OKay so i'm necroposting and posting in the wrong thread but i can't start a new post in this page so it's the best i can do. I'm sure i'm not the only one that has noticed that no awards have been issued for a while, in fact this seems to be the most up to date thread and it's now two years old. Is there any plans to get the award system running again or is it officially dead, if the latter, is it worth removign the promise of awards from the competitions etc?

Also because i don't trust the medium of writing to get across my tone, i'm not griping or moaning. Just curious, by my calculation there are 72 awrds to issue just on the back of the painting and converting deathmatches, not including the people who managed to get through the APC and thats before we look at army of th month/quarter and the various recommendations.

I second that!

I cannot speak on behalf of the mods running competitions, rewards there whether Heresy Awards or Rep are their call.

On the basis of awards in general though, with the growth of the site having slowed compared to a few years back, the userbase is providing less opportunity to hand them out. Things like serious thought provoking discussions, well planned and executed RP threads, and comprehensive tactical articles for example aren't cropping up like they used to.

Keep in mind, Heresy did have a system that allows users to request awards for other users, but this feature hadn't been used by anyone since 2013 and I think it's gone now. The mods cannot keep track of everything everywhere, and combing threads for award worthy content is a tedious task.

There have been several discussion on the matter weighing options, from abolishing them to resetting them to doing away with announcement threads and simply issuing awards on an as earned basis.

If there are rewards owing for competitions, let us know and show the relevant thread. Everything else I will simply say feel free to voice ideas but do not expect immediate change.

I'll second what Serp has said there

If anybody is missing any awards for the competitions, send me a PM with a link to the "winning" thread and I'll have a look into getting at least some of these out there

When I first joined, I looked forward to the quarterly awards threads as a way of finding what people had been up to but yeah, the massive reduction in traffic has kind of killed those.

We seem to have a steady influx on new members, now if we could get them all posting half as much as the regular crowd.......

As Tawa said, PM him in regards to competition awards so that we can handle dishing those out. Backend awards (such as posts/membership length or staff picks) will be handled by myself.

Unless we create something new to replace the award system, everything will be moving back to a quarterly schedule. So keep an eye out folks, awards are gonna be coming before the end of Q1 2017.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

HI guys, like i said i wasn't intending it as a nag, just figured it might be worth finding out what was happening in case we got any newbs join in on comps or whatever and wonder why they didn't get any awards. I was about to say that i'd spend some time going through the old competitions and put together a list of winners, i'm unemplyed atm so i seem to have ome spare time on my hands.
But then i logged on today and discovered that i had been issued awards for winning competitions.
Has Dave gone through all of the backlog or is it still worth me doing? Thanks very much for my awards.

Awesome sauce. Do you want me to continue to issue the Baton at the end of the APC, and just give the 'winners' a mention in the awards threads? Or maybe hold them back until the next awards thread in line?
