Greetings ":)

In an effort to increase the popularity and efficiency of rewarding people for what they do, the RSXO and I have created a new medal system for the club. Many new medals have been added to the mix. Although we unfortunately do not have a new medal page to show you yet, the IO has all the medals added into the database and you can see images there for now. The new medal page will hopefully be done shortly. As of now, this medal system is in effect and the new medals are all eligible to be awarded. Without further ado, here is the text description of the new system. New medals are listed with ( ) around their titles.
