    I have a small community and I want to award trophies for every 100 posts. Let's say 1 point for every 100 posts. I've tested the trophy system and I don't see how I can go about. I believe that I have to create a trophy for 100, 200, 300, 400, and so on.
    I have users who wrote around 8000 posts, so that means I have to create around 80 rules.
    Is there a way to give trophies for every N posts? If not, is there a resource that can do just that?

    I took a different approach to this. Rather than awarding a trophy for every X posts, I award them at specific post counts. Initially the post count jumps are quite small and then get larger, as do the trophy point values.

    1 - 1 point
    5 - 5 points
    10 - 10 points
    25 - 15 points
    50 - 20 points
    100 - 30 points
    250 - 40 points
    500 - 50 points
    1000 - 60 points
    2000 - 70 points
    3000 - 80 points
    4000 - 90 points
    5000 - 100 points
    6000 - 110 points
    7000 - 120 points
    8000 - 130 points
    9000 - 140 points
    10000 - 150 points

    I figured that those who are likely to achieve the higher post counts are more prolific posters, so rather than frequently spam them with trophies they have to work a little harder to get them and then get more of a sense of achievement when they do. Also each trophy has a unique title.

    Hi, Martok, we want to do the exact same thing on our forum. How did you execute this? I already set up the trophy system and I don't recall an ability to award a trophy for post counts. Any help would be great, thanks!

    You can award trophies based on post counts, it's a standard feature built in to Xenforo.

    When creating a trophy, in Award This Trophy if... just set the condition User has posted at least X messages as appropriate for each trophy.

    Okay, thank you, Martok. Yes, it's there I just overlooked it. :p
