Awardings?

Post by Haruka » Wed Nov 10, 2010 9:03 pm

This idea was burried on my head for some time.

Long years ago there was a forum (a big one) that I frequented and it existed every year a kind of an awarding event to all the forum members (made by the adminstrators and moderators of the forum), which was having a bar on their profile, under their avatars and basic details, saying something like "Premium member". That award was given to every member that are honoured for things like:

- Have contributed to an evolution of the community and/or the forum itself

- Notable behaviour among the community

- Obidience to the forum's rules

- Active user

- Etc

Members who continued on the following years to keep these positive behaviours, would keep the bar, otherwise it would be taken out.

I wonder if this could be considered by the RPC moderators and admnistrators. I believe this could incentive the RPC members to contribute to a good atmosphere in the forum, preventing annoying things, and to the members contribute something more to help the forum grow and evolve positively.

I'm not sure there are enough active members on this forum for this. But there used to be a similar event on a forum I like and it was really nice.

Do you think so?

Perhaps this could be discussed by other moderators and admnis, and reaching to a conclusion.

An alternative to the bar could be a different nickname colour (which means those members are integrated in a "Premium" [or any other name, maybe one related to Rayman's gaming universe] group).

I don't think the laureates should be granted anything, being chosen as a "Premium" is satisfying enough. :)

Are you saying that a different colour on the nicknames would be ok?

Perhaps a white colour?

On the contrary, I'm saying that I don't think so.

I think a little star to the right of your gender icon that says ‘Honoured Member’ when you put your cursor over it would be enough.

That's another idea. But I guess the remaining mods and admins didn't check this yet.

If anything I say sounds offensive, mean or rude in any way, it is not, no matter how sure you are. If we appear to be in a heated argument, I am perceiving it as a calm debate. WAGAZAKI!!!!

I imediately opened a new tab and looked at this video.

And I actually think it's a pretty good idea.

Aye, and what do these ''premium members'' get?
The right to use custom ranks?
That would be beyond awesome. :P

I think it would be a good idea if we had more active members, which I'm sure will come when Origins comes out.

I like this idea very much. :) I'd love to have coloured names! 8D

That's, like, saying only white people can use these toilets. :) I concur with Serza.

According to your flawed argument, everyone should be allowed to carry guns, since policemen do. :mrgreen:

Policemen shouldn't carry guns anyway. :mryellow: No one should carry guns. We should all have a good spear on us, because out yonder, there be dragons. But let's stick to the point; not EVERYONE would get the coloured awesomeness, only the worthy people. The weak, slavish types can rot in their yellowy fonts. :wink:
