Perhaps... giving new users more privileges?

Renaming the pink gold peach rank to Mega Mario rank?

This is for the Mario Awards, not the forums.

Rest in peace, Walkazo.

Are the "hurr hurr trifecta"-style posts going to be bannable?

I'm going to campaign for the permission to delete all those contentless posts this year, personally.

Not bannable, but I believe they should be deleted. If it does get way too out of hand and someone spams it, then they should get banned for spam.

I think it'd be a good idea just to ban the user from the Awards board until the awards are over if they go too far.

Any post relating to the predictions should be deleted. I don't mind people adding it on alongside a otherwise constructive post but if it just says "trifecta!" then delete it and warn them.
Rest in Peace Walkazo, forever will be missed

Pretty much yeah what blocky and stargazing said; I'm personally gonna delete them and do my best at discouraging them from happening.  A few every now and then is whatever like if you got a trifecta on something that was wildly unexpected, but how it's been the last few years with people announcing whether they got one or not while not even commented on the presentations is a bit annoying and disrespectful.

Oh.

How about a new awards category?

Here's the full list of awards and nominees last year, that would be a good place to start looking for ideas for new whatever.

I voted on all of those, despite not being signed up.

Everyone can vote on them, that's the point.  The Awards Committee which awards are nominees are even put into the polls to begin with.

As for Forum Awards I realllllllllllllllllly don't think that will be a good idea.  The Userpedia Awards will contain the closest to what any Forum Awards would be permitted or, well, sane, so take a peek at those.

I see. Well, it was just a thought.


I could host a Sm4sh Tournament.

Hosting a tournament takes a lot of responsibility and planning.  To be quite honest, I think it would be better if you got a feel for how the awards worked before jumping in to do things.  All meetings are (mostly) public and all tournaments are open to (mostly) everyone.

Alright. I'll stand by.


I'll be part of a tournament though. Guaranteed.


I wish to help as much as I can and hope to be of service.

I would need to get people to register, make a bracket, make a thread for it, and have people exchange friend codes/nnids. All in all a very tiring process.

Apply to be part of the Awards Committee, then discuss your idea there and after preparations have been made, create the sign-up thread.

Or something like that, I'd expect.

You think it'd be possible to have stuff relating directly to the wiki? Like "Best Featured Article" or something? There's probably not much you can do with the category, but I always thought it'd be a nice idea.
