    Katzenfleisch only gets blue? Would've thought of him a silver candidate.
    Also, how comes @BeigeAlert doesn't have gold yet? He's written some amazing behind-the-scenes stuff. Give that guy his medal already :P

    Other than that, congrats :)

    You don't receive a certain rank immediately unless you do something really extraordinary (iirc the last time this was done for fsfod getting NS2 running with LuaJit). Everyone has to go from blue to silver to gold ;)

    Didn't know that's a thing.
    I still think beige has done enough, though :P

    Thanks for the award! I've been off the grid for a while with Mineral, but have been working on it whenever I felt like it and had the time. Because of the small amounts of work I've put in over the last few months, there will be a new version of it released today!

    Note: there are more golds than silver although gold should be super rare.

    So we can honestly say Silver > Gold. :D

    After Squad 5 was inactive for over 2 years, a few people with the ability to dole it out did so in mass as there were years worth of people who were arguably long long overdue for the top marks.
    It was that initial flood of awards handed out that prompted me to take ahold of the program, for fear that it would continue that way and subsequently lessen the importance.
