You DMM.png

You are the Micronationalist of the Month for November.

Why you were awarded

"You may think you have little value in the community, but everyone plays their part. Whether you fixed a small spelling mistake on the wiki, undid vandalism, helped clean up an article, or just gave someone feedback. Or just chatted on MicroWiki@Discord for 14 hours, was nice to somebody; welcomed them in the community, made someone's day, helped make someone a coat of arms or flag, partook in a survey, joined community discussions, helped keep the community safe, helped develop a micronation, or made micronational culture or media. Or if you just did nothing. Literally nothing. I am sure at least one person got something out of it. You are an important and valued member of the MicroWiki community. Never forget that."

Unofficial MW discord administration logo

MicroWiki@Discord Administers are the team of people in charge of administrating the MicroWiki discord server. The administration team currently consists of Emperor Jonathan I, King Shamus I, Karl Friedrich, Thomas Merrell, Eryn Lewis, Aaron Green, Andrew Creed, Newton von Uberquie and Emperor Adam I.

Why it was awarded

"The administration team has to put up with a lot of trouble, such as trolls, hate and a bunch of rude people in general. They ensure that the Discord stays a fun and safe place for everyone.

And people clearly appreciate it, since MicroWiki@Discord Administers won the public poll with an impressive 5 out of 5 votes, beating John I of Baustralia and Violette Clingersmith (also known as Suzuki) who both had none.

The administration team has gone through a lot, especially with frequent hate about their race, personal beliefs and people questioning their leadership and administration skills. However without them the Discord would without a doubt turn into chaos."
