Will we keep our badges?
Hi Stylius! Yes! Badges stay. They will be presented somewhat differently and users should expect some further tweaks along the way, but I think for the most part I actually prefer the new way. Can’t say anymore, today’s the day the forums will launch, not long to go now!
Scott just wrote and told me I’d been voted favourite forum member.
Wow! What a crazy honour. Thank you to everyone who voted for me, and to all forum contributors past and present.
The forums are such an integral part of the Envato experience. They’re an open, friendly, entertaining and relaxed place to come and hang out – a place where veterans and newbs alike can compare notes, where we can inspire and motivate one another, share our knowledge, our inspirations and our successes; and just as importantly share our frustrations and doubts, or air our grievances.
The forum is really just the sum total of those people who contribute, and I’m very happy to be a part of that community.Here’s to the new forums!
Hear, hear, well said! And completely well deserved. Well done again, felt_tips!
