    Creating Badge Reward System For Membership Site

    Hello! I'm not sure if this post is in the correct place, so please move it if I put it in the wrong place!
    I am a complete NOOB so please excuse my ignorance. I am trying to build a badge award system for my membership site where after they complete an assignment they are awarded a badge to their account.
    I'm sure this is much more complicated than a simple "do this!" but I have been searching the web for a couple hours now and am not finding anything helpful. If anyone has any advice/expertise, or could potentially point me in the right direction of some resources I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you so much!!!

    Assuming members have to log in to access this content, then you'd probably need to leverage the database on the server side to record which things they have earned badges for; so you'd need to incorporate code on the server side to store/retrieve that data, and then display it on the client side (the details of which will depend on how your browser-side output is generated (e.g. a thick-client approach like with Angular or a thin-client approach where all the output is generated by the server-side code).

    search for "gamification". Gamification is the term generally used for systems that track what users do and then reward them for doing them. There are companies that specialize in add-ins for this type of feature.

    You might also look at what software you are using to drive your website. There might be add-ins for the website software you are using that adds gamification features. For example, this forum software has a number of features that reward people with badges or other abilities based on certain things happening -- such as number of posts, ratings, time on site, etc.

    Good luck!

    14 Feb 2017 - You need to make sure that any gamification that you add to your site is actually relevant. Whilst you might like the idea of an all-singing all-dancing points, badges and leaderboards system, if it's not actually relevant to your topic, your members or the goals of your membership site, then it's only going to ...

    Thanks guys! The thing I'm having trouble finding is how to actually implement. I have found some third party applications, but I'm just lost as to how to apply them. I can't find clear instructions. I guess I'll just have to do more research.

    Also, sorry for the duplicate post Super Moderator. When I originally posted it wouldn't pop up in the forum so I thought something when wrong so I reposted.
