I was referring specifically to the discussion about whether tournament organizing or map-making is harder (which is obvious if you've read the original post to which I referred). If that continues, I will indeed lock the thread.

Well aware of that... :) but i think if people want that discussion they'll have it here or somewhere else...topics quite often go off-track, but it doesn't help threatening ;)

They're welcome to have it wherever they want that is not in Suggestions. I am not threatening, simply explaining what will happen.

That is all.

Once again this topic comes up. What no one has realized or at least stated, these medals are virtual and do not cost money to produce(for the most part). Caps are ridiculous in my opinion.

Just like some tourneys are much more valued and important to me (both running and winning), all of the categories for gaining a medal come with less or more value. Unless you add a time factor for each medal you cannot numerically give credit of less or more value in a medal.

Since the medals are a basic count for an achievement, that is what they should be (a count). You have counts associated with most medals consisting of bronze, silver, and gold. Either make all the medals the same with the three medal colors, or use the Arabic numbers to indicate how many medals you have for each category. I would actually prefer the bronze, silver and gold, and then have a database where you can search each category like the Tournament tabs we have in the tournament world.

The thing is, everyone has their opinion and no way we will ever agree which way is right. Importance of a single medal is in the eye of the beholder anyway. If I made a map and got credit for one medal for making a map, I believe that would be more important to me than the thirty capped amount I have for winning tourneys. I think it was LMS who made a point of listing 30 old tourneys under the medal. In my case, I agree-why bother listing the first thirty tourneys I made and ran under each capped medal (looks just ridiculous). Don't list any.

There are many ways to get a medal. Crazy idiots like me will get a lot of them. Medal hunters will get a lot of them. It still comes down to what do they mean to you. I threw away over 20 real trophies a few years ago. I took pictures of them and moved on. I sometimes regret that decision, but in reality, they just took up space. I know what I accomplished with the real trophies. I know what I have accomplished insanely with CC.

Someone hopefully will make a decision on this one day, but even if they do and things change, the real meaning of a virtual medal is an individuals meaning and not much more.

Add this thread to the many times it has been suggested, then someone make a real decision, or more on until the next time it gets suggested--have fun.

Wow, did not even realize this is not even in real suggestions anymore. Someone will start this topic again.

I am happy for DICKtator Metsfanmax he can flex his virtual muscles and move this to a suggestion not worthy of being on the front page.

HighlanderAttack, this suggestion is in the "Submitted Suggestions", which means it's been submitted to me and the programmer to actually be done! Besides that, we can be cordial to the Volunteer Team and I'm sure it will be reciprocated.

While I'm here, a minor update:

There's a process nailed down for each department, and I am now just waiting on the medal images to be made. Update coming soon(ish)!

For technical feasibility reasons, we're currently looking at sticking with Roman numerals. Arabic numerals are not off the table, however.

What Mets said! I have to see how they look first, and then decide, though I am hoping to stay with Roman Numerals where it's feasible and doesn't clutter up the medal image.
