But a lot of people /want/ more Awards. You should try appealing to the general public.

The show would be too long.  Most people, myself included, who would be the dang director, wouldn't be able to attend the whole thing.

Not really, it would start 30m earlier and end 1h later...you've been on since 10:00 and it is now 1:00 AM (EST). The only problem is (your) lunch at 4:00 EST and we don't need everyone here the whole time...

My parents don't know I have an account.  I had to pull some strings to be here this time.

Then get a few more directors. Stooben is a director, Wayoshi is a director. MG1 and I directed UP, and Tucky directed 'Shroom. It worked out perfectly. I'd be happy to help organize this if another category and more Awards is what the users want, although you could definitely choose someone else...

I really don't want to do that.

Now, not that I like to be the annoying jackass who says no all the time, but:

Unless you actually have an idea as to what these extra awards would be, it won't happen.

And putting the awards together is a ton of work.  The actual scripts isn't the problem.

The problem is making the polls, results tables, scripts, getting presenters.  We barely even got 50 *bleep*ing scripts signed up for this year.  If anything, revert back to 40.  Let's just stand pat at 50.

And I know for a fact Wayo would not support this.  In fact, he would prefer to have the 30 Mario, nothing else.

As much as I love The 'Shroom and Userpedia, we may need to scrap those two for next year.  Seriously, this is the Mario awards.

So you're saying once he gets an idea, they'll happen?

I bellieve he said he would do that, and I would be glad to help him out, as I'm sure many other users would be

It's too much work.  It would take too long.  I know for a fact that the more awards you have, the fewer people will vote because it seems like too many for them.

And I'd really like to have more awards.  It's too much work.  If anything, we need to go back to 40 instead of try to do too much.  Anything more than 50 would be oversaturating the Awards.  Too much.

How about we change A19 again?  Favorite Species was weak.  Too close to Enemy.  How about something like Favorite NPC.  It doesn't sound great, but we have 8 months before any decisions need to be reached.

Go to the AC Staff boards for that...anyways, work, work, work, I disagree with that comment, SMB, me and DR have all volunteered to do the work alread. And why is that a fact? Also, I disagree with the oversaturating comment...I think that the awards have more unsapped potential.

I will be more than happy to create six scripts for next year. The comic was the biggest problem, so just screw it.

I wanna make more than three scripts next year, these three were fun to make and I wanna try a story-type script :(

My scripts were just crappy-drawings, a big red rectangle with the results (and a lot of Marioguy1s pasted around) and a montage of sections, nothing really creative...

Quote from: A12 Best Supporting Character
Bowser Jr. 41 (16%)
Toad - 32 (12.6%)
Waluigi - 31 (12.2%)
Daisy - 28 (11%)
Petey Piranha - 25 (9.8%)
Baby Luigi - 20 (7.8%)
Baby Mario - 16 (6.3%)
Diddy Kong - 14 (5.5%)
Toadsworth - 13 (5.1%)
Toadette - 6 (2.4%)
Birdo - 5 (2%)
O. Poochy - 5 (2%)
O. King Boo - 4
O. Rosalina - 3
O. Boo - 2
O. Fawful - 2
O. Baby Luma - 1
O. Cuckoo Condor - 1
O. Dixie Kong - 1
O. Dry Bones - 1
O. Hammer Bro. - 1
O. Paratroopa - 1
O. Starlow - 1
O. Tiny Kong - 1

Poochy, a write-in, got as many votes as Birdo, one of the default choices. Therefore, Poochy must be a default choice next year.

I will assassinate as many people as needed to make this happen.

That's like, 5 people. I'm sure 5 people could handle it.

I would, but you probably won't trust me...

I'm sorry, but you've never even been involved with the awards before.  There is no way you would be able to do some of the stuff.

And most of the worst isn't stuff that can be split up.

Here is what I did over the last couple months:

June 11-16: Create polls
July 15-19: Tally results
July 19-20: Send out results to presenters, persuade people to sign up
July 20-August 1: Write scripts, get people to sign up
August 2-6: Away, receive 40 PMs
August 7-9: Gather, organize scripts, tell presenters who haven't finished to finish
August 10: Rewrite my own terrible scripts
August 11-13: PM properly formatted, edited scripts to presenters and hosts
August 13: Show

While it looks like these tasks can be split, honestly, they can't.  There is too much time taken to explain to too many people how to do all the stuff.

I did all the things listed above while Stooben designed tons of images, not just for the result tables, but for the seven presentations he did.  We could barely get 50 scripts together.  It would impossible to do much more.

I know we get more users every year, but you have to account for veterans retiring, and that includes veterbs who have been involved with the awards for a while.  A lot of the new users don't want to get involved. In fact, this is what one user told me.  This user joined in late 2009:

Quote
IS HE KIDDING? NO WAY!  Why the heck would I do that?? NO!  I'M NOT DOING IT. I'M TOO BUSY.

I'd love for this whole thing to happen, but it can't be done.  So, I will tell you again:

NO.

The time isn't the problem.  It's getting the awards set up in the first place.  We had trouble even coming up with a decent A19 in the first place, and the first thing I wanna do next year is get rid of Favorite Species.

Once again, you guys are trying to oversaturate the awards.  It can't be done.  It won't happen.  I am putting my foot down.

NO.
