Post Tannbunker ribbons?  Reply with quote
Want to bring this back up.

Not too long ago We were thinking of something what the french forums did with ribbons for various things (US forum, veteran, savage tales, fluff contributor, etc.)

wanted some idears

would you want new custom created badges or use ribbons that are all ready used by our men and women in the service click the link below to see what I mean.

Or would you like to see badges rather than ribbons?

If you're going down this road I think custom ribbons would be the best - as they use on the French forum.
Badges would probably take up too much space and look a bit untidy. Using actual ribbons from either US/UK/French medals , award and decorations might cause offence to friends and family of actual receipients of these awards as they are generally given for acts of heroism and bravery.

Then there is the question of when and how often these are awarded - yearly , bi-annually , quarterly or monthly ?
Rules , conditions and circumstances will have to be clearly defined - it will save a lot of arguments later.
And the biggest problem is who decides who gets what - is it a single person or a committee ?

tomodachi -

You voiced my thoughts exactly. Using the actual ribbons is not the way to go. We have not earned those and should make up our own if that's what people want to do. This is not something that is important to me one way or the other.

You could have a nominating forum and people could start threads to nominate someone for something and others could second on the same thread and if there were enough yes votes without any no votes then the ribbon is awarded.

Excelent point.

As for how they would be awarded there are various ways.

A vote by public or committee and/or meeting requirement.

Example: A ribbon for people that contributed to Savage tales, being doc's blog and constantly contributes to it, it is a no "brainer" that a ST ribbon would go to him  neureal

I am going to let this discussion smooth out to see what else comes to mind.

but here are some thoughts for ribbons/badges

French Forum (ToY) (frequent posters over at French Forum)
FFG Forum (frequent posters over at FFG)
Savage Tales (those who contribute frequently to ST)
Translator (people who have contributed large amounts of translations where FFG has failed to do)
Tannbunker (See FFG and ToY)
Fluff/Creator (those who have contributed new materials to the game: Scenarios, characters, equipments, maps, stories, art, etc.)

Here are the suggested Ribbons for Player Factions:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• Matriarchy Players
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• Reich Players
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
• Union Players

EDIT: Revised the above Ribbons as per tomodachi6874's observations below. He was absolutely correct in his assertion as to the colors that should be used.

Malechi - You are the graphics king , you must create this stuff in your sleep.
Just a minor thing but I'd have different background colours for the faction ribbons in keeping with the colours used for the faction tokens.
Matriarchy would be Red (as you used for the Reich)
Reich would be Green (not a bright green maybe with a hint of grey)
Union would be Buff Yellow/Orange (as you used for the Matriarchy)

And the one with TOY in the center of the ribbon should read "Frequent Poster of Substance at French (or TOY) Forum" rather than "Frequent Poster of Substance at Fantasy Flight Games Forum"

Then only thing to decide who or how they are awarded - some are a given - the obvious ones being Doc , Littlewars , Malechi , Plageman , Scottie and Sundance.

So how do we want to award the ribbons?

like I said some are a given Doc and Savage tales owner, post count ribbon, and fan of a certain faction.

Would anone want to see a vote every so many months for other ribbons like map makers, characters, contributors to Savage tales. Something like that?

Just a rough example

say every 3 months we will nominate several people and the communitee will vote, giving out say 2 ribbons?

And re there any other suggestions for ribbons?

keep talkin'
