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.


Yes, I'd concur with that..well at least he tries to be. He seems to have the unfortunate ability to land in the shit pile through absolutely no fault of his own.

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


It does need updating somewhat.

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.


Georgewilliamherbert and everyone's sycophant off2riorob (or whatever he's called now).

Jayen466 for latones. Remember all the grief he took for initiating the Cirt RfC. In response, Jayen was called a Nazi, a liar (by Raul654), and then shrilly hectored in an extremely personal way by Will Beback. In the end, the RfC was a slam dunk. Cirt was not only removed from the Scientology topic, he was also desysopped. In addition to that, Jayen has stood up for people being persecuted via their WP BLPs, such as Tahir Abbas. You'll notice in that deletion discussion that a couple of jackasses personally attack Jayen for trying to stop what they were doing with that article.

I guess I haven't followed Off2riorob's career closely. I thought of him as a good-guy type, challenging BLP defamers, but he seems to have pissed many people off for unrelated reasons. I note that Malleus is also widely loved and hated.

Here's what we have so far:

WP:DICK of Distinction --
 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Risker (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Timotheus Canens (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Will Beback (T-C-L-K-R-D)

The Tag-Team Event --
Georgewilliamherber (T-C-L-K-R-D) t and Off2riorob (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Miss Incongeniality --
Baseball Bugs (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Malleus Fatuorum (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Nobody Ent (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Off2riorob (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Ottava Rima (T-C-L-K-R-D)
TreasuryTag (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Most Vexatious Litigant --
 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Ottava Rima (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Tiptoety (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Will Beback (T-C-L-K-R-D)

The Straight Shooter --
Alison (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Cool Hand Luke (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Herbythyme (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Jmabel (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Nev1 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Scott MacDonald (T-C-L-K-R-D)
SB Johnny (T-C-L-K-R-D)

The Cojones de latón --
Cla68 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Jayen466 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Larry Sanger (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Malleus Fatuorum (T-C-L-K-R-D)

The TL;DR Award --
Ottava Rima (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Michael Netzer (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Newyorkbrad (T-C-L-K-R-D)



QUOTE(gomi @ Sat 7th January 2012, 6:10pm) *

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.

I sympathize, but I would hate to deprive Will of an opportunity to win the top honors by a popular vote. The closest he ever came was to win the tag-team title with SlimVirgin, and he may have ridden her coat-tails to victory on that one.

For Miss Incongeniality, I am surprised that Web "I am a self-proclaimed Aspie so my near-Tourett level of cussing and atrocious behavior is okay" Hamster hasn't been listed. WebHamster and Fred the Oyster among many other names.



Straight-shooter, I would like to nominate SandyGeorgia and Moni3. Both have quite properly told off people spouting nonsense regarding both Malleus and FAC issues (practically the same issue) without crossing the line but also not backing down. Sandy could be nominated for the Cajones because she is not an admin (even though she has near admin status for being a FAC director).


By the way, could PeterDamian be added for Cajones for the whole WMUK stuff? After all, using his real name (?) and challenging the whole group over legal concerns takes quite a bit of guts.

QUOTE(gomi @ Sat 7th January 2012, 6:10pm) *

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.

Sounds good to me. Anyone who has already gotten an award perhaps should be ineligible for future awards.
You can call uncaring crazy people DICKs only so many times, before it ceases to have any meaning.

As if ANY of this had any meaning, of course. Some WPers watch WR like hawks, mostly for amusement,
sometimes for people posting bad articles so they can rush over and "fix" the bad, for a quick and
easy brownie point. (I don't post bad things anymore, 'cause I be savin' 'em. WR is just a database of past
abuses, at this point. A resource to be mined.)

(yawn) time to vote (yawn)

It's interesting that there hasn't been many nominations for tag-team candidates so far. I guess most of the more notorious tag-teams, such as the pro-Israel team, have faded away? I remember there was a team pushing a pro-Chavez POV in the Venezuela articles. I don't know if they are still active. I have encountered a small cabal in the SeaWorld articles, which I think I've mentioned before. Any other single-topic cabals out there? How about the PowerRanger/PocketMonster articles?

What about TCO and the FAC mess? Or something from the Malleus case? They seem to be spots that tag teams could be identified. It is hard to identify the tag teams because the historic ones have mostly been broken up over time after spending a lot of effort in identifying so many problems that they have been slowly addressed. I'm sure that there are still some of the old ones around but they lack the same power.

There's something like a tag team surrounding all the Fae crap iirc.

Since my prior tagteam got shot down on a technicality, may I nominate the FAC cabal to it (being made of up of Raul, SandyGeorgia, Karanacs, and Ucucha)?
