    Spring 2008 Role Playing Forum Awards

    Welcome to the first RPF Awards of 2008! Yep, this year's Winter Awards have disappeared. Sorry folks! Tune in January 2009 for their triumphant return. Please be sure to review the entire post (even if you?ve done this before) to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible.

    Purpose of the Awards
    Our role playing forums are very special ? unique in their quality and community. We come here to play, but also to work. It?s not easy to build a successful game or navigate through the galaxy with a character. It?s especially challenging now, with three distinct forums dedicated to different aspects of role playing. Many of you dedicate significant amounts of your free time to make this place the best it can be.

    These awards have been established in recognition of the extraordinary efforts of you ? our users. The VIPships and publicity awarded to winners are meant to serve as both a reward for a job well done and a way to increase visibility. It is hoped that others will learn from their example, and that they will continue to serve as leaders of these role playing forums.

    How it works
    Awards are held four times per year, in April (Spring), July (Summer), October (Autumn) and January (Winter).

    The four categories for awards are:

    Best GM
    Best Roleplayer
    Best RPG (Star Wars and Non-Star Wars)
    Best New RPG (Star Wars and Non-Star Wars)

    New RPGs are defined as any active game less than three (3) months old. RPGs must be active (no locked threads may be nominated).

    Voting will consist of two rounds:

    Round 1:
    • Lasts for five (5) days

    • A time to nominate any active RPG or player

    • Once a thread/player has been nominated once, please refrain from nominating them again (one nomination is sufficient to save a spot on the ballot)

    • Users may not nominate themselves for awards

    • All users may make a total of two (2) nominations per category

    Any RPG that wins an award becomes ineligible for next season's awards, to ensure fairness and variety. Any players who win awards will be ineligible until the next year.

    Round 2
    • Begins immediately after the results of Round 1 are posted

    • A list of all the nominees will be compiled for members to pursue

    • You then have seven (7) days to PM your votes from the choices to the host

    • Users have the option of voting for up to three (3) people in the Best RPer and best GM categories, and up to two (2) games in the Games categories

    • Campaigning (ie, soliciting votes and/or nominations) at any time during the awards, in any thread, in any forum, is absolutely not allowed!


    The winners will be announced at the end of Round 2.

    Prizes
    As always, the part you've all been waiting for.

    The winning GMs and Roleplayers will each be awarded VIPship (with the ability to choose custom colors) for one week. In addition, they will earn a place in the "RPF Hall of Fame" in the Community Centre. The winning RPGs will receive a special place in the introductory sticky thread, as well as the right to the title of "Best RPG," until the next season's winners are announced.

    The "RPF Stars" Awards

    Winners of the RPF Stars Awards will not receive titles or colors, but they are encouraged to place their titles in their sig or bio. The idea behind these awards is to provide recognition for exemplary members of our community who stand out in interesting and innovative ways.

    The RPF Stars Awards will be run similarly to the rest of the Awards for this incarnation ? that is to say, we will do stages for them like the normal awards. The ?nomination stage? is first. During this stage,/>/>/>/>/>

    2. Imperial Hammer / MasterPrenn

    Best RPer:
    1. Lord Pullus ? I was thoroughly and consistently impressed with how this roleplayer handled a Muun senator in the Galactic Senate RPG, and I truly felt like I was locking horns with a recaltricant politician while interacting with him.
    2. pashatemur ? consistently skilled at realising alien races, such as her portrayal of Grevious? kaleesh widow, in Galaxy at War, and the culture and language of the Ursean people ?

    1. Galaxy at War III: Schism of the Sith
    2. Galactic Senate RPG

    Heyy... isn't the link to the Awards thread usually up in the header? That could explain why there's so little turnout this time around.

    Oh yah!

    Dang, thats right.... forgot all about that...

    As a mod, I can't play with scrolling messages and banners until my promotion to manager in May...

    However, I will shoot a PM off to Tyi-Maet and get him to do it for me... :p

    I will also give the nomination period a 3 Day extension starting from when the header comes up.

    Tell your friends to come in and vote! :)
