Introducing Community Badges!



We’re always looking for more ways to recognize you all, our fun and fabulous members, and we have something new we’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.


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 – 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, we’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 you’ve already logged into Community more than twenty-five times, you may find that you’ll earn all three of these badges right off the bat. 🥳 Yay you!


For the next few months, we’ll be rolling out even more badges to showcase actions that members have taken around the Forum. Eventually, you’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. 🤩 Stay tuned for all of the colorful badges we have in store – we’re sure you’ll want to collect them all!



Where can I see all the badges I’ve earned?

The brand new “My Badges” page is your go-to destination to view all the badges you’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 member’s Badges page by clicking into the number of badges they’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 – that means that you haven’t earned those yet (although we’re sure you’re well on your way! 😉). 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 – just as an example. 😊



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 can’t give away too much of our secret sauce, it’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 – after all, they’re some of the most active in the BIC! 🙏



We hope you’re just as excited about this new Community feature as we are. 😋 Stay tuned for more badges to come – we can’t wait for you to collect them all!

@TeamBIC  🤗 such a fun new feature! Will this be available to see in the mobile app soon too? 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Hi @Missnur we *wish* it was in the mobile app! But, alas, not yet. And truly not sure when it will happen, but it's on our never-ending wish list 😂 So for now, check them out on desktop and mweb! Yay!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

@CarolBT   I can see the Badges on my mobile browser and it works great! Yay!! 💕

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

WOW 🤩 Thank you so much @TeamBIC! 🥰

It must have taken you guys a lot of time, effort, creativity and talent to do all the great work you put in place, to make this place as wonderful as it is for the community! Really nice of you, Thanks again!!
If I referred to the information, there will be several different badges that we can obtain, this is cool 😎

I can't wait to see what they will look like. I'm really excited about the launch of this new feature!!


Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Fun! Thanks for the update and looking forward to some badges! 


Side note, still hoping they will fix those of us who still can’t post to the gallery soon! 💗💗💗🤩🤩🤩 @TeamBIC 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

I'm glad you said soomething@sister13! I have been trying to get into the community and post to no avail. I had no idea what was going on. I hope it's fixed now. 

Re: Introducing Community Badges!

Sadly, this feature is still a no go for me, just tried again. 😥😥 @thecatsmeow
