    Default How can it be?

    How can it be that the moderator of the historical forum do not have the historical award?

    It makes no sense.

    I suspect is rather like a class teacher not giving himself the "Best achiever of the year" award. I believe Gregoshi made the initial nominations for the historical award and understandably was reluctant to nominate himself. If there was an award for best Moderator, however, I'd certainly want him to be nominated.

    BTW, congratulations to the history award holders! Very well deserved.

    That makes sense, but couldn't someone put Gregoshi up for nomination (like another moderator, for example)? Or can only Gregoshi nominate people?

    And congratualations to all history award holders from me too.

    Ahem. I don't have the History award simply because about 98% of the Monastery regulars are more passionate and knowledgable about history than I am. I do like history (and read about it), but not nearly to the degree many of you do. Think about it. Apart from occassional "behave" posts, how many replies have I made that actually contribute to a thread? And of those, how many were just questions? Most of the regulars here have contributed more in one thread than I have since I became moderator. I am impressed everyday by the broad and indepth knowledge of history demostrated by the patrons of the Monastery. The bottomline: there is a very long list of patrons more worthy of such an award than I.

    So modest...

    Personally, why not the award holders simply nominate Gregoshi for an award?

    It doesn't have to be award holders: I nominate Gregoshi for a Roxxor Mod award! Informal and unofficial, of course, but a wonderful, dutiful and responsible Mod he is (I've been reading the Monastery for a long time before I actually made my debut) and I think he deserves some recognition for it. We shall have the area below Gregoshi's profile encrusted with badges in no time!

    In other news: What does it take to get a historian badge? Could you clarify this so everyone (read: me) knows?
