We're in the Microbadge Wiki page!



By the way, looking through the system award badges, I spearheaded these:






All of the above have come under scrutiny ... I was told that the poster level badges will cause people to spam the site with inane comments. My retort: inane comments will happen with or without the poster level badges

I had to hand out the collector badges manually at first too - it was hours of volunteer work every day until they automated it.

Heh! Mostly over on RPG Geek... but once the admins saw that we weren't devolving into animalistic anarchy with some of these "level" badges, we added them for the other sites (BGG and VGG). Then came the task of automating them because it was way too much effort to do them manually.

I was told that the star gifting program would also be automated but that never happened and since it's the last of the site-wide initiatives I'm involved in... I'm fine doing it manually.

Thank you for making this possible, Dave.
One can see you've put lots of effort into this community -- especially on interaction--, and that's at the same time awesome and generous.

It's a shame we can't award you an 6th so just have a thumbsup as a small recognition of your sterling work.

Whether it be a legendary 6th star, or some other bauble of appreciation, I feel that it should say this: "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena...", a short blurb from a speech often credited to US President Theodore Roosevelt, sometimes known as, "The Man in the Arena": https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/manvotional-the-man-...

Because, through thick and thin, Dave "Wavemotion" Bernazzani has been The Man in the Arena, in both this effort and others.

Of course, it should probably also bear his likeness...

I imagine this has been discussed elsewhere in the last 330+ pages, so please be kind to me for dredging it up yet again.

Some of the posts here seem pretty likely to be "outing" the givers of certain stars to certain recipients. From the basic newbie intro here I had gotten the impression that anonymity was an important aspect of this particular initiative. Is that no longer the case then?

Cue people denying they've done this.

The rules have not changed. As in all things not everyone assigns the rules the same importance.
