We understand these awards are not much, and they are kind of “cheesy” if you will, but we really wanted a fun way to be able to award members for their contributions to the project. We also wanted a way to make members aware of one’s expertise, status, location, etc, without having to look directly into a users profile. This system allows us to do all of these things, and we will be adding many new features as time goes on, so their will always be something new. Remember, these badges and ranks are for fun, so have fun with it!
How to earn Points:
Points are earned by performing various actions across the website such as replying to forum topics. Essentially they are an indicator of how experienced you are with our forums, “bragging rights” if you will. We thought that points were far less cheesy then old school forum rank titles haha!
How to earn Badges:
To get an administrative region badge, upon registration, please indicate in your forum profiles “bio information,” the region you are must knowledgeable in (if any). Same goes with Non-Regional Badges, simply indicate in your bio information that you are a dual citizen or whatever the case. The more information you enter, the better the community will get to know you, and the more likely new badges will be added to your account in the future.
“Balikbayan” -You are married to a Filipino, or are a former Filipino.
“Dual Citizen” -You have retained your Philippine citizenship after being naturalized in a foreign country upon filing and taking an oath under Act 9225.
“Expat” – You are either 1): A Filipino citizen or a former citizen who is living outside the Philippines. 2): A foreigner who is living in the Philippines. To qualify for the expat experience badge, members should have been living away from their origin for GREATER than 1 year without returning home.
More may be added later…
