Er, nominations count as a vote? I'm gonna have to remove three of those noms then. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 19:36, 18 Aym 2007 (UTC)

Can't be beretedbothered to log in... ps Is the voting over? I assume there should be some form of congratulatory-based fanfare? MetalFlower.jpg

Voting ends on 31st May. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 19:34, 24 Aym 2007 (UTC)

So I've won then?[edit]

well, I didnt want to say anything earlier incase votes were changed to spite me Testostereich(ballsack)

Yes. Congrats. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:50, 1 Yoon 2007 (UTC)

is there some sort of prize or do i just pat myself on the back and stop caring?--Testostereich 18:09, 1 Yoon 2007 (UTC)

Er, I have a pencil and a bit of blue tack if you want them. Sorry, the ?pedia budget only stretches as far as a few nicked paper clips and some ripped paper that's already been through the printer. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:12, 4 Yoon 2007 (UTC)

Starting Afresh[edit]

I think we should make this the last WOTM and start again with the Illogicopedian of the Month award - exactly the same but with people able to win more than once. You know , bring back the competition elemnt. what'd ya say? --Testostereich(ballsack) 16:16, 22 Jeremy 2008 (UTC)

I reckon we should just rename the thing and move the previous WOTMs to an archive. Alternatively, we could have a weekly award. We need community consensus, though. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 19:44, 22 Jeremy 2008 (UTC)


Three candidates so far for this month's award... I can't decide who to use my 2nd vote for! -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:36, 23 Farbleum 2008 (UTC)

HEY! THE USER SHOULD HAVE BEEN PICKED BY NOW1!! 11:05, 1 Arche 2008 (UTC)Ben Blade

Someone's quick ¬_¬ :P --Testostereich(ballsack) 11:07, 1 Arche 2008 (UTC)
I'd change it but I'm going out in a mo Testostereich(ballsack) 11:13, 1 Arche 2008 (UTC)


I can't keep track of this stuff, can someone poke remind me when the next nominations start? I'm going to nominate myself (I'll fail for sure, oh well) -- Ryan T. 11:13, 1 Arche 2008 (UTC)

I won?[edit]

Okay! Ryan 06:37, 5 Aym 2008 (UTC)


I forgot to update the page again. Thanks to the person that did it: Yop will be provided. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:37, 5 Aym 2008 (UTC)


Do I put that banana thing on my userpage? -- Ryan 23:07, 5 Aym 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you are free to use it and say: 'I was the Illogicopedian of the Month, so suck it'. Well, maybe not quite in those terms... -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 19:08, 6 Aym 2008 (UTC)


I'm a phantom now, right? --Evile.jpg Dxpenguinman, the Penguinman ...He's e-vile! Talk Got An Idea? Forum 07:27, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

That's correct, I promoted you to Phantom rank yesterday. Now go and do some poltergeist type stuff! :)-- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 09:55, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)
Yay, poltergeist type stuff is fun, especially throwing things at people's heads, like er...bricks? --Evile.jpg Dxpenguinman, the Penguinman ...He's e-vile! Talk Got An Idea? Forum 10:08, 3 Jumbly 2008 (UTC)

This is History![edit]


I can't be sure cos I haven't checked past voting, but this may be the first instance of somebody voting more than once for a nominee. History has been made! Plus, I call for a rethink of the voting system for next month's contest, cos as you said things can get confusing. I doubt the voting system has been changed since it was first drawn up. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:09, 4 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

I think if we flatten out the fact that people's votes dont count in full inless they state it, then thats clear enough, but its not the first time, we sorta forgot we could do it, I just wanted to give RFK a running chance, cus he is my choice, people puttin him down and stuff, i wanted to spur people who were not voting.--Silent Penguin 19:44, 6 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I think things are OK just a bit confusing with the weighting, as you just said. Maybe a reminder about the vote allocation and perhaps giving a reason why you're voting more than once for the same person would suffice, but I just think those voting regulations seem a bit long winded... -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 09:36, 7 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
To be honest I think that stuff should be abolished and each user, regardless of status, had only one vote. ColourfulMetalFlower.jpgMMF!talk←/→admin(:D) 10:48, 7 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Maybe MMF has a point. This inequality is perhaps no longer relevant these days: we've got a much larger userbase and that rule was drawn up to get features on the main page faster, make sure there wasn't vanity voting/sockpuppeteering etc. As I said to MMF, we don't want to promote a 'them and us' mentality. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:26, 7 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, you put it better than me, Hindley :P. We're not Uncyc after all! Each user is as entitled to his/her contributions as we are, no more, no less. ColourfulMetalFlower.jpgMMF!talk←/→admin(:D) 11:28, 7 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Zaki-ly. I personally don't vote more than once these days but I have in the past. I reckon we should at least give admins unlimited nomming abilities and let users be limited to like, one or something to avoid sock voting etc. Then, we could wipe the slate for next month and say it's one vote per user as with VFF, FI etc. Vot say you, Seppster? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:31, 7 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
OK, from this moment on, one vote per user INCLUDING PHANTOMS. New rule, no favouritism. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:44, 2 Novelniver 2008 (UTC)

Ummmnnn gaiuse[edit]

Okay, sorry about the crappy title. Anyways, what's up wiv dis ting? Should of been changed haggis ago.--Ben Blade 09:01, 8 Arche 2009 (UTC)

Due to in-hack-tivity, the IOTM votes have been two months instead of one, Maybe if people, edited and stuffs then this would do better too ;) --Silent Penguin 14:50, 8 Arche 2009 (UTC)

We've got a slight problem m'thinks[edit]

We're running out of people to nominate for this. I think we should find a way to recruit some new people to the wiki. ~ 04:54, 4 Aym 2009 (UTC)

This much is true, but I can think of who might win for the next two months and I daresay someone else will be along here and making constructive edits and crap by then. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:51, 4 Aym 2009 (UTC)
I sure hope so. We haven't got too many in a real long time. ~ 23:08, 4 Aym 2009 (UTC)

So what happened?[edit]

Did Gino win? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:40, 1 Serpeniver 2009 (UTC)

see for yourself lackey, you have a mouse don't you? Testostereich(ballsack) 11:51, 1 Serpeniver 2009 (UTC)
Nah, the cat caught and ate it. Come on, you set yourself up for that one ;) -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:41, 4 Serpeniver 2009 (UTC)


There's no apparently about it :P Testostereich(ballsack) 21:17, 16 Jeremy 2010 (UTC)

I winned award?[edit]

I winned award? I was not notified of this! --(ƒî)» 20:45, 18 Jeremy 2010 (UTC)

Nah, I think IllogiZoo is worse :P -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:52, 10 Ergust 2011 (UTC)

Did You Know...[edit]

That 2011 was the first year in which every month had a winner of IOTM. Geeky, but pretty uninteresting nonetheless. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:17, 3 Jeremy 2012 (UTC)


Nah. --Silent Penguin 23:40, 3 Arche 2012 (UTC)

Yah.--Noodles2.jpg (Talkies) (artikles) 23:45, 3 Arche 2012 (UTC)
It's either Raggle or Mitt Romney. Take your pick.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 23:49, 3 Arche 2012 (UTC)

18 USC § 1030.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 23:58, 3 Arche 2012 (UTC)
In dire situations of lazyness such as these, as a rule of thumb, we don't give a shit and pretend the month is 60 days long. --Silent Penguin 00:21, 4 Arche 2012 (UTC)

Jan 2014[edit]

It's a tie between Flutter and Kate. Is someone going to break it or are we just going to give it to both of them? --Mars Cadbury (talk) 01:11, 3 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)

Give it to Flutter per our IRC discussion about Kate and because Flutter is actually around.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 21:17, 3 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Never mind that actually, Snarglefoop broke the tie. Flutter can win now.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 21:31, 3 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Yay? But whatever happened to tht katie user? Also haven't seen Roberto around either —Flutter ₧s: over 9000 clap.gif 23:08, 3 Farbleum 2014 (EDT)
Kate is currently trying to bring traffic into the dilapidated ghost town that is Wackypedia. Roberto maybe gone but his spirit lives on in our hearts and sporadic server errors. --Mars Cadbury (talk) 03:49, 4 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, I'll stop poking the innards of the database in a bit. It's just that I have a stick, and it's so damn fun... -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 04:29, 4 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)

Updating for Feb[edit]

Do we just delete the old votes when a winner is chosen and the next month arrives? --Mars Cadbury (talk) 11:15, 4 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)

That's what we do on uncyc, so it's probably what we do here as well. And we archive the stuff on some page.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 21:47, 4 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Also it says the latest winner of IOTM is Awesomedecks, which is Do we fix that?  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 21:49, 4 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Yes. And I would change it and all, but unfortunately I don't know how, so any help would be appreciated. --Mars Cadbury (talk) 10:56, 6 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Do whatever seems right. Declare a winner. Hide the evidence. Declare several three months ago if you want. Nobody's going to look too closely. Unless they do. -— Athyria User talk:AthyriaUser talk:AthyriaUser talk:Athyria 00:40, 6 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
It seems simple enough to me - just say Flutter instead of Awesomedecks, maybe write a different blurb.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 16:01, 6 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Well, it is not quite as easy as simply editing the main page; I needed to know what template was being used for that part of the main page. But I think through bumbling curiosity I figured it out. --Mars Cadbury (talk) 16:21, 6 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Right. Glad you figured it out then.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 16:30, 6 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)
Just for the record is it {{Template:FeatWriter}} for anyone who doesn't know. I'll let Flutter get the chance to write his own blurb if he wants. --Mars Cadbury (talk) 16:35, 6 Farbleum 2014 (UTC)

"You've all done very well!"[edit]

It is hard for me to think of someone to nominate for IOTM because pretty much all our regular editors have been doing such great jobs. --Mars Cadbury (talk) 17:40, 25 Aym 2014 (UTC)


How did I get to the point where I'm likely to become Illogicopedian of the Month? felis lupis (talk) 20:38, 23 Farbleum 2017 (UTC)

...wait, are those votes even for the next nomination, or were they just left there? felis lupis (talk) 20:44, 23 Farbleum 2017 (UTC)
No, these votes are for February. 00:23, 24 Farbleum 2017 (UTC)
...but are they relevant or not? felis lupis (talk) 16:33, 1 Arche 2017 (UTC)
It seems to be so. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 22:50, 1 Arche 2017 (UTC)

Congratulations on your IOTM. Frunobulax, my wife and I would like to have a hyena roast in your honor, but it's illegal in Massachusetts. Thank you for your service. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 01:19, 2 Arche 2017 (UTC)

Hyena roast? Would you eat it? Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 01:31, 2 Arche 2017 (UTC)
Well, I guess I'm legally obligated to say this now... thanks. felis lupis (talk) 19:18, 2 Arche 2017 (UTC)
One: I think some things (e.g. a template or two) need to be updated. Two: please don't make me eat hyena. felis lupis (talk) 19:24, 2 Arche 2017 (UTC)
No, we wouldn't make you eat that. We could do a celebratory marijuana infused scorpion canapés presentation with deviated septum. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 00:11, 3 Arche 2017 (UTC)

Exactly. As for polar bears, that's an anachronism. Not for 36.721 million years has Antarctica been on the Equator. XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 03:17, 2 Yoon 2017 (UTC)
