I just made it from PL9 to PL8 this season and I now have the "8" badge on my team page (I also received a QT catch ticket). When I look at various team pages I see badges like "8", "7", etc. Do you get a badge each time you level up to a higher PL? Also, what is that "9 star" badge and the "10 spinning star" badge? Is there a site where you can see all these badges?

Also do you get a prize every time you move up a league? For example, if this season I drop back to PL9 (hope not) and then make it back to PL8 the next season do I get a prize again. Nope, I'm not greedy, I'm just curious. Oh yes, and can I use the ticket on any team or just the one that received the prize????? :)

Thanks.

Max.

I think it was BasPilot that used to have the great Sticky about this.

The PL badge symbolizes the highest PL that you've been to (whether it be 8th, 1st, or whatever). You get a QT gift every time you reach a PL that you've never reached before (except for Jr League). So, if you were to get sent back down to Jr, and then surge back up to 8th the next season, you wouldn't get anything new, just a whole new schedule in 8th league.

The 9* and 10* badges simply mean that at one point in the team's career, it has reached 9 or 10* status. Some teams that haven't been retired and have instead been left to rot only appear as 1*, and the badges show that they weren't like that all the time.

As far as I know there isn't a site persay, but you can find your way around and see all the badges, and hopefully figure out what they mean.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the fast response GCool.. I appreciate it. Can you use the gift only on the team that earned it or on any of your teams. Also, are the gifts always QT tickets or others (not that I'm complaining mind you)... I love all gifts!

You can use a QT that you got for advancing on any team you want , and your prize for advancing is always a QT ticket , unless you were the top 3 in PL1 , they receive 3 QTs , 2 balance tickets I believe and I forget what else lol ;D

I never received anything when I finished 2nd in PL1. I did have email, and the team was mine. Hmm. Dunno.

The only thing you get for winning PL1 is a badge. :-\

You also get an automatic invite to PL1 for the next season, sitting on top of the standings before any games are even played, and you get 4 old opponents and 5 new opponents all chasing your tail. Must be one of the best feelings this game can give you; I wouldn't know.

But yeah, you get a badge too.

It it also important to note that the badges haven't been around as long as the game has been. So, its conceivable that those older teams could have made it all the way to PL1 and have no badge to show for it. So, if you are training an old ID team and there is no PL badge on it, that does not mean they haven't been there before.

Thanks for the responses and especially for the graphic.

Can you now get the "bulletin board" link to your profile on your team's page? Or was this only when the old forums were alive (the image on the extreme left in the above post)? Thanks.

nah..

alot of new players don't know about the archives.. so I like to move some of the important stuff over here hoping they'd find it easier (like the badges, etc and always with the proper credit given to the original poster, lol)

I do think newbies should visit the archives though... there is just so much useful information over there..

Yeah.. I liked that old badge.. sadly I don't think its been used in ages.

I use to know a team ID that had it attached but its been long forgotten.. :-[

"That is the Icon for someone that has linked their team and their forum name. There are instructions on how to get that here: Post by Beaner"

With regard to the Icon that looks like a bulletin board..... I clicked the link but I couln't find the instructions on how to set this up. Any suggestions?? Thanks.

That feature is currently not working.

Worked like this though:

PROFILE BUTTON ON TEAM PAGES

This is a very cool feature which allows you to identify the owner of a team by clicking on the "Profile" button on the team page. Clicking it will link you directly to that owners profile here at these forums. It's very easy to set up. Here's how:

1. Find your "Forum ID":
1a) Look to left of your posts, just below your location. You can see that my forum id# is 71.

OR
1b) Click the profile button under one of your posts. The number at the end of the URL address in your browser is your profile number. If you click mine right now you will see that mine is 71. When you click yours it will be whatever number is in the same place.
2. Open your smallball loader.
3. Click on "Settings".
4. Click on "Change Profile".
5. The bottom box is labeled "Forum ID". Enter that # in the box and click "Update". The Profile button will appear on your team page shortly. If it does not appear, then try opening and closing your trainer then looking again. Sometimes it takes the page some time to update, so be patient.

Don't know if this feature will ever be restored. It's possible. Of course the forum id#'s have changed. So it would have to be changed to reflect the current forum id's.

I have had two of my teams tie for 1st in PL1, lost the tie breaker both times, dang it. It was cool though cause my e mail said congrats on winning PL1, and both times I got a 3 pack of QT's. 8)

Sorry, when I posted that, I didn't realise that there was a second page. :-[ But I was refering to a list of team ID's in order, with who owned the team, and wether the team was active, retired, sabatical, pw lost, or deleated.

No, I believe it was just for the flag/game develpoers codes and stuff.
