Yup, it's here again - Nukapedian of the Year!
The year 2013 has us in a downtime between games, but nonetheless users continue to build up our content base and community base. As many of you may remember from last year, the Nukapedian of the Year is to be the user who has had the greatest positive influence on the wiki in the year 2013. This is deliberately kept vague to cater to individual users' views on what "positive influence on the wiki" really means to them.
Basically, to nominate someone, just post his/her username in a comment indicating a nomination, along with an optional reason, e.g.:
“I nominate ________, (optional:) for _________.”
In order for your nomination to be approved, it must be seconded by a registered user in the community who has made at least one prior edit. To second a nomination, simply post a reply comment saying so. If you wish to show support to a candidate who has already been nominated and seconded, you can still second/show your support for the candidate. Please note however that the user with the most nominations or support here may not necessarily be the final winner - a neutral board of un-nominated members in good standing (to be selected) will decide the final winner.
Each registered user can nominate only once but can second/show support for an unlimited number of users.
Anonymous users may nominate but they may not second.
As organiser, I have decided that I will not be up for possible nominations, nor will I be nominating or seconding anyone at this stage.
A board will be chosen. Besides myself, this board will not contain any previous members of the board (although alternates last year may be selected) but will contain last year's winner - Agent c!
During the second stage, we will bring all approved nominees to a vote, with the top three automatically advancing to the final stage as three of the five finalists. The remaining two will be selected by the board. The board will then proceed to determine the final winner as well as runner-up, to be announced on New Year's Day.
