Forums: Index > General > User badges - new feature

Hello! Your friendly local product manager here :)

I'd like to take a moment to tell you about a new feature we're enabling on your wiki, which we'd love to get your feedback on - "user badges".

With user badges you can tell everyone about the cool things you are doing on this wiki by:

  • Adding it to your MySpace or Facebook profiles...or anywhere else you have a profile on the web
  • Adding it to your forum signatures
  • Adding it to your blog, homepage or other personalized site

To create your customized badge, head to your Special:Preferences page and click on the "User badge" tab. There you can change the look and feel of the badge to suit your personality. A couple of my own badges are shown below:

We would love to hear about what you want to showcase on the badge in the future and value your feedback. Let us know what you think below.

Visit Help:User badge for more detailed info on this feature!

I think this is a great idea, Kirk! I'd like to see if this may attract more users to the Wikia. Fire away fourmers. SLJCOAAATR the SNN Admin Careful, it's a Faradox 01:18, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
