As per a decision to tackle the problem of inflation plaguing our awards token economy, we've taken the first step in our restructuring of token worth, distribution, and prize rates.  The timeline we have for this is:

Quote from: Credit to Edo for spearheading this
1. Make a decision on how to handle token deflation
2. Gauge interest in hosting tournaments, map out a tentative list of likely tournaments from that, and try to determine how many tokens that will add to circulation
3. Figure out how many shroom tokens the Shroom will give out, and how many awards tokens we will allocate to that
4. Roughly determine the amount of prizes there will be (this may take a while)
5. Use information from 1,2, 3, and 4 to make an informed decision on how much every prize will cost

Step 1 was finalized in the meeting tonight, which is to deflate the token amounts, dividing by 10, and rounding to the nearest whole number.  We realize that at first this looks like we are confiscating tokens, but I assure you that the following steps will result in prize prices being decreased and fall within range for everyone to have a good chance of achieving without necessitating joining every single tournament and dominating.

If there are any questions, comments, or concerns please let us know!  We are doing this to make the whole process more fair to everyone, so we appreciate any input.  Feel free to check our public meeting logs and the Full List document for the rest of the decisions we have made so far.

This week there will be no formal AC Meeting, mostly because we don't have anything at the moment to discuss that would adequately fill a full meeting time.  Instead, I encourage you all to do what you can to get tournaments started and off the ground, either by creating one, continuing work on one you're doing, encouraging others to start one and join, and join them yourselves!

Prize donation is also critical to this event, so please, if possible, begin collecting donations for that and hold onto them for now.  These can include steam games, humble bundle games, game codes for pc and consoles, itunes cards, gift cards of all kinds, etc. etc., or even just flat monetary donations to me for a pool to supply the You-Choice Gift Card prizes.  If that it what you'd like to do, I will PM you my paypal link at your request.

Thanks, and keep an eye out for further developments, such as E3 shenanigans, extra help during poll creation and posting, the beginning of presentation selection, and for continuing our plan for overhauling the token economy as tournaments build up!  If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.

Just a reminder now that the Steam Summer Sale is going on:

DO NOT BUY STEAM GAMES WITH THE INTENT TO STORE THEM AS PRIZE DONATIONS

you literally can't anymore, you cannot store games in your inventory, nor gift them.  As soon as you purchase it it must be immediately sent (or scheduled) to a person directly, and if they do not accept it the game will be refunded.  This completely renders our standard system useless, so while you go and write angry letters to gabe do remember that Humble Bundle still exists and will likely have a summer sale as well for the same deals that Steam has.

Games grandfathered in inside inventories remain giftable, but there are no more additions.  Please donate either Humble Bundle codes, gift cards, cash, eShop codes, etc., just not Steam games.

The polls have officially been open for a week now, which means you can start voting again (if you voted as soon as they opened like I did :bowser: ).  Feel free to focus your votes on one thing in particular you want to win an award, or if there was something you couldn't decide you are more than welcome to split your votes between multiple nominees within the same award each week!

Also, heads up, in 1 week sign-ups open for presentations for the annual Mario Awards ceremony!!

There's still 30 presentation spots left open.  If you think you'll have the time, please sign up!  Doesn't have to be a masterpiece, you just gotta present the results in a fun way.

OP has been updated with the schedule of ceremony day

I've also been made aware that some documents from awards past are no longer able to be viewed by anyone with a link to them, due to a policy changed by google sometime between the last few years and now.  Should you come across one, please don't just ask for access for it through the doc itself since that can appear to be a request for editing privileges (which I won't grant :yoshi:) but also come into here or message me to let me know which ones they are so I can change the settings.

Tallying is coming along, don't you guys worry.  It's just very tedious, very detailed, and very easy to make and miss mistakes, and there's a huge amount of information to process and edit down.  Likely just another day or so on the rest of the results that have yet to be sent out, which includes most of Mario and Fail.

All results for presentation spots that have been filled have been sent out.  If you notice any errors please let me know because it's bound to happen, especially dealing with the enormous amount of information that it was.
