Official nominations for 2008

Cajek (TalkContribs (del)EditcountBlock (rem-lst-all)LogsGroups)

Score: +9
  • Nom. Cajek is crazy. Cajek is the craziest loon on this site, and has written more articles this year than Saturn's rings have little pieces of rock. He never writes the same way twice, and has executed some of the wackiest, most hilarious first-person monologues that I've ever read. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:09, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Um Downright one of the best people on the site - a great writer and even more a great person who really made this a great place to be. He probably deserves this for that Japanese opera thing alone buuuuuut I can't decide between hiiiim aaaaannddd... --Sir DJ ~ Irreverent Icons-flag-au Noobaward Wotm Unbooks mousepad GUN 14:44, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • For per above. --Mnbvcxz 21:42, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • For Fuck you TKF for nomming him before me. Cajek has been the living example of an Uncyclopedian writer this entire year, but I don't think we should hold that against him. My mind was made up months ago on this, and he still kept producing quality. -RAHB 03:15, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • I think WotY is the hardest thing to vote for on Uncyclopedia. Hell, choosing a President wasn't this hard. Cajek is one of my favorite writers on this site. I've seen every aspect of his freakish talent, both on this site and off of it. He's smart. He's talented. Most of all, he's fucking hilarious. Never does the man cease to make me laugh. His wit is that of one you could only find on a site like this. And yet...I'm not voting for Cajek. Every single nominee thus far deserves this award, and yet I can only cast one vote. Cajek, if you decide to come back to Uncyc and read this, know that I love you, buddy. In the butt, that is. Sir SysRq (talk) 03:55, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • ...shit. SysRq's right, this is a tough choice. Mhaille, Modus, So So, the Cap'n, so many of these guys are amazing writers. This year, though, has belonged to Cajek right from the start. He's consistently hilarious, every time he writes, and despite being on a bit of a hiatus right now, he deserves this. For. - T.L.B.

  • For Cajek is my far one of the most creative, brilliant users I've ever seen on my extremely procrastinative (is that even a word?) life on this site. Oh, and also, literally everything SysRq said I could also say in equal measures. Except the not voting part. 25px-Faglogo.pngtalk 11:38, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

  • As much as I'd love to vote for that Mhaille guy, or even MO, or the superslick writing machine that is PP, Cajek has been a busy boy this year. He was one of my nomination for UOTY, the fact that he is still in the running for WOTY as well shows his worth and his talent. For. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

  • Nom. Here's the man whose taught several fantastic writers, including one directly above him, everything he knew, and in the process created talented monsters. Not only is he an incredible writer whose written three of my all-time top five favorite articles, but he has a knack for spreading his love to his dedicated wing of protégés, too. Aside from fantastic writing, the most important characteristic of a fantastic writer is his influence, and TLB's influence is widespread and evident. Plus, he's a fantastic writer. He gets a nod from me. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:09, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Speech No. 2: TLB is easily among my favorite writers. I'll admit that I was nervous when he was opped, fearful that perhaps this unstoppable deluge of hilarious articles would subside and eventually dry up, as seems to happen with many good writers that are given bansteeqs. This was not the case with my funny, inflatable friend. Instead, he has mastered both parts of himself, and has become something more. It was an honor writing with him, and through that experience I learned more about just what kind of writer he is: a great writer. I'm not voting for Leddy, although it pains me not to. I love you, brah. In the butt. Sir SysRq (talk) 03:55, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
  • For I recognise his name, therefore he must have been in the edit history of an article I like --Veggieburgerfish 23:26, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

Mhaille (TalkContribs (del)EditcountBlock (rem-lst-all)LogsGroups)

Score: +18
  • Nom. Ever classy, ever prolific Mhaille. He's been the top banana on this site for three years, both as a writer and as an Uncyclopedian, and in this time he's hardly ever let up. Some people may excel at being crazy or unusual, but Mhaille's wit rarely falls down into the gutter. Even when he's writing his patented tasteless articles, his articles still exude a thick air of classiness, and executes the tastelessness in the most clever way you've ever seen. He's funny, highly versatile, and going strong since 2005. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:10, 1 January 2009 (UTC)
    • Eh... hate to be a jerk, but I'm changing my vote to for Mhaille, seeing as TLB's pretty much a lost cause, and if not him, I'd like to see Mhaille win this instead. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 22:29, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
  • For the longest time, I was a stand-off observer of Mr. Mhaille. A bit of a secret admirer, if you will. I saw that this great force on Uncyclopedia that has carried this site for so long truly deserved everything he had earned. This is the personification of passion: Mhaille's full of it, and he shows us this in his writing. Recently, I have gotten to know Mhaille a little better through random encounters and whatnot. This has only furthered my view of him as both a strong pillar for the community, and an unstoppable force as a humorist. He's got it all. Mhaille's a great guy, a great op, and a great writer. I'm not voting for Mhaille. But if I'm writing nice little speeches for Cajek and Leddy, then Mhaille is just as deserving of my respect. I love you, man. Butt.

  • If I could, I'd split my vote 50/50 between him and Modus, I would. And then I'd still have to give serious consideration to Cajek and Led. As I can't, however, after several minutes thought on the subject, I figured that Mhaille's articles consistently made me laugh more than anyone else's have done. Just. Add in the fact he's been going as long as anyone, and I'm going to have to vote for Mhaille. It's a ridiculously close race though. –—Hv (talk) 2/01 16:24
  • I seriously thought he won this award years ago. I was a bit amused that he was up for it again - deserving as he still is of it - until I just realized that he had never won it in the first place. Anyway, that should be changed forthwith, as Mhaille has not only been writing good articles and whatnot all year, but also last year, and the year before, and the year before, and the year before, and the year before. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 23:13, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

  • I know, this is getting real old (unless you have tl;dr'd my other speeches) for y'all, but there are just so many great nominees this year. However, this is my man. Modus is forever a symbol of genius in my mind. Everything from his talk page banter to his most recent articles and images demonstrates just how fucking funny this silly Canadian is. Modus is just one of those users that has always been here, has always been writing comedic gold, and is just fine with or without recognition. I've never seen him tire, I've never seen the quality of his works slip in the least. He's consistent. He just never runs out. Of the three other nominees I have taken the time to recognize, two have been ops. What Modus has in common with those ops is that they all are great at everything that they do. Modus gets things done, and still has time to write. He's a powerhouse, and is my ideal Uncyclopedian that I someday hope to be. I think we all aspire to be Modus in some form. As a writer, he is unstoppable, and it is for that reason that he has my vote. I love your butt. Sir SysRq (talk) 03:55, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
