The FISD Master Armorer program is an optional, detachment only incentive award to recognize individuals who have directly helped another 501st stormtrooper to achieve Expert Infantry status. Some peo

Another program to achieve more EPIC TK's !? oh.. well, that is EPIC!

Just reached the first marker, 5 assisted EIB now,

I would say as long as it's 50/50 it should be fine. 

50/50 or "The assistance must be for a period of 30 minutes or more." as in the OP? Just to clarify. For example, if a suit was assembled by another "Master" armorer, but the suit was then repaired, updated for accuracy, and photographed for submission by another member over the course of many hours? Should both be counted as "wins"? If not, does the original builder get credit, or the one who helped with the EIB submission? Just want to make sure that's okay and we're on the same page, otherwise I will remove one of my wins.

Exactly! I want to clarify before I take wins away from some by accident.

The intent of the award was to incentive and recognize those who help other people go EI. It need not be a full set of armor by yourself.  I would say anyone spending 30 or more minutes counts as a "win" if that person goes EI and says they helped and put in > 30 minutes towards the project.  If 30 minutes seems too low, 1 hour can be the bottom mark.   So, the OP would read:

 

1 hour or more on a single EI awardee, regardless of how many other people helped.

I hate to stir up trouble, wait no I love to stir up trouble... But I'd encourage a revisitation of this program, especially in a COVID-era world where "in-person" mentorship has become a safety concern for many of us. I'd love to see more deserving people wearing this badge for their efforts in assisting others, and perhaps the number of wins can be adjusted if it gets out of hand.

Of course I'd love another little badge myself, but in general, I think it's important to recognize those who go above and beyond in assisting troopers on an individual basis with their armor for an extended period of time, and it's a brave new world for many of us with the global pandemic.

 

Anyone else have thoughts on the "in-person" requirement for this award? I see folks thanked and recognized for their assistance on threads regularly, but not many of these badges...

Interesting point, Justin.  I like to think I've helped one or two folks here on the FISD on occasion, but this was designed for a hands-on approach.  Until we get into a safe zone this will probably not be awarded until we are post-pandemic sad to say.

Though I like the idea if virtually helping people build their armor was credited some of us here would be in the upper 100s if not 1000s :laugh1:

Indeed.

I think we just leave the program to the side line until things get closer normal. It is very much a hands on award scheme.

Great to see you thinking outside the box though Justin :duim:

No worries, and I appreciate even the consideration. I was just getting a little down on the shape of things yesterday as my state began shutting back down due to rising Covid numbers, and unfortunately, I don't know when things will be safe to mentor in person again, so I figured it would be worth asking if a change could be considered. We would obviously still need a clear differentiation between casual forum posting and the folks who go out of their way to answer specific questions and mentor outside the forums as well, but I would encourage the team to keep this in mind and on the backburner as we continue to see how the pandemic plays out.

And not to forget the intent of the award as Paul posted previously, it is only for those you have helped to reach EI, if it was just to help anyone to basic BOY I'd have a few ;)

Correct.  Even at 1000 EI we are far short of our target with is closer to 2400 EI.  It's really trying to be yet another carrot to incentivize people to go EI, in this case by helping others to get to EI.
