Award system has been upgraded!

Recommended Posts

Good news everyone! The CC Zone award system has been upgraded! There is now an achievements section. The difference between achievements and awards is that achievements always show, even if you don't have them. When you get them, their icon lights up. Awards never show up unless you have them.

 

The file upload now has auto-award meaning the "Feeding the Teeth" award should be automatic now.

 

Hopefully, I've transferred all the awards over correctly, but if I've missed any from the old system, please let me know! :)

It does look very nice, but would it be possible to have some sort of hover text to explain what the awards are for?

 

Edit: in the User's Awards section, I mean.

Thanks, Tom! A few things, though:

 

- Why aren't the awards or achivements next to our username on our posts? I thought they looked really snazzy and worked well as badges of honor. :) 

- What seems to have replaced the spot where the awards were are the top/bottom 10 levels. That's a nice thought, but it honestly looks a little too verbose and messy. I think it worked better when it was a link to one's profile.

- On the home page, there are no more top posters, and something else seems to have gone missing, though I'm trying to remember what.

Now it has all changed, I must assume you're testing stuff out and wait for the things to come back.

I upgraded the board at the same time as the awards so I'll have to rechange some settings and images again, but at least every part of the site is up to date now. :)

 

Everything goes back to default settings due to the upgrade, but I'm working on getting things back to normal right now J.B.

I think that's the random image from the gallery. Or were you thinking of the 5 most recent arcade scores?

 

Also, the related threads thing at the bottom of each thread is kinda weird. Do you intend on keeping that?

 

This reply editor is weird too. Either i don't get to use any of the editing buttons or i don't get to see the BBCode tags. I'd like to have both, please?

 

EDIT: Oh great, it's also automatically logging me out after a period of "inactivity" (could it not tell i was typing something?!?). Unless, of course, this is your doing for whatever reason....

 

EDIT 2: Whoops, didn't see the arcade box below the latest files.

Hit the light switch button in the top left of the post toolbar to switch to code mode. Looks like the upgrade gives you both now.

Yeah, that's the annoying part. Used to i didn't need a light switch to go from one to the other. But if it's part of the "update" then i guess i'll have to live with it.

Nice. And now my browser is actually displaying the award icons! :D

 

You don't have any though! I can see why this might annoy some people though. I might drop the achievement number to post awards but still early days.

Well, before the update, other people's awards were displaying as 1-pixel images. :P

 

But whatever you did in the update seems to have fixed that. :)

I HATE THIS NEW LAYOUT! It's not telling me how to get some of these awards and it won't let me see who earned them!

I WANT TO KNOW WHO GOT THE RAINBOW DASH AWARD!!

Also I don't see any achievement section...

Highlight the "View Awarded" text to see who has the award.

 

Also, the achievements system was up but everyone complained and wanted the old system back, so a few hours later it went back to just awards.

I'm debating whether it's acceptable or not to show how to get awards. In the end, it all depends. Some instances don't even show the awards and you get them randomly. Some show exactly how to get them all. Some are hybrid and some are hidden. I guess it's up to the owner's discretion.

All the achievements during the upgrade lost their descriptions. They'll come back for all of them, eventually.

Well, as it is right now, we don't really need them, since they're written in the Guide

A lot of the descriptions in the guide are incomplete as well. Plus, having brief descriptions is good if you just want to know what an award is and don't necessarily want a full-blown guide.

I guess you're right, but I stand by my point of some that could remain "secret".
