I’ve added badges for total credit (for users and teams) and total number of different COD entries processed (only for users).

The steps for total credit are:

    10,000 (graphite)
    100,000 (bronze)
    1,000,000 (silver)
    10,000,000 (gold)
    100,000,000 (diamond)


The x-ray powder diffraction patterns of respective materials are shown on the badges (since the diffraction pattern of ordinary gold and silver look identical, I used the diffraction pattern of hexagonal gold nanostructured films for the gold).

The steps for total number of different COD entries processed are:

    1,000; 2,000; …; 9,000 (bronze)
    10,000; 20,000; …; 90,000 (silver)
    100,000; 200,000; 300,000 (gold)

May we assume that these will be exported for various badge sites? (And thank you for following through on getting badges implemented!)

Just wondering if you have contacted the Badges signature site at https://signature.statseb.fr/ to add your project to members signatures.

You can email to stats@statseb.fr

All the information about the badges is available at http://xansons4cod.com/xansons4cod/stats/ in XML format. I've already asked https://signature.statseb.fr to add this project to their list. If you know of other sites that collect statistics on badges, please let them know that this project now assigns badges.

The badges do look nice, and aren't over-involved. Maybe someone can score above 300K results and get a platinum badge lol...

A minor observation, no big deal. I just got my 100 Million Total Badge that is supposed to be Diamond. The background to this is the same as the 1 Million badge, i.e silver. I see nothing that resembles Diamond. The only difference is that the 1M has 3 Black circles completed and the 100M has 5. Confusing. In fact we dropped from Gold to Silver. It is hard to differentiate between Silver and Diamond.

I thought you might like to know.

I partly agree. When you do 3 levels of badges there is an obvious choice, but for 5 levels you have to come up with something. Not to defend the badges but just to explain my decision, since this project aimed at computing the diffraction pattern, the badges show the powder diffraction patterns of graphite, bronze, silver, gold (gold nanofilms actually) and diamond, respectively (black lines). For the first four badges, the diffraction patterns are complemented with the backgrounds. Making the diamond-like background would violate the common style of the badges, so I decided to make a platinum background for a diamond badge, however, platinum, indeed, looks almost like silver. Still, if you compare, "silver" and "diamond" badges side to side you'll see the difference. Also, the background of the "diamond" badge looks "better" to me.

Of course, the fine details are not seen on the BOINC signature, that is why the circles were introduced, so anyone can see the badge level even on the signature.

4 lowest badges use different colors for their backgrounds. Diamond one uses silver b/g with different gradient pattern, so it may be confused with silver badge. Additionally in small version it looks more like corrugated sheet than diamond - diamond cuts creates sharp edges which are missing here.

I'm not that bothered by it, I know what they look like but...

1) Perhaps a Badges page linked to from the main page showing all the badges in one place would help.
2) If you wanted to put more effort in maybe change the diamond badge to have 5 diamond shapes instead of circles.
3) Last suggestion would be to but some Braille symbols down the left hand edge of the badges so people can touch their monitor screen and feel the difference ;-)
