    You may have noticed this morning that we have re-instated the old medal system in regards to postcount.
    In case you've forgotten, or if you weren't around when the system was in place, your medal count is directly related to your postcount.
    For an explanation of these ranks, take a look at the wiki.

    Thank you Costello, tj_cool, Minox, and others for making this change possible.

    I for one appreciate the visible e-peen

    People who have more medals than me with lower post counts make me cry. Is it a glitch?

    Nevermind, just read the wiki.

    That is in fact a feature.
    More medals < Shinier medals
    For instance, a lot of people have more medals than me. But mine is awesome.

    Also, each medal has its proper alt-text/hover-text associated with it, so if you're ever unsure what a medal stands for, hover over it with your mouse for about a second and you'll get a nice little tooltip explaining it!

    For some of the staff I believe it uses old names and probably does not account for newer ranks.

    Can't make everybody happy.
    Could you give it a couple of days before deciding that you dislike the new-old-feature? You might get used to it. Might even like it.
