Medal/Badge On Page, What does it mean? Answered

Picture of

Hey guys, this may seem like a simple question but I wasn't sure what it means and after looking through the forums I couldn't find any answers.

At the top of my Instructable there is a medal/badge looking icon, what does this indicate?

It means that one of the HQ staff or Community Team thought your project was worthy of extra publicity.

You should have had, or will get very soon, a message telling you that you have been awarded a free three-month pro membership as a thank you.

As well as the medal, your project gets a small star added to its thumbnail image the main listings, and is added to the Instructables twitter feed and FaceBook page. You may also be lucky enough that one of the editors moves your project up to the front page, at which point you will earn the further reward of a full year's pro membership.
