The achievement pic awards are for submiting new acheievement pictures that you have found or unlocked for various games on the main page that were not already known.

I still kinda dont understand but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

On the homepage, where we have all the achievements for every game- the pictures that are asscoiated with the achievements

Wooden Foot
01-26-2007, 11:15 AM
so I should get pics of achievements that I get, from every game....Just still in the dark sorry for being retarded.

Minty
01-26-2007, 11:39 AM
No- its people that find the pictures of the achievements before they are released- from testers accounts etc

HUH ?? i am getting confused

Webb

Chances are people won't find new games. But when we find a new game we get the tiles on the frontpage. Then when someone unlocks it, looks on the frontpage to see whether it has been submitted, if not, they submit the picture. Let me show you an example....

Pre Achievement Collection - http://www.xbox360achievements.org/home/images/Retail/196/0zc8P2Ni.jpg

After it has been submitted - http://www.xbox360achievements.org/home/images/Retail/196/0Tc8P2Nh.jpg

**Note - The pics in the example are not the same. It's just so I didn't have to find the original. The point is the coloured tile**

i get all of this part i just dont know where to find the pics and whenever iseem to submit a pic or something it is never put on the site or i never get credit

Webb
01-27-2007, 10:00 PM
Thats because someone will have submitted them before you or they were not genuine XBox.com tiles.

People use MGC, have people's gamercards saved (i.e. developers, etc), have come across people who have played a new game, it's just all about having mad searching skills :p

Wooden Foot
01-29-2007, 02:41 PM
I think I get it now....thnx yallz

so like these: http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n169/WoodenFoot/cd18.png
http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n169/WoodenFoot/cd06.png
so does this mean that you have to have unlocked the achievement your self?
what about achievements that no one can get???
like the game master off of smash tv???

You dont have to get it yourself, you just have to find someone that does...

Basically, if you search the front page. There are many pictures that are black and white. These have not yet been unlocked or submitted. If you can find or get those and submit them, you will get credit, and points towards your award.

Wooden Foot
01-29-2007, 04:18 PM
the pics I posted above are grey on the front page, so i submitted them to the submit thread. I didnt submit the smash tv one but the 2 crackdown ones I think are good, on the front page list they are still black and white....

Im a Manatee
01-29-2007, 10:54 PM
Those pics are very small. Where did you get them..

Maka
01-29-2007, 11:17 PM
Whats the point of asking when we all know where they are from. Dont Submit pictures that arent official. They must be from Xbox.com.

DJzero

How long does it take to get added when you do get a Member Award?

Wooden Foot
01-30-2007, 08:20 PM
the pics I posted are now up on the front page so whats the deal?

Maka
01-30-2007, 10:41 PM
You stole those pictures from another site. You may not see the difference, but they are different. We do not accept people who steal images from other sites. The pictures must be official Xbox Pictures..

RoutineX
01-30-2007, 10:47 PM
The pictures were added by other people who submitted the real images from xbox.com.

Like Maka said... We don't accept pictures that are taken from other websites.

Wooden Foot
01-30-2007, 11:04 PM
I was unsure about the whole deal I didnt really steal them I was never told how the thing works in full, but thank you very much.

magictroll
01-30-2007, 11:15 PM
Ok then, how about...

http://i50.photobucket.com/albums/f314/DaWebbmeister/X360A/LEGO6.jpg was replaced by http://tiles.xbox.com/tiles/-9/cY/0oCLiGJhbC9AFQRsXFJRGEQxL2FjaC8wLzQAAAAA5+fn-TfX5A==.jpg

You guys, Wooden Foot is just trying to help the site out... and he didn't know the rules.

Minty

He took them from another achievement site tho- thast the problem!!

Wooden Foot
01-30-2007, 11:48 PM
I was never instructed where to get the pics until I already posted them, sorry for being a thief.

Heart Braden
01-31-2007, 12:00 AM

True, but I'm just saying, don't give him a hard time about it, he's just trying to help out.

Minty
01-31-2007, 12:07 AM
We appreciate that- but we cant knick the picgtures- thats all im saying.

Heart Braden
01-31-2007, 12:17 AM
Yeah, I understand... Xbox.com official pictures only.

Maka
01-31-2007, 02:58 AM
Wooden... Try looking here:
www.mygamercard.net

Keep following the links until you get the the persons profile on xbox.com

Wooden Foot
01-31-2007, 11:14 AM
yeah i looked there first but I didnt come up with any thing. I'll keep trying tho, thnx

DJzero

**cough**

Any answer? I'm still waiting for my little dollar sign. :confused:

Wooden Foot
02-08-2007, 12:08 AM
Yeah I submited 3 pics today and they are now posted, if they used my pics and not some one elses. How long until I see my rewards???

Minty
02-08-2007, 12:46 PM
Seriously, this is the busiest week in the sites history, and we are an admin down.

If we used your pics, you will be rewarded - when we get the chance

Wooden Foot
02-08-2007, 03:00 PM
Thats cool I was just wondering? Who ever did the write up on the FP, mentioned a few names thanking them for there submissions I was one of them....

Sotaco
02-08-2007, 06:22 PM
A long time ago i send like 5 cod3 pics, they appeared at the front page but i never got the reward, now i know what happened, you use someone else's pics (Hate that guy)

DaKing240
02-08-2007, 06:27 PM
We really have our hands full this week...

If you made a donation, please make sure that your User Name is somewhere evident... otherwise we have no idea who we are giving an award to.

If you sent in a picture, you will get the award... however, its on a first come, first serve. If someone sent the award in earlier, then they will get credit.

We also have some other cool awards in the process of being made :)

Wooden Foot
02-08-2007, 06:47 PM
hell yeah I got one....nice

Eternal Prince
02-13-2007, 12:26 PM
Is the site still really busy? If so fair enough. Im just asking because Wooden Foot has got his award for sending in a picture, and i sent in one too and was mentioned on the front page for it.

Minty
02-13-2007, 12:39 PM
Try sending a PM to RoutineX. He deals with that side of stuff. Must have missed it in the rush

Eternal Prince
02-13-2007, 12:40 PM
Ok will do. Thanks Minty.

Eternal Prince
02-13-2007, 01:32 PM
Sorry about this, but what do i say to him? I thought it was Webb who did the awards not Routine?

Minty
02-13-2007, 01:45 PM
Me and Webby do the majoriy of the awards, Routine does the Donation and Submitter ones. Hes the one that does them normally, and does them at the same time normally

Eternal Prince
02-13-2007, 03:24 PM
Ohh that explains it. Thanks again!

Walcherina
02-21-2007, 01:54 PM
To submit a picture, should I send it in a pm to Routine?

Webb
02-21-2007, 02:10 PM
Or post a new thread in the submit board (generally the preferred option to be honest) :)

Adam Miller
02-21-2007, 09:17 PM
Is there a way we can see all the achievements that the site needs rather than having to check game by game?

Walcherina
02-21-2007, 11:09 PM
Also, what is a way to find the pictures for secret achievements?

Butters
02-22-2007, 02:40 AM
I don't think there is a way to get secret achievements that no one has gotten...unless you talk to developers or something, King would know about that.

Walcherina
02-22-2007, 03:48 AM
But even if someone has one, it still shows up as a ? on xbox.com.

Adam Miller
02-22-2007, 10:12 AM
Is there really not a way to view all of the sites needed achievements on one page on the front page preferably, i remeber there being something like that before.:confused:

Spot2009
02-27-2007, 01:12 AM
Unfortunately not. I actually never remember the site having that. It probably did on the old homepage.

Anyway, how long does it take for awards to update? I just noticed lots of people w/ the 1000 players online NBA award. Is it done by admins? Or automated? I was just wondering because I know I submitted achievement pictures for 10+ games and still have the silver one :P Though I know you guys are busy now (and have been for a while).

Walcherina
02-27-2007, 03:01 AM
They usually update it every 2-3 days

RoutineX
02-27-2007, 10:25 AM
When someone submit a picture to the site, I always check for the award and add it if they don't have it. Not sure why you havent gotten the last submitting award Spot2009. I'll fix that =)

The NBA 1k users achievement is manually. I think we're gathering gamertags from the different room leaders/creators. Webb would know more about that =)

Minty
02-27-2007, 10:46 AM
Whoever hosted the room you went in should have made a note of your gamertag, and will inform Webby.

If you dont have it soon, just drop either the room host or Webby a PM ;)

RoutineX
02-27-2007, 01:00 PM
I wrote a quick script that lists the games we're missing achievements in:
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/home/showmissing.php

I'll update it very soon so it includes how many achievements we're missing (and possibly lists the specific achievements).

Adam Miller
02-27-2007, 03:22 PM
Any chance we can get something like this posted on the front page as a quick list to missing achievements?

Blue Spatula
02-27-2007, 06:25 PM
Im not sure if this is the right thread but i was wondering if i get the nba 07 award. I was there supporting the site on the 25

Walcherina
02-27-2007, 11:16 PM
You have it

Walcherina
02-27-2007, 11:38 PM
So if a different achievement website has some pictures that you guys don't have here, you won't accept them if the pictures are taken off that site?

Webb
02-27-2007, 11:40 PM
Definitely not. Must be genuine XBox.com tiles or straight from the developer :)

Walcherina
03-01-2007, 09:49 PM
A list of all games without achievement guides would be nice as well :p

UndeadReaper
03-02-2007, 01:49 AM
is there any way to see the total of achievement pics that you have gotten credit for i know i have 1 but just want to be able to tell my total so far

Eternal Prince
03-03-2007, 04:43 PM
Are you guys still handing out the online with 1000 people award for Nba Live 07? Because i havent got mine yet and i spent hours in IMports lobby.

Nick G 42390

Alright, I decided to come post this in here over making a new thread.

I was looking through the awards and I noticed one that nobody has yet and I was just wondering why. Here it is:

A++ Thread - This user has put an impressive amount of effort in to a thread that helps the users on the site.

So, how come no one has this award anymore? What are the qualifications for it? A more detailed qualification rather than the one in the description. Thanks.

Webb
10-21-2007, 09:23 PM
It's pretty much, an awesome, really impressive thread that will help people greatly with an aspect of some game.

Why does no one have it? No threads have been nominated for it yet, but we do intend to give it out.

Nick G 42390
10-21-2007, 09:32 PM
Alright, cool. Thanks for answering that Webb!

DaWebbmeister and Murbay should recieve this award for their outstanding contributions in the 'Blue Dragon' forums.

Nick G 42390
10-21-2007, 09:46 PM
I was thinking that maybe whoever writes a very very good guide for The Orange Box would be eligible seeing as how it has 99 achievements in it. I think a guide that shows you how to get every achievement for a game that has 99 achievements is a great thread that will contribute alot.

If you want that badge get to it ;)! I can see your point, 99 achievements is just a crazy amount. That's what i was getting at though without Murbay or Webbs help in the Blue Dragon forum, i think a fair few of us would have missed things let alone be left asking more questions.

Adam Miller
10-21-2007, 10:09 PM
I think theres a few threads that could be nominated since that award started. Maybe there should be something in the red room like a thread where people can suggest or recommend a thread starter that they think deserves the award so the mods and admins can check it out. :)

Not to sound to much like a NeWB but whats the red room? I have heard it mentioned many times before but never really grasped the concept of what exactly it is.

I would write a guide for the orange box, but I don't play Team Fortress 2 and wouldn't be able to give tips on it.

If I submitted a guide without those achievements, could someone else submit the TF2 ones? Would that be allowed?

Chilidog Chaos
10-22-2007, 12:42 AM
I can write an TF2 guide. I've played it enough to know what to do.

Webb
10-22-2007, 12:55 AM
There is already a Orange Box guide :p

And it's really good. I'll have a chat with the staff to go through the forums and look for some out standing efforts. Feel free to PM a mod with any suggestion :)

How do you submit the pics? Find them on Xbox.com, copy the gifs, and message them?
