I don't think it will be a problem adding more awards. More users come, so the spots should fill up. If they don't, why not allow 5 presentations to a user.

How about adding Worst Sports Game for Fail?

And rename the Fail Awards... The (Smashy) Smasher Awards

Favorite Pixl sounds like a great idea.

Maybe a Best Handheld Game too if you don't have that already.

Ugh, sick of some of these results. It's a miracle that Yoshi's Island beat YIDS, and really? Galaxy 2 as the best game? Not even Galaxy 1, let alone some of the classics? Next year, SM3DL or PM3DS will win, whether they deserve it or not (they probably won't). And really, Mario Party 8 and DS as the best MPs?

Some guy had an idea in a different thread about putting a bit of info about the game next to each game on the polls. If this happened, people who are new to the Mario series may vote for games that they haven't played.
Proud to have gotten 4th place in the 2011 Awards Brawl Tournament! Only 3 people did better than I did!
I'm very busy right now. You won't see me much at all, unless I'm playing mafia (which I manage to find a little bit of time time for.)

If you see Smasher 101, tell him I said hi. He'll scream and run away.

Press the Kill Gigaremo button to feed me food!
Oh wait, I mean the Feed Gigaremo butto– *dies*

Yes, but even within the categories vote totals get lower.

I also think there are a few awards that need replacing, or, should we decrease to 55 or 50 Awards, be removed, most notably:

-Favorite Retro Issue
-Worst Remake
-Worst Other Medium
-Worst Baby

Worst Spin-Off has also been the same thing all three years.  I think we should change not only awards that just weren't too popular, we should also try to change awards that have had the same results again and again.

Actually, maybe instead of removing the Award, remove the nominee that keeps winning.

This probably isn't relevant to the discussion, but I think I may sign up for this next year.

Also, there should be more Userpedia awards. There is only 5 of them. If Userpedia some added, why not 'Shroom awards? We only have 10 for that show.

OK, I've read through these suggestions and here are my thoughts...

No expanding past 60.  The more we add, the more we sacrifice quality for quantity.  If we downsize, I think we will have better presentations.  That being said, we can go with anything up to 60.  The best way to handle this would be having it as the first thing on the committee's agenda when we begin in March.  Here's what it looks like...
-Mario: 30 Awards again.  Some will change and some will stay the same.
-Fail: 10 or 15 Awards.  Some will be replaced, and if we go to 10, some will be removed.
-Userpedia: 5 Awards, 10 Awards or possibly being removed.  I've talked with some other committee members who just don't think there's much more that can be covered.  Still, some people think it could be expanded, which would mean another category would have to be sized down.  If Userpedia does get removed, which I don't think it will, the Lifetime Achievement Award would stay.  That would be the only way the number of awards aren't an increment of five.
-'Shroom: 5 or 10 Awards.  The way I see it, there are more than 5 good awards, but not enough for 10 (Favorite Retro Issue wasn't a very good one since people probably don't remember what most of those issues were like).
-We could possibly merge 'Shroom and Userpedia into 10 or 15 Community Awards that cover both the 'Shroom and Userpedia.
-I've also heard about a couple people interested in adding 5 NIWA Awards.  Obviously, to do this, 5 others would have to be removed.  Besides, we have no idea how relations with NIWA will go between now and March, when meetings start again.

To sum that all up, 60 is the maximum since if we go past that, we're putting quantity over quality.  None of the awards besides the 30 Mario Awards will be set in stone until when the committee begins to meet.  Our first order of business will be splitting up the other 20-30 Awards as we see fit.

As for the suggestions:
The only ones that really stood out to me were Worst Sports game and Favorite Handheld Game.  We could also do a Worst Handheld Game if we wanted to.  Most of the others were too obscure (like Yoshi Color and Mario Outfit) and some of the others have already been done and removed due to lack of popularity (Favorite Pixl, for example).  I don't really have any to suggest at the moment except Favorite Badge.  If PM3DS gets a lot of coverage at E3 next year (which occurs a few days before voting), this could be a very successful award.

Awards like, Best Signature, Best Avatar, Best Username, stuff like that.

Hey, if you're saying I ripped something off from you, go ahead, but you only put sprites on your profile, which is different than what I did.. I decided to do a character from the series.
