.... We don't need no steenking badges.  

 

What's up with these? Do they have a meaning? And why is everyone a "Newbie"?

 

Woohoo. Seems like I earned 7 of them just for showing up. 🤣

Got some new badges.

No doubt its a "feature".

 

Next there will probably be "ranks" and other popularist "stuff".

 

Probably an update that provided useful updates as well as "chrome" like this.

Yeah, I suspect an update of the forum software as a part of the regular maintenance that gave us extra features. Like electrolytes, that plants crave. Man, I could enjoy a can of Brawndo right now.

It came with a forum update.  Trying to wrap my head around it now, but your "rank" goes up based on activity - thanking users for helpful posts, using the icon at the bottom right of every post, reviewing downloads, etc.

Duck should get a badge for least likely to get ask to sing Karaoke 

 

So I take it that you will show him how it is done at next opportunity ... say Sunday ? 😁

I still have a "recent achievements" tile in the upper right quadrant.

 

Yeah thats why I posted below - very strange it was not there and then it was. But there seems to be no issues now.

I don't understand how I can have a badge for making 500 posts and still be a noob.

 

I am finding this all quite amusing, though.

 

EDIT: Oooooh, I just got promoted to "Rookie"! 🤓 All noobs must now call me "Your Excellency"!

23,000 posts and 20 years of forum membership with almost uninterrupted daily visits haven't brought me to the top rank either. ;) 

Clearly, the ranks are designed as a life-long career path.:D
