All submissions for new trophies for our new community have been received. A panel of judges has reviewed all that were sent in based on creativeness, viability, fit with the Tom's theme, fun, and achievement. The best and the brightest are arrayed below for you to cast your vote on throughout the next 7 days. The winner at the end of the voting period will win a $100 Amazon Gift card (and bragging rights), and the top 3 trophies will be implemented here in the forums. Note: Where visuals lacked, they have been added. Where How was not possible due to system criteria, it has been adjusted.

More trophies to collect, "Knows their stuff" would be an auto award for many on charts now.

Funny how 2 of the suggestions are from me, I can't enter or at least win based on where I am from, those were free suggestions :)

You should have way more than just that one Dark Lord :)

Personally, I don't think any new trophies are needed. More important is the ability to easily spot unanswered questions like the "Answer this" on the old forums. For older people with failing eye sight the new forums are difficult to spot the unanswered questions.

More important than pampering our egos is just being able to easily spot the questions needing assistance. Just my 2c worth

themes are being created that may fix your problem. I doubt trophy creation is being done by some person making themes.

I have to wear glasses to read forum now and the bold/non bold thing is pretty obvious on my PC. Yes, it could be better but its not a complete fail. Lets not take this off topic here though.
 
Hmmmm......

Have not recieved all of the old trophies yet and we are voting for new ones.

Interesting(got chance to vote for a new one) and disappointing(taking more time than expected to transfer all the trophies from old forum to new one).

The old trophies need to be recreated here before they can be fixed, so opening up the idea for new trophies while they are creating the old ones as well isn't a bad idea.

I don't know anything about the progress regarding old trophies.

Creating new trophies is not bad idea at all and having open discussion about it without limiting to mods and higher officials is really great.

Thing is that it is taking bit longer than expected. Probably because there were even more important issues which needed to be resolved first like slow-down of forum(got solved thankfully still my ping is higher than before but not as worse as it was when the forum slowed down).

I hope trophies get sorted out in a week or two at max.

Knows your stuff is deceptive, it looks easier to get than it actually is.

While it is not that hard to get 500 Best Answers, that 10k TP is going to take a while and you likely be closer to 1500 BA before you achieve it.
