I'm just curious, because I've been on websites that run on a subscription basis; ie, you can have the avatar for a year-long subscription, but once the subscription runs out bye-bye avatar.

So, how long do ya'll get to keep your microbadges and avatars?

Well, technically, as long as there is a BGG.

Or until thermonuclear warfare fries all the servers.

Or until the sun goes supernova.

Ok Wendell if we're going to get all technical, our sun won't supernova but microbadges will stop existing once our sun becomes a red giant

Wouldn't there, you know, not be a BGG if the second and third things happened?

By that time I would expect that BGG would exist on the Interstellar Mind Net and be distributed across the brains of beings all across this sector of the galaxy. sauron

Rotate your microbadges like you rotate your tires!!!

(Can't say "...like your women..." - cause, well I been married for 30 years and truth to tell - the idea of rotating mates should not be mentioned to my wife.... she looks a LOT better than I do....)

Will we be reading it on our nice friendly, non-panic inducing, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy?

Also you could lose a microbadge if the creator asks that it be pulled from the site, but you will be reimbursed if this happens.

Technically I believe you can delete one of your own microbadges, although I have never done it, I just prefer to rotate them.

It works, and quite well; I've deleted all of my contest microbadges, most special microbadges, and a couple of game microbadges.

Okay, that's easy enough to handle.

Though I panicked a little when I had to log out to get the 10-year one.

In which case, the microbadges wouldn't be deleted.

You can change which ones you display, choosing from amongst the ones you own.
