New feature: Achievements

August 7, 2010

There is a pretty new feature on Wikia that’s a lot of fun: Achievements. I’m going to turn them on now since I keep seeing them on the test wikis and being jealous that I can’t play too ;).

Basically, if you do certain things you get badges – edit a certain number of times, upload images, there is even a track of Achievements for how many days in a row you edit. Achievements show up on your user-page and there’s a Leaderboard to see what other cool badges other LyricWikians are earning. It’s fun! 🙂 However, if for some reason you don’t like them, you can go to your Preferences page (‘Misc’ tab) and turn them off for yourself.

Achievements have the ability to have the icons and names customized per-wiki, so we’ll probably get on that pretty soon to make them more LyricWiki-ish.

Hope you enjoy the Achievements!
