Well at least these can be handled by moderators and not with the confirmation of an administrator.

Where did you hear that? Admins (aside from Creech who has temporary privileges) are the only ones that have ever handed out any awards, regardless of what they were for.

Maybe it's just because it's new, but I prefer the 2500 posts award to the 5000 posts one.

Creech's powers are temporary? Does that mean Minty will be back and take his place?

Certain temporary admin privileges, to add awards, change staff, move forums, etc. Whenever Minty comes back he'll probably (unfortunately...) be reverted back to supermod privileges. Unless there's something the staff isn't telling us (fingers crossed).

I do as well, but that may be because green is a favorite color of mine. :P

Anyhow, these new awards look fantastic! I think the graphics team did a terrific job with making these! My favorite one is probably the 35,000 posts since it is so colorful; I wonder when someone would be able to get enough posts to earn that one!

Indeed. And only 9 people have it at time of writing. (Probably gonna raise soon.) 19 people have that overrated red one. Rarer = better.

I like that this site doesn't promote spamming or double posts either.... that's actually something that can get you an infraction. On my boxing forum, you can post 20 times in a row and nobody will do anything.

Maybe in another 10 years someone will reach that. But with off topic not counting towards your posts it may take longer.
