i been on the hunt for a feature for the site for quite some time now that works kind of like the ps3 trophies, xbox achievements, foursquare & untapped badges.

basically i want to incorporate a modification to the site that will reward you with a badge (kind of similar to the system i have now in the UCP but more elaborate)

for example there would be a "i REALLY love this place" badge that you would unlock for having 5000 posts. a "you might as well bury me with the site" badge that would unlock for being an active member for 4+ years. an "elite referrer" badge that would unlock after you have referred 5 members to the site, whom have posted 5+ posts each. each badge would have a unique little image and as i build the badge system more and more will be added over time.

anything from post counts to having 5+ trophies in the arcade, possibilities are endless when it comes to something like this its just a way to make the forum more active. there is a ton of features that i spent sleepless nights working on over the years.

just a thought, anyone for or against this? discuss.

Re: awards/achievements/trophies/badges

I think it's a great idea. Gives incentive to log in and return.

I'm as guilty as anyone for not posting more content, but maybe a badge for new threads created/most images posted/etc. Just something to boost content.
