The Order of the Lore, also referred to as Lorewards is a time honored tradition of Ixnay begun by User:Burgundie. Its inductees are recognized for their contribution to the regional lore. Historically, the Lorewards have not only served as a recognition of a member's importance to the lore continuum but also as an incentive for the development of lore. Pages which won their editors awards may be viewed at Award winning pages.

Rules and determinations

The Order of Lore determinations are made by weekly rotating panels of three members of the community. Nominations for lorewards are made by the panel foreman and subject to a simple yes or no vote of the remaining two members of the panel.

Daily awards are given for the best edit in a day not including infoboxes and other filler content. Daily winners require at least 1x 1000+ byte entry. A degree of discretion is given to the panelists to determine the winner of a day. Preference will be given to extraordinary contribution to collaborative global lore, lore written for someone else or for not just the player nation, overall quality of the written lore, or for extremely well written novel topics. Emerging precedent suggests that preference should be given towards size of edits to a page, but with smaller, more substantial articles given preference in any given day provided that they are not significantly smaller. Non-substantive list articles (like List of equipment of the Armed Forces of Urcea) will not be considered unless there are no other eligible entries in a day, in which case the editor will receive a runner-up status on the day if it is the only entry. A runner-up award for each day will also be given, although no medal will be conferred upon them. The winner of a daily award can not also win the runner-up award for the same day.

Weekly winners are determined from the total number of daily wins or runner up statuses per day with some consideration to consistency of edit volume, and monthly awards consider how many weeklies and dailies won by a member.

Monthly award winners will be nominated by User:Urcea and confirmed by the end of the month weekly panelists. Annual awards will consider all of the above while also considering high level page contributions and overall consistency. Rulings may be appealed in a straight forward and non-whiny way, but if appealed the ruling is final. Appeals should be focused on the criteria established herein.

Previous iterations of the award, awarded through 2020, used a different criteria. While the awards therein are considered valid, the records are incomplete. Lorewards were not issued between March 2020 and March 2022. Lorewards were also not issued between April and July 2022. When noted as "None Awarded", a date means that a lore panel made a determination for that date and that there were no eligible entries; when a date is skipped, it indicates no empaneled body considered that day.

Determinations are to be made using EST time.


Members who win will be awarded medals for their daily, weekly, monthly, and annual awards. A daily win will convey a single bronze medal . A weekly win will convey a silver medal . A monthly win will award three silver medals . An annual win will award a platinum Burg cross medal .

Medals are awarded on a hierarchy. Silver medal will be made from ten bronze medals . A gold medal will be made from five silver medals . A platinum Burg cross medal will be made from five gold medals.

Medal counts were reset with the reinstitution of the order in March 2022. Previous medal counts were ignored and all medals are issued from March 16, 2022 onwards.
