beautyheaven's 10th birthday member award winners – UPDATED: OCTOBER 25 2017
Please note: This article was updated on October 25 2017.
Following the recent forum discussions and your emails of concern regarding the winners we announced in our original article, we have reviewed the data and updated the following content of this article. We hope this helps to clarify how the awards were determined, provide the correct data, and recognise some members who weren’t originally acknowledged for their contribution to beautyheaven.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to say that we understand this situation has impacted many members and we’re terribly sorry for any feelings of distress, confusion, disappointment, anger or sadness that resulted. There was no motive behind these awards other than to recognise loyal members and evoke a supporting, celebratory vibe among the community during this special time.
We hope that the following clarifications help you to feel at ease moving forward. Please remember the most important thing: that you are part of a unique community that values you and supports each other. Whether you come up in the lists below or not, you are hugely valued by both your fellow members and the bh team.
Now for the revised information:

AWARDS FOR THE BIGGEST POINTS-SPENDER:
Since beautorium November 2015, when the new shopfront was launched:
Yohanna (15,365 points)
Shop A Everyday (14,260 points)
Miss19 (14,090 points)
iluvspring (13,870 points)
Petal (11,570 points)

Misfortune8 (9,115 points)
Lucrecia629 (8,270 points)
Duality (7,570 points)
ray_jay (7,450 points)
Notes: These awards have been calculated using data since the new beautorium shopfront relaunched, for beautorium in November 2015. Unfortunately we are unable to access complete records for all events/purchases all the way back to the first beautorium in March 2012. While this means that there may be people who spent more points than noted above, so that we can keep this award alive, please understand that this award is based on the last 2.5 years, not the last 5.5 years.
To keep the prize pack distribution fair, initially where a winner had already won in another category they were not eligible to win again, making the 2nd biggest points-spender the winner. In this case, Yohanna and Shop A Everyday are both winners.
Please take a moment to congratulate any members you haven’t already. On behalf of the beautyheaven team and our entire community, we’d like to say a big congratulations to each of these members. Thank you for your contributions to beautyheaven over the last 10 years. It wouldn’t be the same amazing community without you!
A few final notes:
No award winners are revoked of their titles or unentitled to their certificates and prize pack. Each member is deserving whether they were a top contributor since the site relaunch or in the past 10 years.
The new award winner (congrats melmeko!) who should have received a certificate and prize pack will see these arrive in the mail in the coming weeks.
As a small token to help express our sincerest apologies, by close of business this Friday 27 October, each member on the above lists and the ones previously published will receive 1000 bonus points to spend in the next beautorium.
We understand you may feel that awards based on volume aren’t a fair way to acknowledge contributions, however unlike ‘quality’, it is not determined by opinion. The only way to create awards based around ‘quality’ would be to vote for each other and we didn’t want to turn it into a popularity contest or competition – these awards are supposed to be fun and lighthearted.
Have you got a question or concern that hasn’t been covered above? Please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will ensure we don’t miss it and if it’s relevant to everyone, we can update this article so the community is up to date.
