here is an idea since most of you know I hosted the Robotic competition. Why not have a robotic host award, because I'm sure not going to be the last host, I think. Another reason for this award is for the hosts that completed the competition and doesn't drop out at last min.
They will earn robotic in most cases. no need for them to earn 2 awards for one action.

I was more talking about the robo award will be robo host just so people find it easier to find who to talk to (This is for new people mostly). If the host is no longer host it will turn in to just robo then.

In this case i don't mind it, while hosting it will say something different, and after the contest it will trade it out for robo one.
I like it. and makes it easier for new people to find out who to PM. not many robo hosts are active though, which can be a problem some times.

Yes that can be a problem thats why I think robo hosts should be on at least once a day to check messages. I mean it only takes a second to log on and give some help to people.


That's why the host should be chosen carefully. There are a lot of people on the forums now that are dedicated to the forum. Should always be handed down to someone with the passion to record because its a big hassle to organize everything.

I see that as more of an award that only the current host would have. This would be done to prevent confusion on who is the current host for a contest and who has been a host.

While the contest is underway the host would have the "Robo Host" award. Once the contest is over he would default to the "Robo" award and the next host would receive the host award. This makes it easier for players to know exactly who to talk to.

Now there could also just be two awards, one for previous hosts and one for current hosts, or there could be a member group similar to Miner of the Month. The current host would be given the Host group while all others would have the award.

Or just give the host award to any and all hosts and let you guys deal with the confusion and be done with it.  ^-^

That's exactly what I was talking about, minus the confusion part.

A contest host award would be pretty convenient, but if not executed well it could add to the confusion. There would have to be an obvious distinction between past and present hosts; if not just make the award temporary. It sounds like the robo-host title that changes to a standard robo award could get the job done. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I realize there definitely should not be a permanent award for hosting. That would only encourage people to do it just to be rewarded.

Yeah, it would only appear while the contest is being hosted, then once it is over it will change to the robotic one as you may/would of earn it.

Wait, is this about the game itself or the forums? I think this may be in the wrong section...

I thought we were on this topic lol. Just checked the OP for this topic and turns out it was a question, and one that was answered long ago.

This topic should now be closed. Any and all discussion about new awards should be posted on the topic Epiik started.
