The 'Shroom:Issue XCI/Awards Director Address
Heya ‘Shroom readers, Mariowiki visitors, guests, whoever else! On behalf of Smasher (talk) and Hypnotoad (talk), I thank those who voted and supported our campaign for Co-Directors of the Awards Committee, along with our Sub-Director, Superchao (talk). While no one ran against us, I do appreciate the people who encouraged me to take up the position and have already offered their support!
To re-iterate our plans of mostly maintaining and tweaking the system Turb and Superchao have set up the last two years:
Some changes that we intend to make and talk over with the AC this year:
While the general community can influence the awards through a Suggestion Box topic on the forum, a more effective and hands-on way to participate would be to join the Awards Committee. In anticipation of the upcoming awards season, anyone who’s interested please send Hypnotoad (talk) (Forum profile), Smasher (talk) (Forum profile), and/or Superchao (talk) (Forum profile) a PM showing us that you can meet this simple list of requirements:
There may also eventually be other special positions, which along with applications will be discussed and decided upon by the core Awards staff and eventually other AC members.
Keep an eye out in the next few months for plans to start forming. We look forward to working with everyone this upcoming year and continuing the trend of making the awards bigger and better!
