    Default [Civitate] Turkafinwë (Patron: Legio_Italica)

    To the Curia:

    I present to you Turkafinwë, candidate for citizenship. As you’ll see, his qualifications speak for themselves, but I’ll nevertheless make the necessary introduction. As part of Content, I’ve tried to keep my eye out for potential citizens along the way. The thing about Turk is, he caught my attention before I even started looking. His activity and various contributions to Content are outstanding, and indicate an earnest and sustained commitment to the TWC community. His writing skills regularly produce quality work for Content and have added tremendous value to the community we all love. Not only that, he is everything I imagine when I think of what a citizen should be and how I believe we all ought to comport ourselves here. He is quite literally a model candidate, and I consider myself lucky to be the one to sponsor him. See below for yourself.

    Applicant's Part Greetings, esteemed members of the Cvria, my name is Turkafinwë (shortened Turk for those who already know me) and you might've seen my activity about the Writers' Study – and other parts of TWC – for almost two years now. I joined TWC in the year 2013 when I was but an edgy Belgian teenager, primarily to find mods for Rome Total War and Medieval 2 Total War. Afterwards I was content and took a very long nap and had great fun in just gaming away the time. Then the year 2018 came along and I rediscovered Total War Center and more importantly, I discovered the Writers' Study. I couldn't believe my eyes from what I saw there, an entire forum dedicated to campaigns turned into stories. I had been writing AAR's for years before I even knew that was a thing. (even now I have countless accounts of campaigns hidden in my closet that have not yet seen the light of day). To come to the point of this part of my story on TWC, the actual starting point of my adventure onto the website was when I started writing (and posting) my AAR, To Earn a Kingdom. Not long after I became an active member of the Writers' Study, mostly AAR section, I was contacted by Alwyn. He asked me if I wanted to join Content Staff, which I gleefully accepted.

    I joined Content Staff in September 2018 as a member to the Writers' Study and Critic's Quill Staff. As Staff member I ran several General Competitions of MAARC, MCWC and TotW but the most notable of my exploits as Staff, so far, was the running of the Writers' Study Yearly Awards 2018-2019 which was a very enjoyable experience. Another piece of labour I'm quite proud of is the recent publication of my AAR review of Derc Plays Through World History for the Critic's Quill.

    Besides my work as Staff I also have a small presence in the Hotseat section of TWC, by courtesy of Jadli who introduced me to the then new Quenta Silmarillion Roleplay Hotseat in April 2018. Since then I have joined several other hotseat (all of them RP) and have met numerous friendly members I would otherwise not have contact with.

    As you might have noticed by now is that writing is really my 'thing' here on TWC and everything I do is somehow connected to it. I came to the Writers' Study to post my writing and share some of my in-game experiences with the world. I stayed because of the friendly and supportive community that lives there. I joined Content Staff to preserve and further improve that culture and as I discovered more sections of this large website I wished to take it a step further. That is why I apply to become a Citizen, to uphold the values of this website and be a larger part of its existence.

    I hope you find my contributions so far and my aspirations for the future sufficient to accept my application. I thank you.

    Of course noone is made solely by themselves and I will use this application to thank several people who have made my time on TWC great or otherwise helped me to where I am now. First and foremost a big thanks to atthias who introduced me to the WS and supported me in the early stages of my AAR writing! Thank you to Alwyn who continues to support me and who gave me the opportunity of joining Content Staff! Thanks to Caillagh de Bodemloze for the support and advice I can always count on. And last but not least, a big thank you to Legio_Italica for being my patron.

    Thanks all!


    References Turkafinwë is an excellent contributor to Content, working in the Writers' Study and Critic's Quill team. He has run many competitions including the Writers' Study Yearly Awards, our biggest single competition of the year. He has contributed to the Critic's Quill by reviewing stories from the Tale of the Week 284 and by a review of Derc's AAR Derc Plays Through World History. He is enthusiastic, reliable and always helpful. He gets on well with everyone and we both enjoy working with him. We're very happy indeed to recommend him for citizenship.

    Support. Turk has a very strong track record in staff, even if a lot of the work he does might go unnoticed sometimes - competition management and archiving are not the flashiest of jobs, but necessary and oftentimes more demanding than they may let on. Nevertheless, he has always been energetic, positive and courteous in his duties. His long running AAR is also very professional and shouldn't be overlooked. If you ask me, he's a little overdue for citizenship!

    One of the straightest support ever, I don't even need to read the application honestly, the names are enough

    Don't get me wrong, no will to lack the due respect, but since I've been following (indirectly) all of Turkafinwë's struggles in the Staff, I totally agree that he deserves citizenship.
