Badge recommendations / nominations - Read the first post!
 
Welcome to the thread for badge recommendations! If you would like to recommend someone for a badge, please do the following.
  1. Check out the Badge page and the list below to make sure you're recommending the right badge.
  2. Make sure you spell the person's name correctly when you recommend them--we can't award badges to non-existent people. :)
  3. Check the badge tab on the profile page of the member to make sure they don't already have the badge you want to recommend.
    (Members can choose which of their badges to display on posts so simply viewing one of their posts is not a good indication in all cases.)
  4. Please include the name of the badge you'd like to see awarded.
  5. Include the reason for the badge recommendation. Link the thread(s) or forum(s) where someone has won a contest, been especially helpful, made their notable contributions, and so on.
  6. People who have been temp-banned are not eligible to receive badges for 6 months after their return from their most recent ban. Permanently banned people are not eligible to receive any badges at all.

If you do not follow all the instructions above, your post will be deleted and the badge won't be awarded until you supply the necessary information.

This is also not a complaint thread about who got a badge and who didn't. This is a thread only for recommendations for someone to receive a badge.

Please note the staff aren't online 24/7, so please give us a few days to get things done. We like giving out badges, however, so we'll try to get it done as quickly as possible!



How to Recommend Specific Badges
(Work in progress, please be patient. May change before this is all nailed down.)

http://www.lucasforums.com/images/medals/sm_jester.gif LF Jester Badge
If a member has made you laugh out loud pretty hard with one of their forum posts, you can come in and recommend that they get the Jester badge. Provide a link to their post and get at least one other member (not the member you want to get the badge) to second your recommendation and that's it. That lucky person gets a shiny new badge featuring Max from Sam & Max :D (Only posts made on the actual forums are eligible; those made in social groups, blogs, private messages, visitor messages or other such limited audience locations are not eligible for consideration). Edit: Nominations for the Jester badge will be brought to the staff for a vote instead of being given out after two nominations.

http://www.lucasforums.com/images/medals/sm_helpful.gif Helpful! Badge
If a member has consistently been helpful to others, providing detailed responses to questions or other useful information or services you may recommend them to get the Helpful! badge. Please provide links to some of the threads you feel they should be awarded this badge for.

http://www.lucasforums.com/images/medals/sm_veteran.gif Forum Veteran
Some people have left their mark on communities they participate in, actively contributing to shaping the prevalent atmosphere and norms to some degree. Through for example personality, entertaining or thought-provoking posts these members are known and recognized by others. This badge can be recommended for people without whom you feel this place wouldn't be the same.

http://www.lucasforums.com/images/me...m_roleplay.gif Roleplayer
This badge can be awarded to threadmasters and other major contributors of notable long running game series in one of the Roleplaying forums. Please provide appropriate links when nominating a participant.

http://www.lucasforums.com/images/me...ontributor.gif Notable Contributor
Recognition for members who have made significant contributions to the forum or community sites well beyond the ordinary. This can for example be things like regularly reviewing other members' fan fiction, writing detailed walkthroughs/FAQs for games, contributing design and artwork for sites, making tools that contribute to community activity growth for one of the modding communities etc. Something that adds notable value for the forum community or attracts new people to join. If you feel someone has made such an extra noteworthy contribution, please specify what it is with links if appropriate. Edit: Nominations for this badge will be brought to the staff for a vote instead of being given out after two nominations.

http://64.20.36.214/lucasforums.com/...picstarter.gif Hot Topic Starter
Given to members who have started a long-running thread that has received at least 1000 replies. Threads of a spammy forum game nature (where the replies has no real content, only contain one word etc) do not qualify for this badge. Provide a link to the thread in question when making a nomination.


New Badges

If you would like to make a suggestion for a new type of badge to be added to the forum, please post it in this thread.

Note to all staff giving badges: When you give out a badge, please put a post with the name and the badge given so that we can do a thread search to make sure we don't issue duplicate badges. Thanks!

Sabretooth 02-10-2009 10:10 AM

One question ma'am, can you recommend yourself for a badge?

>.>
<.<
:shades2:

Lynk Former 02-10-2009 10:18 AM

Obviously not :dozey:

jrrtoken 02-10-2009 11:44 AM

I nominate Astrotoy7 for the Helpful Badge, for his obviously gargantuan help in General Tech Discussion.

Done. --Jae

Samnmax221 02-10-2009 01:20 PM

Laserschwert should have a helpful badge or a notable contributor badge for his work on the Mixnmojo soundtrack page, and more recently the Lucasarts posters project.

TiE23 02-10-2009 09:06 PM

I nominate Boba Rhett for the notable contributor badge because he gave us the slave elf and the smoking Yoda avatar, a symbol of my childhood. *sniff*

I also give a nod to Dath Maximus for the Veteran badge, his presence has really changed the feeling of Yoda's Swamp in the last year, always pushing people's buttons and providing comic relief as he probably drives the mods nuts.

Excellent suggestion, he's been given the Notable Contributor badge.

mimartin 02-11-2009 10:59 AM

I would like to nominate stoffe for the HelpFul! badge. There are far too many things that anyone on the staff could list that would make the badge a parody if one of our most helpful members is not awarded this badge. However, stoffe’s advice and recommendations in the Oblivion thread and other game threads alone merits this award. I’m sure Cygnus Q’ol would second my nomination.

tk102 02-13-2009 11:30 AM

^ I agree with you mimartin.

I would also nominate matt--, the original Network Unexploder, for the Notable Contributor badge. For years he kept Lucasforums and LFNetwork running smoothly, set up new LFNetwork sites, created the backup scripts we still use today, and during times of server catastrophes was key to their resurrection during the wee hours of the morning.

He's still the go to guru when it comes to sysadmining advice around here.

Dath Maximus 02-13-2009 05:32 PM

since i never listen to rules, i think i should be nominated for a "king of the swamp" badge, im sure i can pressure others into backing this concept

Kuuki 02-13-2009 10:50 PM

I would like to recommend K_Kinnison for the 10yr vet, 1) bunch of CLOSE to 10yr vet's have gotten the badge, and he hasnt, his reg date is nov '99
2) (poss 'Helpful!' badge) he does well on estimating the approx number (and/or the # of post per person) in the 1yr thread over at XWA :D

[edit]

1 more thing
I'd like to recommend 'Deac' for the 'Fan fiction' badge for creating what would be the 15 + 6 original RPG threads in XWA and RSRP forums, known as the 'Cantina Scenario'

The Fan-fiction badge is for winning a fanfic competition. The 10 year badge will get awarded in November. :)
Please include a link or two of what you mean for helpful--I can't figure out what you're talking about there. --Jae

EnderWiggin 02-14-2009 02:12 AM

I feel like the people given the helpful badge were good choices.

But the way it's worded, it doesn't seem that it has to do with modding, so I nominate Jae for it.

She's been helpful pretty much since the day she joined LF.

_EW_

EnderWiggin 02-14-2009 03:15 AM

Also it would be a travesty to forget T7nowhere. Definitely deserves the veteran award, and I recommend the helpful badge as well.

Perhaps Sithy for the Jester award? Or is that a Jmac-only badge?

_EW_

Kj°len 02-14-2009 04:29 AM

I would like to recommend Ikhnaton for the Notable Contributor badge for his tireless labor; staying fun while maintaining a stoic discipline for his job; cleaning up the messes of RogueSquadron.Net forums during the golden days. Many of such messes were my own, so this is my way of telling him that I appreciate his imperturbable work.

Jae Onasi 02-14-2009 05:29 PM

Badges awarded to:
T7Nowhere (helpful, veteran)
Ikhnaton (notable contributor)
El Sitherino (LFN jester)
stoffe (helpful, notable contributor)
matt-- (notable contributor)

Not to be a bother, but I don't think T7 was actually awarded the vet badge.

_EW_

I could have sworn I gave him the badge, but it's fixed now anyway. :) --Jae

Jae Onasi 02-15-2009 09:23 AM

I've just pruned the thread for off-topic comments or badge requests that didn't comply with the requirements in the first post. If you want your badges awarded, follow the instructions there, please. :)

HK-42 02-16-2009 06:59 PM

Name: Star Admiral
Badge: Helpful!
Reason: SA is very helpful in The Padawan Lounge, Modding Requests, The Work Bench, and the Holowan. Almost all of the post I have seen by him were very helpful. He might not have been around for long, but he is a helpful member. Just check out his posts.

(God it felt like I just wrote something for school)

Please link some of these helpful threads for us within 3 days. I'll delete the post after that time if there's no action on this. Thanks, Jae

Here are a few, most recent ones, more coming up.(These are from the 17th to the 6th.)

I would like to nominate Bee Hoon for the Helpful Badge, in recognition of her work in the CEC.

She always has something positive and helpful to say the writers there. As for proof, most of her posts in the CEC should be evidence enough. ;)

I'd ask for links, but I play in that forum myself so I've seen the threads where she's helpful. :xp: --Jae

igyman 02-17-2009 01:25 PM

I'd like to recommend Scar Da Kookee for the jester badge. I'm sure he has a lot more of them, but this post had me laughing really loud after a very long and hard day.

No worries, igyman--I laughed my butt off too. :D --Jae

The Doctor 02-17-2009 05:47 PM

I'd like to recommend Alkonium and his cast for the Roleplayer badge, for their work on the Sith Resurrection series. They've all done a fantastic job, and deserve recognition.

In fact, I think I can say that everyone on this list, without exception, is more than deserving of recognition for their contributions to the roleplaying communities throughout the Network.

I've seen Alkonium's work and know he deserves it. Please list specific links, reasons (like the one you gave for Alkonium for the ones not already in the RP) and names for the rest of the folks for us to evaluate. Not everyone is familiar with the forum and knows where to search--you'll have to help us out on that. Thanks, Jae.

Yar-El 02-17-2009 06:34 PM

I nominate Chevron 7 locke for the LFN Jester badge due to his halarious contribution to this entire group - http://www.lucasforums.com/group.php?groupid=78

Look for CommanderQ's second nomination. :)

CommanderQ 02-17-2009 06:47 PM

I second Yar-El's nomination for Chevron due to his Jester-like behaviour:D It contributed greatly to the social group:D

Rogue Nine 02-17-2009 07:41 PM

Sorry, only forum posts are eligible. Those made in social groups are not.

I hope that this has just been lost in the shuffle, and not actually consciously ignored :)

Jae Onasi 02-18-2009 12:33 AM

@EW--it would have been too weird to give myself the badge, so I couldn't. One of the other staffers did that, and I appreciate it. :)

Badges given:
Bee Hoon: Helpful
Scar Da Kookee: LF Jester
Alkonium: Roleplayer

Alkonium 02-18-2009 09:18 PM

I'd like to nominate JediMaster12 for the Roleplayer badge. Even though I started the Sith Resurrection Series, she's just as much of an integral part of the Series as I am.

Bee Hoon 02-19-2009 09:18 AM

Thanks, Astor Kaine and Jae! <3

igyman 02-19-2009 10:37 AM

After getting an answer from The stoffe in the badge recommendation thread, I'd like to suggest Ahto's avatar/signature thread for revision as there are a lot of members who've definitely earned the helpful badge for their contributions there. From checking the last five pages, I can name Rev7 and Thanatos9t, but there are 25 more pages and surely many more people who've contributed significantly with their picture editing skills and they shouldn't go unrewarded.

You mind doing the hard work for us by going through the thread yourself and picking out all of the candidates with links to their posts and such? XD I mean if it isn't too much to ask lol. I know, 25 pages worth of stuff is pretty huge... HEUG LIKE XBOX!

Lynk's right. The staff honestly doesn't have time to go through 25 pages of material to go pick out people, and we'd really prefer not to be accused yet again of favoritism if we give an award to one person but not another. I'm sorry, but we have to stick with the first post, even if it means more work for those of you making the recommendations. We want to give you all badges, but we need your help to make this process easier for everyone.

You have to have a name, a reason, and at least one link for us, and you have to do it for every single person you'd like to see receive the award. One recommendation for one person for one award, please, though you may make multiple recommendations in one post. Thank you for your understanding.

Alkonium 02-19-2009 01:34 PM

These are links to the post counts of each of my RPs in my Series:

With the exception of the fifth and first installments, JediMaster12's number of posts is second only to my own. In the case of the fifth, hers actually outnumbers mine, and in the first, her post count comes in third to Xbx_Inthusiast and myself. Also, she was technically the first to make any art based on the series.

Done--thanks. --Jae

Jae Onasi 02-19-2009 02:24 PM

Badge given:
JediMaster12: Role playing
Thanatos9t: Helpful
Rev7: Helpful
Bob Lion54: Helpful

Marius Fett 02-20-2009 08:06 AM

I think Negative Sun should get a Helpful badge, for the help and advice he provides in the Tech Forum.

igyman 02-20-2009 09:33 AM

I'm amazed at my own speed. :)

Anyway, as per Lynk's suggestion and in agreement with Jae I went through the Ahto Avatar/Sig request thread and made a (hit)list of people who've made contributions there and should be eligible for a badge. I probably went a little bit overboard with this, but the list is, as I expected, huge and since some people have made one contribution while others have made more, I provided the links to all the candidates' posts that contain contributions. That way the staff can decide on the exact criteria for a badge. I've also removed Thanatos9t and Rev7 from the list, as they already got their badges, along with myself to hopefully remove any doubts about lack of objectivity. I apologize in advance to anyone I might have left out, if there are such people, please PM me with links to your posts in the thread and I'll add you to the list.

Additional note: There were some posts in which images failed to load, but I checked via "quote & reply" and the links are there.

And now The List:

Show spoiler


Don't add more to the list than what's here currently or it might get missed. Please start a new post for any new names. :) Thanks. --Jae

Edit: No problem, Jae. So far it seems no additions will be made. Looks like I haven't left anyone out (except myself for obvious reasons. ;) )

Jae Onasi 02-20-2009 09:33 AM

^
I'll second that one.
Badge given:
Negative Sun: Helpful

igyman--I just saw your list. I don't have enough time to do them before I go to work, but I'll get to them over the weekend. :)

Marius Fett 02-20-2009 02:47 PM

Heh, me again. :D

I think Jonathan7, and you yourself Jae, should get a noteable contributors badge, for all the work you've both done over at Kavar's over the past few months.
