Tonight's the night!
Another year has gone by, and it's time to honor those Wikipedia admins and peons who made 2009 a year to remember.But first a note from the Program and Catering Committee: in this moment of almost certainly temporary, slightly embarrassing but no-big-whoop economic
depression recession, we have been inconvenienced by budget cuts, and consequently have found it necessary to re-use some of last year's images. As luck would have it, many of the same people won this time around. The buzz-word for 2010 is "sustainable" -- we are making the WP:DICK of Distinction Awards Pageant a "sustainable" event. Also, in deference to SlimVirgin, we would like it to be known that no animals were harmed in the course of making this year's WP:DICK of Distinction Awards Pageant. Staff and moderators of the Wikipedia Review are not eligible to compete in the WP:DICK of Distinction Awards Pageant, like they're not all banned from Wikipedia anyway.
So... let's get started, shall we? We'll proceed straight to the main event, the WP:DICK of Distinction
, for the most appallingly corrupt performance as an Admin. And the winner, for an unprecedented two years running, is...
David epitomizes the style, the glamor, the elegance, the class, the je ne sais quoi
that marks a true winner in the WP:DICK competition, and to David goes the Jimbo® for the second year in a row.
The honors for Runner-Up DICK go to a contestant who has been an important player on the WP circuit for some years, the ever-popular William Connolley.But wait, there's more...
In the competition for Miss Incongeniality
, for the most colorful and persistent violations of WP:CIVIL
, the winner is...
... with Honorable mentions going to William Connelley and to Chillum (T-C-L-K-R-D)
aka H (T-C-L-K-R-D)
aka HighInBC (T-C-L-K-R-D)
aka Until(1==2) (T-C-L-K-R-D)
, who both gave Dave a run for his money.
Now, in the Tag-Team event
: this year, this event was swept by two veteran competitors who came out of retirement to take the honors: SlimVirgin
and Will Beback!The Straight Shooter award
, for honest admins, goes to Alison
, who also won this category in the 2008 competition.
And finally, the Cojones de latón
, for non-admins who have displayed wit and valor in combat with the Cabal, goes, for the second year in a row, to Cla68
Congratulations all around, and we’ll see you next year on the red carpet!
