Yes each level from or at least beginner an above.
I think it would be somewhat tough to do this at least outside of intermediate and advanced because user levels change too often. If we did it annually more likely than not it would only be relevant for an advanced user. And at that point it wouldn't be much different than member of the year. I'll think about this and see if it's feasible in any modified way.

Ok well, now that I understand it better, then if you guys want to do it, and maybe enjoy it, then its all good. My suggestion would be to keep it to maybe 5-7 max. Not sure of the frequency, maybe monthly and annual, but here are some suggestions; biggest contributor (by volume) most valuable contributior that helps all, best vendor (not sure how to define that) best new rookie, best suggestions to help/improve RDF, best video,
Biggest contributer by volume WOULD cause padding to be more of an issue than it is now unless it was done by word count or similar, but even that would open up the potential for abuse. Awards shouldn't have any potential for abuse - especially since as you suggested there are going to be only a small amount of them available.

Ideally we want to be able to give out awards without people purposely trying to earn one. That's why things like member of the year are good. Like the above I'll make a note about what you suggested and see what we can come up with.

I like the idea of creating “awards” or other ways to tag/recognize people for things they have done to better our community, namely testers. The current system of people just saying they’re a tester in their bio seems a little dated. A tester “award” could also be like a verification.

I don't have any great ideas for awards.

But let's keep the number of awards to a minimum so they are actually awarded. I don't believe we've even named a member of the year since 2016, and that's the only award we've had to award. Also, having too many awards dilutes the value of an award. Let's keep it somewhat exclusive so it means something.

Just my two cents.
