Silly badges


#22

Was that meant to be Ironic or not? Unsure?! :wink:


#23

Fortunately there is no compulsion to use badges, so it is not possible for you to know how many '308’s there are (or who we are).


#24

Aha! - but you can! (though of course my lips are sealed on how exactly).

@Aaronb is right - there don’t seem to have been any new members appointed (elected?) to Club 30/80 since June of last year - presumably as punishment for that unfortunate incident involving the banjo and the fire extinguisher.

  1. Mwahahahaha…

#26

It’s very easy to see how many members are in each group, and exactly who they are too.


#27

and my “certified” badge isn’t ticked…whatever previous work colleagues have told me :slight_smile:


#28

Is this the Ghost of Mr Tallis?


#29

I see there is not any news about the Uneducated Northern Oick Badge…I dont live in expectation !!! UNOB


#30

I think it’s time your designed your own, Sully! :wink:


#31

will do when I get my ipad back…


#32

Alas no. I can only aspire to Rick’s wisdom and insight.


#33

I’m sorry but whichever way you look at this ‘badge’ idea, it’s really naff isn’t it? Apart from being somewhat divisive, what possible good is having a virtual badge? Reminds me of McDonalds (fries, burgers, drinks etc) stars.


#34

Not me, i like them


#35

I still enjoy the fact that all who participate in this discussion have to click on its title.


#36

What’s wrong with being silly and light-hearted? We fiddle while Rome is burning.


#37

I honestly cant say I feel strongly one way or the other about the badges. They’re just there. I don’t really think about them that much.

(other than the much coveted 308 membership, which I assume unlocks hidden forums and great wines)


#38

Of course it does, but you have to know the secret handshake first…

I completely agree re the badges. They’re a bit of fun that you can view as a little feedback from the forum itself or just completely ignore. Most of the time I completely forget they even exist. After the first flush of ‘firsts’ when you initially join you really see very little of them.


#39

Where do you thnk the ‘missing’ Golden wines went? :star_struck:


#40

Don’t even mention the secret Platinum wine giveaway.


#41

The first rule of the 308 Club is ‘We don’t talk about the 308 Club’…
