@Muninn - Hey thanks for the reply! I guess I’d just like to see more “equippable” badges. Editor relays nothing to forum readers and is trivial to get. Why would that be a useful badge to display?
Looking through some of my own, there’s plenty that I feel would signal to other readers what kind of contributions I’ve had to the forum.
- Appreciated: Received 1 like on 20 posts
- Gives Back: Has 100 liked posts and gave 100 likes
- Good Topic: Received 25 likes on a topic.
These all show other users that I’m an active forum member and have added useful discussion to various posts. It’s a form of “Street Cred” so-to-speak. It’s a visible representation of my forum history and suggests that I’ve been quite active.
I’m especially fond of my Good Topic badge, since I’m one of only three users that has it (Benched and Howitzer are the others). Furthermore, the post for which I earned that badge is the number 1 most liked post of all time at 47 (second place is Howitzer with 28). How come I can’t display THAT next to my name to indicate that I’ve made a meaningful contribution.
(On a side note - is there a badge for 50 likes on a post?? It’s killing me that I never reached it and found out)
