Title: How the awards system works
Post by: bob on May 15, 2013, 07:46:30 PM
So I just added a new award for the members that signed up in the first month of the forums, I guess it would be a good time to explain how it all works

We have 3 awards that are based on your registration date: Founder, Veteran, Die-Hard.

(http://totalminerforums.net/awards/1.png) is for those that registered on the 1st day that the forums were public, April 12 2013
(http://totalminerforums.net/awards/2.png) is for those that registered within the first week, April 13-April 20 2013
(http://totalminerforums.net/awards/9.png) is for those who registered in the first month, April 21-May 12 2013

There will not be any more registration date based awards after die-hard. All awards require you to have 25 posts or more. If you don't have that, you are not eligible. Having a founder award doesn't qualify you for a veteran or die-hard award. You can only have 1. All awards are based on server time, which is EST. So if it was April 20, at 10PM your local time, but April 21 by server time, you get the die-hard award, not veteran.

The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/3.png) award is self explanatory, previous winners of Miner of the Month get this one.

The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/8.png) award is for people who win an art-based competition, contributed art to the site, or get their texture pack selected to be in-game.

The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/10.png) award is for those who have the robotic avatar in game.

The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/11.png) award is given to those who have been on the forums for at least 1 years time + have at least 100 posts.

 The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/17.png) award is for people who have been on the forums for at least 2 years time + have at least 300 posts.

 The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/14.png) award is given for creating 5 or more Total Miner guides that get placed in the guide section of the forums

 The (http://totalminerforums.net/awards/16.png) award is for people who had placed in the top 10 of the forum statistics page as of the 2 year forum anniversary

Also, all awards are given manually. If you should have an award, but don't, send a message to me and I will get it fixed up.

If you haven't met all the requirements for receiving an award, the answer to your question is no, I will not make an exception for you.

-any awards for moron of the month? hint hint...lol

-also can former MOTM get the award again?

-what will we do for the members when we hit next year (elder) if this game lasts this long?

-Do you think of adding an award about being on the forums commonly. call it the frequent flyer, if you went on the website every day for a month.

-what will we do for the members when we hit next year (elder) if this game lasts this long? I dunno. Check back in 11 months and I'll come up with something then :P

-Do you think of adding an award about being on the forums commonly. call it the frequent flyer, if you went on the website every day for a month. Too hard to keep track of. This is all done manually

You have either die hard, veteran, or what I have. You joined the first week, so you have veteran, not die hard.

I think an award for having an idea that gets the thumbs up from Craig would be nice. It might encourage people to think of ways to make the game better, and would help give Craig more ideas to work with for future updates
Title: Re: How the awards system works
Post by: TRex on September 20, 2013, 02:15:49 AM
That might be a hard one also people will be saying I deserved that award for making a hint on the idea while others may have posted ways of improving the idea.  I kinda don't support this because think how many people would be asking for it.

Mabye a reward for the time you have been on the sever.
Pup:  registered for 6 months
Good Dog: registered for 1 year
Good Old Dog: registered for 1 1/2 years
War Dog: registered for 2 years

Mabye also it uses last online date so if you join the forum post and never see you again you would not get it till you log in again.

Post by: BossyPunch on September 20, 2013, 08:29:39 AM
technically that says registration DATE.  what trex recommended were time periods, so its possable, i would like it because there are alot of dedicated forum members that joined a little too late that should get some award, but alot of people make profiles and dont get on anymore, so it could be alot of trouble giving to all those people. even with needing 15 post. i would make it to were you need at least 50, because even that isnt toooo hard to get.
Title: Re: How the awards system works
Post by: Dauntless395 on September 20, 2013, 10:27:19 AM
The awards are not automatically tracked and given out, they are manually given by the forum administrators. So the problem with members who make an account and are never heard from again will not be an issue.
As for the "award for being on TM forums for X time", I don't think it's too necessary. I assume something will be given out for the anniversary awards later down the road, but a "0.5 year, 1 year, 1.5 year" award seems too much, and would simply give bob and Evesy more things to deal with when hundreds of members are begging for their awards.

Congrats on Veteran ^_^

I think a new membergroup would be better ^_^ kinda like how Elder worked.
So if you have been on these forums for a year, you will be eligible to join the elder group. ^_^ Or should we just keep it as a badge?

I wish I would have made an account when I first got on these forums. I would have been a founder. I had been following the old forums for two months and switched immediately. Although back then I just looked at the dev update topics.

Edit: Is there by any chance we could prioritise our awards, so we can display the 2 awards we have, as mine currently are "1 Year" and "Founder", and prefer the awards as "1 Year" and "MotM"?

You've always been able to do that, go to the show awards setting on your profile, and you can choose which ones get top billing. It's limited to showing 2 in forum posts due to size constraints.

And yes, I shall be the first winner of the Tom award ;)

How bout some new awards that people can strive for instead of throwing
candy at the same 10 people who are here all day.

I feel like the only people who post nowdays have a boatload of
(1 year, founder, top ten) awards already.

This site is starting to become a clubhouse..

It was fairly easily obtainable. Everyone had 2 years to get in 1 of 30 available spots. That's pretty excellent odds for a forum of our size actually.

Not really no, Nobody knew about it bob.... Easily obtainable to those who leave the forums open all day? Or to those who make 1000s of spam posts? Your joking right? /-: js dude.... Calling it easily obtainable is kinda an insult to alot of forum members.

for all practical purposes bob, IT WAS NEVER OBTAINABLE to many people. besides the same 10 posters.
Im screen capping that statement for my luz folder....

I gotta go take a walk or something, blow off some steam...
I'll return with an army of 100 supporters,

Why can no-one focus on growing our community smh... LONG LIVE TM!

I agree with this, although it needs to have some difficulty in it otherwise people would just spam to get awards. Maybe there could be one in regards to how many likes you have had on posts, making people striving for the awards post actual quality stuff. There should be too many easy to obtain though, maybe like 1 or 2.

Of course I didn't tell people I was going to make this award. It was to award the people who have been the most active in this community over the last 2 years. If I would have told people I was doing it, then the results would have been skewed by people purposely doing things to get on that list.

If you don't like it, feel free to go.

Yup they're all done by hand. Special thanks to Mysterio for keeping track of the awards that need regular updating for me
That sounds incredibly painful XD
This is also a very nice reason to not have easy to obtain awards.

That's why I never told anyone I was doing it, so that people wouldn't purposely try to spam and get on the stats page thinking they'd get an award. It's a one time deal, so nobody new will be getting this award even if they do bump someone off the page. I wanted it to be for members who were active because they enjoy it, not for people who would only be active just to get an award.

You are only excited about this award being added since you are one of the members receiving it.

yes I do help and id be glad to see more but you can only go to far you guys got to relies theres over 1000 members not counting but IM sure there is but anyway off that that's a good amount of hours going thorough the list and being me the member I am

I have no idea what you are saying here due to the lack of punctuation.

I want to give back and help out so I asked bob he said yes so I go through it enough times to know how long it really takes to go through the list of awards each month considering I also run a youtube.

I never want to say how hard someone works unless I do know for sure but unless you're running a multi-thousand subscriber channel, Youtube is not that hard to keep control of.

that's allot and I don't complain I offered the help I enjoy it cus I know I am helping and I now know why bob struggled sometimes to do it ive done it since august till April and IM still doing it no plans to stop I don't ask for a I helped award cus IM just helping

You're fine with not receiving an "I Helped" award because you received this award instead.

neither did I ask for motm

Wouldn't have mattered anyway.


but beyond that I want the forums to know IM first to say IM sure bob would love to give you guys what you want all of you from new to old but that's hard to do really hard to do I respect bob for all his will and try to make this a better place hopefully we can all understand it  ^-^

I'm not doubting bob wants the best for the forums, I simply have a problem with an award that has no actual challenge to getting. An award is given for completed something challenging (For instance a trophy) and since this award is going to the people who spend the most time award on the forums, its basically the "Hey you tried to play and your Mom payed for the season so here's your ribbon" award.

That's why I never told anyone I was doing it, so that people wouldn't purposely try to spam and get on the stats page thinking they'd get an award. It's a one time deal, so nobody new will be getting this award even if they do bump someone off the page. I wanted it to be for members who were active because they enjoy it, not for people who would only be active just to get an award.

That seems very ineffective because there are a lot of active members who are active because they enjoy it, but don't have the time to spend on the forums spamming post like some of the people who received this award. I'm not saying every person should get this award, but seems like an injustice to reward some of the active members and not the others because some have more time to spare than others.

I'm not saying every person should get this award, but seems like an injustice to reward some of the active members and not the others because some have more time to spare than others.

That's true that there's plenty of active members who didn't get the award for whatever reason. But there's not really a better way to do it. The other option would be me going through all the members and judging them individually. ie, Joe gets it, Fred doesn't, Tim gets it, Bill doesn't. Which would only lead to Fred and Bill moaning and complaining about how bob likes Joe and Tim better. At least this way there was already a predetermined goal and whoever got there got there, and has some sort of statistic to back up their reasoning for having the award.

Like I said before this is a one time only award, so people won't need to be competing for it. As far as a reward for other active members, requirements, etc. I don't know. I don't have any particularly amazing ideas at the moment. I'm sure something will come to me sooner or later.

HEY! About a year and a bit ago I was in the top ten posters striking number 8 just underneath Clerical (at the time)! This is outrageous how you forgot my proudest moment xD
 
On a serious note what happens if you get knocked out the top ten? There has been many members in that board who were shoved off and forgotten about. If that would be the case, those knocked off the board now and keep the title would seem unfair for all who have been here before. Just food for thought.

This award only promotes the spamming of the forum with nonsense posts and leaving you computer on 24/7.

I wouldn't say it promotes it, because the awards have already been handed out and no one saw them coming.

It could be seen as a form of positive reinforcement, though, sure.

I don't see why this is worth arguing over, though. These awards don't get us anything. I'm still the same Conmaan I was before I got the shiny badge by my name, and so is everyone else.

I agree. There is still quite a bit of room left down the left hand side where the awards stay. I don't have 8 awards but I can see how people might want all their awards to show but are only limited to showing a few.

As far as i'm aware, it will expand verticallly to show all the awards if needed.

The only way to know for sure is to see a member with 9 or more awards on there profile. Show me one.

It's limited to 8 right now, it can be changed easily to allocate more spots as needed.

I knocked it up to 10. So I guess what few people it has an effect on should be very excited that their 1 year award isn't getting bumped off the list /heidy

That's one of those wacky things I do where I make mistakes on purpose just to see if anybody notices. It's definitely not a typo.

Is it just me or does the donor award appear smaller than the rest of the awards displayed on the left hand side? I was looking at Trubs awards since he is decked out with 9 of them, but the donor award appears a lot smaller than the rest of them.

Anyway that could be fixed at all? Just wondering.

I always manage to find those things that you see if no one notices. Maybe try harder ;)

Haven't we already been through this? You must be seeing a cached version of the image.

I'm assuming that all award images are created from the same 70x28 template. They're all identical sizes.

I refreshed the page a few times and it was still appearing smaller than the rest. So I closed the entire internet down, reloaded the forums and it fixed itself.

Sorry about that Fue  ::)

4 year awards are now available for anyone meeting the requirements.

4 years since you registered and 1,000 posts.

And since I know I'll have something along the lines of "I've been here 4 years but I only have 992 posts, can I have the award anyways?" being messaged to me a bunch of times..... The answer is no. Post more.
