Hopscotch Forum Leader Awards! 2022

Hello everyone! It is with great excitement that we’re bringing back the… :hopscotch: Hopscotch Forum Leader Awards! :hs_space_pod:

About the awards

The leader awards is an award ceremony where we award community members that we think are worthy of extra recognition because of something they have done. See below for more information and for the available awards.

Community Nominated Awards:

  • Most Positive Commenter[1]
  • Most Improved Commenter[2]
  • Forum Guru[3]
  • The Stickler[4]
  • Writer’s Corner[5]
  • Artist’s Canvas[6]
  • Coding Guru[7]
  • Double Duty[8]
  • Candle Burner[9]

Rules

With these awards, you (the community) can nominate someone you think deserves this award. With that comes a couple of ground rules to follow though:

  • Please refrain from commenting on other people’s nominations. Do not say that you disagree or second a nomination.
    • This is to avoid influencing others and also to make sure no feelings get hurt.
  • That being said, please do not nominate your friend just because they’re your friend or because they asked to be nominated. Nominate someone because you feel they deserve the award.
    • We understand that they may be your friend but we don’t want relationships like that influencing the outcome of these awards.
  • Please don’t self-nominate or ask to be nominated
    • While it is awesome that you feel you deserve the award, wait until someone else nominates you. These are community awards to give some excellent forumers recognition. While you are an amazing forumer, that’s not the point of this, and self-nominations do not reflect the ideas of the whole community. Asking to be nominated is essentially the same.

Leader Nominated Awards:

There will also be some special awards that only leaders will vote on. These will be announced later, so stay tuned and keep your eyes open!

A thank you from the leaders!

These awards are a way of saying “thank you!” to our wonderful and friendly community. We will celebrate this not only with the awards but also with some special rewards - not just for the award winners!

  • First of all, everyone who nominates someone will receive 20 HopBytes and a Leader competition participation badge. Note that these are unstackable, so no matter if you nominate 1 person or 5, you will still get exactly 20 HopBytes and be awarded the badge only once.
  • Second, we are going to have a themed pop-up shop around the awards. Keep your eyes open - and check in on how your HopBytes wallet is doing while waiting for the shop to appear!
  • And finally, the winner in each category will receive a special forum badge with one of the Hopscotch characters as the badge icon. The badge icon will double as an emoji title that you can put beside your username (fully combinable with previous emoji titles + pronoun titles if you have them).
