"Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!" is a widely quoted – although misquoted – line from the 1948 film The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Viewed pedantically, however, if they don’t need no badges, then what they’re really saying is that they need lots of badges!  And that’s our point!

Badges are a way of thanking you for participating in community discussions. 

We’ve updated our badges and added a few new ones.  We’ve also started a review to see if we can come up with some more!

If you have any ideas, we’d love to hear from you.  Let us know by posting your feedback on our bugs and issues discussion group.

For our second birthday, we’ve ‘gifted’ existing members with ‘birthday’ badges:

  • Founding member (joined in 2017)
  • First birthday (joined before 19 May 2018)
  • Second birthday (joined before 19 May 2019)


What's the use of this badges?

Hi @browne06 the badges are just a fun way of recognising contributions and support from our Community members. It’s like unlocking achievements in video games!

Please ensure there is no personal information, reference numbers (eg TFN) or financial data in your post.
