Badges and Reactions - what would you want?
There has been some talk of creating a badges and reactions plugin. I'd like to start this discussion as a place to describe what you would like to see in the plugin. Please, lets try to keep this on topic and see if we can come of with a list of actual specifications.
1. The current on hover set of buttons works for me. I wonder if any UI designers would have any ideas on improving this?
2. Badges is currently a gamification scheme without the game. It needs leader boards or some other way of acknowledging those users that have made valuable contributions and hence earned badges. What other ways can the game be improved?
3. I'd like to see a complete redesign of the user profile page for 2.1 with more emphasis on the contributions and badges for that user rather than an activity list.
1. There is a default set of badge icons and names. Those can be renamed, add/edit/delete/hidden and the icons themselves changed.
2. There is a default "trigger" for each badge (ie 10 LOL's equals an LOL badge). These triggers are configurable.
I haven't thought a lot about this so that's all I have right now. Anyone else?
