About

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.

In 2008, we expanded this magnificent event by including much of our userbase with Userpedia Awards I, and on August 8th, 2008, it turned out to be an even bigger success. 2009 saw our first Fail Awards and 2010 included the first 'Shroom Awards. 2011 brought along game tournaments, a Mafia game and prizes for participation and success in said events. This year should be an even better celebration, with an experienced Awards Committee and an ever-growing Wiki. We have over 100,000,000 page views and nearly 12,000 articles, as well as more active users than ever. This year's celebration should be a blast!

Presentations

Sign-ups have opened (as of July 1st). If you are interested in signing up, please read everything below and edit the sign-up list here. Users will be allowed to present a maximum of four awards.

What are these presentations, you ask? Well, you get to reveal the results of the award you choose in some sort of digital medium, whether it is a written story (usually a narrative or an interview with a user or Mario series character), a comic, a picture or even a playable game or a combination of multiple forms. These can be serious or silly (though most people prefer the silly ones). Polls close on July 11, so users should receive their results in their inbox on the forums some time between then and the 14th. Presentations will be due August 3rd. There are no exceptions. Do not sign up for a presentation if you are unsure if you can complete it. Doing so may result in a ban from creating presentations in future award shows. If something unexpected does come up, tell us as quickly as possible and we will be able to cover for you.

Who can sign up to present:
-Users with accounts on both the wiki and the forum that can complete their presentation within the roughly 2.5-week window

Who cannot sign up to present:
-Users without an account on the wiki or forum (you must have both)
-Users who are banned on either the wiki or the forums
-Users that have been banned from participating in Awards-related activities

Users that were previously banned but are not banned anymore will be accepted in some cases, but not all. This will be up to the discretion of the Awards Committee.

Game Tournaments and Other Events

Mario Awards III featured our first tournament, a Mario Kart tournament. There were no game tournaments in Mario Awards IV, but in Mario Awards V, Baby Mario Bloops (talk) hosted a Brawl tournament. We hope to have at least one game tournament this year. Anyone wishing to organize a tournament, whether they are an AC member or not, should contact Turboo to get everything organized. We will once again have our "Guess the Results" contest to go with this year's Award polls (signups here), an Awards Mafia II game (signups here) hosted by Stooben and Smasher, and a Mario Kart 7 tournament (signups here) hosted by Pyro!

One of the best parts of last year's events was that we were able to give prizes to the participants who performed well in the Brawl tournament, Mafia Game and Guess the Results contest. We hope to be able to give away prizes to the winners this year as well. Anyone who would like to donate prizes to be given out is more than welcome to do so. Please contact Turboo if you would like to supply prizes. Recommended items include Steam points, Nintendo points, iTunes cards or gift cards to any other online site or store. Any donation would be highly appreciated.

NOTE: Game tournaments are not a guarantee for Mario Awards VI. The Awards Committee will determine the inclusion or exclusion of these functions.
