Good idea, but I think the upkeep would be too much for the mods. Too much hassle to update.

Agreed. I think the mods should start updating (more) what we already have before we get to more stuff that would involve updating.

I like the idea, but I agree that there shouldn't be prizes. As for the updating issue, I'd say we should just be in charge of keeping track of it ourselves. Give us an extra post in our Stat threads for it and those of us with our own boards just add a post, and we just have a thread where we post proof of our earning the achievements. Then we have Officials and such approve it.

Each member keeps track of their own achievements w/links. I doubt that many people will fluff up their achievements and if they do go bragging about lots of stuff they don't have, I suspect their be found out pretty quickly.

If someone wants a special title or prize, then they can post/PM/VM with their achievement post/links so a mod can then look at them and give 'em the green-light. Not that much work if you only give out titles/prizes (if you give them out at all) sparingly.

Edit: Just saw Khaj's post, lol. Pretty much the same thing, 'cept I am in favor of titles and maybe small prizes.

Also I like the idea of titles. *will totally get the title for Grader/Ref/Ranger/Judge*

No prizes. The achievement itself is the prize!

And you don't need a whole new post in your stats for what you achieved. Just add it in with what you have.

Don't think battle total should be a part of it, because then you're practically begging more 1v1s to happen.

However, I think battle record could be used. Say, an achievement if you get a 50 win streak? (Could be lowered) Or if you manage to maintain a positive record for # amount of time? There're quite a few possibilities for this.

Khajmer @ You're a judge?

too bad, you're late :p I'm the first Ref/Grader/Judge/Ranger here.

*insert maniacal laugh here*

So... Hm... I really don't have anything to add to this thread. It doesn't sound half bad, but I'm not too sure about handing prizes for this stuff. Just... some people might start scream "NO WAI! MORE FREEBIES FOR NUBZ!!1!1". You know who you are.

That's all I have to say.

If this happens with prizes, only do them ever 20 or so.

No, and as I've said I'm not a fan of the in-game contests. But I'd do it for the title. I would so do it for the title ;-D

I love this idea. I think it goes back to the heart of the original Pokemon values - yes, the very first episode where Pika hates Ash & Ash steals Misty's bike...
Wait. That came out wrong.
What I mean is that it makes people proud of what they've done, what they've worked for. Like Trainers are proud of badges not because they won, but because they worked TO win, like Ash getting Pikachu's respect, or whatever.

- wanders off into land of sentimental crapola -


I think a league table or w/e would add an element of competitiveness that would spoil this idea, though. I have nothing against competing or battling, I just think that it belongs with the URPG Ladder or the Story Competitions. (OKAY, THE CONTESTS TOO.)

Maybe a Trophy to put in the stats, for EVERYONE who makes that achievement. No prizes IMO, unless you count the ego/confidence boost.

Maybe buy titles or said trophy(ies) with a certain amount of achievement points. Something witty like "I worked my ass off and all I got was this lousy plaque".

I have asked PhantomKat to take lead of this project, suggesting that perhaps she might find it useful to work with other URPG members like Seq. At the moment, they are putting together a list of possible achievements we would like to see.
