What are patches? Answered

What the topic says. I know that it may seem silly to some people but really though, I don't know what they do. It would be cool for someone to give me one, but it would just be fine for someone to tell me what they do. Maybe also about how to make one too.

Patches are a way to give an online/virtual/pretend "award" to someone else for something you like about them. You could just send them a message, but I guess among the Facebook afficionados patches are deemed more "tangible."

The site also awards patches to members for winning contests or being featured in the monthly newsletter.

Paid members can upload images and use them to create and send out their own patches to other members.
