... Welcome to Flair ...

Post by itsjulie »

Welcome to Flair

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 :cry:
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

I'm glad the medals feature lived on in some form, collecting them is fun. ^^ Is there a limit to them in the new system, by the way? Just wondering if we'll have "flair hoarders" at some point. :hmm:

no there is no limit to how many flair we can have - it is unlimited
so any you receive from now you will keep forever!!!!

However, you might find we are going to be a little tighter in giving them out :cover:
We are not sure how they are going to work with space - its all a learning curve!!

The Flair medals are shown in three sizes. 22 pixels is the main size that you will see on the forum itself. They are 44 pixels in the profiles and 66 pixels on the list of Flairs, and that's why they have larger pixels. If we made the originals in 66 pixels they would lose too many details when resized to 22. One block of 3x3 pixels would turn into a single pixel. But we are gamers, used to pixel sprites and pixel people. :lol:

Some are old ones converted to fit the Flair system, and we are making many new ones so it feels more fresh. ^^

Can we request flairs on already completed challenges? LOL I really do not want to do some of them again. My OWBC took 10 tries.

I am afraid not. New flairs have to be earned again

Sorry Jenn ....
we decided to start afresh as we have had to make all the new flair from fresh - we couldn't just reuse the old medal graphics without remaking them to fit.
Also going through everyones medals and replacing them all would have been a hell of a lot of work for us.
