There is an issue with favoritism in regards to publicity with the awarding of this.

Without a standard model, there is nothing users can strive towards other than vague preconceptions and becoming friends with the right people.

I care about the community, especially you, based Ferret, and I've gotta point out, your original post is fraught with comma splices. Do I get knighthood now?

There is no standard model for moderation either, yet people know that is not a popularity contest.  Make no mistake, it's not.  This Ferret hasn't nominated any user yet for Knighthood, not that I'm unhappy with the current choices.

Stay tuned for more tomorrow.

I'm pitching in here... =)

There is an issue with favoritism in regards to publicity with the awarding of this.

Favoritism has nothing to do with this... Knighthood is a recognition-by-status type of awarding. I have older users in my friends list, but I won't be suggesting them for Knighthood. They did nothing special for the website, haven't been active for quite a while, or stood out from the crowd. If favoritism were to be in play here, I would have made sure my friends would have been Knighted first, right? ;)

Without a standard model, there is nothing users can strive towards other than vague preconceptions and becoming friends with the right people.

We don't have to reveil the process of nomination here... knowing all the facts about the process would render the outcome of it utterly useless. And becoming friends with the right people is simply out of the question... I explained 'why' in my first answer already. =)

I think it's a great thing that some users who have helped the communtiy outstandingly get some recognition in the form of Knighthood, got some great features so congrats to SSTG, UnleashedUponMankind and any others who were rewarded this rank :)

-They have access to a Knight-only Forum.

A Knight-only forum? Is this some hidden forum, because I can't find it.

I saw this whole knight thing about a week ago on some old inactive users. I assumed that this was some really old thing that is no longer used. It looks like I completely missed the mark on that guess.
