New CDO Medals and more Medal TiersBloodbeard 03-13-2015

New Medals

Hello fellow Dawi Zharr.

One of the coolest features of our community is the medal system. For some members help medals motivate and drive the hobby work. For others they are held in high honour and respect, a sign of accomplishment like winning the Golden Hat. Lastly some medals are given by the staff to members helping out the community with our Wiki and other CDO projects.

Today we add more tiers to some of the old medals. We have some active old members around, always entering competitions and always expanding their already impressive forces. These medals are for you guys - Gold is not the top!



New Tiers
Gallery Medal
Introduced is the Platinum Medal for 20 picture uploads, Diamond for 25 picture uploads and the Blackshard Medal for a wooping 30 picture uploads!
Back in 2014 the gallery section was updated, galleries were changed aroud and renamed. The medal criteria was updated - but the essence remaned the same. If trying to claim something higher than gold, please recount your contributions, get the right count down.

Quote:
The Image Gallery medal (the camera) comes in three varieties and shall possibly contain a fourth in the future. Gold, Silver and Bronze again. To get  the Bronze, one must post 5 units within the Image Gallery / Specialist Games and Misscellany Gallery section of the forum. Silver is 10 and Gold is 15. Platinum is 20, Diamond is 25 and the ultimate Blackshard medal is given for 30! Any Chaos Dwarf -, Hobgoblin -, Bull Centaur -, or slave unit counts for this as long as it is a new unit. All your combined characters counts once, every type of warmachine counts only once each, combines emissaries count once, all complete specialst game teams counts once pr game (complete mordheim team, man-o-war fleet etc). All other unit types, only count once, no matter how many different units of it you post, but we still encourage people to do so.




Veterans Medal
If you've entered 15 Artisan's or Golden Hat you get the gold. Now you can get Platinum, Diamond and Blackshard as well.





New Medals
Diplomat Medal
2014 saw the launch of The Great Emissary Exchange a truly great initiatve. A lot of CDO members have already joined, converted and painting models and send them all over the world. Little pieces of hobby being shared between members. A feat like this needs to be shown to the world. So we introduce the Diplomats Medal.

Quote:
The Diplomat Medal is awarded for participating in The Great Emissary Project. Bronze is for 5 emissaries, silver for 10 and gold for 15. The Darklands are a dangerous place and many get lost there. In order to count, emissaries must be send out and make it to their destination. Post your emissaries in this gallery.




Major Prize Sponsor
For some of our competitions CDO members have selflessly donated miniature prizes for the winners or to be given a random entry. All these prizes are greatly appreciated - thank you. Yet the contributions of some members are truly great and very large. This medal will be awarded to members who has sponsored prizes in a major way.

Quote:
The Major Prize Sponsor medal is awarded for donating chaos dwarf related miniature prizes for the CDO compititions (GH, AC, SC). There's no set 'minimum' required to receive the medal. The Staff will determine if a member is to be awarded the sponsor medal based on: number of prizes or times donated, prize size, value, rarerity, general usability and method of donation.

The staff can at any point decline a prize donation on account of having too many in stock (or ask that the donation be made for a later competition) or if considered rubish. Though any heart felt donation will always be appreciated. All sponsors will alway get mention in List of Competition Prize Sponsors thread.

Prize donation must reach their intended target in order to be considered as donated.

Competition Thread.

Bloodbeard as Admin
Due to the Admins being very busy at the moment and for the foreseeable future, I have been given the honour to work as an Admin. I need to figure out the whole Admin Control Panel. Should be able to help with basic user problems.

RE: New CDO Medals and more Medal TiersBloodbeard 04-21-2015

I've updated the new medals, both Major Prize Sponsor and the Diplomat Medals. HAd made them 34*34 pixels originally, which meant the wasn't round when uploaded (as our medals are 32*32).

I've also updated the colours on the Diplomat Medals to better fit our other medals - especially the bronze colour was off before.

All that has been rewarded the medals - have already been awarded the updated ones.
