    Angry? I'm sorry, I wasn't aware that one could not post a negative opinion of a forum feature.

    Look, if you don't accept the darn trophies, migs and megs of data are going to be wasted in attempt to find the runner-ups. Maybe they'd be more grateful for the opportunity to compete and place 2nd as "First Post!".

    I agree it's not a needed feature. Especially since at the current time it doesn't even seem to be working properly (@arn himself is the only one with more than 13 points).

    # of posts and # of likes is good enough for me.

    It seems like it's working as arn is probably the only one at this point with enough likes to warrant more than the initial 13 points that many have once they have 25 likes.

    I like the trophy feature although I wish it was working properly. I also was awarded a trophy for my "first" post. Lol.

    Is there a place to look one up its own trophies except the user profile overlay?

    I thought it was silly myself but not enough to complain about it. Haters gonna hate (and let everyone around them know about it).

    As the leader of the trophy board, I can vouch for their importance, as they demonstrate how the cream rises to the top.

    That's my humble opinion.

    Thanks.

    Modesty prevents me from blowing my own trumpet, so it's good to have trophies highlighting our glorious posts.

    Like any of the features in the new forum, we have people who like them and those that don't. Arn provided a soliution for the OP if doesn't wish to partake. Personally, its not something I'm all that jazzed up about, but I can why some folks may like them :)

    Can trophies be transferred? If some don't like them and others do like them, maybe those who don't like them could donate them for the less poor.

    What is really funny is they took my 13 Trophy point away when I got banned for getting into an argument with another. Seems a little petty to me, but I could care less. They can keep their trophy points . just bring back the vote down button!

    No Trophies were removed due to moderation. All trophies were wiped out when some system changes occurred. It was I believe unintended and the admins are looking into the situation.

    Everyone's trophy points are gone, not just your's. Click on any username and you'll see that.

    I had 28 before the points were removed, and I still think it was a useless feature. Maybe the new ones will change my mind.

    I would rather have a vote down button. Something useful!
