Could someone explain the badges on the forum to me?

Hey there!

I’ve always been confused about the badges and such on the forums (the star, the wpmu logo, the colored membership bars), but now that the membership levels have just changed, I’m totally confused.

I used to be elite, now I’m gold. I think I was a ‘friendly neighbor’ before, and now (after y’all have been so kind) I’m something called “El Presidente” and “Super Volunteer”.

Not that it matters in the least, I’m just kind of curious. And I couldn’t find anything about it in the forum search.

I think this page: explains why I’m gold, but I wasn’t expecting that. :slight_smile:

Thanks! (and if you can point me to an old thread, that would be fine.)

    thanks for the post.

    the star is representative to how many posts you have made on the forum, i am actually unsure exactly regarding the squiggly lines icon, but i believe it also to be based on posts &/or member level.

    then there’s a gold cup, this represents that the user has achieved lifetime membership status.

    hope this helps a bit.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
