I added what (are in my opinion) improvements to your desc for the Veteran medal.

 

Repetition of MagicDuel after MD sounds weird :P

 

How about "Veteran: To mark those who have a significant amount of experience in MagicDuel, and are aware of many of its aspects/concepts and how they work"?

[spoiler]

 

Suggestions:

 

A25: A symbol of recognition of those who have used Autumn2050 tools in the past to create or implement something in the realm.

LHO:  To mark those who managed to become Live Help Operators and help new players. (kinda like the achievement)

Veteran: To mark those who have a lot of experience in MD, and are aware of most aspects and how they work.

Heads: Awarded to those who managed to achieve top positions in the Heads Contest.

Bossheads: Awarded to those who managed to win the Boss Heads Competition.

King: To mark those who have or had kingship rights over any land.

Fossil: To mark those deemed worthy of getting special mention due to still existing despite being very old players.

Forum: In charge of administrating or moderating the forum.

Art: To mark those who have shown great talent in drawing and have produced beautiful artworks for the realm.

[/spoiler]

@DD: you should also consider shorter tags.

There is simply no space for huge compositions and for obvious things (like "A symbol of recognition of those who have", "To mark those who managed to", "To mark those who have", "Awarded to those who" )

 

Try something to the point like :
Bossheads: Awarded to those who managed to win Won the Boss Heads Competition.

Fossil: To mark those deemed worthy of getting special mention due to still existing despite being Acknowledged as a very old players. / As old as a fossil.

Art: To mark those who have shown great talent in drawing and have produced beautiful artworks for the realm. Skilled in arts.

 

Anyway, here is my suggestion for the list provided by Chewett:

 

king : Royalty material.

(as it could be also queen)
writer : Skilled writer.
goldfossil : Really old player (almost dust)
goldveteran :
goldforum :
script : Can script MD.
goldlho :
mechstar : Can understand MD mechanics.
goldaward2009 : Yearly Award in 2009
award2011 Yearly Award in 2011
goldmech : Master of mechanics.
goldheads : Master of Head Competition.
goldaward2013 : Yearly Award in 2013
goldaward2014 : Yearly Award in 2014

Probably all medals:

Ideally they should be shortish descriptions, something like

script - Given to those who have achieved proficiency with MDScript demonstrated with an exceptional use of their ability.

So far, the descriptions I've read for veteran and fossil don't really match, imo.

Fossil is given during MD awards, and not necessarily to old players. Aeoshattr is 6 years old and he doesn't have one. I suppose NoOne's description of "acknowledged as an old player" fits better, even though seriously, to be acknowledged for that you should only need the account creation's date?

I'd rather go with something like "old and frequently active" as a better description, judging by the criteria for being awarded with the fossil medal?

I'm unsure on some of these as to whether they are access or skill so left them blank. Also, some are variable and some aren't, not sure which ones - presume king, lho and forum is an indicator of both current and past rather than removable?. po doesn't come up on the short codes list so don't know what language that represents & I thought Chinese had been done?

 

Aeo - nearly all of these are only given at special events or by whim, maybe there should be a short general paragraph about how these medals get awarded instead?

Well, Chew gave us an example, I think it should be like that.

 

Aeo, Fossil of the year is during MD awards, but the Fossil medal itself isn't :P

 

For vet medal, well, you're eligible Aeo of course. You don't have the medal, but that doesn't mean you're not a vet.
