Hello there. :classic: I have been getting some PMs about the two Star Wars icons that I have under my avatar lately, but I myself don't know what they mean or how I got them. The only thing I know is that you get these for extraordinary services to the Star Wars forum, like making a lot of reviews. However, I have not done much except participate in discussions and contests. :look: So, it would be great if anyone can answer this. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, it's this: Posted Image and this: Posted Image
Thanks.

I was curious too. I think the first one is for being a frequent and good poster in the Star wars forum and the second for perhaps doing something to do with the comic game?

Yes, the first one was for good contributors to the SW forum. There was a topic about it somewhere...

The second one is for 1st place winners in Star Wars contests, so Oky Wan is currently the only member with this tag. I know because I asked KimT. More incentive to join the contests... :grin:

I was supposed to write won one of the contests :tongue:. Congratulations for getting the tag from winning Oky. Perhaps we need a tag index like the rank/user group system index

Kim said that the Death Star icon is about exemplary conduct in the Star Wars forums -  being a model forum member and behaving in a manner that he approved of.

I hadn't noticed the contest icon before.

Hmm, as Jim said, this appears to be more incentive to join contests in this mini-forum.  I must remind myself to do this.

Great! Thanks for the replies, guys! I feel honored to have these "medallions", so thanks KimT! :thumbup:
I guess this can be closed now... unless it'll become a general discussion topic for these icons.

The first one is as mentioned given to those who've contributed in a special manner to the SW Forum.
And the 2nd one is given to winners of SW contests.
There's actually three persons who's got the prize-badge.

There's an X where your icon should be. Maybe it's just my computer?

Well I'll never get one of these. It wouldn't be fair of me to enter the EB comps because I have too many opportunities through my contacts at LEGO Co.

It's not an icon, it's just an image OKW included in his thread.

Its in the EB gallery, so I doubt it's Oky's. Perhaps it's the new symbol for a discussion?

Do the prize badges stay there forever or are they there until someone else wins another contest?
