Okay, I'm new to the Mario Awards (not to the wiki, however).  Can you explain it to me in a nutshell?

To summarise, every year we celebrate our anniversary by holding polls to see what everyone's favourite/least favourite character/game/level etc is, then present them in an entertaining way. We also have game tournaments and other contests with tokens as rewards, which can be exchanged for real prizes.

As seen in the (tentative) schedule, in mid-June.

Here's the current token sheet as 2018's hasn't been made yet.  I don't see you on this list at all, so where are you getting 30 from?  If it's from 'Shroom stuff, that'll be formally calculated in a few months.

Yeah, thatís probably because I didnít participate last year, and I wasnít a wiki member before that.  I joined the 'Shroom back in November, and I estimated the number of tokens I got since using the 'Shroom Achievements Page.

By the way, how do I earn tokens outside of achievements?

Tokens can be earned primarily through Anniversary activities, such as participating in tournaments or creating presentations for the Awards Ceremony.  Tournaments will start in June and will run through the end of August, so you'll see them starting to pop up around then.

Hey guys, Lakituthequick has a section called Anniversary Announcements that he does that summarizes what we at the AC have been up to for the last month.  It's a very accessible and easy-to-interpret way to see what's been going on and keep (at least monthly) updated on stuff.  He has also introduced an interview feature where he talks with members of the AC to get to know more about them--this month features someone really super extra cute, btw :bowser:  Be sure to give it a read!

Excuse me if this is a weird question, but how do I sign up to write one of the results reveals? I was thinking of potentially writing something for one of those reveals, but I dunno how to even sign up. Is it exclusive to members of the AC, or can anybody join so long as they get allowed to write one by decree of the AC?

You can read last year's Anniversary page to get the write-up on presentations from then.  I doubt much will change from those details between now and when this year's information will go up.  A sign-up page for this will open to the public on July 1st, with the only advantage given to AC members being a week before being allowed to select one before everyone else.
