• Shiny new ranks are live

    Paul (SYSMAN_MK) sent me over the final designs for the new ranks and I have put them live right now.
    Thanks again to Paul for all the hard work.

    Enjoy all

      I thought there was already Bett badges, perhaps they were before the new badges?

      The old rank of EduBett (attached) was set up for those who helped out in the very early days, or who provided access to resources (helped us get kit onto the stand or persuade folk to sponsor us when we had *no* money at all). A few others also got it from speaking at conferences / workshops.

      With the new badges coming out, the removal of donations (and so no more new folk joining the 'supporters' rank) and the growth of the use of rep ... I don't think the ranks mean that much anymore other than Admin, Mod or Member.

      Ranks just create a hierarchy and can generate cliques ...

      Awards though ... that might be an interesting route to go. I like the way Certforums do theirs.

      I don't care if I get a new badge or not, I am just glad I was allowed to help!

    Slow path out of IT?

    Don't even joke about that, the treatment for some viruses involves burning the hive, and any others nearby to the ground. :-(

    Seriously though - interesting idea, and the very best of luck with it!

    We've got processes in place to minimise bugs, and with more than one hive we should have some measure of redundancy, though there's no actual backup

    Jeez, what about all those late nights doing 'hive installs'.
    And then all your bees will move into the cloud, and you'll never see them again.
