I’ve added an ‘avatar flair’ image to BlenderArtists team members - check it out on my avatar to the left of this post. The flair can’t be forged as it ‘sticks out’ of the round avatar image, making it easier to identify when a message is ‘official’.
cool, so this would be for moderators and admins?
Yes, that’s the idea
That’s cool, could this be used for any other badges, like the migration badge? I’m still welling with pride at the success of our community fund raiser and would love to show it off.
It’s not part of the regular badges system, but rather an extension of the Discourse ‘groups’. It certainly could be used for the migration badge!
I did a quick test with a stock badge image (needs to be redesigned, obviously). Is this what you had in mind?
Note that we can only ‘award’ one badge this way.
Only one badge or flair shows, but folks should still be visible if you look at the group, right?
Well, only one ‘flair’ shows. Badges are not displayed here, but when you click on a username:
that’s awesome, I love it!
