When looking at the award levels (eg commuter etc) have you looked at allowing people to flick from one award to another rather than going back to the top level with all the awards and back down again to another award?

That's GB's call to make. They've done great already.

This suggestion has been added to the Suggestion Tracking List as a new subject.

The only reason I can see for having separate page for each award is the history shown for each award. Once you see the history, you probably wouldn't need to see it again, so there should be a way to bypass it and achieve the goal pilotmass is seeking. Perhaps there should be an award summary selection added to the award selection page that will have no graphics (to speed loading) and just list the latest level achieved for each of the awards. By using this selection, a member could see where he stands on all the awards without "going to the top" and without even flicking.

I can only see the iPhone version. Are the awards on all the different versions identical in layout?

How will the "flick" know which award to to go to next? What if you want to go from Commuter to Iron Man but I want to go from Commuter to Perfectionist?

Maybe I'm asking, is the one click to go back and then choosing which award you want to look at next that difficult or time consuming versus "swiping/flicking" to the next award if the "next award" isn't what you're interested in?
