Primary reason

Since his last recognition almost four years ago, Gavriel, or Arion, has continued to improve and extend the Dark Brotherhood's Website by contributing to its codebase. Along with several minor fixes and tweaks, Gavriel has implemented numerous bigger features, each of which increases the performance of the site, or makes it easier to operate. He is always eager to look for areas to improve the site, which are becoming increasingly difficult to find as the website is becoming more and more mature.

Gavriel has single-handedly refactored the way the news page code works, such that rendering of the page now takes place at the client, which ensures a more responsive page or users, all while causing less strain on the server. He has implemented a feature that will weekly traverse all saved Shadow Academy exam attempts, and expires those that have not been touched for over six months. This prevents problems that would previously occur when SA staff would change the questions on the exams for older courses, rendering saved exams that depended on these questions in an inconsistent state. Gavriel has also completely overhauled the selectors used to select dossier items (weapons, robes, accessories) by turning them from a drop-down based system into more of a gallery-like page, which allows people to see all options available to them at one glance, rather than having to select each option individually, and has also contributed some smaller, yet very welcome, improvements, such as the ability to automatically pull participants into a parent competition based on activities in child competitions, and the ability to toggle visibility on personal NPCs, allowing people to hide characters they no longer use.

For these reasons, combined with the contributions to his Clan, Odan-Urr, which I'm sure his Consul will be happy to describe, I am pleased to recommend Gavriel Kadesh an Amethyst Kukri.

In addition to the above recommendation, it is my pleasure to note all the wonderful things Gavriel has done for Odan-Urr. Since his last recognition, he has participated in 19 competitions, 1 PvP match, 23 PvE matches, 1 SA course and 2 news comments. In addition, he participated in 4/12 GJW bins, focusing his talents to place in ¾ of them. He placed 1st in the Phase II Sudooku, 2nd in the Phase I Sudooku, and 7th place in the Phase I Gaming. For his efforts, he was given 1 Gold Nova, 1 Silver Nova, 1 Crescent with Diamond Star, 1 Crescent with Ruby Star, 3 Crescents with Amethyst Star, 10 Clusters of Fire, 115 Clusters of Earth, 1 Seal of Loyalty, and 6 Seals of Discord. Thank you so much and congratulations! We’re all proud of you.
