These badges are awarded based upon how much a person contributes to the site. A member may add items, such as links, videos and files, or translate resources, like vocabulary words, phrases and readings.
Each badge has four major levels: Helper, Pro, Master, and Lord. These are shown by the colors green, red, blue and orange, respectively.
Each major level has four minor levels, shown by the number of stars on the badge ribbon. This leave us with a total of 16 levels for each badge type.
These levels are obtained by scoring a certain number of points, depending on the level and type. Points are based upon the item contributed and the amount they are worth. For example, translating a single word is worth less than a phrase. A phrase is worth more than a video but less than a file.
|Title and Position Badges|
These types of badges signify where a person is in the community as far as positions and doing certain tasks. Some are relatively easy to obtain, like getting a home or joining the language exchage. Others depend on a person's commitment to helping the community, like becoming an approver for an area of a board moderator.
