    If reach 500 "likes" you will get 30 points. But if someone "unlikes" you when you have already gotten those 30 points (that makes you 500-1=499 likes) Will the Trophy points be reduced or not?

    No. Once Trophy points are awarded, they will not be rescinded (even if the criteria for those points change). The only exception is that they can be manually adjusted by a Moderator in dramatic circumstances.

    Note that although the Trophy system is a default part of the Xenforo forum software, it is intended for general forums - where most activity would be within the public threaded message sections (i.e. the "Welcome," "Mekorama," and "Other" forums in our case). It was also intended to encourage positive activity and recognize outstanding members.

    In our case, the vast majority of activity is within the Media Gallery (Levels section). This is an add-on to Xenforo that doesn't work with the Trophy system. It therefore does not have the same utility, and thus most members don't concern themselves with it.

    That being said, we can adjust the points awarded and thresholds required to some degree. So if anyone has ideas on how to improve it, we're open to suggestions. ;)

    Thanks @nGord!

    One suggestion:

    We need to post 1000 messages in order to accomplish trophy 'Addicted'. However, even the one who posts the most messages - @nGord, has not been able to accomplish it yet (550+ messages VS 1000 messages!). Therefore, I think this trophy's threshold is too high and it's unrealistic.

    I think its threshold should be changed to 200 or 250 messages instead of 1000 messages. What do you think?

    Agreed! Fixed! "Addicted" is now triggered at 250 messages.
