What benefits come with achieving medals? Answered

I have just received a medal after having my post featured on the homepage, awesome!

As I'm new to this I was wondering whether there are and additional benefits to achieving medals other than kudos? Do they unlock any features as you progress?

Many thanks

Nope, just something shiny for your profile, at least for the moment.

Thanks for the feedback gang!

Yeah, I think I received a years free pro membership.
I'm really pleased with that. It was completely unexpected.

It's certainly a good system. I'm already thinking of my next instructable.

Cheers

You should receive either a year or 3 month subscription code every time you have a guide featured. It is a good system because despite having over a decade worth of codes waiting to be used I still love seeing that email come in.

Didn't you get 3 months pro membership with the featured medal?

Supposed to. Well, actually for every one featured you get the 3 months, but the medal shows at least one was featured. Get 3 more and you get a whole year and I think that's worth about $50.00. It's been so long I don't remember the price. Still have more than 15 years worth saved up.

I haven't bothered to count mine but I should have about the same.
