How bout we keep this topic, on topic, as opposed to making it a fun house joke session?
You are a joke session. And who says I am not being serious?

New award added. The Uploader award. This one goes to the people who have contributed the most to the download section. We have 4 people as our initial inductees: GK, XBLToothpik, Jesse, and Spark. This takes into account not just download numbers, or star ratings as you'd think, but a variety of other factors of which I assigned a numerical value to and these are your four people who scored the highest in the end. So things like willingness to help other members having issues with their mod, and various other things help to score points here.

And before anybody asks.... no, I'm not telling you any more than that. Because I don't want people trying to artificially manipulate it to score awards, and you can't manipulate what you don't know.

I'll go through once a month or so and recalculate the scores and add the award to anyone who makes their way into the rankings. Not to worry though, as once you have the award you keep it, even if somebody else comes along and bumps you down the rankings. So if you want this award, the trick here is to share more of your work.

5 year awards are up now. I've removed the minimum post count requirement for the year awards but there's a minimum activity requirement as it would have had to jump up to like 1300 or 1400 for the 5 year, which is getting a bit out of hand. So how it works now is 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. You'll become eligible for the 4 year award once 365 days have passed since you earned the last years award, assuming you've kept up with the minimum activity requirement.

So if you're missing an award due to not having the minimum post count, go do a quick check of your posts and see if you've met the 40 in the past year requirement.

Yeah. Trub told me not to give it to you. He thought it would be funny or something. It's his fault.

Good thing I kept up with it the past 4 years. ;) I wonder if I've made that requirement yet.  ::)
