>Have a collaboration between the 'Shroom and the Awards Committee to have special sections in the months leading up to the voting period that explain the nominations for the 'Shroom and Userpedia awards, obviously providing links so people can get more information; something like MG1's, Smasher's, and Tucayo's presentations this year. It's not much, but it could help educate people who don't know where to start with researching the community's history.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have gotta ask

Since when is Bowserpedia better than Userpedia? I mean it's my wiki and I love it, but barely anyone except from me, MCD and Smasher visit it. So how the heck did it win best user created site?

My guess

"Wow Bowserpedia sounds cool! I'm going to vote for it!"

Which is why something must be done.

Remove all cool sounding stuff!! I guess, like everyone is suggesting, we fix up the voting system so that only users who know what stuff like this is.

Unless they REALLY liked the history

Also I must apologise for my annoying newsreader-esque posts I made last night. I don't know what I expected to achieve by that. I realise it annoyed a lot of people in chat last night, so once again, I apologise.

I didn't find anything wrong with them but oh well.

Eh, on the 16th or 17th page, Pyro came on and told me to shut up, because some of the people in chat were complaining about my posts. I wasn't in chat at the time, so I didn't really know. It would have been better if he warned me politely like 10 posts before, instead of shocking me like he did right then and there. But I guess it's in the past, so forgive and forget.

It will be run in The 'Shroom (similar to how the Poll Committee Election is done) and will run from the September issue through the October issue.

No guest voting. I refuse to see Super Mario 3D Land above 64 or World or Mario 3.

And return to having 80-100 votes per poll?

That's not going to happen we aren't getting rid of guest voting because there is no valid reason to get rid of it. All opinions are subjective towards the people who are voting some might think 3D Land is better then 64 and if they do you shouldn't care at all.

The vast majority who voted for 3DL or Galaxy 2 were kids. Don't deny it.

...they've probably never touched an older game, and if they did would think it was bad because the graphics aren't as good and/or it's too hard.

And they have every right to believe that. You still haven't given a valid reason as to why we shouldn't let them vote, unless your reason is they disagree with me.

This isn't really a good reason. Like Shoey said, they have the right to have that opinion.

...they've probably never touched an older game

This could be considered a good reason, though.

I'm all for no guest voting on UP and 'Shroom, but there's no way I'd allow that for Fail and Mario.

I'd say Userpedia yes but not on the Shroom awards since many readers are guests
