Well, normally I'm not a big fan of awards given by other
people to recognize the "best of" something. But I thought
it only fair to mention that Vawton, the former IRC Division
Manager, made his choices for IRC Division Manager's Choice
Awards and announced them on January 30.
The results can be found here, on a link posted on the front
In short, Pegasus was selected as the best IRC sim in the
division, beating out three other sims. While I'm glad to be
recognized as the best sim, I can't help but point out that I
knew this all along, and I wouldn't have been more or less
happy had we not won. Since I know we're the best already.
Also, our own Farrell was selected as the best department
head for ALL IRC sims -- quite a feat, considering the number
of department heads each ship has, and the number of
nominees. Congratulations, Mr. Farrell!
I feel compelled to point out that Pegasus was the most
highly awards sim twice over -- it was the only sim to net 2
awards (Best Sim and Best Department Head), with every other
sim netting only 1 or 0. It was also the sim with the
highest number of honorable mentions (at 6), making us the
most decorated at 8 total recognitions.
Here's a brief rundown:
BEST SIM -- Winner, Pegasus (of course)
BEST CO -- Honorable Mention, me
BEST XO -- Honorable Mention, Baralu
BEST DEPARTMENT HEAD -- Winner, Farrell
Honorable Mention, Hawk
BEST JUNIOR OFFICER -- Honorable Mention, Catherine
Honorable Mention, Fox
Congratulations to everyone listed, but if your name isn't
here, don't fret. Two reasons not to ...
One, every simmer together helps make this sim the winner
that it is. For that, you are all equally deserving of
credit and my personal thanks. As Best Sim, you all are
winners. Running this sim has been fun and continues to be
fun -- and that's the reason I am still doing it.
TWo, these aren't the important awards. Those are coming in
March, once Season 2 ends.
