Thursday marked my first 10 years on BGG.
I expected no parade (still a bit disappointed, though), but was really looking foward to the 10 year microbadge, it´s something not everybody here has and you know what people value.
So, do I have to apply for the thing or what?

Do you have to have been here for 10 years?

Looking at the listed owners, I see at least a few who haven't been according to their registration date.

For some of the earlier users, the system crashed and all of their join dates were reset.

Yes, but that was a long time before some of these dates.

If you have 8 , you can buy any of the saleable microbadges. Well except for the one that costs 16 .

Registration dates may not be when they started here.

Some of us have lurked here for longer than we've been registered.

I have a registration date in 2010 but had been lurking/reading since 2000.

System awarded and admin awarded microbadges require you meet some qualification to earn them.

Purchasable microbadges require the user spends 8 geekgold to obtain them. No other qualification is required, regardless of what the microbadges title and/or overtext states.
