Slightly Modified version of a guest question sent in by Dhruva Batni.

He is the first recipient of the trophy_silver GQHero trophy! Back-end changes for this trophy are in, but it may take while for it to appear on the profile page.

Now for the question
Any short wave radio enthusiast will eventually bump into stations which continuously transmit spooky stuff like this. What are these stations called?

Introducing.. Medals and Trophies

devadutta @ 1:01 pm, GMT +0000 ( 1257771718 ) Play

Like some of you noticed over the weekend, we have started rolling out a new awards system.

You will now be assigned various medals/trophies based on your achievements on Boiledbeans!

Here are some of the medals that are already impemented

Gold Silver Bronze

Respectively for the top 3 scorers of each month. These medals are applied retroactively, so even if you topped the monthly chart some 20 months ago, you will still see a medal!

Trophies that are coming soon..

  • GQ Hero — From now on, if a question you send gets published, you will get a trophy. Unfortunately, we cannot apply this retroactively
  • FIRST!!! — Answer a question first, get a trophy. Will be applied retroactively
  • mod 20 — A trophy for every 20 points you score on BB. Will be applied retroactively

and finally the big one for “all time top scorer” and “all time best run length” and…

Trophy_Gold

Current month’s top scorer“. Yep, this is rolling trophy. Relatively easy to get, hard to keep :)

These will be visible in detail on your profile pages and a summary of your medals/trophies will be displayed below each of your comment. A nice way to show it off!

So, let us know what you think!

If you have any other trophy ideas, post it here as a comment!
