Microsoft Dynamics Community – How close are you to your next badge?

My obsession with Dynamic Community badges will relax to normal levels as I have finally acquired my problem solver 5 badge, which you get for having 75 verified answers to forum questions.  I have to say this is a lot harder than it sounds because you only get a verified answer when the user clicks you have answered the question and the person who asked the question doesn’t always marked it as answered even if the question has been answered.

It isn’t all about badges because these forums are very useful for finding answers to problems in the long term because I have searched for answers to problems and have often found the answer on a forum question posted a long time ago.

I am one of 23 people to have been awarded this badge in the dynamics community.   One of the reasons the numbers seems relatively low is because before badges they had a different point system, which I think is still going on.   There are other CRM forums which you get points for answering questions

I am pretty much badged up now with the other badges being very difficult to acquire, a couple of main ones I would like to collect is the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Community Contributor, which I am on course for if I keep answering as many CRM forum questions at my current pace
