We’re trying to encourage users to help each other. We’ve decided to start awarding a custom ‘Users Helping Users’ badge (u-h-u) to users who are the first to respond and whose response attempts to help.
Because we want lots of this behavior, I’ve made the badge something you can get more than once.
Since it take human intelligence (currently) to assess whether a user’s response was an attempt to be helpful or just a “me too”, this badge is awarded manually.
Adding humans necessarily introduces a point of failure and I’ve realized that it would be very easy to award the u-h-u badge to the same user/post over and over. Nothing stops you. For badges that can only be awarded once, they disappear from the badge-award dropdown, but this one doesn’t.
So, for multiple reasons (including re-inforcement to other users), I think it would be good to have something like this:
His pic shows a solved response and a custom badge beside username.
So it is related as post badges can be set to show custom.badge(s).( I used this for a Youtuber anf Press custom manual badge)
Now if you remove solved. Then maybe a Discourse AI extension could be used in part to automate granting badge.
If you want a granted helpful.badge listing maybe a data explorer inquiry to poll daily for new badge award and an inquiry or mod extension to Gamification…Though iirc gamification added an option for solved?
