    Funny thing I had already thought about creating awards for SUN and wanted to ask you Tyrus what you think about this. Great to see SUN staff was faster than me. Really good idea and outstanding designs. Once more glad to be here with you guys!

    Cool idea. It would be cool if we could get ribbon or award functionality embedded under your avatar, or perhaps as an expandable window or something to that effect. I don't see them remaining functionally useful as people achieve more of them due to their current massive size. On that note, it would be nice for the same functionality to exist for owned ships. It would be pretty cool to go the whole specialized custom forum route, with each post functioning more as an information system on the player, rather then a window detailing a lot of useless fluff. Perhaps something to look at a fundraising campaign for....

    I think it would be better for admin to put the ribbons up for the servicemen that way there is no confusion and no one tries to just add them for fluff

    My paperwork gland just exploded.

    EDIT: we actually keep record of who has which awards. Obviously, parading around a decoration you didn't earn will earn you a visit from some very omnious people clad in black, speaking harsh German and wearing funny symbols on their sleeves.

    This. All of this. Take it to Zov in the suggestions forum. Especially the part about "Awards/ribbon rack as part of the avatar panel" thing.

    Could you put this in some google doc so there won't be any misunderstandings who was awarded what decorations?

    BTW Great document!

    Is it just page 20 that is different? Not seeing much of a change in the manual.
