I think it should be uniform all around unless you can weigh importance-which is subjective. Just make them all bronze Silver and Gold and add Platinum for miles stones.

Or add the arabic numbers to the current system that totals accomplishments.

I also think map makers deserves more special recognition.



This would be my official stance on the whole thing :)

Is there anything wrong with these?



The only thing is some people think it skews the medal table too much, but they are virtual medals so what is the big deal. Unfortunately because I stand to gain the most from a change like that-some will say I am biased toward a change like that. Reality is I have always wanted it like this-even when I was just starting off in the tourney world.

Bronze, silver, gold, platinum for all types of medals is probably the best solution. As it deals with the inevitable inflation of some types of medals. Different standards could be set for different types of medals.

Not necessarily! I am not opposed to using them for the sake of them, I would just prefer to have one system. If it proves to be unavoidable, I have on qualms with including Arabic numerals.

Until this is implemented, I will just have to stare at the cup I made for myself. Perhaps others will get joy from it as well :)

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)!

BMO

Its will be good to know what are you have in mind?
Now many people like Cairns, and Higlander, give hes sugestions,and its look that you have own sugestion but we dont know what is it ?
Romans are hard to be used, because they are to long(XXX present only number 30) , and arabic can in very long run be good solution(999- these its very long number and i can not find player who are come close to 1/3 of these number).
Also arabic could be very usefull because implementation of other medal sugestion could be done much faster(like mine Unique map achievement medal)


edit: now when i look on mine medals,i notice that you have 4 digit place (XVII), these mean that if you implement Arabic, then you could seal these for very long time,because its hard for me to see that some in near future can come to 9999 medals.

I'd be quite happy to have this, as long as it provides functionality, but it still doesn't solve the numeric issue on the medals.

When I read your suggestion I was shocked it had not been talked about. A simple and easy suggestion if we are going to give a lot of medals away.

qwert and HA, I talked to rds in chat today and he confirmed the plan is to go with something like agentcom's suggestion, not lots and lots of medals. There will be intervals, 50, 100, ... don't know from there.

My vote is still to maintain the tradition of the roman numerals and award additional medals at a staggered level of perhaps 50 ("L"), 100 ("C") and 200 ("CC").

There will still be an imbalance in how easy medals are to earn, but I don't really see the problem of having someone like Highlanderattack getting 3 more medals for all the tourneys he's organized. And I can't wait to see cairns get the only "L" cartography medal :)


I think the pure genius of coincidence of Roman Numeral 200 being "CC" is almost enough by itself to pick up this template for raising the cap :P. This is something that I'd like to be working on for you guys, since it's something I can help out with without all of the programming, etc! I feel like raising the medal caps is a quick small thing that I can do that affects a lot of players greatly. After all -- who doesn't like having that awesome personal goal? Now maybe to hammer out a plan :)

so after XXX what will stand on medal?
XXXI---these could go
XXXII--nothing
XXXIII-nothing
XXXIV-nothing
XXXV-these could be
XXXVI-nothing
XXXVII-nothing
XXXVIII-nothing
XXXIX-nothing
XL-these could be
XLI-these could be
XLII-these could be
XLIII-nothing
XLIV-these could be
XLV-these could be
XLVI-these could be
XLVII-nothing
XLVIII-nothing
XLIX-these could be
L-these could be
------------------------
so these mean that any number who have III and V will be visible and number with VII and VIII will not be visible?
Still think that arabic number are better solution, but like i say in page 4, these its ...........

I imagine...
At 30 you get XXX
from 31 - 49, medal does not change.
at 50 you are awarded with L
from 51 - 99 medal does not change.
and so on.

When you reach 50, it counts as 1 new medal, not 20. Guess that's just how I interpreted the plan. It's possible it is somehow different.
