So, every year, we have a big celebration of the anniversary of the Wiki and the community as a whole, right? The actual ceremonies happen in mid-August, but to ensure there's enough time for everything to run smoothly, the build-up for Awards begins in June (it actually begins a few months earlier than even that, but that's mostly the realm of the Awards Committee. The highly-visible events start in June). Polls open in mid-June, then they close in July, which makes late July and early August the period where everyone is busy getting to work making presentations to... well, present the results at the ceremony in August.

So you can see how June, July, and August make up the bulk of rewards related activity. But the formal stuff isn't all we do for Awards. We also like to have fun and deepen the sense of comradery in the community with tournaments and group games, both forum games and videogames of various types. These usually also occur in the June-August period, since that's when you have people active, on the forum, and filled with energy for Awards (especially June through mid July, before attention gets diverted towards making presentations).

So, all of that considered, June, July, and August form what we call "Awards season," when the business of Awards - and all the games and tournaments - are in full-swing.

Hope I can be a part of all of the major awards stuff before I have to start focusing on high school.

It looks like you were trying to get a minimum of eight players. If I'm being bluntly honest, it looks to me like there's not enough interest for you to get that number (I don't play many Kirby games, sorry to say). I don't want to discourage you from trying to host, and it may be possible more people are interested than it looks like, but I think it might be time to consider the possibility the tournament isn't going to work this year.

There's no shame in that. It happens sometimes. I've had my own attempts at hosting tournaments not get enough interest to go through with it in the past. Don't despair. You can always try it next year, perhaps with a different approach, if it doesn't work out this year, and it might be better for you to focus on joining in the other games and tournaments anyways.

Yea, good point. I'll leave the thread up for now, but... well... I don't actually know what people will like, or have any ideas for Mario-related tourneys. So yea, maybe next year... also, might as well ask hear, is anybody interested in a Super Mario World speedrunning competition? just want to know, maybe I could try that, maybe not.

In this meeting it was decided to leave the award at 17 nominees rather than decide between the 4 tied for 18th, World of Plight being one of them. Anyone can still write it in, though!
Oh, looks like it still had a dossier entry for C9 due to me miscounting. This has been fixed to match the poll.

Where do I apply to be one of the people who creates the reveal for an award? I may be interested, but I can't figure out where to do that, especially seeing as I've never done this before.
