Strange attribution of "read guidelines badge" and "certified" badge


(Julien Tane) #1

This is not to complain or anything… I am a new user to discourse

But I wanted to share the “feeling” I got when I received the “read guidelines badge”. Edit. as well as below added info on “certified” badge

It felt as if I had written something which required of to be reminded to be polite.

I believe the badge is given automatically to push people to read the guidelines.
But this felt strange.

I am not saying something should be done about this. But formulation matters.
Maybe a reformulation of the badge text would be appropriate.

Of course this is just my experience as a new discourse user.

About the certified badge:
Maybe the certificate description could set a link to the tutorial, for those who haven’t done it already. And would like to.
