Now i’ve tried to research this and its starting to give me a headache so im now
asking the advice of any Discourse experts.
I’ve read a few posts about this badge and can understand its requirements however something seems way off.
Now i dont know what version of discourse is being run on the forum im frequenting so this could be another issue such as outdated software and no fixes applied since first installed/activated but i dont know this info at present as theres no visible discourse version number displayed to
end users…maybe to an admin/leader but i dont know.
Basically put i’ve waited patiently for the 2 August to Roll by as i was sure that id be getting the “New User Of The Month” Badge as all my stats were almost as good as the company owners and i was getting quite a lot of praise ( big head yeah i know ) and im only days off the “Regular” badge being activated as i write this.
Now i registered on the 2nd July and another user registered on the 1st Of July and a Third user registered on the 3rd of July…now this seems quite funny when you think about it and put it in order like this 1,2,3 July,However after logging in this morning hoping to see the badge there in my notification tray i was curious where it was.
I then found that 2 new users had indeed been awarded the badge but it had skipped over me and awarded the newer registered user on the 3rd July & The Older Registered User on the 1st July
the badge and both of there stats were no where close to my own and they were basic users…one of
the users didnt even give likes but got the badge ??
The newer registered user 3rd July who was basically a troll trying to upset the apple cart by
being nasty to other users because they couldnt get there own way got the badge & again
there stats were lower than my own.
Now im not an admin or staff member for that forum but i can relay any suggestions
if its anything on there side…discourse as a forum platform is still quite new for me
and im learning new things each day but finding bugs & issues spoils the fun when
they dont get addressed in a timely manner.
Something is definitely off here…so any advice would be appreciated.
