Sixth Annual Halo Fanon Wikia Awards 2013
December 1st, 2013 — December 31st, 2013

Welcome to the Sixth Annual Halo Fanon Wikia Awards for 2013. We are honoured by your attendance to this annual community awards ceremony and celebration, the sixth, and hopefully, not the last of its kind. This project is coordinated by the Halo Fanon Wiki Administration, and we thank the Star Wars Fanon Wiki for donating the concept of this annual community ritual to us.

We look forward to your participation in this community-wide celebration, and hope that you will all participate! Now, read the regulations, nominate your favourite articles, and vote!

Regulations

  1. Nominations and voting begin at 12:00 AM midnight UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) on December 1st, 2013 and will conclude promptly at 12:00 AM midnight UTC on December 31st, 2013! Any exceptions to this are listed below. Final winners will be announced and receive their awards on January 1st, 2014!
  2. Voting Qualifications: Users eligible to nominate and vote must have been users for at least four weeks and have sixty or more mainspace edits in order to vote. Because of the style of this ceremony, sockpuppets and sock masters are not invited, and will be promptly banned from the Wiki and barred from future voting.
  3. Nominations:
    1. You may only nominate articles for a category so long as it expressly fits the definition of each category. Nominations that are not eligible for a category will be deleted or moved to the appropriate category by the administration. You may request a clarification about the definition of any category from Sonasaurus. You may not nominate an article for more than one category, with the exception of Best Canon Expansion and Most Unique Concept. Articles that are not eligible for nomination will be removed without any notice if they are found to have "content issues" ("Unrealistic", "Non-Canon Friendly", etc.)
    2. You may nominate an unlimited number of articles written by any number of other authors for any number of categories. However, you are restricted to nominating only one of your articles for only one category for the whole ceremony, and you cannot vote for your own article for the placement awards. This is to promote professional sportsmanship. For categories pertaining to users ("Best Writer of the Year", "Breakthrough User of the Year"), you may not nominate yourself.
    3. "Recycled" articles will not be accepted into the nomination process. An article that has received minor or no edits for the duration of the year is not eligible for the event. Every article's edit history will be checked when nominated, and will remain valid for nomination only if it has received moderate to major changes/improvements throughout the year.
    4. You must nominate articles according to the proper format (listed below). Fill out all the fields when submitting a nomination, and post the completed nomination form underneath the category that you're nominating the article in question for.
    5. Perceived breaches of good conduct and professional sportsmanship will be prosecuted by the administration to maintain the dignity of this voting system.
    6. The author of an article reserves the right to withdraw his or her own article from a nomination at any time, with or without given reasons.
    7. Eligible categories are decided in advance by the administration. If you have a suggestion for the addition or removal of a category, please discuss it with one of the administrators.
    8. Winning articles of the previous annual awards be nominated only if it's been improved upon drastically after receiving a previous award, for a maximum of three awards in separate years. This applies only to the articles, not the authors of the articles, who may only win the Best Writer or Breakthrough User award once. This does not mean that the article can only win three awards; for example, if an article can be nominated for the Best Canon Expansion category, along with its own category, and wins in the top three awards of the year, and does so for three separate years, the article in question can theoretically win nine awards in total (this is, however, highly unlikely).
  4. You are always allowed to contest in a category even if you won an article in that same category before with a different article.
  5. Voting:
    1. Eligible users may vote for a maximum of two articles in a given category, and may vote for up to two articles for placement awards. You may vote for only one of your own articles for the entire ceremony, no matter how many articles you have in how many categories. You may not vote for yourself under a user or placement category.
    2. Please sign your vote with a non-bubble text signature to verify your identity.
    3. You do not have to vote for an article you nominated.
    4. The voting process has two stages: categorical and placement. In the categorical vote, users will have from 12:00 AM UTC, December 1st, 2013 to 12:00 AM UTC, December 20th, 2013 to vote. Articles will be voted upon according to category, and the one article with the most votes from each category will be confirmed as the winner of that category and will be pitted against the other winners of the other categories (excluding collaboration, novel, short fiction, writer, and breakthrough user). The placement vote will begin at 12:00 AM UTC, December 20th, 2013 to 12:00 AM UTC and end on December 31st, 2013. All categorical and placement awards will be given on January 1st, 2014.
    5. Any categories with ties by 12:00 AM UTC on December 19th, 2013 (24 hours before the end of the categorical vote) will be remitted from public voting and will enter private administrative ballot to decide ties. The results of the ballot will be announced afterwards. All administrators with a registered email will have twenty-four hours to decide ties.
    6. Any articles with ties by 12:00 AM UTC on December 30th, 2013 (24 hours before the end of the placement vote) will be remitted from public voting and will enter private administrative ballot to decide ties. The results of the ballot will be announced afterwards. All administrators with a registered email will have twenty-four hours to decide ties.
  6. Winning:
    1. The article for the most votes in a given category will be formally acknowledged as the winner for the category, and the article and its author will be commended by an official award granted by the administration approximately by January 1st, 2014 and the end of the ceremony. Three winners from the placement vote will also be given their placement awards at the same time.
    2. In the event of a tie, a tiebreaker will be performed, and the winner will be decided by private administrative ballot. The ballot's content will be disclosed at the end of the ceremony.
    3. If an article is the only nomination in its category and receives fewer than five votes, it will be combined with another similar category after the voting process to avoid "winning by default", and votes will be counted accordingly.
  7. Questions: Please address Sonasaurus if you have any questions whatsoever.

Nominations and Voting

Characters

Annual Award Best Spartan Best SPARTAN of the Year

Joshua-G024 (Chakravartin)

Voting (7)
  1. Admittedly I always feel a little dubious after nominating one's own article, I do, however, believe that this article has done enough to deserve the award this year. It's been subjected to a massive re-write and almost everything has been updated and improved. Winning this award would be the icing on the cake of the massive re-write it's been subjected to. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 11:02, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
  2. No lie, I came to this page just now with the express intent of nominating this article. It's been overlooked for a long time in a painful irony seeing how I consider Josh to be one of the site's veteran Spartan characters. A very well done, in depth article and definitely deserving of the award. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. Josh has worked very hard this year to polish his Spartan until it shines. And just putting it out there right now, I hate rewriting my articles. Looking at all his efforts in doing so has earned my admiration and my unhesitating support for the Spartan of the Year award.
    50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 13:00, December 2, 2013 (EST)
  4. Though I haven't had much time to read through this article too deeply and I honestly liked Stel's writing style with Doug-103 a little more, I overall found this character much more interesting than the other nominated Spartans and for that reason it has my vote. (Samdoo (talk) 00:09, December 3, 2013 (UTC))
  5. I've watched Chak and his articles for many years now, and it's nice to see how this one has turned out. Good job sir. --Am I a Lion, or a Lamb? Or a Boy? Saint or Sinner? The Lost Books 03:30, December 7, 2013 (UTC)
  6. What can I say that hasn't been said?--Minuteman 2492 (talk) 05:46, December 14, 2013 (UTC)
  7. As per above. Through Darkness I Find Salvation

Leonid-144 (Spartan 501)

Voting (2)
  1. I've stated quite a few times my adoration for the Spartan-IIs of yore, the flagship characters that new users like myself stood in awe of, and given the massive overhaul 501 gave his member of the Leonidans in February of this year, I'm wholeheartedly in support of Leonid-144 as Spartan of the Year for 2013. That Damn Sniper 19:16, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
  2. All three articles nominated here are worthy of merit, though this is my personal favourite. A Million Stars StoneGhost - talk | contribs | email | articles

Doug-103 (Stellar Elite)

Voting (8)
  1. Stel's become a fantastic writer over his time here, and has really worked hard at Doug-103, revising it pretty heavily earlier this year and really made it gleam. I think it is the best SPARTAN article of the year, easy.
    Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   20:43, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Doug-103 is an interesting example of a Spartan. The image of the stoic supersoldier does not hold up here, which is a good thing as it shows that Spartans are capable of being more than just inhuman killing machines. They are people, capable of emotions and relations, something which many have emulated in recent times, myself included, but he was one of the first to do it, and it works wonderfully. User:Lieutenant Davis
  3. Well, this was a very tough choice, but I've decided that Doug wins my vote for Spartan of the Year. While Leonid's article is undoubtedly formidable, I personally feel that Doug is more unique as a Spartan character. I'm putting my vote here not because Stel has improved greatly as a writer, but because he has done a great job on this article, period.
    50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 17:37, December 2, 2013 (EST)
  4. An interesting SPARTAN who isn't a depressed brooding asshole, and is instead an asshole with a sarcastic sense of humor? Yes please. DemonsofHope »Anonymous ONI agent« [COMMS] [SERVICE RECORD]
  5. Huge heavy weapons guy: check. Hugh Jackman: check. Snark paired with loyal bravery: check. Excellent article, deserving of this award because of its cheeky yet honest language and appeal. Now then, can I be Mrs. Doug? ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.
  6. As per above.--Minuteman 2492 (talk) 07:21, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  7. Stel has put a massive amount of effort into Doug's article this year, I think after all this work it is truly deserving of the award. Brodie-001: Here to help
  8. 103's undergone a lot of revision since I last read him for Good Articles, and he's been out in the community and in stories through such things as Custodia and RED FLAG. That Damn Sniper 11:38, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

Annual Award Best UNSC Personnel Best UNSC Personnel of the Year

Melissa McKay (Sonasaurus)

Voting (8)
  1. A superlative effort by Sona as he expanded on one of the few bright sparks of The Flood and turned her into a well fleshed out and interesting individual. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 17:47, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
  2. As per the nomination. It isn't easy to make a canon expansion, and it's even harder to invest the time and effort required of a good article when your subject matter is canonically deceased, but McKay's article pulls it off. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  3. A great article, and well played canon expansion. In the wise words of Doge: "very good / much clever / such badass / wow.
    Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   20:57, December 2, 2013 (UTC)
  4. Per above. Through Darkness I Find Salvation
  5. I must admit, this article bugged me a little in that it was created with shooting for the award in mind. I know LOMI had the same in mind when he conceived of the fantastic Fell Justice, but as Character-category awards are usually much more sought-after than Locations, I thought the community should create the characters naturally and let the best rise to the top almost by accident. But reconsidering, that's what the Awards are supposed to do: give us something to shoot for, foster both collaboration and friendly competition, and the result has been an article of solid-metal awesome, with those occasional crossover collabs to boot. It's got my vote. That Damn Sniper 02:30, December 4, 2013 (UTC)
  6. Auguststorm1945 (Talk) 05:01, December 5, 2013 (UTC)
  7. As per AHS. DR
  8. As per all of the above! ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.

Richard Mack Sr. (Brodie-001)

Voting (4)
  1. A badass SPARTAN-I to compete against my ODST? How exciting! In all seriousness though, I can't believe I forgot to nominate this sooner. Richard Mack the first has always been one of my favourite characters that Brodie created (which is why I don't know why he didn't submit him for SotF in season 4). Great article, as well as the short stories that went with it to further his character. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 23:08, December 6, 2013 (EST)
  2. As per Sona. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 04:42, December 7, 2013 (UTC)
  3. As per Chakravartin (~ Samdoo (Talk) 04:51, December 7, 2013 (UTC))
  4. I very much like Sona's article, but I personally feel this one is the more imaginative. A Million Stars StoneGhost - talk | contribs | email | articles

Annual Award Best Sangheili Character Best Sangheili Character of the Year

Stel 'Vadam (Stellar Elite)

Voting (8)
  1. An already impressive article (and prior winner at that), Stel has dramatically increased and improved this article sufficiently to be nominated a second time. Auguststorm1945 (Talk) 06:02, December 9, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Not only has Stel doubled the length of this article since its first win in 2010, but he has worked very hard in giving the contents a massive overhaul this year. It's a testament to what a long way Stel's come as a writer, both in terms of creating high-quality articles, and the tenacity to polish them until they shine. This article is definitely deserving of the (slightly renamed) award this year. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 1:09, December 9, 2013 (EST)
  3. The Stellar'ness of this article has been doubled! Given what I have seen of the article, it is definitely deserving of a second HFFW. Great job, Stel.
    Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   06:13, December 9, 2013 (UTC)
  4. As per all of the above. ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.
  5. Another veteran character that truly deserves the award. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  6. All hail Admiral Stel!--Minuteman 2492 (talk) 07:24, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  7. As per above. User:Lieutenant Davis
  8. Stel's really made an effort to improve this article this year, it definitely deserves another win. Brodie-001: Here to help

Annual Award Best AI Best AI Character of the Year

Juno (Actene)

Voting (7)
  1. For those of you who don't know, Juno is the "sister" of the infamous Diana. But even without the relation, she's an interesting AI character in herself. Her influence on Simon's older brother Arthur as well as other parts of her story is an ideal demonstration of Actene's skillful fabrication of his territory in Halo Fanon.
    50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 13:26, December 2, 2013 (EST)
  2. Speaking as someone who has great difficulty writing AI characters, this is a great example of how you do it right. Juno has an interesting backstory and makes a great counterpart to Diana, who we all know and love. I'm looking forward to seeing her featured in future stories/RP's, and believe that it is deserving of the award. Brodie-001: Here to help
  3. Another outstanding example of Actene's writing ability, especially since (as per Brodie) writing AIs are exceedingly hard to do. Its a very intriguing article, and a fantastic read; and thus has my support.
    Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   08:15, December 7, 2013 (UTC)
  4. I wasn't sure what to think about Juno at first, but she's a well-rounded AI character whose influence reaches further than I expected it to. Much-deserving of this award. ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.
  5. I wonder how he ever came up with such an . . . inspiring, character. That Damn Sniper 05:32, December 14, 2013 (UTC)
  6. Dat Saber. Through Darkness I Find Salvation
  7. Auguststorm1945 (Talk) 14:21, December 19, 2013 (UTC)

Annual Award Best Third-Party Character Best Third-Party Faction Character of the Year

Jonathan Watts (Minuteman 2492 and Ahalosniper)

Voting (7)
  1. This is definitely one of Lancer's more original rebel characters, and there's no arguing the fact that he and Sniper have worked hard to make him an interesting one. The idea of a revenge-driven Insurrectionist who redeems himself by giving up his life to do the right thing is not only a fantastic one, but something that succinctly defines the underlying characteristics of a fundamental fidelity in one's own species that even the most bitter of insurgents will have. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 9:02, December 4, 2013 (EST)
  2. Lancer and Sniper's work here has created a great character that breaks the mould of some of the former's more typical rebels, and was a great read in all. Jonathan Watts is a wonderful example of a more sympathetic Insurrectionist character that has an intriguing story. I'd love to see him in more stories. Brodie-001: Here to help
  3. It's great to have a character you can love to hate, and then see them turn for the better for a cause greater than themselves. ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.
  4. Per above Through Darkness I Find Salvation
  5. Per as above. User:Lieutenant Davis
  6. Per the others. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together

Annual Award Best Unaffiliated Character Best Unaffiliated Character of the Year

Winston Zhou (Brodie-001)

Voting (7)
  1. When you read as much of Actene's stuff as I have, you'd think I'd have a hard time measuring up anyone else's mercenaries to his. But here Brodie really proves that he can really write one hell of a mercenary article. I'm beginning to sound like a broken record at this point, so I'll just say it's a fantastic article and let you decide on your votes :)
    50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 23:08, December 6, 2013 (EST)
  2. As above, a thoroughly enjoyable read and a great article. Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   08:15, December 7, 2013 (UTC)
  3. One of my favorite mercs on this wiki, and a well-constructed article to boot. ONI Seal 1 Strength through paranoia.
  4. When I get a new article kicked off, this is one of the pages I trawl through to see what I want to measure up to. Not to mention my desire to see assassins dominate this category for years to come. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  5. Per above. Through Darkness I Find Salvation
  6. I'm going to use my one self-vote for Winston, as out of all my characters this year I feel that he's the one I really enjoyed writing the most and tried my best to make as interesting as possible. Brodie-001: Here to help
  7. Auguststorm1945 (Talk) 14:20, December 19, 2013 (UTC)

Zoey Hunsinger (Actene)

Voting (6)
  1. Another Actene assassin, you ask? Why no, Zoey isn't an assassin, detailed more as a drifter - but she is still a very interesting character (as all of Actene's characters end up being), with her being uprooted from her life by Simon-G294 and dragged around the Universe. Actene has done substantial efforts on Zoey, as he does with all his articles; and is an obvious contender in the Best Unaffiliated Character of the Year.
    Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   06:45, December 10, 2013 (UTC)
  2. The dynamic that Actene sets for Zoey among his other characters makes for some very interesting stories. Although she's received several remakes, I find that she's only become more interesting as a whole. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 1:55, December 10, 2013 (EST)
  3. Per above. Through Darkness I Find Salvation
  4. As above.--Minuteman 2492 (talk) 07:22, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  5. As per above. User:Lieutenant Davis
  6. Actene's worked overtime to crank out a fantastic backstory for everyone's favorite little con artist-turned-captain. Atta girl. That Damn Sniper 11:41, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

Annual Award Best Starship Best Starship of the Year

UNSC Resurgence (FFG-3014) (Athena32)

Voting (9)
  1. There are areas which have yet to be expanded, but the extensive and consistent use of images really makes this article a worthy candidate. Reminds me of Leo Fox's UNSC Las Vegas from years back. That Damn Sniper 05:40, December 14, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Red links aside, Athena32 has done an excellent job with this article so far. The reference to one of Sniper's ZOD characters also makes for an interesting touch. This may be the fourth year running that Athena32 will win the Starship of the Year award, but as long as he continues to put out articles like this, I will vote for him every year if need be.
    50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 14:08, December 14, 2013 (EST)
  3. Well executed article, can't wait to see the end product. Far better than Las Vegas in my honest opinion. Scootaloo_Sig.png Scootaloo (Talk) (Contribs)   01:26, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  4. Two superlative articles deserving of the award. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 02:00, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  5. As per above.--Minuteman 2492 (talk) 07:26, December 15, 2013 (UTC)
  6. As per above. User:Lieutenant Davis
  7. Excellent writing and formatting, not to mention the use of great images. Actene: If This Is To End In Fire, Then We'll Burn Together
  8. A tough decision, but I think this one pulls through as a winner for me. Brodie-001: Here to help

  1. Davis's M324 kinda came out of woodwork, but certainly in a good way. He has poured some pretty serious effort into the M324 SPA, including adaption into a series of variants of the model. The M324 is professionally written and well thought out - and a sterling example of a Technological Article, especially given its his first serious effort into the Technical Article front. Excellent effort, Lieutenant Davis.

  3. This article certainly deserves an award - as someone who's self-admittedly technologically disinclined, it's enjoyable to read a Tech article that's not a mass of babble I can't quite digest.

  1. I think this is one of Lancer's shining moments here, for someone who usually writes character articles, he put out a very impressive tech article, and one pertaining to aviation, which for me at least, is significantly more difficult than a normal vehicle or system. For that he has my vote. User:Lieutenant Davis
  2. While I am quick to deplore Lancer's view of the rebels, this is an article that breeds plausibility of a rebellion desperately trying to reequip itself to face a new threat. Joshua (Talk) (Contribs) 05:50, December 14, 2013 (UTC)
  3. After a great deal of contemplating, I've decided to put my vote on Lancer's article. Don't get me wrong, both he and Colin have written rather impressive vehicle articles that have overtaken my usual expectations, but the thoughtfulness that has gone into this article has gotten my attention in particular. It's refreshing to see how Lancer can write such high quality material when he challenges himself to do something different from his usual assortment of rebel characters.

But the article itself read very well, and Ajax's flash diagrams are as great as ever. From what I can see, he put a lot of thought into this armour design, which is done quite creatively.

Annual Award Best Species Best Species of the Year

Saulosian (Another Poetic Spartan)

Voting (8)
  1. This category had me excited this year since there were two big contenders finally giving it some competition, and placing my vote between them was a difficult choice. Both have their strengths, with one being a wide, galaxy-level species that dominates an alternate universe while the other has the same appeal as many small articles with intriguing topics because of its small scale that could potentially fit in canon despite being an alien contact with humans before the Covenant. While I know finding images was a struggle for Leo, Vulpine is seriously wanting for them, but the way the article's references are formatted by implying a whole library of other texts about the subject really give it a feel of belonging in a wider universe. Ultimately, Saulosian emerged as my choice, but another voter might find their opinion differing. I encourage all users to read through both substantial articles and make the choice for themselves. That Damn Sniper 02:26, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Annual Award Unique Concept Most Unique Concept of the Year

Halo Party Time (Brodie-001)

  • Name: Halo Party Time
  • Author: Brodie-001 (and company)
  • Nominator: Leo Fox
  • Description: Halo Party Time is an interesting and amusing article on members of the Halo Fanon community, describing their "competent" and "highly effective" combat efforts against the Covenant - and themselves. However, this nomination is not just for the article itself: it is awarded to the concept that draws together of members of the community that 'Halo Party Time' and the multiplayer gaming represents - and the strengthening of the bonds of camaraderie and such.

Halo Party Time looks like a load of fun, and while this nomination for unique concept is somewhat unusual, I think, like my Red vs Blue: Revolution roleplay won the Best Collaboration award last year, this intrawiki event should be recognized for the way it brings its users together.

  1. Up until a while ago, 501 seemed to only show up briefly every few months to post one massive short story and disappear again, but what he posted would always be marvelous. I really found myself liking this story, with its inclusion of both The Rookie and a member of Gamma Company in one Spartan-IV team, paying attention and making use of the difference between them, and of course, having his flagship character show up to show just how such a capable S-II trumps the other generations. Very exciting, very deserving piece. That Damn Sniper 19:23, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Stel has certainly come a long way these last few years, and this year in particular I find he's proven exactly what an excellent writer he is now. He's been modest about his contributions this year by working quietly throughout 2013, but looking into what he's accomplished recently, I find myself impressed and pleasantly surprised by what I see. In addition to his part in writing RED FLAG with Brodie, he's worked on numerous articles and promising stories that reflect his hard-earned skills as a veteran user of Halo Fanon, such as Doug-103, Halo: Custodia, Stel 'Vadam, and Vadam Legacies: Warpath. I've also had the great pleasure of RPing with him in Red vs Blue: Revolution this year and last year, as well as making great headway in working together on his Clyde Dawson article.

  1. Brodie was the recipient of the 2012 Breakthrough User award for his remarkable contributions to Halo Fanon last year. I'm pleased to say that he hasn't slowed down this year. He's had a number of undertakings and accomplishments that have kept him on my radar, one of which was earning a position as an administrator for his impressive record as a writer and a member of the community. Although this award is strictly for writing, but I find he has no shortcomings in this instance. I'm putting my vote here because I'd say he and his RED FLAG co-writer, Stel, are deserving of the Writer of the Year award, and I'd like to wish them both the best of luck here. 50px-Vena.png Sonasaurus | Talk Contribs 23:08, December 6, 2013 (EST)
