we’d one or two users, who got this badge in the next day of their arrival! it could be because of low rate of contribution of new users in our forum.
I don’t see any benefit in such fast recognition, because it gave them the sense of a little bit hollow recognition! “if for only one-two contributions, I’m one of the two selected newbies; perhaps I don’t need to contribute that much here.”
not all the months need selected new users. can there be some level of activity before a new user be considered as the new user?
or can admins of a forum sort of determine when this badge is granted?
