey stuff to M28.  To be consistent with nominees already in this award, the entire game should be added as one entity, but there's also a feeling that each Kingdom has a unique enough feel.

There's several ways we can approach this, including a complete rework, redefinition, rephrasing nominees, simply double checking if the nominees we have are all valid with the definition, or just doing nothing.
