Are there any plans for badges?
Such a nice project here with so much subprojects deserves to have badges.
I wonder why no one brought this up yet. ;-)

Once, on an email exchange with Greg, I pointed that out. I also think it is a great idea and it will bring more people to the project.

This is something that David is looking into incorporating into the standard BOINC code. Once that happens, I will deploy them here.

Looks like David decided in the end to not make it a standard BOINC feature, which is unfortunate since it now requires a custom project solution. I'll look into what some of the other projects have done, and see if I can incorporate their code.

Well, I guess making it a standard is not that easy because badges are highly customized anyway on all the projects which have badges.

And don't forget that some of your contributors might be willing to help make the badges or give input on how the scoring system should work. There has been a great deal of discussion at some of the other projects about them.
