Forum Badges

Post by Sophie on Tue Mar 29, 2016 11:53 am

Update 30/3 -  So I've made a bunch of badges for everyone to enjoy. You should be able to manually add them under the 'edit profile' menu. Please type   in the text field and voila - you've earned a badge! However some badges are only able to be earned via forum participation. I also want to make personalised badges for everyone (originally I was going to make the camp counsellor badge for everyone who gave advice more than 10 times, but it suits Jessie so much I think she should keep it LOL - so please let me know if you have any suggestions!)

Here are the badges you can get so far:

Post the most on the forums (earn only)
Participate in a word sprint (earn only)
Participate in a word war (earn only)
You did a lot of preparation for camp (outlines, character bios etc)
You didn't prepare at all for camp
You write best at night



I've been messing around with the forums, making changes and what have you and one thing I wondered if anyone would be interested in is badges/awards.

I've seen on plenty of other forums that you can earn badges by doing particular things i.e. posting over 50 times (just like at camp when you get badges for becoming good at certain skills). Then you get a small badge underneath your icon.

I thought maybe that would be a nice incentive to post more, or help each other out. Also I feel like it might be a good way to reward those of us who DO offer criticism/feedback (I'm looking at you Jessie!), and possibly motivate us over the coming month (e.g. badges for 10k, 25k, 50k).

What do you think?

I am always for rewards on forums. Then all my obsessive posting feels a bit more productive. XD

I think that's also the other reason LOL you're the second top poster after all. That deserves something!

edit: the other thing is - what kind of rewards would people want? I have collected over 20+ icons waiting to be used!

Poetic-Jessie but honestly you guys are neck and neck, 41/45. XD As an example I've put a quickly thrown together 'top poster' badge on your profile.

You're very welcome! Anything I can do to encourage all the advice/feedback you give! Not to diminish the awesome efforts of everyone else of course. I really enjoy this team environment we've all been building together Smile
