Hey guys!

Yes I'm still alive.  Just barely so, however lol

Man, good to see all the action on the boards!  

My only suggestion are "country" based badges... y'know, something to reflect where we are from.  So say a USA or CAN badge for Americans and Canadians.  Obviously there would be more like FRA for France, SPA for Spain...

Anyways, that's the only thing I can think of at the moment.  Then again, might just be a tad redundant seeing as we all have "location" info right under our avatars....

I think you could go ahead and award the first round of ribbons, in say a month, for the obvious receipiants.
They being Doc , Littlewars , Malechi , Plageman , Scottie and Sundance - you guys are the mainstay of this community. If it wasn't for you guys Tannhauser would be a dead duck by now - FFG being no help unlike ToY.

Then have set times for new awards say the middle/late December , September , June and March .

Open nominations in the preceeding months for who gets which award, for example Sundance for Developer of New Outstanding Map (The Foix Bunker) with a limit of say two nominations per member per quarter. And of course you can't nominate yourself.

A community vote in say the four weeks before award date. With maybe a limit of three votes per member. You could use a points based system giving three , two and one point to indicate your top three nominations in order of merit but that could get messy and complicated but there is only twenty three members of this forum as I write this. And of course you can't vote for yourself.

And then the top three get the ribbons for the quarter or two a quarter and three in December the third being for Outstanding Overall Contributor of the Year.


Leaving open the option for new ribbons to created as and when.
For example a couple that has not been suggested :

1) "Honourable Mention" or "Mentioned In Dispatches" for anyone who gets their name listed in the credits of any  official product. This one would be an automatic award on release of the product. The same ribbon could be used with different lettering for the product in question ie D for Daedalus , FO for Field Ops etc etc

2) "Outstanding Overall Contributor Of The Year" or "Medal of Honour" as an Annual award at Christmas for the most deserving person that year. Again same ribbon could be used with the year numbered in the middle ie 08 for 2008 , 09 for 2009 , 10 for 2010 etc etc

That is really not for me to decide.

We are a democracy. We vote and listen to all ideas.

I don't know if I even like the idea of these ribbons.

It kind of gives the forum an "old boys club" feel that might be alienating to new posters. As an example; what if someone with lots of "ribbons" posts an erroneous or misinformed comment; a newbie (with no ribbons) might be reluctant to post something that is contradictory to the Tannbunker "elite". That would be counter productive.

It's weird to me to award each other these arbitrary accolades. Isn't just making stuff rewarding enough? Not fond of ranking systems I guess. I'd like it if we are just a bunch of equally enthusiastic players contributing to the game community. Maybe having something like forum-created "theme project" threads would be a better community builder, that's worked well before!
