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 worksWe have 3 awards that are based on your registration date: Founder, Veteran, Die-Hard. is for those that registered on the 1st day that the forums were public, April 12 2013 is for those that registered within the first week, April 13-April 20 2013 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 award is self explanatory, previous winners of Miner of the Month get this one.The 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 award is for those who have the robotic avatar in game.The award is given to those who have been on the forums for at least 1 years time + at least 40 posts in the year prior. The 2-5 year awards work in this exact same manner. You must have at least 40 posts within the last year to qualify for the award. For those people who have a period of inactivity, you may only claim one new award at a time. So for example, if you have the 1 year and 2 year awards, and then go inactive for 2 years and then come back to make 40 posts, you'll only be eligible for the 3 year award. Not the 3 and 4 year awards. The award is given for creating 5 or more Total Miner guides that get placed in the guide section of the forums The 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.
