First Post badge

Why are there no badges for the first post/topic? Is there a way to customize it?

What you can do is make a badge, then use the Automation plugin to grant it

yeah, but am I right that the only option to do so is through the API?

Yeah, unless you want to manually do it. The only things that automate by default are the badges you get on a fresh install

thanks a lot for your help, @Pixlz! :hugs:

It is possible to have Triggered Custom SQL badges if you self-host, or are on a hosting tier that supports it. :+1: (Enterprise for us)

Anyways, thanks a lot for this solution!

Wow. I could have sworn that I got a First Topic and First Post badge, but I see none such in my profile here or at discuss.python.org. I’d recommend these as a default.

Hopefully, there will be such a badge in the future.
