    I do like that the Mod bars are in cornflower blue, it does make me wonder loudly about Project Mayhem. Even if I am breaking the first rule of Project Mayhem by just mentioning it

    Woo, thanks for my shiny green badge

    Now.. i just need to be able to click the "SmoothWall" bit, and get a list of all my colleagues: nile_c, robf, robot, ipballe, daniel_barron, gav, datalas... who else... I think claire & sean are on here, but don't know their usernames... and the MD is on, but he's lurking (hi George!).

    I'd like an EduMod badge but I'm not a moderator but would offer my services if a spot came up.

    I think by how regular, at least 3 posts a day (average) would cover it surely....as for length I could not tell you!

    So regular that you see their 'Supporter' rank tab, and they have been around since before we stopped taking donations (about 2 years back?).

    That's a shame as it was quite helpful to see. That said, most people have applied proper footers now.

    Will eagerly await the information.

    I am thinking we will rework the requirements for Supporter status since we dont really plan to reintroduce donations at this stage.
    I will have a think about criteria for it tonight.

I've never contributed hard cash to the 'cause' and actually I'm not that worried if I'm a member, supporter or A N Other status, but if supporters are only those who are long standing members and have contributed to the cause, then that clarifies it.

    ta!
    It appears you didnt get notifed of my post before you finished entering your message
    It will be reworked soon.

    I've got the Supporter badge, but TBH if you're not careful you're making it do the same thing as rep. It would probably be better to remove it. Yes I made cash donations to edugeek in the past, but it's not relevant now. I'm a member like evryone else. The ones who need to be identified are those doing things like mods jobs... which I'm not (although I will admit to telling one or two people to grow up! )

    I've only just noticed that the main logo now says "The IT Professionals' lifeline" without the word "education"...

    Does that mean we're just geeks now and not edugeeks?

    The trouble with using a badge to indicate a members contribution to the site, as suggested above, is that users' contribution is already indicated by rep and the rep bar.
    Perhaps it worth considering a) making the future criteria related to something above and beyond post count (as that doesn't really measure valuable contributions) and rep
    b) Leaving it as it is as the supporters badge is historical and might not make sense to add other members to it for different criteria.

    and more worryingly, rep is decided by the community at large, whereas badge rank is decided by mods/admins alone.
