MD Awards 2012 - Category Suggestion


Recommended Posts

Here we'll discuss the various categories for this year's awards.

Copied over from last year, below is the list of previous categories to add, remove and change as consensus dictates. 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.

There's currently 14 categories, and I'd like to keep it under 15 total, if there's more than that when the thread closes then I'll reduce it to that number myself, so it's in your interests to keep that number down :)



Adventuring Award
For the person most dedicated, or who perseveres most at quests. Not necessarily for completing, or winning the most.

Best Beautification
For the person thought to be the most skilled at art in the realm. Generally speaking this refers to drawing/painting, rather than other forms of art.
For the player with the best presented papers. This is a purely objective vote, as every player finds different things nice looking. It also encompasses the player's backstory as presented in their papers. [[color=red]someone please "tidy" this description[/color]]

[s]Best Spell Caster
For the person most enthusiastic or creative with casting spells - by which it is meant the use itself of them, the words used or another method by which the voter deems appropriate.[/s]

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.

Elite Evil Villain of the Year
For the person who is viewed as being the most villainous over the past year. The voter can interpret this in various ways, including but not limited to; most negative disturbance caused, most times sent to jail, most people peeved off by them, most ingenious/devious plan devised and carried out.

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.

The Golden Protector
For the player who is viewed as performing the best in the role of protector(MP6) during the past year. The player does not have to currently be a protector. The voter should take into account the actions of the other protectors in the realm, rather than automatically voting for their own. Best can mean how helpful the protector has been, to how effective they have been in recruiting worshippers, this is at the voters discretion.

Helper of the Year
For the player deemed to have been the most helpful. This is open to any player, and is not restricted to LHOs. The area of helpfulness the player focusses on can vary, but due to the original focus of the award being to LHOs, it would be implied that the award is based on peoples helpfulness towards newer players. 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
[color=#ff0000][Description Needed][/color]

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 January 2011 (inc) and be between 20 - 365 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 [s]best[/s] 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.

I suggest the description of Top techie be changed. Rather than a superlative like 'best' I'd suggest most popular or something like that.

I also agree with seig. Best spell caster I think can be removed and something else can be added. Most informative or separate the best papers award?

I'd like to see Most Evil Villain removed as well. We don't have anyone to fill the role besides the obvious.

I'd like to see this event lean more towards recognizing outstanding service to MD, its community, and each other.

"Villains" help too, just not in the most helpful of ways, think [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacker_%28computer_security%29#Grey_hat"]Grey hat hacker[/url]. In some cases they put more effort in than the people they're villainizing.

why not give away a most friendly/most popular player award? Popularity deserves an award too. The person needn't be an LHO or a person who has established a role. They maybe the most liked player in the realm. Someone who is friendly, helpful, well known but isn't listed out. I know there'l be a lot of nominations, but we can keep it in such a way that the person has to be nominated by atleast 3 people to make it to the voting list.

Due to general consensus, Best Spell Caster has been crossed out.

I have another one.

Add "Quest Expert" for the best quest-maker of the year. It can also be merged with "Prime Quest", if possible.



As for Grido's post:

Only have 3 awards ~ NO WAY! The current ones should remain! And perhaps add the one ^^ above :P
Top Techie description change- change best - most popular ~ Yes
Split Best Beautification back up ~ Yes
ADD - Master Avatar Maker ~ Maybe
ADD - Most loyal to land ~ I agree with dst, it would be best not to have that one.
ADD - Most popular ~ Yes

I can think of one thing that could be considered a festival:

magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/12708-festival-of-war-and-remembrance/

Curiose's Story Night, however fun, is just one event:

magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/12349-story-night-june-4th/

For Maebius I assume you refer to these:

http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/13206-monthly-maebius-madness-4-again/

For Fyrd there's a few quests such as:

If you refer to summer fest which is a BFH production:

As for Mya I'm not sure what you're getting at.

      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.

      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. It also extends to a player who feels they belong to a certain land, or who through largely exclusive association or actions is viewed as of a certain land. Those who since those actions visibly associate themselves with another land would then no longer be thought of as with the former.
      Alliance hoppers, or those that take alliances without intended association with the land the new alliance is a part of are exceptions and will be treated based on perception, rather than mechanical.[/log][/log](The above is mostly copied from last year, so there may be some inaccuraces - please point them out)

      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.

      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]
      - There will be a maximum of 10 categories.
      - 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 and a maximum of 5 players nominated for each category.
      - Past winners will be allowed to be nominated again, however, if there are more than 5 names nominated when it closes, those will be the first removed.
      - Mur cannot be nominated (sorry Mur), and Chewett cannot be nominated for Top Techy (or another award along the same lines).
      - Previous Fossil (or a similar award if that does not exist this year) winners, cannot win 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 - this will be 11 days.
      - 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.

      [spoiler]
      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. It also extends to a player who feels they belong to a certain land, or who through largely exclusive association or actions is viewed as of a certain land. Those who since those actions visibly associate themselves with another land would then no longer be thought of as with the former.
      Alliance hoppers, or those that take alliances without intended association with the land the new alliance is a part of are exceptions and will be treated based on perception, rather than mechanical.
