Editor of the Month is a program on Gamepedia designed with the intent of publicly recognizing the top editors across our wiki platform. Wikis are almost entirely driven by the passion and devotion of you, the community, and we're always looking for ways we can show our appreciation for all your hard work. This page also covers the Editor of the Year award.
Each month, we will invite the entire community to submit nominations for the Editor of the Month. These nominations will be preserved from month to month, so if you nominate an editor (or yourself) once, they will continue to be considered each time we choose a new Editor of the Month. Each month the winner will be chosen by the Gamepedia team sometime around the middle of the month and announced a little later on after we've had a chance to contact the winner. Each winner will receive an engraved trophy and box of goodies as a token of our appreciation. Winners were also interviewed, if willing, although interviews were discontinued between June 2016 and April 2018, and then again after September 2018.
How to nominate
Nominating someone is easy! Just fill out this form and we'll consider that person for the Editor of the Month. You may self-nominate if you feel you are deserving of the award and self-nominating will not affect your chances of being chosen. Please do try to fill out the nomination form as completely as possible though, as it will greatly assist us as we make our selections.

Editor of the Year
The Editor of the Year is a concept that was first introduced in 2018. The recipient is named in December from the monthly winners of the Editor of the Month within a year and recognizes their contributions throughout the whole year.
- 2020 - AttemptToCallNil - ATCN has done great work for the Gamepedia community as it relates to the UCP and tracking it for the community. Their help articles are widely used by the community and are greatly appreciated. ATCN has also provided a ton of Lua help to the esports wikis, but also to anyone who needs it on the Fandom/Gamepedia Discord server.
- 2020 (Esports) - Thrust216 - This past year, Thrust has taken the lead in our roster-change-conversion project, manually updating the input format of all our roster changes dating back the past decade on the wiki. In addition to converting tons of them himself, he's trained new people on how to use the system and also helped to shape the design of a large number of facets of the new system. Thrust also monitors the script that populates daily Global Contract Database changes and edits pages as needed, in addition to informing of any lapses in the system.
- Aside from roster changes, Thrust has covered or helped to cover several leagues: EBL, Hitpoint Masters, Spanish 2nd Division & Amateur Scene, OPL (RIP), and LCL. He also generally helped out with creating and updating pages on the wiki as changes happened. Without the help of automated tools, Thrust frequently made 50-100 or more edits daily throughout the year.
- 2019 - Frisk - For the tireless work on Discord and with GRASP.
- 2019 (Esports) - FigoHSV - For outstanding work over the past year, helping with every aspect of the LoL Esports wiki from live coverage to the new roster change updates
- 2018 - MarkusRost - To acknowledge the incredible impact Markus has had in all things Gamepedia, from wiki editing to administration to GRASP to Slack to Discord to Twitch to Wiki-Bot.
