I was personally thinking of something else as well...

Possibly:
*30 Mario Awards
*15 Fail Awards
*15 Userpedia
*10 'Shroom
*5 for a new category

Every year, we end up adding on a new category.

30 Mario Awards has been the standard and has worked. An increase for a Fail deserves to happen, so I added on 5 more. Userpedia is undergoing a lot of changes right now, and I really think it will be active enough and high quality enough for an additional 10 awards: 5 for factual user things, 5 for user fiction, and 5 for The Disconnected. The 'Shroom Awards went over pretty well; I think we could probably expand on sub-teams and writers in order to reach a goal of 10 awards for this category.

Also, it has been a yearly tradition to add new categories to the Awards... In 2007, the Awards themselves started. In 2008, the Userpedia Awards were added. In 2009, the Fail Awards made their debut. 2010 (this year), The 'Shroom got a category.

I think it's likely that we'll have another category; whatever it is, I suggest it be limited to 5 Awards. With the expansions I suggested for the other categories, having a new 5-award category will bring us to a total of 75 awards. I feel that can be managed if everything is sorted out correctly and can lead up to one of the best Awards Ceremonies we'll ever have.



Under this system, we can try to go for a 1-day thing (which I'm not sure would happen), or a 2-day thing.

If it were to go for 2 days, here's another suggestion:
*Day 1 - 15 Userpedia Awards, 10 'Shroom Awards, and 5 new awards (total: 30 awards on day one)
*Day 2 - 30 Mario Awards & 15 Fail Awards (total: 45 awards on day two)



Just some thoughts.

Maybe favorite writer in each sub-team instead of just one in general.

We actually had to make it earlier to make it fit in 1 day... I'll have an idea posted up soon.

Making it Later. I hardly saw it.
Later as in time of day? Most of our users are on the east coast. Making it later wouldn't have worked.

And don't add any more awards. 50 is the max. We can keep it as one day that way.

Why do we have to have it kept at 50? That will just stunt the growth of the awards. :\

It's not just for the sake of making more. :|

And I'm actually devising a possible schedule to fit it all in 1 day. I'll post it up in a few minutes.

OK. And I was barely able to stay until the end.

Honestly, we don't need any more awards. If NIWA put on a collective awards show for their anniversary, I'd consider doing that.

Possible schedule for next year:

*2:00; Chat parties start
*4:00 - 4:20; X (possible new category) Awards I
*4:25 - 5:10; 'Shroom Awards II
*10 minute break
*5:20 - 6:30; Fail Awards III
*20 minute break
*6:50 - 8:00; Userpedia Awards IV
*25 minute break
*8:25 - 9:35; Mario Awards V (Part I)
*15 minute break
*9:50 - 11:00; Mario Awards (Part II)
I think it would work pretty well for expanding another 25 awards. If not, we can just eliminate that proposed new category and shift around a few times to get a working schedule for a 70-award/4 category ceremony. I think it would work out well.

I see no problem with that idea...we shouldn't limit the progress of the awards just to conform to the traditions of the past.

Agreed. We just need to think of a new category...

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

Yes Ralph, don't be such a killjoy.

The show would be too long. Most people, myself included, who would be the damn 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.
