I was doing a little browsing on the pages of ATS and realized that I haven't been to the WATS page in a while. While examining the quality content
on the page from our top 50 members, I began to wonder if there was a way to recognize those members outside of the WATS page, perhaps a badge or a
change of color outlining their post.
After a quick search using our search feature, I found this from 2004:
Voting for the Way Above Top Secret Award
Your vote button allows you to cast three monthly votes for threads/posts you think are "Way Above" the standard fare and deny ignorance in a very
powerful or meaningful way. At the end of each month, the winner is announced and they have special "Way Above Top Secret" status for the following
month. Each member is allowed three votes per month.
Our Way Above Top Secret award winners are easy to notice... they have a giant medal in their mini-profile, and the background color of their posts
are a brighter gray than all other posts.
What ever happened to the WATS Award?
Is there a reason it is no longer active? It seems like a good idea to me. I know that the members who reach the WATS top 50 don't do what they do
for just the recognition, but a little perk would be nice, and the addition of the WATS Award would help bring out some more quality threads?
What does everyone think?
Could the WATS Award be re-established, or revamped?
