Users can be labeled with badges. These are images with a short text, expressing a user's activity level, importance or role in the context of the website. They are displayed in forum posts, on user public profiles or in your own custom controls.
There are two types of badges:
|•||Automatic badges - these are assigned to users based on the number of gained activity points|
|•||Non-automatic badges - these are assigned to users manually by site administrators and are assigned permanently, regardless of the number of gained activity points|
In the screenshot below, you can see one of the pre-defined badges in a forum post.
