Appears forum badges went live within the last 20 minutes! Pretty cool!
What is an "awesome"?
It appears any "like" is considered an "awesome"
What are the Yellow ones called?
Post insightful deserving post I've seen today.
It looks like you will eventually have 500 level Awesome, and 100 level Insightful.
The levels appear to be:
for both Awesome and Insightful. Looks like a slow rollout at the moment.
It looks like it triggers once someone reacts to your comment with a Like/Insightful/both.
Props to @CliffM for helping diagnose this.
I was thinking that.
Funny if they deleted the threads made for farming likes like yo and took them away.
Do I get a badge for the 35 times people have called me abusive? I'd really like to see a leaderboard for that one.
TimerCiock will likely be be the reigning champ for a long time to come on that one.
You can call it the "inciteful" badge.
Thanks for making me spit soda up into my nose! Had a good burning chuckle out of that. 🤣🤣
Why not make them ingress styled? Going from bronze to onyx.
That is great idea!! By the way, all community forum should be styled in Ingress theme. Colours, graphics. Even our profile pictures maybe like that ones in scanner?
I mocked up some quick SVGs...
Great to know! Thank you for the info!
I like this, but they need to adjust the levels. Several people already have "Onyx", and Bronze would be too easy at 5 likes. They would also have to get rid of the "win-trading" Yo like posts
These are amazing.
I guess more game-like badges might encourage gamification... but I've very rarely seen a forum where there are 'levels' without people turning it into a game. As for too easy, I didn't do the 'insightful' ones as I've not got that badge yet after 20 insightfuls, so maybe that's already a harder badge to get?
@Rostwold check now. :)
Aha, thanks for the tip. Here's the full set:
They are drawn in SVG, so switching over would be very simple, just a drag and drop to replace the current files.
I have 17 Insightfuls and no Yellow badges, so I'm not sure if that scale is correct. Or do I need to have someone tick up my Insightful to get the "type" to trigger?
Fishing for Insightful... Lol. Anyway, you have it now
No, literally asking a question and disputing the claim in the quote. :-p
And yes, it appears I do need to have someone trigger one in order to get it.
I hope badges is not going to prevent us from having civil conversation within the forum.
I mean, lets face it, it didn't help much for us as an agent who works together in the community.
I foresee "like my post" thread will be abundant in the future....for the sake of badges.
They already are for the sake of "posting links"
These badges won't change anything
