Sort of toying around with something new here on RC. The idea is a user award system. Awards show up next to the users name when they post. This is one I can manually give out. I'm going to keep these extremely limited for only the most worthy. It might take a good thread, a good deed or something else that contributes to the forum to earn one of these. This is the top repped badge. It is based on the user with the most positive reputation in the last 7 days. It is automatically calculated and will change hands on it's own. (I am excluded since my rep is not accurate) This is the user who has created the most threads in the last 7 days This is the user who has replied the most in the last 7 days The newest user to register on the forum - "n00b" badge The first poster of the day (AST timezone) ... could also be the last poster of the day I suppose. That's it for now. The graphics are subject to change. Any other badge ideas? Your thoughts? edit: if you hover over a badge you get an explanation for the badge.
