Congratulations Marcella!

Just to let you know that from now on we will be asking players to re-post their challenge rather than just telling us they are finished. It makes it easier on us Mods to check and award Hall of Fame badges. It's fine this time though as we've only just started asking you to do it :)

Congratulations Lauren!

We have made some changes to the badge reward scheme and are now asking members who would like to continue collecting badges to create their own badge threads. Even if you already have a thread created by me, please create a new one in the linked folder - Hall of Fame.

If you would prefer not to collect badges, that's fine too just let me know and I'll make sure not to keep reminding you about creating a thread :)
