    I've added the remaining gems to the Trophies ladder, so it is now complete. All those of you with a high number of posts will be getting a mass application of them up to your post count via the Alerts soon.

    This doesn't change anything in the threads per se, it just integrates the various gems as "trophies" achievable by anyone, depending on their post count. Your "trophy points" listed in various places on the forums will now properly link to a list of all the gems you've collected. It should be less confusing than before, since previously the trophies didn't reflect any of the ranking we've used throughout the forums.

    Havn't had a spam attack on my alerts just yet - or seen anything change for that matter.
    I guess this is one of those changes that is more useful for logging these 'trophy points' on the backend of the forums, as opposed to actually changing anything for us users :confused:

    Though the gemstones are nice(though it'll probably take me another 10 years on this board to ever get the rogue stone) at the end of the day,

    That's right, the points don't matter, just like who wins this year's election.

    You've had all of them up to your post count awarded already in the past: http://www.sorcerers.net/community/index.php?members/xosmi.9684/trophies

    You've still got a long, long way to go before you top the trophies ladder. :D And no, this is actually the front-end part of the system, the back-end's been in place all along, just in a different fashion (via user "ranks", displayed instead of avatars for those without them).
