    Do you hold forum awards in your community?

    Hi all,

    I am thinking to hold a forum award in my own community but it seems diffiicult to come up with the award titles

    Does anyone here holds any forum award in your forum? If yes, please share some ideas My community is based on gaming and general chat with very little web / game development issues.

    Some common awards i can think of currently:
    1. Most Improved (for playing my game )
    2. Best Moderator
    3. Most Active
    4. Funniest Member

    Feel free to comment^^

    Yes, I do.

    We do Member of the Year, Community Spirit (exemplifies the spirit of the community), Staff Member of the Year, Funniest Member of the Year and various categories related to the site (Article of the Year, Hack Author of the Year, etc.), etc. 5-8 awards per site (2 sites).

    With the awards, I want them to have meaning. I don't want them to be a joke. So, award categories should reflect that. At the same time, you have to stress that while important, it is not the end of the world and that it is cool to be nominated, let alone win, etc.

    Each member that joins my community has an award box in their signature. Each member receives an initial award so their box isn't empty. I call it a "permanent residency" award because my community is setup like a village.

    I have an oscar for best supporting actress in a drama.
    I also have it setup where my community has clubs you can join, so there are "badges" that go into the award box for the various clubs. I also have awards for friendship, support, inspiration, determination, appreciation, high posters, arcade champions, and people that donate to name a few.

    I realize these wouldn't work for all types of forums, but my members really enjoy receiving them.

    I love the one post wonder. That is so funny.
