My users have been having a great time with the badge system. It's gotten to a point where I've assigned a user as "Badgemaster" and the guy takes his job serious.
We've been coming up (both him and I) with different badges and I figured I'd share. Feel free to use any you may want ... or not.
They don' really fully conform to the "look" that the stock badges have (most) but I digress.. it sure does add a but of color to the forum.
Anyway ... here we go:
BUGFINDER - Given to members who help me find bugs by reporting them, etc...
SHOPMASTER - Given to members proficient in photoshopping... those who post funny images that are obviously shopped, etc... it's somewhat popular for us to drop each others heads on various things (my private forum includes a very large group of friends).
30 BEERS - Given to those who complete the 30 BEERS IN 30 DAYS challenge... you must drink, photograph, and review 30 different beers in 30 days time. Once completed, you get the badge and the admiration of the forum.
ARE YOU BLIND? - Given to members who show a distinct ability to IGNORE the obvious.
HAVE A BEER! - Given to members who regularly participate in the "Are you having a drink tonight?" thread.
ASSMASTER - Given to members who regularly participate in the "ASS" thread in the NSFW forum we have.
We have some others as well. A DONATOR badge for people who've donated to the forum. A DONATED TO KEN badge for people who donated to a forum member who is on a fixed incomes internet fund. STINKY UNICORN HUNTER is a badge earned by members who took a photo with the elusive STINKY UNICORN (a guy who, every year, shows up at the conventions we all attend (California Extreme Arcade Game Show) stinking soooo bad... you would not believe it... YEAR after YEAR... so I created a badge and gave it to anyone who could capture a picture of themself with the stinky unicorn at CAX. We have an "Excellence in Asshattery" badge... we have a Tittymaster badge (I didn't post it as it's a profile of a tit and I'm not sure the policy of said image here (hehe)... and a few others with more coming.
