Badges–are they fun? DO you actually try to earn them?


#1

Just want to get thoughts/sentiments etc on badges.


#2

I find them amusing, but I wouldn’t miss them if they were gone.


#3

have you tried to earn any (like, read the instructions and explicitly worked to get them)


#4

They’re addictive and I love them.


#5

A few of them, but only super simple stuff that I would’ve normally done.

Edit: I guess the whole thing with the robot ambassador is the furthest I’ve gone.


#6

As @Prisim has said:

I like it! But it could cause some competition and what not with WP users, trying to get them.


#7

I haven’t touched them. I’ve just ignored them, because they aren’t interesting to me. I’d rather be talking to people or writing than trying to get them.

I won’t use them if they’re implemented into the regular site either. They just don’t really matter.

It seems like it’s a personal achievement thing, but I prefer post count for that, because it better demonstrates how much of my life I have wasted (a lot).


#8

Very true! Will our old post counts stay the same?


#9

We’ll have to figure that all out IF we decide to move forward with these forums


#10

Ohh I see :slight_smile:
These forums are growing on me, Ill admit


#11

#12

#15

#18

I don’t try for badges. I just get plesently surprised by them

#19

I don’t go out of my way to earn them. It’s nice to see when I’m just being myself. :>


#20

Lol, you cant really try and get the badges unless it was the tutorial. the others kind of just… appear?
