We’re so very proud to announce that Capt. Nugra has been awarded the Simming Prize, also known as the Seth Cotis Medal of Honor, for “exemplifying service, quality, and dedication within the Simming and play-by-post role-playing community.”
This is our community’s third winner of the prize, with previous recipients being including Ed Brown in 2012, our community as a whole in 2011 and our website in 2006.
Nugra was promoted to captain in December of 2014, but has been a member since 2003, having served on a number of ships – including CO of the Victory – and a number of OOC teams. He currently heads the Publicity Team as facilitator, and was recently the Captains Council Magistrate. You can read more about him in recent interviews:

Since 1999, the Simming Prizeward has been presented to sims on the internet for their quality and fun factor. It is that time of year and the 2013 Simming Award has been opened.
Up to five Prizes are awarded annually to people, sims, clubs, or organizations who (1) exemplify service, quality, and dedication within the simming community, or who (2) pioneer new technology or techniques within the community. It can be awarded for a specific accomplishment or for sustained superior performance over a period of time. Winners may use the honorific Simming Prize Laureate. Oh yeah, its official name is the The Prize for Simming and Online Role Playing in Memory of Seth Cotis. We just call it the Simming Prize because it’s easier to say.
Today is the last day to submit a nomination, so head over to the nomination form now.
On March 12, the 2011 winners of the Simming Prize, the highest award issued by the Simming League, were announced, and UFOP: StarBase 118 was recognized “for its exemplary community, which for over 15 years has consistently offered detailed, high quality sims, and a welcoming, friendly gaming environment.” This is the second Simming Prize for our community; UFOP: SB 118 was previously recognized in 2006 for its use of internet technology and was commended for its “rich graphics and useful information, presented in a well organized and streamlined fashion, facilitating easy navigation.” With this second win, UFOP: StarBase 118 joins an elite group of laureates and achieves recognition for the talented and friendly membership that makes it the award-winning organization that it is.
We need your help to publicize our group and to spotlight the excellent writers we have at Starbase 118. The nomination process is simple and will only take a few minutes of your time. Submissions can be made at this link until Saturday, February 18th.
After you have nominated Starbase 118, please fill out the form again for a simmer in our group who you believe stands out above the rest. We have many excellent writers, and this is another opportunity to recognize them. In addition to giving a reason for their nomination, it would be very helpful to include a link to one of their sims on their ship’s Yahoo Group.
