    I'm looking for trophy suggestions. Here's what I have so far

    http://videogameinfo.net/forums/help/trophies

    Once I get a list of trophies I'm good with, I'll go about replacing the old user ranks with new user ranks, eg. people will become what were previously called "badgeholders" and get access to special features on the site like colored text, custom user title, etc. through use of trophy points rather than the simple "500 post" mark. Name suggestions are helpful as well. Hopefully someone can come up with names more creative than the simple "500 post" and "1,000 post" trophies I came up with.

    "User has associated their forum account with Google Plus, Twitter, or Facebook."

    How do you even do that?

    The usual trophies for the amount of posts and likes, first of all.

    Here's some ones I thought of

    Threads:

    -(insert title here)
    Post a thread that receives over (x) replies.

    -(insert title here)
    Participate in a thread that has over (x) replies.

    -Gravedigger
    Post in a thread that has not been replied to in (x) (weeks/months)

    Followers:

    -(insert title here)
    Have (x) people follow you.

    -(insert title here)
    Follow over (x) people.


    Other stuff I came up with:

    -Notable!
    Be in the list of "Notable Members"

    -The Flaws of Deaggerism
    Prove Deagger wrong.

    -Unlawful
    Have your content on this site deleted by staff (x) times. (Maybe this could take away points)

    -5 Day Milestone
    User has visited the forums 5 days in a row.

    -10 Day Milestone
    User has visited the forums 10 days in a row.

    (More milestones if needed)

    -Happy Birthday!
    User has visited the site on their birthday (Birthdate must be in profile) (Maybe remove the ability for users to change their birthdate so this wouldn't be abused)

    -New Year, New Beginning
    User has been logged in at midnight, January 1st

    Sorry about the lack of titles, and if the titles were bad :l

    Good catch. I actually hadn't put that feature in yet. Putting in your Twitter username is something that was carried over from vB3 and isn't actually the association that'll earn a user the trophy. I'll probably add it sometime in the next few days.


    That's what the public awareness trophy is for.


    I'm not really sure why I understand why participating in a thread that already has a lot of replies should get someone bonus points when compared to posting in a thread with not all that many replies. It'd just make the game threads like the "you're banned" game even more filled with useless posts.

    I don't really feel this is something people should be rewarded or punished for. If they feel the thread should come back, it should be on its own merits. Rewarding people for it would just encourage people to bump up old threads for the sake of getting the award when there were better new threads out there, and the opposite would happen if I punished them for it.


    I probably wouldn't want a large award for following people since there isn't much effort involved in that and it'd encourage following just for the sake of the award, but I suppose I could add an award for having followers.

    Not out of the question but I'm leaning against it considering how often it changes and considering how easy it is to get on the "likes" or the "points" list.

    ....

    Maybe

    Not bad ideas, the problem is implementing them. I don't think Xenforo even keeps a record of everytime a user logs in, just their most recent login.

    maybe

    I don't really see the point of favoring one holiday over the other, and if it were for every holiday it'd make for too many easy points. Birthday is probably the most I'd want.



    C'mon, am I that bad Seth? I wasn't aware that I had to be "dealt with". :grumpy:

    Yeah, and when it's implemented you can get it for making me leave in disappointment if that passes. :^)

    According to Syk, Xenforo doesn't keep track of a user's logins.

    I don't think anyone has gotten more than 5 l likes on any one post, so that might be a tad unrealistic. I also think that the early bird and night owl thing would be too easy plus there's the login issue as veng mentioned, but thanks for the suggestions. Just keep brainstorming.

    It's kind of up to the person if they want to leave or not. Users shouldn't have to walk on eggshells and do stuff that isn't specified anywhere in the rules because somebody else might decide to leave.

    Streaming one seems too easy imo and it'd just encourage people to advertise their streams. As far as reporting goes, anyone can file a report. Maybe a negative trophy for having a deleted message though. Fun times seems good but it was what I was already considering.


    This is actually a good idea, I just don't know of a good way to actually count chatbox messages. I could probably figure something out though.

    :facepalm:

    I'm adding these awards, probably later today but at the latest by Wednesday. If someone can come up with better names let me know. I'm also considering an award for a person who "wins" a certain amount of game nights, it's just that a lot of the games we play go on several rounds and don't have a clearly defined "winner".

    Good times:
    RSVP "Yes" or "Maybe" and participate in a game night. - 1 point

    Fun times:
    RSVP "Yes" or "Maybe" and participate in five game nights. - 5 points

    Great times:
    RSVP "Yes" or "Maybe" and participate in 15 game nights - 10 points.

    Reliable:
    RSVP "Yes" or "Maybe" and attend 6 game nights in a row. If something unusual comes up and you know you won't be able to attend, you can RVSP "No" for one or two weeks without "breaking your chain". eg. If you attend 3 weeks with a yes RSVP, then give a "No" RSVP and don't attend, then attend an additional 3 weeks with a "Yes" RSVP you'll still qualify. 10 points

    Informal- Create a walkthrough on the forum that is a minimum of 1,000 words. - 10 points

    Note: I'll count the people who have attended without an RVSP for the first three weeks since they weren't aware of requirements if they specifically request it but from now on they'll need to RVSP.
