Awards?

OK, We have an user called Patrick. His avatar space consists of his avatar and a picture captioned "Award: Wink". What does it mean? Can you start giving awards once again?

Re: Awards?

I have thought about that but there is one big problem.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Awards?

I had a different list for the various people but saw that no matter what you said it would just make everyone unhappy.
