I'm testing out a new feature here at AC: The Member Awards.

In your "Author" info (at the left side of your posts) there are now 2 new items: One, a little icon that currently looks sorta like a chess pawn (likely to change because frankly it doesn't really look all that much like a chess pawn to me, but hey...). That is a quick link to see that person's "Awards". And the second is (in theory) your "Favorite" Award.

You all should have the "freebie" award, which is the Fluffy Bunny ("I Survived Fluffy Bunnyhood at AC")--if you're missing it, let me know (especially new users--I may not notice right away that you don't have it, so by all means PM me and let me know! Those of you who've been here a while, I *think* I got you all now, but I did accidentally miss a few the first time I tried to set it...)

The second award is the Binog! (or the "I won at Binog, aka Bingo" Award) award. Once again, I *think* I got everyone who has won a round, but if I missed you, please PM me and let me know.

You can change the order of your awards by going to your Profile and clicking the "Award" link. There you can set your "Favorite" Award--which will be the first one that is visible on your "Author" info. (Honestly not sure how it'll be once there's more than 2 available awards, whether you can set the order more than just choosing the first one or not...)

More awards will be coming soon.

If you have an idea for an Award you'd like to see, either leave a message here, or PM me.

Good one. And Featured Member, perhaps.

I also would like to see a "Completed Mare's Challenge of the Month" Award--you should probably pick out the icon for that one.  Grin

Yes. For the Award Page, it can be as large as you want (though I'd ask that we try to keep 'em to "Avatar" size or smaller...lol), but the smaller one that shows in the Author page should be emoticon-sized (though can be one of the slightly oversized ones...)

I'd be wary of people trying to earn that award if it existed though shifty

Note: There's now an "I Completed Mare's Challenge of the Month" Award. I tried to catch everyone who has done so, but once again if I missed you, please let me know!

This is so cool!!  Great idea!

So for the Challenge of the Month, is that only displayed for that month, and you start fresh without one each month?

Maybe once the Felix Awards winners are announced, there could be a "Felix Award Winner" one.  Or something tied to The Tens on the site... like "I'm in The Tens" LOL.
