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 :)

BMO


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:

It seems to me that GC Medals would be more appropriate than GA Medals.

I love the image in the OP!
I would be proud to have this medal if it existed and I was lucky enough to acquire one. :)

I completely agree with that. I was responding to rds saying that GA Medals might be used.

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.

Nope, this is dumb. If you're making a suggestion it's because you want the site to give you something whether it be new medals or new settings or something else.

I know, I saw it. I find it hilarious that there's been such a negative response over a suggestion medal, and you're sitting on one :P

That being said, I believe that if we're going to hand out medals for making a suggestion, we need to also hand them out to the people who add suggestions and help modify them. Overall, it's going to add a lot of medals.
