Over at the public repository on Github [github.com/plainblack/Lacuna-Server-Open], you can have a look at the mechanics which determine
your chance to receive a medal.
For example 'dirtiest' gets calculated by summarize_spies
.pl as follows:
($spy->seeds_planted + $spy->spies_killed + $spy->spies_captured + $spy->spies_turned + $spy->things_destroyed + $spy->things_stolen)
