I remember an old forum I used to go to a few years back had a whole "veteran" system for people who'd been around for ages. That had its drawbacks but also its benefits, but IMO a system where only people who've been around for over a year would be eligible for a little reward wouldn't be objectionable at all, at least as far as I can see. :o

Such as what, exactly?
I haven't implemented any new ones, nor has anyone sent me PMs regarding nominating any people.

Way I see it, someone (other than yourself) should send a mod a PM regarding nomination of someone, or it should be post-count based (for some particular ones).
I haven't cemented the process yet, haha. ^_^;

Jorge, how are you making those? Got a template? I could pump out a few myself, based on ideas thrown out here and a few of my own.

Actually yes, now that you mention it.

The 'large' sized award (the one that shows up when you click on the awards an user has), is a 128x24 rectangle, like this:



On this area, you insert one of the four colored frames (courtesy of Aria of Sorrow's Soul Colors) making sure it is aligned with the right side:



On the left side of the large award, aligned on the left, super-impose a 24x24 graphic (or smaller).  The largest graphic (24x24) will be super-imposed over the award frame.  This is OK.

On the inside of the frame, you insert white text.  The font is Tahoma, Size 7.  Disable antialiasing on the font, otherwise the mini-text will come out slightly blurry.

For the 'small' awards (the ones that are visible in posts), they have variable sizes, shown below:



I have not yet used the largest-sized award (32x32) for the small awards, so I don't know if that one might end up too big-looking (and because I did not want to over-crop it to fit the larger award).  Usually, the graphic is cropped at the bottom to form a 24x24 square if you're going to use it on the large award frame, like how I did with the NES Zombie and the Retro Gamer award.

Please stick to Castlevania sprites as much as possible.

The finished result looks like this:
<----large award
The little award looks like this:
<---small award (16x32 sprite used for this one)

Use a palettized GIF or an AlphaChannel PNG to achieve the transparency.

Ok, I think I got it down, though for some reason Photoshop keeps making the text size variable. It's odd, but probably due to the cut&paste process.

-  Lurker: Spies on from afar, rarely interacting with the general populace.
-  Town Crier: Updates the forum with many news items, often not even Castlevania related.
- The Pervert: Sneaks in any and all innuendo into threads that he/she can.
- One-Time Show: Not quite a lurker, but posts infrequently and usually only in one area.
- ICVD Denizen: Those that dwell in the corrupted, mirror image of The Dungeon.







I'll make a few more later on.

Heyyyyy those are pretty good!
I don't know how I would implement the "lurker" and "one time show" ones though... I mean, out of the thousands of members this forum has, only like 5% actually post, and the other 95% are either dead or they're One-Time Shows.

I'll put 'em up though and should the opportunity arise, I'll award someone with 'em.

LOL @ the ICVD one.

Your text might be a little weird because it's anti-aliased.

I wouldn't mind making a few myself as well, if that is ok.
