Yeah, I actually like the idea. RHP could give its own titles and awards for a variety of things. They'd be a fun thing to strive for, and get us even more addicted to this site.
You could earn a title for staying above a certain rating for 100 games. And there'd be these titles for all different ratings, so every one could try to get one. You could h ...[text shortened]... could be a section in the profile where your title, and your various awards could be displayed.
No, no, you got it wrong.
Like you say, there is already awards for moves (star colors) and tourney victories in your profile. MAPOTM awards used to be in the profiles as well.
If you have a good rating, you will be 'up there' on the rating tables and the same counts for MAP.
The whole idea of this is not to give awards for just one thing, but to put it all together. Take all activities and weight them the same.
Tournament victories will have the same weight in this system as making X amount of posts, Y amount of recs, Z amount of moves and your position on the different tables.
So someone who only comes here to make 5 moves a day will not be ranked high although he/she will (possibly) be rated number 1 on the site.
The idea is to get everyone 'active' across the site and involved in all activities including the forums, clans, leagues, tourneys, sieges etc. by giving this incentive.
BTW Norlys. I wouldn't really like the military ranks either - just used it as an example.
I'm not very creative...
