TSW should implement a user badge system. The badges would appear under the user's profile. Different badges would denote strong positions on one side or the other of particular topics that become heated or are debated for a long period of time. Historical examples could be Flutie v. RJ, Edwards v. Losman, trade Mario crew, draft Manziel, etc. Current ones might be EJ backers, EJ bashers, It's the coaching, Kool-aid drinkers v. F.O. bashers, preseason doesn't count crew, whatever. You could create different badges for post numbers, reg. date, etc.

Moderators could decide when a user has earned a particular badge. It would give a way for users to size up other posters and see where they've been on different topics over time-separate the trolls or those who are always positive or negative.

E: Meant to post in suggestion box.

no. like Mead said, it'd be too much clutter. what would be next? Those annoying adopt a player banners and all that stuff?

This forum is kept simply and neat and makes it very readable.

Agreed. Posters are known by the mark of their paw. It doesn't take long to discover what burning issues are imprinted in the noggins of those who live in these environs.

We don' need no stinkin' badges.


Except for one badge, earned by people who suggest stupid board features like "badges." I'd get behind that.

I know I'm late to the game on this thread...I happened to be reviewing the Customer Service threads...

I think DC Tom should get a little badge for humor.

Well okay but how does that give him a sense of humor?

Is this sort of like the Tin Man in Wizard of Oz?
