Badge Groupings


(Sam Saffron) #1

We have the following badges for V1 but they have no sane groupings:

Basic User
Regular User
Leader
Elder
Reader
Read Guidelines
First Link
First Quote
First Like
First Flag
First Share
Welcome
Autobiographer
Editor
Nice Post
Good Post
Great Post

I would like to organize this badge page in some sane way and introduce a grouping concept:

A possible order could be:

###Getting Started

Read Guidelines
First Link
First Quote
First Like
Autobiographer
Reader
First Share
Welcome

###Posting

Nice Post
Good Post
Great Post

###Trust Level

Basic User
Regular User
Leader
Elder

###Other

all other badges that are user defined.

I need copy for the title of the group, and list of badges in the group.

(within each group I plan to order by badge level, bronze first, and dictionary order second)

This is a great start. Could admins move their user-defined badges to one of the above groups (besides “Other”)? For example, we have a “Timely Post” badge that would really be better under the “Posting” category.

Off Topic, I apologize :wink:
Oooo What’s a Timely Post badge?

Back on Topic:
I personally like the groupings you’ve made. So the only two that are currently not grouped are First Flag and Editor. Would a “Community Member” group make sense for either for those? Showing they are actions we’d typically find from a member who wants to belong to the “community”?

For Other custom badges would there be the ability to require prerequisites? For example, a person can’t be a Regular User until they’ve become a Basic User so the prerequisite for getting a Regular User badge is that a person must have received a Basic User badge first. Make sense?

Version 1.0 of this is live now

Very nice! Only thing that stands out to me is the lack of left side margin on mobile (Nexus 7)

Very beautiful! Upgrading my Discourse installation now! :slight_smile:

EDIT: There is no update! Do we have to wait for V1? :frowning:
