What's in a Badge?

by Chris Lobban, Chief Programmer

5th February 2009

[Originally Posted on June 17, 2008]

Since there's been some asking, here are your answers. Below is a comprehensive list of all badges currently available, how you can get them, and what they mean. As new badges become available, I'll periodically update this list.

You'll notice that there are two copies of each badge, one with a white border and one with a black border. The black border "limited edition" versions of the badge are given to Premium Members of the website. Anybody else receives the white border edition.

If you want to know where you can see your badges, that will depend on what type of badge it is. All badges will show up in your profile screen (click on your username from anywhere on the boards to see this). In addition, the most recent badge in the Donor series and any recent tournament placing badge (non-participation) will show up under your name next to each post that you make on the forums. And of course all of your tournament badges will show up on your tournament profile next to the event that you earned the badge at.
