Length of service medals
#16
Quote:(The membership awards, admittedly, less than the awards for kind behavior and expertise.)
Which was my point. I never questioned any medal other than the 1- and 2-year membership medal. :wink:

Because I recall you (more than once) threathening to rescind the medal system upon entering RATv3... 8)
The laudes have gone, as eem to have the birthdays and the whole statistics area, but not the medals.

Hi Robert
Can't I change my mind? The birthdays, btw, are still here and I attempted to convert as many of them as possible. If that didn't work, it's not intentional.
Laudes was supposed to be reset on conversion. Just the fact that this is not standard sort of forced a conversion. I'm actually still looking for a new laudes mod and I have my eye on one.
Greets!

I always prosed a medal for gladiator reenactors like a palm leaf or something like that. Remember, Jasper?

That sounds like a good one in addition to the current ones, but I would say it's for "Awarded to members who have consistently shown expertise in the field of gladiatoral history". So not only about gladiator impressions (as I think you mean by re-enactors), but more for the underlying knowledge (which of course can also reflect in their impressions)

That, Jona, could only have been written by a single man. Well, at least one not married 25 years! I cannot quite recall the last time I had the last word with Salaminia and, if I have done, it was only because she allowed me to think that I had...

Then again, I take the point of male v male.

I have no idea what the "medals" and other accoutrements on the site mean. That is most likely due to the fact I haven't gone looking to find out. Having found out that I have one I came here seeking elucidation.
