Nice badging system to involve members 👍🏻

Badges are stupid. I am not a child. Stop wasting my time with this.

@Laura Short Finneran  - you know you can just ignore them, right?

Sorry if that sounds grumpy, but I'm curious as to why you have such a problem with them?

Badges should be opt-in, not opt-out. 

I'm offended that a platform I use for business encourages this type of childish behavior (doing stuff because it would get me another badge, not because it's something I actually need to get my job done).

@Laura Short Finneran  - why?

I think you need to have a think about what this platform is for.  It's for a Community of people who have something in common.  An aspect of a community is socialisation, and games are a huge part of socialisation.  So it's natural, and a good thing that a community platform implements some gamification.  If it were optional, I'd say the default should be that you are in, and you can opt-out if it really bothers you that much.

But as it's a useful and helpful function for what the platform is for, there's no technical support for turning it off by person.

But you can opt-out.  Simply ignore it.

@Laura Short Finneran A lot of people enjoy the badges but to each their own! I will turn off your badge notifications, which is what I recommend for people who aren't interested or are actively annoyed by the feature. 

You can adjust that in your notifications settings anytime.  It's under Manage Settings > Notifications > Settings.

Time to hunt for the badges.

What I have just explored represents my performing in your field.
