New Badges and Trophies Added


May 4, 2013
You may notice you have received a number of new alerts when logging in today, the reason for this is the new badges & trophies system. Any existing trophies earned with the previous system have been removed.

To View The Badge Categories
Go to you profile and check for the Badge Tab and this will list the different Badge available categories

To View The Badge Categories Listings (Points Needed for each Badge in that category)
Click on any of the categories in the list and that will open the badge list for that category. The highlighted badges would be those that you have already been awarded and the grey one those still to come

Other F.A.Q - Badge?
A badge is an icon on your profile (and tied to your account) that represents the trophy sets (a group of trophies) you've awarded or your participation in an event. There are 3 types of badge:
  • Visible: all trophies of this badge are visible.
  • Step by step: the next trophy details will be shown once the previous has been awarded.
  • Hidden: it will be shown once earned.
How do I unlock a badge?
From your Profile page, click on the "Badges" tab. From your Badges page, select a badge to view its details and tasks.

How do I feature a badge?
You can select any awarded trophy from your Badges page. Your featured badge will display at the top of your profile and in the messages of thread under your avatar.

What is my Level?
Your Level is a summary of your trophy points and shows off your awarded trophies. Each trophy earned increases your Points, and every 10 Points gives you an added Level (at least to start).

What is the point of my Level?
The Level is a quick way for users to see how much someone has contributed to the community. We have just a few different ways to get badges right now, but we hope to expand that to include all the different ways users contribute.
