Inquiry about badges

Hello… What is the purpose badges? What are they used for?
How can I earn badges? Please to me.

Most of the badges are designed to help new users learn how to use the forums, such as ‘Read Guidelines’ ‘First Edit’ and ‘First Quote’

Some of the badge are used to show the users trust level such as ‘Member’ ‘Super User’ and ‘Moderator’

And yet other badges simply designate users activity and the amount of time the have spent on the forums, such as ‘Bookworm’ ‘Helpdesk’ and ‘Devotee’

There are various ways to earn them, you can look at each one here.


If you meant the badges you get from completing modules, etc-they are earned by finishing modules, projects and courses. I think they are just there to encourage you, and to show progress.
