    I don't need a medal xD In the forums it actually depends upon the forum like if the title goes "Last one to say pie wins" you have to post pie, similarly on debates and music and all the other forums. You will medals for 1. No of friends added. 2. No of comments sent by you. 3. No of forum posts. 4. No of blogs you write. 5. No of photos you upload. The highest medal you can get in any category is diamond. And hope you enjoy KW :') You'll get addicted to it in no time so WELCOME TO KIDZWORLD! :D
