Awards Ceremony 2017 – Day 2: Staff and General Awards

Welcome to day two of our annual awards ceremony!

Today we start with our Staff Awards, reserved for those who have achieved the rank of commander or higher. These awards recognize the hard work of those who command ships and help administer our community. They do the behind-the-scenes work required to keep the engine of our community running, and smoothly at that! They help foster the fun simming environment we all enjoy. Just like with last year’s selection, the first officers of the fleet were empaneled to vote on the nominations for each staff award, providing recommendations to the EC about who should receive each award. We’re delighted to say that all their recommendations were accepted this year without modification!

And we continue by announcing our General (Ship) Awards list, which have already been presented by each captain to their crew directly. This is your chance to see how each of the other ships did and see who picked up what award. The winners this year, as in previous years, were chosen by the fleet’s commanding officers (or in cases where the commanding officer was also nominated, the first officer was called in to decide) from the nominations made by you!

Find out who won each of the nine staff awards, and all general awards, by heading to the forums. Don’t forget to congratulate the winners!

The 2017 Awards Ceremony starts today!

While our group was founded in 1994, our first ceremony was held in 1996, bringing together the whole fleet for an In Character celebration. Since then, we’ve seen the addition of dozens of new awards, a transition to Out Of Character presentations, and a move from the traditional December presentation to June, to coincide with the yearly anniversary of our founding. We’ve come a long way!

Today begins our 2017 Awards Ceremony, and over the next few days we’ll present to the fleet the winners in five categories of awards:

  • General: Honoring the members who’ve won this year’s General, or ship-based awards
  • Staff: Honoring the work of our fleet’s staff members
  • Duty Post: Honoring the best simmer from each duty post
  • Special: Honoring specific aspects of simming or OOC work
  • Length of Service: Honoring members who have been with us for a year, all the way up to 10 years and more

It’s time to don your awards outfit and get ready for the fun to begin. Head to the forums to read the introduction and learn how to change your forum avatar.
