Conquerors permanently retain icon on profile

Postby Metsfanmax on Tue Dec 25, 2012 12:01 pm

Concise description:
  • Any person who has reached conqueror status retains the conqueror icon as their displayed icon, even after they are no longer on top of the scoreboard.

Specifics/Details:
  • They would still move up and down the scoreboard in rank and score; they would just keep the same icon.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It requires a bit of work and dedication to reach the top of the scoreboard, and I think a nice reward is to have that effort rewarded by letting everyone know that you once reached the top. It's similar to the idea that here in the US, we give a former president the honorific title "Mr. President" even after they have left office.
  • This is probably not trivial to code.

How do you differentiate between the current conqueror, and the previous ones?
Also conquerors have their own medal, so I think it already fits

I think it's enough with the medal. Shows that they once were conquerors but doesn't make it look like they still are.
AoG for President of the World!!
I promise he will put George W. Bush to shame!

Agree that the rank should be lost as they do have a medal.
