Re: Achievements and BP 1.2
The irrationalgames.com example is exactly what I was thinking of. It seems to me that sites that incorporate some kind of graphic badge into their achievements systems get far more adoption than sites that do it with just text/email notifications. FourSquare, Hollrr, etc
I like @modemlooper’s idea to put the badges under a profile tab. I would also love to come up with a way to tap into this for my blog themes — so that users who have achieved different achievements would have those badges displayed with their avatar (a kind of way to display their authority and credibility).
