Forum Helper Badges

So on one of my random strolls through the page and information, I was taking a look at badges and noticed the forum helper badges. Now I might be having a blonde senior moment, but is there any fine print to them? I know I've commented on my fair share of forums, but never received one badge... I

t's not super important to me I was just curious. I know I've had issues from the beginning because I was one of the people that started on the app and transferred to the site so not all points and what not were counting. Call this curiosity killing the cat Happy

I just clicked on your profile and you have a whole slew of badges.

Click on your name on the upper right corner of the page, then "View Profile". Your badges should show on the upper right side.

EDIT: I see you were referring specifically to the red Forum Helper badges, which it seems you do not have.

I haven't had my coffee yet this morning :(

Hi Meghad23, I use a Mac and my badges do not always show up accurately. At one point, I had multiples of the same level badge rather than seeing all five levels. I'm not a techie but if you clear the cache on your computer, it may reset the badges that show up in your profile. It may be that your computer history is interfering with the badge display - - - again, I'm not a techie.

BADGES ???? We don't need no stinking badges !!!!!!!!!!

you knew it was coming

Of course, we knew. We had been disappointed if you hadn't done it.Wink

It's okay! I completely understand.

Interesting, Thank you! I will try that.

We used to have a Forum Badger, but he has stopped posting on the site. He would argue and antagonize most of the users. But he did not get a badge for badgering Wink

You can learn about badges here:

That said, you should have earned at least a few of those. Not sure why they're not showing up for you.

We're actually considering sunsetting the earning of most new badges in the near future, though you would keep any you've already earned. Does anyone really LOVE the badges and would miss them if they go away? Thoughts? Opinions? Torches and pitchforks?

Being new to the forum, I find the badges fun. I can't say if the have outlived their usefulness but I check them every time I log-in to see if I've earned any more.

Honestly, I only find them useful as an ego trip. I don't think I've paid any attention to others' badges.

OTOH, you should bring back the Badger Badgering BadgeBig Smile
