    Icon4 Participation Award

    I believe we have reach a time when such award could be beneficial to the site.

    Participation Award

    There will be three levels.
    Bronze:
    BRONZE


    Silver:
    SILVER

    Gold:
    GOLD


    The award should be given retroactively to members no longer active as well. This will serve to promote the award by increasing visibility.
    A system of a small, medium and large award could be given but still color codded.

    Opposed.

    TBH, I don't see the reason or being beneficial behind this participation award.

    Promoting an award by giving the award to promote the awards visibility is a great idea. Utterly pointless, but I like the thinking behind it.

    Opposed.

    I oppose this only because of the animadversion I feel for its proposer.

    I'm feeling a tad serious... I'll oppose.

    In the meantime, who would win the battle between Dr. Strange vs. Gandalf? I'm leaning towards Gandalf, myself.
    He got more magic experience, longer beard and pointier hat me thinks. I am however open for other suggestions...

    You are both party poopers of the highest order. I motion to have you both cast out of the Prothalamos posthaste.

    I don't understand, what are the criteria for awarding it to someone?

    Please don't listen to Akar. This is a serious proposal. Studies have shown bees to increase their productivity by 48% after having been awarded medals. The question isn't whether this proposal will work, but whether 3 tiers are enough.

    We will say it's based on merit - but award it very arbitrarily, thus increasing site engagement through controversy.

    You know, you might actually be on to something there... Increased "site activity" and "participation" by pissing people off over some fluff!

    glad you came around.

    I count 7 votes in support and only three against, one of whom is Swedish and the other a communist, so their votes shouldn't count.

    I am glad that we're on track. Did I mention that everyone in support gets a rep? Not as a bribe ofc

    Participation rep is the best kind of rep.

    The most important element of this is to wonder if the Mandalorian will ever take off his helmet, I think we can all agree Pedro Pascal is a fine looking man with a silky mustache worthy of an oggle, regardless of your proclivities. Secondary, but no more important than the first point, is this being a commentary on the futility of creating awards to increase participation when participation requires participants, whether they wear helmets or not. Do not talk about Fight club, quislings and Godwin's law... Punch it Chewie...

    Do non citizens vote here? If yes... opposed. It's simple vanity award that would only entice people to show up, make crap posts, clog the forums and confound interesting threads for no real gain for the site. We need quality, not quantity.
