Thank you for your kind words my friend, and thanks for alerting me of this. That is what the badges were all about, showing the more contributing and harder working members.

Just chiming in to make sure that everyone knows...
All of the points, flags, stars, applause, post count info etc...
Are still available in each member's public profile.

I mentioned this in one of the other posts about the "disappearing" points and tags/labels.
Why not have an option, like the "go light/dark" button in the top left corner that a person could click on if they preferred to either see points/badges/labels publicly on every post or not.
I'm making a prediction here.
Admin will end up taking this away from us because we're not mature enough to handle it.

I think its a good move, people where just starting bogus threads and multi-accounting it up to boost themselves with stars and flags.
The community in each forum knows who contributes the most and those people are respected by the community that should be reward enough in an environment like this in my opinion.
