Our little community is loving the badge system, and we have made quite a few custom badges to reflect real-world actions.
We are a car club, so we really wanted to gamify some of the real world stuff we do, like going to car shows, meets etc. Previously we had used IP board and a whole host of plug ins to try and do this, it wasn’t very successful, but since using discourse it has really taken off, and real life interaction has increased too.
Our badge list as it stands http://forum.combustionpunks.co.uk/badges
We also produce these as little stickers, a lot of people have started using them kinda like “kill markings” on their cars
I found this post Best use of the Badge system you have seen which started down this question, but has been closed.
So who is really pushing the limits of the badge system? I could really do with learning some more about it to further our use of it
Thanks in advance
