This is not really a bug, more like a request and can be worked on when time permits. There are a bunch of us who have hit 6 years here as members, but no 6 year badges. When you're done chasing actual bugs maybe look into this. I would think it could be done with a simple script.

There are no 6 year badges.
The 5 year badge is the final one.

I think there was an announcement when the five year badge was added.
@Countrypami is there an announcement somewhere on the forum about this?

I know we discussed the 5-year badge being the final one, because Andria noticed months ago that hers hadn't rolled to 6 years. I don't remember seeing an announcement about it, but that doesn't mean there wasn't one.

The conclusion I was left with is that producing a new badge is quite a considerable development effort, and with the upgrade looming at that time, it was decided that the 5-year would be the final one.

Check now. :)

The problem is the five year badge is complete trash.

An admin has to go in and change every badge by hand from 4 years to 5 years.
This is for every member.
All how ever many thousands... well only the ones who mention it but still.
That isn't working smart.

No problem now that I know the effort it would take. This is a would be nice kinda thing, not something that gets my panties in a bunch. :giggle:

Thanks for the info @5150sick

Thanks for the explanation. Changing each members 5th year one by one sounds like a complete pain and a huge undertaking.

I haven't dug around in the guts of forums software in years, but I'd think there would be a section of the SQLdB table that one could do a search on by join date. But mass-matching and filling the appropriate fields could be a PITA for little real gain, unless you could find and/or wwrite a script to do the work?

As I say, I'm quite out of date on the subject though....IPB v1.x was long ago. Not sure if my old fave tool of phpMyAdmin is up to it either.

There is no badge above the five year badge.
I doubt there will ever be anything higher than a 5 year badge.
