Yeah yeah, you guys keep asking for badges, it's coming don't worry
Just thought I'd start this thread in advanced, so we can get some ideas when we do release the badge plugin - what badges/achievements would you guys like to see on this community forum?
One for sure is "Plugin Developer" and "Theme Developer"... we will have those so that we can recognize the achievements of the devs on this community. Give me some ideas, I know we would love to reward the helpful users on this forum. Something like X upvotes for one specific topic = ?? badge; getting Y upvotes in total = ?? badge, etc etc.
Right now the badge plugin in development only looks at the user data (# posts, # topics, # rep, etc), and admin awarded badges (ex. "Plugin Developer") but with some work I imagine we can make it even more robust.
