This week, I’ve rather mischievously created a one-off badge to celebrate two of our first posters and their interactions.

http://www.sotonians.com/badge/allbadges

Now this isn’t necessarily the sort of thing I’d like to encourage (beef, not badges) but it’s a decent demonstration of the sort of fun you can have on a bespoke-ish site.

I’ll take any further suggestions for one-off badges here :slight_smile:

Yay! Rewarding bad behaviour - that’s what makes Papsweb special :wink:

I like the picture of meat.

You could do a badge with a picture of a tampon, then award it to users when they have girly tantrums!

And not taking ourselves too seriously, of course.

Many, many


#5

As a site that takes itself seriously, I find this abhorrent :smile:

But seriously, how many points should the award confer?


#6

Not too many pap, throwing tantrums isn’t something that should be rewarded in a big way, in fact if you could do a badge that awards them zero points, but just highlights what a temperamental little bitch they’re being that’d be ideal, as it’d probably upset them even more! In fact can you take points from people :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#7

You can indeed. Awards can yield a negative points value, so that is a possibility. The problem is that it’s a bit subjective. I’d have no problem with something more specific, like Boomerang (a poster that threatens to quit and never come back, but comes back), but would need to examine others on a case by case basis.


#8

ok how about an award for the first person to come up with a further suggestion following your request for further suggesions, maybe 500 points for that one :wink:


#9

I am more than happy to bung out a badge for those that successfully propose a badge. Not so sure that the Spudders big 500 point backhander will enjoy universal appeal tho’ :slight_smile:

Bear has a new one-off badge. He is Poet Laureate 2015. I wanted to recognise the fine work he has been doing.

Bear thinks English prize being awarded to him will send bletch into some kind of overdrive.

I deff think there should be a booby badge for posters that don’t mention booblies for, say, 3 or 4 posts. I reckon I could do that!!


#12

It would be well earned! And should look like an elbow in a chastity cage.


#13

Or a boob badge for those that can’t stop jammering on about boobs. To signify that you are indeed, a boob.

And booblies? FFS, what are ya? A baby after bitty.


#14

I think that what I am is already firmly established. :wink:


#15

KRG is a raving mammarist!


#16

Correct


#17

I like the word ‘norks’. Just sayin’…


#18

We’ve added some new badges today, all to be collected on the recipients’ next posts.

The Gentleman

Your technical one hundred

Your actual one hundred

The Iceberg

Contender for Young Poster

Just the usual bread and circuses type stuff, but in some cases, entirely deserved.

Now now, Lou. You inspired this in the Who’s Who thread. I am merely folowing female direction, as I should.
