The discourse forum software has its own badges feature — see Fedora Discussion: Badges. This is, unsurprisingly, focused entirely on use of the forum itself. Of course, Fedora has our own Fedora Badges, which cover all sorts of things.
This has always kind of bothered me, and as use of this site continues to grow, bothers me more and more.
So, a straw poll.
- Just leave 'em; it is fine.
- Rename Discourse badges to “Forum Flair” or something
- Disable Discourse badges on this site entirely (it’s an easy checkbox)
- Wait, hold on — bring all of the badges here!
