Hey Guys and Gals We've been hard at work, being our usual awesome selves, and coming up with new ways to make things better and concocting new excuses to give out pretty shiny awards to decorate your showcases with.

It is with great pleasure that I announce we have succeeded at both, yet again! (because we're awesome)

Hooray!! *insert fanfare and cheers of a roaring populace*

We've made some tweaks to the GreenBook and rolled out some gorgeous awards to go with it courtesy of the ever fantabulously amazeriffic Gackt. (he's so awesome he deserves 2 made up words)

Bronze for 3

Silver for 6

Gold for 10

Platinum for 15

Emerald for 20

Diamond for 30


They're GreenThumbs... For the GreenBook. Get it? Get it? Soooo Punny, HAHWHAHHahhahahaHahha..ha..ha... ha... Ok so maybe I'm the only one that loves puns that much... <.< >.>

Be sure to check out the "How to" thread so you can see what it's all about.

Cheers

actually, i have something worth asking

how does this affect guide/roadmap awards. say you contribute to a guide in the greenbook, do you get a +1 credit towards the green thumb award or towards the guide award, or, dare i say it, both?

Was looking forward to this announcement, was never able to figure out what it could possibly be about. NOW it all makes sense! Time to hunt the lonely guides out there.

Over 10 years ago Cypress Hill came up with a song called Dr. Green Thumb. The actual award picture is funny when you think about what Green Thumb means to a certain group of people who like to....grow plants.

That's Mickey Mouse thumbs up! Since there is 1 less finger.
