I basically win it every year just because people that don't read userpedia think the name sounds cool. It makes me feel bad when I win since I'm not even deserving of it! :P

But you guessed you would win. Don't you want those tokens? It's a paradox.

Well, I figured it's probably going to happen! So yes, that is a paradox.....

Anton couldn't be here, so I'm posting his speeches for him.



Userpedia has taken many forms throughout its history, starting as The User Wiki on June 12th, 2007, to bring “unproductive” user comics and stories away from the factual content of Mariowiki.  As time went on, User Wiki moved to Mwuserpedia, changed hosts from EditThis to Scribblewiki, then to Adriels, and now to its own server, a somewhat complicated series of transitions that is easier to read here where it’s already fleshed out some!  Userpedia’s time on Scribblewiki saw the largest rise in activity, sometimes matching or surpassing that of Mariowiki’s in all aspects—wiki, forum, and chat.  It became such a part of the community that the Userpedia Awards were added to the MW Anniversary Ceremony in 2008.
       
After SMB stepped down after 3 great years of Steward at the turn of 2013, Crash and I have assumed Co-Stewardship and, along with the rest of the staff, decided to take a few different turns.  In this past year Userpedia has been combating the issues of activity, quality, stagnation, technical problems, and how we view our purpose as a site.  Each one has been tackled in a ways that have changed the face of Userpedia substantially, and what we think is for the better.  To help shake things up, as well as providing a general facelift, we (with a lot of work put in by 22 and Edo) created 2 new main themes: Urban Night and Urban Day.  In order to show that the site is more about the users, the new logo features images of a person’s fan-character if they sign-up to do so.  Though Adriels has hosted Userpedia well for a few years, it began to crash a lot and jeopardize the integrity and safety of the information on the site, so we moved to our own domain and server through the VPS Management site Hexxeh.  While this was a massive step, we underestimated the actual traffic Userpedia received and the amount of bandwidth we had was not enough, resulting in crashes sometimes once a week, sometimes once every 15 minutes.  Through some trial and error, including just simply being on watch to reset it every time it crashes, it was decided to just move hosts again in July.  Along with it being cheaper, we now have more memory and have not experienced any technical issues since!
         
We still have some big plans in the works and just need to fine-tune things before making them happen, but I’ll allow a little insight into what we’re mulling over.  Over the past few years a few of us have noticed that UP has been taking a more serious approach on things.  We figured that making a new fun theme as the default would help break this, but more needs to be done.  We are now working to take our long list of confusing rules and turn it into only one page of basic common sense rules; easing up on more of the stringent things and just letting people have fun and be creative!  There are also vague plans in the works for a Proposals system to bring the community back into the discussion of Userpedia’s path.
         
And finally, the awards.  The UP staff worked hard on trying to make this year different--making it more modern with the nominations so people actually know what is what instead of having to research relics from 2008, as well as start to turn more towards awards focusing on the community as a whole rather than looking only inwards.  It is with this that we hope to start being more inclusive to the entire community.  Thank you to all of the people who have been working hard in both the Userpedia and Mariowiki communities, as well as those who have worked tirelessly to set this ceremony up!
