I have implemented the award/badge system - we've called it our 'Honours' system.

All users who have been here for 5+ years, have 1000+ posts, or are staff will receive an award very soon. So long as you have posted in the last 30 days, otherwise the award disappears. These awards will be added and removed overnight.

The old forum bosses have become "GTA Gurus" (which are the 'experts' I mentioned above). These users are the go-to people for any GTA-related questions. They have no special powers, but users will now recognise that they know what they're talking about. Gurus will be picked by staff, and we'll start this process off soon.

You can see all Honours here.



(By "Staff" I mean admins, super mods, section mods and site admins ONLY. No other users are staff. )

Really excited seeing this already. I like how you made forum bosses guru's instead. The badges look quite attractive. I like all of it actually.

Thanks Gerard and co.

I just wanna say - private forums.That's what got the guys to post in this forum again.Everyone would see some new topic which was unreplied to while they were scrolling down to their private forum, and post there, and then go to the private forum to see what's new.Same with the Honours system, the eyecandy attracted members again.

Also, for the 10k post award/honour, please replace it with Over 9000.

I love the badges! The 'OVER 9000' is pretty epic :P

Anyway, these groups your all talking about... how would someone determine if a person is an expert in a certain area? If it was just plain old recruitment then your likely to get a bunch of people who think their hot shots in a topic but really know little at all or they are wrong. What's exactly the idea around recruiting people?

To be accepted into one of these groups you should need say a certain amount of posts in that section, which would be evaluated by the top man who runs that group. If it seems like he/she knows that certain area well and are willing to help out then they get in. Similiar recruitment techniques to the old gangs; help encourage posting activity but can lead to just spam posting.

Nothing to see here, move along

We scrapped the groups idea, and replaced it with staff-appointed Gurus.

These people will be selected for being helpful and knowledgeable, not through application or self-selection. No hot-shots, dicks, spammers or power-hungry crazies.

I'll have to agree with Evo, I never really noticed it until now but it is a little too bright on the white background.
- If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
