Not really. They're simular, but that was unintentional since I was ignoring you. You want something like Live with a seperate page per user. I'm suggesting a single thread with just archived results from each tournament/hunt. Who won, who ran, and whatever other ribbons there are for the hunt/tournie. Each hunt/tournie gets it's own post would be the ideal way, with it locked and stickied to keep people from spamming it.

Edited; and yes - similar solutions to different problems. Per user in a single thread is unreasonable though - the growth will be enormous. Per event is more reasonable.

Nope, I was going for a single thread as well. basically one post per user where he updates his own info (hence the "no crap" posting.)

Keep it on subject folks. But, in answer to that ... you have a bio you can post your achievements in and link to. A records thread has been started for the tournaments that will encompass both a separate posting for each result and an overall coverage of tournament results.

For the matrix champion banner... Instead of champion, how about like a gold star in the right corner/side.

Other side(my fault, reversed left/right again), but Yeah. Champion covered a lot of the image.

Thinking about it... since people were complaining about the bronze before, what about just using gold bars? 1 for 3rd, 2 for 2nd, and 3 for 1st, or military rank...

I like those. I like the other rank banners too. I'm more or less just thinking and typing. Dangerous mix.

Thanks for the work you're putting into this stuff. You didn't have to and it is apriciated.

And points to Mogwai on the WIN - pointing out we have a BIO section we can control for putting these if there is not signature space.

These are indeed good.

We're never likely to get pics in our bio's, way too much work for the mods as we would have to 'ok' every pic before it could be shown, and that sounds like way too much hard work.

As for the debate about keeping the award ribbons a uniform size; there's no reason they cant be any shape at all, but for those planning to win a bunch of them, standardising the max dimensions would make it easier when building sigs.

Ribbons for tournies (taking part in combat basically... I think that's what ribbons are for in the military)

How about medals for achievements, like 100% strafe, 1 hit Kill, stuff like that?

OHK are pretty much impossible unless they are 100% strafes, but yeah aslong as it's an actual acheivment rather than something fairly mundane.

As far as I know though, OHKs are harder to get. I only ever got 1, but I had about a half dozen or so 100% strafes before I stopped counting/keeping track.

you'd need fusion cannon (or get very very very lucky with an energo-sword, particle beam cannon,or the RPMS) with 10 str, a 0end target with no armour to acheive a OHK at present, without a 100% strafe

I understand that. But what I'm saying is once you have the stats, you can pretty much 100% strafe in any mission, especially when outnumbered. OHK with 100% strafe can only be done in the arena as far as I know, and is less likely to occur.

**EDIT**

Medals are given for many things, not just combat. There is the Army Achievement Medal, Good Conduct, Serving in various theaters, Emergency Service and many others that aren't directly combat related.

Actually most ribbons are medals, the medals themselves are actually only worn for certain formal functions. The ribbons stand in their place when just worn on Dress Greens/Blues for other functions. The ribbon is usually the colors of the medals "ribbon" that holds the medal.

For Example:

Image National Defense Service Medal

Image National Defense Service Ribbon

Notice the colors. The ribbon is worn when the medal is not.
