The badge currently received by Featured Employees, made by Patty Sponge.

Featured Employee is a special tradition on SBC (formerly known as Community Spotlight in 2010, and Employee of the Month from 2011 to 2017). It is awarded to the users who have made the most memorable contributions to the community, whether through activity or other means, similar to the Community Spotlight feature from TV.com. Your avatar and name will be featured on a widget on the forum for three months. If you are featured, you will receive:

  • Featured Employee badge.
  • 1,000 doubloons.
  • 200 experience points.
  • Name and avatar featured on widget, along with a description on why you were chosen. You will also be featured on Discord's #general channel description,
  • You can put "I was the Featured Employee for Fall/Winter/Spring/Summer year" in your signature or profile.

On January 1st, 2018, the system was entirely rebooted. Now, a member is featured once every three months to represent a season, making it more special. Past members who have been previously featured in EOTM may be able to be a Featured Employee as well.
