The rewards for being here arent in an icon or an superfluous title.. but in the wisdom and sharing of experiences, of those that ask interesting questions and give us time and room to think of our own opinions.
I dont think people should be formally 'rewarded/awarded' for it. Especially when for me, druidry is all about humility and awareness of the self... not about the titles and someone deeming you 'worthy'.
And, such things will bring about ego and personality competitions - which would ruin the haven that this is place is for people.
Just my personal thoughts.

Perhaps this would teach certain people that it is not the quantity of posts they make, or the number of one liners that constitute a good post. Nor making racist or upsetting remarks just to cause shock among the readers and thus attract peoples anger and dismay which keeps their thread on the first page for days on end. That type of post is not suitable for our OBOD Board.
But on the other hand, we might just discover that the most active board members are the ones that enjoy the one liners and close cutting humour etc. Oh well :shrug:

If a post is racist, etc, delete it. That's completely different.

How is that different from Eisteddfod Competitions? The only difference I see is that all participants get something for participating.
