Introducing Community Badges!



Weโ€™re always looking for more ways to recognize you all, our fun and fabulous members, and we have something new weโ€™re bursting to share! Starting this month, we will be rolling out another opportunity for you to show off all your contributions to the BIC: badges. โœจ


Keep reading to find out more about these new additions to your Community profile, FAQ-style!



What is a badge and how do I earn one?

A badge is a visual representation of your activity in the Beauty Insider Community โ€“ and each one is totally unique! For example, you might earn a badge for starting a conversation in the Forum or receiving hearts on one of your Forum posts.



How many badges can I earn?

In March 2023, weโ€™re debuting our first round of badges, featuring these ones which members can earn by signing into Community once, twice, and twenty-five times respectively:

  1. Welcome
  2. Welcome Back
  3. Community Connoisseur


If youโ€™ve already logged into Community more than twenty-five times, you may find that youโ€™ll earn all three of these badges right off the bat. ๐Ÿฅณ Yay you!


For the next few months, weโ€™ll be rolling out even more badges to showcase actions that members have taken around the Forum. Eventually, youโ€™ll also be able to earn badges for your participation in other Community platforms too, such as Ratings & Reviews, Questions & Answers, and the Gallery. No matter how you like to engage in the BIC, there will be a badge for you. ๐Ÿคฉ Stay tuned for all of the colorful badges we have in store โ€“ weโ€™re sure youโ€™ll want to collect them all!



Where can I see all the badges Iโ€™ve earned?

The brand new โ€œMy Badgesโ€ page is your go-to destination to view all the badges youโ€™ve earned in the Beauty Insider Community. You can visit the My Badges page by signing in and clicking the right arrow in the Badges module on the Community Home page, as seen here:





Alternatively, you can get to My Badges or another memberโ€™s Badges page by clicking into the number of badges theyโ€™ve earned on their Conversations Activity page within the Community profile:






PRO TIP: When visiting your own My Badges page, you might notice some badges appear slightly faded โ€“ that means that you havenโ€™t earned those yet (although weโ€™re sure youโ€™re well on your way! ๐Ÿ˜‰). Just like all of your earned badges on the Badges page, you can click on these to read their descriptions and find out exactly how to get them in the future.



Are badges related to my Beauty Insider Loyalty status?

Nope! Your Beauty Insider tier has no impact on the number of badges you have in the Beauty Insider Community, or vice versa. You could be an Insider with ten badges, or a Rouge with five badges โ€“ just as an example. ๐Ÿ˜Š



Are badges the same as Community ranks?

Nope! Like ranks (which you can read about here: Demystifying the Community Rank System, badges are earned based on your Community contributions. That said, Community members collect badges as they move up the ranks.


While we canโ€™t give away too much of our secret sauce, itโ€™d be safe to assume that members who earn most of the badges available to them will likely also be of a higher Community rank โ€“ after all, theyโ€™re some of the most active in the BIC! ๐Ÿ™



We hope youโ€™re just as excited about this new Community feature as we are. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Stay tuned for more badges to come โ€“ we canโ€™t wait for you to collect them all!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC love this idea! it's so nice to recognize people's contributions here ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC Sounds interesting! For the logging in one, do we have to log in and out each time? I usually just stay logged in. 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@Samtian Great question! ๐Ÿ™ For badges based on logins, the system counts the amount of times you've literally clicked the "Sign In" button in Community.


(I think it's safe to say you've definitely logged into Community more than 25 times in the past, so you're very likely going to get all three of the badges we mentioned above: Welcome, Welcome Back, and Community Connoisseur. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•)

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@Samtian I was thinking the saaaaame exact thing ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@TeamBIC @This is such a cool and fun add on to get members more engaged.  I canโ€™t wait to see what badges I get. 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

I bet you'd get most if not all of them @SportyGirly125 Hands down you are one of the most helpful members here!
