What are patches?

On people's profile pages there is a space for 'patches' an I was just wondering what they are and what they are used for.

Patches are a symbolic representation given by a pro member to anyone the pro member believes deserves recognition for whatever the pro member deems worthy. Usually, its a small graphic with a written explanation of why the patch was given.

They're graphically-enhanced message-thingys that you can throw at people and they stick. The site awards some for various reasons (Burf), but people who pay (Pro) can give a limited number for their own reasons.
