First, thank you everyone for making Parentree one of the most useful parental resources in India. Today we are introducing a new feature to Parentree - "I Know You" badges.
A Badge is a mark that is either earned by you or given to you. The first badge we have introduced is the "I Know You" badge. A user can give this "I Know You" badge to a "friend" to certify and vouch that they know the friend very well and have met them.
Purpose of the I Know You badge: This badge is given by one Parentree user to another to show that they know them very well and have met them in person. This badge is intended to increase the trust in our community. When you see a posting or a review from a user, you can check their profile to see if they are a parent that other parents know in person.
Rules for the I Know You badge: The badge should only be given if you know the other user and have met them. For each badge you receive, you can give one badge to another user. To give this badge to a parent, you have to be their friend first.
Notes about the I Know You badge: As much as possible, give the badge to a different parent from the one who gave it to you. This increases the availability of badges across the community.
A few users in our community can give an unlimited number of badges - shobha, sathya, mango_mama, and mickey.
For now these people will start off giving "I Know You" badges and kickstart the badge giving. As each of you start receiving badges please turn around and distribute them to other parents in the community.
