Awards/Medals and How To Request Them
A number of our members may be entitled to awards/medals, but they don't know how to request them. Until we can automate this, you need to request your own awards (the mods also do this for you if see that you are entitled, but it's rather hit or miss).
Here are the basic ones that you can earn rather quickly if you are an active member:
Bronze Blog Award - 25 entries made in your blog
Silver Blog Award - 100 entries made in your blog
Bronze Reputation Award - 100 rep points
Silver Reputation Award - 1000 rep points
How to give rep points - If you like the advice that someone has posted, or liked their post because it provides great information to everyone, then click on the scale symbol (top right of post box) in that post.
Bronze Activity Award - 250 posts
Silver Activity Award - 750 posts
Bronze Gallery Award - 10 pictures uploaded to the members' gallery
Silver Gallery Award - 50 pictures uploaded
Gold Gallery Award - 100 pictures uploaded
How to request - Click on this link to go the the Awards page. Scroll down the page until you find the award you are entitled to. To the right of the award description is a link you can click on to request the award. Note that some awards are only for contests won, like TOTM, so you can not request those types of awards. Enter in your name, the recipient user name (your username), and the reason. For example, in the name box, I would type, "Greg", in the Recipient username, "fins_n_fur", and in the Reason box, "more than 250 posts", if I were claiming the Bronze Activity Award.
Still not sure how to do it? Send me a pm and I'll help!
