Badges

I've done some updates to the site again, most notably are the "badges", which are partly inspired by Xbox 360's achievements. Those batches are displayed in a user's profile and can be collected by different ways. For example, there are batches for submitted top highscores in individual game modes, for submitted site content, or for PVB Coding Competition projects. There are some more for you to find out, and more will probably follow.

I wanted to say first that I really like the updates you've been giving to the site, especially some of the cosmetic changes.

That said, I just wanted to state (if you weren't already aware) that some of the functionality is lost a little when using the Internet Explorer browser - the most noticeable effects being in the side menu of the site. The site is still usable (and awesome as always) but navigation becomes a little harder.

The only other thing I've noticed - the sound byte (Red Alarm) at the site's entrance doesn't play. I never realized there was one, until I visited using Firefox.

Like I said, you may already know of this and this might be a useless post.

I love the badges! Would it be possible to either put them (or a smaller version of them) to the left of posts under our avatars, or make an easy way to add them to our signatures? (Like a [badges] VBcode tag, perhaps.)

Good idea! I was thinking of the same thing, and will definitely try to add small icons under the user avatars on the forum. :)

Thanks for the hints. I am aware of both problems, but fixing them were nowhere on my TODO list. I think I fixed the hover menu problem in IE for my band's site last year, so I will soon try to get it working in IE as well.

I agree with Dan. They're a bit smaller than I would have done, but still a very nice addition. Good job!
