If you look, there is an ongoing competition for something like that. It's down near the bottom, it's got it's own forum as well.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

Most likely to....

be seen on "Cops"
be leader of his country


Maybe we should keep them all positive, if we do it. We can't have someone win a custom rank for being a spammer

You know, some of those need clarification. Origin has more than just Generals, so would they be best Generals coder, or just overall?

Hey, we should probably add Best HL2 Coder as well, and maybe best RA2 coder? And how would we be able to do a contest like this fairly? Member votes? Or some type of contest judged by someone?

I have no idea. This would probably end up on Detail's shoulders anyway if he accepts, but I would gladly do it if he doesn't want to

[Let it be known (again) that i don't read ever topic.]
You lucky i read this ;)2


It might be too soon to have a forum awards. The forums may seem bussy, but thats only because thay have been very slow in the past. Compaired to some forums this place is very slow (we only have 1 topic running in each forum, at a time).
When GenDev opens, Defcon is released, i spend loads of time working on HLO (list goes on...) the forums should have a huge boost and become like many other forums (2+ topics running in 1 forum, at a time).

Another way of looking at this is to say the forum has 3000 posts, i've made 1000 posts, Daz, Agile & Mastermind have made a 1000 posts, leaving 1000 to the unknown. Thats not many.

The awards would be based on whos the most creative, not 'Craziest Member' (unless it's creative crazy writing).

Give it time.

Yeah, I ran the numbers, and came out with approximately 50 posts per day (assumptions: current post count, Detail's join date as opening). Comparatively, Sleipnir Stuff,

Statistic Value Statistic Value
Number of posts 89216 Posts per day 175.62
Number of topics 4317 Topics per day 8.50
Number of users 511 Users per day 1.01
Board started Wed Apr 10, 2002 11:52 pm Board Up Days 508.00
Database size 57.95 MB Avatar directory size 1.54 MB
Latest User Registered Date Sun Aug 31, 2003 5:21 am Latest User Registered Vladimir
Most Users Ever Online Date Wed May 14, 2003 8:24 am Most Users Ever Online 33
Gzip compression Enabled Disk Usage 376.11 MB

Has those numbers, approximately triple the posts per day, and about 20 times the post total, but also it has been online about 6 times as long (508 days against 71), and has just over 5x the members. This is a fairly active forum, and is still on the upswing. GenDev is just starting to launch new utilities, and I have brought several members in just to beta at GenDev.
