It means you amused or informed one of the pro or staff members enough that they felt like sending you an electronic "attaboy".

(I have two -- one for a creative reply-to-a-reply, which falls in the "amusing" category, and one for having accumulated a lot of Best Answer tags. That and a buck-fifty will buy ya a cup of coffee.)

A patch can get you a discount on coffee?

Sure, it's worth a whole $0.00 off. (Note that I said you still need the buck-fifty.)

Ha Ha! I meant where can you get a cup for a buck-fifty? We must be getting ripped off down here. :D

Donut shops still sell better coffee than Storeboughts, for less money...

A patch is something a pro member gives you.  They can give it to you for any reason they want.  These patches are viewable on your profile.  The most common use of a patch is a prize for a member-run contest.
