Default A big heart award

I would like to propose a big heart award for unsolicited acts of kindness involving animals or other humans.

Possibly a tiny little icon placed in a member's quick profile?

Wonderful idea!

Another forum I frequented had an eyeball award for members of the community who were particularly worth watching.

Good suggestions.

We will need to determine if this is possible.

I think the icons should be placed under avatars if we can do this.

That's totally possible with VB. I think the other site put theirs just to the right of the username or avatar image.

vB sites can be customized. Templates define our style. Would you post an example of one thread with the eyeball award when you get a chance?

Davi member has over 10,000,000 posts? Is that a joke? I found a chow award icon. I get the concept. We're going to want this feature.

They're running an older version of vB with no vBAdvanced. Could be third party software WG doesn't have. Anyone over there you know we could contact?

I found an article from Feb of last year - it claims they have 9 million page views a month and over 100,000 members.

And you thought you had your hands full!

It's not a joke, but it doesn't accurately represent his post-count, either. They have a system at conceptart.org for reporting posts. Each time a post is reported, it generates another post on their internal admin forum saying so-and-so has reported post bla. Each one of those report posts is posted using Davi's account, since he, I assume, is in charge of then dealing with those inappropriate posts.

Davi is one awesome guy, I might add. He is on the short list of internet personalities I've met up with in real life.
