What will members see if we remove some badges?

(Holly Ross) #1

Hi there -

We are working on redefining the badges we want to award our community. As part of the process, we are considering not using some of the standard badges in Discourse. I know I can turn these off by un-toggling the “Enable Badge” field. However, we have many community members who have already earned these badges. My assumption is that anyone who already earned a badge will keep it, but no more badges will be issued for badges we have disabled.

Can anyone confirm that this is the behavior? We don’t want to disable a badge, have it disappear from a member’s profile and possibly ruffle feathers.

Sure @sam can confirm the behavior here.

As far as I recall, disabling badges makes it vanish from everywhere.
