We are very pleased to announce that the Awards and Badges have now returned to the forum.
Some of you will see that you already have some awards or achievements in your forum posts. Those who already have them will have got them as a result of the transfer over from the old site all that time ago, however, a lot of you won't have them.
If you do have them or when you do get them they will display either on the left under your name or at the bottom of each post. Awards are on the left and achievements will be along the bottom. You can also see all the award and achievements you or anyone else has by looking at their profile and you can see what awards are available and who has them by clicking here:
So how do you get them I hear you ask. It's easy. For the most part you just ask for it. Some of them we can verify such as serving officer status, the badges such as Long Service or Jubilee medals we will award on request based on trust, if you say you got them then we will award then. If you shouldn't have them then you really do need to be asking yourself just how sad is it that you want to display a badge on a forum signifying an award? Add on to that the fact that eventually you'll likely be sussed as not really deserving of it and then that's just embarrassing when you are outed.
In the very near future there will be many more added and these will be for things like post counts and Likes etc. These will be automated and will be with us soon.
If you want a badge then they can be awarded by any of the full mods so all you need to do is send them a message or speak to them in the chat room (when available) and they will do the rest for you.
