I just renewed my BGG support for 2014 and noticed it was for the 10th year and I realised that I have a lot to be thankful for this community during those 10 years.

Let me start by saying that this community is so special that every time when people talk about online community and the problems they encounter with them, I bring up BGG as an example how things should be:
People helping people, giving information, trying to answer question with the best info they know, always trying to be as helpful as possible. I must admit, there were some cases of people not acting so, but during my 10 years I can count them with my two hands, and if you think about the amount of posts I read and encountered during that time, that is minor.

People always tried to answer my questions.
People gave me feedback on my designs which helped me a lot.
People published new graphics for my games that helped me get published (and I'll always be grateful for them and for this platform that enabled this)

In my 30 years online (yes from the time it was only bitnet) I never encountered such a positive community.

So that you BGG community!

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

Huh... I wonder why the five-year badge is awarded automatically but you have to pay for the 10 year one?

Anyone can make a badge for sale.
Getting one approved to be system administered however is a more arduous process.
