An explanation for some that seem to generate a majority of the questions....

  • For those that have wrecked and totaled their 355 and rebuilt it.
The Purple Heart medal is for those that have wrecked AND totaled their Colorado or Canyon. This means that the insurance company has deemed your vehicle not fit to be rebuilt, not because the thing was totally smashed up. Then, you rebuilt it. This is a loyalty type award.


  • Lifetime Contributing Member - Purchasing the Lifetime membership for 355Nation.net
For the Lifetime Contributing Member award, it is simply an upgraded award. You contribute, you get the Contributing Member Award; if you purchase the Lifetime Membership, your Contributing Member medal will be replaced with the Lifetime Contributing Member medal.


  • Skitz Award - Awarded to a member for helping another individual with no personal gain.
In order to earn the Skitz Award, you have to be nominated for 5 different things. If 5 members all nominate you for helping with Joe Blow's lift, you do not qualify. If you are nominated by 5 other members for different things (something like: doing a lift, helping someone drop their truck, going out of your way to pick something up for someone, shipping parts to another member to get their truck running, and helping an old lady across the street*) you will be eligible for the award. You cannot request it for something you have done, that defeats the purpose and point of the award. If you feel that someone deserves the award, me with their screen name and what they did and why that was substantial. I will keep track of how many nominations there are.

-Also, this award can be earned for going WAY above and beyond the normal call of duty. In order for the above criteria to be waved, the reasoning behind this must be truly selfless when nominating an individual. BUT, you still cannot request this medal for yourself.

The * is also a joke since I couldn't come up with a last thing...


  • 355 Medal of Honor - The highest 355Nation decoration which is bestowed on a member who distinguishes him- or herself as a member worthy of such an honor. Awarded to those that have made a significant impact on the member's of 355Nation.net as well as the site itself.
This award is a nomination based award as well. If you feel someone is deserving of this, then pm myself with the reason. Once received, I will put it up before the 355Nation Staff and the overall decision will lie in their hands as to whether the member qualifies for this award.


  • 100K Mileage Award - Awarded to those that have 100,000+ miles on their truck.
  • 200K Mileage Award - Awarded to those that have 200,000+ miles on their truck.
We now have 100k and 200k mileage awards. In order to earn this award, you must take a picture of your current odometer reading with proof that it is your truck. In order to do this, you can put your user name on a piece of paper or write it on your hand or something, just validate the picture as authentic. Also, for our Canadian members, 160,000 kms = 100,000 miles and 320,000 kms = 200,000 miles.

Once you have the pictures, send it to a staff member via pm or post it in this thread and we will hook you up with it.

Re: 355Nation.net Award System - New awards added!! November 11, 2010

FYI to all...

The awards have been slightly revamped with a new one being added. You can check out the first post of this thread to see all of the available awards and their requirements.

Just want to let everyone know that I have made it possible to show multiple earnings of some awards to include:

TOTM


Calendar Spread


Good Samaritan


Also, with the upcoming changes that will be made to the contribution system, I have added an award for the members that purchased the Lifetime Membership at the original cost prior to November 1, 2010.



As I find the time and information out, I will award those individuals that have earned these.

For the calendar award, rather than requesting them from me via this thread or pm, follow this link and do as the first post says.
http://www.355nation.net/forum/site-announcements-info-suggestions/38069-were-you-featured-nation-calendar-post-up-here-but-read-my-post-first.html
How about something like this for organizing more then one super meet? :shrug:

Re: 355Nation.net Award System - New awards added!! November 11, 2010

Problem with that is that you can easily organize more than 4 meets. Basically, I would run out of ways to customize the award to fit how many times someone has hosted a large meet. I know a few guys would already have a 3 spot...

Though, I might be able to do it so that the 3rd or 4th is the max achievement. :shrug:

I'll look into it.

That's a good idea, maybe make another award for the 5th one some the guys have a goal to reach and it will encourage more meets?

Re: 355Nation.net Award System - New awards added!! November 11, 2010

Actually, that is a good idea.. a secondary award that is earned at 5 meets, then 10 and so on.

I like that idea a lot man. :thumbup:

I'll work on it over the next couple weeks since I am going to be busy. :thumbup:

Re: 355Nation.net Award System - New awards - 14Sep11

Alright guys, I have updated this with current descriptions.

To note: The Purple Heart has been changed. You simple total your truck and rebuild it (if you are unclear, I have written the descriptions up there in the second post for some of the more perplexing awards.)

If you total and buy another, that will fall under the Loyalty award.

Re: 355Nation.net Award System - New Award: 1-11-12

Alright, the MTS pushed to get an update to these and it was a much needed one.

We now have a new award, the How-To Contribution medal. Earn this by building a how-to that is approved through our Member's Technical Staff. Once approved and posted, this one belongs below your name!

  • How-To Contributing Member award - Building an approved how-to for the Nation and it's members.


The Contributing member medal has been altered so that it is awarded to those that purchase the Premiere membership. Everyone that has it prior to today will keep it.

Also, if we missed you in the initial issue, post up.
