Awards Criteria

Awards > Awards Criteria

Here is an outline of the criteria for each trophy. You can't just simply ask for one!

Unless otherwise noted, members may only be awarded each respective trophy once. This excludes competition trophies.

Tutorial Award

tutorial trophy

Anyone who writes a tutorial for TWHL which is accepted and published will become the proud owner of a Tutorial Award to reward them for their efforts. Our tutorials continue to be hugely popular, receiving hundreds of hits per day, so members who contribute here are most worthy of recognition.

Forum Award

forum trophy

The Forum Award is given to members who have provided an outstanding level of assistance to other members regarding their mapping problems, and who have also shown themselves to be responsible and sensible in the forums whenever appropriate.

Map Vault Award

mapvault trophy

The Map Vault Award is bestowed upon members whose dedicated and good reviewing of maps in the 'Vault has assisted other members, who have helped other members with their Problem Maps, or who have submitted maps of a consistently excellent standard.

Map of the Month Award

motm trophy

To be awarded with the Motm award is to signify that the member has created at least one map of high enough quality to be voted as Map of the Month.

Although members can win Motm more than once, they will only recieve one award.

Special Contribution Award

special contribution trophy

This is only awarded to members whose huge contributions of effort have established special resources such as the Entity Guides or Glossary, or have contributed an appreciable quantity of good tutorials. It is rarely given.
