Microbadges are really fun and they are about to get even more fun!

In the meantime, those of you who are lucky enough to have more than one badge can now re-arrange them.

Go to your Profile (the icon is on the top of the page. It looks like a little person).

Click on "Manage your microbadges". From there you can re-arrange your badges in a different order, and that order will be how they show up in the forums from now on.

You can also remove a badge from that page, if you want to. At the moment, though, there's no reason to remove any of those badges because they were assigned by the system.

Very soon, however, you will be able to add more badges yourself and those you can add and remove at will.

Sooo cool! One question, in order to get more badges, we won't have to sell cookies door to door will we?

No. Smiling We're starting to build up a collection of them right now. Soon you'll be able to browse a list of them and add them willy-nilly as you wish. It'll be a fun way to personalize your space.

Some badges are reserved for the system to give our (like charter members, for example). Those can't be added. But there will be a whole class of "free for all" badges.

We'll also have some for regions, some for interests ("Daylilies", "Roses", etc) and so forth.

SO excited for new little microbadges -- never heard of that term before but I am loving it!

You can now add a daylily badge or a Texas gardening badge. Go to your profile and click to manage your badges, then look for the link to browse and add badges to your account.

More will be coming soon!
