General Discussion
« on: March 15, 2010, 12:30:42 AM »
Welcome to the official discussion thread for Mario Awards IV!  This year, we are reverting to having an Awards Committee make decisions, but everyone is welcome to attend meetings, and your opinions are welcome.  Keep in mind, however, that the AC will have the final say.  We hope to start meetings on Friday, 3/19.  Meetings will be held in #mwikiawards on the DarkMyst IRC network, beginning at 8 pm Eastern (UTC-5) time and lasting for approximately two hours.

This year, the awards will include:
-30 Mario Awards
-10 Fail Awards
-5 Userpedia Awards
-5 'Shroom Awards

The Awards Committee is currently in the process of brainstorming changes that will be made from last year to this year's awards.

The 5th anniversary is here?

WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?
Suéltalo, suéltalo
No lo puedo ya retener
Suéltalo, suéltalo
Ya no hay nada que perder
Que más da, ya se descubrió
Déjalo escapar
El frio a mi nunca me molestó.

I'm just wondering, how come we didn't just make the Awards Staff board public and turn it into the public Awards Board like we did last year?

Actually, there was no official Awards Staff last year.  Everyone was allowed to come to meetings, but there wasn't an AC to make final decisions.  Before that, only the AC went to meetings.  This way, we avoid chaos and confusion while getting everyone's opinions in.

Is there going to be another MKWii tournament?

If so, I've got a title to defend.

I think so.  Also, we'll have Guess the Results, an SSBB tournament (I hope), a Red Carpet Show, and maybe some sort of afterparty.

Ugo, I don't understand what you mean.  The Awards are a celebration of the Wiki's anniversary.

Because we can, OK?  We're celebrating something that we made, so stop whining about it.

Unlike most holidays, the awards are commemorating something we did.  We made the Wiki what it is today.  We edit the articles, ban the trolls, write The 'Shroom, and we want to celebrate that.  So we have Awards.

Ugo, you're way out of line.  If you don't like it, suck it up and leave the rest of us alone.  Nobody's forcing you to respond here.
