Happy 2014! One of the first new features of the year is our new badge view that we released this afternoon! Here’s a little summary of the details and reasoning behind it.
- You can now click on your badges and a popup will open displaying the details of the badge
- There are badges that have tiers/levels and badges that don’t. If a badge has multiple levels you will see an icon in the actual badge. In the popup you’ll also be able to see what levels you’ve reached and what criteria it took to get there. Click the “See All” link to see more details.
- One downside is that the count of number of badges you have has probably gone down for most of you. This is a new way that we are counting badges where we no longer are counting each level as an individual badge. The main reason for this is because we’re making room for more badges.
- Bigger badge images!
- Oh and did I mention… more badges soon!!!
This is where you may see a slight difference. We no longer include the number of times you have leveled up for each badge.
Click the “See All” link to see how many times you’ve leveled up with a specific badge
If a higher level is available you’ll see what it is and the criteria to get there. Cool huh?
We are still taking a close look at a couple odd things during this change (including a few reports of missing badges). We’re on top of it and any issue with this should be resolved soon!
