Hi all!!!πŸ˜€

Like the subject reads, what are badges? What are they for? And where are they found?

Just wondering πŸπŸ€”

Badges are icons that represent your gardening interests. They show up on the right side of your posting header. You 'purchase' them by using the acorns you have accumulated by adding photos, comments, etc. to the database. Your post header will only display 12 (? I think) badges at any given moment, but you can rearrange them by going into your profile. Poke around, buy a couple, and play with them. Warm welcome from the PNW.

Hi Mindi,

Deb has pretty much covered it, so I'll just add a link to the full list of available badges:

If you look at the top right of my post, you'll see some of mine, such as a kangaroo for Australia (where I am located) and badges for Lilies and Orchids (my main gardening interests).

The current profile image is that of Iris 'Volcanic Glow'.
