I'm still new here and just learned what acorns were for. I had 20 so I spent them!

But I'm curious--are new badges designed? How does that process work?

I'd like one specifically for zinnias, since there's a dedicated subculture of zinnia breeders here (me, Zen_Man, and a few others). I have an idea as to what would make a good badge, but I don't know if it's even possible.
Keep going!

I was wondering if there could be badges for aquaponics and hydroponics.

Thank you for your reply. It had been more than a month since I asked so I had assumed that this was a stupid question. Ha ha. It is good to know that others are thinking along the same lines.

I accept badge submissions from people who make them, and occasionally I make them myself. But I am very picky about what I allow for badges and I have rejected many badges in the past.

If you want to make one, I can give you info on the specs. @Horntoad has made badges before.

Well we already have a badge for cacti (you have it, AgaveGirl1).

I'll see about aloe and agave badges.

I don't know what size you want, Dave, but here is a fish for aquaponics:

And a water drop for hydroponics:

Click to see the actual size. This is blowing them up horribly.

Ok those look good. In order for me to use them, you'll need to email them to as 32x32 PNG images with transparent backgrounds. - [email protected]

Woah, this thread took off while I was away!

I have no idea what I'm doing (haha). Is this transparent and the correct dimensions? This is what I had in mind for us zinnia breeders.

You can't post actual badges here, that's why they would need to be emailed to me. The system at garden.org converts them to unusable jpegs.

The zinnia badge is cute but doesn't really have the look we're going for here.
