Hi,

They'll be some interesting changes around WDF over the coming months, first of which is the new "Award Badges" system.

We are currently in the process of creating Badge Titles so there's only currently a few available e.g. Competition Winner, Spam Reporter, Website of the Month Winner, Top Greeter etc etc.... but we will be adding more over the coming weeks, so keep a look out for those! You may very well be the winner of one shortly! :)

Awards will be viewable at the bottom of your mini profile on all your posts/topics and also within the "Awards" tab within your main profile.

Example 1: Topic View

awards_example.png

Example 2: Profile

awards_profile_example.png

The aim is to have around 15 different award types to start with and go from there, if you have any suggestions for new award badges e.g. "CSS Guru", "Great Support" etc etc .... please do let us know.

Badges are stackable, meaning that they can be accumulated, so you're not limited to just 1 badge! :) - you can show off all your different types of awards.

Thanks and keep enjoying the forum! :)

Ugliest avatar?? (Ben - watch out).

Best gallery (I'd better add a few more photos).

Are the new badges going to be for keeps or only until the badge is awarded the next time?
If for keeps, then perhaps the badge should have the date ie Best Gallery Jan 2011.

Is the decision only with you, Ben, or a chosen moderator or the result of a members vote? (Open to abuse like the FIFA decision probably).

Nice idea, is there only going to be one winner of a certain badge or will it be a multiple thing, where lots can be most helpful or most popular?

How about one for most addicted, but rather than being based on post count it can be based on posts a day.

LOL!

Great suggestions, hopefully get these finalised this weekend.

:)

@ Dizi

There may be some time-sensitive badges e.g. expires after 30 days, there could be a 1st, 2nd 3rd total posts badge.... So there would only be one of those I guess... Still thinking about it.

But currently the plan is to have badges all members can attain and also collect as you can earn multiple badges! :)

OK, we've pretty much got the Awards ironed out, but as you'll appreciate it's currently a busy period, i'm just about to shoot out the door to do the whole Christmas Thing with family, so it may have to wait until next year! - But it's gonna be one hell of a year for the forum! :)

Cheers.

Looks and sounds good! Can't wait to see them.

- Demi God
- HTML HeavyWeight
- +1 King (Achievement for the person who gives the most plus ones or has received the most - moderation needed on this i reckon)
- Post Master (Person who posts the most useful things)
- Early Bird (Person who consistently gets in there early for offering advice)
- Night Owl (Person who is on till early hours hooking people up -not sure how this will work with different time zones?)
- Web King (Sick individuals who know everything)


A few there :p Could be really good fun!
