    Default [Award] makanyane for Novus

    Makanyane for Novus

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

    Kidding, she's done more than enough to deserve a wee bit more. When taking a look at the wiki, it can in almost its entirety be completely attributed to Makanyane. Almost all the layout, innovation and maintenance is done by her. While not to diminish others people work on the wiki and the contributions made, most of those are facilitated, encouraged and nursed by Makanyane, especially since 2017/18. You can look at the wiki's recent changes and in almost all instances the vast majority of the screen will be filled with changes done by Mak, whether you're looking on your mobile phone or a 75" Plasma TV. Going into detail one can view her entire list of contributions here. Her oldest entry was on the 26th of May 2007, and her newest? Today. Between those lies a span of over a decade, and several thousand entries and changes saved. 10838 to be precise as of writing this if I've counted correctly, though the number is has almost certainly increased in between the time of writing and you reading this. Most of these changes come from 2017/18 and onwards, and thus she's played a vital role as Content Director of the wiki in keeping it up to date, fresh and relevant. Whether it's updating templates, writing large entries or just housekeeping others work with adding categories and sorting the technical aspect of a wiki out. Which also brings me to my next point.

    Not only does Makanyanes work on the wiki result the potential of it being seen as a one-(wo)man project, but she actively encourages and greatly facilitates the opportunity for other members to participate and contribute. Especially through the "Discuss the Wiki here!" thread she makes a marvelous job in both in laying the foundation for other users to contribute (see the first post), coming with specific requests and suggestions for people looking for ways to contribute and encouragement for work already done. A lot of this discussion and talk also takes place on the most active channel of the TWC Discord server, the wiki-chat. Here she activley participates and encourages discussion on several aspects of improvement of the wiki, ranging from subjects not covered that ought to have a page, to the extent of creating a new skin. The most recent overseen project is the complete rework of the FAQ.

    I know for a fact that several users such as CommodusIV and Akar, including myself would not have been able to contribute to the wiki to any degree had it not been for Makanyane's dedication, upkeep, maintenance and active work on the wiki. It would be a shambles of a place without her, and Makanyane might be one of the most contributing staff members out there. I know she's not too fond of awards, but she thoroughly deserves this. I hope the rest of you agree that her work on the wiki goes above and beyond and is truly exceptional; that she therefore is fully deserving of the Novus.

    She is responsible for this badge of mine. It's only right I be around the front of the line responsible for hers, yes?

    I doubt she would accept citizenship, though.

    That is expected, this is all about the reward. If she does though, does that mean I'll be her patron?

    Luckily you can have the award without having to become a Citizen. Well, I have seen this with the Opifex at least.

    In my view, anybody that is not in favour of this should get a one way ticket to the loony bin.

    It's just past midnight and I foresee this to be the easiest decision of the day, support.

    Oppose, because 1 Novus isn't enough.

    You forgot her involvement in the Modding Awards Committee for 2 years now where she's doing also an amaizing job
    That's an easy support.
    However, not sure she'll acccept it because large awards include automatically the citizen rank, not a thing she likes (from my knowledge) but she can accept the award without the citizenry

    Actually it's automatic patricianship, not citizenship, that is bestowed. There are several patricians who are not citizens, such as Roma Victrix.

    Seriously, thanks for the vote of confidence that was a very nice and flatterring OP, and thanks for drawing attention to the Wiki. But as a couple of other people have guessed here I'm not after citizenship or really any other medals, I think this would be double counting contributions already awarded. I've got the Laurel Cluster for work in Modding Awards Committee , the Major version of the Wiki Medal for previous work on the wiki and a high level of Scribe's Quill for work on it whilst in Content Staff which I think really covers it!

    I know Roma Victrix once were a citizen and one reason that comes to mind are infractions and/or citizen referrals (only).

    I know both Aradan and MasterOfOne once were citizens (Artifex), but I think both resigned their citizenship.
