Ever new user on instructables gets a welcome patch? and for lets say 10/25/50/100/150/200+ instructables you get a Dedicated member patches?

Contest finalists get finalist patches?

If more than lets say 200 comments on your instructables give them a popular patch?

Got more than 3 or 4 featured instructables give them a feature population patch?

If an instructable gets featured on the front page you give them a 3 month membership why not give them a patch with it!

The names are just random guesses you can make way better names than that but it would be really awesome if we got patches for the above!

Finalist patch. I think the finalist tag on the main pic of Instructables are removed now. A patch for that will give recognition that you ALMOST won (hey, better than nothing).

  • 10/25/50/100/150/200 intructables, that would also be a good one.
  • Also the featured instructables patch could be made to show how many featured instructables you have
  • Have a T-shirt patch

take out the 200 part, as the guy with the most ibles needs more than 30 to get to 200...

Actually it would go past 200 at increments of 100 until it reaches 1000 when it would go by increments of 500, but obviously those badges would not be used muchif at all.
