Introduction | Trophies | Annual Medals | Other Medals | Contest Ribbons

You may have noticed that some members have a box beneath their signature, containing a series of trophies, medals and ribbons. These are Official Awards, which are given as prizes to those who achieve highly within certain areas of the forum, and also to those who make outstanding contributions to the community. These awards are divided into five basic categories:

  • Special Contributions trophies - The highest level of award, given out to those who contribute measurably to the community in specific areas, beyond simply being active.
  • Forum Contributions trophies - The second-highest level of award, given out to those who make outstanding contributions within a particular forum.
  • Staff trophies - Given out to those who serve as staff, either on The Coffee House or on an associated forum.
  • Contest Ribbons - Awarded by contest leaders for outstanding performances in their contests, above and beyond what is normally required to win.
  • Medals - Awarded for miscellaneous achievements not covered by the above categories. These include the annual "Member of the Year" and "Newcomer of the Year" awards voted on by the member base.

For more information on the sub-categories within each of these categories, see this topic.
