At long last, the previously-mentioned-but-never-really-asked-for subscriber badges are launching today!
What does this mean for you? It means you can now compete with your peers to accumulate the highest comment score and forum score, and on Thursday morning each week, we will announce the winners of several mildly-prestigious badges to little fanfare.
We will be adding new awards periodically, but for now we are starting with badges for the top 3 commenters and the top 3 forum contributors of the past week, as well as two "rookie of the week" badges for new subscribers. When you win a badge, such as Top Commenter, you'll be able to wear that badge proudly in the comments section and forum all week long, until the next week when somebody surely dethrones you. But you'll always keep your badges on your profile page, and you can accumulate multiples of the same badge over time in order to boost your bragging rights and demonstrate publicly just how much free time you have on your hands.
