You already have a suit, Sherlock. Pun intended :P

And come on with that name. Really? I'm not asking you to change it but the only thing I see is "hurf durf" when I read it. It's just long; I would have gone with "Awards Committee Guy NSM"

Okay rant over lol.

I actually came in here because I have a question for Ralph. Is this going to be presented in a way with our characters? If so, should I make preparations or will it be on Friday?

You don't need to do anything besides be on time and contribute.

It's a relatively simple process once you got the hang of it, although it can trip you up in nasty ways if you do it for the first time and without a proper 101.

Over the course of the next months, you guys will hold meetings on a specified time (I think it was friday or something). You don't need to prepare anything for those meetings. During the meetings you will talk about the subjects this year's awards will feature, add new awards, kick other awards out, etc. You will probably have a list of all the awards and work on them in order, one at a time, until you are through with all of them. This will take some weeks.

After everything awards-y is decided, there will be a period where everyone (including people outside of the AC) can sign-up for presentations. A presentation is something fancy that shows off the winners of an award. It can be a graphic, a short story, a comic, plain text, whatever you like (just go for something endearing). If you want to, you can include your character too. You can sign up for multiple presentations as well. If you do sign up for something, you will eventually receive a PM listing the results of the award(s) you chose. Logically, you need to include those in your presentation somehow. After that, you send a copy of your presentation to the guy in charge of the AC.

On awards day, there will be a bunch of threads, one for each award category. Presentations will be posted there by the presenters themselves. This will happen in a specific order (which you will be told about before) and with little breaks between each presentation (usually about five or ten minutes). After a presentation is posted, there will be people commenting on it (in the same thread). You may comment on other people's presentations as well. Awards day will be a very busy day, and it might become rather hectic when something screws up the planning.

At some point, a terrible catastrophe will inevitably happen and throw everything into chaos, like a riot, the end of the world, or licorice rain. That's where you will throw yourself to the ground and start asking yourself "Why did I do this to me? Why???". It will become your mantra for the next 37 years.

And there you go, Awards 101.

I read that and the link (the whole long white page, I think it said not to say TLDR) and neither really helped me understand. Still, thanks.

I approve of all of the changes made.

As for A4, I feel that it should not include Super Paper Mario for the main reason that it should honestly be included with Favorite RPG (although it is a platformer with RPG-elements, most people associate it with the Mario RPG games because it is a part of the Paper Mario-series). Therefore, it should be in A18 and be excluded from A4.

Well, SMB's vote broke the tie, though the Wiki does list it as both a platformer and RPG.  I feel it should be both, but OK.

The way we decided nominees for A5 tonight proved a point.  We don't just need to say "durr durr we have to include anything that fits under this category".  We can pick and choose what we feel are the best, and if people don't agree, they can vote for a write-in.

I think the meeting went well last night. Sometimes people were off-topic and we voting at random times but we got through 5 so that's good.

I think the focus of this year should be to avoid the disaster that I heard was last year. I think that means laying down some ground rules for presentations, like it must be a small fanfiction or image. It can be a great animated gif for all I care, but not a game. The results should be easy to see within 5 minutes of posting.

I also think there's no reason to expand anymore - it may be time to actually contract.

A19 - Favorite Upcoming Game should be modified to a 3DS topic, same purpose.

What a marvelous idea!

While you guys are at it, why don't you also add a rule that prevents you from showing up to meetings an hour late on average?

Playable games are fine.  The disaster was your and Uniju's criticism.
