    Hey,

    Love the achievements, and would love to put forth some suggestions to add to an already promising plugin.

    Firstly is displaying the Featured Image for an achievement in the user achievements tab for ourselves and others:
    http://duncsblog.com/members/mobilephone2003/achievements/

    Also displaying the Featured Image for an achievement in the shortcode for displaying the index:
    http://duncsblog.com/achievements/

    In the footer I am displaying the Photo Grid, but as it is showing "Available Achievements", can it hide the ones I have already achieved? And show them all for the logged out user?
    http://duncsblog.com

    Can a message be displayed on each achievement on my status of that achievement (green bar "Achievement Unlocked" or red bar "Achievement not yet Unlocked")?

    Some other suggestions:

    Can the Karma award be shown automatically in the post?
    Can the steps be shown automatically in the post?
    Can we have timed achievements?
    Can the modules we don't have installed be hidden from the required steps area?

    I have a bunch more, but I'll stop now as to not overload the post :P

    Hi, mobilephone2003! Thanks.

    displaying the Featured Image for an achievement in the user achievements tab

    Yep. Was planning on trying to do this for the next release.

    displaying the Featured Image for an achievement in the shortcode for displaying the index

    Same as above, but just wanted to say you don't *need* to use the shortcode for the example.com/achievements/ page -- that template should appear on that URL automagically.

    Photo grid

    Good idea. I've been thinking about iterating on the widgets in the release-after-the-next-release, so I'll keep this in mind. I've made a note: https://github.com/paulgibbs/achievements/issues/103

    Can a message be displayed on each achievement on my status of that achievement

    It could if you customise the template. If you know how WordPress templates work and know a little PHP, I can tell you how to do this.

    * Can the Karma award be shown automatically in the post?
    * Can the steps be shown automatically in the post?

    Would be nice. Again, you can build these into custom templates.

    For the core plugin, the problem is the design and the UI. Any suggestions on where to put it/what it should look like? Photoshop mockups welcome ;)

    Can we have timed achievements?

    Can you explain this idea a bit more, please?

    Can the modules we don't have installed be hidden from the required steps area?

    This almost made it into 3.4, but we found a bug: https://github.com/paulgibbs/achievements/pull/98

    Thanks for all your feedback; good questions!
