[Sticky] All about the badges
Badges help identify you to other members as credible and reputable members of our community.
We give badges to recognize valuable contributions and activity on the forum as well as for accomplishments such as being featured on our Instagram account. These badges are displayed on your profile page and below your avatar on the forum.
How do I earn badges?
There are a couple of ways you can earn badges:
Engagement on the forum
Your activity on the forum unlocks badges. Every time you log in, post something, reply to a post or like a post on the forum, you earn points called studs. Different combinations of activities and stud totals unlocks badges automatically.
The Community Manager awards badges for achievements like getting featured by the Features Mod or being selected as a winner by the Theme Mod on Instagram, as well as for being outstanding members on the forum.
These badges are manually created and given by the Community Manager.
For Instagram-related achievements, the Community Mod creates a badge and a story on the Brickcentral account that you can save to your Instagram profile as a highlight.
If you are registered on this website, the Community Mod will also add the badge under the Achievements tab of your profile page. The badge will also be displayed automatically under your avatar on the forum.
How do I save my badge to my highlights on Instagram?
When you are featured or picked as a winner on Instagram, we'll create a story with your photo, a badge and a mention.
You'll get a DM with a preview of the story if you're following Brickcentral (and you should be if you're using our #brickcentral hashtag).
Above the preview, you'll have an option to repost the story by clicking on the "Add This to Your Story" link. You'll have 24 hours to do that before the original stories disappear so be quick!
After you've added it to your story, you can save it to your highlights, so it doesn't disappear.
How do I see my badge on the forum?
The badge appears under your avatar beside any public posts you’ve made. If you haven’t made any posts, your badge will only appear on your profile under the Achievements tab.
Automatically earned badges show up right away while manually awarded badges may take a bit of time to appear.
Who awards the badges?
The forum system awards automatic badges and the Community Manager awards manual badges.
What is the meaning of the "Italian flag" medals... it's probably very obvious, but I can't find the meaning on the forum ???? .
Aha! Thanks for clearing that up, i thought you won second prize in a contest by @the_aphol or something ????
???? I've just rolled them out today. Still a little bit wonky so i need to fix some things.
For example, how did @the_aphol hit level 2 before you? Dun, dun, dun! A mystery!
???? Well... Marco is probably a charming guy... and I... well... it’s not easy being green ???? ????
