Badges are similar to our Community Awards in that they are awarded for out-of-character (OOC) participation and achievement. However, while Community Awards are bestowed on a yearly basis each June to recognize long-term achievement and outstanding performance among a peer-group, badges are reserved for incremental achievements or singular contest wins.
For the month of June, 2018, we’re happy to report the following badge recipients. Please congratulate them when you have a chance, and thank them for their contributions to the community!

Presented to a staff member that has held the position of Awards Chairperson for an Awards Ceremony. If more than one staff member holds the title, or is appointed an assistant or deputy, all receive the badge.

FallFest 2015 a great success!
This year marked the fifth annual ‘OngoingWorlds Fall Festival‘, known casually as ‘FallFest‘. It is an event that brings together the entire simming community to discuss various aspects of role playing, play trivia games and role play together. We put on the longest running FallFest in the event’s history and packed the schedule full of lots of exciting events and our dedicated radio DJs kept everyone entertained with music and updates from the chat rooms throughout.
We had a huge turnout with over 50 people attending the event! I’ve had emails from several people thanking us for what we put on and telling me how much they enjoyed themselves! Everyone in the wider simming community knows that we know how to put on an outstanding party and I know they’ll be talking about this event in years to come. This is what Charles Star had to say:
The entire team from host club UFOP: StarBase 118 put on another world-class show, just as they did two years ago at FallFest III. I’d like to personally thank everyone who took some part in making it all happen: those who hosted events, those who promoted & advertised, those who played a technical role whether it was graphic design or setting up chatrooms, and those who simply invited a friend to join in on the fun. Thank you all! – Charles Star, in his OngoingWorlds article “The Ongoing Worlds Community Honor now has two more Laureates“
Without the help and support of everyone who put themselves forward – be it providing graphics, helping with research or publicity tasks, hosting a chat session or being radio DJ we simply wouldn’t have pulled it off. We’re really lucky and proud to have such an outstanding support team. To everyone who helped out and everyone who turned up to support us: Thank you so much!
FallFest Helper Badge presented to a great team!
It is my great pleasure to present the FallFest Helper badge to the many people who supported us in organising and running a highly successful FallFest.

Did you miss FallFest this year? Want to know what all the fuss is about?
We kept transcripts so you can read (or re-read) your favourite sessions again and again! You can get pretty close to the real experience by listening to a recording of our wonderful radio show, which is also available for anyone who wants to listen in.

The Captains Council is proud to introduce a whole new reward system for our community: Badges!
Badges are similar to our Community Awards in that they are awarded for out-of-character (OOC) participation and achievement. However, while Community Awards are bestowed on a yearly basis in December to recognize long-term achievement and outstanding performance among a peer-group, badges are reserved for incremental achievements or singular contest wins.
Players can receive more than one badge at a time, and can also receive a badge multiple times through enhancements – a marker on the wiki that denotes repeated achievement. Similar to the star system used on the service ribbons, a gold tip represents each repeated citation, and a silver tip represents five additional citations (and therefore five gold tips).
We’ve launched with 18 badges, however more will be announced over the coming weeks.
Check out the new badges page on the wiki for more information about how to receive badges, how to display them on your wiki bio, and the list of all the available badges.
