    This may have been said before (I haven't read the whole thread) but would it be possible to do something like hover over an icon on a profile to see their "badges" or "shields" or whatever?

    Kind of makes it a bit... Well.. Less disliked I guess by the people that weren't really too happy with the idea.

    I can attempt to photoshop something if you don't know what I mean, but say have an icon (perhaps a shield?) next to the username which when hovered over will display their badges, or perhaps their five most recent and then a link to their profile to see the rest, for those who are interested? Kind of keeps the concept but more to the liking of those who didn't like the original idea. Just a thought.

    EDIT: Just seen what you've actually put in place which is pretty similar to what I was suggesting really
    'ello there

    So do you mean that if we hovered over the badge icon under rep a floating image of the cabinet would show up? Something similar perhaps to the rep explanation if your hover over the ? by the green gems?

    No worries - I would rep you, but errr the CT apparently enjoy me ranting about the limits of rep I can give, and are looking forward to my invasion to take over TSR!

    Yes! Just like hovering over the "?" beside rep. Means people could see other's shields without having to click on another page too

    Haha, no worries.

    With regards to what the user underneath the post I've quoted has said, when TSR thought I was a guest and had the username and post count at the side of the post instead of above it, it had the badge count too.

    If something like that has been implemented for guest viewing then why not for user viewing? Or was it just a glitch in the matrix?

    I think we did discuss whether that could be an option when we started looking into the design of this....

    I'll get back to you tomorrow

    We'll keep our eyes peeled... but hopefully with the way we've set it up it won't be super easy to do that...

    What do you think?

    I'm not sure tbh - all I know is that I've been having issues from this afternoon and it's annoying me lol - I would assume it's a glitch...

    We saw that too - it should be all ok now Thank you for posting the screenshot, it's a relief to see they we're seeing the same thing in the office.
    I realise you posted this 4 hours ago but I'm having a problem every now and then. Will try and get a screenshot when it next happens to show you how it changes for me.

    It keeps going a little bit squiggly for me too - the threads look a little lopsided don't they.

    We'll investigate properly tomorrow, thanks a bunch for letting me know

    So I got a notification saying I was awarded a badge about a minute ago. There is a new tab in my profile and the badge is there. It says Level 2. What's a badge and what does level 2 chatterbox mean?

    My profile is my personal space and some admin invaded it and inserted some random tab! :mad:

    Where is the Kings' justice? Lord CEO of TSR, you shall be summoned.

    I think people should be rewarded with a colour name if they get like level 5 or something? It's at least a bit more useful then.


    Also we need a system like neg rep without actually being neg rep, so the person isn't emotionally traumatised lol.
