On the 14th December 2014, Zantos decided it was his time to step down as Leader of the (JAWA) Clan. He will be greatly missed on the Council and as part of the leadership, he has been one of the most effective leaders I've ever had the pleasure to work with. As recognition for his council and leadership contributions, he has been presented once more with the rank of Lord. This was done by Nightwing.

On the 9th June 2008, SiLink decided it'd be best to remove the Senator rank as it was clear the purpose it was meant for was not being met as the council spoke as a whole about issues. SiLink made it clear to Zantos that this was not a demotion as the rank was removed.

 Hall of Fame
Hofmedal.png
Zantos was inducted into the (JAWA) Hall of Fame by SiLink on the 8th October 2006 Here is what SiLink and others said about Zantos:

Zantos joined (JAWA) in January 2006. Zantos is one of the most quietest players I've ever met, he never asked for anything. This is a key requirement of someone who goes onto higher ranks and in June 2006 he was given the duty of Elite. Since then he was given Admin and then the rank of Council but shortly after he had to leave for personal reasons. In August 2006 he returned and was given the Disciple rank, a few months later he was given back his council position.

Dad o_o Funny, nice, and an amazing Council Member. Great person to get to know, and...It's always OVER NINE-THOUSAND!!!

Zanny :P you are without doubt the most random guy I ever ran into lol :P but besides that, a nice chat too, helpful as a Council and all round good friend to the clan, keep up the good work zanny

Though I haven't really taken the time to have a nice long talk with him, Zantos has always had the image of the level headed peace maker in my mind while still being crazy and hilarious. I don't think I have ever met nor ever will meet another member who was such a good Council Memeber while maintaining his likable character.

Zantos has always been good to me, in every way. He's always been there for me if I had problems IRL and in the clan of (JAWA). He's helped me, and we have been through bad and good times together, and I am fairly sure that if we meet up sometime, we will have such a good time drinking whiskey and talking about life while watching the sunset. When Zantos left or whatever I got bothered and I felt something was missing and when he later returned to (JAWA) I was thrilled, and he persuaded me to re-join as well. He is a great friend, a good Council, a good admin, and a good person. We joke as we would be brothers and talk as we were married. That's how things are supposed to be. If you know a person that much so you can talk about everything then you're life is complete. What I really want to say is: If everyone was like Zantos then we wouldn't be needing a paradise... we would already be there.

I didn't know much about Zantos, until he became my training master. Since that day, I got more than a master, I got a best friend, a great confident and an amazing advisor. I don't think there is anyone else who knows so much about me. Zantos inspired me to become better, and if I had to describe him in one word, it would be : Awesome.

Zantos is probably one of my most valued friendships I have ever made from an online community, he has time and time again gone above and beyond in his services to the clan. His leadership is something I have admired since I brought him into the leadership post and while his time was short, he made such a big impact in our community, effecting change in not only structure but in attitude. It is the hardest thing to accomplish as a leader, to sway the attitudes and minds of those around you, opposing you. It is easy to win the minds of those loyal to you, but in the end Zantos proved to be the peoples champion. In almost every aspect as a member, Council Memeber and Leader, Zantos provided the clan with so much encouragement and positive energy that he often forgot to see the sort of effect he was having on the clan. As a friend he has helped me in a lot of ways over the past year and he has never given up on me, even in my darkest moments and I will always be thankful for his patience and tough luck approach to telling me how it is.

I honestly don't know if all the members will understand or see the sort of effect Zantos had on the clan, but I'm telling you this that the day Zantos stepped down from leader and the day he left the clan at the end of 2014, was a day that we lost a large contributor who has done a lot more for members than is immediately apparent. He will always be among the two most effective leaders I have ever had the pleasure to meet, work with and become friends with.

Being a leader is certainly not an easy task and often people who think they know what it entails are surely mistaken if they ever take up the seat themselves. It comes with stress and hardships that even in a small community of 70 members can be difficult to deal with. When you go through these sorts of things, you start to get effected by them and they start to change you as a Leader, yet for all the hard moments Zantos did what a Leader should do. He never let others fail completely and he never once thought himself above others or let it cloud his mind with entitlement or increased self worth. He was a humble leader with a lot of progressive ideals.

I come back to his wiki profile now at the end of 2014 to write up this Hall of Fame that he first received in 2006, to write my thoughts on why Zantos deserves this and many of the awards and recognitions we have to offer. To Zantos, you will always be the most awesome (JAWA) Member the clan has ever had. You can go away now and succeed in your life being proud of what you accomplished here. The success of a Leader is not judged by the longevity of his career, but by the way he lead and by the way he will be remembered. Thank you for everything.

 Contribution Award

x1

Zantos has been with (JAWA) for a very long time now, most of the time he has spent in the clan has been holding the Council rank and has had a huge influence on the clan ever since joining. Zantos joined (JAWA) when FoJ was abandoned and (JAWA) was revived, in FoJ Zantos held the Master rank and when (JAWA) was reformed he was not very happy that he got the rank of Knight after working towards Master in FoJ which to be honest I find quite hilarious ^_^;. Even after that happening, Zantos still shown his dedication and has stuck with us for almost 3 years now. He has held the rank of Council for around 2 years now and along with Podoplovik he is one of the longest serving council memebers in the clans history. Zantos is the type of person that doesn't go with what I say all the time which is a quality I like to see in a council memeber since I need people to disagree with me in order to see all sides of an idea and how to better that idea. I am awarding Zantos the contribution award for his long service as a council memeber, his loyalty to the clan and his funny way of approaching things which has kept us entertained for years.
