Introducing monthly contest badges

submitted on September 25, 2009 by YanBz in "Buxr Website / Contests"
Every time you finish the monthly contest in top 3 you will gain a 'golden', 'silver', or 'bronze' badge displayed under your avatar. This is one more sign of recognition of your achievements (in addition to your title). Enjoy! Smile

I had to go back and count all the past victories by hand based on our contest announcements in the blog, so please let me know if you notice any errors.

P.S. You may need to refresh your browser to see the badges

    We'll get badges for being in the top 3 since we began?

    And now, with much fanfare and enthusiasm, Buxr presents the brand new...

    Wait... Darn it! I'm late.

    Ooooooohh, look! There is a new coupon up for Tabasco sauce. Big Grin

    Solstice, I just noticed you never finished first in the monthly contest. How come? Wink

      Truth be told, as inconceivable as it may seem, I actually have a life outside of Buxr.

      Slowly over the past few months I've been spending less time here, and devoting energy to other endeavors of high importance... Things like Dungeons and Dragons Online. Big Grin

      It would be nice to have a gold badge, but I'm not going to spend 2-3 hours a day finding deals in the attempt to garner one. If it happens great, and if it doesn't I guess I'll just have to lead a life unfulfilled in that regard. Besides, I'm still the highest ranking member at this point, badge or no badge, so I'll just let my ranking position speak for itself in the meantime. Wink

      You have a good chance this month, I think. You are trailing chinnam by less than 40 points and there are still a few days to go

      Are you really going to retire? I'm just getting started!

      Well, not retire-retire, but at the level which I intend to intend participate in the future, will most likely mean relinquishing my current position within 1-3 months time.

      I've grown weary of the mental taxation that comes with being "Top Contributor", since heavy is the head that wears the crown. Big Grin

      I'm more than happy with being next or lower at this point, as it will take all that pressure off.

      Maybe I'll opt for a triumphant comeback at some point, but who knows...

      How many times did you say that you were going to retire or not participate in the monthly contest? And then you just come back again?
