Fix Honours
« on: October 17, 2013, 07:11:50 pm »
Honours.  Not something that particularly interests me but surely if we're going to have them, they should be correct.

I suggest someone who gives a shit about it is put in charge of it so that they can be sorted out.

It says that I am an MP and I haven't been in congress for months.  It says that Wookie is CP.  No doubt there are many more incorrect ones.  Clearly they haven't been updated.

Ta.

Why not just ditch the honours system. No need to find a mug someone responsible to do it every few months

Doesn't matter to me.  There are 3 options as I see it.

1) Have someone looking after it to ensure they are up to date
2) Delete any non-permanent honours
3) Scrap the lot

I don't care how they do it.  It just bothers me if we have them and they are wrong.

Worst of all it says I'm an MBE, ignoring the OBE I was awarded after successfully rigging and corrupting the Honours Committee.

I'll do party badges if people are desperate for them and go to the effort of designing them. I have no graphic skills...

Just do it Dan.

All those little things that niggle you and that no one else seems to give a flower about or even notice could all be sorted, nice and easily.

In Real life if a person that already has an OBE is awarded an MBE then they're an MBE not a MBE, OBE. Its a higher rank of the same award so you only use the one rank. In a similar fashion an Officer is a Captain not a Captain Lieutenant

I don't really see what that has to do with my post. On erep we generally did it that MBE was for peeps that deserve recognition, and then the further you went up the ladder (OBE, CBE, KBE etc.) the harder it was to get one and more reserved it was. When awarded, it usually went: MBE > OBE > CBE etc., not: CBE > MBE > OBE.

In fact, I don't think anyone was ever awarded an honour that was 'lower' than what they already had. If you jumped straight in at OBE, you didn't get an MBE further down the line.

So then God created the world, and on the first day he created light and air and fish and jam and soup and potatoes and haircuts and arguments and small things and rabbits and people with noses and jam – more jam, perhaps – and soot and flies and tobogganing and showers and toasters and grandmothers and, uh … Belgium. And the second day he created fire and water and eggnog and radiators and lights and Burma and things that go "urh" and … and Colonel Gaddafi and Arthur Negus. On the third day he probably got lists and said, "I can't remember what I've invented now. I've just been ad-libbing so far."
