Awards and Membership

The Order of the Lore has four standard awards that it gives out. Any recipient of an award is a member of the order 'ex officio'. There are also three frequency incentives that it maintains as well, they are: the palme de bronze (Eng: Bronze Palm)WikiProject Scouting BSA Eagle Bronze Palm.svg, palme d'argent (Eng: Silver Palm) WikiProject Scouting BSA Eagle Silver Palm.svg, palme d'or (Eng: Gold Palm) WikiProject Scouting BSA Eagle Gold Palm.svg, the palme de platine (Eng: Platinum Palm) WikiProject Scouting BSA Eagle Silver Palm.svg, and the palme de platine avec diamant (Eng: Platinum Palm with diamond) WikiProject Scouting BSA Eagle Silver Palm.svg. These palms are awarded to members who have received the same Loreward 5, 25, 50, 100 and 500 times respectively. The palms are worn on the Burgundian Cross of the award, horizontally. Members are allowed to display up to three palms on the Loreward to which it is attached. While it is not specifically called out, it is typical for members to wear the three highest palms.

Within the Order, there is a secret society known as the Sacrosanctum of Elan. Very little is known about the Sacrosanctum beyond the fact that Burg is the Supreme Wizard. Membership is known only to those privileged to be a part of the society. Members are suspected of being puppet masters and manipulators of lore related activity in Ixnay.

Criteria for Inclusion

As mentioned above any member of an award is a member of the order 'ex officio'. Players who rejoin Ixnay are not returned to the Current Member rolls until they win another loreward. Upon doing so they are added to the roll in the order of their most recent enrollment, not their original spot.

Criteria for Exclusion

If a player ragequits, is banned, or is inactive for a period of time deemed excessive by the Grand Master, typically over a month, they will be moved to the Previous Members list. The reason for being struck from the Current Member rolls will be noted. Current and acting officers of the Order, namely the Grand Master of the Order, are ineligible from receiving any lorewards. The one exception is if a petition (verbal or written) of any number of the active membership is raised to the officers of the Order. In that situation, the officers may choose to adhere to the will of the membership, or conduct a coup d'humilité and dismiss the petition in favor of a member.

Daily Loreward

The level with the most stringent criteria, the daily loreward is given to the member who has contributed the most in any given day. The user must have contributed at least 1000 bytes of new information to a single forward "main" (not talk) page. Once this threshold is reached all additional changes made by a user, no matter what size or on which page, are added to the users total. Formatting is technically included but in a tie the page with more information will win. In the event of a tie between a user with more personal lore and someone with more collective lore, the collective lore will win.

In the event that there is not sufficient activity, no award will be awarded.

Weekly Loreward

The Weekly Loreward is slightly more subjective but is still given to the member who has contributed the most, or has contributed significantly to the regional lore, or has contributed the most to IxWiki in a given week. The final decision is up to the Grand Master of the Order, but can be appealed, see Appealing a Ruling. The week is defined as Sunday through Saturday.

In the event that there is not sufficient activity, no award will be awarded.

In the event of a close runner up the player with more #TopicTuesday lore will be given an benefit of up to 5k to beat out the winner who has less or no Topical lore. For example: HibernoChampion did 43,953 bytes of lore for the week and Vespia did 40,402 bytes but did much more lore in regard to the Topic, Vespia would win the weekly.

Monthly Loreward

The Monthly Loreward is given to the member who has contributed the most, or has contributed significantly to the regional lore, or has contributed the most to IxWiki in a given month. The final decision is up to the Grand Master of the Order, but can be appealed, see Appealing a Ruling. The month is defined as a calendar month.

Every month will have a loreward awarded, regardless of the level of activity.

Annual Loreward

The Annual Loreward is given to the member who has contributed the most, or has contributed significantly to the regional lore, or has contributed the most to IxWiki in a given year. The final decision is up to the Grand Master of the Order, but can be appealed, see Appealing a Ruling. The annum is defined as a Burgundian Lore Year (BLY) (3/18/X-3/17/X+1).

Unlike all other lorewards, the Annual Loreward may be subject to nominations by the active membership, but this is subject to a final ruling by the Grand Master of the Order. Another exception is that the Annual Loreward is the only loreward that can be given to a Previous Member regardless of their current standing in the community.

Every year will have a loreward awarded, regardless of the level of activity.

Appealing a Ruling

In the event a member feels a grievance has been committed they are entitled to address the Grand Master of the Order in public to ensure a fair resolution has been made. If they choose to do so, the burden of evidence is on the petitioning member to prove the error, not the current and acting officers of the Order.
