I like the medal. Did you just add that or did I miss it when I first saw this topic?

Not a fan of this idea, we'd have people suggesting all kinds of crazy stuff just to get the medal which wastes everyone's time.

False.

Suggestions are good and important. If people suggest stupid things, they'll get called on it AND the suggestion won't be implemented. You only get the medal if something is implemented.

Will add a poll soon to see if people are still interested in this suggestion.

In the mean time... Anything anyone would change or add to my idea?

i would have this as its own medal as it relates to the contributions THIS forum makes to the site, just like Tournaments and Foundry have their own medals to recognise contributions to the site by people in those forums.

Re: New Leadership and Improving Suggestions

greenoaks wrote:One change Agentcom that you could make is to follow the lead of Tournaments and the Foundry.

Both of those forums have their own medals for those that participate there. Tournaments give Contribution medals to those that run tourneys and Acheivement ones to those that win them. Foundy also provide their own to those who create maps for us to play on.

So how about implementing this great idea of grifftron's and have your very own Suggs Medal.

Recognising the efforts of people who contribute is a good idea ;) Just ask Tournaments or the Foundry.


This is something that gets brought up from time to time. I love the idea. We actually have permission to award medals. However, we've never been able to come up with a system for it. One idea was to track users' substantive posts and give to the person with the most. Another was to have the Suggestions Mods nominate and vote on people. But you've seen the revolving door in this forum. None of these ever got off the ground. Plus both of those require a not insignificant amount of time from someone. And that's time that can't be spent running around here doing what we do. At present, with us working with the new leadership to get a new system in place, there is definitely not time to do this. Perhaps in the future ... idk.

I would say that the one medal idea that is a possibility right now is a medal for people that get a unique suggestion implemented. Obviously, you still have to come up with selection criteria, but my initial thoughts were (and I'm going from memory now, not having tracked down my post):

Usually goes to the OP IF the OP has significantly furthered the suggestion and remained active for all or most of the process. The suggestion has to be unique. No medal for proposing something that you should have found somewhere else. (But I suppose this wouldn't have to be a hard-and-fast rule ... idk)
Sometimes can go to someone who has taken over a suggestion and really steered the conversation and development.

I don't know if we'll have any limits on how many medals we can hand out (1 per year that a suggestion sits there? :lol: ), but I'm open to handing out an extra medal for a suggestion when a couple people have tag-teamed it.

So, I like the idea of actually handing out our medals, in theory, but for now, I would only expect them for implemented suggestions going forward. Whether it gets any more widespread than that or whether we'll every retrospectively issue those will just be based on time and priorities.

Also, I love that little light bulb medal, but for now it would just be a GA.

The only problem I have with awarding them based on having a person's Suggestion implemented is that we may award the wrong person, sometimes. There are plenty of old/rejected Suggestions that are similar to ones that are, even now, making headway in the Submitted Forum, I'm sure. The key difference between Suggestions and Foundry/Tournaments is that over there, the user gets a medal for not only thinking of the map or tournament, but working on it until the very end. There is always 1 (sometimes 2) definite people who get the medal with no ambiguity.

GA medals for active Suggestions members sounds great to me, though :)

A very good point.
Still though, it's a good idea, and might be worth implementing despite that it's going to cause one or two disputes down the road. I mean, if it's a head-scratcher just call in ES or KA or one of the other C&A lads, they're used to getting tough nuts thrown their way every day :lol:

There seems to be an inconsistency there. It was my understanding that the movers of implemented suggestions got GCs, but none were awarded to any of the people last year whose suggestions were implemented. I took it up with Andy Dufresne, who responded in a PM that it was never the practise. I'm sure that's wrong, because I've seen people who had those GCs, but I can't remember who, and my forum search skills suck, so I dropped the matter.

It seems it was once the practise, but at some point was dropped and forgotten. Perhaps someone with more free time and/or better forum search skills than me could research this and see exactly when and why the practise ended?

I'm all in favour of resuming it, but we should do so retroactively.

And if the GCs are replaced with a new SC medal, I'd be okay with that also, although I don't see it as a priority.

As far as the policy goes, I can speak to that. I don't think GC's have ever been given out for Suggestions in general. There have been medals given out in the past for individuals who have proven to be helpful in the forum and extremely helpful in getting specific suggestions implemented. However, it wasn't just that a medal was given for nominating an idea that was pushed through.

As far as this idea goes in general, I think we'd have to set up certain criteria that would need to be met before a medal would be awarded. All posts would have to be addressed. The OP would need to be kept current and updated as things were changing in the thread and discussion. So, while I love medals and would love to see this come to fruition, a little more structure needs to be nailed down first.

The OP would need to be kept current and updated as things were changing in the thread and discussion. So, while I love medals and would love to see this come to fruition, a little more structure needs to be nailed down first.

Agreed.
