Primary reason

The best thing I can say about Tali is that he astounds me. It's rare that we get a member with Tali's level of determination, passion and talent. He has a keen wit and intelligence that he brings to bear on every situation he encounters, and he's always ready to offer helpful advice and solutions to problems. He's quick to offer to lend a hand with projects, wiki updates, or character development. In short, he's a joy to have as a member.

His personal activity is unparalleled.Since his last promotion in July, he has participated in 60 competitions and co-organized 3. That works out to almost nine competitions per month, for which he has earned 4 Ruby Crescents, 6 Amethyst Crescents, 4 Sapphire Crescents, an Emerald Crescent and 2 Topaz Crescents. At over 55,000 words, he's written more fiction in that time than many Brotherhood members do in their entire career, earning a Dark Cross along the way.

Maybe most astounding, though, was his participation in the recent Great Jedi War. Not only did he participate in every single Bin (earning 21 Seals of Wrath), he earned a Gold Nova in the process. Few members of the Brotherhood ever earn a Gold Nova. Something tells me this won't be Tali's last.

For your enviable work effort, your consistent drive to excel, and the untempered passion you bring to the Brotherhood, it is my privilege to recommend you be elevated to rank of Savant. Congratulations, Tali!

Additional reasons

The Lek-master continues to amaze! Since his promotion to EQ1, he has participated in 55 competitions, and co-organized 3 of them. He is a prolific writer, having written over 55,000 words of fiction. Yes, you read that correct; he has written over a novel’s worth of fiction.

In addition to his writing and his competition activity, Tali has dedicated himself to improving the DB. He has submitted a number of proposals, including one for the recently implemented Kaminoan species, and a proposal to reform Arconan possessions. He is also a constant, friendly presence on Telegram, providing support and guidance for new members, as well the occasional piece of constructive criticism.

For all of Tali’s activity and his general DB-related awesomeness, I am happy to recommend that Tali be promoted to EQ2. Congratulations, Tali! You are ever a bright light within Arcona, and I adore every opportunity I get to interact with you!

Holy purple-moly! Tali Sroka is a man of action! His is a name that consistently appears on many a fiction competitions and more, quickly growing to join the ranks of the prolific writers in our community. He spreads his love for writing with those around him, often encouraging and attempting to rope in his fellow Voidbreakers and Arconans into collaborating on fictions just for funzies. And he aids them in their own character development and the building of character relations. It seems to be something he greatly enjoys doing, with discussions filled to the brim with enthusiasm. Tali is a bright and welcoming figure in many of our social communities, known by a wider audience than just his Clan, and his helpful tendencies reach far and wide.

Tali is immensely creative, having helped developed both Selen, our home planet in Dajorra, and Voidbreaker through their respective development competition events. This creativity, along with his drive to improve the DJB for his fellow peers and himself, has led to him sending several proposals. Tali's proposal for the Kaminoan species was accepted and now has become one of the selectable races for members. Other proposals included feat suggestions and rebalancing, armor implications, and more.

This Twi’lek is a stubborn man, set to what he believes and thinks. And you know what? We need that. We need that determination and tenacity to push for change and addition in this club, to stir up what otherwise may lay stagnant. I am glad to see this in Tali, it reminds me there’s always more we can do and improve. So, keep at it, Tali. Your insight is greatly appreciated, as well as your plethora of new ideas, and it may one day spread to a new wave of equally invested members.

I am excited to recommend Tali Sroka for promotion to Equite II! Congratulations, Tail-lek! I look forward to working more with you and seeing where the stars take you.
