Hi there. I hope I'm not out of place asking this here, but I was really hoping for a bit of a FAQ or more in-depth explaination of the badge and levelling system here. I know that you get awarded badges and points and such for doing various things, but I don't know *which* badges mean what, how far through a level you are to receive which badge, etc. For example: I completed a work order and now have an artisan badge, but I don't know which level of badge it is. Is it the first badge, the third? How many more badges above mine are there? 

Thanks in advance ^_^

I'm sure I'm not the first person to read this post and think of the "Badges? We don't need no stinking badges" movie quote. I am the first one to publicly admit it though. :) I wish I could be more help Marrra. Badges just happen as I participate. I don't really know the nitty gritty details. Hopefully someone with more knowledge and less silliness can give you a real answer!

Unfortunately (Fortunately?), Marrra and I are perfectionist (her more than me!) when it comes to achievements.. :P

If you look at your profile, many categories have progress bars to the next level. But which levels grant badges, I do not know.

Leadership (Valor points) Badges: http://www.gaiscioch.com/about/valor_ranks.html I've not seen the other types of badges specifically enumerated here on the site. However, if you view your profile, you can see your current rank in each discipline, along with larger images of the badges you've earned. In general, your first rank in a discipline gets you a base silver badge. As you rank up, you get little stars. After some rank, you upgrade to a gold badge, which later gets little stars. After 4, the stars become a celtic knot. For example, if you look at the image in my signature, I've got the base silver Valor (purple and yellow) badge with two little stars, because I've only led one event. Same thing for the Explorer (green/grey) and Scholar (orange/black) badge, for adding Marketplace recipes and making forum posts, respectively (multiple points per recipe, one point per forum post - yes, I make a lot of forum posts). I have the base gold badge for Kinship (blue/black) with no stars, because I've attended many events. I'm sure this isn't all the information you're looking for, but I hope it helps.

It's the current rank stuff I'm confused about. It's still showing me at level 0 with Novice title. My current progress: But Jayven is showing: Is perhaps the automated system not working? Not showing the correct levels and such?

Try this link: http://rift.gaiscioch.com/about/badges.html The menu bar which displays under the green Gaiscioch icon changes depending on where you are. However, to get back to home, click the Rift icon below that menu bar line. This will take you to your Membership Command Center. The menu bar will now read, "Home, Membership, News, Participate, Guides, Discussion and Links." Clicking on the Membership area of the menu bar will give you a drop down. The right side of that drop down has lots of the information you are seeking. A quick way to get to all that is with this link: http://rift.gaiscioch.com/about/member_information.html I hope that helps.

Also note all awards are calculated at 1am pst so if you rank up it wont show until the next offpeak time wehn the script does its calculations.

Thanks for that, I'll check it out. Also, I didn't know there was a daily calculation time, so that would probably have something to do with it. Thanks!

Also Marra, Artisan points are not on all marketplace orders that you fill. So It depends on what you've been making for folks.

I still do not see any REAL information about each badge and what it represents by level, or even how to distinguish the level by viewing them. I think it would be a great addition to the site to create a thorough explanation for them. I also think that somewhere in the Family structure page there was an explanation for my topic on this forum ... "Rank na ????". I have had many curiosities about these type of things, but nearly all of them became clear in time. These last curiosities remain. Thanks for any information. Fraternally, Drae
