Hey Scott, I didn’t get the badge, and I was a superstar in January this year: http://marketblog.envato.com/community/community-superstars-january-2015/. Can you please look into this? Thanks!
Good one! Thanks so much for catching! Badge re-awarded to you and your fellow January Superstars, enjoy!
Hello Scott, i remember we had this badge earned sometime back. But we didn’t get it with your announcement. Please ensure we earn it back. theem’on
Hi theemon! Have a check to see if this was definitely the Community Superstar badge (as opposed to the old silver superstar badge – now known as the “Amazing Forum Superstar” badge) as I don’t see your name in our records of Superstar winners unfortunately.
The “Amazing Forum Superstar” badge (the old silver star badge) is given out by Travis and other staff members when they see great community participation in the forums, and it just lasts for 30 days. Please correct me if I am wrong however with a link to a forum thread or blog post if it’s the Community Superstar badge. Thanks so much!
Ha, I just found it.
It was a silver superstar badge sent out by Travis (KingDog) to everyone who have taken part in the ‘Show Us Your Musical Instrument – Competition’.
Ah, good work finding the thread! The silver superstar badge however is what is now called the “Amazing Forum Superstar” badge, which remains temporary, and is different to the Community Superstar badge.
At least we got to the bottom of it, thanks again for finding the link!
Scotty, I’m going mad (or just old?) After coming back of work I spent about one hour to find some announcement of it – without success. I tried to check mails and threads.
All I can remember is that you (personal or envato) sent out a CS badge for a few authors who participated on what? Yeah, what was it? Any forum action I can’t remember as well.
I’ll go on searching for something which could help to remember.
Maybe an author with a memory of an elephant will remember and can help me!? Can you maybe?So, see you later. I’m persistent!
It may have been the Forum Superstar badge, perhaps you’re getting mixed-up with that? I don’t have any record of anyone giving you the Community Superstar badge unfortunately (they have always been publicly announced either in the forums or our blog since they began in 2010) but if it shows up let me know!
How about the authors who already have been a Community Superstar for 30 days, like me. Will they receive the permanent badge as well? Would it be even possible to be a CS a second time? Thanks Scotty!
Hi UJ! Yes! All previous winners get the badge. I added everyone I’m aware of earlier today. Are you on the list? Send or post me a link to the announcement so I can take a look. Thanks a bunch!
I want this badge too) Need I just to participate in forum live and be active? that’s all?
Be active. Be positive. Help one another. Be consistent. Do something special. Make a difference. Yes, that’s all. You can see some examples of how previous community members won/earned the badge in our blog announcements.
Challenge accepted, CRIKOVA?
Just a quick note to say that the Community Superstar badge is now a permanent badge. It was originally intended as a temporary 30-day badge but as we look to tidy up some of the badges and add new ones in the future, it made more sense to make this a permanent badge. After all, those who earn it thoroughly deserve it! I know several of you had asked about doing this also.
I’ve gone back and made sure that everyone who has ever been awarded the Community Superstar badge since 2010 now has it in their ‘locker’. The Amazing Forum Superstar badge meanwhile will remain temporary so keep being awesome in the forums and the secret badge elves will reward you.
If I’ve overlooked re-instating the Superstar badge to anyone, please let me know!
