We are developing badge extension for AnsPress which may release in 30th of October. We would like your suggestion and ideas for default badge names and when it should awarded.
Some existing badges:
– Autobiographer : Completed profile
– Commentator : 10 Comments
– Supporter: First up vote
– Nice Answer: Answer score of 10 or more
– Good Answer: Answer score of 25 or more
– Great Answer: Answer score of 100 or more
One answer will be selected as best and user will get lifetime license of badge extension.
We will always be grateful for all that you have done to help us.
I think if you make the icons/images and names hard-wired you risk them just not being bought/used, or even returned for a refund.
Names which would be appropriate for one site may be totally inappropriate for another.
Personally, I would let site admins name them as they want ~ which resolves the translation issue ~ and I would just allow admins to insert icons or images, maybe from a nice set that is supplied with the plugin.
Can’t wait to see the badges back: you guys are working around the clock!
I don’t want to add any extra work or to interfere with current development but I’m already using a badge system for other activities on my site and it would be great to have the same system for everything. It’s called BadgeOS and it’s opensource I believe. You can create your own badges with the name you want and lots of other possibilities like the ones @Dima asked. Plus, it’s compatible with Mozilla Open Badges !
I’m no programmer but I believe it’s just a matter of creating an add-on that basically add Anspress hooks to BadgeOS.
This is not only a personal request. BadgeOS is used by quite a few educational websites (I’m an educator) and releasing as Anspress add-on would attract attention to your project. A question & answer system is much better than a regular forum when it comes to education and I’m sure Anspress would benefit from it. 😀
Thank you for AnsPress and I love the idea about badges.

I suggest exactly this: http://stackoverflow.com/help/badges
This badges was thought of for years, tested on really huge userbase, widely successful. Reinventing a wheel would most probably do no good.
