Primary reason

Korroth, the man that is a beacon on continous activity. I don't know how he maintains it, but the man is always a reliable source of activity. Even since his last award 2 month ago, he has managed to still participate in 10 of the GJW competitions where he earned 1 Silver Novae for the 2nd place finish in the Battleplan competition. Even over the course of this time and during a GJW war he was always a very active member with his members and team. He continued to dedicate his free time towards the Clan project ran by Rollmistress Blade for the Jedi Praxeum which she has spoken in detail to below.

In addition to all this, Korroth played a huge part in the GJW for our Clan. GJW activity is typically more time consuming and harder to place in than the average competition due to the volume of submissions. For the Battleplan he was the creator of all the images for his team who earned 2nd place in the event netting 1 Silver Nova. The BP was two phases and ultimately contained 36 pages by the end that he contributed the amazing pictures to. No small task. In addition to this he also placed very high in 3 other competitions against a field of many great competitors. He placed 5th in the “Machines are stronger”, and 6th place in Both “Know thy Enemy” and the “Comic”. When we compare the level of submissions, time they took, and amount of other competitors into account it definitely raises the bar to the kind of quality Korroth is churning out.

Korroth your activity speaks for itself and this SC is the least we can do your dedication during the GJW and your service to the Clan's project. Congrats!

Additional reasons

Korroth has been a crucial addition to the Jedi Praxeum project, even though he was a late addition to the team. He was pulled onto the team to do the entire wiki code for the Jedi Praxeum wiki page, but quickly went beyond my initial expectations. First, he wiki-coded the rather lengthy document (~12 pages, 5220 words), taking extra effort to make sure it was a page worthy of being nominated for a potential Featured Article. As a result of his hard efforts, it was indeed nominated for a Featured Article shortly after. Second, he volunteered to review the content for the entire document in depth as a fresh set of eyes, something that was very much appreciated for a 12 page/5220 word document. This was crucial as I wanted to ensure all the sections worked together with each other well and there were no contradictions. No easy task! He even volunteered to give extra content feedback on the content of the Operations and Management section (807 words) during a busy time when I needed extra proofers for an in-depth review. Third, he made custom content + wiki code (totaling 189 words) on the Kiast (Planet) wiki page to reflect this new addition to the planet, tying our new wiki page to the main clan page.

Remember, I only asked him to wikify the document, but he went above and beyond that initial duty. In the process, he helped me get the Jedi Praxeum page over the finish line to make an excellent product that we were all proud of. I greatly appreciated his help. In summary, he did a great job and was a great teammate. I believe the Korroth has earned a Steel Cross.

Congratz and thank you so much!!!

Korroth is one of those members who you see consistently, but don't always see exactly what he is doing until it's done. When he is done, there is suddenly a new awesome Wiki page or Battle Plan that reinforces why he is an excellent member.

I have had the distinct honor of working on at least two Battle Plans along side Korroth, one being a First place Crescent winning one and the other the Silver Nova from the most recent Great Jedi War. In my time working with him, I have seen first hand his excellent work ethic ability to work very well in a team.

Congratulations Korroth, you definitely have earned this!
