Whoa, I think someplace just froze over!
Truth be told, I am too unless we have some way to make sure that the person nominated for a 2nd Grade ribbon, if we decide to do it, has done what they say they have.
I wanted to hear what shalom itay had in mind before I jumped on any "bandwagon", still do. However, I think we need to make sure the other is up and running first.
And hear you shall.
(on a side note: It is nice to hear that one's opinion is valued by respected members of this site).
Well, as I see it there should be no difference in identifying nominations
for 2nd and 1st grade honors. The system should be the same for both.
IMO, 1st grade should be awarded to BTU members that their work helped bring money to the CBT franchise. By doing so they are driving the product
and "keeping it alive".
1.Sculpting a mini for IWM to mass produce.
2.Writing text for a new Catalyt's TRO.
3.Painting a mini that will appear in a new rule-book, etc..
The question if the honor should be granted to people that get pay
for doing this is another matter, but IMO is yes (they probably dont get much).
2nd grade is for the "gray area" as some see it.
It should be given to BTU members that were mentioned in print.
For example "Special Thanks" on page 4 of FM:UPDATES.
I really cant see a reason not to honor people that helped push the
product, may it be a more visual contribution (1st) or a concealed one (2nd), if the franchisee acknowledged them, why not BTU?
Now let me rise another issue,
I dont know if BTU is the first site to give this type of ribons,
but whatever we decide will set a benchmark for other sites in the future.
I dont think we should be seen as the ones that disposed people of their
contribution to the world of CBT.
