Hello Sandswept Legion!
We've implemented a really nifty "Achievables" system. It's essentially a way for every one to show off their accomplishments and so on. Achievables are medals, given out by us, for exceptional and awesome behavior. The criteria for achievables is very loose, so we welcome suggestions.

Suggest Achievables! They can be funny, silly, serious, or otherwise awesome. Post 'em here, preferably with a description of what this icon would look like.

This format, please. Here's an example.

Quote:
Achievable Name:
The Awesome Award

Achievable Description:
This user has been awesome! Awarded for being so awesome.

Awardable more than once:
(if yes, how many times? Anywhere from 1 to Infinite)

Achievable Icon:
This icon would be a ninja riding a rocket while battling a dinosaur. (Ok, that might be a little complex...)


Post away and we'll be adding the most creative/interesting/awesome ones! The Image achievable will be awarded to users' whose achievable suggestion is accepted by Sandswept!

Send 10 Private Messages

Complain about release dates.

Decode MAESG (or whatever it was).

Well, I think it'd be nice to have some for posting, just so people who arent like, super epic can at least get something with time, such as:

Achievable Name:
Not so noob anymore


Achievable Description:
Get 50 posts

Awardable more than once:
once

Achievable Icon:
I dunno, not a graphic artist (/creativity cop-out)

And there would of course be different names for the following increments such as 100, 300, 500, 1000, etc.

Do we receive a message from you with each achievable?

Member titles take care of this. Did I forget to mention that?

I think Vokes is about to pop over into a new title with just a couple more posts. (Now we wait for him to spam...)

We've added a few of these ideas. Those who submitted them and got accepted know who you are. You'll see the new ones very soon. (Well, some of them!) All the icons are getting cleaned up and so forth as well.

Prepare for greatness. Thanks for your awesome submissions. Keep them coming.

Time to spam it up!

Ha ha ha! Jokes aside, you're saying that member titles can be altered not only through administrator powers, but also through post count and activity?

Edit: I think it can. ; D
