I mean, sure, there's inevitably the type of people that hate TTYD and/or Dream Team, but bar the three you propose, I can't think of any fairly hated Mario RPG.

While some more Fail awards inspired by Mario awards may be good ideas, I don't feel that turning the Fail awards in basically Nega-Mario Awards would be a good, or creative, idea.

Try to keep that in mind when sifting through new Fail ideas and deciding which ones to keep or toss out.

Maybe put something in place to prevent an overabundance of one line posts mentioning only how many trifectas and tokens you got while adding absolutely nothing else of value to the discussion.

Idk, it's worth a thought.

Or maybe there could be an extra thread dedicated to such comments.

Minimum expectations for presentations, including:
*Not just simply lists
*Must be relevant to the award being presented

In addition, a midway checkpoint just to get a feeling of where everyone's at, and a chance to prep a backup more than a week before.  The details of how this would function I'm not entirely sure of yet, but I think it's something that should be done.

In addition to this, people who do not respond to inquiries about their progress by the submission and/or presentation deadlines should be banned from the forum for the duration of the ceremony (i.e. this needs to be in writing and made aware to all prospective presenters once sign-ups are opened).
[...]This is the best weekend I've had since Salem.

I reckon the Guess the Results thread would be the most appropriate place for *bleep*posts about trifectas/tokens but then again perhaps outright banning 'em until after the ceremonies (and even then only allowing them in that thread) would be better (and way less annoying)

I think outright banning "Trifecta" or "Gold/Silver/Bronze trifect" or any form of "well I didn't get X, Y, Z on GTR" is for the better because it seems that's what half the posts in the threads, Fail and Mario specifically, are.

On a side note, for those that want to suggest awards, remember that there needs to be a reasonable amount of nominees with little to no bleeding into the other awards. For example, something like Worst Koopaling and Worst Baby do not work because there's only 7 Koopalings and like 10 babies total and it would mesh with Fave Koopaling and Fave Baby while Fave and Worst Galaxy do work because there are over 90 different galaxies. That is why Worst RPG and Fave/Worst Princess won't work, Worst RPG clashes with favorite RPG and there are only like 5 or 6 notable princesses in the games.

This is my first awards and I kinda feel this. Having the discussions in the same thread kinda buried the actual presentation posts and made them a bit hard to find. Maybe next year have a thread separate for discussion and have one dedicated to the presentations, or maybe update the OP with the new presentations / link to the posts with the presentations in them? I dunno.

other than the obvious inclusion of :pgp: in worst character, I can't think of any reasonable suggestions
More like best character.

I personally would like some of the presentations to be shorter, since it's hard to read them all and keep up with the awards, but at the end of the day I suppose that's the preference of whoever is making the presentation.

Instead of Best Princess, maybe a Best Female character so that you can include characters like Toadette (and Birdo?).

He would talk in that ear-grating voice until the other fighters fall off the stage.

Also something to get more voters to uh....vote...for Shroom and UP.  I guess those details are to be worked out within each respective group, but hey, heads up on that!
Per this. Maybe linking the dossiers in the issue of the Shroom they correspond to would help, instead of just here and one unassuming line on the general votes page ("this document" sounds more like reference material anyway - I was actually a bit surprised when I saw that the polls were there too, expecting only the dossiers, although it makes sense putting them together).

I personally would like some of the presentations to be shorter, since it's hard to read them all and keep up with the awards, but at the end of the day I suppose that's the preference of whoever is making the presentation.
Quality > quantity, yes, but the only problem is that if you're doing a text-based presentation, anything that's under five minutes' worth of reading might feel lacking in both criteria. Like, I could write a 5-minute drabble in 10-20 minutes, but would feel like a slacker when compared to, say, a comic that can be read in 2 minutes, but took 5 hours to draw.

If something's long, I just make note of it and come back and read it later. Granted, I don't care about 90% of these results and only come for the entertainment, but still.

With the way the internet can be at times, I'm worried a "best female character" award would regress into a "who has the honkiest set of Megahorns" contest. I'd rather not pander at the gawkers.

Plus, singling out female characters like that kind of rubs me the wrong way. It creates the illusion that being female is somehow an odd, alien concept that needs to be examined separately, when it actually should not matter at all in regards to respectability.

So pls no "best female" award.

It's obvious Rosalina would win best female character.
