    Netsmurf's religious conviction aside, I'd like to request a badge for the "other" mini tourney hosted by BBT. Does that work with the general sensibilities of the site Nik (or Coach, I'm not clear on who currently controls this).

    I don't think that makes sense as there is no overall CTALE winner and I don't see the point in handing out badges to lots of teams for winning 6 man mini leagues.

    CTALE has WAY more than 6 players in it.

    Where do I say that CTALE only has 6 players? :confused:

    It's made up of 6 player mini leagues. There is no CTALE champion, just different division winners who only had to play 5 matches.

    Indeed, as the clue is in the title, it is an exhibition league, not a cup. It was and remains a great way of getting match experience between Cups, but is not designed to fill a Cup format with play offs and winners.

    As a result, it would be equivalent to giving out an award for every Crunch Cup division winner, rather than those that reach the final.

    CTALE was never intended to have a final winner, so it can't get any awards. Sorry. :eek:

    I can always turn off duplicates of trophies showing up in the postbit if you guys don't stop Netsmurf winning so much!

    So pull your socks up and stop making more work for me!

    Actually Coach, because you bring it up. For the sake of presentation, are you able to turn off duplicates for mobile devices? Or make it a user selectable option?

    Did think it might be the way to go eventually, duplicates off but with a listing of each competition won if you mouse over the trophy.

    Another option could be to have something like "x2" next to a trophy that has been won twice etc. The OCC awards have something similar with the number of times an award has been won next to the award itself if the award has been won more than once.

    No, the only option is on or off for everything.

    Regarding multiples you can click through and see them on the individuals awards page. I don't think it will display a multiples icon on the postbit. I'd have to create separate trophies which just isn't practical.

    I may be able to shrink them for smaller screen sizes using css though, I'll have a fiddle when I get a moment.

    I would like an award for stunning mediocrity.

    9 Crunch Cups and only in the play offs twice, out in first round both times.

    10 OCC seasons and only 2nd place twice.

    1025 BB games and a 50% record.

    I am living proof that some people just don't master the game. That deserves some kind of recognition.

    :D
