What are the badges some user have and how do I get one?
if you hover your mouse over the icons they will tell you what the represent. You can earn these fun badges in many different ways.
Poi Contributor badge - Make a Poi file and contribute it to the community or just report a red light camera location.
Moderator badge - right now JM and I are the only moderators, however that may change in the future when we have plans to be away from the forums and want to have someone making sure that everyone is behaving themselves.
Active member - In order to get an active member badge you need to participate in the forums or contribute to the building of Poi files or the red light camera database.
Contributor of the week trophy - this is a special recognition award that we give out every Monday to one of two users that have been really active on the site.
Welcome to the site, let us know if you have any other questions
So how often do you give badges. I have contributed a poi file last Sunday.
Wow, it looks like you somehow slipped right through my fingers. I owe you an apology, I am really sorry that I missed that when I published your file.
My error now stands corrected and a poi contributor badge has been added to your profile.
Thank you for bringing that to my attention, sometimes I get busy doing to many things at once.
Wow I didn't realize how long it takes to make a POI file. Finding the Lat & Lon points for say my Zoo file was easy but I am also adding the complete address and phone number.
I don't think I will be making to many of these
Its acually very easy. I do it in mapspiece and then save it as gpx and then save it to a csv. Takes me about 5 mins to make a poi file.
Sorry mapsource not mappiece.
Dare I say it...
Badges...we don't need no stinkin' badges!!
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
How long does it take to receive a badge? The POI files for the California lighthouses are sure cool! (hint...hint...).
The POI contibutor badges are set manually, and we missed yours. It's fixed now -- sorry for the delay.
The POI's are easy now for me to make but time consuming to get all the information!
It sure can take a lot of time, Michael. I found them faster to create using Google Earth.
