If people would like to donate prizes please do so whenever you can, as our stockpile is running low.  Any kind of prize is accepted, but Steam things (games, community items, and in-game items) seem to be the most popular.  You can also donate physical prizes (i.e. Amiibos) if you are aware of shipping costs and private information (names, addresses) being shared.  Download codes for Nintendo Points, iTunes, 3ds/WiiU games, gift cards, etc. are also accepted.  Recommended range for spending is $5-10 for standard prizes, and ~$50 for our highest prizes, but we can accommodate any amount.

IF YOU'RE PLANNING ON GETTING A STEAM GAME, PLEASE WAIT TO MAKE YOUR PURCHASE DURING THE SUMMER SALE SO YOU DON'T WASTE ALL OF YOUR CASH (June 11-20)

The prize list will be posted later in the Awards season, likely August, with token amounts being determined after a majority, or all, of the tournaments have concluded and dispersed tokens so we can make costs fair and balanced.

Just contact me, smasher, or blocky with any questions, comments, ideas, donations, whatever.

Also it would be a good idea to add The Mushroom Vault, our Awards prize stockpile account, if you intend on donating or receiving a prize, as many things have a 30-day wait period either from purchase, or to trade, or whatever.  Last year we faced this sorta problem quite often so let's be a little proactive about it   :bowser:

ALSO ALSO ALSO ALSO if you're looking for a prize donation that's not just a standard steam game, gift cards are available online via paypal with https://www.paypal-gifts.com/us/giftcardlist and https://www.paypal-gifts.com/uk/

I recommend using those to get nintendo eshop cards for regions you can't buy at the store (i.e. person in New York buying an EU Nintendo eshop card) or for itunes cards or something.  If you do get things form this please try to stay relevant to the interests of this community (i.e. I doubt anyone's going to find much use from an Omaha Steaks gift card).  I'm honestly not to sure exactly how the digital gift cards work so if someone does it please let me know.

That game is in a funny spot with its release, as it will be available to Europeans and Australians in like the next week.  We voted on it during meetings and decided to keep it in A7, as well as A8 and A9.  While it's not playable to many North Americans yet a lot of details are known and will be known fully during the time polls are up.

A lot of the things in the fail awards aren't even bad

Yeah that tends to happen when a lot of people hate something for no reason.  We had to keep a lot of legitimately good things in the Fail Awards simply because a lot of people voted for them in previous years.

Awesome! And since they're still on the dossier page, hopefully the slew of votes is still a well-informed slew.

Also, props for having the new E3 games on the "most anticipated" award. Talk about bein' on da ball.

I'm surprised Courage Mafia is up in favorite Mafia game. Both because I didn't think any of my Mafias would be nominated and I thought my Star Wars and Xenoblade Mafias were better (In the latter case though you guys may have already decided the nominees by that point idk)

But I'm flattered ^^

It was renamed to Favorite Species.

As was pointed out here, the "community poll" template is too wife and is messing up the main page for anyone with narrower screens. Could it be changed to be only two or three columns instead, like last year, please?

Yeah that'll be fine.  I can try to do it myself but I'm rubbish with wiki editing and *bleep* so if you want to do it instead go right on ahead.

Looks good. Although Porple might make it two by two to make room for ads.
