I know i came across this a little late, but I wanted to follow up on this post anyway to let you know that our company now offers Bragger Badges. This add-on now allows you to create badges based on all sorts of complex or simple community metrics. In addition to badges, it provides a Leaderboard, profile widgets, it ranks users on most badges earned, most points earned, and overall achievement. We have FREE Trials for all of our community add-ons. We also provide screenshots of the badges application so you can get an idea on how it works and what it looks like in the default figi theme. All of our add-on can be themed exactly the same way you theme Telligent Community.
If you have any questions or would like to see a live demo, please let us know.
