Community awards Lore Wipe.

Recommended Posts

Western    496

Going to keep this short but I have a suggestion. As for the lore wipe, it will be here this time next month. So I was thinking could we do a community award for lets say for this current lore.(mainly for OG people for this award) People who have been awarded before goes into a poll to vote.  Then maybe some of the other awards that they do at the end of the year?

 

What are your opinions in this?

Sounds interesting, I of course never see anything wrong with rewarding more people for being awesome at what they do.

I think there should be an award for best PvP group ;) In all seriousness though like Undead said I don't see anything wrong with this and i'm on board with this.

As long as they're used somewhat sparingly, so that they don't just turn into a meaningless awards - then sure.

I think it wouldn't be fair, we've had this lore for 3 years and nobody would remember awesome things done back then, only recent ones. I think the yearly awards reflect better who really deserves an award for their effort.

That is funny, no!

But I don't think this is necessary, to be honest.
Just do it at the end of the year, just like every year.

I would say we stick to our yearly awards, like Rolle mentioned; it's been a long time but then again, I'm not against awards at all. I would rather like to push for awards within timeframes, forexample; Roleplayer of the month or something in that area.

I see a lot of issues with this suggestion. Good in concept, poor in practice.

Personally, the yearly rewards are worth it tbh. Any more and it's a bit... excessive. It starts to diminish the idea of awards if they become too common.

Also, these awards are usually half based on popularity so it's a bit biased.

Furthermore the lore has been around for years and thus most of the people that might be eligible for these awards have either been banned, or don't play that frequently anymore. Most of the really impactful characters were not forged within the last 6-8 months IMO. It feels like most people wouldn't have a clue who half of the characters are that existed years before they joined.

I'm a no to this suggestion.

I think, just maybe, possibly; that Shane was joking.

Also I don't like the awards anyway one because I can't get one and two because it's just based on how many friends you can get to vote for you rather than if you actually deserve it.

Pretty much this.

Awards overall are just a popularity contest and from what I saw with last years that pretty much solidified that. Nah.

No. 

Wait till the end of the year to do that. Even if we mention some groups that were exceptional or contributed a lot it will devolve into people voting for their own groups and shitting on others.

So I'll put it really simple, if you open this thread what do you see? Yes that's completely right *claps* thread with (something)...of the Year!

So no thanks keep it end of the year awards.

Sounds interesting, yet there is the yearly awards so I guess there is no need for this to be a thing.

I don't even remember what I ate for dinner last night, nevermind the events that have taken place over the last

No, that would be unnecessary. There have been so many great things that have happened in the past that the majority of the community wasn't around for.

As Rolle said, people won't remember what they have done in those past 3 years... No from me.

All I've learned from this suggestion is MAN, ya'll are a bunch of cold pragmatic kill joys, especially you @Rolle ;) 

Yeah, because we need another set of useless forum titles that are 100% based on how many friends you can get to vote for you.

It's not being a killjoy it's realising that we don't need some more titles.

I think we should have one for longest running support member ;)

I think we should just stick to doing it yearly. That way I only get spammed with 'vote for me' once a year.

 I seem to have found something:

Seems like any further need to do this is pretty redundant as it happens at the end of every year among traditions
