There are a number of different award and medals that you can be awarded here at Aquatic Community.

There are four basic types of awards:

Community Awards
These are awards that are awarded as a result of the members voting. Examples of such awards are the member of the month and picture of the month awards.

Special Awards
These are awards that are awarded to members by me. These awards are given to members that have proven themselves in one way or another. Or have done something special for Aquatic Community. These awards will never be given to a member that asks to be given them. So don't ask me for one of these awards!!!

Earned Awards
These are awards that are earned by reaching different milestones here at Aquatic Community. Such milestones can be to have made a certain number of posts in our forums, made a certain number of entries in your blog here at Aquatic Community or referred x users to our forum. Members who meet the criteria can request their awards on the awards page!

Group Awards
These are awards available only to certain member groups. An example of this type of award is the staff awards that are given to Aquatic Community staff and the trader awards that are given to traders with good record and trader rating.
