Rewards Request

Post by Chalice Moon » Fri Apr 20, 2007 6:10 pm

Hi, it's been awhile since I posted here. I once posted as Mystic Lady. Glad to see you all once again.
:)

I have a rewards suggestion that I personally would like to see in Hardwood, I'm sure a lot of others would as well.
You have a lot of loyal veteran players that are not recognized in any way. I myself have been here since Feb 2001.

Now that you have the blue stars I think it would be awesome if we were rewarded for our loyalty with a star or something.

Me too, Dust ;)

And I really like that idea, CM ... would be especially useful when being berated by someone who's been here for five minutes 8)

could also encourage elitest (really gotta get a dictionary and keep it handy) behaviour though. Enough egos in there now without having 7 years placed next to a name...... ummm not aiming that at anyone in particular :wink: :wink:

Fair call except that, the blue stars are available to anyone with an internet connection, therefore anyone on HW. This is due to the fact that sites like Myspace and Yahoo 360 are free to the general public. This means that there really cannot be any "classification" of players! Advertising how long a player has been a member of the site can! I personally have no dramas with it, i've been on HW for bout 5 years now. I can see some newbies feeling somewhat intimidated by the ego's of some of the long term players. Merely my opinion :D

I may have been here for 7 years, but I enjoy playing the new players as much as the others and do so on a regular basis (would say daily but don't have the time to play daily). Many organizations recognize "Tenure" as a form of recognization to dedication and appreiciation of loyalty. I was offering one of many ways that little things could be done. Leagues do it many ways also in their forums or leader boards.

Not everyone would like to have something next to their name for their own personal reasons and as with the star it should be an option. I really come here for the fun, compitition and friendships.... I don't know if there is a better reason to play here.

JUST DUST

PS - also take pride in helping others learn the finer points of the game and this site.... especially newbys

It is great when you run into the ones that show good sportsmanship and are polite from beginning to end...... those are the ones that truely understand the purpose.

I so agree, Dust. I'd rather lose in a good atmosphere than win in a bad one.

Once again a great idea. I'll pass this on to Jonas and see what he says.
