      If you look at other member profiles, you’ll see that some members have a large number of badges on their profile, like this:

      From day one in the 300 Hours Community, you can obatain a multitude of points by discovering and earning badges. The more you explore the forum, the more likely you are to stumble upon a badge! To get you started, we’ve put together a list of a few that you can get.

      First Comment
      First Comment – Your first comment gets you a badge. That was easy.

      10 Comments
      10 Comments – more comments gets you more badges!

      Photogenic
      Photogenic – uploading a profile photo puts a face to a screenname.

      Name Dropper
      Name Dropper – addressing a fellow member by using the @ mention.

      Socialite
      Socialite – inviting at least 5 your buddies to the forum via our invite form.

      Twitter Connector
      Twitter Connector – Enabling Twitter sign-in (your details will remain hidden).

      Facebook Connector
      Facebook Connector – Enabling Facebook sign-in (your details will remain hidden).

      Level I Completed
      Level I Completed – Passing Level I, and entering your results in the Results Analysis form.

      Level II Completed
      Level II Completed – Passing Level II, and entering your results in the Results Analysis form.

      Level III Completed
      Level III Completed – Passing Level III, and entering your results in the Results Analysis form.

      This is Sparta!!!
      This is Sparta!!! – Failing your exams, and entering your results in the Results Analysis form.
      This shouldn’t be an incentivization!

      For the last 4 badges, please allow a few days before the badge is awarded as there is a semi-manual process we have to go through.

      There are many other badges that are up for grabs – some more secret than others. If you see a badge on another member’s profile that you’re curious about, you may find out how to earn it by clicking on the badge itself.

      Happy hunting!

      But 1 question? If I get the points, what do I do with it? or what does or will it signify? like would their be levels of membership? I just thought to get some clarity? I’m a noobie you see.

      @imdnextbuffet Points are an indication of how involved you’ve been in the forum. We’re thinking of reward tiers for points (e.g. get XXX when you reach YYY points) but yet to decide on something concrete.

      What we have decided is to give away prizes to the top 3 weekly leaders every week until the June exam 🙂

      I think 1 million points for passing in June sounds about right 😉

      @imdnextbuffet
      – if you’re first, you get a free copy of an Elan 11th Hour Guide and the 3H Results Analysis Report just in time for your exams. 2nd and 3rd will also get a free copy of the 3H Report.

      @Diya – the week is still young!

      You can also earn Facebook and Twitter badges by connecting your accounts. I don’t think they’ll reveal your Twitter and/or Facebook details, but rather you can just sign in using these accounts and share discussions etc.

      @maroon5
      why not still be on top. So what if you got elan guide. Thrive to be on top for as long as you can, for you know there would be others to knock you down.

      As far as competition yes lols many join in the forum so more competition in a way good for the website only.

      You can pass Level 3 and not be eligible for the Charter. Plus even if you eligible for it, it can take a long time to get the necessary references (i know of someone that took a year to get the charter after passing L3!).

      A badge would act as an incentive 🙂
