I think there should be a badge for people with special characters in their user names. Or a badge for people who have earned badges previously.

Can badges be lost or taken away? It doesn't seem like any of them would - I mean for example, you either won a [modding/fan-fiction] contest or you didn't.

If we accidentally award the wrong badge to someone (e.g. a roleplaying badge instead of a fan-fic one, or we accidentally misspelled the name of the recipient), then yes, we have the capability to delete the badge. However, if you're awarded a badge for a legit reason, I don't see any reason why they would be taken away, except perhaps in very extreme circumstances like someone getting perma-banned.

Oh, come on. A You Have A Badge In Your Profile badge would be totally useful.

Hmm, how about a "Ubiquitous Member" or "Machiavellian Member" badge? Perhaps something worded a bit less grandiose. Basically, a badge for members who have been observed to regularly post in most sections of LucasForums. "Forum Specter?" (lulz, Floor Inspector.) "Highly Active Member?"

I think there should be an "LF Artist" badge for all of those talented people that post their drawings, paintings etc.

Just my two cents.

You're right... we actually have plans to encourage the artist community here at LFN... that is if we can manage to get things rolling.

Stay tuned though, a badge for artists will be made just like there is one for fan fics and mods.

We need this badge: the Half-Jester. It's for people that think they are funny, but are not.




I think I qualify, if I do say so myself.

I think that there should be a badge for members that spend their time on many different areas of the forum...like someone who spreads the love to all of the specific forums.

It would undoubtably have to be a K-jo'Round badge. The most terrible, infamous of all.
And I also thought the "spends a lot of time in many forums" badge was a good idea.

I second this motion.

Indeed the Kjo badge should be entitled to the one and only Kjo.

and with that said, that the badge should look like the "oringal" Kjo avatar, in mere honor of his "dastardly" feat. (during that time, of course)

Noooo, why do you hate me? You might as well post naked baby pictures or my 8th grade class photo up, if you wanted to destroy my self-esteem.

We're not going to have any awards relating to the serious discussion forums such as Kavar's and the Senate.

How about a well-spoken badge for members who typically have high-quality posts in re: grammar and structure?

Whilst I do think that it's important for proper spelling and grammar to be encouraged, I don't think a badge acknowledging it would be such a good idea.

I have no problems with the idea, but I can see potential complaints and disagreement (which i'm sure is the last thing everyone wants given the drama of the past few weeks). Let's not also forget that English isn't the first language of everyone here, and not everyone is going to have the same command of it.

AK.

Debater badge?
Why not something more suitable like "cranium cruncher", "wall rammer", or "lord of futility".
