At the moment this would be classed as a 'nice to have'. The new Uni Match tool is having its second wave of development so is taking up a lot of time. There's a load of stuff that would come before the badge system is extended.
Could something that requires less development time be done to address some of the problems which badges were supposed to alleviate? I thought badges were originally intended to reward people for positive contributions to the site, especially in forums where rep is rarely given (universities, careers, study help).

Come and join the 9-badge club...
I honestly don't know why I am still a 'hero level 1'. How is that possible on a purely statistical basis, as a member of the ten-gem master race?

I only ended up with Hero 3 by moving hundreds and hundreds of Study Help threads around :sigh:

13 months later, struggling to get past level 1 hero badge. Not that I'm complaining, it makes it more of a challenge
I don't think I've seen anyone on TSR with a level 2 or 3 Hero badge :parrot:

I think there's probably a fault with the system - considering how rare the L2/3 Hero badges are, I'd imagine that it's not exactly as detailed on the info page...

That is quite little. But I am realizing right now that I have this highest ranking nowhere. But who cares? it has no meaning...

Roving Fish I assume you didn't see this? Shameless re-post.

I am wondering the same. I am hero level 1 as well, but the level didn't raise for almost a year. The same applies to the another badges.

You're right, I didn't see it - sorry! My quotes have been a bit mental as a few of us were drafted down to TSR Towers for an SL workshop day thing.

In terms of your suggestion for badges, it would be a good thing to look in to - should this development be picked up again. I would probably lean towards this not being picked up any time soon - there are projects that are really going to change how you use TSR being launched this year, which are really exciting and take priority over smaller stuff like this. :excited:

I'm not making a suggestion about badges. I didn't like badges and it doesn't surprise me that the CT have put the project on hold. But they were (apparently) meant to solve the issue of helpfulness going unrecognised - they haven't, that issue is still there - so I'm asking is there anything else that can be done to solve that issue, something which would take less development time?
