Say for instance, I am designer of the week ( unlikely I know Wink  ) After a week of me having the userbar, somebody else gets the userbar instead or if I win again, I get to keep it again. That way there's also a competitiveness to it because people may be trying to win the rare title.

That can be great since we're still small plus some competition is always nice but I also think an award would fit better since I wouldn't have to take it away.

That is true, only thing is. If everyone gets to keep the award then loads of people get it and it won't mean much (no offense) But it would lose it's value over time wouldn't you think?

Yep that could also be a problem unless we get a sudden spike of new members.

We mind end up going with either the userbar idea or a tag under your profile on all posts.

That's also true. Either way, it's a good idea. Will just take time to work out the kinks Xd

With regards to it loosing its value, i don't feel it would. Were likely to have a steady increase of users join the site and as the site gets bigger that number will go up quicker. So our level of members should out compete the number of winners. 

On the other hand, an award would mean there wouldn't be any incentive to win it again as you don't have something extra to show it off unless there were slight changes to the award icon to resemble it.

I wouldn't mind making the award a userbar either, I just want a solution that prevents me from taking an award away to give to someone else.
Yeah i wouldn't take it away, it would be an award a user keeps. But the problem is to get people to keep entering after they've won cause some people will loose motivation after they have as they don't gain anything. You would have to make slight variations of the Userbar or Award to represent how many times someone has won it (bit like COD does with prestige level) so people still have something to aim for.

Which is exactly why it will probably have to be removed and given to someone else, kind of like a rotation.

A fight to keep the title.

Changes wouldn't have to be that different, like use Roman Numerals to represent how many wins going up to 10. It will be a while before someone gets 10 wins especially when the site grows and more members enter.

That would require me to create 5-10 different groups depending on how many wins we decide to add.

Or a plugin. MyBB doesn't have any built-in core options to handle that.

Oh i didn't realise you would have to create groups to have a user bar, thought its just a cosmetic thing you add

It's certainly possible...but would it be worth adding that many.

Maybe just 3 or 5? People have given different options so go with whatever you believe works best and is convenient for you :)

If I do decide to go with a tier like system as you proposed it would be 5 instead of 10.

Yeah that sounds good! 5 wins will still take people a while to hit especially as the community grows :)

My feelings are mixed about this. Half of me would like this, but the other half doesn't want this. As some users may become upset that they lost the contest, then one of the following things could happen.

A). They could be upset, and think they are trash at GFX. (Don't worry buddy, you're not.)

B). They leave the forum, because they get butt-hurt about loosing the contest.

C). They do something stupid, Wage I think you know what I mean.

That is bound to happen eventually regardless. For example, another could feel he deserved the Contributor award more than a member that was given it. So yes, this does apply to just about everything in life.

I won't be too quick to assume this will happen anytime soon, so we'll look forward to the best. When the time comes and something like this does happen, we will take the necessary action to handle it responsibly.

Yeah, make sure you think long and hard on it. 
Hehehe I need to go to bed... I have been drinking to much.

I want to make our very first installment of DOTW either today or tomorrow sometime but we've gained a few more members recently.

I'd like to hear the input of those that haven't had a chance to comment.

Another question for those that have already voted...should I make this a monthly thing instead of weekly? This gives artists enough time to submit their work which also opens the option for artists to replace their submission with an even better one if they decide to give it another go before the contest ends. IMO this also makes the award more valuable so we may be making this a monthly thing instead of weekly.

Yeah i agree with you there! Monthly would be good, especially as it fixes the whole being valuable thing which i think was a issue that was brought up before.

Yep + this way will allow me to award the winner without having to do some unnecessary heavy editing, don't ask.

I think monthly, pretty sure I have already stated that before though. 

Anyways, as you stated the members, will have plenty more work time, to work on there projects.
