So this is an odd idea but I thought I'd share it anyways
Ok so right now in some contests the awards are points (which we use to buy amazing virtual books), I was wondering if it'd be interesting to have some books (virtual, not real) that could only be won in contests and can not be purchased with points. That way if someone one win on of them it would kind of be like a medal/certificate to show that they've won a contest. And also it would make the one who wins feel special
I don't know if I explained it properly but tell me what you think!

Great idea! So, we could have different kinds of awards for different kinds of contests? If I can disable the ability to donate those kinds of items to other people, I'd be happy to do it.

Just as soon as I get photoshop for Christmas and can actually make some that look nice.

I think GeorgeMichael earlier suggested something like awards appearing in profiles. This sounds like a good way to make that happen, too.

I spoke to the guy who made the store software, and he says in the next update he's going to include awards. There were several other forum owners who liked this awards idea, Nyx.

It'd be interesting to offer prize books for contests that are really special. Say the Gutenberg Bible for a prize, since there is only one in the world, we would have only one on the site . And it would be a prize.
