    In noticed that the trophy Quaternary 25 points is awarded to users that have been members for a year, but what about after that? Should there be a trophy awarded for each year registered?, every other year,? every three years? Every five? After 10, 15, 20?

    Discuss.

    Perhaps there should also be an official poll about this

    My two cents:
    It should be more creative and something to look forward to... and not just another year, another 10 points. So maybe every two or three years we get something really cool or something awesome every five.

    Has the trophy point system been this way through the entire lifecycle of TFN?

    Personally, I like everything about this site, so I have no complaints about anything, except any post made by Supershadow :p

    All joking aside, what is the intent of the trophy system? Was it designed to allow progression between Youngling to Jedi Master?

    Yes, I'm pretty sure that's why it was designed.
    Your status is decided by how many trophy points you have, not by posts.

    I think it's a cool idea, like bonus point for every year. 10 points for 1 year, 100 points for 10 years kind of thing?
    Maybe even colours or perks like that for certain years (like 5 and 10)

    Yes, give more rewards to your (internet) elders.

    I think there should be trophy points for every 3 years. I'm assuming Disney is going to release the ST every three years like all the rest of them were. This way the people get a boost after every movie.

    lol, honestly I don't think I was involved with the creation of any of the current trophies. A lot of them came as the result of mods playing around with the trophy system when we were still testing out the new software.

    Perhaps it's time we opened it up to users. Let them submit their own suggestions for trophies, and then we can decide in MS which ones to make official.

    The whole system is weak at best. TF.N is forcing titles onto the users that some don't like - for instance I'm not a fan of, nor do I really enjoy Jedi - yet here I am, Jedi Grand Master. Yay for me.

    There's a reason for that choice: the place is called Jedi Council.

    Make the post count between "ranks" greater (and award trophies for certain milestones 1,00 posts, 10,000, 20000, etc) Like, for instance, a person should remain a youngling until they've racked up at least a thousand posts, and gotten the 1000 posts trophy, or whatever.

    Custom user titles for those who've reached a certain number of posts?

    Nevermind, I see your point now. I didn't notice before that trophy points were being rewarded for having posted 30 times and stuff like that.

    I personally think titles should go by age and not post count. :p Sorry anyone who signed up after 2007; I don't care how many posts you have, you're still a newbie to me.

    There are no trophies after 10k I believe, and that's discrimination.

    Also there are no stars after 50k.

    I'll be fine if I get a title that reads "Smart@$$" or just simply "Jerk". I really don't care about stars or trophies, I just want my snark to be recognized.

    Your snark is average, at best.

    It's about knowing your audience.

    Trophies for one, two, five and ten years. Also for five, ten, twenty-five, fifty and seventy-five thousand posts. Need to make the gaps between post count trophies big enough that there really is no point in actively chasing the next one.

    I like the idea of opening up to suggestions for the trophies.

    Wait! Does that mean I'm not a newbie any more?? :D

    I agree... going from "youngling" to "padawan" after a hundred (or however many it is) posts is silly. I think they have it set to the same settings as the temp board, still. The lower limits there made sense, because we weren't going to be there long term.

    I personally would take out the trophies and allow for user title customization after a certain number of posts. Having both the ranks and the stars is silly.

    I agree, the various staff and VIP tags make distinctions based on title rather pointless. Plus custom titles are fun.
