Forums: Index Request Booth Request to Disable Badges

Hello guys, Crimsonnavy here. I am here to suggest we disable badges for the time being. As of now, our users are somewhat inactive and Winxfan and I are the only ones who are steadily collecting badges. I suggest we disable them from now on in the Winter and Spring and reactivate them in the Summer and Fall when people are more active.

Please only vote if you have 150 mainspace edits.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBallnnavy   C  S  18:34, April 11, 2012 (UTC)

Support the disabling of badges

Support Support: I think with me and Winxfan being the only ones gaining badges at a steady rate, by the time other users are active we may be too far ahead for others to catch up and that's not really fun.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBallnnavy   C  S  18:34, April 11, 2012 (UTC) Support Support: Badges are just sad. They promote bad editing and half the time the edits are null edits. I've wanted them gone since my first edit here. Hell, I've wanted them gone since I first received a badge on some random wiki. I want to be exempt from badges so badly. They just need to go. zzi  18:44, April 11, 2012 (UTC) Support Support: Per above comments. I've seen enough users spamming articles with random categories just to get some badges. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 20:03, April 11, 2012 (UTC) Support Support: Yes, per the above, badges have never seemed to be a good investment to the wiki, in my opinion. — Wattz2000 21:41, April 11, 2012 (UTC) Support Support: I find them irksome. Although I do like the lucky edit badges because they're informative, but the rest of the badges... meh. —   ChaosVoid  10:20,4/12/2012

Comment Comment:I was so close to getting that One Year Badge. Now what do I do?

Comment Comment: What you do is don't get it. You continue editing like you normally do. The badges were a plus, a bonus, we might enable them again when we get more users. And we'll have to start over so it'll be fair game for everybody. --Jazzi 11:28, April 17, 2012 (UTC)
Comment Comment: I thought the badges were saved.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBallnnavy   C  S  16:45, April 17, 2012 (UTC)
Comment Comment: Just checked it out on my test wiki, apparently they are saved. I think what I was remembering was that edits made during the time they were disabled aren't counted. – Jazzi 16:48, April 17, 2012 (UTC)
Comment Comment:Is the Badge track being kept up to date? My days count is 216 and it'll be 217 tomorrow morning.

Comment Comment: To my knowledge, everything is paused until the badges are re-enabled.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBallnnavy   C  S  20:58, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

Update

Since this is five of our consistent editors, and we'd just need Winxfan's opinion, we should be good and be able to disable them. I'll let Crimson disable them as he brought this forum up. – Jazzi 22:12, April 12, 2012 (UTC)

Done.  CrimsCrimsonnavy PokéBallnnavy   C  S  00:10, April 13, 2012 (UTC)
