Primary reason

It's my honor to write this recommendation for Bentre Kairn'tel Stahoes' promotion. He has been an extremely valuable member of Naga Sadow to have around and is involved on a number of fronts. From writing to gaming, from Summit leadership to his wiki involvement, Bentre has his fingers in just about everything, and generally leaves a good mark. In the time since his last promotion, he has served as Aedile of Shar Dakhan for seven months, been a Shadow Academy Professor for eight months, a Wiki Staff member for nine months, and is currently the Naga Sadow Rollmaster, a position he has held for two months.

I will tackle Bentre's general activity first. There is a lot of it. Bentre has organized 28 competitions, but participated in a total of 207 competitions since his last promotion, which is a pretty incredible feat in itself. That's 23 competitions a month if spread out evenly. He has also played 122 pvp game matches as well as 152 pve activites, and written 10393 words of fiction. In total, Bentre has collected 58 Crescents, including 19 Ruby, 18 Amethyst, 18 Sapphire, and 3 Emerald. He has also earned 8 Pendants of Blood, and collected 1640 clusters: 847 Fire, 32 Ice, 754 Earth, and 7 Graphite. Finally, Bentre has also obtained 1 Dark Side Scroll, 3 Scrolls of Foundation, a Scroll of the Master, and a Legion of the Scholar. Only One LoS? Really Bentre?! Wow.

Now I'll talk about his leadership. Bentre has been a member of the Naga Sadow Summit in some capacity for the entire time since his last promotion, with 7 months as Aedile and 2 as Rollmaster. At the same time, he's been a Professor and Wiki Staff member. I don't know how this guy does it. He's also the kind of leader we like because he does the stuff we don't want to do. Except, he doesn't just do it, he takes the initiative to do it. Chief among this is wiki work. Bentre does a lot of behind the scenes stuff. He has updated or created numerous wiki pages for the Clan, including updating the Black Guard wiki page, the CNS Master-Student Program wiki page, as well as several House wiki pages. He even took it among himself to keep pages for CNS events updated and fleshed out, such as Operations Cobalt and Firestorm's wiki pages. In addition to all this, Bentre maintains steady reports, runs a healthy amount of competitions (28 total since his last promotion), and is generally present and available for his members needs. He helped Darkblade run the event Operation: Homeland, and provided important lore details (including graphics) for the "Leadership for Kel Rasha" event.

Bentre's successes are further qualified by the three merit awards he has been awarded since his previous promotion. These include two Steel Crosses and a Grand Cross. Key among the details mentioned in the Grand Cross were Bentre's continued wiki efforts and that he managed to achieve 100% participation in our feud with CSP, being one of only five members to do so. His other awards showcase his continued, steady work as Aedile of Shar Dakhan, a position he excelled in.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Bentre for promotion to Equite 3. He has set the bar - no - smashed it in competition involvement, all while continuing to be an impactful leader in the Clan and a valuable staff member for two different important areas of the Brotherhood. He is very responsive to communication, he is there for his members, and he is there for the Clan and Brotherhood.

Congratulates, Bentre!

Additional reasons

As my peers show, Bentre is more than worthy of promotion to the rank of Battlelord. His intense level of activity combined with his service on the Wiki staff and a Professor in the Shadow Academy has allowed him to serve others in the club. My voice here is surplus to requirements, as others have so eloquently put WHY Bentre deserves his promotion.

Congratulations, Benny. Continue making me proud.

I had the pleasure of having Bentre as my Aedile for a better portion of 2016. During this time he has been an amazing help. Not only did we patch up our House wiki pages, but we provided a clear format for future pages or edits that would help others who would take over once we were no longer in the position. We worked on two House events which turned out to be very successful and further enriched our House lore, adding new and exciting options for future events.

Bentre was a valuable addition to not only the House summit but also the Clan summit, and he continues to prove his value as the Clans Rollmaster!

Bentre currently serves as the Professor of the Lore Studies Department for us in the Shadow Academy. This was one of the hardest-hit areas of our audit due to so much of the previous information in the courses becoming non-canon, so Bentre's diligence to get his courses updated according to our specifications was a tremendous help in achieving our overall success.

Beyond the important task of keeping his courses updated, Bentre has graded an astounding 82 courses in the past nine months with an average grading time of only 3 hours. Are maximum allowable time is 24 hours and we urge our Professors to try and get them within 12; 3 hours, as it can be guessed, is incredible. It's for these two reasons I'm happy to add my voice in recommending Bentre for this promotion. Congrats!

In the last nine months since his promotion, Bentre Kairn'tel Stahoes has been an invaluable part of my DJB Wiki staff. He has been my go-to-guy for any project work that has come up while also acquitting himself very well in the more mundane, ongoing patrols of recent edits on the wiki. Article patrolling is the most overlooked and seemingly unimportant part of the what the staff does, while it is one of the most important jobs on the wiki. Making the minor fixes to things like categorization when a new page is created is the only way that entropy can be staved off on the wiki. Without patrols, the wiki would quickly devolve into a mass of unconnected, uncategorized chaos. Bentre, more than any other member of my staff, has patrolled these edits and made those minor updates.

On the larger front, Bentre has also been a stand out when it comes to quickly and efficiently turning around project work for me as well. He helped with competition creation for the DJB Wiki competition The Undertaking, the first DJB Wiki-run competition in many years. Additionally, he did the lion's share of the article edits required for the revamp of the Clan category structure that I implemented this year. On that project alone he executed 370 page edits to build the new category structure for Clans Arcona, Scholae Palatinae, Tarentum, Taldryan, and his home unit Naga Sadow. He has also always been there to provide his input and perspective when I need the counsel of my staff on new policies. In total, Bentre has made in excess of 550 article edits since his elevation, and the DJB Wiki is a better, more orderly place for his contributions.

As such, it gives me great pleasure to offer my recommendation as Wiki Tribune for his promotion to Equite 3. Keep up the great work, Bentre!
