    What is the X Marks Honour Roll?

    Our system of recognizing members for their contribution to the forum is by induction to The X Marks Honour Roll. The Honour Roll is a merit based system and recognizes a tangible contribution to the forum. An induction to the Honour Roll reflects great credit on the inductee as it honours not only the contribution , but the recognition of that contribution by others.

    Induction to the X Marks Honour Roll is by peer nomination. Any member my nominate any other member within the following guidelines.

    1) A history of meritorious contribution to the forum.
    2) A history of significant help or assistance to the forum membership.
    3) A significant contribution to the general kilt wearing world.
    4) A record of service or benefit to the other members of the forum.

    a. To be eligible for nomination a member must have been an active member for at least one year prior to nomination.

    a. A member would actually be inducted to the Honour Roll only once. If the member receives multiple nominations prior to induction one citation or a combination of all the citations may be used for the basis of the induction citation. If a member is nominated but not inducted, and then nominated a second time at a later date, they may be inducted based on the citation of the second nomination.
    b. A member should not have received a permanent infraction under the forums' Disciplinary Policy. After induction, a member who receives a permanent infraction may be subject to a vote for removal.

    Previous Titles
    a. The X Marks Honour Roll is an addition to the forum. Members who have a custom or specific titles prior to 1 June 2011 will retain the title. If a member with an existing title is inducted to the Honour Roll, the original title will be included in the Honour Roll graphic.
    b. In recognition of their service to the forum, members of the forum staff prior to 1 June 2011 will be inducted to the Honour Roll. Currently serving members of the staff will not be eligible for the Honour Roll until their retirement.

    How to Nominate
    a. A member of the forum wishing to nominate another member may do so by contacting the Forum Owner, Steve Ashton, by PM.
    b. The nominator must provide the wording of the citation which will be placed on the Honour Roll. To keep the induction process as free of bias as possible the Forum Staff will not assume the responsibility for preparing the citation.

    At a minimum, nominations must include:
    1) The nominator's Screen Name and email address.
    2) The nominee's Screen Name and join date.
    3) A copy of the full citation which will be placed on the Honour Roll listing. The citation must include and cite, the specific contribution the nominee has made to either the community which is X Marks or the wider kilt wearing world.
    4) Where practical, quotes or links to specific posts that exemplify the nominee's contribution to X Marks.
    5) Where practical, links or quotes to other sites or media showing the nominee's contribution to the kilt wearing world.

    c. The Forum Owner will open a line of communication with the nominator and the nominee to verify and assist with the wording of the citation if requested.
    d. The Forum Owner, after communication with the nominator, will forward the nomination to the Forum Moderators for vote. The Forum Owner does not vote on nominations.
    e. A simple majority of affirmative votes among the Forum Moderators will induct the member to the Honour Roll.
    f. The votes of the Forum Moderators will be recorded and become part of our history.

    The Honour Roll Graphic
    Each inductee to the X Marks Honour Roll will be awarded with an Honour Roll specific graphic.

    This graphic will show on the Honour Roll List and will also appear in the inductee's public profile and on every post they make.

    The Honour Roll List
    This section of the forum will contain the X Marks Honour Roll List where it can be seen by all members.
    Each listing on the Honour Roll will include a picture of the inductee, their join date, the full citation of the service or contribution which merited the induction, and the induction date.

    The Honour Roll Announcement Forum
    Induction to the X Marks Honour Roll is the highest recognition available to our members. Each induction will be announced in this section of the forum where all our members can know about the induction and join in congratulatory messages in keeping with the honour endowed to the member upon induction
