Back in late November I began a thread as I was concerned that due to the DDoS attacks on the forum, and as such being unable to log in on the days affected, I would be unable to obtain my ‘Devotee’ forum badge.
However, the thread did span out into several other areas of discussion, and I did not recieve a straight answer on this subject. However, other members dutifully came foward to inform me that they still recieved their Devotee badges despite the disruption caused by the DDoS attacks. So I decided that I would leave the issue be for now, and see if I still recieve my badge in due time.
To the absolute best of my knowledge and recollection* (although it was one year ago, so please forgive any inaccuracies), I have logged into to the forum every day now since I first joined, meaning that I should have recieved the Devotee badge on the 9th December 2019. However, more than one month has now elapsed since my anniversary date on the forum, and I still have not been awarded my Devotee badge (possibly due to the DDoS interuption). This badge represents a significant amount of time and dedication for me; one year of consistent participation to fulfil the criterion. I have been very patient, and given it over one month to be awarded now. However I still have not recieved it. It is not fair that I should have to miss out on my badge due to the action of lousy crooks. Therefore I would like to ask someone:
Q: Could someone please be kind enough to look into this and give me a straight answer as to what is happening with my Devotee badge?
