I agree with Belford, and I can see Janine's point, too. I think, perhaps, she was looking at service outside the Guild you are in?
I like Blade's idea of special-service oriented recognition. Hmmm. You know, in the SCA the various Shires and Baronies often have an award that is given for above and beyond service. How about something simillarly run?
Golden Linking Book Service Award
Given approximately every 6 months on
First Feast of the Maker - Leenovoo 10, March 27
The Day of Dancing - Leetar 21, September 3
for exceptional, above and beyond service to Uru and the Community.
2 months before the award date, email nominations would be taken for 1 week. Emails would include the nominees Name, KI #, and a description of the work they have done to deserve the nomination.
Those emails would then be examined by community leaders from throughout the Uru community (The Community Leaders group on UO would be an approprate set of people, it is already established, and it is a good representative cross-section of the community) who would narrow it down to 2-5 candidates.
Ideally, those nominations would get sent up to Cyan, and they would choose one, but in the absence of that, I think a community vote here on MOUL would be best.
We'd have to come up with some sort of recognition for them, A banner for their sig, for sure... in game it would be nice to have a KImail go out from the DRC, or a special Tshirt, or a plaque in the City that names got added to.
