Awards system has been disabled. We are looking into an issue with that addon.

Please accept our apologies.

It has to be John Kerry.

He stole my awards and threw them over the White House fence.

What is the award system?
It's the stuff in some profiles that shows the user has more than X# of posts or was prior military or whatever....the stuff at the bottom of the postbit (user information) where your avatar is.

I'm guessing that the liberals all pushed for "award equality" so management just did away with all awards to make everyone even.

Do you have to troll every single thread you come across with partisan crap?

Leave it alone.

Aw shucks! I recently got an award for making a certain amount of posts over many months. Now they are going to change the system? I just can't win, and it's all their fault! If they didn't have threads that practically guaranteed a response... :lamo:

Good evening, AP! :2wave:

Good evening pg. I just thought the website got caught up in one of the government's entitlement programs and was trying to extricate itself...

I have no idea what awards are and haven't a clue why some people have gavels or skulls or other little icons on their user description margin. Hell, many would say there's lots I don't have a clue about, but I'll survive.

Nah, I haven't seen a time where the government found it necessary to reduce benefits over the past five years. There must be some other reason to deprive those deserving of their awards...

I was thinking along the same lines.

Either everyon is awarded or nobody gets an award.

I do not think they are changing the system, but that there is some glitch in the software, possibly doing bad things to performance. The owner spends a remarkable amount of time tweaking things and monitoring performance and such.

I was getting my five-year award this month. Maybe I broke the system. :(

Good evening, Redress. :2wave:

What do the gavels, numbers with K after them, and things like that represent? Also, what determines when the "title" under my name changes? Length of time on DP?
