We’ve stopped using the old Flash-based image uploader, which was not working in Chrome. The new one is cross-browser compatible. Enjoy! And remember — PNG files only, under 150K.
We’ve upgraded our badge-baking protocol from the 0.5 version to the 1.0 version. If you have trouble loading an existing badge into your backpack (particularly on Badger), try finding it in your dashboard and re-baking it. If you’re having any issues, drop us a line and we can probably do it for you.

If you get an account at Mozillians, you can create badges there as well.
There’s more to our badges technology than Pirate Adventure. We’ve rolled it out and adapted it to several other uses as well.
The Stillman School uses a version to manage the Stillman Passport. Events are created as badge-like events, and participants are credited when they attend.
The new SAIL program is also using a version. Among the refinements are the ability to use a swipe-card reader to credit attendees.
Plus, several other institutions have borrowed our code and successfully adapted it for use in their own programs.
If your department or organization needs a way to manage and track complex events or assignments, get in touch with TLTC and maybe we can make this work for you as well!

Earn a badge by attending this one-day training through the NCBI chapter at Seton Hall. The workshop is designed to expand your skills on diversity and learn new ones; meet and interact with others regarding issues of difference in a supportive setting; learn how to be an ally; and learn how to interrupt prejudicial jokes, remarks and slurs.
The workshop is open to the entire Seton Hall community (all students, faculty, and staff), but in particular freshmen students and leaders on student organizations with the stated purpose of diversity are targeted for this program.
The last session is December 7, so get started signing up now!
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a national program designed to provide trained volunteers that can serve as first responders during a disaster when traditional emergency response (police, fire, EMS) is delayed. CERT personnel can also assist the traditional responders. CERT skills are also useful for family disaster preparedness. SHU has a body of CERT volunteers consisting of staff, students, and faculty.
Participate in/complete the leadership training provided by Mike Domitrz on October 16, 2012 4pm and 7pm to earn the “Can I Kiss You? Leader Badge.” Watch for the location, and be sure to swipe in!
