Hi Everyone,

I've updated the badges for watched video so they're based on time (instead of credit values), thanks to DoctorNow's idea.

I've also added a webpage with a list of the different badges and descriptions on how they're earned. You can find it here:

http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/wildlife/badge_list.php

Or get to it under Project Information -> Badge Descriptions from the nav bar.

Nice, but since forum and account page only shows seconds you may add the appropriate values to the page also, like I made it on my list - should make it easier for people who want to see how long they need for the next badge. As the biggest time is mentioned first, so it should look like:
48 weeks / 336 days / 8,064 hours / 29,030,400 seconds
45 weeks / 315 days / 7,560 hours / 27,216,000 seconds
...
Could be added into the tooltips also...

Added the seconds to the tooltip and descriptions. Figure that'll be enough because the credit is in seconds.
