Thanks, Sergei! Have a few dual-boot hosts that I had thought to "revert" from Linux to Windows to crunch for a while on Win only apps, but won't bother with the hassle now. Looking forward to the new app!

Is there a (even very) rough ETA as to when the new app will start?

Although well past all three levels, I think these are a great addition!

Great to see progress on the badge front! A few suggestions however...

If it is not too much trouble, I would suggest using the standard bronze, silver, gold for the first three badges.
Also, I agree with pututu regarding the levels chosen. Not all users have GPUs and can imagine users with a single slower dual or quad core machine even becoming discouraged at the distance to the next badge level. Reasonably obtainable badge levels encourage many users to stick around.

BTW: In my opinion, the badges don't need to be works of art. A simple representation of contribution is fine with me.

The badge a day projects you mention, besides POGs, what other project does that?

IMHO opinion of course :)

Pogs is the one I had in mind; since I don't "do" but 20 or so projects, and I see others that have done many, many more, I assumed there were others. Odd thing about Pogs, (or maybe it's just that I get my sig from Free-DC?) I've got a half-mil or so Pogs credits, but no badges... I don't even see any for me on THEIR site though, at least not at a glance... I've never worried about it, because if I DID have a bunch of those ugly monstrosities, I'd be asking how to get RID of them! I've seen sigs that have dozens of them.

Your sig only shows one - THAT, I could live with. What that one MEANS (yours is "Sc" at the moment, Scandium) I have no clue. Even Statseb doesn't say, and I'm too lazy to hunt it down on Pogs site. But yeah, they have so many, seeing them just says "oh, he/she runs Pogs" but doesn't instantly tell me "how much". That's why I've gone to putting my only 'badge' emphasis on WuProp. I will never have 20 stars (or want them) but I know at a glance just what it takes to get the three I've got, and I know what colors I want those three to be next! I just fought like crazy to get mine green, red, and gold for Christmas. Missed by two months. Sob! (The hard one was the gold! I don't run many projects.)

To at least make a token 'touch' of the topic of the thread, I think Ami is heading the right direction. :-)

The pogs badge you are referring to is a total credit badge. As noted, there are many other "special" badges.
At the statseb sig site you can easily modify your signature to show as many or as few of your accumulated badges as you prefer. Simply log in, click on customize my signature, then the modify tab, then select formatting. There you can select/deselect which badges are shown.

You can see your pogs badges here as well as which galaxies you've helped process etc. The site requires registration but tinfoil hats are easy to make ;)
