Apologies if this is really obvious, but is there a way to search for microbadges? Say I don't know what category the badge is in, is there a way I could type a search query and see all badges that match it? Say search for Nintendo and get back all the badges with Nintendo in the title?

Thanks in advance!

Good question. I know how to do this by designer but not by topic area.

I don't think they ever implemented a search feature though it has been requested many times before. You'll just have to check in the categories that are the most logical. To use your example, You just have to go to the Video Game category and browse. Unfortunately, that one is just one big grouping. Some of the others get a little more detailed and have sub-categories (but that isn't always good as it may be someplace you aren't thinking.)

Another way is to design one and submit it. If someone else made it, you're sure to get a response within seconds! That's usually what happens to me!

I actually added this in one of the quicklinks on the top.

It's a way to search for microbadges, I believe it was Lajos who came up with it.
