    Time for a new and updated thread. Please read though the updates before nominating.

    We are now accepting nominations from the Community for those individual Members that consistently demonstrate a commitment to excellence in one or more of the following areas:
    1. BYC Educator: [​IMG] This is a Staff awarded accolade. We have changed this award to reflect only the highest standards. Only those who adhere to the highest standards of knowledge and education will be considered for this award. While nominations will be accepted for this award, the Staff will thoroughly vet each person and only those who meet/exceed the Staff's high criteria will be awarded the Educator Badge. Nominees must, among other points, have a verifiable reputation of providing information more than just "common knowledge," assist members in a positive and courteous manner, be open to feedback without getting defensive, and should maintain their good standing with little disciplinary action for rules violation.
    2. BYC Friend: [​IMG] These individuals are just plain fun and great to have around! They are our favorite comedians and enablers; our most cluckative. They are always accessible to lend a cordial and helping hand. Their enthusiasm encourages us, their empathy comforts us.
    3. BYC Spirit: [​IMG] These individuals best demonstrate ALL-AROUND outstanding service and commitment to the BYC members and community. While maybe not expert educators, they are trusted Educators nonetheless, as well as Friends to all. They are dedicated to the BYC Community as a whole, and strive to help promote, support and uphold its values and goals.
    4. BYC Greeter: 13_1493494659l.png These individuals are our BYC "Welcome Wagon!" They are the members that are most active in welcoming the new members to our community, especially in the "New Member Introductions" forum. Nominees will be judged on a) How long they've been welcoming new members; b) How many new members they welcome; and c) The quality and friendliness of their welcome.

    4. Member must be active and in good standing in the BYC community to receive and/or retain awards.
    5. Members may not nominate themselves for any award; all self-nominations will be voided. Members may not ask for nominations. Those doing so will have their nominations voided.
    6. Qualified Awardees will be announced quarterly and medals given.

    Tips for nominating
    1. Be sure you are spelling the username correctly. Please don't use the @ symbol.
    2. Please be sure your nominee doesn't already have the medal you are nominating them for.
    3. Please do not nominate yourself. This includes using alias accounts to nominate yourself. Self nominations will be voided.
    4. Please do not tell your nominee that you nominated them. All nominations should be confidential. Please do not post about the nominations you have done on the forum. If you have questions about a certain nomination, please PM a Staff member. Confidentiality keeps everything fair and avoids hurt feelings.
    5. Please do not ask for or otherwise solicit nominations. Doing so will void any nominations you receive.
