Sharing Badges – You Asked, We Delivered

Sharing badges is fun. But let’s face it, sometimes the choices of people to share them with are not the choices you might make yourself.

So Tim ventured into the TimTech Department of Badge Sharing and Assorted Badge-Related Matters office a few hours ago.

He asked really, really nicely if they could do anything to make sharing badges even better.

Tim said: “Well we would love it if when people share a badge on CTP it will first:

1) check teamates who dont have it
2) check friends who don’t have it

and select friends from those lists.”

Some buttons were pressed, a couple of levers were pulled and one of those really big wheels that it takes two hands to turn, was turned…several times.

So now when it comes to sharing badges then either your CTP team teammates or your CTP friends who don’t have the badge will be shown.

Note that the new system won’t mix the two so if only one person on your team does not have the badge then you will get to see just that one person.

Cool or what?

  1. Yay, how wonderful, I have more choices to share what wonderful news. Thank you very much!

  2. YES!

    Love that this is finally happening! Too many times to count I would get 9 friends up on the page but end up not giving the badge because all of them already have it!

    Whoot!Whoot! 🙂 🙂

    Now that’s what I’m talking about! That is just terrific news! I had to share the poor Janelle badge with a shadow this morning. So sad….

    Thanks Tim and TimTech!

    You gave away the big “wheel that takes 2 hands to turn” secret of programming! I think there’s some card that should be taken away for that, no?

    • Patrick Griffin says:

      well i didn’t really give it all away. I didn’t say which direction it was turned in and I may have got the number of turns slightly wrong.


  12. Lynn M says:

    This is a really really awesome addition & what many of us who are active on the teams have been hoping for! Way to gooooooo!

  13. I did used to have that problem myself when sharing badges now im happy the problem is solved.

  14. Mr.Jerky says:

    How about a badge that takes away a few points? Like a Points Bomb Badge! Those could be shared with the rival team members. 😛

    • Patrick Griffin says:

      Funnily enough, this idea has been mentioned by more than one person. I like the idea in theory but in practice it could be open to abuse and may lead to a lot of unhappy people.

  15. Maya says:

    This was a big wish of mine to let no badge go to waste.
    great that it has been changed now. Tnx guys!

  16. Ken Hulit says:

    great concept

  17. Ken Wolff says:

    Yes!!!I have often wondered if there was a purpose in getting 9 people to share with and when clicked any one of them you got that feeling it was such a waste when you saw their calendar was totally red! Looking forward to sharing badges with active team members and friends.

    Hola! After having a day or so’s experience with this, I think there’s one thing that needs to be modified/fixed. It seems that most of the badge sharing is working this way (teammates first, active friends next) except for the one group of badges that is probably the most important teams-wise…. the Team XP (the star XP) badges. They are definitely not giving you the option to share with teammates first. Perhaps this can be fixed?
