    So I was surfing through one of the Bills' sites like I frequently do. I've seen this very large designation plaque they have but not being a participating member it never dawned on me until now how special it really was.

    To that end, giving credit to The Range where due, I thought it would be nice to honor some of our especially long-suffering members - many of whom don't get much notice at all, by way of a badge such as what follows. It's not unlike the "I survived the server transition" badge, but IMO, a bit cooler and more exclusive. What do y'all think?

    I think it makes sense. I wonder if instead of a badge we can have a year counter added to our profile. Kinda like how the post count and vCash is displayed. This way everyone can see the years someone has been here. Bungie.net does that. Except you have to click on a member's profile to see how many years they have been a member.

    I've been here 8 years, checking the boards almost every day, but only average 8 posts a year.

    I think I need some kind of "Minimalist" badge or something. :D

    Great idea. Probably not a long list of 10 year veterans so these guys deserve their props.

    Maybe for members like Bill who've basically been here from the start we could also have something like a "Gold Standard Charter Member" badge :idk:

    I still think my idea is a better idea. This way it doesn't cause a divide in the community. Displaying everyone's years as plain text will help prevent anyone thinking they are "special." Don't get me wrong wrong there is bound to be some elitism with the years being displayed but with a badge displaying only certain years I think it could cause more elite attitude than just a plain text display.

    We'll have to agree to disagree. Obviously for the next few years I have no horse in this race, but considering how abysmal the Fins play has been, IMO, there's something to be said for paying homage to active members who've hung in there year after year with very little satisfaction to show for it... .. to the point where it's more that they're deserving of special recognition than any perception of elitism. I mean, compared to the current server transition survival badge, our long standing members actually earned this distinction. Now if site leadership wants to chronologically mark off years of membership beyond the very obvious and informative "year joined" for less than 10 years, that's another story entirely.

    Bottom Line: if someone's put up with all the team frustrations, hard wired pissing and moaning or homerism, and of course intentional attention whoring and trolling for ten years they deserve special recognition. if you're concerned about "elitism" then let's instead eliminate the "donator/supporter/VIP badges" cuz nothing says "you do less than me to support the site" than those. :idk:
