Badge delay.

I was wondering about the badge system. The requirement for one of the badges is to have been a member for 2 years. I joined on April 21st 2010, and have not received the badge. I was wondering if things like this require approval by admins or something and that is why there is sometimes a delay like this? Just wondering. No big deal.

    It appears when I log in there. And even here, on Tom'S Hardware, I got a message saying that I received it, but it doesn't show up on my profile. Weird.

    Yeah I was surprised when I realized that it had been 2 years. Of course, I was inactive for quite a while though.
  5. Well yes, sometimes the badge is delayed for days : )

    When did u get it?
  6. As u can see here, if u hover with mouse above the section, a msg pops up with detail.

    And as u can see, my badge is missing too : (

  7. Yeah my badge is on Tom's guide, but here it is not. And on Tom's Guide, there are only three, where I have 5 here, and none of them the Captain badge. I guess ill just have to wait.
  8. Its a bug in the system, its there to stay, till the bug is fixed.
  9. It's a bug like nikorr stated.My capt. badge is there too.
  10. Now let's not forget about my lieutenant's badge...
  11. Wow, found my Captain and Admiral badges. Stupid bug.

    I know how you feel : )
  13. jrwizbang, do you play Killing Floor on the dedicated server? If not, then it must be someone else named the same...or I am completely mixed up :/
  14. I do play killing floor sometimes but haven't in quite a while because I have been without my desktop for a few weeks.
  15. Should. Doesn't mean that you'll ever get it :P
  16. Not even a year yet :heink: though it feels like one...


  17. In my opinion, if we have to have badges at all, there should be one for folks like re-conuk and amuffin for getting so many posts on the clock in such a short time. The automatic badge upgrade just for being here is almost as farcical as the number of times they fail to appear. - especially in the UK Forum.

  18. Sometimes I think too much of my time is dedicated to this website. Though I mostly use this website at school and not as much at home anymore. Plus, I just realized I have 4 more best answers to go, before I get my GOLD cpu and components badge!!! :sol:
  19. Monthly ranked 1st? Dang...
    Though I did maintain 1st place for four months in the cpu and components section...Plus, I really started using the website in november. All of that time from june/july I never used the website :P

    This is what I got:
    Global rank: 47 out of 738440 (38917 points)
    Monthly rank (April): 5 out of 738440 (6361 points)
  20. Looks like we got some competition going on :P I come on here as much as I can but between high school, sports, family, friends, extra curricular stuff, volunteering, music production, and various other hobbies, the amount of time that I can spend on the forums is limited. Though I do try :)

    I'm about the same age as you are, and I do spend like maybe 30 minutes or so, during school days. But since it's my summer vacation, I spend more time here than usual. :)


  22. No competition then - you're both here for the right reasons. It's comforting for me,, at my age, to know that you at yours, have such a good attitude to others you seek to help. That should keep Tom's going for another century. :D

  23. You're in summer vacation? What? I don't get out until June 22nd.

    Yes, I'm having my summer here right now. It's different here in India. It's from March to June.
    But I understand that in the US it's from June to September or so.. :)
  25. Yes it is. Yeah that makes sense since you are in India.
