    Any of these would mean so much more to me than the other nonsensical badges! Might as well throw out a suggestion for one I haven't seen yet... How about the "You owe me a new keyboard/monitor, because you made me spew my coffee all over everything" badge??

    @Hermitism sent me an interesting link earlier. Apparently, a group called H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio has been collaborating with Vanilla's development team for some time now in the creation of some new and useful badges for forums, under the New and Useful Badges for Forums program.

    The PAF was selected as a test site, and it appears that after a review of recent forum activity, they've built some badges for us to use in some PAF-specific discussion scenarios.

    For instance, when a member is particularly grumpy, they've issued:

    Sometimes threads can get a little out of hand. Did you do everything you could to keep that thread from going off the rails to Crazy Town? Well, The H&M Creative Mischief Design Studio Team wanted you to be recognized.

    Say Hermitism? Have you ever noticed on some threads, things can be zipping right along, everyone's contributing and having a great time, and there's lot of great info-share going on, making great strides toward World Peace and so forth? And then wouldn't you know it, along comes a post that sort of hoses up the flow?

    And here's one to help save the Classifieds Patrol some time, and to be able to respond more quickly to turn back the Not a Member But Try To Sell My Stuff Anyway attempters.
