.Katniss has been improving so much lately! She rose up through the ranks one at a time and even though she has improved a lot, she's always pushing herself to do something different. Very great work, Mary, and we can't wait to see what you'll do in the future. (: <3
magissa has been here for only a few months and look at her post count! She's active all over the forum and has galleries in two different sections: Coding and graphics. Even though coding is her higher ranking, she's always making graphics too and is just such a joy to see around the forum. (: <3
Even though Ash is one of our newer Moderators, she's always shown such great initiative in helping out with many different things. She has been a great addition to our staff, though I have to say, it's always hard to just choose one person! <3 Very great job, though, Ash. (: Thank you for all the hard work you put into Shadowplay and especially the challenges forums. (: <3
Evey, or otherwise known as HellsBitchEve, has improved so much lately! She's always updating with new graphics and trying to really better her graphics abilities. Well, it shows and is definitely paying off. (: Great work, Eve! <3
effluenscence, otherwise known as Energie, has been improving so much lately! But it's not just the improvement, but the potential that they're showing in all of their graphics too. (: Not just in one type, but all of the types. (: Keep up the great work, it's really showing off. (: <3
Christina may have just returned to us, but her muse came back full force! She's entering in many challenges and participating all over the forum. I'm glad that she's back with us and definitely has a lot of enthusiasm for challenges and graphics. Welcome back, Christina! <3OF THE MONTH GRAPHICSawards by Ghislaine

Ghislaine switched from being a Critique Moderator to being an Awards Team member. Evernight changed from being a Challenge Moderator to being an Awards Team member as well.
