Badges are earned by participating in the community and performing specific activities. Users earn Mints (community activities) and Points (groups and forum activities). There are four levels each with a specific theme. So for example, Level I (basic theme) you earn 5 mints for watching a video you will earn the LV I video badge. If you earn up to 10 mints for watching videos your badge will be upgraded to a LV II badge. The more mints and points you earn your badge will display your highest level.
We have three themes for the year 2020.
LV I: Basic Badge
LV 2: 80s Theme
LV 3: Hippie Theme
LV 4: Pirate Theme
The goal is to try and earn all four level badges. Note: Only one badge per theme is displayed. The highest level for that badge will be displayed. If you see a Hippie Theme badge for an activity, it means you are an LV 3 for that badge.
Badge Assignment and Annual Reset
Most badges are automatically assigned based on mint points and activities. Some badges are automatically assigned based on the user’s placement (1st-3rd place). Badges display the highest level per category. You can find your badges under your profile.
Logs for mint points and badges are reset yearly to decrease accumulated clutter on the server. We want newer members to have the opportunity to win some of the cool badges every year. Some badges and awards will remain, others will be reset annually.

Please note that there are limitations to some of the activities (max per day) to prevent overuse and flooding the activity log.

Monthly, Seasonal, and Yearly Winning Badges
Badges based on the month, year, and season display the latest winning and replaced with the next winning badge. So for example, if you got overall winning of the year that badge will remain until the next year. If you got 1st place winning in January, then 2nd in February the last winning badge will be displayed. In some cases, if the badge is automatically assigned the highest earned badge remains until you exceed to the next level. Assigned winning badges display the current winning.

These badges are given based on the overall number of points earned throughout the year and rank level combined. So if you placed 1st but your rank was Charismatic – your badge will be 1st Place Charismatic.
About the Top Leadership
The top leadership is based on user points which are earned by participating in any of the groups in Chaos. The more you post and reply your points are earned and your rank goes up. Points are refreshed monthly and start over right before the first of each month. The badges will display your highest rank earned. You can track your rank numbers by joining groups and checking the Top Member Leadership tab.
Awards will be added as they are created along with the badges or signature tags. Some events award signature tags and others are badges. Personalized awards will always be offered as signature tags. Check the winning pages for the signature tag links.
