Badges

Badges are short term appreciation (or, penalties) earned by a member. For example, when we see some good work by a member, we give some appreciation badges. Or, when the member go the extra mile to help other members, we give a "Good Samaritan" badge. And in some unfotunate situations, we may issue punishment badges as well. Most of the badges have a limited lifespan. Some badges are permanent also.
