Would you like a badge? Awarding Superfan badges and Scientist badges! Also blogging accounts!

We've got a whole fleet of new badges for the site.  They'll be higher quality images soon.

We've got two badges that we're willing to give out to people who ask based on certain criteria.

 

SUPERFAN BADGE displayed below your name

Do you consider yourself a huge fan of the Rational Response Squad?  If you would like a superfan badge under your name please make a post in this thread requesting a badge.  If we are unfamiliar with you, you may want to link to your myspace or make a positive statement about us when you post your request.  The badge has a special little treat to accompany it and because it does the Core leadership of RRS will have the final say on whether you can have the badge.  Essentially if we suspect you're in the non-superfan group, and you're just trying to snag a badge we might not apply the badge.  If you're an atheist, and you've posted a few times here already, that's good enough to ask, it's worth a shot.  We'll likely approve many people that ask. 

The "superfan" badge was designed to help give some status to those that cant afford a membership, or don't have a membership but they want to make their support for the RRS apparent in their posts.  You can ask to have it removed if you change your mind later, and vice versa (we may change our mind later based on your actions)

If you have NO MORE THAN ONE BADGE UNDER YOUR NAME, YOU MAY ASK FOR A SUPERFAN BADGE IN A VERY BRIEF POST BELOW.  In order to keep page load times down we will not approve superfan badges on people who already have more than one badge.

 

SCIENCE FREAK BADGE

Are you well versed in science?  Maybe you have a degree?  Post exclusively in the science forum?  If you've shown yourself to be knowledgeable in scientific endeavors you may ask for a "Science Freak" badge in this thread.  Todangst, DeludedGod, LeftofLarry, Yellow#5, HambyDammit, and the rest of the core will ultimately decide if the badge gets approved.  The scientist badge has much tougher requirements than the "superfan" badge, so if you haven't shown your proficiency in the field of science on this site yet, please link to any work you have done elsewhere to help our mods decide if you meet their requirements.  If you carry a degree in a scientific field or work in the industry please say so.  This badge is designed to help distinguish those who really know their stuff, so that others can look towards you for advice or suggestions when in scientific debate here on the site. 

Please don't take offense if you aren't approved before others, our mods will continue to revert back to this thread to determine if the person warrants that badge yet.  If you already have a badge or two, please consider skipping requesting this badge to help keep our pages loading fast.

This badge was previously the "Scientist" badge but it was changed due to a few peoples request to make this badge more relevant to the users.

 

BLOGGER ACCOUNT

The blogs on our site are only available to subscribers however if you would like to blog on our site, and you are an atheist, you are also able to request the upgrade to become a blogger on our site, right here.   If you are a past blogger and haven't been able to blog since the blogs went to membership only, please ask for a blogger account.  If we are unfamilar with your work, and you host a blog elsewhere, you may link us to it, so we can learn more about your style.  Anybody who would like to be upgraded to a blogger account but can't afford a membership should post the request here in this thread, and somebody will review your posting history.

 

MODS PLEASE DELETE THE CONTENT OF ANY POST BY EDITING THE POST WITH ANY CHATTER OTHER THAN REQUESTS FOR BADGES AND BLOG ACCOUNTS IN THIS THREAD TO MAKE IT EASY FOR OUR CORE.  NO SIDE CHATTER PERMITTED IN THIS THREAD AS WE EXPECT MANY REQUESTS AND WANT TO MAKE IT EASY TO SCROLL THROUGH THEM ALL.

I wouldn't mind having a badge (superfan - I like science but am not as knowledgeable as I once was). I'll let you know about the blogger upgrade - not sure what you'd want from me there.

I would love a suprfan badge. Even though my post count is low I have visited the forums several times a day for months,and for months before I joined. The RRS has been instumental in my buding atheist activism,and I promote the site whenever I can.I"m a fan!(Will beg if neccessary)

I'd like a superfan badge, I

I'd like a superfan badge, I think I would say I am. I don't think i'm well known here but certainly not a stranger.

 

My superfan activity would include:

 

- Being the only person in the UK i've seen wearing RRS Gear

- Getting called a yank for wearing it (haha)

- Posting links, having you as my #1 on myspace

- Contributing where possible to the site and it's cause

- Wearing RRS gear when playing shows/ in band photos

- Recommending  this site to everyone who shows the slightest doubt to god

hmm thats all I can think of at the moment XD

 

Oh I love you guys, and this site changed my life.

It's nice to know my "fangs"

It's nice to know my "fangs" are well known around these parts and I didn't even have to ask for the badge, it was popped on me. COOL!

Thanks for the badge guys. Now I have to get back to BBQing kittens and spreading atheist cooties.

Brian the badge was actually created in your honor.  It ticked us off that we didn't have something that gave you props for being such a good and loyal long term friend.  You and I go way back before the creation of RRS.  And for those that don't know Brian is about 60% of the reason for the RRS name, and I am the other 40.  Thanks for always being there man.  We were going to originally make a "loyal friend" badge but didn't want it to sound dogmatic at all.  Eye-wink

I am god as you and Matt Shizzle also go the badge without asking.

Wow dude, I seriously teared up reading this. I hope you can understand how honored I feel at this point.

BUT, in any case, there are TONS of people who helped and they are just as important, if not more important. Jake, Matt and so many names it would take eternity to list them.

I am just one supporter and a small piece of the puzzle and there are countless people, not just on this atheist site, but others as well that are out there spreading reason and logic.

This reinforces my attitude that you don't have to be rich or own a website or write a book, you just have to get involved. Every poster here counts. Everyone who challenges theistic claims, be it face to face or on Christian boards or other atheist websites, YOU DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Enough of the sappy stuff, I need to get back to sharpening my fangs.

I'd like a superfan badge. The only reason I'm not a subscriber is because I've been out of work for months. Plus I've defended RRS on RD.net and YouTube (as wonderist).

Hmmm, that scientist badge would mighty fine on me... too bad I really haven't done anything to merit it. No, seriously, I haven't. It's something to work for, since I'm heading in that direction anyways Laughing out loud

I was actually going to post a topic in "Trollville" asking for an "Evil" badge, or something fitting to those corrupt few of us that frequent this site. But since RRS brought this up... might as well ask in here ^_^

 

So i hearby request that i be assigned an "Evil" badge... or "Evilist"

Since Superfan just doesnt seem to fit my... personality

Geez, I've been so busy I forgot about that.  I made her a superfan, and you can feel free to send her links to every show we've ever done to return the favor.  She's a sweetie, left a nice voicemail for me back in the day.

I could go for the scientist

I could go for the scientist badge, hopefully I fulfill the requirements. I am currently a graduate student in astrophysics at Iowa State University, and I'll get my PhD in 2009. I have an undergraduate physics degree from Lund University in Sweden (if needed, I can provide evidence of having this degree). This wikipedia article describes the degree in relation to the American system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magister_%28degree%29

 

Since I haven't posted enough on these forums (yet), I provide this link to my scientific publications in respectable astronomy journals (two articles where I am the co-author and one American Astronomical Society meeting presentation where I am the main author). I'm working on writing up my current research into a paper that will be submitted this spring with me as main author. When you're at this stage in your career, any article with your name on it is kind of a big deal Smiling

Definetly on the affiliate badge.

 

FOR EVERYONE

The blogger badge is ONLY for people that don't get credit for being a blogger by another means.

All mods, bronze members, silver members, gold members, (soon vips), ALL have blogs on this site.

The blogger badge is just a means to denote someone that has no other visible status.  It's very limited, only a few people have it.  It's the special exemption people.  And if someone gets a new role that covers the blogger role, we'll remove the blogger badge.

THIS WILL PUT IT INTO PERSPECTIVE: KELLY DOESN'T HAVE A BLOGGER BADGE!

          I hope

          I hope this isn't completely inappropriate, but I would like a superfan badge. I am big fan of what you all do here. I would also like to think that I try my part to contribute to some of the goals of the RRS. I know that I've appreciated the opportunities that have been given to be here to broaden my understanding and clear away my ignorance. Thanks. And no hard feelings if you don't want to give me the badge because I am a theist.

Badges

I'd be honored to be the recipient of a scientist's badge.

My field is forensic science--specifically firearm and toolmark identification (also sometimes called forensic ballistics). I worked in a metro crime lab for 17 years and testified as an expert witness in both district and federal courts over a hundred times.  I was also qualified as a latent fingerprint examiner and was certified as a crime scene investigation instructor.

 

My cv can be found online through my "homepage" at:

http://hometown.aol.com/rockyabq/RSS-FC.html

 

I appreciate your consideration.

Since the volume of the entire earth is 2.5988 x 10^11 cubic miles and the volume of the universe is 4.20 x 10^69 cubic miles, then in a universe "designed" and "fine-tuned" for humans we are able to occupy only about one 16,161,305,217,792,800,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000th of it.

Thanks for your consideration!

Scientist Badge

Hey guys. I haven't posted anything sciencey yet, but i would love a scientist badge. I have a BSc in Biotechnology and have been working as a Medical Scientist for about 11 years in Pathology. Of course a superfan badge would be cool if I don't warrent a scientist badge, but I probably don't post enough for that.

Whatever your decision, I am still a loyal fan.

I would buy a membership but being that I am in High School right now I am really focusing on my academics instead of a job to pay for a membership. I will get one summer time though, Thanks.

HEY! Where is my science badge?

 

Brian, are these badges awarded for people who have a real B.S. degree (or higher) in a science? I know it looks like a dumb question, but I have my reasons...

I'd love an uberfan badge, as well, please!

While some will have degrees in the field of science many others may just be people who are slightly more well versed in science.

 

 

As for the extra badge requests, sorry, but for now we're sticking with these.  We may add more later and revisit this thread for ideas.

In that case, do I qualify for one? (A+ student and Biological Anthropology Major, planning to start on a PhD track in 2010 or 2011).

I think I'm eligible for the Superfan badge, because I know Mike Ditka would win against a hurricane.

(But if the hurricane is Hurricane Ditka? In that case I don't know.... )

Good night, funny man, and thanks for the laughter.

Thanks so much Sapient, but

Thanks so much Sapient, but can I eventually get a "GOD" badge in caps; afterall, not many understand me ?!!!

Or a "Womanizer" badge. I could have fun living up to that one, .... Nah, never mind, that's too much work....

Ahhh forget all this. I'll just have whatever "heike6" (and all you RRS girls) are having ! Yeh, superfan is cool, but then again, being god, ya know, really deservers a "GOD" badge. Damn shame god gets so little respect. But no worrys, I do understand, after all, "I am god as YOU" .... as all is ONE !

((( geezz I can't help it, my Atheist mom told me back in my 20's, that I should be a preacher, and I'm beginning to realize what she really meant .... "crazy world of sick religious loons" she would yell ! .... and so I've tried ....

Thanks to all of you that make RRS what it is. Teaching and destroying superstition is the of work the "blessed". Keep "saving" and "loving" and "laughing" and "yelling" at them Christians. RRS has strengthened so many of us.

Give Kelley a hug for me (or whatever I can away with! ) .... and all my apologies for just being god ! (and a happy drunk)
