It’s Not Fair – SurfAholics Alpha Have Five Team Badges

Life really is not fair you know. It is bad enough that the SurfAholics have an Alpha and a Bravo Team but now they have FIVE team badges as well.

These badges were first shown off at last week’s Sweeva Surf Party and are designed to reward members of the SurfAholics Alpha team for outstanding performance. Now the team members who win the monthly team performance awards will also get a cool badge to collect.

This is a great idea. It is taking some of the existing game elements which are within CTP and personalizing them for an individual team.

There are four monthly awards within the team for the following categories:

  1. Earning the highest Daily Challenge percentage in a given month
  2. Earning the most team points
  3. Completing the most number of promos
  4. Peer Choice Award – a member selected by their team mates each month.

Not only are there badges to collect for each category but SSA also recognize the contribution made by the winners in public…there is no point in making an award and then keeping it secret.

So the winners are featured on the team blog and at the Sweeva Surf Party we saw splash pages which had been specially designed to showcase the winners.

SAA performance Awards splash page 1 SAA performance Awards splash page 2 SAA performance Awards splash page 3 SAA performance Awards splash page 4

These are the first four pages which all feature the new badges:

I did say there were five team badges but I have only shown you four of them. Well that is because the fifth badge is not really a team badge at all, it is a badge for general collection.

The fifth badge is officially known as the “SAA is #1 –Β  it’s so unfair Badge” and if you want to claim that then you will have to get it from Matt. I have seen him give it out randomly but I don’t know what the requirements are to get it. He hasn’t told me. I wish he would. It is soooooo unfair.

SurfAholics Alpha It Is So Unfair Badge

This is what the badge looks like. Sadly it is not a clickable link to allow you to claim it. I know, I know. It is so unfair.

So very well done to team leader Matt Badura and to all the team members for this really creative use of CTP Badges.

    Great Idea I’m upset that I didn’t think of it first, but hey I can still be 2nd if I scramble.

    Good heads there my friends!

  5. Elina Balashova says:

    Great badges πŸ™‚ Too bad I can not get them for my collection LOL.
    But to be fair, Alphas are not the 1st team with badges. If I remember well, William Miller made Bonze badges right from the start ;).

  6. Tom Wacker says:

    You know, there is a reason why the SAAs are placed where they are *kough* just ahead of the Lucky 13. They are so good, even if it is unfair.

    Now I’ll have to start grinding on Matt to get the ‘It’s so unfair badge’, but I really think Elina needs it first….

    This is Fair season in America. It’s just unfair that my county fair is in April and I can’t go this month….

  7. Patricia Hedge says:

    Rewarding the members for their hard work.
    Congratulations on what is in all likely hood another first!

  11. Kathy Dyer says:

    I got some ideas too…but thats not for public I guess… I am to Small in this world… way to small… Not that I am small, but but… πŸ™‚

  19. What’s not fair?

    Other teams can buy more.

  20. Karen Kuty says:

    Great Idea, Surfaholics! If other teams are jealous (it’s not fair, whine, whine, whine), then they can buy their own badges. It’s still a “free” internet.

  21. Georgia Stewart says:

    Awesome idea, Alphas – really love the team badges!
