Why no Awards or Badges for forum members?

Post by kellijaebaeli »

I'm continually chagrined by the absence of an extension that allows the admin to give out awards/badges/medals to members.

It's much like the rank system, but i noticed that that feature only allows one. I need to be able to give out these badges more than once, as they are earned. I also have custom images for them, and will need to upload those.

I have experimented with what's out there, and the pickings are slim. I currently have profile flair, but the images just don't look right. I make them high quality, in photoshop, even adjusted the sizing as advised by developer, and they still look awful.

I can't believe there isn't something out there for this. I see badges all over other forums. Mostly gaming ones, but still. The concept is the same.
Anyone? :(

Why isn't there one?
Well it's not built in because it's quite a specific 'feature' that only a few boards would use. It's not something the wider forum population would find useful. That stuff was more popular in the 90s.

So then it falls to someone to write an extension for it.
