SBC Christmas Gift: New Badges & Achievements Guide

Recommended Posts

Ho ho ho, merry Christmas SBC! :donkey:For this year’s Christmas present, as part of our current achievements system, we’ve added 4 brand new badges and redesigned the level ranks on your profile to fit the SpongeBob theme (courtesy of Patty for those). You may have already encountered the new badges by now, but they are: Voting Machine, Bran Flakes, Enchanted Tiki and Jellyfish Hunter. I'll explain later in the thread how to obtain them.

For those not aware, we updated to IPS 4.6 back in late September which comes with their own new achievements system. Certain actions on the community will award you points using automated rules which will level up your rank. For veteran users, this may remind you of Tv.com's (rip) emblems and also a mix of vBulletin Experience. We also used this new feature as an opportunity reboot our badge system. However, I know a few users have had questions on how exactly this system works and how you earn points. I decided to wait until we had new badges to introduce before explaining in-depth. Now that we have those, here's a comprehensive guide on how to get points and what new badges you can obtain through this system.
