What do the various symbols mean that show up after someone's username within their posts? I'm talking about the circles with things like chess pieces, footprints, a white checkmark inside a circle, and I think I've seen a couple others, too.....

I've tried to figure this out for a while, but to no avail.

:shy: Thanks.

Hello Duranie,

If you are on desk/laptop just hover the cursor (mouse) over the badges ... a popup will give you some information about each one.

Examples:

In my name when you hover over the chess piece, it will reveal: Staff Badge

The typewriter is an allnurses Writer.

The checks reveal levels of posting history.

Hovering over the check in your name reveals, Starter Level Badge: 21 posts.

And, so on.

Unfortunately, I use a tablet, not a computer... so I can't mouse-over anything. I tried tapping on the circles, but nothing happened.

Thanks for explaining the typewriter and the check mark on the rectangle.

What about the white check in the blue circle, like shows up next to your name?

Or if you look at a post by Nurse Beth, there's a orange circle with what looks like a ball of yarn....

I think I figured out the different chess pieces are Admin (like yours) or guides (just a rook).

Thanks again.

All checks in circles reveal levels of posting history.

On Nurse Beth that particular icon is an Innovator Badge.

Thanks!

There was one last one that I've been trying to figure out: it looks like footprints.

It is a first step level badge.

Thanks! I suppose I'm just the curious sort.... and I tried to figure out what they meant, and even looked for somewhere on the site where they were listed. I did think it was a little odd that there was no explanation anywhere, but I guess it makes more sense now after you explained that mousing-over them brings up a descriptive tag.

Anyway, I truly appreciate your time to indulge my curiosity. :yeah:
