News & articles about play-by-post games, for roleplayers & writers


This award isn’t really for me, it’s for everyone at OngoingWorlds & who’s contributed to the blog

So yeah. I’ve been awarded a simming prize (see the annoucement here which was sent to me by “the committee” to publish on the blog).

It’s fantastic to be awarded this, and I feel very honoured! I’m also in great company, the other 4 awardees are also doing great work in the roleplay community. It’s great to see Vault 713 win too, as they’re a Harry Potter community, and if you look back at the history of the Simming prize it’s been given to Star Trek clubs more often than not. It’s nice to see non-Trek games (of which there are many!) mentioned.

To win the Simming Prize, I had to be nominated. Thank very much to whomever nominated me. But this award isn’t really for me, it’s for everyone on OngoingWorlds who puts effort into their games and keeps them thriving. Also it’s especially for those who’ve contributed blog articles throughout last year. You know who you are. Be proud 🙂

And thanks for your continuing effort. We need articles written for the blog all the time (there’s some ideas here), if you can write something to help other roleplayers that’d be fantastic and maybe we’ll win again next year.

  • Have the rest of the winners been announced?

  • Nevermind — I forgot that the naming is a year behind, so these are the 2013 awards.

    • I think it’s so confusing naming it 2013. Maybe if they were announcing it in January it’d be ok, but we’re now actually closer to 2015!!

        Any idea what took so long for these? I don’t seem to remember them having a year lag when we got awarded some of these.

          We had some issues with transferring the awards to a new group who had never before been part of the process from our previous system. The 2013 Awards thus were delayed and when we got our nomination thread we had many candidates for consideration and we felt it necessary to do a thorough review of all of our candidates.

          The 2014 Award nominations should be open towards the end of the year with the prizes being delivered in early 2015. With that we should be back on our normal schedule for the 2015 prizes and so forth.
