Hey guys!

We’re excited to announce the return of Member Awards this year! Let’s take this opportunity to show our appreciation for our fellow members and for the awesome contributions they make to this site!

Below are a list of categories to consider (many of them are different from last year’s.) You may submit two votes per category, via PM to me. Feel free to include a little comment about why you voted for those people! I may share some of those comments when I announce the award recipients at the end. ^^

Each member who votes will earn 2 points for their clan. The deadline for voting is Sunday, August 2, at 3:00 PM EST.

CATEGORIES
  • Clan Spirit Award: This award goes to a member who demonstrates continued passion and commitment towards their Clan (or towards the Clanless!) [As the recipient of this award in 2014, Deltan the Dramatic is not eligible to win.]
  • Lurker Award: This award goes to a member who has mastered the art of hiding stealthily in the shadows. [As the recipient of this award in 2014, Tawny779 is not eligible to win.]
  • Unpredictability Award: This award goes to a member who is constantly switching things up, always bringing new adventures to the Refuge.
  • Livin’ the Life Award: This award goes to a member who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in real-life endeavors.
  • Vidya Gamer Award: This award goes to a member who exhibits skill and passion for video games (bet you didn’t know this place was actually a video game fansite!)
  • Boundless Love Award: This award goes to a member who is definitely not afraid to share some luv.
  • Pun Master Award: This award goes to a member who excels at punishing us with their punny puns.
  • Little Dreamer Award: This award goes to a member who inspires us with their visions for the future – for themselves, for the Refuge, and/or for the world.
  • No Apparent Reason Award: This award goes to a member we all know and love…though for no apparent reason. They're just cool like that. [As the recipient of this award in 2014, Robert Joe is not eligible to win.]
Note: You may vote a member for multiple categories if you wish, but each member is limited to one award. If a member places first in more than one category, an award may be siphoned off to the runner-up in one of those categories.

I dunno, I think Antibody's a strong contender for the Lurker Award...

I wasn't expecting to see new categories, but I'm liking the sound of them. I'm especially digging the Little Dreamer Award.

How about adding more points for those who come from clans with fewer active people?

have a set points per clan then and divide them the active members is what you are saying ? I tried to do something similar for the clan battles thing.

Alright, then... Here's what I'm thinking. Each clan can earn an estimated/flexible maximum of 12 points for member award voting. Divide that total roughly by the number of active members in each clan:
- Each DF member can earn 2 points.
- Each TR member can earn 2 points.
- Each AE member can earn 6 points.
- Each SK member can earn 4 points.

I'm a little wary of the large difference, though. Will probably make AE +4 and SK +3 instead. Clanless members can donate mercenary points to you all.

I like it and the idea behind it. Having a max number of points does make it easier if a clan gets a surge in activity. Like if we got a 4th member active suddenly and got 16 points instead of 12

4 points for the SK should be fine.  There's a cap so we couldn't go beyond 12 anyway.

Still no Best Beard Award, though...maybe next year.

I don't have a beard yet... Also what about women? I don't think I was around for the one last year.

Women can grow beards, too. They just have to try extra hard.

But to acknowledge the discrepancy, we could apply a formula, say, divide the awesomeness of every man's beard by four before comparing all of them. Or, we could turn it into a creative competition and say that fake beards are allowed. x)
