Title: AME is recruiting!
Post by: BenWH on January 05, 2008, 06:47:41 AM
We are seeking dedicated folks with credibility within the NWN1 and/or 2 communities to come and join us in a project to provide a set of NWVault sanctioned awards for the Vault. The Awards are recognition for both modules and content, and are judged by a panel of credible (and hardworking) people with a proven track record of community contribution; be it building, modelling, supporting or playing. Yes, we want people who play a lot as well as people who build a lot, because we want a real cross section in order to judge properly. If you are interested in being part of this team, please PM Ame Chairman Andarian here on these forums, with a short NWN based biography of your contributions. You can list whatever you feel is relevant: from making 10 Hall of Fame pieces of music, to playing 100 modules. If you would like to help with this service to the community, and you can commit some of the time required, we'd love to hear from you!

Our goals:
For the community are to:
1.   Highlight excellence in modding and content in order to help people find the best examples of exactly what they are looking for. To do this we will offer awards in several categories, ensuring maximum relevance for the community.
2.   Be recognised as a credible body to make recommendations (via awards), based on the past experience and conduct of our members who make up the Academy.
For module and content creators, to:
1.   Recognise and reward excellence in module making and custom content creation by bringing it to the attention of the community.
2.   Offer equal opportunity to all creators, by not only examining work that is in the public eye.

What we are not:
·   A mechanism to judge the popularity of modules or content as judged by the community at large – this function is amply served already by the Vault ratings and MotY competition.
·   An organisation to individually critique works for the public. This role is already well served by the Review Guild.

Will you join us?
