Admins can create award categories and awards for people and mods can distribute them through the MCP, but I'm pretty sure it's just a test at the moment.

As for dice, nobody really needs them, they're just cool. :lol:

Ya, the dice are there for anyone to make use of them in their various forum games and things like that.

The medals are still being feeled out for how we'll use them, but they're looking to be a combination of achievements and awards.

I was more wondering how they are supposed to be used?

I don't get them.

What does 1d2 mean? Why did I get a result of 1. Why not 7? Why not Bacon? Mmm. Bacon?

I'm confused! And I'm a mod in the forum games! I should know this so I can abuse the system
provide a funner and more engaging environment for all the little kids.

The first number is the number of dice to be rolled. In your example it's 1. The second number is the number of sides on the die being rolled. In your example it's 7.

So 1d7 is like rolling 1 7 sided die. In your case, it happened to land on 1.
