Hi,

I was kind of expecting to be awarded with the following microbadge recently:

10 Year Geek Veteran - 10 years membership.

My registration date was 2007-03-15

Would it be possible for someone to look into this for me please?

IIRC you have to request them (I don't have one either and my registration was in 2006)

Rilly? I seem to remember the '5 Year Geek Vet.' badge being awarded automatically.

Any ideas who I sent the request to?

BGG doesn't award a 10 year badge. If you want that mb you just buy it.

I've just checked the 'Awards' microbadge pages and the is no longer there (the 5 Year badge is still present).

The only 10 year I can find is a purchasable badge in the 'BGG Fandom, Membership and Support Longevity' section.

Did I just dream it all? Wasn't there a system-awarded '10 Year Geek Veteran' badge in the 'Awards' section?

Edit: Seems a bit odd the the 5 year is system-awarded only and the 10 year is purchase only.

Ho-hum, 1st world issue I suppose.

No.

Maybe you're remembering seeing this one:
 I was here for BGG's Tenth Anniversary!

I'm pretty sure you did just dream it. If it's driving you crazy, you could always geekmail the guy who created that badge and ask him to confirm it:

It's in the glove-compartment of the free Aldie Audi.

You didn't get one?
