We love celebrating products, but we realized that we could congratulate the community on their achievements. We launched badges last month with an initial set, but we can’t get enough now. If you haven’t seen those yet, go to your profile and add badges to your showcase so other users can see what you’re most proud of earning. We want to launch another set of badges this quarter (we’ve heard a lot of you request a badge for long streaks), so please submit your ideas here, and we’ll try to make some of them happen!

This is such a great question! To have a badge the identifies categories of what makers have launched. I think it would be easier to find and connect with resources in our niche/industry.

Badges are fun! Let me think of some ideas... - Hitting a milestone (e.g. hitting 1000 upvotes / comments / followers) - Upvoting a product that ends up becoming a Product of The Day - General badges for the Golden Kitty Awards (winning, being a finalist, voting for a winning product...) - Making the top product in a specific topic (e.g. Chrome Extensions, productivity...) - Leaving a helpful review on a product (could be measured by number of upvotes + replies?) - Participating in an event (IRL or virtually) - Being the first to comment or upvote on a product (aside from the maker) - Sharing a product on Twitter or Facebook

Really love this idea! We have been looking into badges for our own product so this discussion is a very helpful way to see how people think about it
@5harath Badges are a great idea! There could be a "treasure hunter" badge for hunting a not so PH category product but super-useful in general.
