On August 22, 2015, the Geek Citizenship Recognition initiative was launched. It was the last major initiative I ran and it's the only one I still handle today. Over the past 2 years, we have gifted more than 7000 stars to Geeks of every walk of life.

The Star Program is a way for people to recognize fellow geeks for their contribution to the site. We think of these stars as a kind of Uber Thumb for folks you really enjoy here on the site for any reason. Please join us in recognizing RPG, BGG, and VGG members whose participation you value. This is an anonymous award to show appreciation for the many fantastic geeks out there. And remember, no telling who you nominated, especially not the receiver.


The recognition levels are:

mb - Level I - One small step for geek... One giant leap for geek-kind!
mb - Level II - If I have seen further, it's only by standing on the apex of other's dice.
mb - Level III - Are we geeks because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are geeks?
mb - Level IV - The journey of a thousand crits begins with a single roll...
mb - Level V - My God! It's Full of Stars!

The very simple and clear rules of gifting appear on our master thread here:
Geek Citizenship Recognition

To celebrate the 2 year anniversary of this program, we have a special free microbadge that you can get just by asking below on this thread (I'm going to gift it to everyone that participated in the master thread above).

The special gift micro:

mb - The Geek Citizenship Recognition Program Rolls On!

(we are going to tweak this slightly to be the same size as the main stars - it will automatically update when we have that ready)

Oh, and Happy 8th Birthday RPG Geek!!

PS: I know not everyone likes these sorts of initiatives - I would appreciate polite criticism in private correspondence only and if you would rather not be the recipient of a star, please let me know via geekmail and I'll put you on the filter list)

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo. "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

Sauron was not of mortal flesh, he could never again appear fair to the eyes of Men, yet his spirit arose & returned to Mordor. There he dwelt, dark & silent, until he wrought a new guise, an image of malice & hatred made visible; the Eye of Sauron.

One moment only it stared out as from some great window immeasurably high there stabbed a flame of red, the flicker of a piercing Eye. The Eye was not turned on them, it gazed north but Frodo at that dreadful glimpse fell as one stricken mortally.

What a fantastic micro-badge. I'd love one.

Also, Happy Anniversary to RPG Geek and a thank you for everyone that has kept it going.
