Not many new awards been released so I thought I'd shoot a few ideas for what new awards can be added to the forums, feel free to critique as you please. I asked a few other members for their suggestions as well so that we could compile a list of what we as the community would like to see implemented. Take a look.
I'm sure you're already aware of what this is. Users are allowed to purchase an award for a limited time or like groups, they go up and up as more people purchase them. With that, they are allowed to gift/sell the award to 10 people. ( or however many people you allow)
An award for someone who has served as a leader/owner of a usergroup.
As previously brought up by Aoki himself, a 5k posts award should definitely be put into play, it's a huge milestone to say the least and deserves an extra 'benefit' if you will.
Chatter or Lounger
An award for those you always see posting constantly in the lounge. Maybe have a set amount of posts in that section? 1k posts in there would be nice.
Popular would be a great way to get the like system more active. Nobody really 'likes' posts anymore. This award would give people a reason to actually want them and maybe even post more HQ in order for people to like their content. I think setting the bar at 100 likes to gain this award would be nice for now and gradually as more people earn it, raise it up.
And as for more of a suggestion than a new implement... I think that some of these awards need to have a purpose.
Drunk Award - I've tried making moves with Aoki on this one a few times and nobody has earned this so... secret requirements are meh because nobody is ever going to guess what you have to do in order to earn it.
Counter Strike - I don't think Matt is even active on site anymore, and idk if Aoki plays it still so meh something needs to be changed with that.
Posting awards - Some of these are ridiculous. 2k posts in the gaming section alone is ridiculous and won't be able to be earned for months and months and months away from now. Nobody will think about going for that award since it's so far out of reach. Honestly, 1k should be enough for stuff like that.
Same thing goes with Spy and Blackhat - they're unattainable by the majority . Writer, nobody is getting. That should be lowered.
I think there should be another donation award added
Nobody on this forum speaks of Minecraft, that award is shit - blunt truth.
Similar to the Bank Hard, except you bank hard in credits.
Hosted 5 giveaways, each with at least $5 of value put into the giveaway.
That pretty much wraps it up. Take some ideas, leave some, modify some; do whatever.
Thanks to nvr
for ideas and help.
