Bump. This is one of the longer running projects. I really think badges would improve participation, even at this late date.

Doesn't look like it's gonna happen unless a user makes a set of badges for the project. Maybe not even then...

Message 22102 - Posted: 1 Mar 2019, 13:21:59 UTC - in response to Message 21063.  

Hi there!
Just found this thread by accident while checking back on this project after a few years.
Since I made a few badges to other projects in the last years I may give this a try, but I cannot give any guarantee that I can make it good enough, and since I'm an employed and working person more or less it can take a while until all of these are made.
As my contribution here is a list of ideas for badge names - loosely orderd from the nearby and more familiar to the more exotic or distant.

Moon
Planet
Star
Neutron Star
Black Hole
Star cluster
Dwarf galaxy
Galaxy
Galaxy Cluster
Filament
Wall
Void
Quasars
Baryons
Neutrinos
Dark Matter
Dark Energy
Gravitational Lensing
Cosmic Microwave Background Temperature
Cosmic Microwave Background Polarization
Big Bang
The Universe

Hm, this list is a bit long and I doubt, some of this objects could be transformed into a badge, but I will try to do my best.

Sorry, unfortunately I didn't had much time to do anything about them yet.
Also, since no admin did answer to it anyway if it's appreciated I thought it wouldn't make much sense to start...
I don't want to do a lot of work just only to see that the badges never are implemented.

Good point about Admin approval .... He approved years ago, but that has been a lot of clock cycles.

I made some badges for Cosmology@Home to freely use aka public domain. I only spent 20 minutes making them as I have never made them before. I only had GIMP software to use so they are very rough, but it's a start and anyone is welcome to use them. (^:

Um, originally badges were being considered to implement after a server upgrade. That was in 2015. Several server upgrades later... Just saying :)

The Cosmology project is for the most part unattended and stuck in autopilot. Examples are SPAM in the forums and no Admin feedback.

Unless the Admin returns and resumes control I would suggest that you use your CPU cycles elsewhere until the day he chooses to care again.

This is the path that many older volunteers have taken.

As I rarely move my CPU power from WCG, a badge system just might me get moving to another project - like this one. 👍
