These are a series of Monthly awards that are given to a wide variety of users, and of course, YOU DECIDE! Active editors, sociable users, Admins, artist, Users new and old can revive these titles! Of course, there are rules; So look at them Here. I will list the general rules in this blog. The winner of of an Emerald will receive a custom user box they can but on their user page!
If you are wondering why i did not make Site Discussion about this; it is because we have like 10 going on right now and i am not sure if i want to make this an official contest.
