Message 1378 - Posted: 27 Aug 2013, 10:59:12 UTC - in response to Message 1376.


Whatever Badges the Project comes up with I'd like to see a Badge for each Step over 90% ergo 90-91-92-93-94-95-96--97-98-99-100


I think we should not start awarding badges before reaching 95%. On the one hand you should need some motivation to reach higher levels and on the other hand it's a lot of work to design the badges.

I suspect the only people that you will see @ 100% are ones that are new to the Project & they hand pick a few Videos to insure their right & then stop watching them to keep that status.


They will continue watching videos to reach some of the first video-watching badges. Should be no problem what you mentioned IMO.

Message 1384 - Posted: 27 Aug 2013, 11:52:41 UTC - in response to Message 1376.

I suspect the only people that you will see @ 100% are ones that are new to the Project & they hand pick a few Videos to insure their right & then stop watching them to keep that status. Maybe there should be a minimum of Video's watched to even qualify for a Badge ? and or a Minimum of Video's watched Per week/Month to keep a % Badge ? Just random thoughts, there should be some effort put into the % Badge though I think & an attempt to try to Improve yourself % wise ... Not just watching a few Video's @ then sitting back enjoying your 100% Badge ...

Don't overdo it. ;-)
Actually I think it's already enough that the project is calculating and showing a percentage at all, this will keep the most watchers alert to not make too many mistakes. At least for the % I wouldn't need a badge at all, the other ones are more valuable to me somehow.

Well, I didn't had much luck with finding a good template for making a badge with eyes...
So I gave it another thoughts and had the idea for a dartboard, so this is the next (and last) try:

Unfortunately it is hardly recognizable as a dartboard also, with using colours around anyway.
What do you guys think?

Okay, if you're satisfied, then what % should I do?
You actually posted 90%, 95%, 98%, 99%, 100% earlier.
Are the others okay with that?
Then I will start tomorrow.
On what level range the different colours will be available will be my decision first. ;-)

Edit:
Sorry, did not saw you posting, Defender. :-)

Well, I think badges below 95% aren't needed, they are to easy to reach. And 100% isn't needed too, no serious video watcher can achieve this.

For somebody just starting out 95% isn't that easy, mainly I think because new members don't fully understand how to make the Video's. I know the ? Tip's are there for info on proper Viewing & Marking but nobody reads instructions until things are so mucked up for them then they get the Instructions out.

So Badges from 90%-95% would give new members a little hope anyway, if they can't get 90% then they need to definitely read the ? Tips ... ;)

Considering that there are eight colours (I probably use the Ruby here again) and using Steve's suggested scheme I would have to make 88 badges! That would be way too much I think.
Defender's scheme are 48, and Travis' ones 40.
It's not about the work I have with that - it's somehow easy to make with putting the number in it and make a little colour around - but we are already a project with a lot of badges, which will be even more somehow sometimes in the future when some people probably reach the limits.
Therefore I like Travis' suggestion, which includes the 90%.

??? You lost me, why in the world would you have to make 88 Badges for only 10 Badge Levels ???

90-91-92-93-94-95-96-97-98-99-100 that's all you need to make, there's no need for 90.1-90.2 etc your either at 90 or 91 & on up etc

Well, then I would need no colours at all.
I thought of Defenders idea to make colour badges for different time levels, just for example like this:
after 2 days watched videos: Bronze 95 99 100
after 4 days watched videos: Silver 95 99 100
after 6 days watched videos: Gold 95 99 100
and so on...
Depends on how much of you would like that or not.
I can go for only one row of % also which wouldn't depend on time at all, but as far as I catched Travis he would like to see something like this.

I prefer the system without time. Just five badges: 95%, 96%, 97% 98%, 99%
Or, if you want more badges: 95%, 95,5%, 96%, 96,5%, 97%, 97,5%, 98%, 98,5%, 99%, 99,5%.

I don't know what their intentions were, I thought the same as mine but could be wrong, you could still use 10 different Colors for mine. I thought the idea was to just have a Badge for the level your at with no Time involved. Travis & Defender will have to enlighten us on just what their thinking ...

I thought you would like it because you posted that system from Diablo III...
Well then, values with ,5 would be out of it anyway because the badge is too small and it would look bad.

Ten different colours wouldn't be possible, we only have 8 with names. ;-)
But it also wouldn't be a problem to make one row with different colours - bronze for 95%, silver for 98% and gold as 100% for example.
Anyway, I'm not a fan of this 1%-range, so I would rather use Defenders or Travis' scale. ;-)

I wanted to show you the style with the frames around the avatars. But now we are talking about round badges, like the CPU-badges, so I'm fine with that as well. I don't know where you have read out of this that I prefer a system that includes the amount of watched videos? To make it clear: I do not. ;-)

Hm, you are right. Forget about it.

Okay, you've pissed on anything I've suggested so I'll butt out ...


Are you 69 years old or 14 years old? Don't be upset. I'm sure Doctor didn't want to offend you, but the problem with the missing colours is something that has to be discussed.

Edit: Travis suggested 90%, 95%, 98%, 99%, 100%. In my opinion reaching 90% accuracy is nothing that should be awarded, some work should be implemented to reach a badge. And 100% isn't needed too, no serious video watcher can achieve this, as I mentioned before. So, finally I like my scheme! :-) But Travis is the boss and has to decide.

No problem, looks like I prejudicely jumped to conclusions then. Reason could be, that I am/was a gamer who played games like this also with passionate... ;-)

I'm quite surprised by Steves reaction also. I didn't say anything personal, just my opinion that I'm no fan of such a long 1%-range. But I also didn't say I don't make it. If the majority would like that (wonder if we have any with only a few people here), I have no problem to make it.
The thing with the colours is a real problem we probably can discuss endlessly.
As we introduced 8 colours on the cpu-badges 3 from the 11 ones wouldn't have any. Anyhow, thinking about it I could use two additional colours - at least one should stay black like a dartboard normally is, presumably the 90% (or the lowest) in this case.
I also could make 90-95% black and the rest with colours or only the last three with colours - so the possibilities are endless.

Travis suggested 90%, 95%, 98%, 99%, 100%. In my opinion reaching 90% accuracy is nothing that should be awarded, some work should be implemented to reach a badge. And 100% isn't needed too, no serious video watcher can achieve this, as I mentioned before. So, finally I like my scheme! :-) But Travis is the boss and has to decide.

As someone mentioned (oh wait that was Steve!) I thought about awarding %-badges only after a minimum of watched time, maybe 2 days or so - along with the time based badges which are no option now anymore.
Personally I think the 100% should stay, as a special bonus. It's obvious that no one can hold this forever when he watches and marks seriously every video he gets, but at least as newcomer and you make some days without any error it is a little satisfaction I think. ;-)

I think 95, 96, 97, 98 and 99 are just fine (pretty sure 100 would be impossible to get anyways). Maybe a 99.5 but I don't think that's necessary. Maybe later in the project if there are way too many people sitting at 99% and we need a way to spice things up a little bit.
