Some of you may of noticed a couple of new badges appearing on gardener profiles at the beginning of the week – this was the first little step in rolling out the first of our badges for seed swapping.
Basically, this means that if anyone completes a registered swap on Folia this will count towards the following badges:
- First Swap – the first seed / plant swap you successfully carry out on Folia
- Seed Swapper x 10 – for sending 10 swaps
- Seed Swapper x 30 – for sending 30 swaps
- Seed Swapper x 100 – for sending 100 swaps
All historical swaps before now have been calculated and badges awarded. From here, you’ll instantly be awarded the badge once you have reached the threshold and this achievement will be listed in your activity and your follower’s activity. You’ll also get a nice little email just in case you’ve missed all that other action ;)
Along with this, you’ll now notice that all of your existing badges on your dashboard and profile pages are now hooked up to badge pages explaining how they were earned, and who else has also achieved the same badge.
Furthermore, we now have a nice little leaderboard of seed swappers for 2010 and for all time to encourage a little bit of friendly competition :) I think we have ourselves a challenge: let’s get swapping!
