50 From your host:

Welcome, everyone, to the fifth edition of the Avatar Wiki User Awards! It is my great honour and pleasure to host the awards this year, and I hope to continue the excellent precedent set by previous hosts in making this a wonderful and exciting experience for everyone. Since the last User Awards were more than five years ago, for many of you this will be your first experience, so welcome. We have snacks. And to those users thinking "wow, has it really been five years since the last awards, damn I'm getting old", welcome back and congratulations on making it this far.

While every year is special, this one is particularly so as we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the creation of the Avatar Wiki. This milestone was marked by the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to talk to Korra herself, Janet Varney, and I know many of you were tuned in live to watch and ask questions; the number of viewers on the live stream absolutely blew me away. I want to thank the amazing Lady Lostris for all the hard work she put in to make that a reality, and to Janet herself for giving her time for such a wonderful interview.

From that first click 15 years (and two days) ago, we have grown to become one of the largest and most respected wiki's on Fandom, but that doesn't happen without having an amazing community behind it. The success of the wiki is a tribute to every user that has at one time or another contributed to our articles, whether as an editor, a fanon writer, or a commenter. The collaboration of so many amazing people connected by their love of Avatar is what takes it from something good to something great. The User Awards, therefore, are a way to say thank you to everyone for the hard work, dedication, and effort they have given to the wiki. And, of course, a way to have some fun, which given how 2020 has shaped up, is something we can all do with more of. These awards are not about bragging rights or proving you are better than others. As in every aspect of the wiki, it is about positivity, about recognising people for their hard work and giving them a small thank you for it.

Let me end by saying thank you once again to everyone for making this the most amazing community and the most amazing wiki to be a part of. The past 15 years have created something special, and may it continue for many more.

White lotus tile.png How to nominate

To nominate a user, simply use the the following format to leave a comment: I nominate {{user|desired nominee}} for '''intended category'''. Users whose first edit was this year can be nominated for Most promising new user, and administrators of course cannot be nominated for Most likely to become administrator. To support someone else's nomination, simply reply to that initial comment by leaving a support comment using the {{support}} template (an additional explanation for why you support the nomination may be added as well).

Once a user is supported four times, the comment thread will be closed and the nominated user will be added to the nominees section of the respective category. You cannot 'oppose' a nomination. Once a category has five nominees, the nominations for that category will be closed. The nominations follow a "first come, first serve" system, meaning that the comment's time stamp will be used to determine who were the five nominees that each got four support votes the fastest. Once all of the category nominations are closed or two weeks after nominations were opened, voting will begin.
