We've implemented an award and achievements system for malwaretips.com You can find a list with all the available awards and achievements - here . At this momemnt we've divided this system into 3 categories : Post Count Achievements The awards for this category are given automatically when a user reaches , 1000 , 2000 or 3000 posts. Activity Achievements The awards for this category are given automatically when a user has spent a certain period of time on malwaretips.com. Awards Awards are a way for admins to show recognition to a member. Awards are only occasionally given out. Awards are given out manually by Admins after thoughtful consideration. You cannot get an award by asking for one via PM or any other way. So please, DON'T ask for one! The Awards and Achievements will appear in the postbit and in the member profile page. Each member has it's personal Awards and Achievements page , in which other members can find all the awards and achievements that the member has received.
