    Default [Award] lolIsuck for Novus


    "Awarded for exceptional contributions to the site in the capacity of a staff member."

    "There are only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch" - Sir Michael Caine

    lolIsuck for Novus

    lolIsuck has been a staple of the Total War Center community for nearly a decade now and in that time he has shown himself to be dedicated to keeping the site alive and running. And, perhaps most importantly, he has done all of this in spite of his Dutch heritage. I think we all know that the only people who can get nominated for these big awards these days are the Turks. I say let's change that. I say we give lolIsuck Novus, if only to spite the haters.


    All jokes aside though, if anyone is deserving of a Novus and has not yet received one, it's lolIsuck. In 2011 he was recognized by the community as the "fastest rising newb" and they couldn't have been more right. That same year he joined Content Staff and began writing for the Eagle's Standard. A few months later, he left the Eagle's Standard to work on updating the modding tutorial indices.

    Ever since 2013 lolIsuck has been heavily involved in the Member Awards and has been responsible for counting the votes. If you've ever won a Member Award, then you have lolIsuck to thank for fudging the numbers. In 2014 he was patronized by the extraordinarily noteworthy librarian Påsan. Who, if he were still here, would probably say something like "woof woof woof, woof" or whatever sound foxes make in support of their offspring.

    In 2014 sensibilities lapsed and lolIsuck became a member of Moderation. Truly a dark time for the site but a golden age for those loyal to him. He was a dedicated and respected member of Moderation for 5 years until his retirement in June of 2019 to pursue a career in polder development. In addition to serving as a Moderator, he served as Moderator Hex from 2018-2019.

    When Gigantus retired from Modding Hex lolIsuck stepped up to the plate and took over the role of Modding Hex. The man has more emeritus titles and ranks than even Gigantus. If that isn't proof of the quality of his service to the site I don't know what else could be.


    And all of that aside, just look at all of the awards this SOB has already gotten. Don't you just want to give him another one?

    Awesome guy. I mean lolli. You are cool too, Akar, but not awesome. You know what I mean.

    Worst combo applicant/proposer I've ever seen

    However, IMO it's totally deserved, not just for the many things lolI did as a Staffer (Content, Moderation, Modding Staff, Member Awards Committee) but also because of his friendly attitude, both towards his fellow staffers and other members as well. I remember when I joined Moderation he was my Mentor, and he taught me all the basic rules about being a good moderator, in the true sense of the world (the fact that I failed at being a good moderator it's another story, though ) and he gave me a different perspective on how to deal with the membership in such a delicate role (I was too rigid to be honest)... however, a great staffer and a long overdue Novus.

    Go lolI, go!

    Both me and z3n had the privilege to work closely with lolIsuck in the Modding Staff last year, until he retired as a modding hex.

    Support!


    He even deserve the Divus award IMO.

    An exceptionally hard-working, helpful, cheerful and friendly member of the staff. A well-deserved award for a fellow guess-the-map player.
    Definitely support.

    Anyway, I can only add support to all that has already said above.

    PS: when Lollie gets his award, can we do this to the Curia with all officials in the House?

    Er... you mean we should reopen it in the presence of royalty with lots of fireworks and appropriately coloured smoke bombs?

    I can't say whether Hader would agree to that... but since he founded an 'Imperial' House, if he does, you might even wish to consider him royalty for the occasion.


    As a Modding Hex, I benefit directly from the work lolIsuck did as my predecessor, so naturally I support this. It would be ungrateful and unreasonable of me to do anything else.
