New Feature Idea - Swap Badges

I’m enjoying the badge system and am wondering/hoping there will be swap badges? Like for first time hosting, first time swapping, completed ten swaps, twenty, etc. An angel badge… :slightly_smiling_face: Looking forward to swapping in any form! :grin:

Loving the sound of this, Reinikka! Split & moved it to new feature ideas, so no one misses it.

I hate this idea because I would so try to get them all XD if there will be swap badges. My son hates gaming with me because I want all the starts and badges, and knowing there are badges I will never get is horrible:P I’ll live, but I’ll try to get them all

This is a really cool idea and more incentive to join swaps.

Hey! :slight_smile:

Do you guys have any visions for the hypothetical swap badges of the future? Share your ideas, if you have them. :heart: Be descriptive. I’m a visual person. :grin:

Badges for 1st swap, 10th, etc.
badges for hosting 1st swap, etc
Badges for being an Angel (hopefully not needed)

The Bubbles badge, inspired by @Magpie 's secret swap identity a few years back, awarded to someone who surprises/stuns the world by sending a crafted package to every single person in the swap (not just their assigned partner), when doing so seems preposterous if not impossible.

How about Earlybird for never sending late?
Or Swap Heroics for finishing the swap despite illness or other catastrophe?
Or Cat Herder for hosting a very large or complicated swap?

@jemimah earned that already for the little good things swap, surely! She sent such lovely things to everybody, and there were a LOT of everybodies to send to!

And @thanate earned that one, also for the little good things swap. Who didn’t join that one? lol!

This is the happiest thread ever. I’m just going to hang out here all night.

…maybe I’ll get a “I’m Just Happy to be Here” badge. :smile:

YES, they need those badges!!! :grin:

Also could do Seeing Double or Double the Fun for taking an extra partner to help the numbers come out right in a swap.

“First Three-Way” for being partnered in a round robin situation :rofl: or would that be a “Swap Triangle”? :thinking:

“Swap Stalker” for someone that actively participates in the swap discussion and gallery but doesn’t swap

Hilariously accurate.

Well, we’d surely get lots of traffic from Google with this one. :rofl:
