So let's mix up how we've done OTM and do it this way. We've discussed this, but there'll likely be more than a few tweaks in the coming month as we decide on a format. For the moment, we're going to do it this way.
In order for this to not be quite so spam filled as it has the potential to be, I'm going to ask that people limit the number they recognize of Player, Character, and Thread to about 2-3 per month per category. It'll be open for a week at the start of every month, after which it'll close. This is far more open-ended than before, so there isn't really any particular criteria.

Recognising both Roy and Jian for Staff/Player of the Month.
Seriously? I'm incredibly confident in their ability. Roy was hired in a busy period, and even during my absence the two of them held up the pace without breaking a sweat. They deserve some serious credit and thanks <3
Shout out to Value and my girl Kireon for agreeing on continuing our threads that we left off december last year (that's a long time, man!) I really, really appreciate the shit out of it, especially you Kira who always helps me to find back to my character, with whom I can share ideas and concepts with and without your help I would be stuck on so many things, you're the real MVP in my life as a roleplayer ♥
And of course Shun Minamoto who is literally everything, you know exactly what I mean, personally and when it comes to site-related things I never, ever want to be without you again (god, that sounds so fucking cheesy but it has to be said, haha). You always let me milk you for ideas and help regarding masteries and other important shit and I am seriously happy to have you!
Lastly, thanks to everyone who has threads with me and offered me threads ever since I've returned, I've been able to pick up where I left off and can now continue to roleplay Seryu! And that, really, is the best thing ever to me.
(am I doing this 'recognizing' thing right? XD)
charming lies & betrayal always winning never wrong puppet master twists your words no empathy delusional
Staff: Shoutout to Value for changing the OTM. And Consequence for changing the request format! (I have a feeling Shun was a little bit behind both movements too...but he's not staff so...)
Player: Shoutout to Shun Minamoto for all his help on my Prestige Request. And Consequence and Kireon for helping me understand what makes a successful prestige-worthy character in the first place and focusing my efforts on defining who and what Kionchi is.
Kitten: Big thanks to Cheshire for always believing in me. Big shoutout to Progress for the successful plot. Huge shoutout to @octavia for making a hollow that makes me excited to RP with hollows again.
Character: The balls on Cazador going for King is downright inspiring.

Staff: Shoutout to Jian Oreachi. This was harder for me because both Tokiyo and Salmon have helped me out tremendously, but Jian has gone above and beyond that countless time. When I joined he helped me understand some weaknesses in my writing that I was aware of, but didn't know how to properly address. He assisted me (alongside Salmon and Tokiyo) on fixing Ginjo's power so I wasn't stuck with something generic that I felt I didn't like.
Since joining he offered to thread with me, has helped me with countless little dumb questions when others didn't feel like assisting or didn't have the time, and has overall been a solid guide and help throughout adjusting to the new system; and trying to make my (way to fickle and random) idea's work in the system. Over all he's been a fantastic help and one of the main reasons I decided to stay here.
Player: Freyleif Jökulsdóttir. She being the one to introduce me to this place, she's put up with my fickle attitude, helped me work out idea's and concepts for multiple character concepts, assisted in the direction of where I want characters to end up, and more. She's helped me out as best she can when Jian or other staff weren't available, and helped me understand the Quincy Lore and changes here using terms I can understand. That and her usual friendliness and constant offer to RP, thread, and help others in general as well as the motions she's taken to trying and help the Quincy Faction as a whole.
Character: Not sure yet sadly. I may edit one in if I find someone that super sticks out for me within a manageable timeframe of this post.
Other: Progress. Though I personally have no interest in the plot, it doesn't mean I can't respect what he's done. The sheer magnitude of the plot says enough all on its own- 80% of the entire site is involved and that speaks volumes. Though I have no interest at the moment, it went a long way toward impressing me and making me want to stay if player-driven plots could become such a large thing here.
As well, Emily White and Consequence for the assistance since joining the place as I stated briefly above; but if they hadn't been there to work with me I would have likely given up on the board. I came in with a relatively negative mindset (as boards that had severely limiting rules that refused to work with players is what I've grown used to over the years) it was uncalled for, and a jaded attitude the place didn't deserve.
Toki and Sal were both patient with me and helped me understand the system and properly expand it into a power that would work, as well as helping ensure the character's core idea's were not lost- even expanding a bit into area's I hadn't intended but was happy to find either way.
Also literally everyone that's threaded with me. No one has immensely stood out just yet (besides Ai but she doesn't count, we both already know we can post the way we do), but I've enjoyed the posts with everyone quite a bit and it's been a warm welcome, refreshing and enjoyable for once.
