  • Rich Prescott edited Revision 43. Comment: Colored activities

  • Rich Prescott edited Revision 44. Comment: bolded activities to make them more prominent

  • So colorful! =^)

  • Richard Mueller edited Revision 45. Comment: For Forums Curator Comments changed "proposes answers" to "identifies answers"

  • Richard Mueller edited Revision 46. Comment: Moved "First Marked Answer" in Forums table from "Answers" Activity to "Curator". The person must identify an answer.

  • So if I am reading the Forums Curator part right, you have to mark a reply as an answer to get the achievement, not propose answers.  That means to get the achievements, you need to mark 10-50-1000 answers.  That means you either have to ask a LOT of questions or be a forum moderator.  If that is true, it should probably be marked as such.

  • Rich Prescott edited Revision 47. Comment: Merged the forums voting into the Curator achievement row.

  • Rich, I believe you are correct about the Forum Curator achievements. My reading of the FAQ suggests both "First Helpful Vote" and "First Marked Answer" are really Curator achievements, as they are now shown.

  • Rich Prescott edited Revision 49. Comment: Clarified description for Forums Curator achievements

  • Thanks Rich, very nice

  • Excellent and useful: well done, Ritch.

  • Thank you .

  • Wonder whehter anything changed with 'Wiki Achievements' with the most recent updates (noticed things changed slightly in early December). I created my first Wiki page in December (:-)) but noticed no achievement added to my profile.

    Any thoughts anyone?

  • BlueSky2010, your new Wiki article is shown in your profile (plus an edit and a comment), so the system knows about it. The achievement should have shown up, but sometimes they seem to take a few days, like a process needs run. If it doesn't show up Monday, ask in the Profile & Recognition forum

  • Thanks Richard - I'll do so.
