Recommended Posts

I'm not going to nominate people who have already been nominated, so I'm skipping a few categories.

[b]Best Quote/PL Entry[/b]
dst - "Another challenged player." I can't remember whose PL this is in, but it still makes me smile.

[b]Best Spell Caster[/b]
Jester. Imaginative, evil, and occasionally very funny.

[b]Elite Evil Villain of the Year[/b]
Ivorak. Sure, don't vote for him. Sit with your back to the door. Wake up dead.

[b]Fossil of the Year[/b]
Firsanthalas. Truly a wonderful player in many ways.

[b]Helper of the Year[/b]
Mya Celestia

[b]Best Backstory/Paragon Papers[/b]
Pamplemousse

[b]Most influential[/b]
No one (the player/character, not the pronoun)

[b]Pre-eminent Roleplayer[/b]
Innocence, the best (and most underrated) roleplayer I have ever known. I wish I could list her alternate personae, because that would surely make my point.

[b]Rookie of the Year[/b]
Eon

[b]Superior Orator[/b]
Awiiya. Not only a skilled debater, but an extemporaneous storyteller [i]par excellence.[/i]

One thing: please nominate just 1 (ONE) person for each category.
Amoran, please edit your post and choose just one.
[/quote]

:rolleyes: Fixed. I forgot that we can only nominate one person, either way I hope that others will nominate the ones I had to remove. They have all done well.




[color="#0000FF"]Thank you Amoran

Best Spell Caster
Princ Rhaeger I havnt forgotten all those prot no multi and freeze spells mate!

The Golden Protector
Princ Rhaegar god he was just a protector for so long

Helper of the Year (Grido can't be nominated)
Tarquinus - personally I dont like the LHOs being nominated dont grill me for it its just a personal opinion, I believe one of those who just helps purely out of kindness when he or she can is most deserving and I think Tarquin is one of those people.

Most Influential
Pamplemousse

ok...lot of posts in a day, and in a moment i'm going to be an evil moderator according to the following info.


If a player has already been nominated in a category, there is no need to nominate again. Please only list the categories in your post which you're actually nominating in.

If I have replied to the thread after your nominations, please reply again with changes or additions, otherwise please edit your posts, i will add nominations to the initial post every time i post, and i won't be back checking much.

As for nominating Mur, i'd have to be against, he has a hugely unfair advantage over other players, being the game creator an all. Please amend this if you want to nominate others.

The initial post will be updated with current nominations as soon as i've finished being an evil mod.

Prime Quest (best quest)
"What number am I?" (Cutler's work is what pulled me into Magic Duel)

[quote name='Grido' timestamp='1290642603' post='73128']
@Sparr, personally i don't like the insinuation that LHOs are such for personal benefit, and to assume that a non-LHO player does it for no benefit, is, to say the least, silly (nothing against you Tarq), players do like gaining adepts you know? But then that is my opinion, and you have yours.


All nominations above this post are added to initial post.

The following categories i'd like to see reduced in size, not sure how to work it though....so please refrain from adding any more names to these sections unless you feel they really must get added;
Adventuring Award
Best Back Story / Paragon Papers
Champion Fighter
Elite Evil Villain of the Year
Most Influential (definitely)
Superlative Orator
[/quote]

My suggestion was to have people "vote" for who they want initially then take the top 5. Then revote.

Also its not really fair saying the first X people can be considered and all others arent eligible, thats just mean.

If you need to reduce choices, then have nominations be seconded or similar (eg restrict this requirement to those the organizers don't "get"). Floating ballot voting is going to be a huge hassle for the ones organizing.

I would also like to say that i hope everyone that votes is not just influenced by someone else's post and nominations, because i see lots of people who nominate the same person(including me for a few of the nominations), so we do it hard for Grido to edit every post, lol. Anyway, don't just nominate the person because the other nominated it, but propose the person who you think deserves the award in your own opinion. Lots of amazing players are left behind and i think they deserve more.

Some of us were trying to help and only nominate people who were not nominated already. No good deed goes unpunished...

I will do this for you once I have my nomination list. (it's on my laptop, which the screen is cracked, so I can't get it currently.)

As to your thoughts on the people who were nominated most.. part of me feels that this is fair, and part of me feels that this is not fair towards the people who may have only been nominated twice.

This tends to turn the awards into a popularity contest rather than an awards ceremony for people who deserve to be recognized for certain things they may or may not have done in game over the past year.

If I may suggest that you make a separate thread for each category so that all of the players who were nominated are able to have a vote cast toward them. Perhaps a temporary forum section could be placed in order to do this without creating clutter?

Adventuring Award (quester)
- dst
[b]She's neurotically obsessed with finishing quests and gaining wishpoints. I can't imagine nominating anyone other than dst.[/b]

Best Artist (give examples,link / whatever)
-Marvolo
-Amoran
[b]Both of these artists have shown dedication and impressive art.[/b]

Best Back Story / Paragon Papers (back story and quality of papers)
- Innocence
[b]I'm impressed by the loyalty to the story, most. Quality for me is writing, not presentation.[/b]

Best Spell Caster
- Jester
[b]I agree with him, the game is most interesting when spells are used, with or without reason. His random casts of summon while obnoxious at times have over all given something for the realm to talk about. Many other spellcasters don't use them (myself included)[/b]

Champion Fighter
- Burns
- Clock Master
- Shadowseeker
- Leixer
[b]All the above fighters have impressed me with their dedication, and any one of them could defeat me at any day of the week. Burns especially - not just a good fighter, but a good teacher.[/b]

Elite Evil Villain of the Year
- Ivorak
- Pamplemousse
[b]Ivorak's use of the knife, and the guilt he expressed after the fact, show to me that he is a realistic villain. Brought unwillingly to do deeds that he rationalized at the time, I do hope one day he finds reasons to use the knife again. I nominate Pample because she has gained the support of the realm while simultaneously doing rather seedy things - first killing Mya, then becoming a rebel. I'm sorry dst, this year, there seem to be a few more smoking guns in town.[/b]

Fossil of the year (On vet list, Chewett can't nominated, as he won last year)
- Grido
- Tarquinus
[b]The reasons for these two nominations should be obvious - dedicated, kind, and likely to stay around longer than Mur.[/b]

The Golden Protector
- Princ Rhaegar
[b]I don't know many of the protectors, and it's rare that they stop by me, but Princ seems to have the support of his followers.[/b]

Helper of the Year (Grido can't be nominated)
- Mya Celestia
- Curiose
[b]Mya for her work as LHO, Curiose for her work in the Legend Speakers. Curiose drives herself crazy with ambition - she deserves this award.[/b]

Most Addicted
- Curiose
[b]See above reason. Anybody that spends their time during the day on MD, regardless of location, deserves to be declared addicted. Also - have you seen how she watches the forum? Like a hawk.[/b]

Most Influential
- Grido
- dst
- Tarquinus
- Pamplemousse
[b]This year there wasn't really a clear nomination for me... but these are the people whose posts I read when I want to skim a forum board. You know you've done it as well - it's nearly guaranteed that they'll get to the heart of the matter, and their opinions most often represent the majority of the population. Grido especially stands out as someone I go to if I need something - if he doesn't help me then and there, he'll tell me who to ask next.[/b]

Outstanding Service to MD
- Grido
- Rendril Revant
- Chewett
[b]Grido for his long hours, Rendril for his work before and after his promotion, Chewett for the forum.[/b]

Pre-eminent Role Player
- Keith Moon
- Zleiphneir
- Innocence
[b]These are the people that keep their character, no matter what time, no matter their mood, and the ones that have the most defined character. From a block of anonymous text, I could point out these three characters with utmost certainty.[/b]

Rookie of the year (20 - 365 AD)
- Curiose
[b]It might be because she and I talk a good deal (story night details, etc), but I think she's the most involved youngish person around.[/b]

Superlative Orator (Debating)
- Pamplemousse
- Firsanthalas
- Fyrd Argentus
- Aelis
[b]So many people are good at debating... but I had to limit myself. These are the four that not only keep up with a debate but move it along.[/b]

Top Techie (technical knowledge as well as technical help or script help)
- Rendril Revant
[b]The reason should be self-explanatory. Before and after promotion, Rendril is the best there is.[/b]

Best Quote (PL, or something in chat/forum)
[b]Indyra[/b] for the below line in the thread "Lifeline vb decision bla bla"

I know, my nominations may not be adequate, but hey, I am a new player with so much more to learn :))

Both nominations are dictated of my personal experience so far, and not influenced by other players.

That is hilarious, that's the best thing I have heard in an extremely long time.

To make this less offtopic, I'd nominate this too, but since dst already did it, I won't have to :P

      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]

      - Clock Master [Sunfire]
      - Eon [Chewett]

      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

      - Asthir [Jubaris]
      - MaGoHi [Dark Demon]
      - Nadrolski [AmberRune]

      Most Improved Player
      The player that the community things has grown the most in the past year. This can be a rookie who set feet on the ground quickly and got walkin' or an oldie who had been inactive but picked up a lot of momentum and did some cool things.

    • 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.

      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.
       
      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]
