    As many of you may have noticed by now, we’ve refurbished many of the badges, implemented new ones, and have added several new features to the website. Below is an updated overview of the different obtainable user groups we have on the forums along with their colored username and associated badge.

    *Badges for Administrators, Moderators, Coordinators, and Founders have been replaced with user group banners.

    Moderator: Given to moderators on the forum.

    Coordinator: Given to coordinators over a specific WoW bracket on the forums. The role has spread into a variety of positions, including Social Media Coordinator, Arena Ladder Coordinator, etc. This is a staff position, however they should not be mistaken for moderators. For more information on this role click here.

    Knowing Conq, he will think of another new badge to add by the end of the year - so it's a possibility. =p

    Don't think its in the cards, rather hand out badges for making accounts rather than making BGs pop.

    Is that suppose to happen? Seems excessive but I genuinely don't recall if this was previously mentioned, there are better ways to encourage users to sign up than giving everyone a badge by default.

    I'm not against HK badges for 100k and 250k.

    I get that. Its just annoying that there was a thread with close to 75%(I think) community voting in favor of a 100k and 250k, or just a 250k badge and nothing was implemented. The thread was locked and I'm guessing deleted. Again i would like to press this in favor of the twink BGer, support all aspects of twinking, even if its just 1 badge.

    I think a badge for those with 100k and 250k Honorable Kills feels consistent with the badges we currently offer. We can justify other badges existing, so why not add this kind of reward with the others currently available?

    This isn't the first time it's been discussed. It keeps coming up. Let's not miss or waste another opportunity to reward those characters with HK milestones. Arena badges are in place, so why not the other PvP activities too?!

    I agree, users should be rewarded for dedication to the play style.

    More or less what Noco might be trying to say is, award people with a badge that showed that person caused Blizzard to fly all the top ranked Arena players out to their HQs and find out why player participation was up the most in BGs instead of Arenas/RBGs. And who made Blizzard change the whole PvP system into iPvP. Also the reason they separated the brackets in WotLK too. ; )

    Another badge has been added! I present to you the 'Music Lover'. It's been assigned the pink user color in honor of @Laurasia. She's not only brought music to the community for years, but was previously a part of the staff team. Here's to you!

    I'm like a year behind you. But I was a bad boy and my first account was banned. I think my 2nd, 3rd and 4th may have been as well. Good shit.
