Look as Barman says mate everyone well those of us who have long memberships know the badges are just a recognition thing and I for one find your posts really very helpful and you have taught me a fair bit since being on the forum.
I know it is all a bit concerning for new members but it took me two years to get just the greeen pips
when I got those dangly things well that was a just a bonus and really doesn't mean that I ma much good in fact I would be the first to admit to being still a novice. I do this for a hobby because a really bad shoulder fracture gold prospecting stopped my motor cycling and woodwork days and always been into electronics - yes vacuum tubes
left me with a hobby I can pursue albeit as an amateur.
