A lot of the time when I go to answer some of your questions in the Forums, or on a class page, I have to look up your record in my customer database so I know what level to answer your question at. If you're just a Beginner user, then I know I have to answer your question a certain way. If you're a Developer user, you might get a different answer. I've also noticed a lot of you helping each other in the Forums, which is fantastic. So this will help you also know what kind of a user you're having a conversation with, and where they're from. Plus, it's fun!

These are the people who approve your posts and help to answer your questions. Be nice to them. Richard and Alex.
More people who approve your posts and help to answer your questions. Be nice to them, too. Adam, Kevin, and Scott.

You'll get a badge once you've been a student of mine after 1, 5, 10, and 15 years. Your anniversary date is based on the day you enrolled (purchased) your first class. I created in 2002, so in 2022 we'll add a 20-year badge for a few of you. If you think your date is wrong, let me know.

Five Years
Ten Years

The list of Badges is getting long, so I shortened it a touch. You will now only see the highest level you've achieved in a course. Access is the only one so far, so if you've completed Beginner and Expert and are into the Developer classes, you'll no longer see the B and X badges.

Not sure how this date is computed but, although I can't remember the exact date I bought my first classes from you, it was around the 2012 or 2013 era...I know this does not make a huge difference but just wanted it to be accurate.. Thanks and I continue to look forward to more lessons as you make them.

Yes, it's based on the date your record was created in my customer database, which is generally the date of your first purchase. For you, that would be November 5th, 2010. So you just passed your 10th anniversary! Congrats. That's going to be a badge too. 1 year, 5 year, 10 year. The most right now would be 16 years since I started this in 2004. The field doesn't exist in my web site database, though, so I have some work to do to get that info up to the web. It's not just as simple as adding a field to SQL Server. :)

As I was typing in "November 5th," the nerd in me just wanted to continue with "1955." If you're a nerd like me, you'll get it.
