Voting will commence immediately after, until midnight, end of day Sunday 13th December
The ceremony will then take place on Saturday 19th, at.....1600 server(? any objections?) At a location yet to be decided (suggestions welcome).


To clarify why forum polls arent being done for this, because then people would know the results before they were awarded [img]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif[/img] suprise is good.

Vote collectors....i'll go find people, i'll announce them by the time voting starts, which isnt yet, and votes must go to all vote collectors (which i'll remind about again when it comes to then).



LE: Because of stupidity, i add that you cannot nominate yourselves for awards
*removes iab's post*
IaB has also been disqualified from voting and being nominated for trying to nominate himself

Take it as a given you cannot: this is not [i]Lord of the Flies[/i] or [i]Heart of Darkness[/i]. Civilization goes only so far as you are willing to carry it, you feculent barbarian. If you behave as a savage, expect to be treated as one.

And here I was thinking that Mr. Kurtz would fit in perfectly with MD: brutal, clever, and entirely crazy. My mistake.

As far as the nominations go, as happened last year, one cannot nominate any of their own characters; all nominations must come from another with a complete disqualification penalty for those who choose to try to circumvent this rule.

In regards to the above post:

I'll take the first bit and apply that, the other two bits are said more eloquently than i did, and also apply.

wait... but i didn't try to nominate myself for all of them.... i skipped 3.....and you hadn't stated we couldn't nominate ourself when i posted, the first post said nothing of not being able to nominate ourself, thus i think i should still be allowed to get nominated, even if i can't vote.......

      Some unexpected bits and pieces came up so I wasn't able to release this when intended, however here it is, I have changed the schedule to reflect a delay.
       
      By a difference of one, Most Improved Player was added as a new category, whilst retaining Rookie of the Year. So below is a list of categories, please go ahead and nominate accordingly!
       
      Please be aware of the following when Nominating:
      - You may not nominate those who belong to the same land as yourself (this not only means hard-coded, but also those people considered part of certain lands). "This is an MD awards event, if a person deserves one of the awards, it is on the global level, not on local level, however capable the person is, which justifies the ban of the land nominations , possibly votes too". If you note nominations slipping through this, please let an organiser know.
      - There will be a minimum of 3 players nominated for each category, no maximum.
      - Past winners will be allowed to be nominated again
      - You may only nominate one person per category. If you nominate multiple people, none will be added.
      - You may not nominate yourself, or another account you play.
      - No editing posts in the nomination thread - purely because I'll potentially get confused.
      - To be nominated a player must be active, they must have had an observable presence within/throughout the year.
       
       
      Adventuring Award
      For the person most dedicated, or who perseveres most at quests. Not necessarily for completing, or winning the most.

      - Neno Veliki [Aethon]
       
      Champion Fighter
      For the person considered to be the best fighter in the realm, this does not necessarily have to be the strongest fighter in the realm, but the one that uses the combat system to the best effect.
      - Asthir [Aeoshattr, MaGoHi, Dark Demon]
      - Clock Master [Sunfire]
      - Eon [Chewett]

      - Sunfire [Dark Demon]
       
      Helper of the Year
      For the player deemed to have been the most helpful. The area of helpfulness the player focusses on can vary. The voter should realise that even though they may not get on with, or have been helped by one of the nominees, this does not mean that the player is not indeed helpful.
      - Asthir [dst]
      - Sunfire [Syrian]
      - Syrian [Aethon]
       
      Most Addicted
      For the player who just can't leave MD for more than a minute without needing a fix.

      - Nadrolski [AmberRune]

    • By Grido
      It. Is. Time. The year has rolled around once more and it is time to think about what everyone has done over the past year and who deserves special merit in certain categories.
       
      I asked around previously if anyone wanted to run these awards as there have been timing issues the previous couple of years (primarily down to myself). Unfortunately only the one person stepped forward to offer their services, however because of a few different factors (such as time scale) they have now opted to not run it this year, but may in the future. They have also opted not to assist in running this - as a result I am looking for two more people to aid the running of the awards as necessary, which will definitely involve counting votes in the few days before the ceremony itself, so please make sure you are available for that, even if nothing else.
      If you would like to assist in these awards, please PM me.
       
      For those newer amongst us that are unaware - we hold these MD Awards at the end of each year and whilst the organiser (that's me) sets time scales and prompts here and there along the line, all the decisions are down to you, the community. There will be a time for refining the current rules, picking the categories themselves, then who should be eligible for voting on, before the voting itself occurs, and so long as you have a forum account you can directly participate in all of it.
       
      The timeline as proposed by me is below, I have allowed approximately 10 days for each segment which should hopefully be sufficient time, along with an intentional gap between nominees being finalised and the voting beginning to allow for setting up the voting page. Additionally an intentional gap is left between voting ending and the Ceremony to give time for the votes to be counted.
       
      Schedule of Events:
       
      Friday 30th October - It Begins (Rules Start) Here
      Sunday 1st November - Categories Start Here
      Monday 9th November - Rules End
      Friday 20th November - Categories End
      Saturday 21st Monday 23rd November - Nominees Starts Here
      Tuesday 1st Wednesday 2nd December - Nominees Ends
      Friday 4th Sunday 6th December - Voting Begins
      Monday 14th Wednesday 16th December - Voting Ends
      Friday 18th December - MD Awards Ceremony
       
       
      The ceremony date is not yet fixed, any point between then and Thursday December 24th would be acceptable for me currently, however over that weekend would be preferred. The time of the awards is yet to be set, please discuss it in this thread. The time date should be determined within the same period as the rules.
       
      I would like to commission an artist to draw pictures for the medal items given out, please get in touch if you feel you would have time available to do this. You would have from when the categories have been finalised, 21st Nov, until roughly when the voting begins on 4th Dec - this holds some flexibility though. We can negotiate some compensation for your efforts if you would like some, certainly I can sort something out for you.
       
      For each segment I will list how it stood last year, so for this thread I list last year's rules below. It is up to you lot to decide which rules should stay or go, which might need to be modified, and if any new ones should be introduced.
       
       
      [log=Rules]- The previous categories will be listed in a thread, and players can then argue for different ones to be added/removed - if players agree, then it will be so.
      - Certain categories have relevant restrictions on them, these can be changed/created/removed, but only prior to nominations opening.


      - There will be 3 people counting votes and organising this. These people will not be able to be nominated, however they are able to vote.
      - You may not nominate those who belong to the same land as yourself (this not only means hard-coded, but also those people considered part of certain lands). "This is an MD awards event, if a person deserves one of the awards, it is on the global level, not on local level, however capable the person is, which justifies the ban of the land nominations , possibly votes too".* If you note nominations slipping through this, please let an organiser know.
      - There will be a minimum of 3 players nominated for each category, no maximum.
      - Past winners will be allowed to be nominated again
      - You may only nominate one person per category. If you nominate multiple people, none will be added.
      - You may not nominate yourself, or another account you play.
      - No editing posts in the nomination thread - purely because I'll potentially get confused.


      - We will ideally use the in game voting system.
      - There's no restriction on voting for those of the same land.
      - There will be no restriction on the amount of voters, there will however be a limited timeframe to vote in as specified in the outline.
      - You do not have to vote in each category (though it's preferable).
      - If you vote for yourself in anything, all your votes will be discounted.
      - If players that have voted are detected as alts of each other, all associated votes will be discounted. (If you have multiple accounts, you're fine, but only vote once per person please), they will also be disqualified from any nominations your accounts may have.
      - Players under 20 AD will be unable to vote.


      I can't think of any other particular details currently, please ask if you think I've missed anything (in addition to discussing various points). If you are against any aspect with how it's set to run, please raise it and suggest alternatives.
       
      *[log= Associated Land Definition] Associated to a land includes being part of an alliance or a citizen, as well as those on temporary absence from them, but is not exclusive to just that mechanical association.

      You will find below the list of categories that was used for the MD Awards 2014, feel free to Add, remove, or modify any of those listed. I will strike out any that are decided to be removed from the list.
      New categories are also encouraged, and will get added to the list if there's no/negligible objections to it and multiple people want it included. This is the purpose of the thread, to come up with a final list of categories, remove and add as you decide, I'll just edit the list every so often.
       
      As you're doing these, please be aware of this thread as we are running the general rules concurrently with these discussions.
       
      Categories:
      Adventuring Award
      For the person most dedicated, or who perseveres most at quests. Not necessarily for completing, or winning the most.
       
      Best Beautification
      Given for the highest quality of artistic contributions given to beautify the realm, be it personification of papers, contribution to avatar gallery, or item depiction.
       
      Champion Fighter
      For the person considered to be the best fighter in the realm, this does not necessarily have to be the strongest fighter in the realm, but the one that uses the combat system to the best effect.
       
      Fossil of the year
      For the player who has been around so long they have turned into a fossil. The player must be visibly active over the past year, and on the veterans list in game.
       
      Helper of the Year
      For the player deemed to have been the most helpful. The area of helpfulness the player focusses on can vary. The voter should realise that even though they may not get on with, or have been helped by one of the nominees, this does not mean that the player is not indeed helpful.
       
      Most Addicted
      For the player who just can't leave MD for more than a minute without needing a fix.
       
      Most Popular
      Given to that most charismatic player who has attracted the largest and most consistent following. Not to be given to the most powerful or prestigious member of the realm, but rather the most well-loved.
       
      Outstanding Service to MD
      For the player thought to have done the most to contribute to MD over the year. This can be in any field.
       
      Pre-eminent Role Player
      For the player deemed to Role Play the best. The player does not have to stay in character all the time to win this award (though it may help), rather when they do role play it is to the highest standard - this does usually go in hand with remaining in character.
       
      Prime Quest
      For the player seen as creating the best quest over the past year. Just because a voter did not manage to complete the quest, does not mean it was a bad quest necessarily, the voter is asked to take this into account when voting.
       
      Rookie of the year
      For the player deemed to have made the most progress since they started their account. The player must have created their account since 1st November 2014 and have more than 20 AD at the time of voting. By progress it is meant a step towards a defined role or position (not necessarily official) within the realm, or integration within the community to a large degree.
       
      Top Techie
      For the person credited as creating the most popular MD-scripted event or script.
       
       
       
      If you feel any of the descriptions need updating or otherwise changing, please say so here as well.
       
      If you are good at art, and fancy helping out with something for this, PLEASE contact me regarding, I'll try to compensate you for your time and effort.

      Yes, I realise it's only October and thinking about Christmas festivities is weird at this time of year...
       
      ---
       
      To avoid issues like has happened in previous years, I would like someone to primarily run the event this year, I would of course be on hand as needed including any vote counting that may be necessary.
       
      You would need to have been around a year or more, having been here for at least one previous awards ceremony.
       
      In terms of responsibilities, you would need to:
      - Open threads at appropriate moments to indicate opening of the various stages of the votes.
      - Arrange for other people to collect and count votes.
      - Organise the voting itself (whether that be liaising with Chew, or arranging alternative voting methods).
      - Arrange for Medal Items to be created and distributed (preferably including artwork).
       
      I will of course do this if nobody else steps forward, but it would be a refreshing change to give someone else a go :)

      So, the year has rolled around once more, and so we once again have our MD Awards.
       
      Currently it will be Rophs and myself organising, along with a third person. If you want to help out please drop either of us a message, ideally you should have been to at least one previous awards.
      Ailith, dst and myself will be hosting this year.
       
      Discussion wise, I have already had feedback telling me to be more organised with it this year, including handing out the trophies during the ceremony itself, so I shall arrange for that to happen, medal boxes also already have the 2014 md award ready on it so they can also be given out at the time. Rophs is going to help me with the timings and things not getting delayed. Please let us know of any other issues you found last year in the hopes that they can be overcome on this one.
       
      All aspects of the awards are up for discussion up until the point each part begins. The exact categories and nominees will be discussed in separate threads to this, but the total amount of categories or min/max nominees for each category might be discussed here.
      The date and time of the ceremony should also be discussed here, I have currently proposed it to be just after Christmas, on the 28th December.
       
       
      Information relating to how the awards will run as it currently stands;
      [spoiler]
