Do only recent ideas count?

I was just looking at these new badges, and I noticed that I haven't got a badge for having an idea implemented, even though I've had them implemented.

Does this mean that it isn't counted because it was too long ago, or is this just a glitch? If the former, then how long ago is too long?

 

 

 I could have sworn there was at least one other as well but I can't find it, but I did find this one in the old ideas board archives (not easy to find mind you) if proof were needed.

OK it isn't the most earth shattering idea in the world ever, but it was an idea for an improvement that did get implemented.

Good news! The folks have found the issue here - there are a handful Ideas that didn't migrate correctly when Labs first launched, and this is one of them. They're going to dig them out and get them moved over properly, which should be before the end of January. They'll keep their status, so any of them that are marked as Implemented will automatically assign the sticker to the member who posted them within a day or so of the migration.

@tradertall - Labs Payback queries are best directed to @prescilla_g, but from what I remember, Payback on Ideas isn't based solely on interactions - it depends on the idea's progress, so isn't necessarily tied to the date the idea was posted or the vote was made. One constant is that we'll never retroactively add Payback to a period that's passed, though - it'll always be folded into the current month's Payback even if it's activity that took place on something that was posted months before.

They're probably only counting ideas implemented since Labs was launched. Seems a likely cut-off date if there is one.

It can't be age related as my implemented idea is older than the one you linked to. I can only assume the test is taking it's feed from ideas in Labs  and that maybe your idea wasn't carried over from the old ideas board into Labs.

 

Either way, an implemented idea is an implemented idea and you should have the sticker. Maybe @t_will could shed some light on this issue.

@revjonty

 

I woulf have thought it should  ount from either. BAs count etc so it would make sense for ideas would too. Maybe its something as simple as a tick box at giffgaffs end so its recognised as an implemented idea.

 

Im sure it will be put right Smiley Happy

 

What i cant work out at the minute is that you can have 3 badges showing. When the badges were set up by giffgaff it automatically set me with the 2 showing. If i tey and add my implemented idea badge as the 3rd it doesnt show after youve ticked it. When you go back its unticked..... there isnt a save button i can see anywhere either.... 

 

I dare say theres a quick fix

Looks like this popped up while I was away, I've only just seen it - sorry if you were waiting on a response.

This sticker is applied to everyone who has an idea in Labs in their name that has the 'Implemented' status. I'm not sure whether you not having this means that that idea didn't import into Labs, or that it hasn't been marked as implemented, or if it maybe got merged into an older idea that asked for the same thing - but I'll find out and seer what we can do.

I have one for an idea over 7 yearsold so  that suggests all implementd ones should get the sticker no matter how old.

@t_will

Here is the thread, as requested in your pm.

For clarity, it is marked as implemented, & it hasn't been merged.

Aha, yes, now I remember, thank you.

I'll bring this up with our devs on Thursday. We'll need to track where this idea ended up in the Labs migration in 2013, but I believe I mentioned it in November so they may already have the answer.

I also wonder how payback works for the Ideas Lab.
If an old idea gets a vote, do I get payback for it at the time of the vote ?
