    Here's an example of me manually giving a badge and/or points.


    Here's the dialog the moderators can use:


    One other thing we haven't spoken about is that you can allow your moderators to deduct points from a user when they are warned.

    Yes, the badges you see here will be included by default in Invision Community 4.6.
    There are many pages in the ACP. On the front end, viewing a member's profile shows you which badges they've earned.
    I'm not sure if we are going to do a "here's all the possible badges you can earn". I'm not sure of its value. We don't want to turn the community into a game. It's designed to reward good contributions and not encourage pure engagement for engagements sake to win points and badges.
    Yes, it does work across all apps. The profile link is also in this screenshot 😄
    Not yet, but we already have this down as a future expansion idea.
    You can rebuild points and ranks at any time including post upgrade. It's what we did here. We had 21 million data points to look at, and it took about 5-6 hours.
    Reputation and points are still separate. One thing to keep in mind is that we don't want to turn a community into a game. An early rule I put in place was that we were not going to show point logic and show people how to specifically earn points, and which actions earned the most points because that will start to erode the purpose and people may decide, if you said that you earn 5 points for a post and 10 points for a gallery image, to reduce posting and start uploading random pictures just to earn points and rank up.

    We do not want this. The achievements system is meant to be a reward for great contributions, and not the purpose of the community.

    To this end, we will not be showing how you can earn points, and the rank thresholds.

    We do have on our list a way to give you a weekly update about how many points you earned, so you may get an email with "You earned 205 points last week, that's 20 more than the week before" for example to keep you updated on your progress.
    You can opt in to notifications to get a push notification / inline notification / email when you rank up or earn a new badge.
    You are seeing the entire system from the perspective of a user. There is a "recognise" system that allows you to manually award points and/or badges for content.
    Yes you can manually give points and/or badges.
    Yes, you can add a "location" "and" clause to specify just forums, or whatever app and set up points per thing differently.

    I won't argue with that. I'm just trying to show the potential other side of the coin we may have to consider - and any improvements here should always be seen as a positive opportunity to shout home about rather than just keep hidden.
    After all, some badges can be 'hidden rewards/surprises' alongside well-known ones. That's what makes achievements a great addition with a great potential.

    Kind of, you can set up a concurrent log in, it's one of the new default rules.
