    So my extremely annoying friend "K-Dawg" has no net/life skills and is confused/angered by the little medals below everyones usernames in the forums (asked as she sits next to me and reads over my shoulder whilst waiting to use the computer)... What do these little medals signify, fellow GBAtempers? [​IMG]

    Your help in resolving this confusion will be most appreciated by a certain Dawg of the K persuasion. [​IMG]

    How long you've been registered, I think...

    EDIT: 1 medal every 6 months?

    You get more/different medals depending on how many posts you have.

    Special member groups like staff members get different medals.

    Oh and the medal images are from Advance Wars (GBA)
