MD Awards 2014 - Categories

Recommended Posts

Here we'll discuss the various categories for this year's awards.

Copied over from last year, below is the list of previous categories to add, remove and change as consensus dictates. I will strike out any that are decided to be removed from the list.
New categories are also encouraged, and will get added to the list if there's no/negligible objections to it and multiple people want it included. This is the purpose of the thread, to come up with a final list of categories, remove and add as you decide, I'll just edit the list every so often.

 

 

 

 

Categories:

Adventuring Award
For the person most dedicated, or who perseveres most at quests. Not necessarily for completing, or winning the most.

 

Best Beautification

Given for the highest quality of artistic contributions given to beautify the realm, be it personification of papers, contribution to avatar gallery, or item depiction.

 

Champion Fighter
For the person considered to be the best fighter in the realm, this does not necessarily have to be the strongest fighter in the realm, but the one that uses the combat system to the best effect.

 

Fossil of the year
For the player who has been around so long they have turned into a fossil. The player must be visibly active over the past year, and on the veterans list in game.

 

Helper of the Year
For the player deemed to have been the most helpful. The area of helpfulness the player focusses on can vary. The voter should realise that even though they may not get on with, or have been helped by one of the nominees, this does not mean that the player is not indeed helpful.

 

Most Addicted
For the player who just can't leave MD for more than a minute without needing a fix.

Most Popular
Given to that most charismatic player who has attracted the largest and most consistent following. Not to be given to the most powerful or prestigious member of the realm, but rather the most well-loved.

 

Outstanding Service to MD
For the player thought to have done the most to contribute to MD over the year. This can be in any field.

 

Pre-eminent Role Player
For the player deemed to Role Play the best. The player does not have to stay in character all the time to win this award (though it may help), rather when they do role play it is to the highest standard - this does usually go in hand with remaining in character.

Prime Quest
For the player seen as creating the best quest over the past year. Just because a voter did not manage to complete the quest, does not mean it was a bad quest necessarily, the voter is asked to take this into account when voting.

 

Rookie of the year
For the player deemed to have made the most progress since they started their account. The player must have created their account since 1st November 2013 and have more than 20 AD at the time of voting. By progress it is meant a step towards a defined role or position (not necessarily official) within the realm, or integration within the community to a large degree.

 

Top Techie
For the person credited as creating the most popular MD-scripted event or script.

Fix helper of the year so its biased for LHO's. I doubt this will be approved since the "leader" of the awards is also LHO leader.

Fix this?

If people want and agree to the change, the change will happen, it is irrelevant that I am in charge of the LHO because it is not my decision to implement the change, it is the public's. Also, I am confident that if either of the other two people running the awards (Ailith and dst) felt I was being biased towards any particular group or persons it would get noted by them, if not by the greater community.
