Remember your basic instructions: you have a total of 3 points to award to DICK contestants. You may award all three to one candidate by voting for that person as both DICK and runner-up, or you may divide them by giving 2 to a DICK candidate and 1 to a runner-up. The winner will be the contestant with the highest combined point total.

You must cast one vote in every category. The last selection is the equivalent of a "pass."


All other categories are more straightforward: you have one vote for each category. Use it wisely.

Here, for any N00bs, are the definitions for each category:

WP:DICK of Distinction -- for all-around rottenness by an admin

The Tag-Team Event (see Wikipedia:Tag team)

Miss Incongeniality, for original and flamboyant violations of Wikipedia:Civility

Vexatious Litigant, for the person who just can't get enough of those noticeboards and arbitration cases

and for the good guys...

the Straight Shooter award for honest admins

and the Cojones de latón, for the non-admin who has distinguished himself in combat with the cabal

Click here for a history of this exalted competition, if you need the back-story.

All set? Let's vote! Keep it clean. Winners will be announced after the voting peters out in about 10 days.

Interesting... for the first time, several members in good standing of the Review are making a strong showing in the Bad Guys categories.

Are you talking about Ottava? biggrin.gif


On another note: I think this year is a first (?): neither Jayjg or SlimVirgin have been nominated in any category.

See, what happen when we do not have our normal piñatas to kick: we run around like headless chicken tongue.gif

And they're off! In early polling, Cirt leads the pack with 19 points, followed by Sandstein with 14 points, GeorgeWilliamherbert with 11, and the Review's own Lar with 10. The Porn Protectors have established themselves as the team to beat in the tag event, while the Review's own Ottava owns Miss Incongeniality with 12 votes, followed by IronDuke and Tarc with 6 each. The Vexatious Litigant race is wide open with the Review's own Abd leading Baseball Bugs, Cyclopedia and FT2 by a narrow margin. In the Straight Shooter event, Scott MacDonald née Doc glasgow looks unstoppable with Will Beback practically calling him a Scientologist at Wikipedia talk:Requests for arbitration/Scientology. And finally for Cojones de latón, perennial favorite Cla68 has an early lead, but MZMcBride is breathing down his neck with only a one vote margin between them. popcorn.gif

Gotta give Will beback points for trying? No. Maybe I am a Scientologist - or maybe I just don't think we should describe everyone who once went to a Scientology meeting as "evil cultist bastard" on their BLP?

Anyway, can I put in his early nomination for next year's "Vexatious Litigant"?

For sheer quantity of hatred and backstabby stuff, Cirt deserves the big win.

(Do you realize that not one of the past DICK winners has changed their behavior
in the slightest as a result of winning? It would be nice to think that people like SV,
Jayjg and JzG were eventually sanctioned partly as a result of winning, but you'd have
some real difficulty proving it. Being called a DICK, repeatedly, hasn't affected
Gerard in the slightest.)

I've got a feeling most of the top contenders are the types to see being reviled by WR as a 'badge of honor' or something. yecch.gif

At the close of the second day, Cirt still leads the pack with 25 points, followed by Georgewilliamherbert and Sandstein with 15 each. In the tag-team event, the Porn Protectors still maintain a 4 vote lead over the Climate Changers. Ottava still enjoys a comfortable lead over IronDuke for Miss Incongeniality, while Baseball Bugs has edged ahead of Abd for Vexatious Litigant, with FT2 now tied for second place. Scott MacDonald née Doc glasgow appears to control the Straight Shooter match, but for Cojones de latón, MZMcBride is now neck and neck with Cla68 in a real cliff-hanger.

On the other hand, note that David Gerard has actually backed Scott up. Time for a 5-minute moratorium on Gerard-bashing?
