Welcome to day two of the annual awards ceremony! Yesterday we announced the recipients of the General Awards. Today we’re proud to present the Length of Service and Special Awards.
Our Length of Service Awards recognize folks who’ve hit one of our membership tiers in the last year: 1-year, 3-years, 5-years, 10-years, 15-years and 20-years! Incredibly, we’re recognizing two 5-year commanding officers this year, and one 25-year member!
Special Awards is a catch-all category for awards that don’t fit elsewhere but mostly entail OOC community innovation and dedication. This is where awards like the Rising Star and Community Champion fit, recognizing members who are putting in an incredible effort. Just like with the Staff and Duty Post awards, only one of each award is given each year – only the very best are chosen so they are highly coveted awards that every player has a chance to be considered for by getting involved and giving it their best. (With one notable exception: The Xalor Clan Xifilis award is given to any player who has overcome any sort of disadvantage while simming. We don’t compare and weigh one person’s struggles against another but rather award this to all eligible and deserving candidates who are nominated for it.)
