Looking through the Discourse files and seeing all of the amazing badge accumulation our members have acquired, I was revealed the holy grail of Discourse badge achievements.
That’s right. I speak of the mythical Example Badge.
First of all, what is it? We are given no clue as to the nature of this achievement, nor are we enlightened as to its means of accumulation. It is given no category besides “Other”, and here, it stands alone. You may compare it to that Philosopher Stone in the mirror from the first Harry Potter book…except maybe a thousand times more awesome and mysterious.
The only reference to this glorious treasure was by fellow Discourse affiliate @coasterspaul, equally mesmerized by the phantasmic revelation.
I call upon the powers of @SteveAdamo and @Geoffers747 to bless us with their clairvoyance to reveal the true nature of this, the most secretive of Stonehearth Discourse secrets, and whether any of us might be considered worthy of its glorious mantle.
…In all serious, though, it is a little fun to notice that no one’s gotten this yet.
perhaps… just perhaps… it will be given to someone who is a very good example to the rest of the community, such as being very welcoming, never breaking a rule/guideline, helping when help is needed, etc…
I wish I’d be eligible for such a rare award, but let’s be honest–my true contribution is writing lore and suggestions and building fancy things and working from the design side of the game to keep interest going and spirits high. Got to keep that “Master Builder” title meaning something…
Well, while I wait to ripen and no longer be new, I’m curious as to how to invite people onto the discourse. Cause, ya know, there are other shiny badges nobody’s gotten yet and might as well get some of those while also dragging my friends to an awesome site for an awesome game.
