Hi Kirsch !!
You have the talent to produce better graphics, and you have creativity, no doubt. You are helping others with your graphics work, it is also true. If you dont mind, I have a suggestion for you.
Just carry on good works. Make not only sigs, but walls, and other types of graphics. Compel everybody believe that you are up to that honor .
If you can (I believe that you can), the GFX badge is just a matter of time.
And most important, always have a polite behavior. Dont hesitate to pat others.
So carry on, pal
