On this page we would like to provide some example badges - created by Zendesk - that you are free to use in your Gather communities!
Here's an overview of the example badges:
The exact naming of these badges is of course easy for you to change as per your liking. But we thought it would help to get started with some graphical and inspirational material for your community's user badging system.
Click the links below to download the individual SVG files which you can use as the icon when creating badges.
For community members that are good at getting a conversation started, sharing experiences and knowledge, or soliciting feedback of others.
For users that take good care of the fellow community members. We recommend rewarding people who take an active part in maintaining the community's code of conduct and a general good tone of voice.
For someone who provides spot-on solutions to other peoples problems and questions.
For users that have authored great ideas for product feedback or special uses of your company's services.
You can use these badges if you want to indicate some type of skill level or hierarchy for your users.
Roles / Ranks
Here are some common roles that we see expressed as title badges in communities:
- Community Member
- Community Team
- Community Moderator
- Community Manager (or Product Manager)
Is there automation or tool that automated add badge to users when they contribute (posts and comments) more in level like badge?
At this time there's no way to automatically apply badges to user profiles. These will need to be manually applied by an admin on the account. This is something our Gather product managers are looking into but I don't have any additional information to provide at this time.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
can these badges be awarded automatically once the user has reached a certain level of reply, answers, upvote ?
In its current state, badges will need to be rewarded manually. That being said, this is something our Product Managers are aware of and are looking for ways to automate the process. I would recommend creating a feedback post around this functionality in our Feedback on Gather topic for our Product Managers to review. You can also copy and paste the following template when writing up your feedback post: Product Feedback Post Template
Thanks so much for taking the time to share this with us!
any update on this....Can the badges be awarded automatically? Thanks
No updates at this time – as Brett said above, posting to our product feedback forum is the best way to build support for this idea. Thanks!
