The problem isn't your spelling mistake.

I was hoping it wouldn't come to this...

I am sincerely sorry Voodoo, all I can do is hope the Precinct can forgive my error.

Hey miro, I just wanted to know about the Bronze Medal, you said one gets it after 4 commendations, so I wanted to know, your profile has 2 commendations so how you have a medal? Do not mind pal.

No.
The ones that have 1, 2 or 3 commendations get a bronze medal. I have 2 and that's why I've got a bronze medal. You see?
The ones that have 4 or 5 commendations get a silver medal. This medal is also colored with blue.
And the ones with 6 or 6+ commendation go with gold medal. Also, this medal is colored as well with red.

Are you sure it's 1, 2 and 3, not just 2 and 3? I've had one and I don't have a medal of any kind.

Getting a commendation automatically means a medal. Or a Karma star if we talk about the times before October 2007.
I think you're confusing a Verbal Commendation with a Commendation . wink.gif

What about cidamelo though? She has 7 awards but her medal is still bronze. Is it because they all came from the same year awards ceremony?

By the way, I noticed you mentioned gamesguru's newsletter in "the list". I have that issue if you want it. Click here.

All the awards she won were added to her member log as a single commendation entry. If all awards were added as individual commendation entries, she'd have a gold medal.

Do mods and admins take Verbal Warnings into consideration when thinking about giving a Verbal Commendation?

I think a verbal commendation is for a specific post whereas a commendation is for an overall act. I would say they would consider all of your logs, but maybe more so if considering a commendation.

Yes and no. It varies by moderator, but generally I'd say if you have a few warnings for things here and there and do something useful, you're probably likely to get a verbal commendation for it. If you've got numerous warnings and are a constant pain in the ass for staff, it will probably be a while before you can expect to get a verbal commendation.

Alright, now to see which category I fall into, and think of something very useful to do.


By the way, very nice work around the forums Ryan, don't let that V section get you down. wink.gif

I actually believe it's the opposite. I think moderators give out Verbal Commendations for such things as reporting topics and helping them keep the forum clean, while Commendations are awarded for certain posts.

So are medals awarded for commendation posts? I have seen warlord. awarded with a commendation but why hasn't sivispacem not got one. I would try my best to get a medal too. Another question. Does reporting directly directly done to a mod through PM or you just report the post and if it gets to a certain staff a lot of times he commemnds you?

Reporting multiple posts gets you a commendation or Verbal commendation. And they have to be "useful" reports. I reported dozens of "useful" reports and never gotten a verbal commendation. I really don't expect to get one or report posts just to get them.

Also, report the post, many mods have dozens of PMs to go through and don't have the time to see your PM, reporting the post makes it easier. Whenever you see an ignorant post that breaks the rules, the correct thing to do is not reply to it, just report it. Makes it easier for mods.

Also, medals are awarded for people with multiple commendations, not "Verbal" commendations, so it's very difficult to get medals from reporting posts, maybe make a topic that mods really like and you can get a commendation for a nice contribution to the forum. Hope this helped! icon14.gif

Let me put simply this for everyone based on my past experience as a member and present experience as staff. . Don't go around the forums expecting to get commendations for things you do. There are no set guidelines that if a topic is helpful you'll receive a commendation for it, or if you report X amount of topics you'll get a commendation for it. It's all moderator discretion. If they're feeling generous that day, you might get some green, you might not.

Verbal commendations for commendations can be given out for the same things. Generally verbal commendations are given out first, and then eventually the user will be awarded with a commendation for their continued efforts.

^This is what I meant to say, but looks like Ryan stated everything you need to know about commendations. Also, don't report as many posts as you can just to get a medal. You can waste the mods time by doing this, so make sure all the posts you report are worth the moderator's precious time.
