Thank you. I was thinking of Hall of Fame, then I thought of my Hmom thread. And then I thought of Honor.

Honor and Reputation (Rep) sounds great but, I prefer Honor because it is in the medieval theme of AG :D

Yes I think keeping the medieval theme is important if we want to remain an unique site.

Lemme think...

Well, the name depends heavily if you want something original or mor fantasy. Honor and rep sound good, just a bit... Boastful. I have more honor than you!

How about gold? It was very valuable back in medieval ages, and it's easy to understand.

I have thought many times about Gold but for some reason I don't like it. And the newcomers forum would be filled by people asking "how do I spend my gold?"
I still prefer honor.

Honor and rep work great, but it seems a bit unoriginal.
If AG had a name that stood out just a little more people would know what site someone is talking about just at the mention of the name of the point system. Like when someone talks about prestige you almost instantly think of Call of Duty. Just my thought, honor and reputation though sound great I like honor.

I don't see how gold would work, it doesn't have much to do with ranking of people, it seems like some sort of indirect weighing of how important someone is and it's seems a little misleading.

I prefer reputation.. or something else aside from karma, prestige, gold and honour. Rep is used on many other forums and is a reliable name. Though we should be looking for something especially suited to AG's theme.
