Re: One Year Awards

Great suggestions - I like Euan's own about the six months in particular.

Also, new One Year Awards coming soon...

Euan, how difficult would it be to add a "last post date" to the user list? That would be immensely helpful for sorting out these things.

Or, at least, an alphabetical list with the last post date. Only way I can see to get that info is to check each profile individually. sad

Ouch, that's a totally unfair amount of work for you to have to do, Jason. I was thinking a "Last log in" column would be great generally, especially for purposes like these.

We could work a similar thing to how the UK determines if you pay tax - presence for more than six months in the year = pay up. So if you're here for more than half the year, well, you were here for the purposes of a year of service.

That would mean I could still get my two year service stars.  big_smile

Re: One Year Awards

There's fields in the database for the last time a user posted, and the last time they signed in. Which would we prefer?

Re: One Year Awards

Can we display both? They're both useful.

Re: One Year Awards

Actually, what would be BEST would be a field for "Started membership". This field would initially be set to whenever someone joins, but if they don't post within 6 months (or whatever time we set AWOL to, if it is currently defined), the field would get reset (to empty, or some other null value). Then, if they re-post, the field gets updated with that datestamp.

Of course, if we did this, then we could just have a little something behind the scenes which simply displays the appropriate badge based on current date - membership start date. I have some code that will do this, just haven't gotten around to plugging it in.

Thoughts for the future! For now, displaying those would work so I could (more) easily distinguish who gets what award when.

Re: One Year Awards

That sounds good too, but I think having a thing showing when someone last logged in would still be good.

Congrats on a year, Osprey!

It also reminds me that the 3 years are coming up. Time for a three year badge!

8th August, yup. Phoenix's birthday smile

Re: One Year Awards

*wiggles excitedly in anticipation of 3 year badge*

Oddly enough....that's how long I have been roleplaying!

Re: One Year Awards

If the badges are a day late it's okay, my birthday is the 9th of August and I'll happily attach mine to my sig that day if it comes to it.  big_smile

Re: One Year Awards

Thanks. I'll wait until 8 August to add that then. Have you managed to do any of the other badges listed on the Wiki?

Oh, I'll have to go take a look. I have a few. I also need to get the Awards graphics uploaded so the winners can add them to their sigs if they wish.

What I'd REALLY like is to get our badging system working, but that's been on the back burner for a while now.

Any chance of putting it on the middle burner? wink

Re: One Year Awards

I can move it to the top of the list after my sim duties, which I am behind on after being out this last weekend (and having something come up yesterday so I wasn't able to get online).

Re: One Year Awards

Badges presently are presently added by the users themselves. Not a perfect system, I know, but that's what we have currently. Does anyone have the link for the single star?

Re: One Year Awards

I haven't found it anywhere, just two and three year links. An idea... Maybe all should be in a sticky or closed thread for easy access? Unless someone wants to keep up with membership dates and on the links as needed...
