(Fark)   Can any of you very talented Farkers make thread badges like we used to have years ago? The youngins in the DNC thread in the Poltab liked my old ones, but I don't have the ability to make new ones. Please help revive a Fark tradition   (fark.com) divider line

Looks like this has only part of the original code/backend/whatever it's called. It's not what I'd call operational in my browser.

Someone maybe attempting to bring the old site back?

Archives of the original site...Has the graphics at least.

Sadly as it's a static archive, the customization functions are lost.

Oh holy cats if you got that site to work properly, please let me know how, and what browser & version you were using.

I want so much to go play with the badges again the way I used to.

I think some of my blocking addons might have been interfering, or else I was not using the right browser.

Oh darn it.

It's late and my brain is a marshmallow. That's an old badge.

Can any Farker make a badge? Do farkers just post it in the thread or do they wait until the thread is closed? Pls advise, willing to photoshop for lulz.
 
2020-08-21 9:23:35 PM  
Hi Neo...Go ahead and post whatever you want.  You can Google up whatever you need to make a badge.  It will appear when the thread goes live in a couple of days.

Sorry, I may have hijacked the thread to find out the parameters for creating Fark badges. Thought there was some kind of Fark Badge Review Commitee or something...

We were just trying to get a badge for the DNC threads and for some mysterious reason this was greened as a contest. I have no clue as to how this is supposed to work as a contest now, but viva le fark.

This is where the shrinking population of an aging, irrelevant news aggregator that is now about 50% sockpuppet troll accounts tries to recapture the nostalgia of days when interesting things occasionally happened and people would make funny, original comments about them, by displaying meaningless in-group status symbols.

SO EPIC

Excuse my ignorance but what exactly are these badges for and how does one acquire one? I have been here for over a decade and was always puzzled by them...

I've been here a dozen years (Maybe longer) and I never knew how people got the badges.

My guess has always been that it's for posterity. Badges are like participation trophies, stating something like "I survived FARK thread # XXXXX."

Some users have them in their profiles, with links to those threads.

Somebody makes a badge and posts it.  Sometimes they use "badge generator" web sites; sometimes they do the image mangling more directly with paint/shop/ink type programs.  Sometimes they "give" badges to people... I guess by posting the image of a badge and saying something like "you win this!"

In the end it's just a graphical image... colored and/or shade dots on a screen.

It's simple
Posting in the thread gives you the right to download and do whatever with the badge

Its honor system so we automatically presume you participated in the thread

Pretty much, yes. If you check the profiles of a lot of old time Farkers, you will sometimes see that they have linked the image into their profile of one of those badges.   The badge basically just indicates that they participated in a supposedly epic thread.

Unfortunately I just don't think Fark has the draw it used to have, and most of these epic threads contained hundreds if not thousands of comments.

Nah, it works.  For those who received badges, they're their participation trophies.  Actually it's a sentence fragment that the *real* waxbeans would have finished with some emoticons to say "Wait so their participation trophies [explode] [with teary face] [poop]."

Yeah, I can't get this site to work at all. That's the style of badges I used to make, and the site I used to use, IIRC. My profile has several, many of which I made. But that site hasn't worked for years. At least the link opens to something, which it didn't before, but the site itself won't work in either Firefox, Google Chrome, or Edge.

You select a badge type and you get a line of copy saying "Welcome to the Official Badge Generator. Enter some text, choose a an emblem, pick your colors, and click the 'Go' button. A Badge will be generated for you. Collect 'em, trade 'em, put 'em on your website, or e-mail 'em to your friends". Beneath that you get six small icons of the different badge types followed by a completely blank page beneath that.

That blank page used to have a menu for the different fields to enter your type, select the font size, change the colors. Now it has nothing, so I don't see how you can make a badge with this when you can't input or select anything. Telepathy?
