Badges

As you comment and reply on the forums, you may find that you earn special badges! These give you a way to show off how active you've been in the community and how other members are reacting to you.

Kickstarter and Summer backers also receive Badges (and a Role) based on their backer status, so you can show off in style!

Best Of...

Sometimes a post is just so amazing, we want to highlight it! A Moderator or Staff member may choose to promote your post so it ends up in the "Best Of..." section, so keep an eye out to see what's being featured.

    Good to see the forums back up, but I don't think I have my badges from the kickstarter. I do however have the role.
    Which is the greater folly, summoning the demon or expecting gratitude from it?

    They are visible when someone goes to your profile.
    Other than that, you can always just put images of them in your signature, if you really want to show them off.

  • One small issue i had was the forums not functioning at all on my laptop. I can access the site and read discussions but can't post anything. Then again, my laptop is in its 6th year so maybe its just me. Works fine on the desktop though :D

    I'm glad to see that the basics are being covered. It'll be great when everything is up and running smooth, like the forums. My AshesofCreation.com account page never seems to save my name. :smiley:
