    Default [Civitate] Alexander78 (Patron: Van Zandt)

    Support: Turkafinwe, Akar, Jadli, Leonardo, MIKE GOLF, La De Da Brigidier Graham, z3n

    Citizens of the Curia,


    I would like to present to you the Civitate application for Alexander78. I noticed many months ago that he had become a regular in the Screenshots and Graphics competition threads. He is a talented artist who regularly contributes to the POTW, UESW and GPOTW. He is graphically talented, as shown in his screenshots thread (My-humble-screens). As a regular contributor he is an active part of a small group that has kept the "Screenshot Galleries, Picture of the Week and Video Competitions" forum alive and vibrant in these dark, end-of-days times.

    He has achieved the enviable goal of the POTW Gold medal, and we will obviously have to obtain higher levels for him to achieve in the near future.

    Here are just a few of this screenshots that convey some sense of his skill in these competitions. He has winning entries for both the POTW and GPOTW, which of course contributed to his Gold Medal achievement.

    His statement:

    To the Curia, my name is Alexander, I came to TWC in 2017. Like most of the members of this society, I came here in search of mods for my favorite game. But the atmosphere of the site so captured me that I am still here and take an active part (as I believe) in the life of this wonderful resource. At the very beginning of my stay here, I was attracted to the POTW and GPOTW screen contests, I started to publish my screens in contests and people started to like them. This inspired me to publish more. Over time, I made friends and my activities here took on a new meaning. I would also like to note that my stay here is due to the work administration and staff, who create an great atmosphere that I do not want to leave. As you can see, I also became a part of this great team and even managed to get humble award. I would not like to talk about my merits, although it may be necessary to do so now, but I believe that the merits of a person can be spoken about by their deeds and the people who surround them.

    With respect to all
    Alexander.

    Recently Alexander78 has taken another step forward and has joined Content Staff as Manager of the Graphic Competitions. This is no small task, and now for the better part of three months he has performed brilliantly, which is just more evidence for his positive contribution to the community.


    Overall, Alexander78 is an important contributor and a solid candidate for Civitate. I ask you to confirm his application and welcome him into our ranks.

    And, of course, the traditional cute puppy picture.....

    I'm not sure I can support this application without the required animal pictures. Can the sponsor meet the requirement and pay the puppy tribute?

    Definitely a fine guy, Alexander. I noticed his contributions to the POTW when I still participated there and they are usually of great quality indeed.

    A few remarks come to mind though:

    As it is now, this application depends heavily on taking part in the screenshot competition. Certainly something that can be counted as a worthy contribution to this site, but in my view still a bit thin to base a Citizen application on. Of course there is the fact that Alexander now also manages the competition since early this year IIRC and that would have clinched it for me, were it not that this is a rather short period. As Treebeard would have said, perhaps this application is a bit hasty.

    I will have to think a bit about this application and generally about what contributions I personally think warrant Citizenship currently. While it is good to keep rewarding members who make a contribution to this site, there is always the danger of diminishing the value of said award. Especially when it seems that it takes less and less to actually be given that award.

    I have also notice Alexander, but I wonder why Civitate when it's obvious to me that he should be patronaged as Citizen.

    So, I tend to agree with Jadli here. Support.

    I thought so too and almost had written the same remark. But then I noticed that the Civitate description was not how I remembered it. Not sure if it has indeed been changed at some point, or that I simply am mistaken. For instance, I always thought that Civitate was primarily intended for those that are mainly active on the discussion forums.

    Current descriptions as present in the Wiki:

    Citizen Badge

    If a member of the forum does not wish to choose between being recognized as having strongest ties to either the Common Community or Total War parts of the forum, they may choose to simply wear the neutral "Citizen" badge as shown below:

    Civitate Badge

    Members who choose to be recognized as having strongest ties to the Common Community can select the Civitate badge shown below:

    Originally the rank of Civitate was the honour bestowed on forum members for both excellent Common Community and Total War contributions to the forums, with the distinction between Civitate and Artifex arriving some time in 2006. The rank of Civitate was instituted within the first version of the Syntagma.
    Artifex Badge

    Members who choose to be recognized as having strongest ties to the Total War community can select the Artifex badge shown below:

    The rank of Artifex was developed mid 2006 primarily as an attempt to further recognise the work of those members of the forum who contribute primarily to the Total War side of the forums - for example those who work as members of hosted modifications or write tutorials for use on the forums.


    And coming back to the application at hand, I support it going to the voting stadium. Still thinking on what I will vote though.

    Me too as I always thought Civitate was for members who have contributed in the D&D area, especially in the Mudpit as debaters.
