Topic: Introduction

This forum will be for posting awards once we've concluded how awards will be given out. I'll open up several threads in the near future.

Re: Introduction

Here is the "official" copy of the Awards System (this was originally posted here). Any and all comments are welcome.

That there be an Awards Committee of three members, appointed by the GC, who will collect nominations from all players for various awards listed below, and the committe would vote on who to award. Committee members must abstain on votes where their names have been nominated and will be replaced on the Committee for that vote by the GC, or in the event the GC is also on the ballot, first any elected official and after any appointed officer that qualifies (ie, they are not on the ballot).

It is understood that SLs have the power to grant ad hoc awards to their players ("Badass Browncoat", "Nerf Herder", "Picard's Favorite Redshirt", etc.) at will, and groups of SLs remain empowered to talk together about area level award, but that at this time, only site level awards are officially recognised.

In addition, an ASL or majority of players in a sim may decide to award the SL for a sim level award (where an SL may not necessarily give themselves such an award).

List of (site level) Awards and how they're decided:
Player of the Month. Issued monthly. Any Phoenix member should be able to nominate a player for this Award. Nominations would be submitted to the Awards Committe by the last day of the month, who would then vote on the nominees and announce the winner by the 10th day of the following month. The Awards Committee would email SLs at the start of each month to invite them to post a note in their sims encouraging players to submit nominations. It is not required for a nominator to state why they feel the nominee worthy of this award, though doing so may assist the Committee in reaching their decision.

Sim of the Year. Issued yearly, in December. Any Phoenix member may nominate a sim for this award in November. Criteria may include objective (i.e. quantitative criteria like number of posters (over the entire year) combined with the number of posts) or subjective (i.e. quality of the sim). It is not required for a nominator to state why they feel the nominee worthy of this award, though doing so may assist the Committee in reaching their decision.

SL of the Year. Issued yearly, in December. Any Phoenix member may nominate a Sim Leader for this award in November. Criteria may include objective (i.e. quantitative criteria like number of actively posting players under the nominated SL over the year) or subjective (i.e. welcoming quality of the sim area). It is not required for a nominator to state why they feel the nominee worthy of this award, though doing so may assist the Committee in reaching their decision.

GM of the Year. Issued yearly, in December. Any Phoenix member may nominate a GM for this award in November. Criteria may include objective (i.e. quantitative criteria like number of posts in the nominated GM's sim) or subjective (i.e. depth of realisation of role-play environment in the GM's sim) or broad criteria like the number of sims consistently successfully GMd by the nominee. It is not required for a nominator to state why they feel the nominee worthy of this award, though doing so may assist the Committee in reaching their decision.

Special GC Award. Issued at most 4 times a year, at any time. This is an award given out by the GC at his or her sole discretion, to recognize special achievements by a member in contributions to Phoenix and its community. Any member can nominate someone for a GC award, or otherwise bring the contribution to the GCs attention, but the GC has final say in distributing such awards.

Badges of Honour and how they're decided:

  • Yearly membership badges (for 1 Year's Membership, 2 Years' Membership, and so on). These will be unique for each year.

  • SL badges (for those who are running/have run a sim; one for each sim).

  • GM badges (for those who are GMing/have GMed a sim; one for each sim).

  • Coordinator and Officer badges (for those who hold/have held an official coordinator/officer position; one for each position).

  • Badges to recognise multiple sim involvement (2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 sims played in, etc). Sim involvement is defined as having a character accepted into a sim and at least one in character post.

Each badge will be unique so as to easily be identifiable.
Yearly membership badges will be a star. Multiple stars indicate multiple years.http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/yusuke-kamiyamane/fugue/16/asterisk-small-icon.png
SLs will be indicated by a horizontal bar. http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/deleket/sleek-xp-basic/32/Gold-Bar-icon.png
GMs will be indicated by a vertical bar.
Appointed officers will have chevrons. http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/yusuke-kamiyamane/fugue/16/chevron-expand-icon.png
Active duty elected officials will be a shield: http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/pixelmixer/basic/32/shield-icon.png
Those having held office (but no longer in office) will use a circle or roundel: http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/mysitemyway/clean-3d/32/glossy-3d-blue-shield-icon.png
Those who have held office for multiple terms will receive additional bands of circles around the outside of their badge.


Badges will require no vote, but will be awarded when the specific requirements for the badge are reached (as outlined above).

Re: Introduction

The two proposed awards have been added to the awards system, in that the first would be a special GC award, and the second would be a sim level award awarded to the SL, nominated by the ASL or majority of players (or GM).
