    That's not doable really though, as I think they're trying to make it so it's simple enough to parse the boxes serverside =P

    Also, woo, I have one.

    Maybe a (2) could be added to mark that? I dunno, isn't a single notice okay?

    Link to a list then :colbert:

    Well, I guess that putting the list in the wiki page would be easier.

    EDIT: ...weirdest typo ever :psyduck:

    Hold up, I knew that icon looked familiar - It's the System Preferences Icon in OSX Leopard :P
    May I suggest something a bit more original?
    Excellent idea nonetheless, but I can see it going the way of the emeralds that we used to have for post count =/ Sorry to put a downer on it.

    ...but that would be good, right?

    I mean, more people wanting the "Achievements" so more people donating maybe? :P

    Welp, this.
    It's a modified version from the iPhone background, but yes. I wanted something shiny and there it was, ready to be slapped with a border.

    As far as the old post emeralds/other past achievements thing goes, you need to realize that:

    - I will not be rewarding people for quantity, and certainly not for post count
    - I will not tolerate people whining for achievements (I'll just make sure you never get any)
    - I'm rewarding concrete things that can be pointed to

    Yeah, I was wondering about that, sitting here going "what the fuck are they all talking about?"


    Welp, I'm never getting one. But hey, you never know. Maybe my scanning of the English master system manual is worthy.

    I hope you don't take this as me whining for an achievement.

    Fair enough, and I suppose it does encourage donation, which had completely slipped my mind. Nevertheless I think the community's a whole lot more mature in general from before, and the amount of whining will probably be a lot less than I initially thought.
    Thanks for clearing that up, it seems like a much more beneficial reward system, being based on things that actually help the community on a whole

    If there's one for a massive influx of useful wiki updates, I think MainMemory should get it. I looked at the wiki history for everything sadx related and he's been a busy bee. Alot more than I have, that's for sure =P

    I think being in the Top 50 contributors for all time is enough reward.

    Edit: New Page.

    This isn't the first time I've received a trophy for my awesome tool...

    (arrested and severely beaten by pun police)

    Seriously, though, this is a pretty sweet idea.

    Feels like the community has turned into a xbox game :P

    But yeah, actually taking your time to do the research and contact people to get material released in which ever form it is, should also be er, "rewarded" with this system, it's another kind of community contribution.

    And I'd also suggest wiki achievements but I guess that goes without saying.

    Honestly, with a decent afternoon's work you can get into the Top 50 atm - however, with Achievements involved this may well become more difficult - as it should be, really. =P Not to play down what you've done at all, mind - you've done some amazing work on SA:DX of late.

    I actually just noticed my shiny badge. Kind of a fun and interesting idea for the community. Unfortunately I can't really think of anything good for an achievement that hasn't been said or isn't already in place.

    I was informed by Jay about this achievements system. A nice way to stroke my ego a fair bit methinks. :3

    But yeah, in all seriousness, I'm glad I'm appreciated for the small contribution I've made to the community. It makes me feel a bit more wanted.
