Community Awards - October

I think it would be great for the community to hold monthly award ceremonies.

Players may be nominated for an award during the calendar month. Nominations close sometime on the last day of each month. Poll’s to determine who receives the award will run for the first week of the new month.

Nominations will be vetted by the awards team - just me until some others join.

Eg, for October’s awards: Nominations close sometime on 31st October. The poll will be active until sometime on 7th November.

Prizes may contain multiple components:

  1. Financial
  2. Material
  3. Bragging Rights

Winning players must have a PRO license in order to receive financial and material components.

I’m also looking for other donors to set aside some money or materials for current awards or to get some more awards set up.

I’ll kick it off with a couple awards:

October Nominations


PrUn’s Player of the Month (October, 2020)

Prdgi Prize for Community (October, 2020)

Catfizzing in the Grave (October, 2020)

  • McCowan
  • Dirk_Diggler (per donor’s condition)

I have had great help and support from Dover, Iridium, th3krack3n and 777 in trading, loans/payment terms and expanding. Because of them I have several bases and a profitable organisation. Tex has been a solid presence supporting all. I hope all are considered and so I nominate them. I do think this should be open to all players, not simply the most active, powerful or wealthy, so I hope that is taken into account. Also, does there need to be a wooden spoon/shipment of NA award for the most anti-community spirited individual… at the risk of making it desirable. I’m not sure financial rewards for doing notorious things is a great idea.

It most certainly is open to all players - there would be no point otherwise. The PRO license requirement is there because the only way we could transfer funds or material is via LM trades.

We most certainly could have a “wooden spoon” style award too. Prize could be 1 unit of NA located on the temple planet RL-716g so that you can pay your penance to @molp.

Prdgi - Not sure which category…but I have been helped tremendously on Katoa government upkeep by Kapusta. He has been a tremendous supporter of the Populous buildings, donating both construction and upkeep items.

Katoa wouldn’t be anywhere near as good of shape as we currently are without Kapusta’s contributions, and I would like to recognize him for it!!

Prdgi - Also…Vooch nominated McCowen in the Discord for the map hosted at http://prosperous.freecluster.eu

You asked for someone to copy that over into this thread…and I am doing so via this post.

I believe that should be for the “Player of the Month” — that map is definitely noteworthy. I also think McCowen is less than 5 months.

I think that would qualify for the " Prdgi Prize for Community". Please correct me if this assumption is incorrect.

That nomination would qualify for all 3 current awards then.
