As we make our first few posts, are there badges earned for posting or replying in a new section of the forum for the first time?
Nope, you can view all the badges here:
It’s possible for us to create new ones, but we need to have good demand for a specific badge, it takes some time to customize them.
Cool idea, though. For now we’re still a wee small forum so as Laurens says, maybe not quite time yet.
I quite like the system though and what it can do, so active participants can get due credit and are more easily distinguished from lurkers and general riff-raff.
