Awards Update Live

Patch Notes · Jun 12, 2008
The Awards update is now live, allowing you to create your own Awards with their own icons!



Create Your Own Awards
You can now create your own Awards to hand out to members. Along with the name and description, you can choose to use one of our default award icons or upload your own.

Change Existing Awards
Along with creating your own awards you can change any of the existing awards

Awards Menu Item
The Awards section has been moved out from a tab under the members section and into its own page, still available at /awards. A menu item for "Awards" is added in the Navigation tab of your Site Admin now which you can enable.

Improved Layout
The awards list page has been modified to look more like a list of awards, and each award now has a show page, that will list all the previous winners, shown below:

Is it possible now to give one and same award to several people at once? I'd like to give, for example, the "Participation" reward to several people but in the past it was not possible as the award could go only to one person, which was a bad limit.

Hi Whailor,

We designed the award system so that each award only has one winner, and each member can only have one award at a time.

Allowing an award to have multiple winners at the same time would not fit well with our current design, but perhaps with a future update we can add a "team award" or so that allows multiple winners (I made a note for this in our issue tracker).

Another nice addition to the website!!! Thanks! -Hides

This is a nice feature, but something we'd like to do with it and can't with how it is now... is to set it up so that as people obtain certain levels, or completion points in the game they receive the award and thus it would be something visible on their profile and maybe their avatar or signature to show their status.

Hi Lelah,

We actually have a new feature planned which will work very similar to this; we plan to add achievements, which would work similarly to wow achievements, but will be customizable for the site; so you can set an achievement such as "made 10 forum posts", and call it "post masta", and anyone in your guild who has made at least 10 forum posts will automatically earn it. =)

Any progress on this? I would love something like this too. :)

Would LOVE to be able to give multiple folks the same award. This ability alone would make me purchase a paid plan.

Any progress on allowing multiple winners? If this has happened, I'll seriously consider a paid plan.

Definitely would love to have multiple award winners. This should be a great feature for the forums.

Any change coming to allow multiple users to awards and is the achievement system in place?

I was thinking the same thing on the multiple users on same award. It could be beneficial for raid guilds, roleplay guilds and such, so please change it to multiple as its been 7 years now since implementation of the awards feature

Also waiting for this to happen.
Multi-users awards/achievement & forum post count titles.

I'm keeping fingers crossed that it will be in this month's update! pls
If it's premium only, i will buy it just for that.
