Stratics has adopted a new way to boast your accomplishments here on the forums! We are now able to award medals that appear under your ribbons and in a new tab in your profile. You may see an example of a medal on this user profile: Stratics Community Events. These medals will be awarded for contest and event entries. They may also be offered for various other noteworthy actions or achievements in the future. They are, however, optional--if you don't like them and don't want one that you have earned, we will remove it at your request. You can always see a listing of the currently awarded medals here. You will see that the medal system was used briefly once before in 2012, and we have left these awards in place. We hope you enjoy these, and we are open to other uses for them. Let us know what you think!
