The general guide to badges for badgers
What are badges?Notice those shiny images under tropers' avatars? The badges are a new feature implemented for the forum users.
How can I get a badge?Pretty easily, actually. First, you have to go to the badge shop. You can reach it by clicking on the badge shop icon in the top bar of a post. It looks like this.◊ The badge shop contains a display of all available badges, sorted into a number of categories.
Ok, so I got to the badge shop. What do I do now?To buy badges you will need to buy tropies (our imaginary currency, symbolized with Ţ). Tropies can be bought via PayPal or credit card. Each tropy corresponds to $1, and each badge costs 1.25 tropies. The only exceptions are badges in the TV Tropes category, which are more expensive as they are rather special. Now that your tropy account is all charged up, you can get to the badge shop and shop to your heart's content. The steps are really easy:
- Add the badge(s) you want to your cart.
- When you've picked what you want, go to checkout items. Choose "buy" from the menu for all the badges you want.
- Press check out.
- Profit! Congratulations, you just got a badge!
