Bring the Hammer BACK!

Please bring back the Tom's Hammer for the icon of having five or more badges of a certain level. The "badge icon" on top of the badge icon just looks bad in post & is more confussing, plus the Tom's Hammer looked cooler!! :sol:

  1. The tool tip doesn't explain what the badge icon represents anymore either. It used to say you had 5 or more bronze, silver or gold badges. Now it's just part of the link to your profile page like your username is.
  2. Agreed. The new icon looks generic.
  3. Yea I'd prefer the hammer (not that I have one), and possibly a nicer looking icon for the medal, although that's less important since you don't always see it. The bronze medal icon just looks like a brown spot.
  4. Ask and you shall recieve, ladies...
  5. Why do they keep changing the forum structure?
    We are still trying to understand everything that changed from the old forum, and they keep changing, and changing stuff. :??:
  6. The structure hasn't really changed (well, not for you guys), just the aesthetics.
  7. The names have changed, The Other is gone, now we have noobs with more points than some veterans, the Phoenix Suns lost to the Knicks, Vanilla Ice is a rocker...

    There have been plenty of changes!
  8. Oh, I wasn't thinking of changes that far back, just recently. The Other is not gone either, technically.

    Soon I wil be an addict. Pusher is the obvious next step for a title. I would have soon been an Honary veteran of THGC. Disrespect of the forum vererans, I think so.

    nOObs with more points than veterans? That is because the vererans of THGC were given .3 'Points' for their previously accumilated posts. I should have about 40,000 points for 10K posts at 10k x 4 points = 40,000 points. Vets were also ripped off of their previously accumilated 'best answers'. The French owners are the real nOObs. When the French owners EBAY auction this forum, I hope the bidders pause and realize the French will surrender immediately when the 'bidding war' begins.

    I would be getting close to Faithful Poster, instead I'm a lowly Regular :(
  11. I'd be 300 points away from Forum Master.
  12. I be a lonely nimble knuckle... I like the new system points better!! :D :pt1cable: :lol:

    Actually, I do truly believe BoM did "screw" the true veterans of this forum with the 0.3 points per post forumla that was used!!
  13. Those are 'posts' counts. We don't need no stinkin' points.
  14. I was a nimble knuckle three years ago. I may become a Pusher today sometime.

    Making veteran now is easy. Then it takes a while to hold the next title which is 'addict'. Then it takes like 100,000 points to become like a regular adict. Being a Pusher is the obvious step up from Addict. Point totals should reflect status related to level of Surrender Monkey. The French tech guy is a Level 2, but not on the Forum, in French funny bars.
  16. Techno34, I apologize for appearing to show disrespect flaming away on another of your fine threads. But the French Tech Guy is not a guy. He's a she. Emily. A lifelong search for her father has finally come to fruition. The French tech has located her father.

    PS. I don't really feel guilty about posting any of this.
  17. Another newsworthy story pointing directly to the French tech guy's influence here on Tom's Forum...

  18. As you shouldn't feel guilty... You earned that right!!!
  19. Badge, are you trying to make up for the 0.3 per points per post debacle by raping the new 4.0 points per post system?

    No you'd be a nimble knuckle, those were for post count not points. Nobody ever made it past Master Historian. I'd nearly be an Honourary Veteran :(
  21. With the current point system, is there anyone higher than an Addict? I think the highest point total I've seen is Hunter315 at close to 17,000.

    Ah I see now.

    If I used my post count from my own board, I'd almost be Master Gigolo of THGC.

    If I converted that post count to the current post points system, I'd have 168,000 points. :sol:

    Sorry, but conversions come at a rate of 0.3 points per post :D
  24. I'd still have 12,450 + 7,677 = 20,127 points.
  25. What about Wingy, what was his post count?
    I haven't seen him around.
  26. He had a custom title so he wasn't any of those ;)
  27. Hey,

    I have good news. The hammer is coming back! A bug caused it to go away. It should be fixed next week :)

    Justin
  28. It's good that the hammer is coming back, now I just need to earn one. :D
  29. Excellent.

    Do you know of any other changes the bug caused that will be reverting back?
