Answered How do I award other people?

Recommended Posts

How would I give awards to people, and get awards? I'm just curious about that.

To view all awards, you can head to Awards page (accessed from the Forum+ submenu OR by typing in /awards at the end of URL if preferred (as in: mlpforums.com/awards)).

If at the moment there are awards available to be given to other users, these will have NEW AWARD buttons next to them. beEWGks.pngHowever, these buttons do not appear in mobile view, which often is the source of problems and confusion from users' side. "Giveable" awards usually, if not always, are related to events, so the Forum Events section is the first place you'll most likely be notified, that there are awards to be given. It would be best if Event Coordinators would include a direct link to give someone an award in the opening posts, but if no links are provided and you happen to use a mobile device, feel free to ask for one in the thread and someone will eventually post one, whether users or staff.

Other than that, there are awards, that you obtain for participating in events - answering the trivia questions, for example. Some of the awards have notes related to how to obtain them in their descriptions if you'd like to view some examples.

Can you take a screenshot of where they are / the button I need to press? I can't find it.

I'm not certainly sure to what exactly you're referring to, so from the beginning:

GOING TO AWARDS
PC

MOBILE

Open the user menu in the upper right corner then tap Forum+

-and tap Awards

Categories will be displayed and Event Badges usually have the ones, that users can give to each other.

 

Now on the list with awards there will be NEW AWARD buttons next to ones, that can be given:

PC

MOBILE - Medium (Tablet) View

There's no button. What's more, the "Awarded" counter seems to be bugged.

MOBILE - Small (Phone) View

No button; No "Awarded" counter.

If your mobile browser supports displaying sites in 'pc version', you can try switching to that one to be able to see these buttons on mobile. For example, Chrome allows you to switch to desktop version in the upper right menu, it's just a matter of ticking on/off an option on the fly.

 

If you can see a proper number in the Awarded counter (using large view) and you don't see a button to give a badge, then it isn't available to be given.

That solves my issue. Thank you so much! I'm surprised I didn't see it before.
