Introducing Activity Badges

submitted on May 21, 2012 by YanBz in "Buxr Website / Contests", last updated on July 2, 2012 by shawndiaz
We are adding a new exciting way how active members are recognized in our community!

You are certainly aware that if you finish top 3 in our monthly contests you get a little cute medal under your avatar: bronze, silver or gold. Starting today we add more ways how you can get these awards. Completing such activities as fixing deal flags, posting popular discussions and sharing deals with friends will get you a badge. See the full list of activities on this page:
http://www.buxr.com/wiki/getti.....ber_badges

Have a comment about the new feature, or an idea for an activity that would give you a new badge? Please share in the comments! Smile

    You can see all badges as members earn them on this page:
    http://www.buxr.com/contest/badges

    You can add the badges page as a module to your home page:

    I think it's a great idea! Hoping to add to my activity badges... on the wiki page, under "Contest Badges", it says for the contest badge types... First Place, Second Place, and First Place. Mini-typo. Smile

      Too bad we can't place online bets on who that would be... I have a good idea of the member who will get the first gold.

    Do the badges get awarded over the length of time the person has been a member? I looked at my profile page and all I have is a starter badge Sad

      You get these badges for seniority: Rookie, Enlightened and Old Timer. The count however starts at May 21, 2012 when the feature was launched.

    The 'Busy Bee' badge was broken, but I fixed it now and everyone who earned it will get it (with some delay). Thanks to samm_is for tipping me to the problem.

    Is there a problem with the: Bargain Hunter badge:Posted a deal up-voted by 20+ users? Seems like a few members earned this week.

      Those votes need to be contest eligible. If a vote is made after 24 hours or by a newbie then it will not be contest eligible and will be excluded from the count for the badge.

      Actually, you are right. I can see at least a couple deals that would qualify for the badge. Let me check the code and I will let you know if I find any problem.

    I noticed all of mine stopped counting several weeks ago. I've been at 7 & 3 for a while now.

    What happened?
