Love the achievements idea - definitely motivating.

 

On the storyline of the month idea, I really like it, but it can be very hard to go back and find said storyline to enjoy it, even with specific links to one show.

 

No real solution other than linking every show that story appeared in, which isn't really sensible imo, but I felt I should flag it.

 

Also, please don't use apostrophes for plurals as you have in the poll. I'm a fusspot, I know, but hey. Plurals matter: trophies, not trophys. Categories, not category's. I'm always in the IRC if people want proofreading done :)

The idea behind some of the Achievements are to encourage the longevity of some diary's. I for one have loved a few diary's that have ended after just a few months. If this helps some writers carry on just to collect an "Achievement" that gives me a few more months of a damn good diary <img alt=":p" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/tongue.png.ceb643b2956793497cef30b0e944be28.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png">.</p><p> </p><p> As for the Storyline of the Month, it is slightly difficult to go back through a diary and pinpoint the start and end of a storyline. But i think it also applies to Worker of the month. Its a difficult one to go back and find, but at the same time a good worker push or a good storyline is worth recognising and rewarding.</p><p> I will say that at the moment, Storyline of the month is the only Category which isn't doing as well as others in the Poll. So it could be removed or replaced if its not what people want <img alt=":)" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/smile.png.142cfa0a1cd2925c0463c1d00f499df2.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png"></p><p> </p><p> P.S's <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png"> haha sorry had to.

I'd be happy to include a clause with states that there has to be 3+ in the voting for it to be eligible. </p><p> </p><p> The Committee is not meant to be elitist in any way. It actually hasn't received as much bad feedback in the poll's as i thought, only 15.8% dislike, 36.8% Wait and see, and 47.4% like. Its still very much in the early staged and if it doesn't work out or prove "Good for Business" I'd happily reconsider. it was on put in place to stop empty category's and low nomination numbers.</p><p> None of the Committee members receive any special perks or treatment. Happy to discuss the Committee idea though.</p><p> Excellent job? Thanks, i'll try not to disappoint:cool:</p>

With the rule that achievements such as... <em>Hot Streak, Perfect Show Theory, Lead By Example, Stomping to Victory, Left in the Dust</em>. They will all require a minimum of 3 Nominee's in the Categories before an Achievement can be awarded. A two horse race is easier to win than a 3 horse race and could result in a higher vote share making it easier to get the 5-10 point leads.</p>
