    What is this contest about?
    We are going to start using trophies in the forum and we need help designing them.
    What are medals? They will look like .

    We are going to look for ten medal designs. The topics will be these
    • J-jam it in - received 500 likes
    • 1st place - Win first place in a contest in the forum
    • Contributor - Helped the betterment of NF
    • Straight laces - Go 5 years without being banned
    • Cookie - to the Mr. Obvious types
    • 10k post medal
    • NF member for ten years
    • Broke through heaven - Has achieved 2m rep
    • Wanderer - Its a secret
    • Legacy - achieve your first level of legacy in HVOA
    You can take part in as many of these categories as you want. After that, there will be voting in all ten of them. The winner of each individual medal will get two points and the runner up will get one point. The overall winner will get ten points.

    The size must be 30x30 pixels. You can only post your work and it must have been made for the contest. Asking for votes will disqualify you.



    ~ The contest will be open for a month until 11 September 11 PM UCT ~​

    They lack aesthetic because the background circles are different colors

    Meaning there shouldn't be a background or there should be a unified color

    They remind me of achievements in Steam. It might be cool have a universal background color for consistency, but would that not limit the creative options? I'm tempted to submit designs.

    I think the examples look great btw. Some of the ideas are really gewd but could benefit from grading. The higher the rank, the medal gets replaced with a new one. Let me explain with an example or two

    > NF member for ten years

    This is a great idea. Can we make medal versions, f.ex one for 5 year and 10 year users? Silver and gold for example. As you progress, the medals get replaced with new ones.

    > 2M rep

    The treasure goblin from D3 would fit this. This could also scale for 2M, 5M and 10M for example. Lots of goblins to take inspiration from too.

    Different grades is an interesting idea. And I do like the idea of a themed set, though I guess having different themes within that will make some more desireable than others to different people.

    On the few I whipped up, I remember thinking that some didn't quite match the scale (i.e. it's not clear what's a gold pair of tits and what are slightly bloodied plasters on a hand).
