Totally Worth It
Here in KSI we feature a wide variety of awards for a great many achievements within the community. For those of you unsure what a forums award is, think of them like an Xbox achievement. You complete a task and get a reward on your forums profile.
In this article I will list a few awards that are easy to get, as well as a few tougher ones that have a certain notoriety about them that are definitely worth striving for. Whether a beginner or a pro awards collector, the AAP Department will have something for you to strive for. Gotta catch em all!
Goals are important. For work, family, and even fun. I personally love the forums awards and use them to try and become more proficient in my roll here in KSI to better help those around me. For example, I set my goal to achieve the “Pro Recruiter” award and with that as my motivator I was able to bring in 60 new members into this community.
As JFK once said, “It’s not what the award can do for you, It’s what you can do for the KSI community.” Okay, I made that up, but the principal remains true. Utilizing these awards as goals to better serve the community we all love, is rewarding in and of itself. Lets look at some potential goals/awards for the novice forums members to the more experienced.
Beginner Tier awards: These are some of the awards that do not require a multitude of witnesses, and that are usually on the simpler end of the spectrum to obtain for newer members.
o Helping Hand: Member who has essentially helped someone out in KSI financially somehow. Whether that means you provided a code for someone to change their name or bought a game for a fellow member.
o Member Assistance: Someone who has helped 3 or more members with general KSI questions.
o Gamerscore Hoarder/Master/Collector: These awards just require an amount of Gamerscore on your profile, the only catch is you must have a KSI gamertag. The awards are for 20k, 50k, and 100k gamerscore.
o Ice Breaker: If you have nominated five different people for awards, and they have all been awarded, then you qualify for this award. There are also higher tiers to this award.
o Mentor: Requires 5 witnesses who can attest a member has mentored them, witnesses should go into detail about how the person is their mentor.
o Trainer: For an officer that has trained 30 or more people, requires a Co-Founder or higher as a witness.
o Forum Newb: 100 Forum Posts
