Good timing! I'll be due to get my 10 year badge soon!

You guys are doing an amazing job with the constant updates on the site.

Thanks to Trucks and Talon for taking care of the bagdes.

Machina, I think the first new badges we should be related to our account age. They only go up to 10 years and there's people that have been here for longer than that.

Oh, please make a badge for the number of survived bans.

Rol would be the first one to get that badge

Make a starting badge so that new users don't feel alone, speaking of which, make it a Zelda 1 reference with the "It's Dangerous to go Alone, take this !" line

That one already exists, the "Ello Princess" badge.

And there's another one for those that don't run away scared after the first day, the "So You Came Back For More, Huh?" badge.

Nice.
It is nice to see the site improve.

Someday, we may even get a modern looking layout too.

I know it sounds like I'm being a broken record, but it REALLY is coming! If you hadn't already read it in one of the database threads, then I will mention it again here; The header that currently appears on the game pages, is one of the KEY PIECES in regards to the website refresh that Trucks is working on. That header is the biggest piece that allows us to build a more "mobile ready" website.

I do hope you've had a chance to look at the game pages and/or look a bit closer at that header. It's very slick and a big step in the right direction...

It is coming, but it isn't here.

Half-Life 3 is coming; we may all be dead before that comes out.

There are quite a few starting badges, for User Signup ('ello Princess), first profile picture upload (mirror Image) and second login (so you came back for more, huh?) for example.

Considering that I (obviously...:P) did all of those things and yet never recieved any of those badges, they might be among the ones that have always been broken?



Never mind badges, can we have money

Of course there are gonna be tiers. 1 ban for nice try. 5 bans for the rookies. 10 bans for the persistent trolls. 20 for the evergreens and 100 for the Rol badge.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I pay no mind to them for the most part, but it's a neat little extra, so, glad to hear they're working again.

Always cool to see the site being worked on and improved, thank you for the time spent on this guys. Well done, it might be a little thing, but those little things all add up to make the place more functional and appear less... abandoned in ways. Love it.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Damn they should be working. I've linked Talon to your post, hopefully he can make sure they're working properly and get handed out.

Seconded. Also add badges like "Had mods go on power trip 5 times" and a Hall of Fame badge for indispensable members. Whatever the admins can think of to put me above the commoners.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
