I think part of his argument was that you still had to win.

Love the mature response there Buddy. Also note that you benefited from it. ;)


You get what you pay for BUDDY. 'tis how the world works after all.

You want a mature response? Ok...

There were several people who commited their time and efforts for free because they wanted to help improve the site. Now why would you get offended that they get some recognition out of it? Are you perhaps afraid that your own medals will suffer some kind of inflation? How small a person must one be to want to take away recognition from others only to boost his own ego?

Personally, I didn't know I was getting a medal for participating. And personally it doesn't matter to me, if they'd decide to take it away it'd be fine with me, I participated because I wanted to give a shot at a friendly competition and help the site. However the site decided to thank me and all other participants by giving us medals, and frankly I think it shows that the site respects their members, and appreciates the efforts of those members that spend their time and effort for free just to help a website they like.

TL;DR: Suck it up, cupcake. ;)

Toby's got it right on. In fact, that's my entire argument. Like I said, if you want to recognize constants for participating, but not quite being good enough to win, then make a participation ribbon. But don't give out a contest achievement medal. What exactly did you achieve? Nothing. Congrats to you for putting forth the time and effort. But sorry, you didn't achieve anything, you didn't actually WIN anything, you simply showed up.

I was fortunate and skilled enough as a kid to never receive an 8th place purple ribbon for Track and Field. :lol: When my brothers did their track, everyone got a ribbon for "Participant'. The top 3 designs should get a contest award for being a finalist.

And that's all I'm trying to say. That would probably even be fair.
Toby, sometimes, you're alright.

Just to clarify, the contest achievement medals are being handed out in accordance to what the webmaster, lackattack, has requested we use them as. He personally wants to see them handed out much more regularly (agree or disagree, that is your right) and so that is what is being done.

I think that instead of jumping into the thread and being accusatory it should be focused on that fumandomuerte has provided us with an excellent new badge to be used and he deserves his congratulations, not an argument about the merits of contest achievement medal awards.

Thanks everybody and sorry for the late answer. I'm very glad to obtain the rarest medal among CC, now I'll need to work harder to get the 2 I'm missing.
I just need time to fix my schedule/duties to start working on a map and a tourney =P
Congratulations to the other contenders!
