Introduction to BADGES on SteemPeak.com
WHAT IS A BADGE?
Visual representation of a connection to a group/theme.
A public decentralized list with actual graphical badges on SteemPeak.com
We've started a new feature set that we think will
- Help connect people
- Help users find content that is interesting to them
- Badges will show up on your profile page
- Which badges show up on your profile will eventually be customizable
- They may even extend to allowing you to share a badge on posts and comments
- You can mute the badge account to be removed from the badge
- They are built on top of a Decentralized Public List that any interface can use
see them live on https://beta.steempeak.com/badges
BADGES HAVE UTILITY
They have extra utility because clicking on them takes you to other people who post about similar things... thus it's a great tool to help users find content that relates to them.
- Feed of users who have that badge
- List of users who have that badge
- Graphical connection on their profile (then later other places)
COMMUNITY VS BADGES
Communities on Steem are WHERE you post content related to specific topics... badges help identify and maybe help UNITE even users from varied but similar communities.

DECENTRALIZED PUBLIC LISTS
We do not presently have an easy badge creation system for badges.
However it's pretty easy to make one because we use a pretty common and decentralized system for the Public Lists. We are simply using the following list from designated accounts.
For our badge system we will use the following list from accounts
"badge-" then 6 numbers. (Find one that is available)
HOW TO PREPARE TO TURN A PUBLIC LIST INTO A BADGE
- Create an account
- Follow all the users you want to give the badge to
- Edit name of the account and the description
- Badges will display as square... so please upload a SQUARE image for the profile image of the account.
HOW TO GET AN ACTUAL STEEMPEAK BADGE
You can create a public list with or without us.
A badge from SteemPeak does much more than give a list of users.
SteemPeak reviews badges and will add them on our end
Presently as we are developing this feature we are willing to do some badges at no cost.
