A relatively long time ago (January 2011, to be exact) I asked Don if there was a place to see where all of the bling that DPC members award could be browsed, but unfortunately there wasn't. For the last 10 days or so, I spent a fair amount of my own time designing and making a new virtual ribbon gallery, and this is now complete. And it works beautifully.

Please try it out and let me know what you think. The link is below:

The features of the site are enumerated in its FAQ, but you can browse by awarder of bling, recipient of bling, you can filter by challenge, view random galleries and order by the latest awarded images.

To any bling-givers that want to be added to the list, please follow the directions from the FAQ! :-)

How totally awesome. What a great thing you did for us. Kudos. And thanks.

That looks good. At least I've got some of that bling even if I seem to be totally incapable of winning a 'real' ribbon.

Oh my WORD! What a wonderful program you've given us, Niall!

damn. where is the award for THIS?

Only had time for a quick check, but I found one typo on the "Recipient Page" section of the FAQ (text in link to DPC). Looks great though -- thanks!

Congatulations on a job well done, it is wonderful,

Very cool! Thanks! Will you be adding other bling? I have other bling on my profile page that other users have made. Just curious....
02/02/2016 12:51:20 AM · #12
That's pretty cool and kind of you to do it. Thanks!

A wonderful gift to the community, this is where I will go to check what's hot, no more jumping immediately to the last page of a challenge to find a decent image, your a star. Thank you.

Thank you Sir! It is pure awesomeness.
02/02/2016 04:28:38 AM · #15
Thanks for the kind feedback! :-)

Hipychik - yes! Hoping to get it all on there. To see how to get it on, see the first item in the FAQ.

GeneralE - will fix the typo. Good catch.

I also forgot to give credit where it is due and to thank my beta testers for trying out the the initial version and giving new ideas. Danke.

The recipe for my system to detect an awarded ribbon is (say for example posthumous'):
1) browse his most recent comments
2) for all comments that contain one of his ribbons, parse the details and add to my database.

Addition of bling from forums is not (yet?) supported. It's not impossible, but it is messier.

Appreciate your efforts Niall :)

Your very own personalised gallery:

Maybe here would be a good place to be added, actually.

02/02/2016 10:25:20 AM · #23
I have to admit, Niall, this is pretty cool. Thanks for putting in the effort on it. I can spend some time browsing it.
02/02/2016 10:45:38 AM · #24
You posted two of mine that are in the Posthumous gallery that I didn't even have on my page! More bling that I didn't realize I had! Yay!!!

Fantastic job and so useful.
Do we have to remember the link or will it be part of the DPC header?
I am in awe of what you did!
