How to get a Tipster Badge on ITNinja?

I hate to be harsh, but you just can't get one...

I have over 17 tips, and the founder of the site has 220 Deployment tips and even he does not have this badge. So, for me it remains the carrot that just cannot be reached.


Tipster Tipster 25 Posting five approved software tips
Tipster Pro coming soon +5 Posting ten approved software tips
Tipster Ninja coming soon TBD Posting more than twenty five approved software tips

and if your reading this Bob Kelly, I'm just teasing... I love the site, and enjoy getting my rank up by helping others solve head scratching IT problems, that at one time or another, have stumped all of us.

You found us out. This is a known bug that we've not yet addressed ;) Once we get it fixed, it will take just one more tip to see that you are over the minimum required and grant you the patch. When? I don't answer trick questions (but this did help shine a light on it so it's moving up the priority list now). Thanks!

  • No biggie... just plugging away trying to get my Ninja Status. On a side note, are there any more shirts, and is it possible to earn one? :-P - ekgcorp 10 years ago
    • Yes, there are still shirts; all the rewards are still available. I'm trying to get an inventory (and budget for more) now and will post an update. In fact quite a lot of rewards just shipped this week. - bkelly 10 years ago

      • sounds good... Cause I went from Orange to Black belt in about a months time, just from switching to be a more active users, instead of a casual, just check when I needed help user.

        I guess you get notified via email before anything is sent out? Reason being is I don't have my address on my profile. - ekgcorp 10 years ago
    • Without an address we can't send anything, so please do add that to your profile. There is a disconnected process for actually sending stuff out (no email notifications). Things should just show up. - bkelly 10 years ago
      • ok.. I am in compliance now. :-) - ekgcorp 10 years ago
  • it seems that the Tagger badge is also not being applied. - anonymous_89761 10 years ago
    • This is true-- I hope to have the Tagger badge working soon! - bkelly 10 years ago
