Too many medals

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by armchair_jihad, Jul 17, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Boss

    New site takes some getting used to, so far OK apart from my new medal block arrangement making me look like even more of a Walt than I actually am, if you have a moment please tinker as I am sure I am not the only one with this problem

    I think I've already mentioned this, but it's buried deep in the other thread so I can hardly blame you for not finding it. Basically, I agree - everyone looks like a South American dictator. I've actually done quite a lot of work to try and sort this and get the medals always to appear in a set order, but so far I've failed. I will do it shortly.
     
  3. Bizarrely, on the subject of undeserved bling, I notice that the advertising bar on this thread points the reader at a company who are 'Queen's Honours Experts - Let us draft your nomination and increase your chances of success' I never knew such a parasite company existed.

    This one is really bugging me. I've hacked the code and that should change the rank order and amount, but it makes no difference whatsoever. I spent hours on it today on top of more last week. I'm going to have to read the instructions soon!
     
  5. Can I have the jubilee freebie medal on my rack please CO Sir please and my LS&GC for lasting 3 years on ARRSE without getting caught.

    Should now be sorted. It is slightly different than on the old site because first the correct 1 to 5 medals is calculated depending on the number of posts as normal. Then a single donor medal is put on the end.

    Shoulder flashes should now be in the correct place after ranks.

    I am currently having a reasonably serious 'oh my god what am I doing with my life' moment as I consider the overall importance of that work! Not something that is going to get me an obit in the telegraph that's for sure.
