Outstanding User of the Month

Awarded to someone who has been extremely helpful to forum users during the month.



We don’t have a hardware/general project badge. Just art/music/software related ones.



Isn’t that already a default badge?

Try to keep the discussion focused on badges :slight_smile:

Thinking about car specific badges. Give the car people some swag

Formats for each brand are as follows @sgtawesomesauce Lets test only one for now or two to see if we can get them to grant

Name: Ford Proud
Icon/Image: imageI can doctor this to make it better
Type (bronze, silver, gold): SIlver
Group (getting started, community, posting, other): Community
Description (short and long): Awarded for owning a Ford vehicle or being Ford brand loyal
Should it be a title: If you want
Can it be granted multiple times: No

I was thinking can an additional form be made in the user profile to list a vehicle they own?



I think it would be better if we keep the current style of the icons on the badges.

Also here are some for the bsd ones that Goalkeeper suggested.




Nice work, bro. Those are sexy.

By the way. Admindev came up with the titles and descriptions.

I still really want these badges :smiley: (But my post is not entirely 100% serious though … well maybe except for the RTFM’D badge :upside_down_face:)

Name: RTFM’D
Group: Community
Type: Gold

For replying to your own question thread with a solution that might be helpful to others :stuck_out_tongue:
Kind of a consolation prize for when the tumble weed blows through a thread you create asking for help but you
eventually figure out the problem yourself.


Name: WTF?
Group: Community
Type: Bronze, Silver or Gold (I am not sure how someone would receive this badge 3 times, but maybe)

The RTFM’D badge has the side effect of sometimes awarding the “Tutor” badge, which might then award this badge if the OP had no intention of writing a tutorial to begin with.


Name: Badger
Group: Community
Type: Bronze, Silver or Gold (Depending on the number of badges contributed)

Just because I’d like to have this badge if any of my other badges are accepted.




The first and third ones are nice, not sure about the second one.

Not sure if I need to describe them in any way:
