    I'd be open to lend a hand with creating new badges to help members reach those requirements, alternatively. This might also potentially allow members to finally attain the Padawan Learner and Jedi Knight ranks, which are a bit useless in the current system.

    Is XenForo easy to work with when it comes to adding in new trophies?

    We have hundreds of badges. If you think we need more in specific categories I can make them. I make them myself in Photoshop using an image and the border stamp, then upload it to Xen-Foro. It's not hard we just need ideas if we need more. :)

    So, folks, I took some time and completed over fifty new trophies for us to work towards. Trophies that I believe might help raise the values of the other positive ratings in comparison to the like, and trophies that might keep even the more accomplished of you busy (I'm looking at you @Alex Sebire, @FN-3263827 and @tm0910196). I sent these, along with the files of their icons, to the staff here - but I'd like to post them here as well for the sake of posterity.

    Without any further ado, here's a list of them without the icons:

    Trophies 2.0:

    Sith Holocron - 1500 pt: Your likes outrank your posts 15 to 1!
    Darksaber - 2000 pt: Your likes outrank your posts 20 to 1! Tarre Vizsla's blade is yours.
    First Holocron of the Whills - 2500 pt: Your likes outrank your posts 25 to 1! One to give...
    Second Holocron of the Whills - 3000 pt: Your likes outrank your posts 30 to 1! ...the other to take.
    KX-Series Security Droid - 2000 pt: You have 4,000 likes! It's high. Very high.
    M3M1 Detective Droid - 2500 pt. You have 5,000 likes! Not even the Droid Detective has a like count that high!
    Hunter-Killer Assassin Droid - 5000 pt. You have 10,000 likes! You facilitate communication between species and put an end to hostilities.
    Exemplary Service - 2000 pt. Your thread has been featured on the Cantina. Well done!

    Kowakian Monkey Lizard - 100 pt. You have 50 Funny ratings! Keep making your Cantina patrons laugh!
    Gungan Jester - 200 pt. You have 100 Funny ratings!
    Weequay Pirate - 500 pt. You have 250 Funny ratings!
    Toydarian Swindler - 1000 pt. You have 500 Funny ratings! Your like tricks don't work on me! Only humor!
    Hutt Crime Lord - 1500 pt. You have 750 Funny ratings! Your fellow members have learned to appreciate you.
    Wayward Knight - 2000 pt. You have 1000 Funny ratings! The Disciples of Silence are watching you...
    Suave Gambler - 3000 pt. You have 1500 Funny ratings! You truly belong with us among the clouds.
    Scruffy Looking Nerf Herder - 4000 pt. You have 2000 Funny ratings! You've made the Kessel Run in under twelve parsecs!

    Rising Senator - 100 pt. You have 50 Great Post ratings! Keep posting quality content.
    Military Director - 200 pt. You have 100 Great Post ratings!
    Political Idealist - 500 pt. You have 250 Great Post ratings! You're a political idealist, not a murderer.
    First Order General - 1000 pt. You have 500 Great Post ratings! Your fierce commitment is an example to all.
    Imperial Grand Moff - 1500 pt. You have 750 Great Post ratings! This will be a day long remembered.
    Unyielding Revolutionary - 2000 pt. You have 1000 Great Post ratings! Your voice inspires us.
    Exalted Admiral - 3000 pt. You have 1500 Great Post ratings! What compels you to post so meritoriously?
    The Senate - 6666 pt. You have 2000 Great Post ratings! You are the Senate.

    Acolyte of the Beyond - 100 pt. You have 50 Wise ratings! Your words carry wisdom.
    Jedi Archivist - 200 pt. You have 100 Wise ratings!
    Guardian of the Whills - 500 pt. You have 250 Wise ratings! You are one with the Force and the Force is with you.
    Enlightened Master - 1000 pt. You have 500 Wise ratings! The ability to speak does not make you intelligent.
    Sith Pariah - 1500 pt. You have 750 Wise ratings! The Force deceives none but the narrow-minded.
    Dark Sage - 2000 pt. You have 1000 Wise ratings! The Supreme Leader is wise.
    Crazed Hermit - 3000 pt. You have 1500 Wise ratings! The truth is often what we make of it.
    Swamp Dweller - 4000 pt. You have 2000 Wise ratings! Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.

    Kubaz Informant - 100 pt. You have 50 Informative ratings! Keep us updated!
    Bothan Spy - 200 pt. You have 100 Informative ratings!
    Imperial Agent - 500 pt. You have 250 Informative ratings!
    Chiss Outlaw - 1000 pt. You have 500 Informative ratings!
    Rebel Intelligence Officer - 1500 pt. You have 750 Informative ratings!
    Loyalty Officer - 2000 pt. You have 1000 Informative ratings!
    Ascendancy Exile - 3000 pt. You have 1500 Informative ratings!
    Goldenrod - 4000 pt. You have 2000 Informative ratings! We're doomed!

    For the sake of presentation, here are a couple of their icons:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some are a bit tongue-in-cheek with humor (like the Hux and the Senate icons pictured here), but all of them conform to the border type, style and format previously used for the existent trophies.

    Very cool! So if I understand you correctly, these are going to be added, or is the staff just seeing what they think of them for now?

    The latter. I'm still waiting on word from Viral, but as I said - I tried to make them follow the format previously represented by the old trophies, so I'd assume there wouldn't be any particular issues with adding these.

    I would say you qualify for a lot of them.

    Edit: speaking of that, has a decision been made whether to implement these or not? Not that it matters. Just curious.

    Wow, I always knew it would be a difficult and long road to become a Jedi...:D

    I guess if it were easy, we'd all be cutting off arms in bars a cross the galaxy.

    I had an idea regarding the structure of level titles in the forum. I would like to know what you guys think about it, in the hope the mods might one day take the idea into consideration. Perhaps a variation of the idea.

    Ok so on a personal level many of us like to associate ourselves with either the Light, Dark or Balance of the force, depending on what we love most about Star Wars.

    I noticed the only way to get the Dark side titles like "Lord of The Dark Arts", is to have a negative rating. Which contextually makes perfect sense and works perfectly fine. However consider this alternative, simply in service of personalisation.

    The Idea: I think level titles should lean more toward a
    choice of Force alignment rather than a consequence of ratings. Wouldn't it be great if when a new user joins the Cantina, they're given a choice of force alignment? The ratings system would stay exactly the same except if you are a Darksider by choice, your positive ratings will earn you Dark side titles and if you choose the Light, you can work up the Light side title path. Negative ratings would keep you at the bottom of the chosen path. This will give a greater sense of personalisation.

    I've noticed that positive ratings can award Dark Side trophies. So why shouldn't positive ratings go toward Dark Side titles?

    Keep in mind this is
    just an idea, so let us not fall into aggressive negotiations!
