Possibly an achievement for reaching Gold King?

For this one, I'm going to quote cormyn from the migration thread. The double quote is what cormyn quoted:

I think there will be legacy achievements based on AP total when AG3 comes out.

Yes, very likely. Firetail will get an exclusive achievement for having the most points, the top 10/100 all-time users will probably get an extra achievement too, that sort of thing.

We've also talked about having achievements for things like "more than 500 points", "more than 1000 points", "more than 5000 points" etc. as well.

A question, is the word "achievements" definitive? I'm not a big fan of the word and it sounds too generic. I think "medals" is the best term but that's what they already use at newgrounds. What about "trophies" or "awards"?

I think "achievements" is the right word for what we're discussing because the achievements themselves can cover lots of different stuff.

Possibly an achievement for reaching Gold King?

Since we've already stated that we'll be giving out achievements based on points, and that you need certain amounts of points to gain those ranks, then yeah we could maybe give out an achievement just for hitting gold ranks like 'gold knight' or 'gold prince' etc.

the only thing you can give us an achievement besides contribution like forum post and things like that is how long we have been active Thats all I can think of.

Most of the achievements on the site will come from the games, which I've said in another post, for things like "you've crushed 100 castles" or "you've played 100 games of Exit Path", but the game achievements will be up to the game developer to design into the game.

We'll probably start calling them 'achievements' because the word will translate well into other languages. Joey had the idea of calling them 'shields'.

Right, so if the game developer had achievements built in, he could notify the web site when you submit 100 songs, and we'll unlock that achievement for you. That's just an example.

I think the other admins prefer achievements to shields, so I don't think the achievements will be called shields. Besides, cormyn already explained why "achievements" is a better word.
