Badges in IV Forums

Postby Mark » Fri Oct 03, 2008 5:10 pm

One of the best things about working for Introversion is the group of fans that support the work that we do. I would love to be able to say that we reward the community for their efforts, but sometimes I feel we neglect you guys a bit.

To make up for that we have decided to implement a badge system for the forums. You do something cool for us and we give you a badge - pretty simple right! This was the first job that we gave to Hugh The Intern, but he got a bit distracted with other things and it has taken until his last day to finally make the system live.

A full list of the badges is available here and in theory, the next time you log into the forums your badges should automatically show up (note that you may need to log out and log back in again to show your badges to the world). It is possible that we have missed some people and if that is the case, don't get upset - just drop Martin (@introversion.co.uk) a line and he will give you your badge - if you deserve it!

We'll be developing this system with new badges over the next few weeks and months so why not drop us a line if you have any ideas of what we should add.

The next opportunity to get a badge will be by meeting us at the Launch Party - make sure you talk to Martin about an invitation!

Enjoy!

Interesting. Wonder if I can collect them all! Probably not, the time machine's still on the blink.

"Uber Posts Badge!" is just asking for Let's Go Random to double in length (THAT'S RIGHT, DOUBLE).

Hmm...

EDIT: I have to say I'm still a bit sceptic about this, it clogs the forums a lot and it reminds me a lot of those hateable rank systems in use at big forums. ;)
