New badge feature

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

We've added in a new badge system so it's ready for our competition. You can see the small selection of badges we have here:
http://www.scirra.com/badges

Badges show on your profile page (if you have at least one) and lots of them come with reputation bonuses.

I'll be adding lots of new badges, if any of you have any ideas post them here!

All badges should be designed to promote good content and feature discovery on the site (eg, no negative badges!)

Examples of other ones we will be introducing:

A bronze badge for leaving your first comment
A bronze badge for your first comment upvote
A bronze badge for your first forum post
A gold badge when you hit 3,000 posts

etc

Anyway, if you have any ideas let me know!Tom2011-10-18 00:10:30

I've put your badge count at the top of the screen when you are logged in now showing you how many badges you have total (gold, silver and bronze).

The "Postalot"-badges will lead to SPAM, short answeres and doubleposts "by mistake" .. I really do not appreciate them =/

Wow, I've herd the phrase of calling a spade black, but I never thought I'd see an example so clearly laid out.

@newt

I think you're mixing your metaphors a bit :)

It's "pot calling the kettle black" and "calling a spade a spade", which mean 2 different things :)

I think you meant the former, see wikipedia.zenox982011-10-31 08:24:47
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Oh sorry I do that a lot, hopefully not enough to get a badge.
