Medals and Awards




This Page explains what Medals and Awards are, and which kinds there are. If you're looking for the people who are honored with a Medal or an Award check out the Hall of Fame

Medals and Awards are a long time project by the members of SoL. We wanted to find a way to honor those people, who are worthy to be honored. There were long discussions about how that may happen and what it shall look like. Thanks to the support from many people we're proud to present our first try to introduce these things to you.

There are 2 different kinds of honors a member of SoL can achieve: Medals on the one hand and Awards on the other. Medals are mentions for character traits and long-term based behaviour. By looking through the long list of existing Medals you will get a clue about what it is. In opposite to that Awards are given for a special achievement, it doesnt need to be trait related and achieving an award doesnt need someone to be a long time member of SoL. Any great work that is worthy of an Award may get one. That is why there is not a list for possible Awards: It is Councils work to recognize such brilliant works and propose them for an award.

This means that Awards are given out by the Council. This is because Awards are not meant to create competition or be linked to popularity. And the Council is the gremium for discussions anyway, so they fulfill this additional task. The Medals on the other hand go through a phase of nomination and in the end the members will choose who shall win the Medal. Every once in a while the Council will choose a bunch of medals and will nominate three people for each of them. Then there will be a poll for the members and their vote decides about the winner. Because some of the medals are hard to understand, which traits they aim at, what the difference to other medals is and so on, there will be a brief note for which traits the members shall care making their choice in the poll.

Because of the huge variety of positive traits and the different areas they are belonging to the following list of Medals is ordered by chapters. Some of the Medals have a further explanation to make clear what the medal is for. Just have a look and you will get along with it.
