I just updated from pre v1 on production and I have (and I’ve had) badges disabled but the system keeps granting the default badges to users. How can I stop it?
One thing that may help is if you identify which badges are being granted? All of them? The TL badges?
Well, I only know what I’ve got notifications from which were guidelines and first link since this has been live for only a few minutes. I definitely haven’t gotten every notification I think I should if I’d enable the badges system.
But looking at the badges page (why can I even open it when badges have been disabled?) just about every badge and user seems to be effected. Is there a log about the badges somewhere that I could check? I can’t even remove the badges since they can’t be edited when badges are disabled.
Any help diagnosing this? Users keep getting notifications even though we don’t want the badges and there is nothing I can do?
Maybe enable it, go into the Badges Admin area, uncheck the Enable Badge checkbox, and then globally disable badges again?
You mean enabling the badges temporarily to disable all the individual badges? I’ll try that.
Yes, that is what I mean. I’m just guessing at this point, because I haven’t had time to reproduce your exact issue and I don’t know when I’ll find the time (just got slammed with work today )
Okay, just did that. Thanks for the help.
At least the badges page is now empty, so I guess there are no badges to grant any more. I can’t be sure but I’ll update if more reports of notifications for badges come up. I guess there is no way to remove those notifications? Clicking them leads to an empty page with no error displayed.
