Don't add unsourced opinions and non-notable awards to this[edit]

Otherwise this will be a very bad encyclopedia article. Sharksaredangerous (talk) 23:43, 24 February 2010 (UTC)


Can someone please explain how The Webcomic List Awards are not notable enough to make the list when three of the people involved are notable enough to have their own articles? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.71.70.36 (talk) 01:10, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Also The Webcomic List website itself has been used as a reference multiple times without those references being rejected. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.71.70.36 (talk) 01:27, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Hello, good questions. See Wikipedia:Notability and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/The Webcomic List for help in understanding why this award made up on a web forum, given out only twice in six years, and that has attracted zero coverage by reliable sources is inappropriate for this encyclopedia. Judging by available sources, this is a very insignificant award, even compared to some of the minor awards on this list. And it is because of a lack of significant coverage in reliable sources that the information you are attempting to include will always be full of problems, including the claim that this "award" began in 2009 when this "award" was given out in 2004 (which was again such an insignificant event that neither you nor any reliable sources noticed). Not only will writing articles based on reliable sources help avoid such factual errors, it will help avoid using unattributed viewpoints like "A 2010 Webcomic List Awards is thought to be going ahead." To answer your second question, using The Webcomic List as a source in other articles is a problem because this type of self-published, unreliable source should not be used. Thanks, Starblueheather (talk) 15:38, 2 July 2010 (UTC)
I would like to point out that the Webcomic List Awards 2010 are currently in progress, so your argument about unattributed viewpoints is now irrelevant; also the 2 awards in 6 years thing, since this is the third in 7 now. I suppose. Though not having any knowledge of who was involved in the 2004 awards (aside form, presumably, the website owner Ash Young), and being myself on the Committee both for the 2009 and the 2010 awards (not to mention a judge and a forum moderator - feel free to look me up, name's Chilari), I personally don't count the 2004 awards as being part of the same thing, particularly since the categories are very different and the judging system is different - from what I can gather, the 2004 awards seem to have been entirely based on reader votes, whereas the 2009 and 2010 awards are based on votes by those involved in webcomics in some way to reach a shortlist of nominees, and these are judges by volunteer judges. As for notability, well, I'll have to concede that one for now, but we're working on it. However, I would also like to point out that Wikipedia is based on the idea of user-created and edited content and this means that some pages are somewhat lacking in references, coherence, relevance and frequently decent grammar. The lack of none of these things have prevented an article from being considered notable enough to remain. Many of the nominated comics, such as Questionable Content and Gunnerkrigg Court have their own pages, and in fact the Webcomic List Awards are mentioned on the Gunnerkrigg Court page under Reception, so any mention in this page of the Webcomic List Awards would not be without links from other pages. But of course if it's still not considered "notable" enough for Wikipedia, well, as I say we're working on it and I'll be back when we've gained notoriety.

Looking back on this six years later, I highly agree that the Webcomic List Awards shouldn't get covered in the same way as other awards do (though one can wonder if the Web Cartoonists' Choice Awards should). However, I definitely think it's worth its own paragraph, seeing as various types of reliable sources have discussed it. Looking outside of the regular news articles, I have read that the creators of Sandra and Woo collaborated on it as a response to the WCCA being discontinued, and the Joe Shuster Awards blog has responded to the award as well. It's a fairly interesting topic, and I'm personally sad it didn't continue in 2011. The 2004 thing... may as well be forgotten, I suppose. The best source I found on it was a badly-written Comix Talk blurb. ~Mable (chat) 13:15, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

Cartoonist Studio Prize[edit]

I want to add the Cartoonist Studio Prize to the page since they have a category for webcomics. [1] [2] It's presented by the Slate Book Review and the Center for Cartoon Studies. Not sure what section it would go under, though. Oornery (talk) 07:42, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
