Ranch Story Forum Medals FAQ

I've implemented somewhat of an award system to this forum. From this point on... if we, the admins, see that you've done something awesome for the community, such as unconditionally helping out members, actively post content rich posts and create quality topics... or just a great role model, we'll reward you with a Medal. Here's are samples of what the various Medals look like:

Elite Medals:

Small Medals:

We're not giving these out like hot cakes, so if you have one, feel proud, and thanks for being a great member!

You can see user's Medals by viewing one of their posts or checking out their profile and looking for "Medals".


Question: How can I get a Chick Medal?

Answer: There's really a ton of acts that come to mind, but they must not be done strictly to get a Medal. We can tell when you're "forcing" being nice or doing something strictly to get a Medal. These Chick Medals represent that you're here not only for your personal enjoyment, but NATURALLY being helpful, admirable, respected, and hard working.

Here are some ideas on what might get you a Chick Medal:

  • Being a respectable rolemodel - following rules, keeping topics on topic, etc
  • Posting new Harvest Moon info in the appropriate forums - This helps us update content on our main website.
  • Helping us enforce the rules - being our eyes and ears on the lookout for stuff we need to pay attention to.
  • Doing whatever you can to help people - Answer HM related questions members may post, etc
  • Suggesting good ideas for improvements to make the Ranch Story experience a better one.

Nothing "specific" will earn you a Chick Medal. Make us think "Wow, this person is awesome for doing this", and you'll be on the road to more Medals. Again, we can tell if you're just behaving in a way solely for the purpose of obtaining a Medal.

Question: How can I get a Feather Medal?

Answer: By donating:

$5 - $19 : Green Feather
$20 - $39 : Yellow Feather
$40 - $59 : Red Feather
$60 - $79 : Purple Feather
$80+ : Blue Feather

Or by ordering products through affiliation. See Support Ranch Story for details. You must PM us letting us know you've bought something so we can add the amount we raise to your donation count.

Question: How do I get a Rucksack?

Answer: Rucksacks are usually given when you've earned one or more Small Medals, but are also given when we see potential for you in earning more Medals.

Question: How do I get "small Medals"?

Answer: This list changes all the time, but here are the current small Medals we're giving away:
