I’m interested in using badges to gamify our community some more. While they’re great for people who receive them, badges are also still quite ‘invisible’ on the site, and I feel that doesn’t encourage the desired behaviour as much as it could.
The closest I’ve come is to instruct members to use a badge as their title:
The drawbacks of this approach are:
- People need instruction to display the badge
- Visibility is low
- There’s no hyperlink to badge info
- You can only use one badge at a time
Is there a way that we can show selected (not all!) badges in the message list and apply styling?
For example, here’s how we have styled our ‘Staff’ group. It would be great if I could have a small number of badges here too with some styling (color+icon) and a link to their info pages:
