More badges



  • Dears,

    I was thinking for an extra badge here in forums, it's for people who own Nokia Certified Qt Developer title and show the "certified" badge as the trolls have the "TROLL" badge underneath their profile picture.

    I think it can be a good marketing for the Qt Certification Program to have such badge in the forums.

  • I think this is a great idea!



  • We like the idea too. Thanks for sharing!



  • I agree. The ability to show the badge in the Qt DevNet forums might be another incentive to pursuit the certification



  • It's on the way. :)

    Great news! Thanks for supporting the idea :D



  • Now only I need to get that certification. Still waiting for the time to travel to Suriname to apply for one... ;)

    This is live now, I'm moonlighting as a certified developer so you can see what it looks like :)



  • I don't have Qt sertificate, but imagine what i have, so how i can set this bage? I must write to "Project Manger" and send scan copy of sertificate to e-mail or what?



  • We will probably add a screen to your profile where you can upload your certificate or provide your super secret key.

    Until then, sending an e-mail my way will work just as well :)

    I'll say a few words about that in the next update.

    hmm I'm able to see only "TROLL" under your nick, nothing else.



  • Yeah, I was only wearing it for a day or two, I had to hand it back in. ;)



  • Another thing I've noticed with badges and with user short profile at all. If we look at previous comment by MariusG we will notice TROLL badge, and count of posts. If we look at "this blog article":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/blog/view/wiki_changes_and_proper_previews_week_22 we will notice that near with MariusG there are no badge, and no counters (yeah, maybe forum posts is something not needed there, but maybe put points there?).

    The profile box will be improved to look more like it does on the forum, probably not for this weeks release but soon. Thanks!



  • Hi there,

    As per more badges I think it's good idea to add the Qt Ambassador badge as well, what do you think?

    Yes, you have my "vote" for this proposal! ;)



  • I agree, a 'Qt Ambassador' badge would be nice.



  • Is having several different badges going to be a burden on the admin or should we keep coming up with more ideas? Perhaps a community contributor badge for those that have had their code included in Qt?



  • Are badges supposed to show on your profile page as well? I do see Troll badges appear, but I can't find a Certified Dev badge on a profile page.

    That also raises the question: is there a way to search for users? If no, should there be such an option?

    Only the Troll badge is on the profile page, but that will change, the others will be added.

    To search for a user you can use "http://developer.qt.nokia.com/member/memberlist":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/member/memberlist
