  1. Re: [Amendment] Pater Familias or Patronus Award

    People seem to have little faith in this community. There is no spamming in this forum because of medals. Nobody does anything just to get medals. If they do and they do a bad job then it will show...
  2. Re: [Amendment] Patronus Award

    It doesn't have to be limited to 3 levels, though 3 can do fine I guess, and I think the first level should start with patronization of one Citizen. In itself, it's the start of a house.

    Sticky: Re: Townhall - Curial Commentary and Chat

    There is no award for patronization? There should definitely be one. Some people take the time to put forward Citizenship application and it would be nice to recognize that.

    I would oppose such an inverted approach as it jumbles up different criteria into a meaningless pile. Earlier you called 15 years with 1500 posts a very low bar and here you are suggesting 15 years...

    I'm confused. Just a post earlier you called 15 years with 1500 posts a very low bar. Now you're arguing that 15 years with no post count requirement is a good bar to clear. What am I missing?
