When someone is awarded with UOTM, they will be spotlighted on the main page. The following is the basic format of their spotlight:

  • Their USERNAME, the DATE they first edited
  • If they are a bureaucrat, adminsitrator, rollback and/or chat moderator, include that and the DATE they were promoted
  • Include specific contributions, projects, etc. the user has been involved in
  • Include how they interact with the community and how much involvement they have in community discussion.



To nominate someone, use the following form:

  • 1. Replace USERNAME with the username of the person you wish to nominate in the box below.
  • 2. If that person has already been nominated, do not create another nomination page unless the nomination page is an archive, then you would add a "/2" or /"3" etc. after their name. (Example: USERNAME/2 or USERNAME/3)
  • 3. Click the button to create the nomination page.
  • 4. On the nomination page, state your reasons for why you believe the user you nominated should be awarded User of the Month.
  • 5. When you save the page, post the nomination to the Encyclopedia Quackeria:Nominations page so that all nominations are listed in one place.
