BP Tech Ops

This merit rank is to be awarded for outstanding service to the BP community over the years, in particular helping new players with good advice. This new rank comes to supplement that of veteranship, aka AIM Legend. AIM Legend will still be awarded to being an outstanding member, but we felt the need for a second non-technical badge that underlines specific efforts in providing information. In the words of our patron Fred Bearpit, they are "Santa's Little Helpers". The rank isn't 100% new though. It was just forgotten. Eisenhower used to hold it, but in the realm of Hardware Ops. We just decided to give it a wider reach.

The newest BP Tech Ops is now: cougar. Our moderators will submit new nominations so PM them if you have proposals.

PS: This badge being forum specific, won't replace any technical badge such as "team v1.13, coder, modder, etc". Those define quite well a user's role and are better suited than a generic badge. It doesn't mean coders and modders arent recognised as being "Santa's Little Helpers", it just means they have already our appreciation and thanks.

This was an announcement not a flame bait. Nominations are final. If you have a problem with them, there's always PM.

You have to be kidding me! If we give it to Australians doesn't that undermine the whole value of the damn thing!



Only messing, congrats Cougar & Kaerar, it's great to have dedicated members like yourselves on board.

7 years of silliness..occasional helping of folks..additions to 1.13 and one incident of weirdness we'll all forget..i expect a badge shaped like a chunk of fine aged cheddar one day Very Happy

dont want this to look like a flame..but..umm..there are 3-4 others i woulda givin the badge to before them...no offence to them..but then again..i dont know if the ones i'm thinking of would be eligible due to their other rankings..but i'm thinking..Marlboro..Starwalker..and..curse me for even suggesting this..but he is a long timer who has contributed countless great(and bad ) ideas and i have seen him often helping folks..Mauser...i guess its because i been on BP sooo long and have seen so much over a long period that my opinion is based on a longer time frame..

Hi Tbird,

Marlboro is a Moderator, Starwalker has a team 1.13 Badge recognising his involvement, you have a Master Gunsmith badge, and Mauser has an Aim Legend one.

Anyone who sees those badges will realise you have experience and knowledge with regards JA.

The "Tech Op" would replace your current badge, i don't think anybody is being left out, have a read of the description again.

It's better if suggestions are made through PMs to Shanga rather than risking awkward situations, not the case here, but it could happen.

@tbird - Off_Topic is right, you cannot have two badges at the same time. That doesn't mean your contribution to the forum is less appreciated, it only means we have recognized is already.

And badges do have a small use - aka defining part of the member's role in the community. Guys like you and Starwalker or the coders carry badges specifing their skills and technical contributions. More much informative than a generic badge.

As for suggesting other members who haven't had their merits recognised yet (aka have no special badge, just the post rank one), please use PM. I am open to suggestions if they are well motivated.

It's an ongoing process anyway.

Still what I said applies to them too. All have special badges. One cannot be more special than special. Speciallest isn't even a word. Razz

That'd be specialestest if it existed. Great sig as always Majek. Those poor players all get the "if I can't win I don't want to play" sulky badge.

Not sure I did help destroy it either (despite broadly agreeing with your current sig) I just gave it a couple of mutant children e.g. mods. & like all mods you can take them or leave them, they're not compulsory & what's more they are free. Considering how much work goes into one that's pretty amazing in these avaricious times huh?

diff between criticising and slamming berating etc..grow up you hatefilled lil twit and try to be constructive instead of a spoiled little brat all the time..holy geez how much more of his crap do we hafta put up with..if it was me or anyone else..they get warned and banned..but he just gets away with everything..its pathetic..just grow up and criticise like an adult and not some ignorant foul mouthed teenager on crack

Really? You'd get banned? If you weren't banned for all your useless spam all over the forum why would you get banned for not liking stuff. slamming and berating? There's 5 people who actually constructively defend their opinions other are all like you, whining accusing me of trolling,...

Now go and make yourself the victim here, because of some prejudice that doesn't even exist!! :digit:
