Explain what exactly?

Actually it says ...
Quote:

GHOST CATCHER
CATCH ALL 5 GHOSTS [HALLOWEEN]


Is this a halloween medal?
Yes, it appears to be so. I am guessing there will be something about this before October 31 in the Memoir News, but it is in the current text on the Achievements page:
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44-online/en/achievements/

Unless someone has hacked into the website and is already playing a Halloween prank.

Looks as if ALL medals names have been changed to Ghost Chaser...

If someone hacked that deeply, I hope they are kind and give me a star while they are in there!

It seems that all honour badges have been renamed, and all badges show that name when one hovers the mouse pointer over them.
It doesn't seem to effect the recipients.

An early prank. let's hope that's it.

Don't panic guys, we were not hacked. It's simply that sometimes, database engineers screw up when doing a silly test.

And in that specific case, the one to blame is... me. Embarassed

Sorry about the mess and angst that this might have caused.

Have a great week-end!

Yes, we are a curious sort. And now you have whet our whistle to the possibility of another Holiday achievement similar to the Christmas Arnhem Tree.

So don't be surprised if we persist in our queries about this.

What star? Are you talking about the Christmas Tree in Stevens' post?

If so, I'm afraid it was a Christmas achievement that was only available for a limited time, so it's not possible to earn it any more.

On a different note, I would take this moment to point out to people that this incident shows us that the DoW crew has not forgotten about or abandoned Memoir '44 Online!! Very Happy

I suspect the original poster was referring to the "Star Wars" award.

I, for one, have never suggested DoW have abandoned M44 online.
However I have said that they are taking far to long to release another version.
A bug fix release is long overdue, a release with expansion pack units and scenarios would be timely.
Fixes for the editor are also overdue.

As a paying customer for almost 2 years I feel we are being treated poorly at present. I don't say that lightly, but a release should not have to wait 9 months or more.

Yes, hurrah! for that: it's the first sign in 8 months (at least in the English Forum; I won't mention the Bug Reports, as mine are still unanswered) Confused

That Christmas tree has no star. I think he was talking about this one:

The Star is for reaching the rank of Brigadier General. Smile

Oh, sorry...I thought you were trying to figure out what the star was. Razz I guess you already knew what it was for and basically how to get it. My mistake... Confused

Yeah - I know what it is and have a vague idea of how to get it - was just hoping the ~ Promotion Fairy ~ was hacking around and could just - you know - give it to me...
