Blue check This page is considered an ignorable policy on Uncyclopedia.

It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow, unless they don't want to, in which case they are free to ignore it, in which case nobody will care. Please make use of the standing on one knee position to propose to this policy.

This page is where you can nominate, discuss, and vote for new Uncyclopedian awards. It used to be that awards could be created willy nilly, but as the number of Uncyclopedian awards increase, its becoming clear that a system for creating each award is necessary. If you create an award and you don't run it by here, or you do and it doesn't pass, do not fear! You may still make it a minor award and it still may be distributed to people, it will just not carry as much esteem (which as you may be able to tell is a big part of Uncyclopedia, along with seriousness and formality). Every major award however, must include the following:

  • A good image that isn't voted to be crappy bad
  • A template which doesn't break the layout of Uncyclopedia, or look really bad
  • A clearly defined purpose which differs in some way from another, already created/nominated award
  • A name and short abbreviation (usually an acronym) which doesn't conflict with any other awards

When voting for an award, the following must be decided:

  • What is the awards rank number?
  • What is the final image for the award?
  • What is the final template/caption for the award?
  • What is the awards purpose?
  • What is the awards name and abbreviation?

and finally

  • Whether you think the award should be created or not, just because

edit UN:REQ Award

Thumbs up2

This user created [{{fullurl:{{{1}}}|redirect=no}} {{{1}}}], an article originally requested on Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles. Good for them us!
  1. Awarded To People who have created an article from UN:REQ.
  2. Postfix {{reqaward|Article Name}}
  3. Nominated Some great articles have been created since its introduction four years ago. These include The Red Baron and Winfield Scott, two of my personal favorites, and I think these various writers deserve recognition for their contributions. Hopefully, this award might also encourage other editors to try taking on a request themselves.

I've made some basic maintenance templates in the past but this is my first award template. I'm still testing out some designs but this is the basic look for the template right now. I haven't really found an image which stands out but I thought I might as well put the idea out there and get some feedback. MadMax 05:18, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

edit No Bell Prize

In parody, or more in tribute to the Marvel Comics "No Prize" they used to give out during the 60's. Basically a picture of an empty medal box with the phrase Congratulations! You have won the Uncyclopedia No Bell Prize. We don't know why the hell you got this, but you should be damn grateful for it! Instead of an actual award that demands merit, this is, simply put, a vote for nothing that anyone can get. Nominate anyone you want and top votes gets it. It's basically just a senseless "piece of flair" to put on your profile. Much like most of Wikipedia's awards and medals. I don't do Photoshop, I'm just a writer. But I think the award should be blank, plain white, with just the text and an empty picture. --JohnQ.Public 13:50, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
