    Yes. Win a site run contest or contribute something particular brilliant to the community, and the Admins will give you one.

    (Getting it through contribution is a rarity, the exception rather than the rule)

    I believe just placing in the top 3 in a contest will nab you one. Right?

    Correct, any of the major contest we hold (So, STAR'S Koth contest) if you get top 3 spots you get a medal.

    You can also do something extremely notable for mapping in the community (like, Geit made the feedback system, he gets one).

    I'm probably the most notable person on the site but I don't have one, what's up with that?

    Notoriety =/= contribution.

    Besides, I've authored several tutorials, hosted gamedays for several months and helped format the site with ideas like the feature section and none of those contributed to my getting a medal.

    Booj did get one for his libraries, but then look at how many thanks he's had on that one project. Like, 600? That's had a significant impact on the mapping scene even beyond TF2maps. It makes sense he gets a Valve community medal.

    Ha ha, nah i was given one now that i'm a mod.

    And Yyler, no, your second jokey post didn't make your first sound any less semi-serious. I was just saying... contributions have to be fairly significant. Not just for you, but anyone else curious about it.

    400 Screenshots of detailed Valve map exploit feedback + 400+ Screenshots of detailed custom map exploit feedback = no medal for some silly reason.

    Well, grazr, I must say that your tutorials are the most useful ones on this website, for sure.

    However, this isn't a contest.

    And if it was, Booj would win.

    Technically I was to be awarded one for my artpass participation, Frozen was not aware I participated in it, and wanted to give me one for my pack, which he found out was unnecessary after he had already instated the "special contributions" thing. Though I do appreciate it still, as I'm definitely more proud of the pack than the map.

    So I both did win and didn't win. It would appear I have something of a schrodinger's medal.
