WP:DICK of Distinction -- Risker (who continues her long reign as the stupidest person on Wikipedia)

The Tag-Team Event -- The Article Rescue Squadron (those lovable Keystone Kops are still racing about to save stuff that no one in the real world cares about)

Miss Incongeniality -- Baseball Bugs (who serves absolutely no purpose on WP except to stir up AN mischief)

Most Vexatious Litigant -- Titptoety (Wikipedia's would-be police officer)

The Straight Shooter -- Alison (though, to borrow an old line, what's a nice girl like her doing in a place like that?)

The Cojones de latón -- Malleus F. (the winner and still champ)

The TL;DR Award - Newyorkbrad (have you ever tried reading his "explanations"?)

I second that snort. CHL (Frank Bednarz) is a NewYorkBrad wannabe. At best, officious and ineffective, and at worst, as much of a Jimmy Wales fondler as anyone.

It is not my place to tell you your job. However, are you not the Returning Officer for this election? If so, is it not inconsistent with your position to express strong criticism of a nominated candidate?

As for being a Jimmy fondler, that is not a good thing to say about a man so recently married. Anyway, I thought Jimmy preferred females. unsure.gif

OK, seriously can I nominate Cool Hand Luke for straight shooter. He's really cool.


Nothing personal, but that is one of the dumbest statements I've ever seen in my life! ermm.gif


Our policy as been to accept all nominations and let the voters sort them out. Of course, derisive comments are also welcome.

The Tag-Team Event -- Ryulong and anyone who gives in to his wishes


Our policy has been that to be nominated as a tag-team, the members must be specified.

Can we include Commons in this year's pageant? Pleasepleaseplease!!

We are suppposed to be the Wikipedia Review, but I won't object to the idea. I therefore nominate Jmabel, admin on both Wikipedia and Commons, for straight shooter. And if you've never heard of him, it's not too surprising. He's a gentleman and a smooth back-room fixer who's helped any number of people on the quiet.

I concur. I would also offer this discussion on the BLP noticeboard where Will maintained that he was going to add disputed information back to a BLP, but consistently refused to do so when asked. I think this went on for a full two weeks before someone closed it. Thus far, it has not been added back (which is fine by me, but I suspect if Will reads this he will make the edit of out spite).

Let's face it, Scott. Will knows that you are a ringleader in the League of Anti-Defamation Editors and you must be stopped.

The Tag-Team Event -- Wotsisface Herbert


Although it may mean letting an opportunity to be witty pass by, I would request that nominators spell the name of the nominee correctly so that I can figure out who it is and link to it. We like our voters to be able to make informed decisions, which means looking at the creature's edit history and record of snarky comments on talkpages and notice boards.

Also, allow me to repeat my reminder that a tag team must have more than one person.

If we're expanding the scope to include commons, Herbythyme is a no-brainer for the straight shooter award. He doesn't come up here much (and isn't, as far as I know, a participant here), but he's definitely on the white-hat side of the equation, and has been for a long time.

Some of these names keep popping up over and over. I'm sure they deserve it. But wouldn't it be better if there was some kind of "Hall of Fame" for certain folks (we can have an official induction ceremony, complete with personalized invites) and keep the space available for the up and coming dicks, cojones, tag-teamers and the rest?

Last year, for this very reason, we awarded the 2011 WP:DICK of A Lifetime™ Achievement Award to SlimVirgin (T-C-L-K-R-D) and Jayjg (T-C-L-K-R-D) , as well as the Lifetime Underachievement Award to Will Beback (T-C-L-K-R-D) . I will point out that Ottava also received an award last year.

So I think, at a very minimum, we should elevate Will "Beback" McWhinney (Jr.) to the "DICK of A Lifetime" award, and remove him from consideration elsewhere.

Also, the Notable editors forum is a de facto Hall of Shame of years gone by.
