If I get another gold and buy a geek badge while I still have a new user badge, what will happen?

Will everyone get mad at me?

Will the "new user" badge disappear?

Will my avatar, et al, get too tall because I also have a supporter badge?

I do still have a couple of games which are not in the database...........

Everyone will, rightfully, be very cross with you until your Newbie sticker goes away. You're going on my list right now. Shame on you.

You contributed to the site? YOU BASTARD! May all your games turn into Monopoly while you sleep...

Seriously, though - just do your best to ignore the static. I used to spend many hours on the weekends gathering new stuff for the site before folks started beating me up for my prolific earning for contributions and equally prolific spending at the auctions.

After sulking for a month, I've managed to get the bad taste out of my mouth and have started queuing up more games and pictures for updates. (The PMs from people telling me that they were on my side and some backing from the admins also really helped me dust myself off.)

Long story short, your GeekGold was earned making this site we all love just that much better. Feel good about that and don't sweat the haters.

Your new user badge and your geek badge will stack like you see the admins badges or the game designers badges. Click on aldie's name next to his posts to see what I mean.

I wouldn't get too used to it though, as I believe the new user badge goes poof after 30 days (that's just a stab in the dark, but I'm sure it's pretty close).

I'm curious as to what will happen year after year, when someone has been a supporter for more than 3 years, as to how the years on the badge below will be situated. Aldie seems to have gotten around that temporarily by removing the BGG off of the supporter badge, leaving just supporter and enough room for 3 years.

I suppose it would be even worse if I had a game designer badge, but the only game design credits I can claim are all for video/computer games.....

The current plan is to replace them with Flash Media that will cause each year that someone has supported the site for to scroll down the screen in shimmering gold numbers while a trumpet fanfare plays whenever you mouseover the Supporter badge.

-MMM

Wait, are you going to also implement a blocking system...

What good is a dead horse if you can't beat it?
