Primary reason

TuQ. My dude. My hatted friend. Where do I even begin with you? You are truly one of the greatest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Your passion, hard work, dedication, amiability, and support for both myself and the rest of Plagueis are all deeply appreciated and loved. And now, as you end your three consecutive years in leadership, you know what? I think it’s time you got promoted.

Since his last recognition a year ago, TuQ’uan has served as my Proconsul and assisted with 28 competitions for Clan Plagueis, organizing 22 of them and coorganizing six of them. He has participated in 101 competitions himself and collected the following shinies: three Gold Novae, a Silver Nova, three Crescents with Ruby Stars, six Crescents with Amethyst Stars, five Crescents with Sapphire Stars, eight Crescents with Emerald Stars, four Crescents with Topaz Stars, thirteen Clusters of Fire, 31 Clusters of Ice, 16 Clusters of Earth, 22 Clusters of Graphite, and 16 Seals of Discord. He completed all nine bins in the latest Great Jedi War and was constantly on Telegram during the vendetta, checking in with members and ensuring that they felt supported and not-so-stressed about the event, as well as also earning a Gold Nova for his contributions to the clan-wide run-on.

But more so than his participation in competitions, I want to focus on TuQ’uan’s leadership itself. As my second, he has gone through a slew of clan changes and events. He co-wrote the proposal with me to close Karness Muur and Ajunta Pall and open our newest house, Tyranus. He ran multiple clan-level competitions with me, including a feud against Clan Vizsla in which he was an organizer and judge. He served as Magistrate to the Voice (more from Idris on that later). And through it all, he maintained his positive, Canadian-appropriate demeanor and spirit. It has not been easy for him to do that, given how stressful his real life has been.

For a year, he has proven to me that he’s been the best Proconsul I have ever worked with. When I wanted to bounce off an idea, hold a meeting, or just vent about things, TuQ was always around for a chat in PMs or for a Google Hangout. Not only did he help the clan in terms of productivity, but he also helped in terms of the community’s mental state and mood. A leader, after all, doesn’t just get you to work - they get you to think, relax, and have fun. They boost your morale, and they make you happy to be a part of the unit. That’s what TuQ’uan has done, and he’s damn good at it.

TuQ, I know you will continue to be an active di Plagia (our newest) after stepping down as Proconsul, though I will miss having you in the position. I am honored to recommend you for a promotion to EQ3. You have earned it triplefold now. Thank you for everything.

Additional reasons

TuQ, The Great Hat One, was an instrumental part of ‘Team Voice’ well before I stepped into the office. While I cannot speak to his time on the staff prior to October, I can tell you the six months he spent helping me as I transitioned into the role of Voice was a massive help. I am truly and absolutely grateful that TuQ was part of the current team when I arrived.

TuQ was responsible for helping clear the character sheet queue in a timely manner, helping approve some 31 sheets in the six month period I worked with him. These approvals do not include the numerous remands he had to issue in this time, ones he handled with incredible professionalism. His remands were always thoughtful and full of aid to the receiving members in making their characters sheets the best they could be. This also does not take into consideration the fact that TuQ was involved in remands and approvals that did not involve him hitting the button on the site. All questionable sheets for review are discussed in the Voice telegram channel, and TuQ was more often than not involved in those discussions. I found his insight particularly helpful as I got into the groove of processing sheets myself.

Beyond the tedious work of the sheet queue, TuQ spent those 6 months providing feedback and proofing on all of the Voice policy/project updates. These include cleaning up the Lightsaber Forms/Features, Updates to the Selectable Species List, Cleaning up Force Powers post-TRoS, Tweaking CS Skill language, and more.

Basically TuQ is awesome and his time working on the ‘Team Voice’ is/was a massive boon for the club as a whole. He has my whole-hearted support.

Congrats TuQ and well deserved!
