So, it's been quite a while since we've done regular awards here, and I want to try and revive that a bit. They're a good way to reward players for the work you do on the sim and get your achievements recognised, and so towards the end of the month I've been considering who to hand what awards out to. First of all, I'm going to be handing out the latest Longevity award that everyone is eligible for, to bring us up to date on that score. Honestly in some cases it doesn't feel like it's been as long as it has, but here's the list of Longevity award recipients:
5yr: Tim Williams
3yr: Melony Taylor
1yr: Rikka Takanashi, Ryan North, Jean Reynard, Griffen Tanol, Vex Krylore
9Mth: Jonathan Forrest
6Mtn: Kevin Barnaby, Jordan Cassidy
I'll make sure to keep on top of milestones as we go from here on in, so expect to see more being handed out as people hit the various marks.
And now onto awards that aren't just a maths game:
The Newcomer award is being granted to our new diplomatic officer, Esmé Dumont, played by Josh. Although Josh has only been with us for a short time, both the XO and I have been thoroughly impressed with their writing so far, and we're looking forward to writing more posts with the character. Keep up the good work!
The Post Master award is for those on the sim who have contributed the most posts for the month, and this time round it is a joint award to both our XO, Vincent Holt (aka Kyle) and Esmé Dumont, who each contributed to four posts this month - double the minimum asked for by the fleet!
Next up is the Captain's Merit award, which this month I am awarding to our quartermaster, Jordan Cassidy, played by Andrea. I was very impressed by Andrea's suggestion in our Discord channel to work with other sims in the task force and have some interaction with the IC quartermaster of those sims to build on the sense of being far from supply lines in the Federation where we are in the delta quadrant. I very much look forward to seeing some of those posts take shape, and encourage everyone to continue thinking of out of the box ideas for interaction both within the sim and with the other sims within the fleet.
I am also this month awarding the Friendship Ribbon to Ryan North (for the NPC Avery Stiles), Jean Reynard (for the NPC Theodore Vega) and Vex Krylore. Over the past few months these three writers have been leading the way with forging IC friendships amongst their characters in a believable and enjoyable way, and they more than deserve this award. I am also awarding both Ryan and Jean the NPC Award for their work developing the characters of Avery adn Theodore, respectively.
That's it for this month folks. Remember that if you feel someone on the sim is deserving of an award, you can nominate them here, and you can see a full list of the awards we have to give here.
