They're digital badges of appreciation. You can send them wherever in the real world you would send a card or buy a drink for somebody.

There is a collection of site-patches or you can design your own.

Pretty much, but if you get lots, later ones can push earlier ones to another page.

I just got my first one today, and in the message that I got in my inbox, it said it wears away/off in a month. Was that just a joke, or is it really only going to last for 30 days? Just wondering.

Are you serious? I've received my first patches but I have nobody to share with.

Drop an email to service@instructables.com, and they'll be able to replace any missing patches.

I find that it's a nice way to Thank someone for something they did.
