Greetings to everyone in our most beautiful community.

As everyone has seen there has been an implementation of the Joy of Satan badges system, the badges being a material verification for the service, goodwill and works done by people so that they are publicly recognized for their work. These badges represent a badge of honor, where wearing is a direct recognition for work our own have done to the evolution and prolonging of our community.

Badges carry the gift of recognition and honor, but also simultaneously they serve as verification of one's works - yet also social responsibility for everyone.

The idea here is that immediate recognition must take place, because as the Joy of Satan moves into the future, many works of people have been going unrecognized or not known by new members or even by the community. People deserve the honor of their works and that's why now it will all be evident.

Even ONE of these badges, is indicative of a high value Spiritual Satanist, who has done something very important for this community. This level scales upwards. That proves the realistic contributions of a person in the real world where we live in - banishing any forms of delusional perceptions or misplaced imagination.

If one sees someone with these, they have done REAL and VERIFIABLE work in their area. All those who have these, have done contributions for the existence of the JoS or it's improvement of quality for other Spiritual Satanists - they have served in some area, no different than serving in a military the protects the people and expands their existence.

Having them all would be (likely) impossible. Because each of these areas does represent a crucial area for development for our community. Inspiration is the first and primary purpose here. As one gains these, they come in to verify their efforts in gaining acclaim in both in front of the Community and the Gods.

These badges represent the work given in many important areas where it comes to community development. In another essence, the badges also represent crucial areas of progress that an individual has helped in improving. They are divided in levels, which range from the entry level to the highest level, representing a higher level of service given to the community on a specific area of it's progression. All these areas are extremely important, and everyone should aspire to receive these badges as they are up for the taking.

In a form of a visual representation, these represent material work done for communal advancement. But on a spiritual side of affairs, one should know that wearing these badges comes with a responsibility toward the community and the people in it; the Gods are proud of our work and they are proud also when we behave as good examples for other SS to follow, so the path is in a consistent movement toward evolution and improvement.

The badges are gained for reasons of recognition, public acclaim and honor, and to establish a form of trust where responses are concerned. They are also indicative of a person's office or where they have helped this community in it's growth.

There will be a few more to be streamlined, but these are the badges that are currently in existence for reception.

___

All badges have 3 levels in total: Beginner level, advanced level, and top level. Blue is level one, Green is level two, Gold is level three, the highest level.

Badge 1: Community Badge - This badge is proof that one has for a very good amount of time, provided answers, caretaking and responses to people who were in need in the Joy of Satan forums. This badge has levels, each indicative of engaging in this very exact process. When one sees this badge, they would understand that the person is established in providing help and counsel in the broader community. These people have directly helped the members of the community receive answers to their questions, when they were in need. The number of valuable responses given, is directly related to this badge being granted.

Badge 2: Activism Badge - This badge is a recent addition based on our Outreach Efforts. People who engage in activism and do this for a measurable amount of time, with substantial impact, are given this badge for proof that they engage in outreach and participate in related activism projects. These people have helped the Joy of Satan grow it's sentiment on the external world by participating in socially reaching projects. Volume of activism and quality, bestows and increases the position of this badge.

Badge 3: Moderator Badge - This badge is given to moderators, who according to rank, help the forums exist via the process of moderation and keeping this place in order where moderation is concerned. The levels of badges have to do with the level of influence in these moderation related affairs. Regional, general, or super moderators, are given their badges accordingly.

Badge 4: Translator Badge - A very important badge, where one receives only insofar one has helped considerably in translating materials to foreign languages. It's thanks to these people that the translations of the Truth can reach other people to enlighten them and advance them, as such, they are granted this as part of honorary due process for this very important task. As one translates in higher volume, they scale higher in claiming this badge.

Badge 5: Editor - This badge is for those who engage in the important task of editing content; site content, sermons, library work, or related work that required editorial talents to become perfected. These people have served in JoS related projects that have to do with bringing our content up to a level of readability and perfection. The more helpful assistance in this department, the higher one receives this badge.

Badge 6: Astrologer - This Badge verifies that a said member has participated in Astrology related projects, or that they have a verifiable Astrology skill that can be consulted or used. That badge will be necessary in the future where astrological services will be related. There has to be proven capacity to give astrology reading, predictions, or wisdom related to astrology. The level of the badge shows highest skill where astrology is concerned, verifiably that someone can do Astrology at a good level.

Badge 7: JoS IT Badge- This very important badge is for those who engage in the help, maintenance and strengthening of Joy of Satan infrastructure, or those who create IT and programming related gifts for the community. Important members for the Joy of Satan, they have helped the community grow or remain afloat and grow in these departments. The amount of community service and responsibility, is reflected via this badge.

Badge 8: Project Creator - That particular badge is indicative that the person has created projects of any character that have improved the Joy of Satan. These projects could be of any kind; they could be a website for specific needs of the community, or other large scale projects like the Wiki Project or other projects which are currently in preparation. As one improves or grows their projects, they rise higher in this badge attainment.

Badge 9: Librarian - These brothers or sisters have helped the community organize it's work, writings and or anything related to backing up, archiving or the library. They have assisted in a verifiable manner for the improvement of these topics. When one has a high level of contribution here, the badge scales accordingly.

Badge 10: Community Manager - This badge is indicative of a very high prominence in the peacekeeping, education and general management of community affairs for the Joy of Satan. Community manager badge means that one has very active and important responsibility in maintaining community cohesion and has proven to have served in that task: keeping the peace, functionally protecting and promoting the community.

Badge 11: Donor Badge - This badge has not yet went live, as the Donors will have to be consulted first on that. The badge exists however. It's for those who have been donating to the Joy of Satan, standing behind as pillars of life and sustenance for the community to literally exist. Due to privacy concerns, there is hesitation on if the badge will be rolled out. Here, the amount of financial contribution for the sustaining and promotion of this community, is measured accordingly for the bestowal of this extremely crucial aspect of existence. (Badge not rolled out yet).

Badge 12: Honorary Joy of Satan Badge - That is a very important badge and will never be given lightly. This badge is of a very specific character - it means that one, somehow has played a major and pivotal role at any given point in helping the Joy of Satan, or has somehow displayed an exceptional ethical character in regard to important topics in the Joy of Satan. The reasoning behind giving this will not be disclosed, but it's value should be evident by what I write here.

Outstanding actions of a moral or ethical character, saving others, crucial help that couldn't have arrived from nowhere else, very highly important honorable actions, will be contributing to receiving of this badge.

Badges with Sigils: These are honorary badges for immediate recognition in the case one is serving in a widely known and recognized position by the Joy of Satan. These carry an amount of high responsibility and they represent that one is officially ordained by the Joy of Satan to serve in a specific post. These badges are for Joy of Satan Guardians, Priesthood, or others who have done a very important amount of work for the Joy of Satan.

Thanks HPHC Sir. I’m so glad we have this list now, I’ve been curious about it for a long time. So is there gonna be a thing where those of us on mobile can see what each badge actually looks like instead of just having to use context clues? Lol

I know on desktop just hovering your mouse over it will tell you what it is, but no such feature on mobile yet. Not complaining, just curious.
 
Lord Cobra Thank you for explaining.And sharing this information. 🙏

It's being worked on.
 
Congratulations to every member who has put in the time and effort over the years to have earned a badge. Your help is greatly appreciated by the JoS Community!

These badges are a motivation for all of us to improve ourselves and improve our community! I really hope to add them to my name one day..I will work hard to get them and grow the site. Thank you HPHC Sir..
 
to be honest, badges with sigils are the coolest ones ever 😍
Congratulations to everyone who got a badge
i dont think its possible, but i hope noone changes their behaviours in a bad way after getting badge
 
Thank you HP and to all those who worked on this! :)

One question - Will there be a tarot reader badge for one who gets verified in being a good tarot reader?

Thanks!
 
I think what's most interesting about these badges, is that we learn that bearers of a badge possess particular skills that we might not have known about them before. It's pretty badass when you find out someone you interacted with once or twice, was actually behind a major project or something. Now our unsung heroes shall have their contributions recognized.

Well, it seems I have 2 new shiny goals to work towards. Gladly so!
 
I am sure that this badge system will help to highlight and recognise the efforts of those who have contributed.

However, it is important to remember that the badge is not the point, there is a much deeper and more important purpose to what we do.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to Joy of Satan and may the blessings of the Gods be upon you.

Hail Satan!

After one gets these, one must actually change for the better and become a better SS. Ideally one's contribution should also improve his character, not the other way around. If power or recognition works in reverse, then the process of badges can also backtrack.

So far nobody has abused these types of things; because 98% of SS I have found, as they work, they start understanding how respectful are also other people who work for the community, but also how important new members are. Creating for the Gods is one way to start loving other people who do the same and feel bonded with them.

The idea here is to establish a form of respect going both ways from all members to all members and for people also to understand that past a point as one improves, they are expected to also be a better SS, based on the things they have done.

So don't worry, all will be fine.

Absolutely, it's frequent that members who have done work were not immediately know for this (Although I did my best always to give credits etc). I have found translators were not always seen or known for example. Now it will be out there.

Everyone can do it, it's all up to us. Also, everyone really comes with none, and then one advances and becomes a better SS, so that's going to be a little add-on for this. We all walked in the door having done nothing, but then when we do, they will come to verify that.
 
Well, it seems I have 2 new shiny goals to work towards. Gladly so!
I wish you the best! The number of IT people in the Forums can be measured with the fingers of one hand, so having more will be a luxury and an investment into future projects.
 
I like it a lot, I see it the same as in the knight and ilustried societies as one was rising in rank according to their work and merits.
 
The Badge system is very well done. Congratulations to all JoS members who have given their time and effort over the years and have now received these badges!

I'm extremely glad and proud we have so many likeminded people here who have put in their work out of their own desire and will to see our community grow and improve.
We are where we are in large part thanks to you all!
 
This is another exceptional initiative. I was thinking of what could be done so that members could be categories and also ranked on the basis of trust and contribution. This is the best way to do it, in my opinion. Fantastic idea!
 
Congratulations!🙂🔥 to those who received there badges. It is an honor to achieve. And a pleasure to work for. And it makes me happy to see so many people receive one. And I've noticed a lot of new people have received their badge. And I know that it's worth the time and energy, coming up with many ways to help out in the community. I am looking forward to receive mine in the near future as well. ❤️🙂
 
There are some members that miss badges according to criteria above. For example, Fuchs has only one badge, but I also believe Fuchs deserves translator badge, because I remember Fuchs working on German translation with me, NinRick and couple other people.

I hope in time people who performed valuable work will get proper recognition, I understand it might take time for this to implement fully.

They are all getting it, no question about that. Thank you all for your excellent work for the website. Be blessed always.
 
I love the badges! Those sporting them have worked hard for the JoS and its integrity, making it a welcome place for all. It also inspires me to improve, to go above and beyond plus a little extra. I expect this begins with researching JoS websites (including old forums), applying what we learn in our lives and being active in the JoS community and its activities. We all have different strengths and weaknesses yet together we are this immense force in that we all help each other via informing and supporting our brothers and sisters, thereby helping each other gain the best tools to find success and fulfilliment.

I feel strongly that areas I've lacked have been supplemented through the contributions of others. There's no community in the world quite like this one. Congratulations to all our members for their achievements! May the Gods be with you all!
 
I'm not sure why HPSes have Satan's sigil as a badge. Why not Baalzebul - HPs, Astrate - HPSes, Azazel - Guardians, and Satan the whole JoS.

It's not about gender. If there are other female clergy in the future, perhaps they will have a different badge. But mine will remain Satan's.

I still don't know which badge means what.
On the phone it shows nothing.
It would be nice to have a small image above the badge type, for example per badge.
