- What are the criteria categories that can be used for trophies, e.g., post count, the number of likes received, the number of likes given, the age of the forum account? (Is there a comprehensive list that details this?)
- I would like there to be trophies awarded for post content length -- meaning that the value of content length would be a calculated result after filtering out "stop words" and words that are three characters or less. (In other words, when users post content 50 words or greater, they get +1 . Posted content < 50 words would result in nothing being added.)
- Is a trophy a static "one-time" event -- meaning that once a trophy is earned, the conditions of possibility leading up to the trophy no longer are counted? If post count led to receiving the reward of a poster's trophy, for example, then the trophy cannot be lost when if the particular user do not post any more?
- Or is the trophy system also "variable" -- meaning that certain conditions must be met, continually, in order to keep a trophy in possession? For example, a trophy would not be given on post count alone (which is a one time, "meet the threshold" criteria), but would be given on the condition that the user makes at least 10 posts per month -- if the condition is met at any point in time, then award the trophy -- if the condition is not met at any point in time, then remove the trophy).
I suppose what these questions come down to is being able to know the extent that I can interact with the software in a custom manner. For example, can I make certain trophies conditional on group, while at the same time making groups conditional on individual and social performance?
I apologize if this post comes off as confused. Maybe I'm just a little bit confused about Xenforo's power and customization potential.
