Badges? We want our stinkin badge!

It’s been about 1 month since Basecamp. At basecamp, I was assured that we would get a forum badge because we attended.

Where’s the badge?

I want one too :smiley: . So far I’ve found the badges to be a bit silly and sometimes a bit funny and I haven’t really understood what they are for. A Basecamp batch however would be something to be proud of :3 .

Seems Attendance Badges are only for SUBC 2014 :cry:

I don’t have one from 2014 :open_mouth:

A badge? Is that it? Oh! what price popularity?
I got an entire Goodie-Bag in 2005…complete with travel blanket to keep me cosy on the journey home. :grin:

This is the only Basecamp Attendee ‘Badge’ available here at the Forum that I can find. Seems like it’s a little-known badge or '14 was a poorly-attended event since it’s only been awarded to 17 people!?

At 3DBase/Boot camp 2016, I talked to a SketchUp staffer who is one of the forum administrators (but I don’t recall exactly who) who assured me that there will be a badge, although it might be a repurpose of the existing badge by making it for any Basecamp.

I am disappointed that it hasn’t yet happened.

If anybody reading this has a connection to a forum admin, please call their attention to this thread!

Let us not forget what all 3DBC 2016 attendees found in their goodie-bags … a 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator!

The embroidered blanket truly is a nice memento.
Thanks for sharing, @AlanF

Of course, now I have Blanket Envy in addition to Basecamp Badge Malaise. :wink:

But I have a Google SketchUp 8 T-shirt.


I got a SpaceNavigator too, some time back. But I have to confess it spends more time as a paperweight than anything else. (Sorry guys) Try as I might, I just couldn’t beat my dexterity with a scroll mouse.
It’s quite useful, though with a laptop on your knee, in front of the TV.

Hi @jasonwd! I’ve enabled the 2016 3D Basecamp badges, and I’ll add one to your name. It’s a manual process at this point so other users will need to request a badge if they want one :wink:

I’ll try to stay ahead of this for 2018 so we hope to see you there!


Maybe someone at a software company could find a way to automatically hand out badges, just an idea :stuck_out_tongue: .

Anyhow I’m glad I got my badge for last years basecamp :smiley:

I’ll do some digging :slight_smile:

There should be a list of email addresses for each basecamp attendee. That list could be used to find users in the forum who have attended and then grant the badge.

Thaaanks!! Is there one for 2012 :smile:

Here’s me (the bald one) on the SU blog drunkenly trying to win the SketchUp shootout. Who thought it was a good idea to give round winners booze vouchers??!!
