The Daily Bugle

Senator Hines has revealed how mutants will be handled: Sentinels.

A rumor traveled the circles of the supernatural. Mutants heard a safe, underground railroad was being started, inquire at the Summit. The beyond sought the strange power said to rest at the Summit of New York City. The gossip flitted amongst the rest: valuable information was to come to light when dawn broke over the Summit.

PostSubject: Prestige Awards for Threads   Thu Jan 03, 2013 11:56 pm

First, I thank all those who volunteer their time as mods and admins. I'm glad to see that encouraged here through rewards. I think a prestige system is also great for a playership. However, I have concerns.

Please see my comments here for the origin of this thread: http://marvelunlimited.forumotion.com/t1664-something-wicked-this-way-comes-prestige

Basically I have concern over the guidelines / judging criteria and certainly for consistency. It would appear based on the guide: http://marvelunlimited.forumotion.com/t23-the-guide-to-fame-or-infamy-prestige that either there are new criteria and the guide needs updating or we need to unify our vision.

LENGTH

I will say Length seems to be arbitrarily awarded. It needs to be more formally marked and reviewed.

As an example, Daddy Issues was shorter than Something Wicked This Way Comes yet the former was awarded more. http://marvelunlimited.forumotion.com/t1669-daddy-isues-prestige and http://marvelunlimited.forumotion.com/t1664-something-wicked-this-way-comes-prestige

QUALITY OF STORY

This can be an opinion I suppose based on the reviewer but it still shouldn't be completely arbitrary. What are they judged by?

For example, I expected Something Wicked This Way Comes to fair better than Today's Forecast http://marvelunlimited.forumotion.com/t1647-today-s-forecast-prestige

QUALITY OF WRITING

Again I think specific criteria need to be set. What are the expectations? They seem much higher and stricter than I expected, based on the guide, yet also a bit arbitrary.

Out of a possible 20, I thought 9 for my first thread of Today's Forecast was a bit conservative. Certainly ego is a factor there. But then 8 in Something Wicked? When the guideline of 7 is negative and "a small paragraph" for each post, I have to assume I should get more.

CONCLUSION

The basis is that I felt I deserved more, but even in comparison things aren't adding up or seeming fair/equal. If nothing else, some criteria have to be spelled out, which will hopefully help both sides in expectations and grading/judging/rewarding. I appreciate my concerns being looked to.

Thanks.

Since you guys are still using my system, I need to stress that it was originally designed to be rather archaic due to the owner of the site it was made for having a hard up for giving even people who write unintelligble drivel to still be rewarded. Without the same desire to reward fecal excrement disguised as roleplaying, it will always be lackluster.

Confused, I think you're confused. There were more posts in Something Wicked. There were 21 posts though a couple were kind of short. Maybe it's possible you missed both pages?

I completely understand that Today's Forecast wasn't a huge story topic. It was introductory though so I'm glad it gave insight into the characters. It is seeming to me that you missed parts of Something Wicked and that's the issue here. I had over 800 words in my first two posts in that thread alone and that's not counting OOC comments so it seems it was missed. Can you confirm whether you saw/read both pages? It's not always clear that there are more than one page to some topics.

All that aside, this isn't about you specifically but what criteria is used for judging. Nothing more is given than what's in the Guide and thus I think it's important for everyone to be on the same page.

Thank you.

I'm not trying to stir up any hard feelings, but I still believe we should make clearer the criteria for the prestige awarding. I think it will help in the future by ensuring people understand what to expect, especially if disagreements arise.
