Community and Spotlight Souls

Table of Contents

Each month, the pack leaders collectively decide to choose one or two different members to highlight them for their activity or contributions to the site. There are two distinctively different spotlights -- the traditional and long-standing Spotlight Soul, which highlights a character's In Character plots and distinctions, and the Community Soul, which highlights a players' general activity and Out of Character contributions to the site. Each Soul gets a special star in both their custom title, and next to their name in the Online List.

Spotlight Soul

  • The basis for Spotlight Soul is in character activity. Spotlight Souls are generally:
    • active
    • participating in interesting plots
    • participating in pack threads or pack activities, if applicable
    • creating and becoming involved in unique plots and storylines
    • writing threads that are interesting and fun to read
  • The Spotlight Soul is award to a character, not a player.
  • Out of character activity is not taken into consideration.

Community Soul

  • The basis for Community Soul is out of character activity. Community Souls are:
    • noticeably active and contributing to threads in the OOC areas
    • free of drama, attitude problems, etc. Always respectful, polite, etc.
    • contributing actively to their pack and assisting their leader (e.g., helping with contests or producing pack pride images, etc)
    • helping out on the Wiki or (correctly) answering newcomers' questions
    • making gifts and graphics and other goodies for people
    • active with all characters. (Note that while the basis of the Community Soul is OOC activity, if the member has a character s/he should be reasonably active with him or her. However, a member can still be chosen for this spot even without an active character.)
  • The Community Soul is awarded to a player, not a character.
  • In character specifics are not taken into consideration.
  • While there is ideally a Spotlight Soul every month, the Community Soul spotlight may be given less frequently, ie, it's okay to go a few months without a Community Soul.

Spotlights for September 2012

Spotlight Soul

Saqui Utina (Shawchert) has not been a member of AniWaya for very long, but she has contributed greatly to the tribe! From teaching others to harvesting crops, she has been quite involved in all kinds of fun plots and ideas (including a hurricane plot involving Town Hall and securing all the livestock - and even breaking her arm in the process!). Overall, Saqui has been a very active and fun member to have in AniWaya!

Community Soul

Although taken by surprise by suddenly becoming the sole leader of Anathema, Marie (Aeron, Amaranth, Liam, Zeneca, Imhotep) has rose to the occasion. She has been getting greatly involved in the pack (including revamping the rank table and the website!), and is always attentive to its members - Anathema is thriving because of it! Marie is a great example of a superb member and an awesome leader - hooray for Marie! :D

Spotlight Soul

Kenna Foxleigh (Westy) has recently been a great member of Cercatori d'Arte, forging friendships within the pack and exploring the outside as well. Not only has she been very active in participating in fun plots, she has helped rebuild the stables and round up the animals of the pack as well! Overall, Kenna is a great member to have - great job, Kenna!

Community Soul

This month, all the leaders agree that the 'Souls Assemblage (Kiri, Sie, Marit, Libri, and Mel) are all deserving of Community Soul! In just five days' notice, they put together an entirely new, awesome forum for us to continue roleplaying in, with all the old forums, info topics, and members with their titles -that is an amazing feat! Not only that, but the 'SA has always been there to help with problems, bugs, and super cool plots. They are constantly making 'Souls an awesome and spectacular place to be - you rock, guys!

Axelle Napier (Sammiie) She's been very active in Anathema, pitching ideas to leadership as well as getting thoroughly involved in the pack's plots and workings - not to mention getting involved with interesting individual plots as well.

This month's Community Soul is Raze (Vesper)! Raze is always crazy active with her characters, getting engaged in plots and threads without fail for a long time with all her characters, as well as being a great leader to Inferni alongside Sie. Not only that, but Raze has been an awesome mod, always answering questions, cleaning up the forum, and editing the crap out of the wiki - not to mention making lots of pretty tables for people to post with! Raze is definitely more than deserving of Community Soul - hooray for Raze! :)!

This month's Spotlight Soul is Sebastian Auditore! He's been an incredibly active character around Casa di Cavalieri, as well as travelling all over 'Souls to other packs and plotting with them as well as being a great example of a good pack member.

Congratulations, Ronnie; you deserve it! :)

Carya Aston (Adel) has not been around 'Souls very long, but in the time that she has, she's been a superb member - not only has she been very active in posting (with an adopted puppy no less!), she loves to participate in pack events, plot fun things with others in advance, and make Vinatta a great place to roleplay in general! :)

Since her return, Kitty (Valérian Coeur) has been a great member in 'Souls! She's been helping out by making maps and such for her pack, and has also been making graphical goodie gifts for lots of people. :) Combining that with the amount of plots and fun activities she's been getting involved in, Kitty is a great nomination for Community Soul!
