Standing and Medals

Post by DukeWu on Wed Jun 01, 2016 10:13 pm

Iain Davis recommended we start a medals system, so starting today there will be two new features for members: Standing and Medals. These will take effect only to those members who've had the career tab activated. This happens when one drops below 200 standing, or earns a medal.

Standing will be a bar that begins at 200, and can be reduced by actions considered harmful and recharged by actions considered good. If you reach 0 standing, you're banned. Standing is changed at the admin's discretion. Consider it your life bar.

Medals are earned for right action. Pictures of each don't exist, but if a talented artist exists among you, this would be appreciated. Seven medals will be current as of this post, and multiple of the same medals can be handed out. Medals are handed out for the following deeds:


Davis Commendation of Excellence: Handed out directly by Iain Davis, for services he considers worthy of the medal.

Nox Gladii Campaign Star: Successfully participate in a completed Nox Gladii campaign.

Richard B. Spencer Cross: Achieve success outside of the Ultras, in service to the Alt Right cause.

Ultras Ribbon of Activity: Redeem 1000 denarii.

Vivian James Ribbon of Merit: Have participated to a noteworthy degree during the GamerGate controversy of 2014-2015.

Williams Commendation of Excellence: Like the Davis Commendation, but Peter Williams hands this out instead.

Wu Commendation of Excellence: Ditto, but with Kevin Wu.

Check this thread for inaugurations, if interested.

I like the idea.  Good way for people to get involved and just plain fun.

Toying with paint.net today.

EDIT: with slightly better border for the central piece.

Well that's it exactly. Marketers are more and more turning to "Gameification" to inspire usage of their apps. It costs nothing and keeps engagement high for important stuff.

Questions:

Under the career tab...what is the image management for?

Is it like our own internal archive or something you all need?

It looks to be some internal archive used as a bit of extra coding. I butchered apart the RPG Character sheet module to create the career sheet, so it might be a leftover?

I'm about as good at computer stuff as to be able to achieve my goals, but not to make it look pretty. Work in progress, though, I'll see what I can do. Could be an image field for the avatar, or perhaps rank image (i.e my consul or your gladiatore)

Cool cool.

Also, for the medals. I like the idea of the crosses being medals. You can probably put some text along with it so people know what it is and edit your OP to show the different kinds once you get to it.

I tried with paint.net but I am still an amateur at best. At least in the mean time this will give you a good solution.

Lastly, ever thought of using ancient coins as medals?

Go ahead. As a matter of fact. Here is a base copy template.

Just throwing out design ideas and see if anything sticks.

Here is one for the commendation medal idea.

John of Austria and Cthulhu will be receiving the first two Wu Commendations of Excellence for their long-term contributions to the group.

Additionally, after advertisers have responded successfully to our emails, participants in that campaign will receive the appropriate Campaign Star.

Thanks for the recognition.

I have a couple ideas on the medal/awards system:

1. The community is small right now, but it will grow. You may want to create a page under archives that is for "nominations" where members of the community can recommend persons for an award. Then they are approved by each appointed admin/triumvir as needed for whichever type of award. This will save the heartache down the road once things start picking up and you find yourself unable to keep track of everyones activity.

2. Not sure how you would incorporate the art for medals/coins/ribbons underneath the avatars, but it might elongate the forum comments - which might get old after awhile. So in order to handle this, why not have a color coded bar or mini symbols like the based Moffs from the Galactic Empire under each Avatar?



Simple, elegant and it keeps the clutter down on the left-hand side of the page to keep the forum comments from getting to big to scroll through.

Just thought I would give you my opinion and observation on the matter. I like this system, but inevitably it will become complex and you may find yourself busy from juggling all these projects.

Hope this opinion is found useful.

I agree with Krump's idea for medals, and we could expand into other lore territories as well, if need be.

1. This can easily be done, I'll create a topic in Archives and people can comment there.

2. As for that, I have literally no idea how to do this as of this comment. When I get the time and energy, I'll fiddle around in the admin panel and see what I can do to make that a reality.
