Badge Progress - updating

One of the reasons we moved from the old IPBoard forum to this shiney Discourse based one is because of the in-built badge system that allows us to make the forum a little more fun with badges awarded for doing stuff. It’s something Me, @Sketchy @Barefoot and @WOTTO have talked about a few times in passing … So now we are looking for suggestions of what badges Should be awarded for :smiley:

As a starting point I’ve just added a couple new ones…

»Introducing yourself on the Introductions thread here.
»7 consecutive days activity on the forum

Badges can also be awarded for being a member of a team, for example
»Event Organisers
»Convoy Organisers

But we could also use it for fun stuff too, I was thinking about using a couple of groups for group competitions, or to represent the car you drive or any thing really :smiley:

How about a troll thread, users earn it after say 5 trolls, but it carries a sting,
5 trolls=1 day suspension
10 trolls=1 week suspension

I like the idea of Sticks as well as carrots :smiley: and it seems logical that Trolls be limited in some way.
Need to see if we can utilise the system to do sommit like this :smiley: I’ll start looking into it tonight, along with if its possible to have peer awarded / voted badges to help with some of the other idea that have been floating around like voting helpful members that have helped people out etc.

Arigato Mr Yeti san although Ninjin say ‘sticks suck balls’

Tech day badge ??

I’m seeing a pattern in your suggestions lol…

EEEEEEEKKKKK is it Sunday yet? I want one of these tiny cute CP Peaks kill marks for the car!!

You going to make one for all of the shows this year then @Yetidragon? I like the idea of hard to get ones too, like ones you earn, so like @maisiemk1 always seems to do the shopping at JAE and I think little roles like that should be acknowledged like the Chef one! :smiley:

yeah, all shows and the earning ones :smiley: suggestions welcome :smiley: got a pile on my to-do list already :smiley: as well as making the current ones all fit same format.
