There is either an out right medal count or an achievement level medal type like the majority of the medals in my opinion. Again, someone compile the ideas and let there be a vote. Debating about caps on virtual medals (non tangible and all in all meaningless for the most part) is always going to be a he said she said opinion thing. There is no right or wrong as everyone has their opinion. If this site wants to do what is right it would let the people vote on as many ideas that we can come up with. It would not be hard to accomplish this. If you do not do it this way, the mods basically are dictators and you will do it our way and like it kind of people.
Mods only make suggestions to owners and programmers.
For myself, I make suggestions so that the programmer knows all sides of an argument. It's not really our choice and, historically, we aren't even aware of an update until just before release anyway. By that time, what meaningful input can be given? I'm hoping this will change in the future. However, the mods are currently, most definitely, not in charge of updates or how, when, and if they are implemented.
Yes. We are hoping that this will change in the (near) future. A system is being set up that allows us to facilitate the movement of information between the users and the admin via the mods. We have sort of used that for this suggestion, and I think the result has been a tentative success.
As a result of everyone's discussion, we have come back to a little bit of a middle ground between the high levels that I originally suggested and the more generous views of some of the users that have posted here. Please note that the plan is still not to award 1 medal per achievement, but to bring the levels down a little bit and hopefully make a few more people happy.
What do you guys think about a level system like the following:
Tournament Organizing and Victories:
This version allows for 4 additional medals per category, keeps the "good looks" of the roman numerals, adjusts the requirements to loosely track the difficulty in achieving medals, and allows for the "prestige-factor" of the leveled system.
This was not my idea, it was a combination of ideas from the users, department leaders, other moderators and the admin. But I, for one, support it.
I fully realize that we're never going to make everyone happy, but is this at least an acceptable compromise?
