What? Why?

The Super Mario Wiki was created on August 12th, 2005, 13:47 EDT. On August 12th, 2006, this wiki was off to a good start, but still there was only a small amount of active users. On Saturday August 11th, 2007 with a userbase finally forming, we celebrated our wiki's existence with an awards show on 30 of our favorite Mario topics, including favorite games, music, items, series, moments, enemies, and more.

Now with 29,876 users and counting, that time is approaching again. An amazing 62 voted on our first awards last year, but before actual voting gets underway, we need all the help we can get – and that possibility comes with the Awards Committee.

Sign-Ups

Award Presentations

Thanks to all 93 people who voted for the Mario Awards, a 50% increase from last year, as well as 56 for the all-new Userpedia Awards!

During the Awards Show in August, the ceremony will reveal 40 award results based on these 90+ voters' opinions in a forum thread. However, to spice up the show, instead of making it plain, you get to customize 2 award results to your liking [you must be both a forum user (to actually do it in the ceremony thread) & a wiki user (to sign up here), sorry guests]. What can you do? Remember that the idea is to have an Oscar-like presentation with all the big stars (us!) who made this wiki what it is today coming. Suggestions:

  • You come on the stage to announce the results, using your writing style and even having other members commenting/insulting you while giving out the nominees, even interrupting you. Here you can respond back and make a big funny script out of it.
  • Have a Mario character come out to present the award (i.e. let Marioverse characters interact with us). There's some nice possibilities here – having users interrupt the character to ask it questions, for example.
  • Create a comic to present the results, using whatever sprites you want, user or real, possibly incorporating the ideas above. This is particularly desirable for Userpedia Awards.

You may do anything you want, not limited at all to the above, but please try to do something, and not be just plain. You should at least give out the nominees and have something like "The WINNER is..." and a few line breaks down for suspense (not too much).

There will be short 3-5 minute breaks in-between each presentation. The idea is that users can comment on the previous presentation as well as continue script ideas spurred from past presentations or even have separate scripts off-stage, perhaps in chat as well. It's all supposed to be one big party AND show both in chat and on the forum.

All slots have been filled. I have privately communicated the results of the awards to the signed-up presenters. The order of presentations will be Userpedia first, then Mario, will start with U/A1 and end with U10/A30, but will be somewhat randomized, somewhat ordered so that more important awards come towards the end. This also gives time to accommodate users who cannot stay the whole show (which is likely to last past 10p EDT) and make sure they present early on.

Presenters should be nearly-100% sure they will be here for the entirety of the event before signing up. Failing to tell me in advance that you will only be here part of the time may mean a loss of the presentation, including your script, and it will create a major problem for me when I have to create a script in five minutes. Try to limit the chances that something will come up unexpected; clear your schedule, etc. If a presenter finds out that being present is not a possibility, they should PM their presentations to me so I can post it for them.

TERM OF AGREEMENT: YOU ARE BY SIGNING UP FOR ANY AWARD OR BACKUP ROLE ABSOLUTELY AND COMPLETELY AGREE TO NOT RELEASE ANY RESULTS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES UNTIL IT IS TIME TO PRESENT. VIOLATION OF THIS MUTUAL TRUST WILL LEAD TO THE STRIPPING OF YOUR PRESENTATIONS FOR THIS AND ALL FUTURE AWARD SHOWS, AS WELL AS A BAN FROM BOTH FORUM AND CHAT FOR THE ENTIRE DAY OF AUGUST 8, THEREBY ELIMINATING YOU FROM THE FESTIVITIES.

Userpedia Awards

Userpedia is a sub-wiki of ours where many of our active users enjoy creating comics involving sprite versions of themselves or others. Encyclopedia speaking, it is a wiki covering this wiki, but articles about users, important pages and the like have additional details added to them to give Userpedia itself a whole different feel than MarioWiki. It is closing in on 2000 articles.

Userpedia is included as a separate, smaller sub-set for this year's awards, as long as it is all in good fun, without any competition between the creators of the nominated works whatsoever.

ChaosNinji (talk) led the AC to form the awards for this subsection.
