Featured Member: Is Elina The Most Dedicated Badge Collector Ever?

Elina Balashova CTP Profile

Lucky13 team member Elina Balashova takes her CTP badge collecting very seriously indeed.

She is in the Top Ten CTP members for having most badges claimed but that is not why she came to my attention.

What really, really stands out about Elina is how proud she is of her CTP badge collection.

On Lucky13 she is known as the team’s Surf Queen…and with good reason. She has a sKore of 76, has 59,472 badges to her name, 12 kingships and 53 trophies and is on Level 123 at CTP with a personal XP tally of 28.1 million.

On Saturday she was in first place in her team having completed 79 promos and adding 67.8 million points to her team total – very impressive indeed.

However this post is all about her badge collecting or, more specifically, the way she has listed, on her Sunshine Clickers website, every single CTP badge she has ever claimed.

Here is an example from just one of her pages…

There are four pages of CTP badges so do take some time to check them all out. Elina even lists those badges she has not yet collected but there are not very many of those.

Whenever there is a badge hunt contest then Elina all over it and determined to win…I think I counted another three pages of special badge collection/badge hunt pages on her blog too.

Here is a screenshot from just one of them…

I even noticed that Elina has collected some of my badges too…

That is an absolutely awesome collection of badges but do check out Elina’s blog to see the complete collection.

  1. Elina is a very dedicated badge collector indeed. When you release a new badge you can be sure that she will be one of the first to claim them. She also did an amazing job with the badge hunts (didn’t she win the last time?)

    Totally agree here Elina is the Queen of the badge collecting.
    Glad you got to her site and had a peruse Patrick after a few subtle hints last week.
    Ever since Elina started her sunshine clickers site I have been impressed with the dedication to placing all the badges earned on her pages a very good guide for anyone seeking those obscure badges and who has what.

    Wow, I had never seen a few of these badges, very nice indeed. Kudos to you Elina for not only collecting them, but taking the time to arrange them in such a great fashion.

    That’s our girl! She is just a bulldog in the surf, but so much more!

    For those that don’t subscribe to our team blog (why not? Fresh content every day!) Elina takes her turn and is a very talented writer.

    I got to know Elina some during the badge hunts. And why not? She has won every one!

    Thanks, Patrick, for a tribute to a great team mate and badge collector!

    We call her our Surf Queen and a surf monster! Elina is such a gem, and so bright and so talented… when she sets out to do something, it gets done, just like her badge hunting! I had gotten fairly well acquainted with her over the past year, especially due to the badge hunts, but I am so very thankful that she landed on the Lucky 13 team as my teammate and I have gotten to know her and Pat so much better and call them friends. She is truly one of the sweetest, kindest, most thoughtful and caring people I have ever known and we are certainly so proud to have her and her super skills at badges and surfing on Lucky 13!!!

    Everybody needs a hobby–better to collect electronic badges than physical ones that take up lots of space and collect dust!
