ThriftyFun awards achievement medals to the most prolific authors on the site. Awards are given for those who post the most articles, crafts, or recipes, and to those who submit the most comments or answer the most questions. Each author's highest medal is shown on their byline throughout the site and their highest current medals are shown on their profile page.
Medals are given out each month for contributions during the month, each year for contributions during the year, and for all time contributions. The chart below shows how many posts, comments, or answers are required to earn each medal. Note that answer medals are based on the same eligibility used for the answer contest with a bonus point for best answers.
If you don't think your totals are correct please double check whether you are using the same username. If you have changed email addresses or login method you may have two or more accounts. Contact Us to get your accounts linked. Please try to include either a list of email addresses or an example of an article that isn't linked to your current account.
Achievements medals are intended to reward frequent contributors with recognition and to lend credence to their comments and answers but do not come with any cash or gift card rewards.
