    Whatever you do, Scotty, don't let the passengers know! It would be sheer panic and there won't be enough life pods to go round.

    Just to bolster Moose's sentiment, the current widget we use to make the medals function sits behind the Admin CP.

    When the owner shows up again, I wonder if there is any other choice that could be investigated with respect to the software bundle that makes the dynamic work - an option that is accessible to the standard moderator team.

    and to be clar this isnt about actual making the medal graphics - with twenty years photoshop/illustrator experience i could do that in my sleep... the issue is to do with loading them onto the system

    Just to let people know this is hopefully sorted... the observant will have noticed that my name has turned a fetching shade of red, which doesn't match my antlers as well as moderator orange :D I now have access to create and award medals, and i will be looking after this going forward (please be patient with any delay on nov 30th as it'll be my first time )

    One change is that to keep things simple we will no longer be awarding bronze for the first win, silver for the second, and gold thereafter... this wasn't a well understood system in any case since the natural but wrong assumption is that bronze is for third place, silver for second place etc. Going forward we will be awarding gold for every win

    This calls for a bit of Spandau Ballet.

    All Hail!

    But seriously, I'm glad you managed to get that admin issue sorted. That and the expanded team are both good signs.

    I can run, but I can't hide from that evil weed.

    If it helps, I share your opinion on it.
