Hey everyone,

I've been tinkering with the Forum Achievement system and got it to a point that I'm currently happy with. I may make further tweaks a little later on from feedback etc.

We currently have over 20 achievements on the forums, all of which can be found by clicking here. (http://forums.smitegame.com/xperience.php?go=achievements) A lot of them are self-explanatory. Below you can find some FAQs on the system.

I will be working on evolving this system as well and, hopefully, allowing users to exchange their Forum experience points. To be continued...

--------------------

FAQ:

Q: My achievements only show on my profile, not on my posts. Why?
A: I believe you have to have over three achievements to be displayed, but this theory is a bit hit-and-miss at present.

Q: How do I get the Tagger class?
A: You have to add tags to posts; you can find them below your reply (not quick reply).

Q: How do I get the Repped! class?
A: Your posts have to be given an undisclosed amount of positive reputation. There is a small shield button (as shown below) which can be used to either give negative or positive reputation to that user for that post.

Q: How do I get the Conversation Starter/Party Person?
A: You have to receive an undisclosed amount of "reply points" to your threads.

If you have any further questions related to this system, feel free to leave them below and, if I see a common trend, I'll add it to the FAQ.

I have 2 questions/problems. The achievements doesn`t appear any longer under my profile icon when I post (I don`t see to other people aswell). Is it a bug or you wanted to make it like this?

And the shield icon doesn`t appear anywhere.

This is a bug on my end atm. Will fix tonight. You should still have the achievements on your profile.

Shield icon?

Below my avatars, rep power etc., do you see an icon that's like a star?

I see the star and triangle one, but not the shield.

The star is the shield I reference. It's a "Sheriff's Badge" also known as a shield. Sorry for the confusion.

What confused me was that in your image as example appeared something like a shield besides the star, but I suppose it`s something that only moderatos have. Also I noticed that all 55k members of the forum have Repped! Third class

Ah, I was tweaking with some numbers. Seems I tweaked them too low.

I've added in another Achievement (Reputation Distributor) and an Award (Support). The new award is distributed manually to people who assist in the Help & Support or Bug forums.

I was thinking maybe you can make more achievements show when posting. It is capped to 5

I've increased it to 10, but not sure when it will update.

Thank you! And for me it is not a problem since I have only 5 achievements now, but I have seen others with more but displayed only 5.

I'll see how it goes with 10, but may revert it to 5.

I did some searh and I found 7 people with more than 5 achievementss (6 achievements each to be more specific) so reverting to 5 won't cause much trouble xD

Can Overdrive only be held by one person?

No. It's an achievement, meaning it's personal to each person.

Each award, however, can only be held by one person, except the Activity Award.

Is there a way to change the achievements shown? I just got the Conversation Starter, which is way better than Full Profile. It still shows as before. I wish ate least it would give priority to the new ones.

I don't believe there is a way currently, no.

That's a shame, but thank you :(

Whut? Not it's showing. Crazy. Was it you, Kaostic? If so, thanks, man.

EDIT: Oh, I see now. I purposely deleted a field in my profile to see if I could get rid of the Full Profile achievement in order to show the Conversation Starter. It worked.

Just found this and it's very useful.
This is a very late reply, but thanks for making this. :)
I don't understand the "tag" thing though.

Just a suggestion: why not show the rarest achievements instead of what appears to be a random selection?
