As one of the most consistent and prolific writers in the fleet, Mark has sustained a massively productive streak since the spring, earning 27 writing awards in roughly equal numbers across both posts and fiction since his last promotion in September. He is an integral component of every game he is on and had always been one of the most engaged users on our forums. On top of this, Mark has been a stellar Task Force staff member, maintaining the rolls in Task Force 72 and serving as a friendly and welcoming presence on Discord with his regular “Liberty Calls.” It is not easy to be both an active member and a staff member, but Mark manages to be one of our most active members while also going above and beyond in his Task Force, as he mentors game managers, creates canon, and helps people engaged. For going above and beyond as both a member and as a staffer, I nominate Mark for the Silver Palm.
