Medals like "Waypoint Community Playdate MVP" or a medal for having your caption in the Friday Caption Fun, or contributing to the "News" section, or having a screenshot selected for one of the blog galleries would be really cool. You could always go with the general stuff, like medals based on activeness and overall helpfulness. Contest related medals would be pretty sweet too, maybe a medal based on the "thanks" feature?
"Thanksgiven" for amassing a high amount of Thanks, or a decent thank-to-post ratio? Though since "Thank" has morphed and taken on the role of a "Like" button, this may not be such a special thing anymore.

Perhaps a "Party Leader" medal, for being a lobby host in a community game night that has a high number of attendants and/or a high retention rate (players joining and staying for several games).

The first one I was considering implementing is people who have had their screenshots published in the HRSotD series. I like the Friday Caption Fun idea, too. Basically, it needs to be something fairly tangible so there are clear-cut qualifications for each one.

I'm a little concerned about the thanks-related one since it could be easily manipulated. It's definitely on the table, though.

Anything that relates to front-page blog news would be a great idea. Straight, clear, to the point, not easily manipulated, assessable to everyone. The HRSotD would be a great idea.
What about badges that you earn when you reach specific ranks? For example if you get to the rank of Spartan, you would get this as a badge which symbolizes that your'e a Spartan on the forums. This idea can also work for other ranks like ODST's and Marines as well.
Total support for HRSotD and Friday Caption Fun medals. Like Enfinit said, anything that relates to the front page blog is A-OK.

On a less serious note, how about a medal you get for getting 50 thanks in one post? (I'm so close... :P)

I approve of this one.

Only because I'd win it. ;)

Seriously, though. The HRSotD is probably the most sensible one, and I do kind of like the Friday Caption Fun medal idea.
HRSOTD or something like that.

:D

I like that ODST one good choice!

I think they should have a challenging medal! Were you reach up to 343 thanks from the commuinty and then the thanks medal can be added! I like the thank medal idea!

The Hero medal I think this medal should be awarded to users who help, new players with achievements and game play in campagin because its very time consumming and it shows FULL dedication to ALL of the halo games! Plus, Its a major eye catcher!
50 Most active Members?

Very true...
I agree with HRSotD. Maybe one for being really helpful to new members? How about one for having something featured in the blog?

That would just promote count boosting.

Medal: Community Creator (Medal for those with Maps in Matchmaking, or a top Community Creation for the week)
Medal: Screenshot of the week
Medal: Film of the week
Medal: Map of the week
Maybe a medal to reward all the dedicated forgers who accomplished getting their content into matchmaking. I'm not exactly sure what it would look like, but the original all star symbol would work.
