birdyboff But what has happened to the ranking system and therefore achievements thread? Do we still receive ranks
Along with signatures we are awaiting developments to reintroduce the ranking system. I believe they need to get the platform extracting data properly for payback generation first, before designing a new algorithm to generate the ranks again on the new platform.
Adding too too many features too quickly to a Beta platform could destabilise it (apparently), and I understand from a post by @t_will earlier last month that things like stickers and ranks will be discussed in the Community at some point again when they can be implemented.
They needed to hide the permissions icons which were cluttering up our profile icons (like so much lettuce on top) so that only admin and educators can still see them! Permanent achievements, like VIG, founders, and giff-staffer/educator icons still appear, which help identify roles held.
