Profile Flair is our new forums feature.
Flair, is basically replacing our old medal system, which unfortunately the new upgrade does not accommodate for.
So what does that mean??
Unfortunately, all the medals that we have been collecting up in the past are gone
which means that we have to start a fresh, and start collecting them all over again. Sorry!!!!!
However, think about all the fun you can have collecting them all again, revisiting challenges that you completed years ago, that you could be enjoying again!!
In future you will receive Profile Flair instead of a medal.
Not that it will look much difference to what you had before - it just has a new name.
Whether that names sticks is another matter, because it is very hard to get out of the habit of saying medal, so dont be surprised, if we do continue calling them medals.
It all might look very similar to you, because we are trying to recycle the old medals and making them into flair, where we can, as well as making a load of new ones.
To start you off, everyone who has made over 100 posts have been given their post count flair. If you haven't spotted them yet, you can see it to your right underneath your Avatar.
There is a link on the navigation bar at the top of the forum Boolprop Flair - where you can view all the flair that is available at the moment.
We are still working on making more
How Flair is going to work
For the most part, Flair will work exactly the same as the medals used to.
However, the requestable flair, will be a little different - instead of sending a pm to a moderator, you will now request your flair on a thread.
This will eliminate you sending requests to inactive moderators, and having to wait too long for your flair.
Any passing mod will see your post and can award your flair ... hopefully this way will be a lot quicker for you.
The Flair requesting threads will be kept in the Events forum
